Most underrated anime at this time.
11 September 2018 | by puneetsharma9See all my reviews

The series is totally awesome the starting look pathetic but tell me about it if you got power like controlling anyone then you don't like to use it for examination.

But because of doing wrong thing from long time the hero just lost his morals. And that's takes in the path that is like to say not human.

He join the team actually force to join and saving people like them and thing goes for better or worst a person which is cheater turn to good person by the influence and help of friend.

Story have enough secret that you don't even get it first time like some hint given before reveal secret that is very good interoperation for secret. It let you cry hard but have so much to heal it.

The story has something great that you can feel it, right now it is 7.6 that is most underrated anime in the IMDB. I usually don't like dark but too the some extend it is ok. And recommended as if anime is dark but ending is complete with sense of saving or achievement that it look better doesn't it.
