    Lots of good ideas, lack of focus.
    Going into Hamatora, my expectations were not that high, but I was pleasantly surprised by the first couple of episodes. The animation especially stands out. The bright colors and smooth designs make it stand out and lend itself to lots of sharp action sequences. And though the plot and setting were nothing especially new (kind of like a Japanese X-men meets Japanese Dick Tracy vibe or something) ...

    Most innovative anime of the season
    From the fascinating requirements for using their powers (called "minimums"), the weaknesses of each, the depth of the relationships, and the willingness of the producers to not keep any character safe, Hamatora proved to be the most interesting and engaging anime of the winter season. It keeps you guessing up to the end. It's an action-packed thriller with a deep and unexpected message. The ...

    ANYways...What first got me so interested was the first episode scene when he was trying to get the 430 yen from the bank! I never seen an anime start of with such nice COLOR! The use of color in this anime is amazing! And, even if there's only 3 episodes out, it leaves you begging for ...

    Pretty Damn Awesome!
    I'll admit, I was a bit skeptical when I was starting this series. But the second I saw Nice and Himeji at that bank, I knew I needed to stay until the end of the episode and find out what this series was all about. And I'm so glad I did! All of the characters are great and extremely diverse, and their abilities have a wave of uniqueness that you don't see in too many series' these days. I was ...

    Great show.....but it has some holes.
    Overall this anime is awesome! The MC is not only strong but he is also really smart. The story is amazing and it reminds you of other tv shows and anime like X-men, Darker than black and Getbackers. The villian is done very well and is also very likeable. The artwork and animation is fantastic. The fight scenes are creative. This show and a habit of going from comdey to drama in just a few ...

    Entertaining but with some major flaws
    The unique and bright art style is what drew me in at first. The first episode was intriguing and seemed to be setting up a decent plot, so I stuck with it.

    Almost immediately the animation quality took a nose dive and the plot became sidelined to a bunch of one-shot cases. The backstories to some characters fell flat, though a few were interesting. Once it got back on track to the plot (not ...

    Progresses very nicely 5/5
    If you don't enjoy it at the first episode, I egg you to keep going. Hamatora caught me at the first episode with the special powers; the minimums. It moved into the story pretty quickly, but I enjoyed it. The effects made the fight scenes really worth it, and the anime is very stylized. As the episodes went on the world expanded, as did the characters. The show introduces many elements ...

    A really good Hero vibe!
    Gotta love the whole Hero atmosphere of this anime, with each protagonist having their own really cool way of life, and ideas. Brilliant animation, colors are spectacular, love the design. Good balance of action and comedy! Really love the colors more than anything =3

    This Goes Somewhere In My Top 5 Anime :D
    I like the concept of minimums (and yes i know it's been used before) and how with each character's unique minimum they have an equally fitting personality to match. I also like how the few clichés don't impact my view on the anime, and regardless of what other people say there is a great plot so far (episode 11 airs in 3 days). And best of all, the soundtrack is freaking amazing.
