Katanagatari

I started off watching this anime the day it came out, I had my friend also watch it with me so we can talk about it each time it was released. The anime started off very slow with lots of talking however it is beautifully drawn. after 3 episodes my friend dropped it saying it was too slow paced for him and that he wants more, Yes the anime is very slow with lots of dialogue However, this is to build up to a even greater anime. The whole time you watch alot of fight scenes that look like they could have been better, your reading all the dialogue that you sometimes don't want to read but, there is one thing that you will forget which would make you understand why it starts off slow and that reason is said in the ending. This anime overall is great its a well developed story, great artwork, very well thought up characters and voice actors were awesome all thought that princess's voice kind of bothered me but it fit her. All in all if you pick up this anime DO NOT DROP IT! you will not be dissappointed.

for those of you who want to know why i said  "there is one thing that you will forget which would make you understand why it starts off slow" read below.

***SPOILER ALERT!!!!!*** 


















Togame tells him that he is not allowed to break the swords or to let himself get hurt thus making it harder for him to fight because he has to be overcautious in the ending they go about proving this when he has to fight against all the swords, the first one he had to fight was one that he supposedly couldn't break, its not that he couldn't break it the first time around its that he was told not to. so yes because of this the anime seems slow because the battle scenes were not battle scenes they were more of scenes of him trying to find a way to find without breaking the swords or letting himself get hurt.

***END OF SPOILER***

9/10 story

@Vlykarye: Well i don't see how the ending was umm... "fail" as you put it, I think it made sense but maybe it's just not your cup of tea. I don't know I really enjoyed it, the fact that the ending basically shows what he could have and SHOULD HAVE done in the first place I think was the greatest thing. I was saddened by the fact that Togame died, but as I've been told by others "that was expected it was to be either him or her". all though with you saying the ending is fail with out a decent explanation as to why you feel that way doesn't help anyone that reads the review comments :(, ohwells whatever I guess.

I disagree. It was an ok anime. But the ending was fail. Which, in a way, makes it all fail. At least you were right about the drawing at some parts.
