  • It's awesome, right from the start.
    I was looking to CR library, and I found this.. I was a little skeptical, but I am glad that I watched it.

    It's really worth your time, it's great - the story, the opening, the characters; are all well done! I recommend it.

    Fairly good but not good enuf!
    I qutite like the concept of this anime, but It has and annoying chilidish humor which started out cute, but as I had said is annoying. For this reason if it were to continue going from a serious tone to an overly active humor I will have an epileptic attack. I like this story and it has great potential, so far the scheme isn't hooking me or holding up to this potential it has. I guess there is a ...

    Failed Potential....
    The idea and concept of this anime are good. The anime itself is not. It can be quite boring and parts border on annoying. The writing fails and is unoriginal. A few of the episodes seem like old Agatha Christie type mysteries done with a supernatural slant. Actually, one episode was basically straight out of a Stephen King novel. Many have compared it to Gosick. That's an insult to the ...

    Very curious story I've ever seen
    I've been watching many Japanese animes but this is a little bit different from other ones. Dantalian is Latain name but Hugh Anthony is, of course, English name and they look like being in England. That's OK, even it sounds a little bit odd. She looks like Victorique of Gosick. The story is very curious.

    Excellent Anime, very addictive to watch.
    In the hopes of finding something cute to watch with a good story line and good animation, I gave Dantalian a chance and was well rewarded. The beginning episodes are cute, and as the story picks up, it leaves you wanting more. The characters are fun, and the animation is great, as is the story. Highly recommended.
