This is one of the best anime series out there. the only thing is, it may not be for everybody. PLEASE dont make the mistake of blowing this one off as a kiddie saturday morning cartoon-type-thing at first glance. This is most certainly NOT one for the little children!!^__^ The plot is full of symbolism, the story line is complex and can often touch onto twisted or morbid subjects, and the characters are deep. Dont be surprised if you need to take a couple of psychology courses to understand this series! Anyway, This is a GREAT series, personally, one of the top animes out there, in my opinion!!WAAAAAI!!!! MIKI KAORU RULES!!!!
