a series for the seiyuu connoisseur
25 September 2005 | by (Springfield, MO, USA) – See all my reviews

an assassin story! and you thought those days of Japanese film-making were over...well, Takehito-sama brought them back, just for us. very dark and violent, though not quite as gratuitous as parts of the manga. great soundtrack albums, too, because Weiss is a great vocal group (but don't expect much from the Schwarz songs...).

okay, it's true that, even for the time it was released, the animation of Weiss Kreuz wasn't exactly up to snuff. and it's true that a good deal of the angst is so contrived and plot-device-induced that it feels like it belongs in a yaoi manga.

BUT! it's also true that the cast includes Seki Tomokazu, Koyasu Takehito, Yuuki Hiro, and Midorikawa Hikaru.

it's angsty, the characters are involving, and listening to it is like bathing in chocolate. old-school enjoyment, pure and simple. <3 8/10 stars
