Rather unexpectedly and surprisingly, this show pulled off a really satisfying ending. I just couldn't help but smile when Gareki pushed Nai away affectionately after the latter said smtg cheesy cos that's so Gareki.

I wonder if the higher-ups are ever gg to stop being lenient towards the second and first ship captains cos those captains seem to be doing anything they want without having to face any type of consequence whatsoever, at least not shown on-screen.

For a show that's mostly decent at best, the last episode really wrapped quite nicely imo. And the ending where Karoku woke up was a nice touch.

Nai is one of the most boring protagonists I have ever seen. Didnt like this enough to give the manga a shot.

Yeah,Nai was quite boring.the ending itself seems to be begging for a sequel.the last episode was so anti-climatic!i was seriously expecting a lot more from it.the series ended with a whimper,actually.all in all,a pretty forgettable anime for me.

will try the manga eventually but not very impressed with this adaption...it was mostly eye candy and ear candy LOL as well as very obvious fujoshi bait

man this was such a disappointing show, the first few episodes were really special and intriguing but it went downhill around the middle and the ending totally sucked.

Second season please?!?!

I need to know what happens in anime form ;-(.. Plus the teaser of Karoku waking up at the end.... I guess it's on to the manga for me.

I really liked this series. This definitely needs a second season, but either way I loved Karneval. Regardless of what anyone says, I liked the main characters a lot and I felt satisfied at how they wrapped it up.

If it had more episodes or another season, it would probably end up in my favorites.

Woooooow, what an amazing surprise! I loved this anime, it was so sweet! Was very pleasantly surprised, so glad I picked this up and gave it a go. Definitely underrated; probably because it's a shoujo, but really it feels like a shounen. Apart from the art and the brief shounen ai moments, there was nothing else shoujo-ish; so people came here with different expectations. Maybe the manga is shoujo, but this anime is shounen as it's filled with action-heavy plot and fight scenes, unlike typical shoujo which usually has dramatized plot and romance.

I loved the characters - Nai, Tsukumo, and especially Yogi. I also loved the art so much; it's the main reason why I watch anime, so having beautifully drawn characters, wonderfully colourful scenery and such attention to detail (like the characters' eyes) was really something awesome for me.

I'll definitely be checking out the manga. So sad there is no season 2 or OVAs yet. Also have to mention the ED, which is super catchy.

WE ARE CIRCUS!!!

Very abrupt and anti-climatic ending...rushed as well, too rushed at the end. I'll give it a 6/10 for keeping me watching it.

boring boring boring boring boring boring boring boring boring boring boring boring boring boring boring boring boring boring booooooooooooooooriiiiiiiiiiiiiiing.

1. thought for the longest time this was a shounen. i don't really care for bishies or not - if you're a good character you're a good character. however COME ON you guys. SERIOUSLY. needless to say when i found out that it was a shoujo i wasn't all that surprised.


2. OP and ED are trash. sounds like something right out of uta no prince sama (ashamed i know that show as well).

3. gareki looked like he would bring the plot along but the writers would never let him get a chance to be himself. he was almost always surrounded by his "friends".

4. nai was (or is, whatever) annoying. i was also expecting some stories of how he ENDED UP IN SHACKLES but apparently no-one could find that story interesting.

5. fights scenes were good - WHEN THEY ACTUALLY HAPPENED. there was barely anything going on, and the plot was everywhere. i tried holding myself out to see if anything good would happen, but that episode with the 9yr old boy took the cake. most of the episodes were treated like cartoons - one episode = one adventure. that was annoying as heck. i liked the fight with the redhead and the two girls, though, i have to admit.

6. what was in that goshdarn box?!?!?!? and where is the answer of nai being a humanimal? karoku (Lord knows i'll know his name 'till the end of time for how many times it was repeated) was just meant for some limp plot device for gareki and nai? he has no meaning? and i totally did NOT get that "new clothes" karoku that "supposedly" took his place.

7. why on earth are people pressurizing how lovely gareki and nai's friendship is? HOW did they become friends? because they act for like familiar strangers. there's no reason either to like the other. as a matter of fact i can't understand how ANYONE is friends with anyone in the ships, but at least they obviously have histories together beforehand so that's not so much big of a deal. but gareki and nai just met. how could they be such close friends when they appear nothing of the like?

8. that random scene in ep 12 when Ponytail "betrayed" circus was out of the blue and so unreal it was nearly laughable.

i will say that the OST was.....good. there are some ones i really love though.

funny to say, i'd watch a S2, but only because the only character that is worth spending the smallest interest in is karoku. i highly doubt there actually BEING a S2, however.

3/10. severely disappointed. dear Lord someone please tell me the manga is different/better.

That was a really great show and a great ending!

A lot of fighting in the last episode and action and it was awesome!

Nai reunited with Karoku at the end and the other version of him, the clone or whatever he was disappeared and said they'd meet again after trying to get Nai to go somewhere with him, not sure where exactly. Maybe he was a clone/hybrid of Karoku, mixed with animal DNA. It seems like it could be a likely possibility and since he was able to talk with Nai, maybe the same breed of little cute fluffy bunny but who knows.

Gareki left to go and train to become part of Circus and become part of something bigger than himself! awww :3

The goodbye hugs was so cute <3 and I'm glad he wants to remain part of the team.

The real Karoku woke up at the end.

I really hope they may eventually make a season 2 as it was just simply put a really great show and I loved everything about it, the look, the characters and the story! just amazing *_*

So many hot guys. I guess it's sayonara to Gareki, Nai, Yogi and the rest of the gang! at least for now~

I might try and read the manga if I have time, not read any for some weeks or maybe months now.

yeah nai and Gareki were useless in the entire series especially Nai he was the worst, here I am thinking he had hidden special powers but he turned out to be some worthless animal. At least Gareki is on the path of becoming the child of the second ship in the organization "circus". The most impressive one was Yogi, although he was too affectionate but he was awesome in the entire show.

This anime is not complete and Karoku's association with Nai is still fully unclear

That was an okay finale, I guess. Loved the action scenes. And I swear Yogi is so gay for Gareki. Huehuehue. Love you, Gareki! <3

a mystery series, by that meaning that i still have no clue what the baja fresh is going on. too weak to be actually considered a mystery series. good artwork and loveable characters and had somethings going for it like ... loveable characters, but at times annoying for their flat-ness.

there are a lot of flaws for this series and the fact that it doesn't have a season 2 doesn't help it's case because nothing can be resolved/it can't redeem itself. however, i guess it speaks for itself the reason why there is no season 2.

entertaining, but nonetheless, a waste of time for those who are watching with the preconceived notion that there will be a message or some greater thematic commentary about the human condition and science of genetic altering.
