So................ my question if you have seen it is if you like it or not. I love this anime and highly recommend it to those of you that have not had the pleasure of watching this.
yay! first I think!

Luvs it~ tongue.gif
I read the first manga a while ago, but can't remember what I thought of it.
It sounds cool, though, I should watch that one once I'm done with InuYasha. (167 eps... *shivers*)
I've read the manga but I haven't watched the anime yet...i hear from a few of my friends that it was really good.
