I have read a lot of robot themed manga, a lot of shoujo manga, a lot of fantasy monster race manga, and I have to say, this is one of, if not the best, manga I have read in those genres.

The art... is mediocre at best. It's typical shoujo, and I despise that art style. There are a few instances where it's not typical, but as I can remember less than 5 panels... I can't give it more. That said, the art wasn't offensively bad. The proportions and facial expressions weren't so out there that it ever took me out of the manga.

this is a seriese that you have to give 4 episodes to to determine if you like it or not.

episodes 1 and 2 paint a depressingly realistic way aliens would be handled, episode 3 and 4 do more justice to what this series is really like.

once you get passed the first 2 episodes, the comedy portion of the anime picks up.

the only reason that story for me gets an 8 is because i want more back story to the characters, why are the dog ones the evil ones, i mean i get it, cats and dogs, but why are the dogs seen as the bad read more

with overall this manga has a very old-style of drawing, the manga has a story that's a bit hard to follow yet not hard to understand.

I really believe this manga could've worked well with the retooling, I never understood exactly what the hell the main male character was doing. I don't completely understand the main female character either.there is a time jump in here and a flashback and it's hard for me to figure out exactly where and where it ended and what the hell was going on in the middle of it.

with the time skip there was an undisclosed amount of time between read more

this manga has a very sure we shoujo feel to it, thankfully the art isn't. Throughout the whole story there is almost no relationship, not exactly what I was expecting. By the end of the story, I was over expecting a different two choices, but that's not what they had in mind.

Overall I can't say liked the story, I like to setting, I like the characters, and very thankful that the art wasn't the normal shoujo considering the story was typical shoujo. If I disregard the story just take this manga as a chapter by chapter story and not the overall, I like it a read more

ignorant people who disrespect the sea, meet your doom.... yea, thats how it basically starts out. there tends to be at least 1 dramaish moment an episode, that really makes this series drag, but despite that its probably one of the better, if not the best, anime of 2010.

this is based off manga who chapters feel like a 4koma, but in full manga form. as of chapter 46 (i have no idea what its up to in japan, but im at the very least doubleling it) none of the parts in the anime that tend to drag along for to long are in read more

they nailed it. this is what the anime should have been like, animating actual chapters from the manga, with filler only there to add to the story and bridge gaps that are made due to taking things WAY out of order, and it manages to do it all well.

for the most part the characters are the exact same as they were in the manga, the parts form the manga they animated were more or less all one off chapters with no real development in them at all, so its perfect to pick up and watch.

the only fault that i found in this was read more

first off, the story is basically a gag manga, so its not important, what is important in a gag manga is the characters, and here is where it gets good.

the best way for me to explain it is to refer to a different character, guu from Jungle wa Itsumo Hare nochi Guu, but everyone basically knows that Kimidori is different, unlike guu.

so weird magical researcher wants a yellow dragon, out pops a little girl who makes him her pet, and that is the setting and over all plot of the manga.

i believe its only 12 chapters, not long enough for the setting and read more

to love ru, one of my favorite manga, got the shaft here.

first and foremost i have to say this, i hate filler, but believe that it can be done right, and can be worth watching

there are a total of 2 non filler episodes, 3 episodes that are half filler half in the manga, and the rest is filler. i made it half way through episode 15 before i couldn't go on anymore. from my count they had up to chapter 104 to work with, at least up to chapter 58. the filler in this anime is all just bad... inexcusably bad.

the art is read more

so lets take you on the trip into this one. at first its wtf is going on here, than its i kind of get it, than it turns into this slapsticky kind of comedy, than its lol again, than theres the episode that is drama infused, than it goes back to lol, drama HEAVY and lol for the final episode.

now for the details.

the story should have been nonexistent throughout the anime. they try to tie the episodes together in this whole wtf kind of way, and without going into spoilers have to resort to bs plots and just stupid things to keep the "story" read more

this isn't so much a review, as it is a guide to your full enjoyment.
read the first 3 cases, if you liked them, you will love this manga, currently as of writing this, i'm in the 500 range, but i didn't update and when i left off i forgot how far i was, so i'm leaving this at 487.

i am saying this that the first 3 cases are not spoiler and will only talk about the beginnings not the ends, as to not ruin it for you.

there are 3 case types:
first there is the non event, basically they are not investigating anything read more
