Not a very popular show and deserves more credit.
In my opinion the show would look even better on Bluray but the price takes a sudden spike, considering that even this regular version gets you by.
People have mentioned that this series seems to progress into boss battles, this is true, and a lot of the later battles are fought by previously unknown characters who I just couldn't care about.
The English dub isn't amazing, and Raki is the most annoying character in the history of television...seriously!..maybe switch to the Japanese track.
Overall it's worth watching. The animation is beautiful and though the story has a mixed pace, it' still better than a lot of anime.
As a product, this is just an inch thick plastic case with the two double sided hinged holders inside. It's held together well so far but it does feel a little flimsy.
Watched it nearly in a row. Universe and chara design are very interesting. The serie starts fair and the plot evolves cleverly.
Graphic and animation are very good, as well as music. Aside from very little drops of it, most of the characters and their behavior are not clichés at all, which is refreshing.
Mood is oppressing and filled with uneasyness yet not too much overdone in this direction anyway.
Of course, lot of depicted violence, blood and such, so not advised for all audience, but it's a clearly solid anime serie with its own soul and personnality.
If you like epic stories with good swordfights and fantasy, this one will fill your needs.
I love the soundtrack, the design and the palette that is used to describe certain scenes.
I don't necessarily agree with what some people say about character development, as I believe each character had it's own way of developing. I do believe that Raki was a strange kind of kid and although his story reminisces in some periods of the story with someone's story, he does get to be a little bit annoying. But every other character develops very nicely. I believe that even characters you don't see often, develop their stories and personalities in their own little way, by saying one line, meaningful enough for you not to need anything else.
It does have its fair amount of blood and gore and if you're not into that, then you will not like this series, but I believe that if you tend to like action stories and moreover action stories with girls, then this is definitely for you.
