A tonal mess...
3 March 2015 | by MarkyMarkusSee all my reviews

This anime doesn't know what it is. It takes the most cliché aspects of a lighthearted shonen and a gore fest and mashes them together in a way that feels awkward.

Pros: great OPs -Esdeath - No plot armor. its not a matter of if a character will die, but when.

Cons: -the show constantly goes from super serious death to lousy comedy in mere seconds making the drama feel cheap. -The ending....The last 6 episodes... Its really rushed, full of plot holes, and just a clumsy mess. -Characters are sometimes offered no time to develop and are simply killed for the sake of drama.

I can't really recommend this show because no matter what you are looking for, there is an anime that does it better, which isn't to say this show really does anything good. If you want a dark battle anime with great animation, just watch Fate/Zero. You want a shonen that can be silly and over the top while still having drama? Watch Gurren Lagann. Unless you really want to see it, I recommend you just skip it.
