Is anyone else watching this series, the torrents have been up for quite a while but i recently downloaded them and after seeing about half (13 epi watched so far) of them I have to say this is quite a good series.
Spoiler:


Anyway, I wonder whaat other people think about this show, and for those who haven't seen it yet try it out it's been a pleasant surprise so far.

I wouldn't waste your time with this series. Complete and utter disappointment. The beginning starts out all right, but the middle gets far too bloated and goes practically no where, because it tries to do too much in those episodes, and the ending is pretty lame. I'd run and run now from this series very fast.

Yeah gonna have to agree with DrWho. It hypes you up then kicks you in the balls and runs away in the end.

That's because the 2nd half is made up, and deviates off the manga to fit the anime schedule.

The Manga is still on-going.

AE Nisei (Anime-Empire's Manga division) is almost caught up with the anime part of the manga.

Once we're caught up, you can see the differences, and actually enjoy it more. Anime ending was made up and rushed.

I agree the end was rushed, but I don't regret watching the full series, that I thought to be pretty good... much better than you're average fighting anime.

you know you guys scare me , I'm about to start on the 2nd part and now I allready feel dissapointed before even seeing it. However I'm still gonna give it a fair chance, something that makes me see 7 episodes in a row can't be that bad... ... (i hope)

By all means watch the rest...I liked watching it..all of it...but like everyone said the ending could of been better or "extended" in a way...

besides...isn't it better watching all of it and knowing the full story..or just giving up on it half way and thinking it'll just suck cause everyone else said it does...all this is just everyone's opinion...watch it for yourself and come up with your own

I watched all but the last two episodes (before the tournament). It's not a bad show, some people say the ending sucks I haven't seen the ending so I can't say but as the story progresses it gets more whiney and whiney and the humor and energy in the beginning is lost

the introduction and body of the story and anime was great (i dunno, but mayb they might hav gotten it from the manga). but i agree with everyone that the rnding was rushed and im sorry to say about an anime with a considerable amount of potential; but the ending sucked. i still think that u should watch this anime. it was able to convey emotions that were frustration, hilarity, happiness, adn much more. it was really a great anime and i dont regret watching one little bit. now im going to go look for the manga .

and 7thMethuselah, plz dotn b scared of the opinions of others, we all hav different opinions ans yours may be different. if ur opinion is different, then by all means, diregard wat we've said. so watch this anime and enjoy!

I am doing a blitz of animes I haven't watched yet and I finally got around to watching this one too and I absolutely loved it!! Yes, they rushed the ending, but it was awesome overall. I'd love to honestly see a sequel to this anime. Yes, it was that good. But I have one huge question. When I watched the ending of 26 I was like "WTF??" I know Ruri fired up her powers full bore but did everyone get out alive? Did they die? Or more specifically, what the heck happened? One second they're in the slums that are falling apart, the next second they're in the middle of a field of flowers in the middle of nowhere in a surreal setting with just the 3 main hero charecters plus Ruri and nobody else. I'm seriously confused about that ending. I'm still sitting here going "Like WTF happened?" There is definately no clear resolution on the end of this anime.

Hmm, I've seen this anime a long time ago. My thoughts on it were, meh. It wasn't horrible, but it wasn't great either. It's kinda average, if you ask me. The idea had so much promise in the beginning, I thought. But it just seemed to drag on and on. I swear, the anime could have been told in fewer episodes. And I wasn't a big fan of the ending either.

Well, I do admit they could have done some things better, but overall I liked it a lot. Too bad they horked the ending.

Don't listen to the haters. I liked Tokyo Underground too. I really liked the characters and I didn't really hate the ending. It was a little vague, but you get the idea. Chelsea Rourke kicks major ass. I was looking for some Chelsea figures for a while but couldn't find any... ah well.

Lol, amazing how you managed to revive the topic. I never even knew there was one at ASuki

And though the whole series was enjoyable, I have to agree that

I thought it was decent but it was years ago. I'm not sure I would enjoy it as much as I did then.
But the characters were cool and fun so I say give it a shot.

edit: was a bit shocked to see it mentioned it's pretty old, 4years or something? oh well doesn't matter.
