What also helps the show is splendid visuals, hard-hitting sound and music, and an excellent English dub cast. Lead Saya starts off as an exuberant girl who sings on her way to school, passing by lush green countryside by day...yet at night stoically confronts village-threatening beasts in gloriously severe blood-soaked battles. Over the course of the show this oddly dual nature of the character and environment will be explored. The more pedestrian but exquisitely animated movie sequel "The Last Dark" follows from the series. Blu-ray visual quality is solid and works around a show that is soft and often pastel colorful, but some banding will be immediately evident even early in the first episode. Audio effects and forboding music are potent in action scenes, yet at other times focused smartly on tense ambient sounds. Featured are some always-welcome English dub commentaries and a secondary dvd version of the series. Lastly, this has a reversible cover that even retains a title on the spine.
