  • Decent anime, not too much horror or occult
    This was a decent anime, some jokes, some excitement, some action.
    But it become something completely different near the end, too much sex-scenes and partial nudity. It was so strange that I had to look up if more people had written about this.

    Regarding the "occult" tag, they did not expand on this too much, there were some backstory, but not too much. Basically they had an idea but for the ...

  • Love and family, the only things stronger than the occult
    This anime was a joy to watch. There was a bit of a snowball effect where everything seemed to blow up out of proportions towards the end but this anime was still a good watch.

    Maya Kumashiro is a hard-boiled highschool student/principal at a school founded on the occult. Fumiaki Uchida (Bunmei) is a time traveler once child prodigy of magic tasked with saving the present and future. These two ...

  • Just watch ep1-3, then jump to 11-13
    The other half is totally a waste of time. The bland plot is seen through after ep3 anyway. The 7 episodes in between are just some standard slice of life filler. It might be OK in other shows. But fighting against the end of world? Seriously?
    It had some potential in the first 2 episodes. After that everything just go down the drain.
    BTW, there is very few to none reference to year 1999. If you ...

    it's ok i guess, but it has lots of plot holes
    Any story with time travel will have plot holes. Be prepared to be upset if you're one of those people who can't stand stories that handle time travel less than perfect.

    Story - 3/5 - Like I said, this plot is a time-travel plot, and you need smart writers to be able to write a good story with a time-travel plot. This anime probably didn't have smart writers, but it was a decent attempt that ...

  • Strange pace, but overall good
    Ep 1-2 come right out of the gate perfectly, but then the episodes seem to slow considerably, right until the last few which just go nuts packing everything in. Animation style is interesting, but works well with the content. Twists are decent, but kind of sell them selves out to early.

  • Has potential, but requires a better development
    The theme of the occult is very interesting, but for my taste, this anime tries to include so many occult topics that makes it look not so serious.Ghosts,time travel, aliens and others make the anime less serious, is like a soup where you can´t feel any ingredient. Now, that is a main point of disappointment, since it treats so many interesting and serious and suspense topics as comedy, so, ...

  • Almost perfect, I had SO MANY FEELS.
    I started watching this out of curiosity, I wasn't expecting to like it and if I did only tolerating it enough to watch it because I have nothing else to watch right now, but I LOVED it. I am usually able to predict something close to how things actually end but the last two or three episodes I kept saying "WTF," "No," and "are you kidding me," over and over again. There are some things I would ...

  • A Well Made, Solid Series
    This series grabs your attention quickly and rarely let's go. It's a good story, told at a great pace, and it wraps everything up nicely by the end. With action, mystery, sci-fi, comedy, romance, and slice of life elements, it'd be tough not to enjoy.

    Story - 8/10
    Animation - 6/10
    Soundtrack - 5/10
    Overall - Good Series, Worth Watching

  • A Great Story of Character Redemption, & An Ending That Stirs Debate
    I thoroughly enjoyed this anime. The main characters had deep backstories that were interesting and contributed to the story. I personally love this style of animation. The show is a unique blend of action and comedy.

    The last few episodes feel like they may have been rushed. Around episode ten it starts normal, then just goes full throttle to the conclusion. Just when you think you have it ...
