Not the best anime, but Hidan No Aria was to me an enjoyable one, and since it is highly criticized, I decided to write a review.

The background of the story is attractive, I mean, studying in order to be able to fight criminals sounds nice, and it leads to some nice action scenes. Although the plot isnt that convincing, it is not a boring one. The beginning of the scenario is a commonplace, it starts with a highschool student, at the beginning of yet another year. The highschool not being seen as a true highschool, it can help to forget the number of anime possibily read more

If they decide to make a 2º season (they should, because the 1º season has lots of material to make a 2º) I think it will have some development on the romance area.

But still, I shall say this anime was entertaining, was it worth watching? Yes, because 12 episodes isn't that much, and the anime has its original side. Famous people references, gun / swords fight, great art and motion.

But for me, a LovCom fan, I still enjoyed the anime, but was a bit sad at the ending, because the ending its like: "Wait for the 2º Season"

Hidan no Aria ...
Aria the Scarlett ammo ...

In my opinion this has been a very enjoyable anime.

The story revolves around our male protagonist Tohyama Kinji.
The events that happen are in a good and logical sequence, very similar to the light novel. Also in my opninion the story of Hidan no Aria (I like the name better in Japanese) is not just an ordinary story. Yes of course, it is about a dude attending a high school, but that's not what this anime is about. Especially when you have read the light novel you know this is true. Also for the people that have read the read more

I really am trying to not become one of those cynical anime watchers who think the best has already come and never will again, but you’re really trying my resolve this year Japan. Hidan no Aria was a show that for whatever reason I had a great deal of excitement and anticipation for. I was won over by the early pre-production artwork without knowing really anything at all about what it was going to be about or the source materials. When I learned the seiyuu cast and the plot synopsis I was pretty sure what I was going to be in store read more

Recommendations

They both have the "boy-meet-girl" trend. They both feature a tsudere, shorty, and powerful (in terms of battles) character voiced by Rie Kugimiya. Both produced by J.C. Staff.
The guy in both Anime is accused of being a pervert when he really isn't one or isn't intentionally trying to perv. As for the main female character, she easily becomes jealous, she has a temper and has issues of some kind.
Both female leads are tsunderes. The female and male leads in both of these anime have the same seiyuus. Basically, Hidan no Aria (Aria the Scarlet Ammo) is Toradora with guns.
Kinda similar in some ways:
includes some sort of relationship with boys and girls carrying out a gun in school grounds and fighting against one another for some certain reasons. It's comedy and enjoyable to watch! Great animations as well
Both have:

- Have a task of protecting the city or eliminating the threat.
- Fight with guns, katana, sniper and etc.
- Similarities character:

Tooyama Kinji = Satomi Rentarou
Kanzaki Aria = Aihara Enju
Hotogi Shirayuki = Tendou Kisara
Reki = Tina Sprout
Mine Riko = Shiba Miori

- Each anime have some great action and fight scene.
- Each both main character have a female partner loli pink hair ponytails. (Kinji x Aria, Rentarou x Enju)
The guys in the Anime happen to be a special person who is allowed to go to a special school. There are harems involved, plenty of action and crazy chaos.
