I love it, truely, and the english dub is fantastic, i know this because im sad enough to put the sub titles on while watching the english version! hehe. There are slight variations in whats said but no major changes from whats actually the subject in the scene.
hmmm.... what else, lets see, oh becasue its based on the first 7/8 books, it lacks some of the romance which goes on between tohru, Kyo and Yuki. But thats why im hoping and praying that there will be a second series one day so i can see where the anime is going, because it does leave you on a 'but what about this/that?' kinda thought when its over.
well this is an opinion of a 15year old girl. but hopefully you will find this review helpful, but personally i think you should because i have watched this anime well over 20 times, one of my favourites when going bed (^_^) and also i own the manga aswell, so i can compare the quality of the anime to the fantastic manga it was based on. well im babbling on.
hope you find this helpful.
and please give this anime a chance, you love it from the first episode (i can asure you)
Unfortunately, the final episodes used in this up-til-now wonderful anime were NOT the final episodes of the manga, which naturally means that there was still a lot of the storyline left hanging.
However, that really doesn't make the "curse of the cat" storyline any less riveting or heartbreaking.
As orphaned girl Tohru Honda adjusts to life with the Sohmas, she makes new friends and learns the family's incredible secrets, which are often far worse than the Zodiac Curse they live with.
So when the inevitable happens and she learns of the Sohma Family's darkest secret- Kyo Sohma's vengeful true form, her reaction will determine how much she has really learned about herself, and others. If she can't do what no-one else has done and accept him for what he is, her time with the Sohma's, and all of her wonderful memories, may go up in smoke.
This story was used in volume 6 of the manga, which I'm not ashamed to say had me crying by the end of the chapter!
The final moments are just so tender and sweet that they really put other classics such as Sailor Moon and Cardcaptors to shame.
Will there be a series two? I can only hope so- it seems a real shame to start something so wonderful, and then not finish it.
An absolutly beautiful anime! I was hooked from start to finish. The characters are all so cute and the story is so strong and meaningful!
Though the series is only 26 episodes it is definatly worth buying! You won't regret it!
The Packaging is slimline.
It's a small think card sleeve housing two thin DVD cases. This can make it feel a bit cheap I think but overal it's nice.
The episodes aren't named, I don't know if it's because they never where. But they are listed clearly and overal navigation is easy and simple.
We have a 42" HD TV and you have to adjust the resolution so it ends up playing at 3/4 the screen size. I think this is just because the anime is old though.
Overal I am pleased witht his product and it's worth a buy :)
Awww it makes me cry in some places, I really feel sorry for Tohru (the girl) those guy's are waaaaay too lucky.
