I recommend this Anime if you like Sword fighting and a good developing story!
This anime is a lot better than I expected. I has good animation, voice acting, a unique story, and a pretty good soundtrack. There is a lot of action, drama, mystery, adventure, and some pretty interesting characters & plot twists. There isn't another anime out there that I can really compare this to. It's pretty original, despite that, I still found it lacking a little something that would make it a 5 star show. It's hard to put my finger on what it is, but The Third is comes just shy of being incredible. Even so, it's still really good, and definitely worth watching. I recommend it to any anime fan.
The Third does have a firm conclusion. That it will have a firm conclusion is not evident until the end of the series. Initially, The Third seems to consist of episodes in Honoka’s life presented in chronological order. Reminiscent of Glass Fleet, the conclusion is misty and mushy. I wasn’t expecting that type of conclusion. The rest of the series wasn’t that way. Unfortunately, the conclusion makes it difficult to ever be able to continue The Third to another series. We’ve probably seen all of Honoka that we’re ever going to be able to see.
The characters Honoka and Millie are well developed. The others are somewhat shallow, but adequate to tell the story. I wish that there could have been more of Millie in the Series but the writer of The Third felt that she should make her cameo appearance early in the series and move to the background afterwards.
The animation is good. The colors are bright and the scenes are well detailed. Honoka is a Sword Dancer and depicting her required a great deal of animation and that was well done.
Some reviewers objected to the commentary. I admit that it didn't add anything to the story, but it didn't ruin it either and I felt that the commentery should be given a pass.
I feel that The Third would be a good addition to most Anime science fiction collections. Admittedly, Honoka overshadowed the plot, which is decent but not exceptional, and The Third wouldn’t have been nearly as good without her. The Third is very heroine centered. I gave The Third five stars because I liked Honoka and also Millie. Without those two, it would have been four stars at best.

According to the summary, it has both English dialogue -and- Japanese w. or w.o English subtitles. Anime generally sounds best with the original dialogue. But some people don't like reading on-screen text.
