Quote:
The dark fantasy follows a high school sophomore named Akihito Kanbara. Although the boy appears human, he is half youmu and invulnerable to wounds because he can heal quickly. One day, Akihito meets freshman Mirai Kuriyama when it seems she is about to jump from the school rooftop. Mirai is isolated because of her ability to manipulate blood, which is unique even among members of the spirit world. Disturbing events begin to unfold after Akihito saves Mirai.

More KyoAni ! I always wanted to see more action animated by them since they did so good with the Chuuni series, that was enough for me to be interested . ( I mean, I even struggled through Free ! )

I had high hopes due the trailers and magic being involved, and while it's good it didn't quite turned out to be what I expected . . . I still enjoy it a lot, though . And I find the humor very entertaining, plus those fight sequences . . . Really, they're so good !

The characters are all interesting, in my opinion . I find Akihito likeable and Mirai surprised me ( although I'm biased since I love anything with glasses . . . Ok, I couldn't stand Meganebu, but I still love anything with glasses ) because I wasn't expecting her being more than a " moe klutz " . So, I'm glad I was so wrong regarding that ! ( Off-topic : HNNGH MIRAI, HNNNGH HIROMI )

The isn't exactly bad nor is stellar, it just . . . It felt kind of odd not feeling much these last few episodes . Maybe the problem is me, though .

Another pro is its ending song, too . Not a huge fan of the opening song, though :/

I really like it so far, the concept is good and the twist in the last episode was spectacular.

Woah, ep 11 was intense . Intense enough to actually make me feel stuff ! Really, the animation adds so much more to the experience . . . Looking forward to the next ep !

Spoilers;
so it ended and it was good.

They did leave a sort of 'hey lets milk this for a second season' vibe, but it must be done I guess.

KyoAni always leaves that sort of vibe just in case, but the vast majority of their shows don't make it that far.

You mean it was bad right? The world was enclosed in like a vacuum, hardly giving and exposition and details, many things remained unexplained. The worst was the literal 100% asspull ending, let's revive the person that should by all means be dead with no explanation at all!

I'm not bothered about it being cheesy or whatever just as long as they explained it, which they did not.

They didn't really explain anything in this one, it was kind of one of those titles where "this is gonna happen and you're just gonna have to accept it as is because I don't know what to tell you."

Yup, but I like the moe action . . . o:
Sadly not many pull out something good like Madoka or Shinsekai Yori

Still quite enjoyable ! Liked Mirai quite a lot, but yeah . . . They didn't explain much at all .

No, seriously, this is probably the worst Kyoani has done by far in a long while. They didn't even do well appealing to one demographic. The moeblob crowd only got a few episodes worth of material. The action crowd got terribly choreographed fights that lacked impact because power scopes and abilities are hardly explained (along with asspull teleportation and the like). The story crowd, well, we already covered that. Literally the only thing it has going for it is being technically prettier than most other animoo.

Even then there are as pretty or prettier ones that do better in everything else than this. Shit, Nichijou was better animated, and that was like 2 years ago.

At least their last few shows knew who they were targeting, and how to please them.

I see the high school setting and get instantly turned off by it.

That overused setting usually suffers the same boring elements of content that can often make you want to chew through a board of wood.

Not knowing who it's targeting makes it even worse.

That bit about Izumi having a younmu inside her, was so random and last minute.

I don't really give a shit who they were trying to appeal to , to be honest with you . I actually enjoyed this quite a bit more than Chuuni o3o

Also, I really liked Mirai's fightstyle, even if I never understood how she could float and fly away out of the blue between moves .

Now to wait for Tamako's movie ~ also my fav moment of the series . . .
