Entertaining Action Anime But Don't Expect Many Of Your Questions To Be Fully Answered 3 July 2014
By Rich(アニメとゲームが優先!!) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
The series is entertaining and if you've seen any of the previous series like Black Butler,Naruto,Fairy Tail or Guilty Crown you'll definitely feel a sense of deja vu with this series. The series focuses on Gareki a young talented burglar who during a job inadvertently rescues a young and naive Nai who Gareki first sees as a way to help with his future job but then becomes Nai's protector and gruff friend. Later the two become entangled with an elite special group called Circus and their long secret war with the group Kafka over dark projects that Gareki and Nai had stumbled upon. The series overall is entertaining but since it's based on a manga series obviously there's no finale in this series and many questions about Gareki and Nai's past are left open for the most part.

The animation and soundtrack are great with no problems with audio or clarity. The voice cast for the Japanese subbed did as expected a great job and the English dubbed cast picked from Funimation did a great job voicing their character roles too.
The set like most of Funimations sets have two standard dvd's discs and two blu-ray discs. Somewhat pricey I like with a previous purchase bought this set on Right Stuf for a more reasonable price. The set is a good addition for any anime fan and while the more character related questions won't be fully answered the series doesn't leave you frustrated with it's ending either.

I really have noticed that anime like this don't seem to flood the market 7 July 2014

Just purchased Karneval: Complete Series Limited Edition. Having over the years kept up with the ongoing trends of anime. I really have noticed that anime like this don't seem to flood the market. Karneval certainly is geared more after closer introspection for the female audience especially because of all the cute anime guys and anime girls pretty much everywhere. It's not to say it is not for guys too but it seems from MyAnimeList and other anime fan communities guys dislike it for the obvious fanservice geared toward the female audience. I'm not sure this is too off the mark but if you are open-minded then you can also enjoy this. I still like Karneval perhaps for this aspect because it is going for the female anime fan audience in mind in a world where most anime just seem to be geared for the male anime fan in mind.

That said Karneval has a very interesting unique Fantasy premise. It delivers this surreal and magical fun feeling. The two main guy characters are Nai and Gareki. Nai is really cute and part of the reason decided to get Karneval: Complete Series Limited Edition was the voice acting for Nai was so adorable. Thanks in part owed to Hiro Shimono. Gareki also has a really noticeable voice actor who is Hiroshi Kamiya. His voicing here is at play as a mixture of his two voice types: serious and funny.

Now with concern to the English dub to this series, well, truthfully it took time to get into the series in English since had seen the subtitled online version back in Spring 2013. It sounds different entirely and I am not sure feel Grey Ayres is the right one for Gareki. Although after a while of hearing grew accustomed to it. Sean Michael Teague voicing Nai was actually pretty ok. Perhaps the voice actors that stood out and gave some of the better charming performances were Ian Sinclair as Hirato, J. Michael Tatum voicing Tsukitachi, and Vic Mignogna as Karoku. In the end, though for Karneval glad it contains both subtitled and a dubbed version.

The animation as many anime fans have pointed out has very high production values accredited to Manglobe (Deadman Wonderland, Ergo Proxy).

FUNIMATION Entertainment

Discover the dark side of the big top in Karneval--a kaleidoscopic visual parade through a twisted fantasy landscape.

Circus is a super-powered security force of entertainers who keep villains off the streets by serving up justice with a side of razzle-dazzle. Despite their best efforts, a sinister organization named Kafka is gaining power throughout the world using grotesque monsters to carry out their plots. When Circus saves a mysterious boy from Kafka's grasp, the kid gets swept up in the crime-fighting spectacle--but why was Kafka after him in the first place? From the studio that brought you Michiko & Hatchin and Deadman Wonderland comes one demented freak show.

It basically sums up the series. Karneval has fighting sequences that from fan input seems to be rated highly. The cuteness aspect in the series though is very much the focus. Still there are instances where things aren't serious and just hilarious but it eventually does get serious. This series was a Spring 2013 Anime Season offering which watched online beside the also airing The Devil is a Part-Timer! and Date A Live by FUNIMATION. For the conclusion think this is way better than The Devil is a Part-Timer! simply because while open-ended it still gave the impression it was the only reasonable way it could end. Personally one of the main reasons picked up Karneval: Complete Series Limited Edition was that an anime like this doesn't come often and even then doesn't get licensed here in North America. Sentai Filmworks licenses a lot of "unique" anime but FUNimation does only occasionally. Karneval is just that very unique, so had to get this.

By the way, The Devil is a Part-Timer! is also another unique and interesting anime series, so for male anime fans who already think this might not be for you then that series was pretty hilarious. It also had high animation production values like Karneval. Then again worth looking into is Date A Live too. Out of the two though probably Date A Live because The Devil is a Part-Timer! has a sudden and mundane ending that doesn't close it well and it feels just like it sneaked up on you in how it just ends. Meanwhile you have Date A Live which is good as a standalone and then you have Date A Live 2, Season 2 of Date A Live, to look forward to. Keep in mind though Date A Live 2 hasn't officially been licensed in the United States yet so you will have to see it online via FUNIMATION and perhaps in the future it will be licensed for home video release by FUNimation Entertainment.

Genre: Fantasy, Action, Comedy, Bishonen

Karneval packaging and on-disc extras: The Limited Edition chipboard box. It is very gorgeous! I kid you not. The illustration on the backside feauturing handome Gareki and cute Nai are done by Touya Mikanagi. At least that is what it says on the artbox of who illustrated, I believe.

Amazing Anime 11 Jun 2014
By Risu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Although the first episode scared the bejeezus out of me, I'm thoroughly enjoying it. There's a good blend of horror, mystery, suspense and enjoyment in this one show. And the casting and voice acting for the English dub are amazing!

Buy It!!!!! Its Worth it to let your inner child play : ) 1 July 2014
By Ian Sitarik - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
By far one of the best new upincoming animes of 2014. Rivals Attack on Titan atleast in my eyes. Made of world of mystery, wounder, horror, and GodDamn cute characters into one of the most thrilling, heart throbbing, edge of my seat rocking series I have ever seen. Great opening for a series and one of the best english dubs i have seen in a while. I really hope they pick it up for another season, I would really like to see an actual series come out of this short 13 ep run; so support the artists and buy a copy (when its on sale lol). If not still watch it online seriously a good anime.... if you appreciate anime. If your just looking for cheap action this may not be for you.

Buy this DVD 16 Jun 2014
By Monda - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
I'm an avid anime watcher. I've seen a lot of shows and I think this one is very much worth the purchase. It is sort of left open-ended but that is because A. There is more of the story in the manga volumes and B. They are considering making a season two if sales are good. If you liked this anime, buy it. Help support an additional season. <3
