    Left absolutely speechless.
    Anime and puzzles, two of my favorite things put in one. I love this series so much, and I'm very glad I got to take the time and watch it (just before I go back to school!) because Phi-Brain gave me almost everything I wanted in an anime. The characters were fantastic, and the story was able to match, all to my surprise. The development of this story was far better than I had ever imagined it to ...

  • Are you a Phi Brain?
    This series was definitely interesting but I admit that season 2 is where you might lose people as far as interest goes. 1st and 3rd Season are definitely the best and the characters are enjoyable (you're bound to have at least a couple of favorites that you like). The plot was excellent; the only thing is that you really have to get all the way to the middle of the 3rd season for things to start ...

    I really wanted to like this... Puzzle Time
    I don't know... like I really wanted to like this,... but...

    The story - the characters are ok, but their motivations are not clear or made up on the spot or just illogical... like most of the stories involve some weird possessive friendship angles or fake memories. Actually it makes no sense a lot of how the characters are tied to the story.

    Puzzles - The puzzles, well some of them are ...

  • Interesting start . . . hmmmmmm
    I think I was prepared for this to not be good, just from the title. But was surprised to find it extremely interesting. It makes you think about the world a little different. And the characters are different. I guess I have watched so many animes that I find a lot of them the same. This has to be the only one I ever seen about puzzles. Way to go.

    Good start and bad finish.
    This anime was really interesting in the early episodes. Solving dangerous puzzles to earn prizes and eventually solve the puzzle of god. The story was captivating and the characters were pretty good from the start. Then everything became kind of ridiculous. The bad guys in an effort to stop the solvers use puzzles instead of physically stopping the person with force. It all went in a totally ...

    Good Idea Bad Execution
    The original idea about an anime where people solves puzzles seemed interesting and I thought it would be something like Death Notes, with mind games and psychological aspects. In reality it was big huge disappointment. The storyline is childlike in its simplicity and the characters are one dimensional and way too naive and impossible.

    I couldn't enjoy the storyline
    The premise of the show is awful. People run around making giant "puzzles"/traps which usually don't survive one use as they usually end up destroying themselves in the process of trying to kill the person attempting the puzzle. If they wanted someone dead and had those resources, they should've just shot him. Now bizarre storylines can be ok/great if the show is not so serious or there is genuine ...

  • Really enjoyable and cool
    Many of the puzzles were really cool and unique. The angles of where the puzzles would go and the character's relation to them made this easy to watch and extremely intriguing. In addition, the story line is fabulous, and the characters have a nice balance that sometimes surprise you with who they really are.

    Really god but, not amazing
    I love this show so much but, it's just not one of those shows that I would put down as my favourite. The story is defiantly really enjoyable and so are the characters. I would really recommenced this to a lot of my friends; except for the ones that are looking for a romance or a comedy. There are some love moments but, it's very rare and though the characters are funny, this show was never meant ...
