Made it through the second episode and couldn't find the will to keep going. Kind of sad it didn't improve, but I didn't exactly expect it to.

The series was terrible. But there were exactly 5 minutes that made the ride worthwhile. I mean, that ending and the bit in the middle. Seriously, this series is the most glorious troll I've seen since episode 1 of Ga Rei Zero.

Yes, this was indeed terrible. If I had to pick a part of the series I liked it would be when the spoiler[bath house was attacked by terrorists]. That is because it was a total troll on just how bad it is, and just had fun with it. There was like thirty seconds of spoiler[just watching a guy do sit-ups].

And what it did to set up for more, I am not sure if I could do that, although like a guy spoiler[doing sit ups for some reason], could I look away?

Seiji Kishi should not be given any more projects. He's a terrible director. Simple as that.

Oh man, I knew this series was awful. I dropped it from the first episode alone because of how laughably stupid and convenient the mystery was and the uninspired aping of GetBackers and Darker than Black coupled with the try hard flamboyant style. Seems I made the right call.

I honestly haven't seen a protagonist I've disliked more than Nice... There's Makoto sure, but thankfully I've never watched School Days. When a spoiler[Purple Hulk showed up and Nice was being a jerkwad] I just decided to drop it.

I didn't watch this series. Don't plan to.

But the main characters name is Nice? NICE?

You serious?

A shame. I liked this series and never saw it as mystery but instead action and comedy

Some characters acknowledge he has a weird name. It is believed Facultas erased his real name during his training.

Minimum Holders, Nice and Moral.

This is one thing I'd like anime series (and videogames too) to stop: silly naming. This has to be among the worst offenders. Confused

I thought this was a great series. It had a little bit of everything, comedy, mystery, action and supernatural. I'm glad that its getting a second series. This show is one of those underrated shows that you find wandering about most of the time.

The director who directed this was also the one who directed Tokyo Majin. True, a few didn't like that series here but its definitely broadly popular in Japan. I think thos series and this director did a great job. This show had a unique feel to it and a great sense of mystery behind it.

Another example of how comparing scores on ANN can be quite funny. When compared to say, Nobunagun, for example.

I completely disagree. I really enjoyed Hamatora, and I purchased the first Blu-ray. I will of course continue to purchase the rest. The anime has a really colorful cast and a fun world.

I dropped this anime at episode 4. It was simply too boring for me. Literally nothing about it, except for the colorful art, got me interested in it whatsoever. It's just plain boring.

The surprise ending's promise of a sequel isn't a promise really. It's a threat.


This sums up my feelings about this show fairly accurately.
