This series may have a familiar sounding premise... ninjas in a modern-day world. But it is VERY different than any anime out there, in terms of details and execution. In this story, everyone has a reason for what they do. It becomes hard to tag anyone specifically as good or bad guys. Sides shift as ideologies evolve. Mysteries unfold. Bonds are formed and broken and changed forever and strengthened powerfully.

A bond with no name, stronger than friendship, closer than brotherhood, and more desperate than romance, forms between the two main characters. They are all alone, yet are together in that loneliness. It truly has no simple category. It's beautiful and tragic at the same time.

The pacing is earthy. It takes its time, yet is not boring. Characters take time to do things, both significant and seemingly trivial, just as they would in real life. But it moves along enough so that it doesn't drag out. There's plenty of awesome battles and action scenes, as well as suspense and even silliness, to keep things on the move, as well as a cohesive and forward-moving plot.

The tone is mostly sombre, wrought with quiet desperation. But it isn't dragged down by it; it's well carried by action and even comedy. The three elements accentuate one another, providing a rich, multi-layered experience.

The animation is quite good in quality, with a lot of detail and a good balance between flair and realism. The color palette is almost water-color in its soft, subdued hues, accentuated by much stronger contrasts in scenes of horror or action.

The music is gorgeous, very fitting for the moods of each scene, with several pieces standing out as memorable and gripping.

The characters are also memorable, with their own endearing quirks and human flaws.

This series is VERY good. It is about a young boy who lives an apathetic life and is suddenly thrust into the secret world of ninjas. He finds out that he is the holder of a jitsu that has the power to change the world as he wishes. But others have found out as well and covet that power to the extent that they are willing to kill all who get in their way. He makes new and talented friends and friends out of enemies. How he grows and develops to rise to these challenges is surprising as well as heart wrenching. A wonderful, action-packed series. For ages over 14 yrs. Great entertainment.

This was a very engaging and beautiful show right from the first episode. I absolutely loved it! I'm not going to go into too much details because others have certainly done that enough, and I'm just going to praise some of my favorite aspects. The character designs were extremely original and very well developed! I found myself caring greatly for many of them, and their personal ambitions. Characters that are portrayed as menacing and to be hated transform very often when new light is shed on them, making them more than what they first appeared. I grew to love each of them. Likewise some of the "good" guys turn around as well!

The animation was gorgeous! I definitely don't watch a lot of anime because it just seems too geared to teenage girls or with boring and cliche action plots (and of course there's those gross "adult" animes at FYE). Not so with this AT ALL! VERY original and VERY worth paying attention to every detail to get the whole thing! Back to what I was saying, this incorporates very complex and seamless animation with outrageously high and meticulous attention to detail. As a car drives by, the shadows of leaves are gorgeously moving on the surface with it. Atmospheres are developed lusciously with great fields, forests, cities, and mountains, tiles on roofs, people's reactions in the background, food design, etc. etc. Such beauty in details flashes by for such a short amount of time that you'd have to wonder why anyone even bothered! It's visually captivating!

Nabari No Ou has a slogan, "The ninja world is at war. Whatever." I have to agree, but cautiously. There is a lot to admire in Nabari.

It's modern times and the ninja world is alive and well, but hidden in the shadows, more accurately, hidden in broad daylight, but disguised in trendy trench coats, hoodies, and smashing scarves. It's anime though, so you've got to love it. Miharu is an apethetic kid who’s been blessed/cursed with an ancient ninja scroll that lies dormant in his body. Its powers are more Godlike than having anything to do with ninjutsu, but that's ok. Two different ninja factions are locked in competition for Miharu's loyalty.

The nice group befriends him first, but can't seem to make him care. Me and Miharu both. The fact that Miharu suffers from a constant gas leak in the room is one of the best and most original parts of the show. Yotei shows up from the bad clan, and is even more apathetic, depressed, but uses a ninja technique that is just as destructive to him as it is to opponents, making him the cool guy. A man-crush and coupling of spirits takes place and the rest of the show is spent discovering character backgrounds and watching an emotional tug of war match with Miharu and Yotei and their daddy clans. It's like Romeo and Romeo with the air let out.

Please don't get me wrong. That's just my cynical way of describing the show (which considering its theme, would greatly appreciate my choice of tone). Nabari is a good show. The animation isn't the best, but it's clean. The fights are animated admirably with no gimmicks. The character designs resemble Code Geass (body frames are thin like bamboo reeds). The story is different from standard ninja anime and has some worthwhile depth to it.
