    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!

  • I watch it all in a night.
    I like the story and the building of charters, along with the way they introduce them.
    I wish they went more in debt with the main charter. It a awesome show to watch in one night, it to short to be anything above a good short story.

    I wish I had more to say, forgive my poor grammar, and spelling.

  • Beautiful and involving, but ultimately disappointing.
    This series has beautiful style and solid writing. The characters are well conceived and consistant. The animation never feels cheap.
    However...
    The pacing sometimes drags. The setup in the first couple episodes has a different feel from the rest of the series. And ultimately I found it anti-climactic.

    Ultimately it's enjoyable and worth a look.

  • Need a Season 3 ASAP!
    One of my favorites so far. The character development, interactions, and relationships are amazing and the animation is beautiful. Want a Season Three! I love the bond between the main cast, and then the Eight towards the end! Adore this so much! Watch It!

  • I liked season 1, but not so much 2
    This show is a bit scattered as far as the story line is concerned. Each episode is interesting enough on it's own, but it just doesn't feel like a cohesive whole. When I got around to season two, I just wasn't interested enough to keep going. Season 1 was entertaining, though, so I'm giving it 4 instead of 3 stars.

  • I'm at a Loss of Words
    because I just finished this anime. I loved it which is an understatement. The character's and their stories have me wanting more! I want to see the group work together on more problems. I want to see more spirits. Ugh, it's so frustrating because this is one of those shows where you wish it was real life, as dumb as that sounds.
