If you love Inuyasha, or Full Metal Alchemist, you'll enjoy this
The storyline features a man who finds himself with two problems, one of which is amnesia, the other, is that he has a mask permanently fixed to his face.
Upon awakening in a strangers house Haruoko finds himself unable to remember who he is or how he got here. Both of which become the least of his worries when he finds that his face is covered by a mask which he cannot remove, As he is trying to answer these basic questions a strange old woman comes up the stairs to greet him, telling him that she has saved his life, and that he is welcome to stay in her home as long as he pleases, marking the beginning of Haruoko's new life. As he wanders the town, he learns that its strange-looking inhabitants have a unique connection to nature; hence, their tails and long, pointy ears. Now, on a mission to reconstruct his lost memory and solve the mystery of the mask, Hakuoro joins with the villagers to protect their town and way of life.
All in all this series is entertaining, however, it does seem to move extremely fast as far as story to episode is concerned, in just under ten episodes, the characters have found places within each others lives, as well as the destiny of the world. I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoyed the likes of Inuyasha, and Full Metal Alchemist.
The DVD set however, seems to end abruptly, It is unclear to me if this marks the end of the series, or just the end of the first set of DVDs. Little is known about any intentions to release a third volume.
