    Passed my expectations.
    I have had my doubts as well when I came about this anime. Slightly reluctant, even after reading reviews, I began to test out the anime and over time, I surprisingly found myself absorbed and completely into this series. Humor, action, tragedy, and even a spoonful of shonen-ai kept me completely lost in the anime, but not in a bad way. Though the plot at first might be confusing for some, ...

    Amazing Story and Great Characters!
    I was skeptic coming into this series but was surprisingly pleased and was surprised at how little people know of this or watch this anime. The story can be a little slow for some people but I find that it keeps the audience well engaged in how the plot will uncover in the end. Definitely a story that keeps you thinking of the possibilities and creates a unique environment compared to many other ...

    Surprisingly interesting
    Started watching this anime expecting mainly action with enough story to carry it. It delivers the reverse, but with a surprisingly compelling story. The second season is much more interesting than the first. Can't wait to see how this develops.

    Very good, but one warning.
    Do not watch this Anime expecting a ton of action! This is a character driven drama before anything else, and the fights tend to be very brief. It's beautiful though, and I suggest it otherwise! It's easily one of the most interesting anime I've seen in terms of the setting being what it is, and the characters are funny.

    I Still Continues :)
    Wow! New characters, new creatures, and a lot more surprises and mystery to solve. I believe the next season is going to be epic. Probably more fighting, and more suspense within each characters lives. Can't wait for the next episodes coming out soon.

    Awesome anime. Eye-catching and heartwarming.
    This anime has really grown into one of my favorites. Sometimes it can get serious, but there are just enough touching moments and comedy sprinkled that makes it perfect. I love fantasy aspect of the anime and can't wait to learn more about his powers and destiny. It's heartwarming how close Sosuke and Shino are. I also think it's great they keep meeting such interesting characters and making ...

    Interesting anime...
    So far it's really good! I love the art, story plot and characters!. The story plot is not confusing and the art is beautiful. but i kind of wish there is going to be more girls in the series so i'll stay tuned for that later in the series. The OP and ED is not disappointing and instead great! So i recommend that this is a must watch series for 2013!
    Gambatte Bandai Visual!
