First of all, don't watch this series backwards. Just don't do it. People will tell you to do it, but don't listen to them. Just like the movie Memento, this anime is meant to be watched in reverse chronological order.

The biggest reason you shouldn't watch it backwards is because episode 25 does not follow the reverse chronology time order so it will ruin the rest of the series for you. The later episodes, 19-26, are generally better than the earlier ones so if you watch it backwards, the series loses steam as it goes on.

This anime has gone through some rough criticism for it's strange content and backwards airing. But it's those things that make this an under-appreciated, under-rated masterpiece.

The art and general quality of this series is generally pretty nice. The opening is nice and mysterious with a nice song by Momoka's seiyuu that is very traditional sounding. The end animation isn't anything impressive but the song is nice and soothing, very lullaby-ish.

The characters are interesting and are put into unique situations (including staying at a haunted inn, yaoi Dojinshi, social abuse/exclusion and a yuri love triangle). Character's importance and attitude is confusing at first if you watch read more

I was really drawn in by the art and the music/sound of this anime; from episode 1 to episode 3 is as far as I could take though. I am usually patient, but from any given moment it would jump from one character to another and one scene to a different one. The plot and the story have got to be the issue and I refuse to watch this backwards. It really is unfortunate because it had a lot of potential, but the "less is more" quote is what applies best to this, in that the artist(s) should have considered using less. Even if this read more

To be fair, the art and sound are reasonable. However. those are the only redeeming qualities to this anime.

Before you write this off as a flame because I'm the type who doesn't like complicated stories, I'd like to dispel that idea. I like interesting plots. This anime just didn't have one. I saw someone else compare this anime to the likes of Memento, one of my favorite movies of all time, and that just made me cringe. I feel sorry for Memento.

First of all, even despite the fact that this is a fantasy world (which means I pretty read more

Recommendations

both are based on H-games by Carnelian and have yuri in them
Both are similar in terms of connection about curses , reincarnation and romance .
Attention this recommendation might contain spoilers.

Both have:
- A tragic past event.
- Blue haired hero was raised as a girl wearing long hair and yukata.
- Hero possesses inside him a great power in the form of a sword (Stone Sword/Blade of life).
- TG is more romance and Hakkenden is more "friendship".
- Beautiful animation & supernatural events/beings.
Fantastic anime,only a bit completion hopeless
Both have Great art, fantasy, comedy and drama. Both involve gods, a possessed girl/woman, a present that is affected by events of the past in a place where everyone is connected somehow, incest, a "punishment"/curse, Love, random events and a hugely confusing plot.
Both anime's are focused around spirits, magic and the old japan. and both have the side elements of humor, ecchi and romance. they both have the same atmosphere. and where both drawn bij amazing artists.
