Barsburg Empire's Military Academy is known for training elites who bring victory to the empire. Students of the academy freely utilize an ability called "Zaiphon" to fight, while the types of Zaiphon usable depends on the nature of the soldier.

Teito Klein, a student at the academy, is one of the most promising soldiers produced. Although ridiculed by everyone for being a sklave (German for slave) with no memories of his past, he is befriended by a fellow student called Mikage. While preparing for the final exam, Teito uncovers a dark secret related to his past. When an attempt to assassinate Ayanami, a high-ranking official who killed his father, fails, Teito is locked away awaiting punishment.

Only wanting the best for Teito, Mikage helps him escape. Teito ends up at the 7th District Church where he is taken in by the bishops. It is here that Teito attempts to evade the grasp of Ayanami and the Military, so he can rediscover his memories and learn why he is the person that can change the fate of the world.

(A.N. Reviews are my personal opinions, these aren't coming from an objective perspective where I try to look at the anime critically. I just want to jot down my thoughts on somewhere where I physically can't lose it)

Okay, let me start by saying, this will be the most biased review on my page. Unless I write a review for SAO, which I'm not a huge fan of. But anyway, 09-Ghost is one of my favorite animes - not that I let people know, though. I immediately fell in love with all the characters, yes, even the antagonists, and the story line was one I had read more

It's been a long six months, and I must say that this anime was one of the shows I most looked forward to every week through spring and summer. I have a lot of good things to say about this anime so lets get started!

STORY 7/10- The best way to define the story is "not bad". It's a fairly interesting story about friendship and vengeance, and had it's fair share of comedy and touchy moments which are the kind of things I personally like in an anime. Even though I watched the show from the first day of broadcast (which I mentioned read more

Story: 5

Church Daily Life really says it all. I’ve watched 9 episodes of this show and for all but about half of the first one Teito has been moping around in a church. There is a pretty obvious looking back-story lurking in the background but progress is extremely slow and the vast majority of time is spent on the aforementioned moping around part. The story also suffers a lot from the ineffective relationship between Teito and Mikage. Clearly 07-Ghost meant Mikage to be a great influence on Teito and shape him in to the force he will likely eventually be in the story, but ineffective read more

It was the spring of 2009, and as I browsed through the upcoming anime, I stumbled across a show entitled "07-Ghost" which I thought then it had great promise, how wrong I was. For me, 07-Ghost is important for being the one who gave a start to other animes like it. You may ask, like what? First of all, the setting of the story in a "all boys church" sends shounen-ai alerts from a mile away. However,the staff being too afraid that straight male audience won't find it "appealing" covered the story with a pathetic "it is but a wonderful friendship between boys". Second read more

Anime: Hakkenden: Touhou Hakken Ibun
I agree that both are VERY similar, considering both the premise, tragic pasts, church plays an important role, the characters' mission, the slash fanservice, the character's personalities and everything. I was always reminded of 07-Ghost while watching Hakkenden even though it's been years.

Both starts with a similar futuristic-fantasy setting with a military academy training students with special combat abilities.

Anime: Karneval (TV)
While both series are focused on different premises, they share the theme of fantasy and abnormality that are not often seen in the real world.

Both series' main male protagonist also have somewhat similar personality although Nai in Karneval tends to be more shy. Nonetheless they often tries to put others before themselves.

Both series involves different organizations with objectives.

They also have comedy, drama, action, and emotional moments in between some of the episodes.
