11eyes is a fantasy action anime with minimal ecchi elements, in the usual done-to-death highschool setting. I hate ecchi, so I prepared myself with some booze expecting the worst. Despite my low expectations, this anime actually appeared to have a proper plot and a therefore reason to watch it. The start is slow and lacking but it picks up, so don't drop it early. Give this a try if you like this genre/type of story and don't mind a little ecchi. And even if you don't, then at least try the soundtrack which is the best bit. It really isn't half bad. Animation When I started to watch this anime I thought it was made within the last few years, the animation quality is actually pretty good. The style isn't too unique, but one of the characters reminded me of a character from my favourite anime of all time. Very smooth and effective ation sequences. It seems to have a bit of a magic/horror style and reminded me of Shakugan no Shana at times. That's gotta be a good thing. This anime is tagged as ecchi and I'll be honest, I barely noticed much in the first half, besides a lot of tasteless unnecessary panty shots from Yuka. I swear that girl has a rip in the back of her skirt. The anime itself doesn't seem to have much of actual ecchi theme, though there has been the cliche 'girl groping other girls,' busty nurse and misunderstandings. No token beach or hot spring scenes either. A pleasant reduction in ecchi (besides those panty shots) and that's coming from someone who despises ecchi and hates out-of-context fanservice. Do keep in mind that I wasn't paying too much attention, the first half due to my inebriation however. I might have missed something like a bath scene or some potential bullshit, but there was barely any in the second half. The blood/gore is fine too, though nothing too extreme. May be a bad thing, but it could just be the look they were going for with this anime. Sound Definintely the best bit of 11eyes. I usually skip the intro/outro sequences after the first time, due to time constraints. But this time I really wanted to watch them due to the awesome music. Heck I ended up getting the soundtrack for this anime. This anime also utilises background music well and has great sound design. Sometimes there were scenes with creepy music, to suit the madness and other times there was beautiful instrumental for serious scenes. If the anime was a tad different, it could have been a horror anime, I swear. So, not being reliant on one genre of music and optimising the use of soundtrack is where this anime shines and it does it better than other anime that I've enjoyed more. This anime is only available in Japanese and the voice acting isn't too bad. So subtitles are required, since I assume we don't speak Japanese. Characters The main character is Kakeru Satsuki, of course a high school student and a bit of a badass. Especially with his eyepatch covering his heterochromic yellow eye, he appears more of a badass than the designated badass character. When he was younger, his younger sister was killed by some sort of demon. He appears to be romantically involved with Yuka Minase, who is his childhood friend. I should mention that this anime has the trope of having no parents or relative adult characters. He has a hidden power that he has not yet awakened and he wants to train and try his best to use his power to defeat the villianous demons who threaten him and his friends. Revenge could be a hidden motive. He also seems to be a tad unaware of how clingy Yuka is. Maybe needed a bit more development to define his personality better. Yuka Minase is Kakeru's childhood friend and is infatuated with him. She is an orphan, taken in and raised by the non-existent but mentioned Minase parents. This girl is very clingy and obsessive over Kakeru, it appears she wants his dick so damn bad. I've heard complaints about this character and I'm not sure why. Maybe it was something I wasn't paying attention to in the first half or the thing that happens at the start of episode 11? Occasionally she peeks in on him, leading to misunderstandings over certain things. She is very worried that Kakeru would leave her. This character is also almost the sole source of ecchi in this anime, it really seems as if her skirt is ripped at the back or something. She is often oblivious to dangers due to her concern with everything Kakeru. She appears to dislike Minase as she is worried that she might steal Kakeru. Misuzu Kusakabe is a swordfighter magic-user who is the latest in the line of the Kusakabe family. She has become solitary, due to extreme dislike from the other Kusakabe's for owning all of 4 legendary swords held by the family, having defeated and killed her own father for the last one and using the forbidden magic. She admires a magic-user that left 70 years ago, who was similarly hated. Similar to Kakeru, she has a concern for to righteousness. She also holds certain feelings... watch it to find out. At the moment, I can't be bothered to talk about the less important characters. There is the girl/witch trapped in the crystal. The slutty nurse who appears to have a relationship with a student but turns out to be the guys adopted mother. Story The story is very much there and is fleshed out relatively well, with twists turns and unexpected developments too. By the way, episode 11 and 12 can be considered as two different endings, otherwise the story progression is bullshit. Behind it all, it is actually a romance story, with all sorts going on. Things actually happen and the story is relatively unpredictable. It is quite unique, with the exception of one other anime which is quite similar. There is an alternate reality called the Crimson Night in the city where the main characters