    I haven't watched the anime nor read the manga yet however dat girl has dark blue/purple eyes, blue long hair and looks pretty just like my lovely Bern. You know what they say, when something looks even a slightly bit as Bern or just reminds me of her then you know it has always my damn attention. However currently I have not really the time to pick something new atm but I will add it in my list.

    How could you forget that Erin :scry. Of course I watched the anime. That's the reason I got interested in the manga in the first place.

    you wont regret it @Purity of Magi [​IMG] i would recommend you maybe whenever you can to start with the anime, i think its amazing visually and maybe most appealing for a newbie, though the manga is great too.

    I was interested in watching the anime and reading the manga of this. I thought it would be another one of those shows that are good despite its animation, but since I heard that it had a solid story, characters and animation, I'm very surprised and happy about it.

    The manga is supposedly as beautiful as the anime too. So I'm definitely going to put it on my watch/read list.

    Okay, but seriously, whatever suits you. For me, I'd go for the anime first, since on its own, it looks pretty good.

    Well I could say the manga as even though the adaptation is good, they did miss a lot of things especially in the final episode where they skipped 6 chapters and that are needed to understand what happen afterwards in the story.

    Just watch some scene of the anime to see how's the animation sometime later if you're curious.

    Which chapter should anime watchers start to read? As of yet, I have other series in my todo list which I have to attack, but HnK surely does deserve a spot in that list as well.

    Chapter 30 is the best place to start form for anime watchers.

    I have heard from many people that this is a great series but sadly my list is full now and time management problem is there so most probably I won't be able to read it.

    But I will definitely keep this in my "Plan to Read" list :verily
