Fast pace, colourful and emotionally traumatising. This is a brilliant series that will have you questioning what it really means to be a girl. At first the story is incredibly cute and sweet to keep in line with all others in the genre. Then it goes dark. Really dark. And tragic.
The artwork is a amazing the way all of the elements clash yet compliment each other really well. Mix media style, collages and filters with exquisitely drawn and detailed backgrounds and stylised manga characters.
From my understanding it was originally a twelve episode series, but now you can watch it marathon style in the movie editions. So far, I can't tell any difference other than I have to purchase less disks.
Must watch. In fact I will trade my soul for it.
