What I really admire about this anime is how well it captures the original feel of the manga.
The music in it - all that French - makes it mysterious and romantic, but lethargic at the same time. The opening and ending songs are both catchy, romantic and somewhat sad - perfect for this story.
The colors are dull, making the whole series seem like a dreamland - just like it should be.
There isn't too much emphasis on the battles; the plot captures more of the emotional and psychological aspects, which is the main virtue of this story in my opinion. I love it how twelve-year-old Ritsuka, haunted by his beloved brother's death, schizophrenia and abuse by his mother, is a child who would do anything to hear the words "I love you", and while he hardly trusts anyone and pegs all the world dishonest, inside WANTS to have someone he can trust to say those three words honestly. (Since I have written a longer review on this in my review of Loveless, the manga, I am not going to dwell on the plot any further)
The characterizations are good, and the voice actors are chosen well.
All in all, I deducted half a point because the twelve episodes and the abrupt, open ending doesn't make me feel like I am satisfied - I definitely want more!
Watched first episode and did not know it would go into boyxboy. Dropped after first episode. NO THANK YOU!
This anime was very sweet but I wish there was a little more boyxboy.Overall it was great,the characters were funny,the romance was nice,and I liked it.
There is one, perfect line to discribe this show: Brilliant but hard to understand.
I love this show! Its awesome!
Very interesting story. You may find your self confused, and if you do you will be to the end. That doesn't mean you won't enjoy it as such! In fact, it makes the story just the tiniest bit more fun to watch
Animation & Sound
The whole show is brilliantly created. Sound is great, and the animation is beautiful!
Awesome characters! They are all individgual in looks, personalities and voice! Unlike many animes, where you seem to have someone with a clone who wears glasses or something.
Overall, it's an awesome show! Boy or girl, this show will become addictive and keep you entertained for a long time!
