Now at first I was a bit skeptical anout the plot, where the god had reached the end of his life span and needs to elect a sucessor, it was quite strange to say the most, however, as the show moved on I kept gaining interest in it. Now as I said before, this story is not original (there are many great aspects/twists and turns that should keep an interest in it), it does take many ideas from several anime to kind of show the relationship of god and man...but the anime that does a perfect display of this is Ergo Proxy (by the way Ergo Proxy is an excellent anime I don't know why some people gave it bad reviews, but I will give that show 9/10, it is one of the best anime out there) however the way the story got at the end was magnificent, I was at the edge of my seat, because they tird all of the loose ends up and everything made sense. The anime had a great ending, everyone is happy, there was only one thing I wanted, Yuno and Ammano to be together at the end.
Dark and mysterious, that is the mood the animation tries to give and it does accomplish that but only to some extent. The actions scenes are good but not anything excellent, you can actually see that this style was taken from other anime. There are some usage of CG animation such as Deus and you could tell that it was not well animated. But, although it may sound like I am complaining, I did enjoy the animation, it is great
Very well done voice acting, the emotions flooded the characters. The problem here is the annoying first theme, the second one was good, the ending theme was ok. The OST used was very good too, no problems there.
One thing they tried to show was, the power of love, especially Yuno's love for Amano, the thing here is that this love seems forced not natural. In fact most of the love relationships in the anime seem forced such as the relationship between the cop and the ninth (that girl with the purple hair). I also liked the psycho nature of Yuno (again this was there to show how much she cared for Amano)
Despite its flaws this is a great anime, I did enjoy watching it and maybe some time in the future I will watch it back.
