This is the first anime I've ever watched, if you don't count the countless Pokémon episodes that I caught on TV over a decade ago when I was trying to avoid homework after school, and I have to say: I'M IMPRESSED! :)
I absolutely adored the entire story, which I also found surprisingly deep. I mean, I didn't know *what* to expect, but I guess I was skewing towards something much more silly, and LOVELESS is anything *but* that. It's sad, but at the same time hilarious, almost poking fun at itself, but in a wonderfully *dark* way. The characters are all quite brilliant, the secondary ones so well-crafted that - in my opinion - they often steal the scene from Soubi and Ritsuka. My *only* problem is Soubi, who drove me half-crazy with his aggravating cageyness and with the way he kept going off on his own ... and then *getting hurt*, ahem ... and refusing even to let Ritsuka help him AFTERWARDS. Come on, dude: WTF?! But I sort of came to understand him a little more by the end, which is why I didn't end up dropping a star or two. I warmed up to him during the second-last episode, which almost had me rolling on the floor laughing FOR REALS.
I'd really like more episodes, though, because there are so many questions left unanswered. I want to know more about Seimei and any other Loveless and Ritsu and all the Zeros and what the fridge-tart happened at the end and ... BAH! I guess I should just read the manga, eh?
Anyway, this anime's cool, and it definitely has me wanting to check out some others.
