Mysterious disappearances are occurring one after the other in Tatsumi Town. Kiriya has a vision from a mysterious beautiful girl with pointy ears. A book talking for an alternative world is found. And Mao searching for her long lost friend, Zero, comes to our world. But what she didn’t expect is to find Souma and Kureha, and even less, to accidentally take them to her world. Now, Souma and Kureha have to find a way to come back. But other forces are playing their part in the darkness and Souma with Kureha will find that going back is harder than they first anticipated.

Setting the general scene is done well in the first episode, introducing a small amount of the cast during the first half and themes that exist throughout in the second. There is a large cast of characters present within the series, however they do tend to lack any depth to them, feeling flat and plain. An example being during the early parts of the series when both Souma and Kureha are taken to End Earth, we learn about the Soul Blades, which come from the heart of the person at hand. Typically Kureha gives Souma her heart to fight off the enemies at the start read more

The story was pretty good, although somewhat predictable. What anime isn't?? Throughout the story, I was annoyed by 2 things the most; one was that zero doesn't really have ANY point in the story except for as a ridiculous background information to how some characters were part of a group.
second, the sword drawing techniques kept changing from standing, bending over backwards, to having ::cough::orgasms::cough::. Which really made me think the author was still indecisive about plot/animation in general.
Characters were pretty good. Some of them could have used more development.
Also, there is not much to say for the sound, near the end the background music was read more

This is one of those animes that I wonder how I managed to watch through.

There is nothing wrong with it in itself, but in every part of it there is something missing in the plot and the whole anime feels rushed. The character development is okay, but there is no feeling put behind the changes that the characters go through and again it feels rushed. In this type of anime one would expect the characters to be a little more reflected in the sense that the viewer is more aware of the changes that the characters undergo, Souma for example has a change read more

I'll start with my conclusion so i can wrap things up in a sentence.

This anime had the potential to be a good or even really good anime,unfortunately everything was destroyed by the author's poor writing of character and action and the small amount of episodes.

Story: It was meant to be good...but somewhere it got lost...that was mostly because of the fast paced changing scenes.For crying out loud..it was ridiculous how characters just APPEARED in a place without a good reason whatsoever,ok i understand that the story had to go that way and the authors had to bring them in that place but they could have read more
