    Very well thought out anime wish there was more to it.
    I had heard many wonderful reviews of this anime in particular so I decided to give it a look and what I saw really did live up to the hype. True it was an anime off the beaten track of Bleach or dare I say it Blue Exocist, but it had quite a bit of integrity and heart. The characters were very relateable even lovely especially Felicita who was well suited for the Lovers Tarot. Then of course you ...

    Episode 1 = amazing! Episode 2 -5 = Horrendous.
    Wow where to begin. The first episode was perfect as a pilot episode. It showed all the characters, enough to make you curious. The plot was shown with no mishaps or confusion. And there was comedy in between. Great. I was really looking forward to episode 2.
    And then I saw it.
    Not only did they have a filler, they did the ultimate taboo of bad fillers. The "Lets do an errand for the ENTIRE ...

    Nicely delivered with strong story and characters
    Coming from a viewer that has played both Arcana Famiglia games, I had a high expectation for this anime, but at the same time I prepared a cushion for myself so if the anime fall short of the game (which happens often for adaptations) I wouldn't be so thoroughly disappointed.

    After watching the first episode, I can finally throw the cushion away and thoroughly enjoy this amazing show.

    Many ...

    Filler...by Episode Two??
    Normally I would never review a show after two episodes. It's not enough time to give the writers a chance to flesh out the plot or characters. Yet this anime is an easy exception.

    The first episode was questionable. It was obviously a reverse harem, light comedy, action-without-violence summer popcorn fun. Obviously aimed for a younger audience when the character who has a contract with the ...

    Don't waste your time.
    It had serious potential, with the characters and the plot, I was excited after watching the first episode, but by thirty seconds into the second, I was disgusted and it only got worse with each episode thereafter. By the end it was flat out dull. Total anime fail.

    Ultra cliched characters and dialogues
    I'll start with the positives. There are two things that are good about this show; first is the animation quality and second is the concept of the plot.

    However, the incredibly cliched characters and their awkward conversations made this show really annoying and hard to watch.

    Potentially good anime turned terribly rushed and had a horrible ending.
    Up until episode 12 I had lots of fun watching this anime. Sure, it could've been nice for it to have more action and less talk, but it was a nice thing to watch for 20mins every weekend alongside some other anime. The characters are well designed and I was getting into it more and more as the anime progressed, it was nice knowing more about the characters backstories and such.

    However - it was ...

    First Episode Leaves A Lot To Be Desired
    Hard to tell where this series will go, but the first episode makes it look like an average reverse-harem series. Everything here is fairly average and not-special. We have the bevvy of one dimensional young guys, all equipped with weapons and special powers. They must protect an island that resembles Sicily. There is only one girl, and she seems to dislike all the guys (seems to.....). And ...

    Enjoyable but Wanting
    The idea was perfect to have these different groups with powers try to compete and have a tournament. We didn't get a good tournament after it was hyped up the entire season. This anime, I feel, was misleading and disappointing. I would not recommend it to anyone.
