entertaining show that didn't quite reach its full potential
I liked this show. It started off with a bang, with plenty of action, humour, interesting characters and excellent animation. However, I feel it could have been so much better if it had been aimed at a more adult audience. The show is essentially about vigilantes killing bad guys, yet the level of violence is suitable for young teens. I prefer more serious stuff, and think this show would have been awesome if they'd kicked up the blood and violence factor haha...but that's just me.
The show mostly revolves around Ogami Rei and Sakurakoji Sakura. Ogami is a Code: Breaker, a guy with special powers who kills bad guys the law can't get to. Sakura is a popular girl at high school who witnesses Ogami killing a whole bunch of bad dudes and freaks out when she sees him at her school the next day. She makes it her mission to convince Ogami that even bad guys deserve to live and that killing is wrong no matter who is on the receiving end. It's pretty cool overall, but I just wish it wasn't so 'teeny'.
