Hmmm, I really don't know what to say. A great idea, a unique location and time period, interesting characters, pretty animation, a nice dialect, the story itslef as well is not half bad... this anime has all the ingredients to be really amazing. But somehow the outcome is very... unthrilling. I can't honestly say that I would recommend, which is a shame because it had the potential to be really good. Or maybe I just didn't understand the nuances within it. The poems (or more accurately their english translations) were quite nice though.
