The Likes of this anime:

In my opinion I though this was a quite good anime, the overall story, the art/graphic work and the characters. The overall story flowed from one episode to the next and the character development slowly developed through each episode. I guess this is why I got stuck watching the all of the episodes because I wanted to know what would happen next. The character, well actually characters I liked the most was the Lucy/Nyu split personality. Lucy seemed to have a bit of a dark side until towards the end

[Spoiler Warning]

when her feelings towards Kota started to come out as he realized that she was the one who had killed his father and sister

[Spoiler Ended]

The Nyu side was kind of cute in her ways though she could really speak any basic words except “Nyu” but you can usually tell what she means or how she felt when she spoke “Nyu”.

[Spoiler Warning]

Towards the last couple of episode Nyu started to speak a few words to Kota or when she would call out Kota’s name

[Spoiler Ended]

The Dislikes of this anime:

To tell you the truth, I really don’t have any dislikes of this anime. It was a very enjoyable anime to watch and I would recommend this to anyone.

The only thing I really didn’t like was how the series had ended in episode 13 and I kind of wish there was a 2nd season or something. Even the OVA didn’t help with the ending, just a little addition to some of the episodes towards the end of the series.

My Rating: 99/100 (99 because of the way the series had ended.)

I will probably post a further review of this anime in the near future.

Thanks for reading
