The world is ending, Hibiki and his friends must not only fight against the looming creatures threatening humanity. They must also decide what they’re fighting for. This is actually based on a video game, and is in my opinion one of the best adaptations I have ever seen.
I am a huge fan of this anime, it’s the first anime I actually watched, and is the reason why I’m such a fan of the medium in general.
The storyline is fairly good. It doesn’t have the best one ever written, but it’s pretty solid and the ending is very well done. The action scenes are epic. One of the best things about this show is the group of five main characters. Hibiki, Daichi, Nitta, Alcor and Yamato. Their backstories, personalities and the way in which they all interact is what makes this show truly special in my opinion.
This is one of the few reviews in which I’m actually going to mention the ending theme. This ending theme is one of the best I’ve ever seen. It is the same sequence each time, where you see all the characters from the show walking casually, scattered around a regular patch of cityscape both before and after the event. However, whenever a character dies in the show they disappear from the ending. The final ending is the most important one to watch. I won’t spoil it though!
I highly recommend that you watch this series. (I may be a little biased though, even though I tried to be as subjective as possible.)
