A group of enigmatic white-haired children has been spotted at different times and places in Europe for over 500 years. Always with the appearance of 11-year-olds, they behave far more mature than they should be, never grow old, and seem to have supernatural power. What they have been seeking is a girl, and the only clue they have is a picture with a crescent moon. Now, in the year of 2012, an athletic boy named Tohma is about to be involved in this centuries-long mystery.

The story attempted to tell a lot, but many of the plot points were unnecessary, anti-climatic, and gimmicky.

I had a huge complaint about multiple characters (in-fact, my biggest complaint about the show), but I cannot even brush on the reason ...

After watching anime for around 25 years, I can tell you with all the confidence of this world that this is BAD, this is so bad that it is cringe bad. I am not going to go into all of the details and all of the reasons because I could make full essays just single episode based let alone for the whole anime. I am just going to point out the worst things and the biggest flaws.


They try to make it seem like this story is very mysterious, very dark, very complicated and edgy but all they do is spit in their own mouth when ...
