As a harem anime lover I expected a twist here, besides the main being used brutally.. There seems to be some history between her father and the vampire family which has me intrigued more then the rest of the show.. I'm still hoping for one of the brothers to show a shred of decency, but it seems unlikely.. I gave the story a 4 because there are some intriguing factors, but it feels like there just gonna beat up on the main.
This is always a high factor for many shows, the characters are unique and designed well. Although so far, the setting is normally in the house or school.. Since there are only two locations; the Art feels recycled, thus why I give it a rating of 7.
Personally, I can't say I'm fond of the OP or ED; but they fit the show well. I gave it a 6 here because most of the sound design fits the show, but really isn't memorable..
Even though the development of the characters is quite low, they are pretty quick to establish the characters personalities, Mannerisms, etc. They all just seem mean in general, but with some of the development that is there you see that some of the brothers if not just one, weren't always that way..
To be honest, I haven't really enjoyed watching this whatsoever. I'm not to keen on abusing or using women, so watching this kinda doesn't go down well.. I don't even know if I will finish the series.. gave it a 3 here ..
Considering above, this teeters between a 5-6 overall.. I went with the 5 because the numbers were closer.. Personally, I wouldn't recommend this show at all, but a lot could change from episode 6 to 12.. If your chill with abusive scenes, I say give it a go.. I don't know yet if I'll keep watching, just felt it needed a fair review. read more

This is my second review ever! I believe a short and sweet approach is what people look for.. If you want to know what it's about read the summery above. I go in the order of Story,Art, Sound, Character, Enjoyment, and Overall.. I am here to review not give you meaningless bs.
The story can be compared to Code Geass, I can see why most come to the conclusion. but this series is completely different and all original. my philosophy for anime is watch the first 5 episodes and if your not clamoring for more then you should watch it with spare time or not watch it at all.. this series is unique and deserves the 8 I gave it.
The art is stunning, absolutely perfect for the content of the series. pretty much sums it up.
The season one opening was amazing and very catchy (plz know I consider 11-12 episodes as one season). The ending was great as well. the sound design for the show was well thought out for the genre it is portraying. both season one and two endings had me humming the tunes.. overall worth the 10.
The character design in this show is nothing short of brilliant. the main character is regarded as weak in the beginning and a lot of people showed hatred to this aspect. I was surprised, that people didn't realize that as the show progressed you get to see him grow as a man in such a short time span, and also how he came to be weak in the first place. You also get too see great depth in the supporting characters and how some of them change as events happen in the series.. this deserves nothing less then a 9.
I enjoyed GC greatly due to it's originality.. and that is something that is pretty rare these days.. I recommend watching this, and maybe giving it at least till the 5th episode before you decide if you hate it, etc. I promise you the story develops at a decent pace and ends well.
In the end, I gave this series an overall score of ten since I can't put a 9.6-9.8.. I hope those hanging on the fence will take my review to heart, I know the reviews for this are quite bad, but it is always better to try watching it for yourself.. I have done my job if I get at least one person to give the show a chance.. I enjoyed it and I hope you will as well. read more

Well, this will be my first ever review for a series.. reasons for me actually taking the time to write one, is because I believe this is a very underrated series as it's part of the Gundam franchise.. I'll break it down.
The story progress was brilliance at it's best. The show progresses throughout 100 years, and moves through three generations.. I felt this was a very interesting concept that could be explored in other Gundam series in the future. There was a lot of accusations towards this series about being a children's version of a Gundam series.. This is inaccurate, as throughout the entire series it is very serious in the way it approaches the dialogue and story..
Why? because it was different then what I normally see and now in the end, it's unique.. People complain that the art is childish. the Gundam wasn't designed well,etc.. if you pay attention it develops into a very well designed Gundam; following the series as both the story and the characters evolve.
The sound design is amazing, but out of the OP or ED I have grown increasingly fond of 'My World' by SPYAIR.. the song has such a great meaning behind it, which is a perfect fit for the arc, and after this series I have become a great fan of their music and I recommend anyone who enjoys the ED to check out the rest of their music line up.
I greatly enjoy this series, because I've grown to love each of the characters.. As you move through each arc you clamor to find out what happens to each of the side characters, the previous main characters, etc.. overall the show just engulfs you until the very end.. It proves that if you stick with it, it can stand with even the best of the franchise.
This series has been a complete joy to watch and I wish it would of went farther into the storyline, definitely worth the watch.. if your hanging on the fence to watch or not watch, this is no SD Gundam.. and for that I am thankful.. To me this ranks with Gundam Wing and Gundam 00 , which are among my favorite series.. Go watch this already.. quoted from a comment on GA.com episode 20.. "People hated AGE, but it just keeps getting better and better.." read more
