^ Good introduction of the characters. The seiyuu are so easily recognizable :-)

It sounds extremely generic. He has childhood friend/main heroine (who has the same last name as him. I'm guessing she was adopted or they're cousins) and for some reason (other than self-insertion) he doesn't have his family's powers so of course he's the one who gets thrown into all the shit...

And the biggest, lamest cliche line in almost every other anime synopsis that made me pre-drop this: "He wants/has a peaceful life before (such and such) comes into his life. What happens next?!?!"

Like Guilty Crown (I love it but I even admit this is true), this seems like an anime that just has a pretty face going for it.

After blasting through all manga chapters, this series strongly reminds me of Ao no Exorcist, albeit with more dominant female lead and being more nitty-gritty with its supernatural stuffs. And yeah, i rather agree with Newhopes that this series seem kinda average on some ways, and the latest chapters have become too shounen-ish for my taste. But on the other hand, i liked how the supernatural battles are executed in more straightforward and fantastical fashion, and the silly bantering between the character is just fun to read.

For people who said that this series is harem, i'm not really sure about that. This one just comes off to me as one-sided romance between the female and male lead, with other female characters are either being mildly interested with the male lead, or simply accompanying him in battle, nothing more.

Read a little of the manga and it wasn't that good to be honest, so don't know if I'll bother watching this.

KanaHana voicing the main heroine. The only reason I need to watch this show.

I haven't read the manga in awhile....but I'll look forward to this. Animation wise, the series has its style so far for what I'm looking forward to.

Quite epic BGM in the C84 PV. On the PV itself, not bad indeed. I'm really looking forward to this anime now.
