Storyline

Twelve year old Aoyagi Ritsuka is left with his insane mother as his only family when his brother, Seimei, is killed suddenly. After moving to a new school, he meets Agatsuma Soubi, who claims to have known his brother. Ritsuka discovers that Soubi and Seimei used to be a fighting pair, whereby Soubi was the "Fighter" and Seimei was the "Sacrifice". Now that Seimei is gone, Ritsuka has inherited Soubi, who will become his "Fighter". After learning that Seimei was killed by an organization known as the "Seven Moons", Ritsuka decides to investigate into his brother's death, with the sometimes useless help of Soubi, along the way.

Thoroughly Entertaining!!!
15 January 2013 | by izibellzSee all my reviews

This is the first anime I've ever watched, if you don't count the countless Pokémon episodes that I caught on TV over a decade ago when I was trying to avoid homework after school, and I have to say: I'M IMPRESSED! :)

I absolutely adored the entire story, which I also found surprisingly deep. I mean, I didn't know *what* to expect, but I guess I was skewing towards something much more silly, and LOVELESS is anything *but* that. It's sad, but at the same time hilarious, almost poking fun at itself, but in a wonderfully *dark* way. The characters are all quite brilliant, the secondary ones so well-crafted that - in my opinion - they often steal the scene from Soubi and Ritsuka. My *only* problem is Soubi, who drove me half-crazy with his aggravating cageyness and with the way he kept going off on his own ... and then *getting hurt*, ahem ... and refusing even to let Ritsuka help him AFTERWARDS. Come on, dude: WTF?! But I sort of came to understand him a little more by the end, which is why I didn't end up dropping a star or two. I warmed up to him during the second-last episode, which almost had me rolling on the floor laughing FOR REALS.

I'd really like more episodes, though, because there are so many questions left unanswered. I want to know more about Seimei and any other Loveless and Ritsu and all the Zeros and what the fridge-tart happened at the end and ... BAH! I guess I should just read the manga, eh?

Anyway, this anime's cool, and it definitely has me wanting to check out some others.
