Benika reminds me of the scarred Russian woman in Black Lagoon. They're quite similar in appearance and personality.

I love the light novel/manga art but I still like the anime designs too.

Great show!

I'm thinking reading the novel. There are 2 volumes out (or more I haven't really check...) in Chinese. My question is, does the anime follow the novel? How far ep2 is into the novel? Is Murasaki as great as the anime in the novel? I need more Murasaki!

regards,

Li On

It follows the general guideline, but changed and add a lot of the thing. The Novel is awkward enough, the anime's change is even more odd. Especially the whole "arm might go berserk" that anime has added, it felt so random.

Thanks! My only concern is Murasaki! Is she worse/same/better in the novel? Does the novel has less/same/more focus on her?

regards,

The only bigger complain about these series for me is Character Designs. They are butt-ugly compared to novels and manga. Sad. A good plot and story and character personalities are also good, but the horrible artwork really makes it's value lower.

It is still a good series, but it could be much better with a designs that would remind of manga or novels.

Hmm looking at the novel covers I actually prefer the character designs in the anime. They just look more realistic to me.

What's great about these character designs (apart from looking damn good in my eyes) is that they're unique. The moment I first saw the trailer I knew the guys who designed and directed Red Garden were behind this. I have great respect for people who's constantly trying to develop their own style, their own language not just in anime, but in film, novel, music, you name it. Experimenting with styles and refining them in order to break away from the limitations of stapled look and feel of characters that exhaust both the viewers and the works is what I like the most about these designs.

Even the designs of Akagi and Kaiji, which I'm not a big fan of, infuses that sense of crude ugliness that clearly distinguishes itself from other series.

No real hate, just difference over preference.

I agree, it is unique, but Attractive it is not to me.

I prefer the manga, or rather I prefer that particular style of art that the manga uses.

Exactly. Personally I am also very tired of series where all the characters look virtually the same and just by seeing the designs you have no clue whether it is this anime or that anime or something else just as generic, since a there is nothing to make the characters look unique at all. That's why I love of the character designs of series like Kurenai and Monster.

Also, having some relatively ugly people in the anime enhances the dark, gritty feeling.

Give her a chance, it's hard to be awesome when you have done virtually nothing but talk in the first two episodes.
