    Noragami, but with no charm, bad animation, bad sound design, poorly written and annoying characters, and the most forced plot I've ever seen (Still Bad After Episode 2)
    Here's a video version if you don't want to read 700 words! https://youtu.be/JDqb2CrJ8eI

    *imagine one of those "Bee Movie, but everytime" videos, but for SpiritPact

    Spiritpact, but every time this show makes me want to die, the episode speeds up...

    Oh wait, the video would be too fast for anyone after the first 10 seconds because that's how bad this series ...

    spiritpact -- choppy and annoyingly paced.
    I guess this kind of show really isn't for me. Every season I make it a point to watch one episode of every single show even if its of a genera that I probably wont like. Spiritpact felt a bit like a BL/scifi/fanservice type anime just from the plot synopsis. I guess if that's the type of thing you are looking for then you will be somewhat satisfied if you can make it past the annoying delivery ...

    Easily worst show of 2017 opening block
    I usually don't beat up on shows but this Chinese imitation of anime (we get the Japanese dub here) had such choppy animation and ill paced writing, I actually felt compelled to warn others to stay away. If you need something to fall asleep to this may be it, but basically viewer beware.

    So much potential completely ruined
    I saw this as a upcoming anime and was quite excited for it as the story sounded very interesting to see how it played out. Fast forward to the end of the first episode and its pretty damn clear they got a story too big for them to actually play out well and by that I mean there is so much potential for the story to be really in depth and have a lot of meaning but there is none, for example we ...

    Charming Donghua Centered Around the Relationship of the Two Male Leads
    Expect very mild spoilers in this review.

    Known as "Ling Qi" in Chinese (and more commonly translated as Soul Contract), Spiritpact is a supernatural series that centers around the growing relationship between the two male protagonists. The series is humorous and lighthearted, but becomes more serious in the latter half of the show. You can expect a lot of homoerotic subtext throughout the ...

    Potential but currently not so good
    I think some people need to calm down. Totally dissing a show after 1 episode is stupid.
    Yes, it is too fast paced, yes the main character may be annoyingly energetic, and yes the animation feels a bit 'choppy' but I'd give it three episodes before harsly judging.
    Noragami would be a similar anime that is quite good(I'd recommend that before watching this) I hope it does improve as I like the ...

    A Chinese anime translated into Japanese; an interesting premise, interesting plot, good character development, sub-par animation
    I didn't get the totally negative impression a lot of the other reviewers did. I agree that the animation lacks fluidity by today's standards, however, it had an engaging storyline and it's Chinese dubbed into Japanese with English subtitles, so the mouth movements don't match up well. For the main protagonist to die within the first minute of a series takes some guts. The first battle he fights ...

    First Impressions: Episode 1
    The premise for this didn't sound too bad, so I went ahead and added it to my queue and later sat down to watch the first episode. I quit half way through--and that was after skipping ahead a few times when I couldn't bare the protagonist's dialogue / personality.

    Maybe this is one of those shows that will get better with time (maybe), but as far as first impressions go, it's a little painful ...

    the whole show feels super rushed and barely makes sense.
    its honestly not worth the time. I almost never review on the first episode unless it proves something to me, and this show proved that it was poorly written and even more poorly executed. Character progression is non existent, and the story line is all over the place.

  • I love this anime. Dont judge it too soon.
    I seen the original with the Chinese voices, and I love it. Shouldn't be judging just after 1 or 2 episodes. Honestly this is more of a bond and or trust between a spirit and his contractor and their battles with other evil spirits and within themselves. Also this anime is base on an still ongoing chinese web manga, as by the time I post this review. And to add this has somewhat of an Shounen-Ai ...
