First of all, if you ever picked this series because read somewhere that it was yuri in it, they deceive you (me too btw). There is a very, but a veeery light subtext, almost inexistant.
Second: this show has panty-shots everywhere, every and meaningless time. If you can´t handle useless fanservice run away from this show.
Story: It´s a good story btw. Sadly it has no time to grow deeper between the panty shots overdose. A secret agent has the mission to recover robots (Humaritts) which are putting the world in dangerous, but her partner is a humaritt herself, ready to help her. It´s a world where clothes are lacking, so all the woman use mini skirts, even to fight and jump. For a few minutes, you´ll believe that the story can be serious and it will talk about how human a robot can be, but it will be just for a few minutes, a panty will cross the screen to remember exactly what you are watching.
Art: Yeah, it has a good animation. And the it uses the most unusual angles so you can see the most number of pantys in the same scene. It infects your mind so badly that in some parts you´ll wait for a panty shot and nothing happens, so you´ll ask why not since it was a very convenient scene, like girls jumping with parachutes.
Sound: The sound was decent, nice musics that plays in the right time.
Character: The main one is fine, but the rest is too plain. There isn´t a bad guy that makes you worry, they have dumb plans and dumb minds and nothing goes anywhere. And it has women everywhere, all organizations, rebel groups and tripulations just contract women, why? Because you can see more skirts (or not see, because they are way too short).
Enjoyment: I give this a six, fair enough since the story has a good potential, but whenever I see a panty that damn word cross my mind and pisses me off.
But if you can handle pantyshots (or even if you liked it) this show will be perfect to kill some time. If you are looking for two girls with guns, one of them very strong with no emotions at all and the other trying to be cool, a much deeper story, yuri subtext and NO panties go watch Noir and you´ll fell fully satisfied. read more

The story is totally yuri, there are only few guys with no important role and almost all girls are interested in girls, but the theme is treated in a kind and natural way. Despite that, this a comedy and a very good one, I really laugh all the time while read it. The story is focused in some characters and their feelings, dont go deeper than that, it´s a light-hearted story and a very funny comedy about people and their relationships.
Nice and clean, the art is quite beautiful. Actually, it´s one of my favourites.
They are all memorable. Their personalities are easy to understand, there are a lot of diferent types, and they really work togheter and make the story very funny.
This is one of my favourite series, I read the few chapters so many times and I laugh in all of them. I can´t wait to read more of them. It´s rare to find a good yuri, with no fanservice, panty shots, and the old (and boring) cliches.
If you are looking for a good yuri story or just a nice comedy I recomend this manga, i just can´t find any imperfection. You certainly will remember the story and characters for a long time. read more

The story is very original and the progress of the characters and their past is very deeper.
The story is focused in each member of Student Council, their relationships and the quest of Utena to find her prince and became a prince herself. It shows like someone can fight for his own wishes, live the way he wants and the importance of friendship. A very good history that influencied a lot of others that came after, great and memorable characters made this an unlosable history to anyone.
You have to pay a lot of attention to understand this. But basically Utena is a girl who was save by a guy when she was a child. Some years later, she is looking for this guy (her prince) and trying to be like him. She goes to a academy where she mets the rose´s bride, a girl that is traded in duels between the members of Student Council trying to obtain the power to make miracles from a place called something like "end of the world". Just read it and try to figure this yourself.
There´s nothing special about the art, it´s nice and clear, easy to understand.
Each character is special and have a deep desenvolviment. You can only 100% understand them if you watch the series too. The manga is too short to desenvolve them all, so the story don´t pay much attention to the secondary characters.
It´s a great manga and makes you want to know more about this world. Certainly
influenced many others titles.
All the Utena´s world is very complicated to understand, the manga is the easiest way to introduce you in this world, many things are more explained in the serie and the movie, so don´t miss them. read more
