In Alkana City, young boys are being kidnapped by an unknown masked man who works for the mysterious “Reverse Company.” The leader of the company, the evil lord Kurtz, with the help of tarot cards, is able to grant his minions with magic powers. In this city, Kotono is a member of the Kuroki Detective Agency – an agency which is hot on the trail of hunting down the kidnapper once and for all. On her way home one night, Kotono runs across an amnesiac boy names Juan who bestows upon her the power of judgment; and thus, her new life as the "Black Loli," protector of justice, begins! With the help of her newfound powers, Kotono and the other members of the Kuroki Detective Agency must fight the Reverse Company in order to protect Juan, and fend off evil that comes their way.
Saint October is a magical girl anime with comedy, action and magic (Obviously). The anime's form of magic comes from tarot cards, the card gets imbued into the users body and then allows them to use magic based off of that card. The story revolves around Kotono, who is given the Justice card. Which is basically the strongest card, it can actually cancel out other people's powers who have a tarot card by using the "Judgement" move. Kotono, along with her friends Natsuki and Misaki fight against a company called the "Reverse Company". The reverse company wants to kidnap a young boy named Jaun, who actually gave all three of the girls their powers; Jaun currently resides at Kotono's house. Aside from Jaun, they are also going after Kotono, as she is Justice. After school, the girls usually hang out at a detective agency. In which they solve mysteries, as well as figuring out what the Reverse Company is up to. In my opinion, the anime is a nice. It has cool characters, interesting enemies, good action scenes. It's a basic magical girl anime with nothing especially new except for the tarot card concept, but it's cute and it has it's funny moments too. It's also considered a parody anime, and at certain moments you can see why, like when they turn into their magical selves.... it's very strange. Overall, I like this anime. I don't see why so many people dislike it, but you should really try to see if you like it, rather than what everyone else thinks.
This will not be my usual style of review because this show exhausted me. After what I have seen of this mess I don’t want to think about it anymore, so this will be very short. This anime is the immature version of sailor moon there is no real detective work to speak of so don’t expect mystery. The characters seemed interesting enough but whoever voiced them obviously did not enjoy the job. The animation went through a drastic change in quality from really bad to acceptable. The only characters I enjoyed were the president of the evil organization and his assistant. I don’t recommend this to anyone older than 10 there is no blood, sexuality, etc. so it is safe for kids to watch. A family friendly tag should be added to this show. That’s all now I never have to think about this show again.
