very very mediocre, not worth the full price.

( contains spoilers ) Sorry to the fans of this series but, the plot is very average , girl is fabled creature/government experiment etc. I really found this a challenge to watch all the way through, but did so in the hope it would improve. The end of it is this : spurting blood and guts does not a good anime make!
Some good fight scenes
very gory in parts ( if you like that stuff )
Very very slow moving , i nearly didn't make it past the first 4 episodes ( bear in mind i watch a lot of anime, everything from fruits basket to bakemonogatari, FMA etc ) this picks up in certain parts and then the story gets so boring you start getting distracted by the tiniest things happening around you.
The lead protagonist can be so annoying , walking along the road singing totally random claptrap such as "im so happy , i cleaned my room , father will be happy, the sun is shining"in a squeeky most irritating voice, i think i actually regurgitated listening to it at one point. Also the voice acting is particularly unconvincing in parts.
She also has this strange habit of standing there watching her so called friends die before she fights, this is particularly noticeable in the school scene towards the end of the series.
Some of the main creatures are ok , but a couple at the end are so ridiculous that they spoil the series even more.
If you must watch this pick it up used or on sale, so glad i only paid £10.00 for it. It will basically just sit with my anime collection and never be watched again.
