Takaya Ougi is just a typical high school guy who wants nothing more than to protect his best friend and live a normal life. Enter Nobutsuna Naoe, an older man who informs Takaya that he is in fact the reincarnation of Lord Kagetora. Naoe, himself a possessor, awakens Takaya's abilities to exorcise evil spirits and fight the Fuedal Underworld. While most possessors remember their former lives before being reincarnated, Takaya does not. Naoe is thankful for this, considering his passionate and abusive past with his Lord Kagetora. As Takaya improves his abilities, he also begins to remember what Naoe did because of his love for him. Meanwhile the dark forces of the Hojo and Fuma clans begin their attack as the Fuedal Underworld descends upon the living world.

Want to watch some cool bishounen? Check out this story about Takaya Oogi, a regular high school student trying to lead a normal life. I looked at this series with curiosity of how shounen-ai would be used. But, I found the story more interesting beyond what I imagined.

First of all, I want to say that I found the artwork incredibly impressive. I think ...

Mixed Feelings
MoB was an anime I've always wanted to watch since my childhood, but never had the opportunity to do so. Frankly, the taste of this anime might have been a bit sweeter with nostalgia, but not by much.

STORY: 4/10. This anime suffers from Loveless syndrome in that it has a few deep plot points of note but spectacularly manages to complete--and barely even scratch--none of them. For the first six or so episodes, the anime paces its introduction of its characters at a consistent rate, where even if the plot is inundated with historical references, you can still keep up with it. At this ...

Preliminary (2/13 eps)
So this was playing in the "yaoi" (not really) room at Fanime 2007, and I parked myself and my luggage in there since I did not yet have my badge or a hotel room in which to store my stuff. (Con advice: make sure at least one person from each travel party has a name on the hotel reservation so you can get a key upon arrival.)

Guh. GUH.

Admittedly I was interested in this anime upon seeing the previews. The character designs reminded me of "X" and "Tokyo Babylon" (the main character is a Seishirou ripoff liek whoa), and there was some nice scenery. I have ...
