    Fun but nothing great
    This review is based upon impressions from the first 2 episodes of the anime, plus having read the first two volumes of the manga. I'll edit it as I see more, if my impressions change.

    Pretty orphan boy finds a bunch of pretty demon-fighting relatives, and a hot bodyguard who fell in love with him in a former life when he was a female. This story is fairly typical for supernatural shoujo-ish ...

    This Anime is YUMMY!!
    This becomes pretty interesting anime by going into demons, rebirth and some unknown past that has never been clear as well as manipulation from both sides of friend and foe. And then theres Luka who's voice and words of his undying loyalty might just stop your heart. This is pretty much a Bishoen with a light yaoi setting.

  • Interesting - Worth Watching
    I would recommend this series. I liked the uniqueness of the story and the characters, but the execution could be better. I enjoyed watching the series but at times, the scenes dragged on and towards the end, Yuki's internal conflict seemed slightly repetitive.

    No, it's not yaoi, however...
    No. This series is not yaoi. However...

    It has everything that makes yaoi great, except the act itself. And if you reject this series because of that lack, if you call yourself a yaoi fan but you don't enjoy this series simply because of that lack, then you are not a yaoi fan.

    You are a porn fan.

    And you know what? That's fine. Be a porn fan, do your thing, there isn't anything wrong ...

  • Reminiscent of CLAMP
    This series was very similar to some works by CLAMP, not only in plot but artistically as well. I really liked the characters, even the supporting ones, but the series as a whole seems to be missing something. Perhaps I'll find that something by reading the manga, but I'm hoping that if they make a second season they will expand on the relationship between the two main characters. (ie: make it ...

  • Was My First Anime!!
    Ok so this is the first anime I ever watched when I started. It was a really good leader in. I loved the characters and although the story does move a bit slow, it made me want to know more about them. This also made me get into reading manga as I wanted to know what happens after the anime finished. I have been a crazed anime and mange freak ever since and can't get enough.

    Also this is on a ...

    Bishounen yes, but the story and main character is atrocious.
    'Betrayal Knows My Name' seemed like a promising anime with my interest lying in the central plot (or what I originally thought was the central plot prior to completing the anime) of Yuki and Luka. In Yuki's past life he and Luka fell deeply, and madly, in love. Luka finds Yuki again in his next life (reincarnated as a male) and stays by his side for the entire 24 episode run.

    Up front that ...

  • This is one awesome anime
    If you're searching for some yaoi, you're definitely in the wrong place. Try World's First Greatest Love bc that's some yaoi there.
    But, nevertheless, this is one of the best action animes I have ever watched. It has some underlying themes of romance but nothing that shoves it in your face. In this anime, you can see how people love each other regardless of all other obstacles and it's freaking ...

  • This series is awesome
    This anime is so great. I watched it on youtube some time ago. The art is pretty good too. I recommend reading through the manga because there is so much that is there that you'll enjoy. I am not a huge fan of romance type shows but this one was not so focused on that. At least that's how I feel about it. Very interesting take on God's warriors and their enemies.

    Good series! But labeled incorrectly.
    Aw, for those of you who are wondering, what I meant by "labeled" incorrectly, I meant that this series is tagged "yaoi". This series, while having some defiant shonen-ai themes, contains NO boy on boy action. Not even a kiss scene. But it is defiantly not just a strong male friendship; one of them (Luka) is in love with the other one. Now, how to describe this series.... imagine "Black Butler" ...
