Gothic Soujo, 26 February 2011
Author: ArtemisAngelx from Russia

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

I find this anime excellent, though opinions may differ. Matsuri Hino's characters truly enhance this story and make it beautiful. "For one to succeed in writing, an author must love all his characters." Hino gives enough of her attention to every character, preparing tactful subplots so that behind every action lies a sophisticated meaning. She thus creates a sui generis individual out of all of them successfully that they take permanent residence in your hearts. The story has a Gothic base of vampires, allowing a large canvas Hino richly colours with imagination. It's a highly addictive plot line overflowing with bittersweet moments that make you faintly smile as you wage war against your tears.
