    Fire the trainee who did this
    Who in their right mind would leave that filter on? Did they use some sort of HDD recovery program because they lost the entire production or something? Absolutely terrible to watch. Distractingly stupid.

    It starts out with some generic story, then puts the dumbest looking overlay/filter on the entire episode. I've never seen something this retarded.

    What happens when the animators try to channel thier inner artist
    It looks like someone left all the cells (painted in water color) in their backpack overnight and it rained. That distraction makes it incredibly hard to follow the story. I felt like I was watching my 1980's copy of Akria on VHS for the 1,000th time through a dirty player that was plucked from a junk yard....

    As for the story... who knows. I have a sinking feeling that the filters are ...

    SO TERRIBLE YOU'LL GET WATER MARKS ALL OVER YOUR PANTS!
    This show looks like the production team jizzed all over it. It completely ruins the and sense of atmosphere and seems cheap and lazy, not thanks! It's a shame because the animation itself looks to be decent quality and could be really enjoyable if not for the terrible overlays that get spunk all over your screen.

    I'd rather watch Fate or even the dubbed version of Fullmetal Alchemist....what a ...

    Interesting and with depth
    It's a good show. It's a good story.

    Few of things I want to address in response to other reviews I read here:
    1) The creative/artistic license to draw/paint/overlay anything on the frames rests with the show's creators and I find what they did for this one to be Interesting.. yes I was taken aback at first but they are not as lame and detracting as some reviewers make them out to be. They add ...

    What's it all about?
    In addition to the annoying color filter, I don't really get the story. I watched the 2 first episodes and it leads nowhere. At least kill off one "obstacle" per episode, so it's possible to understand what the story is all about. Watching one and a half episode where the protagonist runs around like an idiot, without a clue of what's happening, is kind of booring. I'll file it under "watch when ...

    Reincarnation isn't all it's cracked up to be.
    revised at episode 10.

    This 13 minute anime initially strikes me as a mediocre show playing off historical battles again, but this time set in Chinese history and a twist of occult magic with a card base. I will not compare this to Fate/Stay Night because despite initial similarities they go in different directions. Initially it is heavy on action, and very short on plot or explanation for ...

    Its not a bad show, but it should gave been giving more time before it was showed
    so I get both sides of the story where this show can very suck and the other side where it brings back the old school format of anime. I didn't mind that they used the filters at all ( they could have though a better filter that fit with the still) in the show, the animation is well done and the design of characters was the same. Being that they try to use an old school style for this anime comes ...

    Good but not the best.
    I personally had to take a second to get over the overlays but after a few episodes it kinda grew on me. I like that they try something new with the art, true the story is typical but I will watch this throughout. If you like decent anime give it a few episodes.

    Familiar story, Terrible Overlay Effect
    (Episode:01):

    The story is able to keep my interest so
    far. There isn't anything that I could say is
    bad at this point.

    It is similar to other certain animes,
    but this is only the first episode. So,
    we'll see how this plays out and how
    it'll set itself apart from those.

    The most notable issue is the constant dirty overlay
    effect that is over the entire video. To make it ...

    The filters.... For all that is holy make them go away...
    Ill be honest here, this anime uses some sort of watermarked filter type nonsense with splatters appearing on the screen for no good reason.
    I feels like they tried to be artsy and it fails them.
    The only thing I can recall with vivid detail from Episode 1 ( please note it has not been 2 minutes since I watched the bloody thing. ) is the filter nonsense.
