I (like im sure others) thought this was supposed to be a great series. When I started it I thought "Ok its a rough start, it will get better." That was the first mistake I made and soon after realized it was actually the second mistake since the first was putting it in the DVD player in the first place. The whole theme of the Anime is ridiculous which I can sometimes stomach if the animation is great. In the case of this series though the animation is very weak mixed with a plot and theme that is just useless. Its main theme is to believe in yourself, stick by those you love, and love everyone....great, its been done before and way better. The plot is save the magical universe...i say why bother! The animation is awful....Its shaky in places and nonexistent in some time laps scenes. They use cheap computer animation when they got lazy that would shame any animator. Towards the end of the series you almost loose track of what is going on since the main characters start wavering between what they are supposed to be doing. Scenes start to loose all since of objective and true meaning. The characters just seem to be screaming about nothing or standing up for a belief/value that they just suddenly decided they had to start screaming about. If your like me and can not stop a show or movie in the middle of something...then don not start this show...it will only leave you with a sour taste in your mouth.
