Very Fresh Anime
15 May 2015 | by karatekid1138See all my reviews

This is an excellent show and easily the best anime I've seen this year at the time of writing. The story is very well developed and deep, without making the mistake of taking itself too seriously. The main characters are immediately likable and you feel like you know them incredibly well after just 12 short episodes. Two of the best things about this show besides the story are the art style and music. The animation looks fantastic and each of the main characters seem to just sparkle against the darker background of a typical Japanese city. Meanwhile the music is really cool and has an indescribable flare to it. All of these things contribute to making this just a great show that you won't be able to stop watching once you start - I finished it in one day. And the best part is, Season 2 has been announced! Really looking forward to seeing more of Yato and friends.

The only complaints I have with this show are the disappointing romance and some of the action scenes. Their is some limited romance throughout the show that is hinted at but it never really develops in the first season. They could be setting it up for season 2, but don't expect too much romance in season 1. As far as action scenes, the fighting in this show is pretty great, but most of the phantoms Yato fights go down in one good hit. Things get a little more interesting when Yato fights with other gods, but the final fight of season 1 feels a little rushed and underwhelming. These are minor complaints and I'm sure some people will barely even notice them because the rest of the show just carries you along for such a great ride.

Overall, I really recommend this anime, especially if you've been having trouble finding a good show recently. Trust me, this is exactly what you need.
