    緋色の欠片。 Just Simply Amazing.
    This anime。 I think it is a really good one and has gotten a lot better as it continued. At first i was iffy about it but as I kept going on with the series I found myself unable to wait for the next episode to become available. I recommend it

    Nothing new or unique...
    There is nothing new or unique in this anime that hasn't been used before. I thought that maybe it was just the way too slow pace they set for the show but no... it really doesn't get any better it's completely boring.

    Great works, Good storyline, Could be better paced
    I think I read a lot of reviews like what I'm about to write. I just want to agree and voice my opinion.

    After the first episode, I thought this was going to be an interesting series. Action started right off the bat, hot guy was introduced and story was formed. But, as I continued to watch, the story started to drag. I wanted to so much like everything about this show. The animation was ...

    Forgiveable flaws!!!
    In spite of the poor pacing of this series, the characters are endearing, the setting is lush, and the plot, while not entirely unique, is a strong one. This anime is mainly aimed at fans of the game - which has not been released in the English language.

    I don't know what people are expecting from an otome game heroine when they criticize Tamaki's "uselessness" - this isn't a shounen series, ...

    Don't let the art and story line fool you!
    I AM WARNING YOU! This anime is completely useless in my opinion. The story drags and lags. The art tricked me into watching it but after 8 episodes I was yawning and literally forcing myself to watch it. It's a waste of time watching it. I am not a patient person and expect something to prolong but noooo it lags like there's no tomorrow. I don't understand why they even bother making a second ...

  • Careless Characters And Super Slow Plot
    Hiiro no Kakera had a wealth of potential, an interesting plot idea and some of the most well made characters, namely Mahiro, but a story can't lean on it's potential alone. The plot moves at an extremely slow pace, and after a while, none of the characters; protagonist or antagonist, seem motivated, and if the characters in the story don't care for the plotline, why would the audience? Unless the ...

    Recycled premise and characters
    A schoolgirl heroine who suddenly discovers that she's heir to a great spiritual/mystical power, who finds herself guarded by five handsome young men...wait, where have I seen this before?

    Hiiro no Kakera is the latest in a long tradition of anime series featuring similar premises and indeed, a very similar cast of characters. The heroine's five guardians fall broadly into: the shy, ...

    Good artwork, Poor scripting
    The artwork on this show is superb. Unfortunately, it seems like they got some really good artists together, and then flipped a coin to see who would write the story (FYI, looking at the script writer's credits on ANN, this might not be far from the truth.)

    During the first season, I was willing to give it the benefit of the doubt for a very long time. "Character development" I kept telling ...

  • I liked it very much
    Really handsome guys, the plot could move a little faster, because sometimes it gets boring, I only hope they don't get the same kind of ending like in season 1, because i was expecting more, at least something between Tamaki and Takuma, but good, I liked it!

    This show is very weak
    This show is weak dull and strangely paced. The boys although easy on the eyes are uninteresting and bland. There only defining features are hair and eye color, and they each have a hobby. They could easily only be two characters and not loose any complications, you'd have the quiet and supportive one, and then the aggressive/moody and supportive one. The girl is uninteresting but at least she ...
