Story 1/10: The story in this anime, is pretty much nonexistent. There is no middle, no climax, I'm not even sure if you would call the ending an ending. The story was basically all introduction, each character has 2 episodes where it talks about their backstory and what not. It disappointed me that the main heroine of the story: Yahisa Tsukiko, was barely even talked about. She is supposed to be the main character! And they don't talk about her at all?! You literally know nothing about her so I don't know how this is supposed to be a romance anime, because if you don't know anything about her why do all of the guys like her? Also, there are times when some points are just not explained, it leaves you wondering why something happened but they never address it again or explain it.
Art 10/10: The art is the upside to this anime. I can't say that the characters look bad because they don't, the anime did a good job of making every character look different, which is a challenge because there are 13 guys.
Sound 6/10: There isn't really an opening song but there is an ending song, and I guess I liked that one ok. Background music is fine.
Character 7/10: I thought that the characters were pretty well done excluding the main heroine. They each, like I said, had their own story and 2 episodes to explain that story. Even though it has some nice characters you tend to forget about them later on, because after their episodes they are not really important anymore. One character that was interesting was the student-body President, he is pretty much the only character who shows up continuously throughout the anime. He has a very interesting back story.
Enjoyment 4/10: I did really like this when I first started watching it, but after a while it started to bore me. I would have dropped this but I felt I should just finish it because I was already 12 episodes in, or more, I can't remember. To me, this was extremely boring and painful to watch.
Overall 5/10: I did not like this. It had no plot, not even a hint of intrigue. I would not recommend this to anyone unless you've played the game and really, REALLY, want to watch it. But you're better off not wasting your time with this.
Starry Sky is only 10 min per episode; that is why I originally watched this. Although its only 10 min, it feels like the longest 10 min of your life. read more

Story 9/10: The story of Zetsuen no Tempest is about 2 friends-Fuwa Mahiro and Takigawa Yoshino-who team up with the Kusaribe clan Princess-Hakaze-to figure out who murdered Aika-Mahiro's sister. Hakaze is stuck on an island where she can't use magic. Mahiro wants to seek revenge on his sister's murderer and makes a deal with Hakaze to help free her from the island if she can track down the murderer. Although it starts with Mahiro trying to get revenge on his sister's murderer the story involves a lot more and is more complex than that. They get tied up in magic and 2 trees that are warring with each other.
I thought the story was very intricate and did a very good job of explaining the magic that the Kusaribe clan uses. (usually when I watch a show with magic in it, it isn't used very well.) The story also makes a lot of quotes and references to Shakespeare's Hamlet and Tempest, which keeps the story interesting because of their similarities to the anime. The story gets pretty intense and always manages to keep you interested. The only thing with the story in this anime is that they could have made 2 seasons of 12 episodes; because after the 12 episode there are a lot of changes that could have made the rest of the episodes just a second season.
Art 10/10: The art is very well done, the characters look beautiful and the backgrounds are awesome. They also make fighting scenes look really good.
Sound 10/10: I love all of the opening and ending songs. It also has background music that fits with what's going on in the story. The music always fits the mood.
Character 9/10: The 2 main characters Mahiro and Yoshino are character foils which is why I think it is nice to see the 2 as friends. They have a very complicated friendship which I think is very realistic in my opinion. They are both very interesting characters. But the most interesting character in the whole anime has got to be Fuwa Aika. Even though she is dead you get to see her a lot through flashbacks. Aika has a unique way of thinking that makes you wonder what is going through her head most of the time. It is also very intriguing to know why someone would want to murder her. Aika is very mysterious. Hakaze, hmmm...for some reason Hakaze annoyed me after the 12 episode not sure why. The rest of the characters don't show up on the screen that much so I think it would be nice to know what's going on with them. But I still love all of the characters.
Enjoyment 10/10: I really enjoyed this anime! It was exciting/intense and very different from what I have seen before.
Overall: 10/10: Great story, beautiful art, awesome songs, lovable characters, and just plain amazing! :3 read more
