    Tight

    The art, the story, and the characters can all be summed up by one word: tight. They have motivations and personalities, and the actions scenes are wonderfully executed. You might think, at first glance, that the series is a complete hack-and-slash horro-fest, but the truth is Togari is much more involved than that. The 316-year-old Tobei has a lot to learn about the 21st centuryt, and his antics are nothing short of hilarious, and his effects on the other characters are absorbing. I recommend this to anyone with a love of action and subtle humor. 5 stars!
