Ratings & Reviews
this anime is very good from start to finish 5 stars worth buying
Starts great and then falls apart
I watched this show as it was being simulcasted by FUNimation, so I can't comment on the dub of the series. The Japanese cast was good, it didn't help that Rie Kugimiya was Aria since I can't stand to listen any characters that she voices.
The series started really nice for me, but midway through it seemed like it just had so many ideas it wanted to put in the series that it would just throw stuff at you and you'd have to deal with it on the fly while new plot points are added. There were some plot points that got thrown in where I literally thought the person in charge of the script went 'This would be cool to have here' and just threw it in. In the end, the series just diverged into such a mess of a plot for me that I didn't like it.
Admittedly I have not read the light novels for the show, so I don't know if all that happened is exactly like what's in the novels. I just know that this was a one time watch for me that I had to force myself to finish and not something I'll keep on my shelves.
Great Action Series
I personally enjoyed this series, couldn't take my eyes off it the dub is pretty good as well and the animation was beautiful
