Also, the ending was very abrupt.
So, now we've got all the bad stuff out of the way, let's get into the positives.
Firstly, there are the main characters. The voice actors (English) were excellent and if you are a regular watcher of anime, then you'll probably recognise one or two voices from other series.
The two main story protagonists are very likeable and have good background stories which makes it easy to connect with them on a Human level.
Nai, the white haired boy on the front cover is universally adorable and soon wins a big place in your heart, as well as in the hearts of some of the other characters, who keep going out of their way to protect him. I won't put any spoilers here, but you'll understand more about why his character is so likeable when you learn of his true origins!
There are some 'cutesy' moments that happen with Nai and a few of the other characters that adds to the charm and humour of the series.
I'm also happy to say, that those 'cutesy' moments are quite mild and nowhere near as nauseating as those gushing sickly-sweet, almost babyish moments that you can sometimes get in anime.
Secondly, did I mention the humour? I like that this anime doesn't take itself too seriously and there are some good humorous moments throughout.
Thirdly, some of the scenery is rather beautiful.
For me, one of the attractions of anime is to see the way they beautifully portray the world; the blue skies and green summer meadows always look 10 times better in an anime than in real life, and Karneval didn't disappoint.
Overall, I found it very enjoyable. Despite the storyline being a tad difficult to follow, the characters, the acting and scenery made up for it.
I think my favourite has to be Nai. His personal story is just so touching and emotional in places.
My only real criticism is that the story can be a little hard to follow sometimes. It's a tiny bit confusing but it's nothing too major and doesn't interfere with the overall enjoyment. And it certainly is not as confusing as some others I've watched.
