I don't ususally write reviews, but I thought I'd try to leave a helpful short word here for anyone else thinking about buying this series.
What I liked very much about 'Tactics' are the storylines typically consisting of some local, historical,legend/phenomena of sorts. What I liked less, was that
the storylines could have been opened up and developed so much more if the producers had had them span at least two episodes or more.
The animation is good (imo though I'm no expert...), especially on the opening credits.
Initially, slow, this part 1 of the series picks up a great deal by the third disk and I will now be buying the second part of the series.
Final word, I found the japanese voice acting more palatable than the english, there seemed to be a lack of conviction in the latter.

I loved this series and am so pleased I bought it. In my opinion it is beautifully animated, has wonderful characters and plot. I was drawn in from the start and couldn't wait to see the next episode. I loved spirited away and it has that kind of feel to it although personally I think, like most manga, it would not be suitable for young children.

I have a wide ranging taste in films, TV and books and would not class myself as just a hardcore manga fan. My taste maybe different to a lot of peoples so to give you an idea I also loved nearly all the studio Ghibli films, Descendants of Darkness and Witch Hunter Robin. If you enjoyed these I think you should like tactics too.

Firstly, before all the angry replies to this review appear...I'm not usually so harsh in a review but the level of love this anime seems to have following it really didn't seem to co-incide with the show I sat down and watched. Before you think about raging at me for not thinking too highly of 'Tactics', think about the points I make and then see if you can actually counter them. Anyway, here we go:

Where to start with this anime? That is the real question. I think I'll go through the good and bad of each topic, starting with the plot as thats what I have the most problems with.

PLOT: The "GOOD": Unsure with this one. It wasn't anything special - Kantarou (protagonist) is a young exorcist with the ability to see demons. He goes around helping people out with their problems by getting rid of their ghosts and helping those who are possessed and so on. He has the ability to "name" a demon (call it by its real name) and assume command over it. One day he finds the shrine (/prison) of a very powerful demon known as "The Demon Eating Goblin". Again, he takes control over the demon and uses him to help on his daily demon expelling errands. Eventually we find that other demons become interested in the newly arisen demon eater, and want to awaken his old powers... etc etc... several small fights ensue... good guys win... + mediocre, unsatisfying ending to finish it all off. SO. Nothing too special or unique with regard to plot.

The "BAD": Consistency - The flow of the plot line is all over the place. For the first half of the series you basically get a typical scooby-doo like scenario; good guys turn up at house, victim wants help, good guys find what is causing the problem and get rid of it.
