Oh man... this had one of the biggest train wrecks of an anime adatations in years. I could almost follow what was happening at first but then it suddenly went into turbo and left everyone in the dust. They were self-aware at the end and just said "fudge it" just do whatever. In a way it was amusing. Great fights for the frst 3 episodes though.

Same. This manga had so muvh potential. But then I saw the Anime and it made me cringe. The animation was so meh and it was like no one tried to put effort into it. I need to catch up on the volumes though.

What really annoyed me was spoiler[Toko's death (at least in the anime, don't know if the manga handled it differently). Not simply that she died, but that it happened in such a pointless manner. Like really, charging straight into the middle of a battle for no reason? Why'd they even take her along in the first place? It felt like they killed her for pointless shock value, but it was so stupid that I didn't even care, or at least not about the character.]

Can't say much about the manga, but the anime was something else, an out of this world experience.

Well seeing as how plenty of other characters are still doing, I would say that no one paid attention to that lesson all too much.

Hear! Hear! I am not against the fact, but it was so pointless, felt like a move to make into the headlines. The only thing it managed is that I will not read a manga of said author, he can get a job as a salaryman for all I care.

I stop because of the horrid scene, I wanted growth but it was totally pointless, I don't know how bad the manga got afterwards. All I know was after that scene in the manga I was out.
