So since the other topic was locked, figure I might as well make one of my own. I bought the limited edition and 2nd boxset of this a few days ago at Best Buy and can’t put the show down. I’m watching this series right now and it’s blowing me away. So far I have it rated as 10/10. This series is perfect. it’s dark, gripping, suspenseful, and cruel. And it has so much style to it! This show is perfectly paced. it’s quite faster then Madlax and Noir were, but don’t expect Black Lagoon level non-stop action either. This is a show that does things it’s own way. This series is amazing. I love the characters! And there’s so many great twists and turns in the story you won’t see coming. So many points where if one tiny little thing happened a little differently the story would have gone down an entirely different path, and would be vastly different. I love this! I think this is going to be my favorite show from Mashimo, even beating out Dominion which is quite a feat. Because if anyone knows me, they know how much I love that show.
