I heard a lot of good things about this one so I had high expectations but… I guess my expectations were too high that Nabari No Ou couldn’t meet them. Nevertheless, I enjoyed it.
One thing that just didn’t sit right with me was Kairoshuu’s leader’s death. Really now?
The dude was like the last boss and yet he went down so easily. It was something I didn’t expect. I figured he was just faking his injury or the damage wasn’t so bad and that he was waiting for a chance to strike back. I was wrong, he was heavily injured and immobilized; he was left there to die. It’s not that it pisses me off or anything but he seemed to gracefully and effortlessly dodge the attacks of everyone else except for Yoite’s. Now that I think about, maybe I’m too harsh. He may have trusted Yoite to not harm him or something like that.
The way the series opened up was nice, showing a scene that caught my attention but then lost my attention when it started to introduce Miharu being a typical shonen protagonist staring out the window. Yeah, I’ve had enough of those ‘staring out the window in school’ scenes.
The background music.. It didn’t really catch my attention nor did I remember hearing anything at all. But I really do like the opening and the second ending was pretty good.
It was somewhat humorous but everyone’s depressing pasts and whatnot made it hard for comedic acts to pass without feeling forced.
- The love between Hanabusa and Tobari is really cute. I didn’t expect it but it was nice.
- Koichi is immortal and at first, before the explanation of why he was immortal, I thought he was a vampire.
- Yoite and Miharu are so adorable together.
- Yukimi is pretty cool. x] but when he starts whining.. it gets annoying. >3>
- This series was so frustrating at times because the way the characters though would piss me off.
- I love Ichiki’s accent, it reminds me of Gin from Bleach.
I enjoyed this one, it was good.
