As years pass, things change. So do anime. Once, most anime series that people watched were lighthearted series that for the most part concentrated on the fun. Now, many series are trying their hardest to be ambitious and be the next big thing. It is no way a bad thing, and from it spawns many wonderful titles, but sometimes one can get tired of it all.

+ Grounded in a way that anime usually isn't. There are no pink haired lolis with magical swords or anything of the sort here, it's relatively realistic and restrained.

+ Artwork, music, costuming and character design are all very evocative of the setting and time period. It ...
