Let me start by saying this is one of the more refreshing titles to come out in a long time.
I'll save you the time of reading this review and just tell you right now, BUY THIS ANIME!
What? You're still reading this? Why haven't you pressed the "Add to Cart" button yet? Well, whatever the reason may be, this collection will not fail you.
Spread across 2 DVDs are all 12 episodes of this anime. Audio is in Japanese only with English subtitles, though there shouldn't be any concern regarding essays of text to read. The show moves moderately fast but subtitles are very easy to read and understand. For those who hate to read, this isn't bad at all, and it doesn't make for any less of a story!
Unfortunately there aren't any extras that come with the dvd release, something would have been nice but oh well.
Anyway, the story is very basic in its own unique sense. There are 7 pillars spread around Sakurashin town and they must be kept from blooming or else all hell will break loose. The Life Counseling Center, comprised of members Ao, Hime, Kotoha, Akina and Kyousuke, must stop the evil Enjin from doing so. Enjin has been causing all sorts of commotion around town and they have to find a way to defeat him without injuring their dear friend Gin, who has been taken over by the evil Enjin. What will happen to Sakurashin town? You'll have to find out!!
There are many flashy battles throughout the show, including machine guns, dragon spears, exorcism, katanas, and of course bare knuckle boxing!
The opening and ending songs are solid, and the music throughout the show reminds of Fooly Cooly, but don't hold it against me.
For those who have been reading the books, this show will completely destroy your sense of direction! This show was not meant to be linear with the books, this story should be taken differently.
Though i'm sure those who have been following the books will love how the characters come to life in the show.
I know I did!!
