unbareable...
18 July 2012 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

If you wanna suffer through days of brain-dead plot-holes obnoxiously annoying characters and writing that seems to hint arrogance in its-self, go on and watch this... the only good thing about this i can possibly find is the beautiful, but then again very typical anime art that reminds me a lot of D.Grey-man but lacks that series variety...

If you wanna watch a tired master-slave philosophy, clumsily disguised sadomasochism and hints to pedophilia have fun. There are amazing anime series and its hard to say, how they turn out in the end, since many series tend to change drastically over their course. But after now 12 episodes i can't take anymore of this nonsense. Weak and childish humor mixed with "blend-away-gore" which worsens this desperate attempt to make something that is dull and mainstream look somehow classy... It's a big mass of nobility pandering for little princesses, who replaced pink for black in hopes of sticking out of the crowd just the same way... Tim Burton á la stupid.
