    The 1 star reviews are for region restrictions
    This review is written having seen ep 1, this is going to be such a good title. Dark, cute, and real. Give it a shot, the actual episode itself has a five star rating at 900 votes.

    I understand being upset and wanting CR to see your circumstances but those negative reviews are placed over people's work. This is someone's creation and those reviews are negatively impacting it without having seen ...

    It's dark here, anyone got a flashlight?
    Now I usually don't write reviews, but after all the one-star reviews complaining about region restrictions, I felt it was my duty to set this straight.

    With that out of the way, on to the show:
    If I had a scale range from cute to terrifying, this show would cover the whole thing. I felt like I was on a rollercoaster for my emotions.
    At the beginning all I could think was "why are their ...

    They've done it. So far so good!
    This is a series that I have been reading since it first showed up as on Shonen Jump. It immediately stood out to me as a misfit for the magazine. It feels much more like a Seinen(targeted at young adults) and thats a good thing! I worried that the adaptation wouldn't be able to capture the tense and gritty atmosphere but they nailed it!. The art style and the delivery are actually a step above ...

    Holy Crap, Now That's What I Call Dark!
    How do I even begin with this. It has a wholesome vibe at first, although you catch on quickly that the setting isn't what it seems to be, even before all the dark plot points begin happening, and this is all in one episode. It definitely made me widen my eyes when it started getting serious. If you have more of a weak stomach then don't watch this, although if you can handle dark and slight edge, ...

    No children were harmed in the making of this anime.
    I began watching this with great expectations that were quickly surpassed by an incredible adaptation that combines great voice acting, suspense, top-notch animation and certain psychological thriller elements to tell its amazing story. This is surely one of the best in the season and for clarification, no real children were harmed or exploited in this anime. If you've made it to the end of this ...

    Please Ignore The One Star Reviews.
    I don't know anything about the manga at all but I can say without a doubt that this anime somehow got me hooked on episode 1. You should really give this a try, the one-star reviews are only dumbass people complaining about it not being available in their region.

    Fantastic, Complex, Grim and Cerebral-stimulating
    NO SPOILERS:
    This anime reminds me of the intellectual struggle between Light and L from Deathnote – a covert and ever present battle of logic, strategy, creativity, threat calculations and intelligence analysis between the threat(s) and our little baby geniuses. Furthermore this show has an amazing concept/story, is beautifully animated and carefully directed with some great ...

    INCREDIBLE ADAPTATION!!
    Flawless episode, the animation is spot on, OST is nothing short of great & adaptation from the manga is 100% where it needs to be.
    It doesn't fail to build momentum to "that" moment which sets the whole story in motion. One thing about this show that is so amazing already is that it's hooking people already on episode 1, something few shows manage to do nowadays.

    When everything you knew is a lie...
    The first episode clearly defines the characters for you, and gives you a glimpse into their world. A world which is relatively peaceful and happy, but something seems a little off. Near the end of the first episode, you learn
    ...

    Just your average review man
    Amazing character development and world building. The show also has really nice animation. You can see that each character has their own kryptonite, which in my opinion every good character needs to be ...
