The television series is based on a light novel with the same title written by Yashichiro Takahashi. It was produced by J.C Staff into 24 beautiful episodes and is now licensed by FUNImations. The graphics of the anime series are truly remarkable and gorgeous with a very realistic feeling. The soundtracks played an important role in every scene as they not only set the mood but showed inner emotions between the characters and enhanced mood sensations when needed. The story line has a lot of romance and psychological as well as emotional disturbances the character will have to cooperate with. The series is better for the older audience as there is quite a bit of gore involved in it as well as a fair amount of echi references with lots of fan service and insinuating material. The genders that compose this anime are romance, action, drama and some slight comedy used mostly for relieving the tension on the atmosphere in the scene. This is a great anime for any anime fan as it has many factors that will leave the viewer wanting more.
