Michael Eh?

For this slow paced slice of life anime, the visuals were not that bad. Opening was great mixture of CG and traditional animation. Can't really get into the card game but drama flashback felt more a series within the the series. The drama is 3 children now teens and how they have drifted apart as they grew up. It's a story about dreams and how they fade and change. More of a fair for those liked Usagi Drop but diehard action fans will choke on this show. Still it is better scripted and paced first episode than most we'll see this season.
