My very first review so please forgive any mistakes in English.
So I started watching anime 1 year ago and this anime was one of the anime that I watched in the beginning.It inspired me so much to watch many diverse variety of anime.It just overwhelmed me.No matter how much praise I did was not enough.
I gave it 4 because I hear a lot that the story was very confusing.Believe me, as a noob I was not confused a bit by story.The mystery is good.There actually isn't much about story and I won't give any spoiler but still it was some major piece of work for me as being a starter.
Now this is what distinguishes this anime from many of it's kind(I would rather say that it is only one of it's kind).I still remember most of it's soundtracks and the opening as it always sent chills down my spine.Every background music played was just too good for me to describe(Saying as a person who never gave a shit about music.)
The reason I gave 3.5 to such a great anime is that character development was non to minimum.I was pretty curious about their backgrounds.I didn't even know who the main characters were halfway through the anime.So I would say rather than story, characters were a bit confusing to me.
This anime really stands out a lot in animation.Graphics were eye piercing(specially if you watch it in HD).Based on animation and only animation this anime has become one of my all time favorites.They were totally amazing.
Others: 5/5 This anime has brilliant action and it doesn't loose it's beauty in action scenes unlike Naruto.This anime doesn't has many genre tags but it does a brilliant job in giving us what this anime and the creator of this anime has to offer.It will also give you some emotions.
So simply saying this anime was Amazing but like all other anime it still got some shortcomings as explained above.The Movie "K:Missing Kings" just came out and it starts from where the the anime ends and some of you were not aware of this until recently that SEASON 2 IS COMING OUT!!!!!!SO don't forget to watch it.Overall this anime is not disappointing even a bit as some people describe it.
As mentioned above this is my very first review so please overlook any mistake both in description of the anime and my English as I am a foreign.
PROS: Anime has good fight scenes, and good animation.
CONS: Too short. Not much is explained. Monotone dub voices (Japanese voice actors get into character way better). Didn't get to see 3 kings. Powers weren't explained, nor the universe in which this took place. Minor characters are indifferent to seeing giant swords in the sky.
CONCLUSION: Great way to spend some time, but don't expect to feel anything for the main characters.
It took only five seconds to make me fall in love with this anime. Basicly every single thing is amazing about this anime. At first it's super confusing and you probably wont understand this anime till you finish watching it a few times, even after gaining some understanding of it i still think i haven't figured it all out. It's a complex story but a super amazing story. It just has several elements and genres combine into one good story. SUch as Moe!
The SoundTracks(Osts) is beautiful. 5/5. It just hits you deep.
Animation... Don't even get me started. Do you even realize how much amazing the animation is!?
I've never seen Animation like this before... Gohands the creators, have their own unique and 3D style that's different then typical anime you have probably seen. Everything GoHands does is in a high new level. That's why I'll always praise this anime highly.
Characters 5/5. Just wow that character design.. It's pretty Brilliant. Not just that but their personalities too. For example Neko.. Wow pure genius to bring a catgirl into the scene of this kind of story.
Fanservice: Eh there's not really fanservice, at the most 2 panty shots but you can barely see them. I'm kinda relief since fan service and ecchiness would take the flavor off the story so that's good.
At first you may think this is Yaoi or something because the main character and Kuro blush towards each other often but you must remember that Shiro has never had any male friends so he finds it embarrassing. Not just that the main character is obviously deeply connected with his classmate Kukuriki who acts like a childhood friend or Neko. I can go on and on why this Anime is amazing but not enough room.
Just watch this! Basically the main character loses his memories and is implanted fake memories to live in school, being a king and not having any clan members he meets a rare specie(Neko) and adopts it as his first clansmen. i want to put more and more on just how great this story is but you have to watch..
Once you start to watch it you will be instantly hooked. The characters will make you feel strong emotions throughout the whole anime and the animation is beautiful. The story has a lot of plot twists and it is very interesting.
If you are unsure whether to watch it then give it a try you'll love it trust me?????????????????????????????????
This anime is just spectacular. From the very first episode this anime draws you in and just wants to make you want to watch more of it. The creator the an excellent job in developing the plot and character development. What really makes me like this anime is the music they use through out the entire anime it just magnifies the greatness of the anime, and I don't normally care about the sound tracks in anime, but this one is amazing. This anime will most definitely be going in my top 30 of all time favorite anime. Cant wait for season 2 to comes out.
