After hearing that the manga is a really good one this show is a big disappointment since it makes almost nothing right.
I honestly didnt like any of the characters. The only one I liked was Youko because she walked her own way despite her s****y husband saying no. But that was only until she tried to save him in ep 12, after this it was over. Her diying did only worsen it.
Kouga is a real scumbag who I really wanted to see jailed at the end and honestly I dont know why he hasnt gotten in jail after openly killing his father and mother which was seen live all over tv.
Jin, well to me he is no character he is a little chess piece and nothing else. Sure he was intended to be this way but trying to make him look different and failing doing that really was a joke.
The rest of the cast was forgettable, especially Kougas sister who did nothing than cry and scream the whole show.
Animationwise I cant say that Ive seen a lot of worse stuff. The characters often looked deformed, sometimes even so much that you have to ask yourself how they can even live with a body- and a headshape like that. Not to mention that the quality of the actionscenes was horrible.
Plotwise it was a disaster. It went timewise anywhere, no explanations, lots of stupid stuff happening and mostly completely without any sense. Just trying to get into the plot makes the head hurt so bad is it.
I actually flew over the manga a bit and luckily it seems that the anime was completely different. For example in the manga Kouga looks like hes twelve while everything happened and not eighteen like in the anime. And even the timeline is completely different and the whole story about Hanako seems to be anime original too. Good for the people reading it because, honestly, if the anime was faithful I couldnt possibly understand how it could be a hit.
3/10 from me and defenitely one of the worst shows I ever watched.
