Shu's a detective, the brooding, enigmatic type with an eye for the ladies. Together with his kid brother Akira, and 'the girls' Manami and Ayaka, he runs an investigative agency that takes on the odd case here and there. Okay, odder than usual, given that their main broker is a cross-dresser and their closest associate's a doctor with a 'thing' about cosplay. And then the oddest case of all comes through: a 'package' intended for 'delivery' that turns out to be a lot more trouble than expected. You see, Shu's always considered himself a quick study (he can see through most lies in a second) but when he goes head on with a girl who doesn't even know who she is, he'll be seeing through more than he ever imagined seeing through. Unfortunately, there are other people who want Sara back and they know a lot more about who, and what, she actually is than she does! Old fashioned detective work meets the latest in modern weapons technology as sci-fi meets private eye in GLASS MAIDEN - THE COMPLETE COLLECTION!

while it has action/adventure/mecha elements, the shining jewel of this tv show is the romance between the two main characters: himeko and chikane. they are born in a small village in japan and are unknowingly priestesses that are called upon every generation to defend the earth from the orochi, an evil group of mislead humans that are controlled by the head orochi spirit. the plot unfolds as they try to fight these demons, and live their lives at the same time
this has Japanese audio with English subtitles! I just wanted to get that out of the way because the product description wasn't very clear on that. anyway...
the romance in this show will have your heart tied in knots, you will be going through emotional peaks and troughs as you try to cope with the developing character relationships. I was able to relate to this show really easily, and I imagine most people that enjoy any type of romance will enjoy this, even if it is what some people would consider cliché. and its not really, as many times I was going "wtf?!", I just think some people say that because the story has a happy ending
there is some fanservice, but not enough to where it makes you want to stop watching, just enough where it makes you pause and go "really don't need this" and then you will keep watching and be too engrossed in the story to care
***and you MUST watch the ENTIRE last episode, to the very end, to complete the story
***also, beware of a certain scene involving rape. the show shows absolutely none of the actual act, but it is so emotionally impactful (and once you look back on it, poorly handled, which is why this got a 4 and not a 5. really deserves a 5) that you will probably scream for about 5 minutes after that episode (just like I did)
just seriously, buy this and watch it. if you support this show, maybe in the future the anime community will get more heartfelt yuri/shoujo-ai than the handful they have now. please watch it, for your sake and mine
I've read some bad reviews of this anime. I don't really get why people don't like it. It has great animation, voice acting, music, characters, plot, and a very touching conclusion. My only issue with this one is the length. It's 12 episodes long. Like many more animes this series could have been way better with more depth and character development. It's very difficult to create a massively emotional series in that short of a time. This anime was trying to do that. It succeeded in being great, but could have been much better with more story. This anime doesn't suffer from being short though. It's still very good. I recommend this for any anime fan that's 14 or older. I love it!
