I thought this anime was great! The characters are some of my favorite. Ikki has to be one of the all time sweetest guys. He is genuinely a good person who would do anything for those around him. I’m usually more of a fan of the bad guys but Ikki really does take the good guy cake. He starts at the very bottom and attempts to reach the top solely via hard work and determination. In his case, many would just sit back and live an easy life but not Ikki. He is actually a really good role model. Where are the guys like him in real life??
I also really liked Stella. At first, I thought she was loud and just annoying but the more I got to know about her, the more I was able to appreciate her personality. Her life has been the complete opposite of Ikki’s. Stella has an incredible amount of raw power and is able to easily defeat her opponents through brute strength.
I loved the art. I found the color saturation to be beautiful with all of the pinks and blues. This may seem silly but I am a tad bit obsessed with the character’s hair colors. It’s kind of a reverse ombre with a lighter color at the top turning into a deeper color at the bottom. It’s some of the prettiest anime hair that I’ve ever seen.
I hope there will be a second season!
