This is one of my favorite series
4 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love this series! It was the first anime I bought years ago. The story line may be a bit predictable but, hey, that's shojo anime for you. I think all the characters are well rounded and have real feelings behind them, you just have to wait, sometimes, to find out what those feelings are. Also, I like the fact that the story takes place in several different settings, such as a country based on ancient China as well as in modern day Tokyo. I feel that the characters develop well going to the different places. I would definitely recommend this series to anyone who likes anime, especially anyone who likes "Ceres: Celestial Legend" which is buy the same author. And don't forget to watch the multitude of OVAs that come after the series, for the most part, they finish up the storyline.
