Art & Animation: B
Voice Acting: Original Japanese -- A- / English -- B
Objectionable Content: Blood, profanity, fan service
Other: I've only just started watching this series and haven't read the manga. So far, the anime is an enjoyable ride.
The series got a reboot in 2011, but all the heart was taken out so that it could be compressed.
Overall Score: B+
