    Sometimes great, sometimes confusing, rushed ending
    I want to qualify this review by saying that there are episodes of Mekakucity Actors that are those of a 5 star show. Since spoilers abound in just describing this short series, I'm going to just say that even though it has the premise of a group of superhuman teenagers and young people, this is actually a fairytale.

    The art is very interesting, it's probably what I liked the most about this ...

    Beautiful... but a little too complicated....
    What kept me watching Mekakucity Actors was the beautiful animation and the superb art direction. I loved the characters and their relationships with each other.

    That being said...

    I found myself having a hard time keeping up with the plot and every time I thought I understood, the next episode would just confuse me again (Though, maybe I just didn't get it). I loved the first few episodes ...

    Pleasing but convoluted
    This anime is a two sided coin. On one hand I appreciate the story for its zero-to-hero formula, the easily understood niche character personalities, and the tacit art style of Aniplex. On the other hand, this short anime continues to peeve me with its relentless back-story unveiling which disrupts the present development in any one character. Essentially, this is a fine anime to watch if you love ...

    Fascinating, Beautiful, a bit confusing
    I have not followed the manga or song series, so I am just judging the anime in and of itself.
    The plot premise started as the "kids with powers" stereotype, which was an initial turnoff. However, as the plot deepened through the episodes, it rose above the stereotype. However, the complex backstory was a bit difficult to grasp.
    The character are all rich, likable and well developed. They are ...

    Really good anime! :D
    This anime is really hard to understand if you haven't read the manga or heard the songs, because its different storylines and point of views in some of the episodes.

    However, this anime is really worth to watch if you like Shaft's animation style and deep storyline-kind of animes. But really some parts of episodes feels like filler,, so not perfect.

    After 2 years it's released
    I've been waiting for this since they announced it, only watched the PV's i didn't want to watch the manga because i was hoping it wouldn't take to much time.. I must say that the anime is what I was expecting. If you liked the songs you will love it

    Weird but still very good!
    I cant really say much about the anime but, What I can say is that it's very weird but really good. You will need to pay attention to it very well or you'll miss something impotent. It can get very confusing at times and just doesn't makes seance at other times, But (If you've bin paying attention) you'll get it by the end of an episode. Then again it's still very well done and the art style is ...

    Takes a bit to get into
    Yeah... at first I was pretty confused but now everything is coming together and its just pretty mesmerizing!! If you listened to the original songs they might be a bit off to you though but the adaptations are good in their own special way :D. Just give it a bit and you'll get into it

    Might be my favorite anime this season
    If you like shows that really play with continuity, this anime is incredibly successful in that regard. All the twists & turns within the show are laid out very well so far, and that's enough to keep me coming back every week.

    But in addition to that, the art style is really colorful and looks good. It reminds me of something inbetween Durarara!! and Gatchaman Crowds. Just as well, the ...

    Why I am in love with Mekakucity Actors
    I started following the Kagerou Project from JIN about six months before Mekakucity Actors came out finally and I fell in Love with it. It's a really good show that contains lots of feels and Mystery. The Fact the show is finally out means I get to wait until the next Saturday to see the new episode reminding me of my younger days when I waited for the new episode of Pokemon.
