I just watched all 13 episodes over the past week. I really liked some of the ideas, but overall I'm doubting I'd recommend it. While I'm formulating an opinion (with intent to blog) I wanted to put some feelers out there. See what people thought of the series, any comments about it that might enlighten me as to something I missed or whatever.
It seems pretty underground so it's been hard to find info on the show.

So for those that have seen it, what'd you think?

(by the way, it creeped me out every time I saw Vic Mignogna's name in the credits)

I made a blog about things.
(Disclaimer: blog may also contain stuff)
Please take a look. I'd appreciate any comments.

I really enjoyed it but it's a slow burner and at times treats fairly simple idea as something far more deep than it really is.
Technically it's rather average, the animation is nothing special and designs for anyone other than Kino are a bit basic but overall I really like it even at times it and it's more hardcore fandom can be a bit full of itself.

i enjoyed the anime. a little slow at first and i got confused here and there but overall, i liked it. had some nice life lessons as well but they could have gone a lil deeper.

the animation was basic but i think it fits for that sort of anime and the story was pretty interesting for me.
