It was very addicting to watch, episodes fly one after the other and the plot between 6 or 7 characters inter-web is amazing. At first seeing all these relationship unfold and how people in the show can be overwhelming at first, but in the end of the first season everything is justified by the truth and what is going on. The plot is easy to comprehend and fun to watch and see the relationships come together.
Enticing, vivid, abstract. The color and color transition in this show is nothing more extraordinary. It caught my attention right away, the color scheme is beautiful and smartly done. The animation and artwork in this series is done perfectly. It really reminds me of the play hamlet that was done in present day New York filmed in the early 2000's. No not the plot and story but how it is filmed, the angles, the lighting, and transitions are very similar. It is a very beautiful anime.
I rated the sound the least, it didn't stand out to my senses like the other did but it wasn't horrible at all. There are times in the series that it really perfects it, but other times it seems cheesy to me more cliche.
The Bond between the characters is exquisit. There are three main stories or potential relationships and the story and plot is wonderful. It will make you heart ache at times hearing the true story behind some of the female leads. There is a depression theme behind most of the female leads which is quite irritating but other than that it a perfect anime.
The one thing that bothers me that i don't give it a overall score of 10 is because of the over the trouble emotional struggles and how they cope with it. To be i'm just bewildered by it and its a knife in my back that keeps me from giving it a 10. But wow, this is really a amazing and beautiful anime all in all. This is really a must watch on any anime loving's list!
Thank you for reading :D

If you all have seen the borrowers when you were younger like I have this is falling the same aspect, little people living their own lives trying to stay away from people and animals and borrowing food from humans that they will not notice has gone missing.
The Story is outstanding. The difficulties the borrows have with the humans, the animals and the conflict that expands between the humans and the borrowers is very emotional. The story in itself will keep you seated and wanting to finish watching.
Now let me discuss to you the art which to me is award winning. The graphic design and layout is award winning. Comparing the layout with the borrowers is amazing to see the world through their eyes. This movie is very colorful and magical in a sense.
Overall arrietty is enjoyable, lovable and sweet all in all. I'm sure all will fall in love with this colorful and fun animated movie. read more

The story itself was nothing more than epic. It showed a very good ladder of the disciple growing stronger and learning from his losses. It didn't sidestep at all from the main story and it made it easy to understand what was going on in the story! Overall you will enjoy the story and it will keep you wanting to watch more like it did for me....10....
The art was fairly good, it kept my senses liking what it saw and it was well drawn. I did see an improvement of art work during the ending of the series which was neat to see an improvement!.....9......
The music used in the series were great. I loved listening to action scenes and emotional ones and hearing the music change with it!......10....
The character background, there influence and how they changed throughout the anime is very special. You'll see characters influence one another and see them just change 180 from their previous thoughts and ideals which is very touching. The characters grow a strong relationship with one another and you realize watching that friendship always withstands everything and you can get pure energy from the power of your friends. Of course there are a couple love triangles in the series which is always fun to watch and you see characters true emotions coming out end the end of the series which is a shame because i like to see the series take a follow up on their emotions and the outcome. I hope they play more with that in the manga which I haven't read which is the next step for me. score........10.....
Overall this anime was a very enjoyable series, I actually learned a lot about the different types of martial arts and their style which was neat because I have no knowing of any martial arts. I don't know how much is true about what they do and practice but it is very entertaining and if its factual, then its very informational. Overall its is a very fun, enjoyable, action pack and comical series which I believe all will enjoy and love watching. overall scoring is a epic 10! read more

Well the story was very solid and experienced conflict and twists wisely in the anime which makes it a great story...9...
The art was very impressive, nothing spectacular but solid. will keep you entertained and won't leave your eyes weary. I warn if you don't like blood and gore don't watch this, it has alot of blood and gory scenes and right off the back, the first 5 min is nothing but fights and blood so be weary of it. I think it is needed and makes it more realistic....8..
The sound is one of its kind, I love the sound track and the tracks they use are GREAT. It won't leave you disappointied when watching!...10..
The character and character relationships are rich, a bit confusing and funny how people get so attached and jealous, but all is explained in flash backs how a strong bond is there. There is alot of suppressing memory loss where it comes in the anime little by little...10...
This is a very enjoyable anime, rich in context, visual aid and character bonds. I liked it alot and didn't leave me looking for anything that it didn't have....10..
Overall the score it rightfully earned in my books is a 9, it showed great relationship between the characters, live action, personal and emotional conflict, and mystery. This is a anime that everyone should have on your list to watch if you haven't seen! read more

The story is a descent one with a merchant who is mixed up with a so called god, holo who tries to get her to her home town in the north and during the journey trades and profits from it. It is interesting to see how the market was used back in the "good ol days" :p
The art is fairly good. Nothing outstanding but visually attrative to my senses :)
The sounds were amazing, what I would think if I were in the mid-evil day or renaissance times, with harps, luts, violins, flutes and bards singing. I enjoyed the music and that in itself is a masterpiece to the show!
The Characters were funny and entertaining. The conflicts and problems that the main characters had were fun to watch and you got to see the two main characters grow a bond that hopefully you'll see in the next series grow into something special. It will be nice to see some romance and happiness turn out from it!
The enjoyment factor was great, very comical and exciting seeing how the supply and demand were used!
Overall this is a fun and entertaining, not to mentioned and educational series seeing how the supply and demand was used. I enjoyed it and hope everyone feels the same after seeing it for themselves :) read more

