A year and a half after originally watching this anime, and two things still seperate it from many anime's I have watched.
1) It's still my favorite anime of all time
2) It still sends shivers down my spine when thinking about it.
How far would you go for the one you loved? What lengths would you go to, to be a free person? Two exceptional questions to ask yourself when watching this. These are decisions the protagonist must make throughout the whole series.
In this series, what attracts me is the heartbreak the leading male recieves, and how he can still push through. Despite being heartless and
having no feelings, he still finds a way for them to show.
The story is a 10 out of 10 for me. It drew me and it is to this day the only anime I have sat through in one night to watch. Being pulled in episode after episode is a real feat and this anime does it well.
The art I gave an 8 out of 10. The art didn't bother me, but it wasn't what I was paying attention to throughout the series.
The sound is a 9 out of 10 for me. It really brings up the intensitive level of the series.
Characters are a 10 out of 10. Ein and Zwei are just loveable, even if they are heartless. While both can frustrate you, you can feel the despair they go through as they want to be taken away from their "slavery" and become their own person. You can also feel the nefariousness of Drei when she comes back, but she is also a person who just wants to be accepted.
Enjoyment, 9 out of 10. It kept me up till 5 am, if that isn't enjoyment and anticipation I don't know what is.
Overall, 9 out of 10. No series if perfect and I refuse unless the circumstance is extremely rare to give a 10, however if a series was to be given a 10 by me, this would be it. This is the epitome of a brilliant anime in my eyes.
