I dont enjoy when they kill off a character so early in the story, but this one it was needed to develop the main character and fordge the story to continue into the main plot.
i have noticed how the main chara is a little of an air head which is sad considering that his kind of powers need intutition and mind contorl not brute force.
As i watched episode by episode i seem to find miself in a love and hate relationship w the younger brother one moment he seems to show unconditional love for his aniki and then there's this hate consuming him over the surface, other times it shows envy over the love that they shared on their "father" chara.
it is something i will continue to watch and see the development of the characters, it seems a little naive on some parts, the ecchi parts and panty shots are to a minimum which i appriciate and they are actual battles which i enjoy the most.
i recomend this anime if your getting out of naruto, bleach and Reborn just for the fact that the animation is pleasing to the eye, the characters are interesting and not over done like now a days anime tend to be.
