listen...I know a lot is down on this anime. i personally love it. First off this anime steps into a darker place than "death". This anime is focused towards those with troubled childhoods, issues, wishes. all that emtional stuff. not only that but for once in an animes life its not so skin, smart, charming or perverted weirdo. I'm all for those guys but this guys different. Hes fat, has 0 self confidence and hes a nice guy! sure all those others are "nice guys" but this guy is...you know hes different. Anyway i love this anime for all it is, and i have never wanted any child to die in an anime this much before.
