A Unique Idea, betwixt some predictable tropes.
1 June 2018 | by TheNameBrandSee all my reviews

Season 1 (2011): When an action anime meets Christianity this happens. It's a really unique idea and it has some good scenes and sequences. I thought it could have done better at times and some parts were pretty predictable, but that's to be expected seeing as all the characters are high school age.

There's something for everyone to get out of it, however I wouldn't show it to someone who's never seen anime.
