THIS AND PLANETES HAVE ROCKETED INTO MY TOP FIVE.
Good. Good. Good. Good! Good! GOOD!
I just finished the series after a bit of a marathon this evening.
I know a few of you didn’t make it through the first few episodes, but please give it another chance. At least see the first 14 episodes for the first storyline. Unlike many shows I’ve seen, the characters actually DEVELOP. It immediately throws you into the story without explaining much, and the first five episodes or so will leave you with a lot of questions, but stick with it! Everything happens for a good reason. There were a couple of things left hanging at the very end, but it only makes me hope for more.
You have no idea how good it makes me to see an actual strong female hero emerge out of an anime. It’s so rare and gratifying when it happens. I mean, not just someone who can kick ass, that’s a dime a dozen, but someone who actually confronts her fears and actually makes some serious decisions, despite not knowing where the outcome may lead.
