Well, I was just going through my external HD with all my anime in it and I came across FFU. I remember that I watched the first few episode a couple of years back and it never spiked any interest for me me.

I've just been wondering if anyone has actually finished up the entire anime if it's storyline is worth watching?

Aka Chrno Crusade. No idea why they leave the first "O" in Chrono out, but that's how the series spells it.

It is a pretty good series. CC, not FFU.

I found it awful, but in an enjoyable way.

same.

The ending, imo, was rushed.
I have the box set that best-buy put out one year, it was only $10, and I feel I got my moneys worth (because it was $10).

Same. Personally I really enjoyed it but I can easily see why most people wouldn't.

On the other hand, I didn't like Chrno Crusade that much. I got about 6-7 episodes in and gave up out of boredom.

I've never seen Claymore so I don't know, but FFU's "ending" starts off on a good foot. They have to go collect something (good number of chaos things). Then 2 episodes later it is over.

I think the second ending to the series was Romancing Train by MOVE.

Oh, and any time I hear Bring me to Life by Evanescence I always think of MOVE.

Yeah same here. Although I never did finish it. I was borrowing it from a friend and I ended up moving away before I watched all of it. I keep meaning to buy the set, but it isn't very high on my priority list, so I haven't bothered.

Yeah, definitely a rushed ending. I think it was supposed to be a 52 episode series that was canceled, so they wrapped it up quickly.

peace,

FFU was not a really bad anime. It also was not a great one. It had a plot and some intresting chars. If your an Anime fan its worth having to watch.

But don't watch it because you are a Final Fantasy fan. You'll be kind of disappointed.
