Well, we haven't finished it, mind, and I've been told the ending is
anti-climatic, but it definitely becomes less episodic and less
"Let's go kill a witch. Okay. Let's go kill another. Okay...". I
also think that it's quite well drawn and has more of a coherent
feeling than a lot of anime. (I also watched it at about the same
time as Escaflowne, and they balanced well.)
The meta-plot introduced is quite interesting, although it's
developing rather slowly, and we can't get our hands on the end
episodes. I would recommend sticking with it past the first few
episodes, at least. Wait until the "Piece of knowledge" plot is
introduced before giving up.
