A likeable and kick-ass hero, a gorgeous "little sister", a shadowy cabal with undetermined motives and enough fight scenes and fan service for the most jaded anime fiend. It was well worth it but, unfortunately, it is just one season and I would have loved to see at least 2 seasons more to flesh out the plotlines laid out in Season 1. All in all, a solid bang for your buck!

This show has good humor and it's funny how fast the main character can remove a girls under garments without even touching her
