  • Definitely worth a look
    I kept looking at this on the Shows List for ages, and only started watching it the other week. I'm pleasantly surprised, so far the storyline is starting to develop nicely and the characters are well presented. It's starting to pick up and get more interesting too now

I wasn't so sure to begin with whether a 12 year old boy was a ...

  • Good but not setting my world on fire.
    This anime just lacked something for me. It might appeal to a great many people but just didnt float my boat so well.

    The setting is good and the characters each have their own individuality. There are degrees of mysteriousness and some characters fuel this more than others. The characters are the main driving force of this and the overarching story across the two seasons is nice for some ...
