If I were to describe this anime in one sentence, it would be: "Pokemon with Battle Dolls!"

Story: 6/10
We follow little Mizaki, a little girl wanting to see her mother after years and years of being away from her. Upon arriving in the city where her aunt lives, she sees a jumbo vision screen that has two little battle dolls (known as Angles) fighting one on one. She is intrigued by them and decides to try it out for herself, unknown to Mizaki her mom is actually much closer than she thinks. This is the base of the storyline, along the way she meets new friends read more

A doll used in the Angelic Fights is usually treated by her (or rarely, his) owner (deus) as though it were a dear friend, with concerned cries going out when they are injured.

I'd have to say that it's a good thing I force myself to finish anime, even if I am clearly not enjoying it in the beginning. Personally, I felt the first 10-15 episodes were very hard to watch - mostly because the three recurring girls were the characters I found most annoying. And sure, I ended up sympathising with two of them, but that didn't make them any less annoying at the end. I greatly enjoyed the other characters, however. Perhaps the three girls are good enough characters that they evoke an emotion in me - annoyance? Maybe. Who knows. I also felt that they read more
