5.0 out of 5 stars
Phenomenal, March 22 2009
This is hands down the greatest anime I have ever watched. A very gripping and compelling story, with characters that you can really root for or despise appropriately. It is very shakespearan and over the top at times, but at other times very real and quite effective playing on base human emotions. To get the most out of this anime I recommend listening to it with Japanese audio and english subtitles. 5/5 star anime.
I wish someone would step out and pick this anime back up, not unlike Hajime No Ippo was recently started back up; but it seems doubtful as this series obviously does not have the marketing potential and the 1,000 of little goodies and merchandise spin-offs that are possible with franchises like Naruto or Pokemon. Mature themed animes seem to be a dying breed... sadly.
