Decent One!
23 April 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Watch this anime if you have time!

The story is about a group of students who are in a school called 'Shibushen' who try to maintain peace by suppress the evil activities of the witches and other evil beings.

The anime was quite thrilling to watch. There were twists and jokes, which seemed too childish to start with but you get attached to them and start to enjoy it. 'Patty' one of the characters makes you smile every-time she shows up. Each character is obsessed with one thing or another. What I liked about this anime is that they kept it short and tried to stick to the story. There are a couple of fillers(one or two) but I shouldn't really call them that.

To be more critical about the anime I would say its for teens. The animation is quite childish, The moon, the sun, the school to start with. There isn't much of detailing on every character which i think would give it a better feel. I loved the journey of 'Soul Eater', but the destination just disappointed me! Things happen all of a sudden at times, you take time to understand whats really going on.

Many a times you will be like 'What the hell just happened?' I would say watch it if you have nothing else to go for, it might just do the trick to entertain you!

I would give it 7.5/10
