intricate and fascinating
This story is wonderful, and the characters and artwork are beautiful.
When I first watched the dubbed version, it was very confusing, but after watching the Japanese with subtitles, everything became clear and I really enjoyed it.
It has tons of originality, and the interview with the director has made me curious to read the novels. He consulted with the writer of the series during the making of the animes, and preserved as much of the original ideas as possible, being a fan of the novels. He clarifies the things that were changed and why, and it makes total sense.
The only thing is that the final eps seem like they were leading to more, but there are no more. I'm guessing that the novels continued to come out, but for some reason they never pursued making any more animes.
Neverhtheless, this is a beautiful series and worth owning for those who like stories with historical perspective, and the characters are great.
