Once upon a time, the studio behind Toradora. and Shakugan no Shana created a fable-minded story full of fairy tale tomfoolery. In this amusing rendition of the wolf and the hunter, Ryoko and her friends form Otogi Bank: a social club that helps classmates get out of grim situations. When a boy joins the group to prove his love to Ryoko, will she allow herself to have her own happily ever after?
I too have seen a lot of anime, since from the age of 10 and this series is by far one of the best i have seen for a while. As this is from the same people who created 'zero no tsukaima' (The Familiar zero) i am not surprised how good the divide is between the romance/ action and the plot, story, character development are steadily unfolded to us, as we progress through the series. But i was disappointed, as it was quite short, but that can only be a good thing, as i would like to think that they are working on the 2nd series.
The anime had moments of resemblance to other romance/action comedies, such as: The familiar zero, full metal panic and full metal alchemist. Every time i watched an episode, i wanted to learn more about ryoko mostly but also all the other characters too, especially ryoshi. I think a lot can be added to this anime, such as character and personality traits may change as the story develops, like ryoshi overcoming his weakness and fear, maybe he goes to train by himself like ryoko, he feels that he's a failure, which makes him do this. I just really want to see more, i watched the whole series in an evening and i couldn't stop myself from now watching it.
The anime is quirky, stylish and has a lot of good uses of humour and action, action looks cool in particular, almost like full metal alchemist or cowboy bebop. I hope more series are to be made, as i think so much can be done to the story and to the characters, i just hope they don't leave it un-answered and un-finished. I have seen many which have done this and you just leave disappointed, as many animes have so much potential.
So yeah overall, a awesome, cool new romance/action anime , which i would recommend everyone to see. I rarely comment on anime series, but i liked this so much that i thought i would, so that people will see it and spread the word, and hoping that the series will continue :)
