With the initiation of the Patrian civil war came the creation of half-beast, half-human soldiers—a development of the outnumbered Northerners in a desperate attempt to counter the overwhelming Southern forces. Able to quickly dominate battlefields and achieve victory with ease, the soldiers' godlike abilities earned them the name "Incarnates." However, as the war raged on, the Incarnates encountered a problem involving the beasts inside them that they were unable to rectify by ordinary means.

Once the war was over, mysteries and accounts of the Incarnates submitting to the misfortune of their war days surfaced. Aware of the horrors they faced during the war, Special Sergeant Major and former captain of the Incarnates Hank Henriette becomes a Beast Hunter—those who take the lives of Incarnates who have succumbed to the issues they experienced on the battlefields.

After witnessing her father, a former Incarnate soldier, meet his end at the hands of one such Beast Hunter, Nancy Schaal Bancroft resolves to hunt the man who took her father's life. However, Nancy's eye-opening encounter with the Beast Hunter influences her to instead seek the reason behind her father's death and the Incarnates' problematic existence in society.

tl;dr: A solid start with an interesting premise and unique setting, but a major decline in writing quality as it progresses.

Due to various economic circumstances, the nation of Patricia broke out into a Civil War. The north created fearsome beast like super soldiers known as Incarnates in order to win the war. However, after that the Incarnates returned to their homes still possessing their tremendous powers. Furthermore, they all seemed to be ticking time bombs destined to lose their humanity and go on rampages. As such, the government decided to eliminate all Incarnates.

Hank, the former captain of the Incarnates and one of the most powerful, ...

Mixed Feelings
This is a review of the anime only. I have not read the manga.

I felt this anime had a ton of potential that it never lived up to, but let me preface with two confessions:

1. I watched this in the background while doing other things. It had about 65% of my attention. I did go back and rewatch parts if I was suddenly confused or lost. It didn't help. I don't know if this was a manga first (most are) and there was an assumption that we'd read it ... or what, but it was easy to get lost where it concerned character actions and ...
