Love it!
26 April 2018 | by See all my reviews

In my opinion,one of the greatest anime's ever. The end of the second season made me cry, although the beginning of the third isn't the best so far. This anime has ideals like what it is to be human, battling your inner demons, etc. I highly recommend it, although it does have intense actions and gore. so it should not be viewed by people ages 13 and under.
