For this week, since I’m lazy and don’t have the time I’m reviewing a Shoujo anime, although it’s classified as Shoujo I honestly didn’t know that until after I finished watching the entire season. Go figure right? Anyways onto the review!
Plot Synopsis: Isana Yashiro (or just Shiro) has lived a relatively ordinary, simple life. He lives in the technologically-advanced Shizume City and attends Ashinaka High School, a notable high school that is located on an island just outside the areas. Yashiro is friendly with everyone. Nothing ever seems wrong about him, except perhaps his habit of forgetting where his school-issued PDA is. However, nothing normal has been happening since the recent murder of Tatara Totsuka, prominent member of the infamous HOMRA. No one knows who exactly killed him but the man responsible bears an uncanny, identical appearance to Yashiro. Seeking vengeance, the Red Clansmen of HOMRA set out to get Yashiro and kill him. Everyone suspects that Yashiro is the murderer.
Plot: Very good, I was disappointed in the ending until I learned that a movie will be finishing the story and it should be out in Japan by this summer. I can’t say much more about it without spoiling everything, but it gets pretty epic at the end.
Characters: I enjoy the character of Kuro the most, because he goes through the most growth over the series. Also cause he’s a bad ass swordsman with long hair.
Art: The thing that got me watching this anime in the first place was the art, man is it beautiful!
Music: The opening theme was pretty good, although the ending theme wasn’t that memorable for me. The soundtrack also was pretty good, with just enough set up to the epic moments and that tranquil silence for when shit hits the fan.
Overall: If you like action and mystery, or Bishonen in your anime, you should watch this series.
For those who like: Action, Mystery, Murder and Mayhem, Bishonen everywhere.
Not for those who don’t like: Any of the above, or an ending that requires a movie.
