Absolutely amazing
21 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have seen more than 100 anime series, this is among the very best of them, it is absolutely amazing how so strong emotions are expressed in such a suddle manner, I believe having this score currently is extremely unfair to this anime, thus I had to write my first comment ever on IMDb for a show.

Scripts are very well prepared, the graphics are amazing, music is one of the bests ever - this totally puts you into the mood for the emotional roller coaster effects of this anime. Note: It is not for children, should be rated at least pg-15. (no violence or sexual images-language but the topics examined are very delicate (child abuse) and would be tough to handle for younger kids). If you want to understand what I mean better start from episode 6, and get ready for a real shock+treat.

This is one of the perfect examples of Japanese anime art. In case you are newly interested in anime I would also recommend "code geass", "vampire knight", "death note", "gankutsuou", "full metal panic" (especially season 3), "hikaru no go", "Nodame Cantabille", "ano hana" and "skip beat".
