If all you are looking for is characters screaming at eachother while they try to chop eachother up this is not your cup of tea.
Randomly on the earth where the story takes places massives amounts of elements dissapear(only one element at a time and only in a limited area), apparently they are being transported to this alternative dimension which only kids (with a specialy developed lobe area) can detect.
What this means is that kids that can detect this world are chosen to go there and retrieve the elements unless the world will fall to ruin. To get the element they must fight a "monster" that has been infused with this transported element using often times chemistry. Therefore there are very much a "monster of the week" feel to it and the "fights" if you can call it that are rarely interesting in themselves.
However I predict a major plot-twist coming up, this series are about to become interesting and change pace. That however is just my guess but I can say for sure that the story is progressing and getting more and more interesting.
Its hard to tell, still after 12 eps its very up in the air what is really going on.
The art is quite nice I think, pretty clean and smooth and very colourful. I appreciate the animation and am rarely dissapointed.
Its really nothing grand, its decent I dont mind the seiryuu(voice actors) at all but the bgm is a dissapointment. The intro though is actually catchy ^^
I like the characters of this series, admittadly it has really taken a while, they were quite... annoying at the start and the first 8 eps or so when they were fleshing out the characters were painful.
However if you get through it you will find yourself growing fond of most of them and even interested in how they will develop and most of all in how their relationships will turn out.
The first 5-8 eps or so(dont remember exactly when it got better) were around a 5 in enjoyment, really bland, unintersting and frankly a bore. However at the start of any series all they can really depend on is the action since neither the characters or the plot has been introduced and is yet to catch your attention. This series weakness is just its action, no surprise the start is slow, untill the plot starts to take form.
Lately the relationships and growing characters has kept the series enjoyable for me, much more so than mindless action shows. Lastly just got to add, you people who compare it to naruto and claim the main character is stupid, well Naruto was such a clever character in ep 1 wasn't he :P
This show holds potential, hopefully it will changes gears totally and turn into something entirely different, there are hints at such things. This could aslo admittadly end up the pile of junk it presently is but who knows, it definitely is interesting read more

This series is shounen and romance geared, if its the mecha or the action you are mostly interested in this is not for you.
Basicly this series mixes some half-baked action(I'm not saying the action is bad its just not the focus and is pretty rare in occurance) and some deep character designs, development and an overall shallow plot.
The thing with this series is that while the main plot is not so great they focus on character depth and the sub characters story is often being told while the main story is progressing but is at most time more interesting then the main plot.
I really like the art, I dont really like the CGI lets just say it doesn't bother me.
The only thing is.... Huge bouncing boobies kind of buggs me, there's some in this series.. But be not alarmed its not close to the over-the-top ecchi shows.... I found it annoying but bearable. Aside from this "issue" the animation is top notch nice looking and smooth.
Great intro song, quite decent outro and the background music is there, very plain but not bad.
The characters in this series are very interesting atleast most of them, there are some exceptions but there are lots of characters that will really surprise you in this series. You never know whats going to happen with them, they develop and change just when you thought you knew them and at most times in a totaly logical way but no way near the usual archtypes.
Its fun, to not really know what is going to happen next, to not really know what a character is going to do. Its so refreshing compared to other shounen anime where the character archtypes are so predictable its silly. Its basicly like this, instead of looking forward to and wondering how they are going to beat enemy boss, you're sitting there wondering what's going to happen before they meet the boss.
Surprising action packed romantic shounen series, what's not to love? The originality of this series is really impressive!

The story is nothing great, its rather quite simple but its ingenious in its simplicity.
Simple but touching, not complex but still intriguing because of this it flows very naturaly and at a high pace which just draws you in.
I dont have much so say about this, its average, I think the characters movement and motions seem more fluent and detailed then usual otherwise its good but not great.
Just amazing, I almost never noticed the music while watching the series the music just flowed naturaly with everything else, enhancing the enjoyment considerably. Looking back at the series now its almost always a good piece of background music being played.
Here is where it starts getting interesting, there's a bunch of characters in this series offcourse and at a first glanze everyone seems like a run of the mill character.
We've got the typical rash and hot-headed shounen main character, the lost twin brother, the first-aggresive, later-loving girl with the perfect love triangel buildup and the perfect "sensei" to always be there and guide everyone.
However none of these characters will fit into the molds that you think they will, the characters of this series will always come out of nowhere and surprise you with their depth.
I enjoyed this series tremendously, I just got sucked into its pace and after that it was over in one seemingly very short night.
Something I haven't mentioned yet that really made this series great is its humour, yeah thats right, you cant see the genre "comedy" associated with this series anywhere can you?
But its in there, its not very frequent at all but when its coming its coming to squeeze the shit out of your stomach muscles believe me XD Those rare short moments really brightened this series up considerably and earned it the overall 8.
This series has decent drama but bad action however what wins me over is the "feel" of the show. How I just cant wait for whats coming up next, its not that i really care about whats going to happen its just that once your stuck in its mood you just feel that whatever is going to happen you know its going to be one heck of a ride.
