Now Miharu struggles to understand the mystery buried in his soul, and must choose a side if he hopes to survive. But when conflict is waged in secret, and lethal ninjas hide in plain sight, friend and foe prove difficult to tell apart.

However, when Nabari No Ou captured my attention, I was immediately drawn in for keeps.
The story follows junior high studedn, Miharu Rokujou, and friends as he learns that he is destined to become King of Nabari - the ninja world. However, he is led by his indifference - caused by fear - to want nothing to do with the ninja world. However, upon coming into contact with the Kira user known as Yoite, Miharu begins to make a slow turn around, displaying deep emotions for his new found friend.
This is an amazing story which covers an amazing range of emotions, not to mention, the artwork is beautiful and the action is very well animated.
I would suggest Nabari No Ou to anybody any time.
If you're looking for a story full of action, comedy, emotion, and a great storyline, this anime is for you.
The introduction seems so "typical" (accept for the highly original artwork) that at first you expect the "typical" shonen series;(where the lackluster protagonist fights the bad guys with his band of merry 14 year olds), but instead it turns into a thoughtful and involving tale of friendship, convictions and revelations; each built up with slickly choreographed fight scenes that often convey double meanings. For example; when Raime fights her brother under the bamboo trees she also conducts and internal battle against her own stubborness.
To tell you more of why I liked this series would give to much away, but it is rare for me to find a shonen series so thoughfully and beautifully constructed that it touches my heart and stimulates my imagination. Kudos to Kamantani and JC Staff for a job well done. :)
I would say you should watch this just for something to watch, not something that you're looking for something that you may want to watch over and over, just something to watch if there is nothing else to see, and still be entertained. Because it did have some funny moments.
