Its a bit hard to understand, but from what I understand it is a supernatural coming of age type scenario.
Character designs for the humans are decent and enjoyable to look at.
Character design for the Yokai are colorful and eye catchings
Scenery is breathtaking wierther its the modern day city or the interdenominational world alot of hard work was put into this.
Music matches the scenes perfectly I can imagine the OST selling spectacularly.
Koto - Energetic powerhouse female lead
Myou - Playboy monk who also has a very serious side and concerned overall for Koto and the tiwns.
Twins - Energitc sidekicks to Koto
Shouko - Koto's boss is what I gather.
Yokai - (well go into detail later)
Every scene had me on the edge of my seat. I look forward to the next airing of this amazing film.
Just watch it! read more

Like many others have said in their reviews "Never judge a book by it's cover"really comes into to play for this anime. I thought this would just be a teenage boxum babe vs another teenage boxum babe type anime that would only focus on fan service I was dead wrong.
Story - The main focus is a Masane and her 7-8 year old daughter Riko the two of them face many struggles from running away from the "Child protection agency" (aka NSWF) and finding a place to live. The first part of the story is about Masane trying to prove that she is more than capable of taking care of Riko on her own so that Riko and her can stay together.
When a monster also know as "X-CON" attacks Masane in a jail after she was separated by Riko , Masane's power awakens using the "witchblade" to not only save herself , but destroy the X-CON. She is hired by Dojima industries which is a arms dealer corporation but the main focus is on the relation ship between Masane and the companies Director (who sorta reminds me of bruce wayne.)
Using her pay from her job (Killing X-CONs) Masane settles down at bar/restaurant/apartment complex with her daughter. This place is full of interesting characters : the perverted old man , the timid fortune teller , a big yet silent man named Micheal (who is later discovered to be somebody famous from over seas ) , the owner and land lady who is still full of energy and is one of the first people to take care of Riko , and Yuusuke who could also be considered a Hero in this story who is a freelance photographer who snoops around places like the NSWF for information to sell to the media much to the police cheif's chargin.
Clone blades or "sisters" are the main antagonist in this story yet most of them have problems of their own like Reina's desire to be a mother to her daughter and learning more about human emotions and the Third generation of sister Maria's (main antagonist) desire to be loved by a mother. Clone blades like the original have a certain defect the cause the user to break in other words die. the second half of the series focuses on Masane preparing for her death and making sure Riko will be taken care of by her father which turns out to be the Director that Masane has feelings for.
The final part of this anime is the battle between Masane (Witch blade) vs the last three sisters vs Iweapons (machines) that are now acting like X-CONs and are drawn to the witch blades power. Masane uses up her last moments to take down the strongest sister Maria and save Riko (Who would of ended up the next witch blade) from the same fate as herself by destroying the witchblade with its own power and herself in the process making the ultimate sacrifice for her daughter. The anime ends with Riko standing with the director (Masane's lover) remembering what Masane said "I will always be with you."
Art - Character design is to notch I found most of the girls down right beautiful. And the scenery of the tower at the final moments was a masterpiece.
Sound - Pretty badass fighting soundtracks definite ipod ad and the for the touching/softer moments they had the perfect tunes.
The first OP "XTC" (Escasty) was the embodiment of Masane's excitement she found in battle which was brought back on the final episode since Masane would have a lot of slaying to do thus alot of excitement putting her life on the line.
The second OP "Dear bob" is really refreshing mixing soft rock with sorta reggae really original sound to be found in a anime. It now makes me cry becuase the animation of teh OP is full of heartwarming moments of Masane and Riko with the rest of the cast.
Characters - All of the supporting characters excuted their roles perfectly very entertaining.
Main developments were -
Takayma (Director) - Becoming more human like and learning how to smile and have fun thanks to his daughter Riko and Masane his love.
Masane - She starts off pretty childish and mostly has to have Riko tell her what is right from wrong even though she is the mother. She gains responsibility pretty fast juggling motherhood with destroying X-CONS. She ultimately she matures and finds out a peaceful way to tell Riko about her slowly dieing that she will always be with her.
Enjoyment / Overall
A excellent and entertaining anime I am glad I gave it a chance.

