    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!

  • 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.

  • Hoping there is a season 3 ;'D
    Amazing art work, plot and character development! I have seen many anime but this is one of my favorite! its fantasy (powers, spirits and demons) and adventure(trips, tasks/missions) hint of fighting action here and there but the story and how it builds up and unravels is simply amazing!. Shino's development and background story hits all the feels. dont read too much of the story online just watch ...

  • Masterpiece! I loved it all the way through!
    Miyuki Abe has created a masterpiece! An author who mostly writes shounen-ai/boys love, decides to create one a little less passionate- which is not a bad thing at all.

    Instead of romance, we see feelings of love toward companions and most of all, family. I get bits of nolstagia here and there:
    1. Shino and Sousuke's relationship reminds me of Kuroshitsuji sometimes as Sousuke jokingly ...

  • Great anime! I love it.
    It's a really good anime. The characters are nice. And the storyline is pretty nice. It's not everyday I stumble upon a story that has both interesting, good-looking characters with a nice plot line. It has a lot of mysteries, most of which you know the gist of it but still mysterious because it's not completely unfolded. I wish it would uncover the mysteries a little better but it gives a good ...

  • !!!!!GREAT Anime!!!!!
    I am GLAD that I clicked on this anime in my mile long queue!! From the story buildup to the small hints of BL throughout the series, this anime has to be one of the most interesting and well written(and produced) anime I have ever seen! For anyone who's hesitating on whether to watch this anime or not, I suggest you do so. I promise you, the story will hook, mesmerize, and slowly kill you ...

  • Great Action Anime Beautifully Illustrated
    I clicked on this just to see what it was about and ended up binge watching it through the weekend. I wish they would do more seasons. This anime has it all - good storyline, fight scenes, good characters, etc and is so beautifully illustrated. I think it is drawn better than Naruto or Natsume (though I am a fan of both) and has it's own good story to tell. I recommend it.
