Something in the department of character development seems lacking.
To say the least, it doesn't cover enough of the real plot as it focuses more on the "bonding" arcs of the manga. The order of the anime is actually quite jumbled up if you compare it to the manga but makes sense for an anime watcher. The thing about the sudden meeting is something that was skipped in the anime, but you will grow to learn that their relationship grows throughout the series. At the start they were less of being friends than towards the end (though if you read the manga, you would see that it is a different case ~ the anime can be misleading at times).

But overall, the character development does not lack besides the initial introductions. That is jsut something you will have to swallow.
