Karneval

Is this clandestine advertising I sense? I actually got in the mood to go to a circus or something. How sad… To think that a show, which turned out to be quite amusing, would make me want to waste money to see a bunch of weird stunts.

KarnevalThe one thing that I would’ve changed right away would be Nai’s hair. I don’t like those purple-highlighted hair-horns sticking out at the lower part of his head. The rest looked pretty good, especially the backgrounds. I was really enjoying that train scene.

I’m liking the story so far. It’s a nice change of pace. No sci-fi death lasers, giant fighting mechs or demons popping up all over the place. It’s a nice, classic scenery with a lot of unique and gifted characters. That’s definitely a nice change of pace.

I recommend this for sure. It looks like it’ll get a lot better, plus it’s a type of show that could run for quite a number of episodes. I’m kind of glad that I’m not that big a manga fan, because it would’ve killed if I had read this manga (with this being a mystery-genre anime and all).

Plot Summary: Nai searches for someone important to him, with only an abandoned bracelet as a clue. Gareki steals and pick-pockets to get by from day to day. The two meet in a strange mansion where they are set-up, and soon become wanted criminals by military security operatives. When Nai and Gareki find themselves desperate in a hopeless predicament, they encounter none other than the country’s most powerful defense organization—”Circus”!!
