Nabari No Ou

Nabari no Ou is a martial arts anime with a difference. Sure, there's lots of good fighting action, but the story is really about having a great power and deciding what to do with it. (Hmm, sounds familiar. ^^) Now imagine the power is somehow sentient and wants to be used, so it tempts you whenever it gets the chance. The biggest surprise is the choices the main characters make in the end. Honestly, I did not expect it. If you like your martial arts yarns to have a big final battle that settle everything, don't watch this anime. You'll be disappointed. On the other hand the series proves that a cerebral martial arts story is possible, if you try hard enough.