live. Within this realm is a girl trapped in a crystal, the black knights who demonic beings that guard her and prevent her from being freed and other monsters. To free this prisoner and to protect the real world is the goal of the protagonists. It feels a bit complex and complicated at times. Overall the story starts off a bit slow, though that could just be the booze and as good as it is, it doesn't stand out enough and it isn't absolutely amazing. The ending is debatable and kinda disregards all of the plot events in a way. There isn't much to read into, so no social commentary/subtext here. Conclusion So, it ain't so bad after all. If you like the whole action/demons/magic idea, especially one where the story is great and things actually happen. I was getting very bored and distracted during the first half, though that was likely due to my drinking. If you hate ecchi like me, try this out since the ecchi is both frontloaded and rather minimal, so you should be fine with the overall anime. Not bad, not bad at all. I was wrong to get drunk for this one. Family-friendliness Rating: 4/5 The panty shots are a tad extreme and there's a bit where she's wearing only kinky lingerie (lower is better) Overall Rating: 7/10

OK I will openly admit. I absolutly hate this anime. There was not one moment where I enjoyed it. Why? Well let's see   Well the story is about a half-blind guy called Kakeru who is in school with his childhood friend Yuka having their average school day. That is until they get out of school and they somehow get teleported to the "red night" where the city becomes deserted and monsters are commanded to kill anyone they find. In this world they are intoduced to our next main character Misuzu who is a member of the Kusakabe clan, a clan that has people with the ability to magicly pull out 5 swords out of thin air. They later find a princess trapped in... icy glass crystal cage? Sorry either they didn't explain or I was paying zero attention. And so Kakeru promises that he will protect Yuka and stop the crazy madness of the red night. Overall the story is bad from the word go and it later gets worse after each episode by adding more characters I couldn't care less about and a love triangle that's there to be edgy.   Ok I will admit the animation is alright. The enviroments look alright although it looks a bit like the city whenever there's a fight in Shakugan no Shana. And I suposse the charaters are... decently animated.   The sound is just plain awful. The voice acting is terrible. I coldn't stand any of the characters and they were annyoing. The music was bland. It's not ear-rape bad but it's still bad. To be honest none of the songs were memorable. I forgot the songs as soon as they ended   The characters are the worst thing about this anime. There were literary zero characters I could care for. Yuka is probably the first character I absolutly hated that you were supposed to care for. If you don't hate her at first you will hate her later. Tadashi, the comic relief is not funny. He was annoying. The rest were just characters I didn't care for   As you can tell I didn't have a good time watching 11eyes. I couldn't stand any of the characters, the story was meh and the sound was bland. Avoid the anime at all costs.

11 eyes Just to be fair, this isn't the worst anime I've seen yet. He had at least a subtle approach, even if the author had no idea what to do with it. If you were to use the plot again in a better story, you could get a lot more out of it. Unfortunately, this ended up being a generic speed run of a superpowered title. For those of you who are interested, the anime is slightly different from the manga. There are deviations in dialogues, the process at the end is almost completely different apart from the result. The anime is slightly better than the manga, but it is a lot longer. The ending in the manga was roused so remarkably that I just sat with my mouth open. The plot [3] The concept is interesting, the red night, the opponents, and the minimal twist at the end. It was pretty obvious, almost pressed in the face, that something was wrong. But it was there. Unfortunately, the pacing and the implementation were almost laughably bad. Characters [2] I'm not really down to earth yet, but here you will find some of the worst characters there are. One extremely clichéd stereo guy follows another and no attempt has even been made to give them a peculiarity. And their dialogues are actually what hurt me so much in the first place. Whoever wrote this didn't know how friends and people can make a conversion with one another. And the shy girls don't say UyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyUUuu. But the latter isn't fatal, probably a bad attempt to make the characters look kind of cute. Spoiler, it doesn't work.We have the Edgylord protagonist here, who has no depth whatsoever. The haughty protagonist as it is in the book. The hyperactive. The CHILDHOOD GIRL, who is a copy and paste of every childhood friend, I have the feeling, among other things, that she is the same childhood friend character and exists beyond reality, maybe she is omnipresent and only exists once and appears in every work? The cool guy is there, the kudere too and the big-breasted nurse who keeps making sexual jokes. The complete generic alphabet is present. The animations are fluctuating, but mostly average. I still liked the portrayal of the red night, there was something about it. Music, the best point in the anime. Both the intro and the Osts were of quality and could be so much better off in another anime. Conclusion It doesn't matter if you watch/read the anime or the manga, it's about the same torture. I'm just glad the anime was relatively short.
