I think everyone who has saw this anime would come to the same conclusion, it is a masterpiece.

It has all the Shakespearian package (friendship, love, treason and death), perfectly combined. The way the story is told immediately gets you onto the medieval, kind of magical world, all the characters are deep and well developed and you can’t help to identify yourself with any of the characters or their ideals.

The only flaw that I could see in this anime would be that for some animated scenes, it often uses the old water painting technique (static image to show a scene and the camera would just move around that image), but it’s easily to ignore it once you start getting in to the story. It also has a slow start but by episode 3 you’ll get hang to it.

The anime follows accurately the story of the manga, so if you have read it you won’t get disappointed.
