MyAnimeList (user: Captain-Pimp)

: Overall - I think most people will say the Heian arc was the better arc than the Tokyo arc simply because the Tokyo arc deals with the character's modern life and some supernatural mystery involved. However, this anime is definitely original and interesting to watch.

 
Anime-Planet (user: Nimurai)

: If you like historical, this is your thing. If not, this is too, since half the story is set in modern times.
