Too many beautiful words too little characters developments, that's the best and worst things for this anime.

The anime is amazing and it have a great and fun story,I enjoyed it a lot.
And what makes the anime more awesome is the characters, the characters personalities are outstanding and unique, they also have unique and humorous reaction to things, their reactions always surprise me in a good way.

The plot goes smoothly in the anime, not fast but not too slow. However, i did not notice any characters developments in the anime except for only one character and in the last two episodes only, read more

Overall I think this anime deserves an 8.5 on my scale, but unfortunately there isn't that option.

Story: The story itself is fairly basic, but has some interesting back story thrown in every once in a while. However, the anime does seem rushed. I think a lot of people did not give this show a chance because the beginning is so chaotic. The first episode does not feel like an introduction at all, in fact you are pretty much thrown into the story.

Art: I really enjoyed the animation. It seemed to be well done (it better for being 10 episodes). Maybe, it is the read more

Hatenkou Yuugi is a 10-episode anime based on the ongoing manga with the same name. It aired between the 4th of January and the 7th of march, 2008.

The genres include: Comedy, Adventure, Drama.

Hatenkou Yuugi begins pretty randomly, but with a lot of promise. The young woman Rahzel is thrown out of her home by her dad, because he wants her to travel and see the world. She quickly finds two traveling companions, Alzeid and Baroqueheat, and together travel from place to place, helping out people with different problems. Sounds good? Sure does, but during episodes you sometimes experience these random comedy moments that destroy the read more

This is the first anime I've ever seen that I would call random. I think the word random is overused when describing many shows but this show is random - random in a funny and fun way, but random none the less. Yes, I know the reading the manga would probably make it less random but that itsn't the point.

What the MAL description fails to convey is that the show is really just ten episodes of following a trio of dysfunctional people on a journey. It definitely suffers from a lack of plot, but it redeems itself because dysfunctional people on a read more

Anime: Hakushaku to Yousei
A beautiful girl with magical powers accompanies a mysterious bishounen with a mysterious past and a dark agenda on a journey. Compared to the girl in Hatenkou Yuugi, Hakushaku's girl is a little more timid and her powers are more passive than active (she can communicate with fairies, but she can't cast spells--at least, not as of the first episode). Also, whereas in Hatenkou Yuugi, the girl is genuinely a companion for her two bishounen friends, in Hakushaku she is more a servant of the duke, and at his mercy.

It's kind of similar in the concept of two guys traveling with a girl. Although both animes are quite different, where in Hatenkou Yuugi, in my opinion, there is much more comedy and romance, I think you might like this anime a lot.

The story lines deal with relatively the same time period or time period styles. It also has a girl who tries to solve some of the supernatural mysteries that occur around her.

Anime: Vampire Knight
Mainly I think the producers had the same target audience for these 2 shows - probably 14 year old girls- and are in the same general genre. Having said that they're are pretty enjoyable with pseudo-dark plots and complicated relationships.

Anime: Kuroshitsuji
The art quality and the air of mystery are very similar in both. Both have humor and a dark past.

Anime: Yakitate!! Japan
Both series revolve around people who were formerly clowns. In Hatenkou Yuugi, the character is Baroqueheat. Likewise, Pierrot is the character in Yakitate Japan.
