Well another good manga has been turned into an anime. i just saw ep 1 up by Eclipse in both xvid and h.264.

will update this later with my thoughts on the first ep. i've already read what's out in the english manga so far so this will be a scrutinization of how they did on things.

I like it, I don't know why but strong/silence/calculated female characters always appeal to me. Going by the first episode, this show is made of win. For some reason I find the constant clanking of her metal boots extreemly cool.

Yup.
Seemingly cold, strong women are WIN!

Never read the manga, but heard it's good... the premise seems interesting after ep.1.
The art so far is so-so, not too bad. It's hard to judge so early on, but I DO like chara designs and seiyuu choice.
For those who didn't read manga - gore warning. Like, chopped off heads and blood gushing, disemboweled humans, etc. Yum!!

I liked the first episode. It felt closer to Beserk than anything I've watched in a while . I do have a logistical question for a first person watcher (aka as aired on TV). Did it appear that some scenes were so dark that the detail was lost, or is it just that the detail I was expecting isn't there?

Yes, I've heard this going around, it was too dark.

yeah, i don't know if that had to do with the encode or the series its self is actually that dark. it could be something similar to the fog of censoring that the japanese use a lot.

the boots really do sound cool. it's also kind of nice with the contrast of raki being loud and in your facel; while he's a little whinny it really isn't that bad. then you have clare being the silent killer that she is with a big sword and cool metal greaves that make a nice sound when she walks :p.

Looks like it's gonna be pretty good, though I'm not sure whether Raki's presence is good for the contrast or bad for the mood. Ah well, I imagine there's good reason. Agreed on the boots, I also liked the random bagpipe track, that's a nice touch. The ending is pretty good as well.

Looks very promising. Not a fan of gore-horror in general because I think it's so difficult to pull off well without repeating what others have done or sink into pure cliche. But this anime might actually be a 7/10 if it continues like this. Maybe an 8 if it throws in more surprises/originality. I liked both episodes 1 and 2, thought they carried a great level of emotional impact. On the other hand I'm worried about how far one can take the 'journeying' mechanism before it becomes repetitive.
