  1. I’ve seen many anime series in my time and this is by far one of the best. It ranks up there with Twelve Kingdoms, Cowboy Bebop, Code Geass, Fullmetal Alchemist, Bleach and Deathnote. Highly recommend esp. if you like watching female warriors kick ass! The manga is still being written so read that if need your fix after completing the series.

  2. I watched this entire series on DVD via Netflix, and absolutely loved it. I held off on actually buying it, though, with the hopes that a blu-ray version would stroll along. And whattaya know, here it is. The animation quality on this series is already fantastic, and I can’t wait to see it in HD (though, as always, it’s questionable just how much cel animation can be enlivened by high definition).

    A couple of general notes about the series:

    1. It’s ultra-violent and not very hopeful, so otaku parents, be aware before you show your kids (though I will say it could be quite empowering for young girls).

    2. If you enjoy this, try Berserk. The story and characters are way different, but the dark medieval fantasy environment is the same (still need that on blu-ray, though…).

    3. Funimation, as always, does an excellent job with the english dub, but the original japanese is still superior.

    4. If you’ve finished watching all the anime episodes and found yourself loving it and wanting more, you need to start reading the manga series it’s based on, starting with volume 11. Why? The anime adapts the first 10-and-a-half volumes of the manga quite thoroughly. However, it features an alternate ending in the final episode that never happened in the manga. The second half of volume 11 picks up at that point. In fact, the series is still ongoing in Japan, so there’s quite a bit more story to go. Hopefully, it will all be adapted to anime, and turn out as well as this excellent collection.