Story - A mix of tragedy , comedy , Super natural , brotherhood , unrequited love , symbolic incest (maybe) and add penguins and you get Mawaru penguindrum. Each episode makes me want more I was so eager to watch the latest episode that I didn't even care about the quality of the video. The story so far revolves around two brothers following orders from a person that some people call" Princess of the crystal" who possesses their sister's body to obtain the "penguindrum". The reward for this task is their sister's survival thus the"'Princess of the crystal" calls them to initiate the "Survival strategy" everyday and each day the come closer and closer to finding out what the "peguin drum" is.
Very unique that is executed in a very entertaining way.
Art - Charecter design is gorgeous pretty boys and pretty girls. The background art is full of detail and vibrant colors.
Sound - Love the Op , Love the transformation song "Rock over japan" which was originally a old school rock song but they gave it more of a pop feel , and the ED is wonderful "Dear future" .
Kanba - Very rare to have a main protagonist who is nearly flawless. He is a playboy who has learned various skills from his ex's from hacking to breaking into houses he knows it all. He can read situations well and knows how to handle women using his handsomeness and swagger. The last part of ep 1 showed that he might have a incest side. (Which might be a side affect of Princess of the Crystal taking out what looked to be his heart on their first encounter.)
Shouma - Girly looking and easily surprised. He is more of your typical protagonist yet he still has some good qualities. He is kinda the opposite to his brother in many ways. I can see him playing the straight man in future situations.
Himari - Her voice is HHHNNNNGGGGG!! She is so cute I want to take her home. Meanwhile her Princess of the crystal mode is more of a dominating personality and can be seen as more sexy (Ok that's just me :P) I LOVE HER
Ringo - At first I thought she would be your typical blushing love interest for one of the boys I WAS WRONG. This girl is full of surprises and can only be described as a Yandere stalker crazy chick. She will be entertaining to watch
Shouma/Kanba's friend - So far faceless character who seems to like molesting shouma as seen in ep 1 and 2 he is a playboy like Kanba.
Tabuki sensei - Shoujo male teacher nuff said.
Penguin #1 - Kanba's penguin and like Kanba he is a bit of a pervert but is also more strict.
Penguin #2 - Shouma's penguin who is a bit on the dumb side but funny non the less
Penguin #3 - Himari's female penguin attendant who mimics her.
Enjoyment - Lets just say I watched episodes 1 and 2 at least 10 times waiting for ep 3.
Overall - best anime of 2011 summer easily if it stays on the path its on. read more

I kinda hate how Tiger is acts like a dad to blue rose, dragon kid, Origami, bunny, AND OBAMA'S baby BUT NOT TO HIS OWN DAUGHTER (unless it happens off screen) Seriously I wanna see some father daughter bonding and I wanna know more about his marriage.
Tiger is a cool guy because its kinda of rare to have non virgin protagonist let alone a protagonist with a kid. But, thats what adds to Tigers awesomeness he is a cool comedic guy + a father + a hero he is plain awesome. THO HE WOULD LOOK 100% COOLER/SEXIER WITHOUT THE GOATEE. no homo.
Great show I love how thier eyes glow when they are using thier powers kinda reminds me of a super hero version of "darker than black"
ANIMATION 10/10 - im surprised that Blassreiter's animators didn't animate this becuase of the 3D 2D transitions the City looks amazing nicely done!
Charecters 10/10 - All the characters are simply kick ass and all the heroes have something speacil bout them
Tiger - Also a dad and comedic
Bunny - Bishounene with a attitude
Dragon kid - Kick ass little girl
Blue rose - Loves to sing and likes(?) Tiger
Bull guy - Idk much about him
Sky High - Lmfao he is kind of a goof ball even when he is being serious and even tho he is ranked 1st he is still a kind hearted guy.
Phionex- Lmfao this guy is Literally and Figuratively FLAMING but, I freaking love him xD He is so funny often teasing the other protagonist sexually but, he can also be very serious he gets angry when he finds out that there is a NEX who can also use fire that is equal to or greater than his. Overall he is to hot to handle xD.
Origami- My second favorite hero he is kind of a weeabboo but, he owns tho I want to see him in action using his swords AND WTF IS UP WITH HIS BAGGY PANTS? Would of looked 100% cooler if they gave him normal sized jeans.
Music 10/10 - They use some western american hero music which sounds awesome
Overall 10/10 - GREAT SHOW MUST WATCH GOOD LUCK MODE TIGER AND BUNNY OVER AND OUT! read more
