Momiji Fujimiya was just an ordinary girl until she learns the hard way about her lineage as the next opponent of supernatural demons who threaten her world when those monsters try to kill her. With the help of a boy called Kusanagi, who cursed to be a superpowerful bodyguard for her, she escapes but not before she is implanted with special crystal called a Blue Seed that allows her to detect the creatures' presence. To protect her and satisfy her demands to help find this menace, she is allowed to join a special government team assembled to fight these monsters. Together, they wage an ongoing war to protect Earth from the supernatural horrors that threaten it. Written by

I remember going online and trying to find anime that I might be interested in, and coming across reviews of "Blue Seed". After reading some reviews it seemed like an anime that was up my ally, action, comedy, some romance and many reviews praised it's story. So, being excited for a new anime to get invested into, I went and bought the box set and started a weekend of anime.
I watched 4 episodes and then pulled the DVD out and went back to get a refund. This anime is GARBAGE. I just don't understand why people loved it so much.
First, let's get into the artwork. It's crap. This, somehow, looks WORSE than Dragonball. (I apologize if you're a fan of Dragonball, but really, it sucks). The characters don't look good, the animation is not fluid, and I found myself not interested in any of the artwork except the occasional Aragami. It's bland and, quite frankly, repulsive.
Second, let's look at the story. THERE ISN'T ONE. Sure there's something about monsters called Aragami and a Government agency that fights them, but seriously every episode is another monster hunt. That's it. No character development, no deep plot, no plot twists, no emotional impact. NOTHING. I have read that the story comes in at the last quarter of the series, but to get to it you need to watch the series from the beginning. Really? I have to sit through over 9 hours of crap to get any story out of this?
Let's compare this to a GOOD anime like: FullMetal Alchemist or Mai Hime. They have their episodes that are fillers, but generally the story is paced out across the entire series and the filler episodes let you get to know the characters better. Even Full Metal Panic Fumoffu, which didn't really have a central storyline, it was just a bunch of small stories while Sousuke was in school with Chidori, had better situations than this crap. (By the way, Full Metal Panic is another excellent anime series).
In this series you don't get anything more out of the characters. The main girl, Momiji, is a whiny little girl who is clumsy and always complains about her panties being shown off when she falls down, and yet she still wears ridiculously short skirts. BORING. Considering that she's supposed to be the main character in which the story hinges on, this is intolerable.
There were other characters, but in reality NONE of them were interesting enough to make them memorable, hence I already forgot about them.
Honestly I'm baffled by the reviews I've seen for this series. It's dull, boring, and it doesn't look good. I only see this as being enjoyable by all those people who love Dragonball, Pokemon, and other worthless anime series of the same like. If you want to see a GOOD anime series watch FullMetal Alchemist, FullMetal Alchemist Brotherhood (which is closer to the Manga, but really just read the Manga), Full Metal Panic, Chrono Crusade, Mai Hime, Scrapped Princess, or Witch Hunter Robin and leave this crap in the garbage where it belongs.