I really enjoyed this anime series so much that I plan to watch it again sometime next month. I haven't ever stumbled onto a jem like this series before! This is so much like mission impossible or the bourne supremacy series that I fell in love with it in a flash.
The story behind this anime is solid. Its nothing to out of the way to understand and nothing so amazing you just realize from the end that its all over. Its a good train, kill, be killed, emotional reck and take it to the man kind of story. I found it interesting and very appealing to my liking :) I scored an 8.
The art was a very tasteful and experiencing thing. In this anime I notced myself watching their faces more because they had emotion on their face most of the time and the shading was very realistic during the night and day! Its a very graphically inclined series with I enjoyed as well, 9/10.
Okay for the music to me it was just as how when you watch James bond it has there own music to it. Well for Phantom its does just the same! The music was SO great! It showed some ghosty/phantom presence when played and it was very haunting which is why I loved it so much! a perfect score...10
The character relationship to the mafia, businesses and there masters are deep and very disturbing how something people can be so brainwashed to do such things. They have a very deep passion when it comes to freedom and wanting to live life. I love the character development in this series! perfect score 10
The enjoyment factor was certainly there! Who doesn't like to see wold class assasains killing and making a uproar! ha yeah this was a very fun series to watch. I rated it a 9
Overall this series Phantom is the best assassin anime out there. The mixture of an assassin who is a ghost when fighting is just so amazing. There is even a deeper meaning to why it is to be a phantom. I won't spoil any spoilers but please watch because this series is really a must see if you enjoy action pack government consparisy movies ! read more

Baccana is a masterpiece going through times in the rowring 30's with swinging jazz, murderers roaming, high jacking and back flashes going through times in the 1700's. What I've really liked about this anime were the music and the rude but tasteful sound of the 30's were everyone were part of a gang and they were afraid to show how commited they were to them!
The story was a 10, It showed a good transition through time and had a wonderful story telling tone to it!
The art was livid and colorful! It kept my mind active with brightly lit tones and darkness that plays with the emotion! It really is a masterpiece in its own looking at the art.
The sound was wonderful, I personally love jazz and to see an anime in this era is a great treat! They used the 30's big band sound to this anime and it was a hit out of the park! Music is wonderful.
The Characters in this anime all fit along with the story. There weren't any unneeded characters and everyone had a story. You will learn about the gangs in this show and how they fit along with the show.
Overall this is honestly a very enjoyable show and I recommend this to all who love a show that wont shy away from murder, guts, comradeship, and blood conflict between people and gangs! This is a very enjoyable and likable show.
The re-watch value is HIGH :) read more

okay talking about the my scoring...
The story was amazing, I didn't think there was any unnecessary episodes that seemed like a filler you would see in many anime series. The story personally took me a while to understand what is going on in this "world" but once I understood what was happening I fell in love with how the story took off :) For me since now I understand what is going on, a second time watching it will probably be more enjoyable than the first!
The art really reminded me of the style of Howl's moving castle. This is probably why I thought it seemed so similar. Well I loved the animation, it was well done and the action sequences seemed to flow well! wonderful work!
Wow the sound was great, I loved the Intro and ending songs on each episode. But looking back on the show, the music or sound during the anime didn't stand out. Its more of a I didn't notice any crummy sounds, or any amazing sounds so it must of been good. I think I might of been so worked up to the story that everything else seemed short to it. But I did notice a great usage in sound during climatic moment and emotional heartfelt times :)
Characters were well developed, funny and interesting. In this world of fantasy and magic I would say each character fills the parts and has a deep relationship with others. You notice tension right off the back with certain characters that make you want to watch more to see what will happen. They did a great job with the characters.
The Enjoyment factor was up there! I enjoyed the heartfelt moments, the comical parts, the sorrow and dreadful moments of the show. This show had all emotions of the pyramid and it used it well. It kept me uneasy for what was going to happen next and kept me more than entertained!
Overall this is a very solid anime! The Story were well above par, they had catching graphics that reminded me of Howl's moving castle. Sound were well in certain parts of the story. Characters were very heartfelt and the story as a whole was great! I see myself watching this series again and probably getting more out of it the second time around!
All I can say is Enjoy :D

The story was very solid, it did its part for wanting me to see what happens from episode to episode.
Art was great! Their lighting and graphics were great! One of the better graphiclly talented anime's I have seen!
Sound was cute and to the show.
Characters were well bonded, kinda felt a love triangle going on which was nice and wanted me to see something coming out of it. The characters were funny and enjoyable, each member of the team had a story and made me care for them in a special way!
The Enjoyment was great, It was funny, action packed, had its time of romance and heart felt moments.
Overall this is a very solid and lovable show! I am glad that I started to enjoy it more. I was surprised that this show touched me to a level that I started to cry. Overall I really enjoyed watching this anime and honestly would watch it again :D read more

The music, the character, the life drama, the pain that's over came is just to good.
You will find your self crying, Smiling, and Laughing.
Like I said in clannad, the music is an important factor in this story. It plays with your emotion and when you start to hear a song you eyes start to tear up because you know something very serious is going to happen and you just hope for the best even though it may be something very hard.
This Story is a very serious story with alot of struggles and love. I find myself thinking about it when I'm at work and how they overcame problems and how they always looked for the best even if it took awhile to find out where happiness was. I recommend this series to all my friends and I will hold this story close to my heart for it has changed me for the better.
I Love this story. It really is a Masterpiece :D Very much!! read more
