Story

Similar action anime themes, in fact quite similar altogether. If you were to describe it to someone you could say quite a few anime names and they would get a good idea. It is not paced that well either. Parts with no relevance are given lots of time, points crucial to the story wizz past.  

Animation

The animation is very stylish. There is some great attention to detail. If Gurren Lagann did a Halloween special, that should give you a fair idea. It all looks very good. You nearly forget the other shortcomings, nearly. 

Sound

The opening sequences are very good, to the point of wanting to own them. The music through the rest of the show isn’t quite as good but still ok. The voices used are ok and bring life to the varied cast. 

Characters

There are a lot of them. They are all filled out well. Some are annoying but if you have watched any of the big action anime, Naruto or the like, you have come across worse.  

Overall

I really enjoyed this show. It was trying hard not to just look good, to have a little more substance. There is some. If you like this genre of anime then the overall score is probably lower than you would expect. If you are less of an action freak then the score is probably a little on the generous side. All in all - solid 

6/10 story
