Yeah…. i don’t really know where to start.
Um…. ok… so it’s about a boy named Eiri who can see a girl in these
glasses he acquired…. then he sees her and somehow makes a blood pact
and then he turns into a demon… and…. yeah that's about the time when i got lost…
but that's not really what the story is about…. it’s really about this
Arist Marchello who would paint the young Cossette… one day in a state
of madness he murders her and her entire family… her possessions witness
this and get mad and vow revenge on Marchello’s soul.
then again…. i’m not sure if that's what this show is about… hm…. okay i got this
This show is about being as artsy in 3 episodes as humanly possible.
yeah that pretty much sums it up.
so yeah if you hadn’t gathered yet…. i didn’t really like it…. now
it’s not bad… it’s just not something i enjoy… it reminds me a lot of
the story Lolita which creeps me out… when marchello is cornering
cossette and saying things like “why do you insist on getting older?”
yeah…. that’s horrifying… to many people i could see that being the
moment where people really enjoy the show… i just found it way too
which the anime is pretty decent i really hate that faux realism some
anime tries to accomplish… and the eyes just look so dead… and yeah
that’s kind of the point but just cause something is meant to be that
way doesn’t mean i have to like it. Also the whole show seems to be
drawn at a dutch angle or from angles where we can see up the characters
nose… i personally don’t like when those angles are used to a point
where you can notice how much they are being used…
also the story made no sense…. i can’t even begin to describe the
last episode… yeah tons of symbolism but i didn’t care enough and it all
just felt forced…
music was pretty interesting though.
i have known about this series for a long time thanks to the music,
my friend played it once in the car… and he did say i probably would
like the show… now i understand why…
but yeah it’s not Bad… it’s not bad at all… i just don’t like those kind of stories.
