Yawn. This age old rhetoric finds little new ground here in what I thought would be a fascinating tale of a princess nobody wants. Instead I find that the themes and subject matter are simple one dimensional rehashings of a tale as old as time: Nobody likes religion, therefore it must be inherently bad.
While the Anime itself is pretty well done (hence my rating of 2, rather than 1) and at times is quite fascinating to look at, sadly that is the only thing that stands out in this yawn-fest of simplistic predictable characters and story lines. By the time I had gotten to the 3rd episode I could already tell you who was going to be the main protagonist for each episode... and from that point forward I never missed a single one. There are no surprises here.
If you are looking for fascinating sci-fi.... turn to Blue Gender, Full Metal Alchemist, Armitage (Poly or Dual), or any other number of far better Japanese anime. If you're just looking to waste time and be bored... well... here's one you'll not regret on that front.
BTW: Obviously those who did the subtitles even got bored --- they couldn't get "Cis" (or Cz) name right ONE SINGLE TIME when she was in child form. Kept calling her "Cin"... which doesn't even sound close to what was being said.
Trust me... this is one to take a pass on... I sure wish I hadn't spent the money on it.
