Story: Simple. Select people have the power to fight off the monsters produced by an omnipotent evil being, who just is. In comes the heroine who has the power to completely vanquish said evil. Oooh. Never saw that coming. Adventuring, etc. Nothing special.
Art: The animation is fairly good through most of the series. I liked the character designs for most of the characters, and they were unique enough that you wouldn't confuse one for the other. The "action sequences" weren't anything special.
Sound: Aside from the OP and ED, the music was boring and annoying at times. The OP is adorably cheesy and catchy, and the ED is just adorably cheesy, but I liked them both. The VAs for this series were one of the main reasons I decided to watch this, and they lived up to my expectations. The casting was good for all the characters, and the acting was decent.
Character: Angelique drove me insane from the moment she appeared on screen, to the last few seconds before the ED in episode 13. While I know good heroines aren't terribly common for this sort of show, Angelique is exceptionally annoying until roughly halfway, where more development and personality is brought in for all the character. The four "knights" Angelique gathers around her took a long time to grow on me, and by the end of the series, I still found the side characters to be overall more interesting and fun to watch. The main cast does seem to have history beyond what this first season was able to dig into, though, they just weren't all my cup of tea.
Enjoyment: My obsession with Erenfried's VA was one of the few things that kept me watching through the first part of the series, but by the last 6 episodes, I was more or less hooked. I liked the series more as things grew darker, rather than the shiny happy people episodes in the beginning. I was a bit disappointed in how the series ended, as the last few episodes basically forgot about some of the cast.
Overall? I'll give it a 6. Decent, light, easy to multi-task to anime. Abyss left me with a cliffhanger, and I liked this season enough to try the second, but if the pace slows up again I'll probably drop it. read more
