    Freaking Shaft does it again...
    Well.

    Just one episode has been released, and I don't know anything about the complete story, so as to whether this breaks down later or not is immaterial to me, but if you even for a second were intrigued by Shaft's other major production in the Monogatari series, this will rivet you to your seat.

    The dialogue is charming and deep, with the same ADHD camera movement seen in Monogatari, but ...

    My Opinion so far on Mekakucity Actors
    Before the anime there was the manga and the songs on mekakucity actors.
    It's a unique anime in my opinion. The art so far seen is very similar to the manga , I haven't finished the manga but I know where story is about to go. The characters are entertaining. Each person has their own story . From what I heard from the manga some of the characters have powers or talents? The first episode related ...

  • Surprisingly Good and a Marathon Must
    Just finished marathoning this anime myself. If you're looking for awesome fight scenes this isn't the show for you, this is much more of a mystery-drama than a shonen. The story is well written, but you will have to pay close attention because this show is full of easter-egg foreshadowing.
    When the show was first airing I passed on it because I expected it to be bad, but upon friendly ...

  • A brilliant puzzle worth the watch!
    I was drawn to Mekakucity Actors when I first listened to their Vocaloid integration in the Jin album, and from that point on, I fell in love with this anime. Clear your mind and watch as the story of a group of kids with powers figure out their purposes in a tiny world. But theres a twist; each episode is in a different place, a different time, and with different ...

    Mekakusucky actors???
    I was caught up in the hype of this series, built up so high and dropped off a ledge. This anime is way over hyped, it had a promising start with huge plot potential but threw it all away. If you expect something huge and new from this series, don't. This anime will leave you feeling empty in the worst way possible. It had great potential but does not elaborate on anything. episode 1 - 5 will be ...

    Filled with mostly boring dialogue and some scraps of an interesting story
    What people seem to like about this series is its style, being similar to the Monogatari series, but that alone did not make up for its lack of substance. Most of the episodes are slow paced and don't seem to make good use of its time. The dialogue ranged between pointless and informative. It just failed to engage me. I don't know if they chose the Monogatari style to draw in fans of the ...

    Puzzling yet Intriguing
    At first this anime just seems very run-of-the-mill, but once you get a few episodes in, you'll find yourself wound up. While it doesn't make much sense at first, this anime keeps you guessing and doesn't answer any questions until the very end. The only downside I can think of is that it's quite heavy on the flashbacks.

  • Sometimes great, sometimes confusing, rushed ending
    I want to qualify this review by saying that there are episodes of Mekakucity Actors that are those of a 5 star show. Since spoilers abound in just describing this short series, I'm going to just say that even though it has the premise of a group of superhuman teenagers and young people, this is actually a fairytale.

    The art is very interesting, it's probably what I liked the most about this ...

    Awesome. Just, awesome.
    This is a great anime. I've seen many things about this before (as in songs) and they were perfect. This is an awesome anime and people should totally watch it and listen to the songs. The story line is confusing though,
    Though confusing ...

    Very similar to the "Monogatari" series.
    This anime, as the title of this review suggest. Is very similar to the monogatari series. In almost every aspect by far. Meaning if comes with the ups and downs of monogatari. Plot holes, hard to follow, enjoyable characters (i believe anyways), the unique way that it's animated. Etc. Now as much as I resent saying this, I don't mean to compare this to monogatari and souly monogatari, but I'm ...
