I always love people who reminds me of myself. Someone who is a control freak, and a leader deep within, would really do so. Let me share a very straightforward, well written, anime. It's actually more like an older anime and western-ish cartoons in a way, though.
Juusen Battle Monsuno, consists of villains that are really dangerous! The villains have real threat to them. If they say they will do something, they do so and they mean it. They do horrifying things.
The character leads are awesome, all well-written and I love how the are very outspoken. I felt like I am related to them in a way. They are all brave and clever, and well rounded. They are all relatable especially Bren. He's not the bravest or strongest or smartest, but he does his best.
Jinja is one of the best females ever! She is one of my most favourite characters ever. She is a total badass and awesome. She wins some fights by her martial ability, not monsuno.
She a straightforward, strong, character.
Chase is an overwhelming leader, and he is badass and brave. Very enthusiastic and willing to go into dangerous situations, to the point he's reckless. But not too irresponsible. Dax is awesome and not what he seems at first. Beyal is very sweet, and can fight well. Beyals adorable. He's one of my most favourite characters ever. Jon Ace is one of the finest characters ever! He is one of my most favourite characters ever. He's pure grand. He's a hardcore, discreet, soldier, whos extremely strong and tough.
He looks awesome and handsome too.
The antiheroes are overwhelming. Some of them are like the best villains ever. They vary from pitiless and splendid, to various kinds of crazy people. So, like all good villains, you end up cheering for them sometimes. Commandant Marshall Charlemagne is pure amazing. One of the best female characters ever! One of my most preferred characters ever.
The combat is faithful, and the monsuno use the area to fight. They ruin buildings, throw enemies into them, etc. The toys and anime tie in excellantly. Sometimes it can jar, like with the terrible Bakugan, but the combat and monsuno centers, etc, in the anime and the toys are very close or matching.
The monsuno are grand and unique. They are made from different animals, elements, etc.
An elite thing is, they all look like the group that made them. They have the faction colors. And their core is faction colored.
The story is amazing. It has many, many, surprises. And it can go dark. It can go happy, it can go anything it wants to.
What happens to Jon Ace at one point is astounding and sad. (oops, spoiler alert!)
Generally, this is fantastiiiiiic! I hope this gets a second season!
