NOTES:
– My rating is a 7 because the anime is not that good (compared to the manga), the endings for the manga and anime felt sudden/not satisfying, and in the manga I felt there were some parts dragging on.
– I watched the anime first and then read the manga. The anime barely begins to tell the story, so it doesn’t show much.
– The anime does imply somethings that aren’t true.
– O_O I think I made it sound like I hate the anime… I don’t hate it, but the manga is SOOO much better. However, the manga seems pretty long since there are some depressing events. I would recommend taking breaks now and then when reading the manga. I started watching Fairy Tail late in this manga, so it helped me a lot.
