I can only say positive things about this show, lets start with the animation. The animation is pretty much flawless( a few shortcuts for non important stuff). The artwork is a far stretch from the manga this show is based off ,but (in my opinion) better than the manga's artwork not nearly as many small problems. The voicing is done BEAUTIFULLY (this is referring to the dub) many great voices across the board. The sub on the other hand is not very suited for the American audience the Japanese voices just don't quite nail the characters like the English. The sound and music is very nice spreading it's genre wings from Jpop to rap to rock n roll and the best part... IT WORKS, usually when you diversify music in anime the result is not very good but this somehow pulls it off. The characters are interesting takes on the extremes of human emotions Pride,Perfection,Insanity,Love,Hatred,and Greed. The characters themselves really never go beyond their certain personalities which is sad. Another sad thing is that the ending also jumps back the that old shonen standby, friendship beats anything, something that never showed up in the series before. The story ,objectively speaking, is good not too deep not too shallow (for its audience). Subjectively speaking, its very well done. All in all if your looking for a good story with a surprising ending you will find it in this excellent 51 episode show. Full Review »

    Really awesome anime, in fact it is my favorite shonen anime, but sadly the anime is why too short and does not have a proper ending, Damn theReally awesome anime, in fact it is my favorite shonen anime, but sadly the anime is why too short and does not have a proper ending, Damn the anime needs to be remade after the manga ends, also after following the manga quite closely the anime after Ep 36-37 changes and becomes different compared to the manga.
