Absolutely love the characters! I love how they all have an actual story. All of the stories were explored without going on side arcs or unimportant episodes. The fights are exciting and at some points horribly suspenseful. I am excited to see what happens with the main character and his sister. Really this anime covers so many bases for me. Loveable main character? Check. Fiery female character with a backstory? Check. Other characters that actual matter and have story? Check. Put that all together and tie it into the overall plot of the tournaments held within the schools and you have an exciting anime full of mystery and potential!
