I'd like to start off by saying that this was a new experience for me.
This is the first anime I have watched in full, and I was even inspired
read the manga (another first for me). However, I thoroughly enjoyed
this series as a whole. I did think that some of the humor was slightly
cheesy and run into the ground, but most of it was alright. I think
that the character development was excellent for most characters,
especially in Karin's case. Karin Aoi starts off as a naive girl with a
fiery personality, but as she is forced to make tough decisions, Karin
becomes a very mature young woman.
There are a few things that ruin this series for me, and the front
runner of those is the ending...Now, I won't ruin it for anyone, but
because of the ending, I'd love to meet the writer of this series,
shake his hand, and punch him in the face. The ending ruined the entire
series (for me anyways). Instead of walking away having enjoyed a great
story, I am just left here wondering what possessed Katsura to write
this ending. It's just heart-wrenching and depressing.
You may be wondering by now why this got a 7 from me by now, after
reading my rant about the awful ending. I gave it a 7 because of the
great character development, the decent story, the great artwork an
animation, and how memorable it was. I would recommend this series (and
the manga) to almost anyone, considering the fact that I'm not even
into this kind of stuff and I enjoyed it.
Also, a message to Katsura and the other creators that won't read this:
If you were to pick this project back up for a spin off series for
Karin, you'd have a gold mine. She was a fan-favorite from what I've
heard, and I can guarantee that it would be a hit, so long as you don't
screw it up again. Please pick it back up and give us an ending that
