The main issue I had with this anime is that it is packaged as one thing in many places... a story about supernatural factions fighting for domination in the mundane world, with an aspiring pop-singer as the key character... when the truth is that this story is about 85% relationship-oriented. It's a romance with some supernatural elements thrown in. The struggle and rivalry between the factions are a serious backdrop, often more hinted at than played out, and they leave the viewer boggled about who belongs to what until six or seven episodes in. By the end, I was feeling that I wished they had done much more with some of that great story potential.
It has a feel-good, gentle, know-thyself kind of message, but the story, character design and setting are a little cliche. They throw in as many standard anime bits as they can, but all of these pieces have been fleshed out far better in other series. Summarized all together: It's a nice rental, looks good, and for the less finicky anime geek, it's certainly mellow and fun. As another reviewer has advised, I recommend giving some other titles a viewing before spending your money here.
**Based on all the anime I just listed that is better than Aquarian Age, you should realize that it just isn't worth it when there are so many other good series out there.
