  • Cool story and characters but lacking protagonist
    Great anime with a nice story, set of characters and artwork. However, the main female protagonist is unfortunately a complete damsel in distress with the guts but no followup. Time and time again, she is placed in situations in which she needs to be saved. This wouldn't be a huge issue if not for the fact that

    *SPOILERS* she possess special "devil" abilities and has been living with ...

  • A great story, with some historical facts joined with some fantasy.
    I loved the whole storyline of this. My title speaks for itself. I loved that based on the time period the historical parts was great and kept me interested and eager to watch more. Then you throw in fantasy about 'devils' and it adds even more interest if you like shows like Inuyasha, which I do. I hope there will be more. I am not seeing season two, then it jumps to season 3, which ...

  • Where's the rest of it???
    This story was beautiful, and completely unfinished. It drew me in, and then left me hanging. If you start this series, be aware that Crunchyroll does not have the second season, and you will have to go elsewhere to finish it out. That was a major buzz kill for me. I already know what a tragedy this story is/will be, and I just don't know if I want to go through the effort to hunt down a tale ...

  • Tries a lot of things, succeeds at none...
    From the getgo this show rubbed me the wrong way. There is no lulling the audience into the story, it's just instant talking from the beginning and the introduction to a slew of characters. It's way too much to start off with. But, I gave it a few more episodes, and even watched most of the second season, which isn't available on CR.

    So, if the show were mostly just about the history of these ...

    Great anime based off an even better game!
    The anime is brilliant, but having played the game on both 3DS and PS3 makes the characters stronger. Regardless, it is well acted and funny, at times, in an extremely dramatic fall of the shogunate. If you like historical romance, I highly recommend it. My recommendation for something similar, but lighter in tone, is Kaze Hikaru.

  • Coming from someone who had played the game series first...
    Honestly, for someone who had gotten acquainted with the video games before the anime even came out, I was not disappointed AT ALL. It's surprising, to me most of all, that I ended up loving this anime, because Amnesia's anime, another video game turned anime by the same company, was very disappointing for me due to the lack of story development without you controlling the MC. Throughout the game ...

  • You should add the entire series
    Its great! It has beautiful swords men ship, restless action and swift movement that make you melt like chocolate but there is only the 1st and 3rd series how about the 2nd and the rest including the OVA? Are you going to add them or leave it be? I and some others want to see the rest, Please add more! Onegai Shimasu Arigato

  • Great show. Love it oh so very much!!
    This series is amazing; started out wonderful and I just loved it. It sucks you in and never wants to let you go!! The art is amazing, the story is not agonizingly slow, and the characters are.. well to put in my squealing, fan-girl mode.. "They are hot pieces of... hehehe :3 "

    Like previous reviews have said, the last 10 episodes (technically Season 2), are not on Crunchroll but they can be ...

    Great show, totally worth watching, with only one flaw
    Before I get into the review, it's worth noting that there are another 10 episodes that are absolutely essential to watch to finish the story that aren't on crunchyroll but can easily be found online. Also, I'm doing my utmost to create a review without spoilers that still describes the show faithfully.

    This show has none of the creepy, pervy upskirt crap that I absolutely hate. It has good ...

  • It's okay!! Wish it had more Romance!
    The guys were hot and I loved that. However, I thought there would be more romance in it. You don't get to anything romantic until the last couple of episodes of season two and crunchyroll don't even have season two. I had to find it on another site.
