Great first half, rubbish fillers afterwards smothered it in disappointment.
Overall amazing adaptation, until the third season. Ruins the purpose of getting into it and you could simply read the Manga instead.
The second half is just unnecessary filler.
My all time favorite manga adapted. It holds up well when it follows the manga, and falters greatly when it tries to do original content
Barely average. Might have liked it more if I watched while it was airing. Does have some great moments at times.
This one is a classic but do yourself a favor and skip the filler, w/o filler this is an action packed and riveting story start to finish.
Recomiendo el Manga pero el Anime no se queda atras Muy buena trama y personajes
