To young Oz Vessalius, heir to the Vessalius Duke House, the perilous world called the Abyss is nothing more than a folktale used to scare misbehaving children. However, when Oz's coming-of-age ceremony is interrupted by the malicious Baskerville Clan intent on banishing him into the depths of the Abyss, the Vessalius heir realizes that his peaceful life of luxury is at its end. Now, he must confront the world of the Abyss and its dwellers, the monstrous "Chains," which are both not quite as fake as he once believed.

Based on the supernatural fantasy manga of the same name, Pandora Hearts tells the story of fifteen-year-old Oz's journey to discover the meaning behind the strange events that have overtaken his life. Assisted by a mysterious Chain named Alice, whose nickname is "Bloodstained Black Rabbit," and members of a clandestine organization known as "Pandora," Oz begins to realize his existence may have more meaning than he could have ever imagined.

*Spoiler-free* This is my first review, so please go easy on me, lol.

I watched Pandora Hearts with no expectations. I found the anime randomly from user recommendations on another show. I was shocked that I would enjoy it this much!

Please take note of this: This show is not complete, and only makes it partway in the manga. It desperately needs a second season to answer the overall-plot. If you’re the type that can’t handle a show ending early, don’t watch it. Here’s an example to what I mean: imagine Attack on Titan stopping on season 1, or having FMA end on episode 30 - ...

Mixed Feelings
The anime has a good story and good music and has a good character developed i think the art style is great for the show it was perfect in some scenes.I did enjoy the scene where the main mc went insane and serious at times some the character are well rounded they all have strengths and weakes some of the characters are smart and stupid and other two characters Alice and Break they are all was hungry some of characters did i thought react in realistic way and some did't
but just the ending is still confusing to understand it alone i might read the ...

Pandora Hearts

I have to make one thing clear in advance, if you want to watch "Pandora Hearts" but at the same time you are a manga reader, do yourself a favor and read the manga.

The anime adaptation of Pandora Hearts includes the first 3 arcs and thus roughly the first 35 chapters. The last 3 episodes are filler episodes with an alternate ending.

Although I was mostly entertained by the anime, this is one of the worst manga adaptations I've seen. The pacing was almost non-existent, and some episodes dragged on for ages. Tension was completely undermined thanks to that, of course. Even some ...
