Amazing, one of my fav anime's of all time
25 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've seen a lot of anime in my day. I have to say this is one of my favorites. I've just recently finished the whole series. From beginning to end its all drawn beautiful and the music is amazing. I won't get into detail about any plot seeing as others have. But the character development in this series is exceptional. It really does make you start to care for the characters. I have only felt that way with two other animes(fma, Rurouni kenshin).

Top notch show, great plot whole way through the series. Also biggest thing unlike other shows nowadays, there are no filler episodes! Well done on an amazing series.
