Hamatora is an anime that showed plenty of promise at first. It could have been excellent if not for one major setback: most of the anime is filler. The story is actually great when it gets down to it, but having one of the most thrilling scenes of any show this season followed up by a beach episode before returning to the actual plot just destroys the mood and momentum this show could have built up much more. That's not the only problem, but it certainly is the biggest and most noticeable one.

Hamatora is an anime with a similar style to things like Persona 4 read more

The progression of my reaction to Hamatora can be summed up as the following:

"Oh this is interesting..ok..ok?...wait, WHATTT?!?!

Hamatora is a mystery/supernatural based anime with some comedy mixed in. Sounds somewhat generic but what sets it apart are the unexpected twists, the small gaps within the story in this series, and the last episode.

The artwork and music are both not outstanding in particular. Enjoyable but nothing that screams "NOTICE ME, I WANT YOUR LOVE." There isn't much character development, however, that's not to say that there aren't interesting characters...I can think of at least 4 characters whose character and read more

People with special abilities and groups performing missions. Not to mention all around action. Darker than Black is of course edgier and well, darker [no pun intended] but they have the same feel and pacing.
Super powers. Mystery. Witty. Each anime has these elements in spades. Intensity seems to be the main element though. I couldn't help but notice the similarity after the first two episodes. The darkened theme running through the background plot sets up the mood for future events and the protagonists both have sort of that "in your face" approach. If you've seen one, I definitely recommend the other if only for a comparison of the two.

Opening Theme

"FLAT" by livetune adding Yuuki Ozaki (from Galileo Galilei)

Ending Theme

"Hikari" by Wataru Hatano
