Breakdown Shakespeare once said that ‘all the world’s a stage and all the men and women in it merely actors’. Similarly, numerous psychologists and sociologists have spoken about the concept of ‘self’. Do we really show our true self in our daily interactions with others or are they all finely crafted masks?

Great and high memorable anime series can originate from a ton of factors. Some come as adaptations of manga, some from light novels, and some from games or even from original adaptations. What’s amazingly rare, is finding a great, deep, and dark show that originated from a TCG (trading card game). Kiba (2006) is just one of them. Unlike most shows of the genre, Hiroshi Kojina (director) stated that “(the series) absolutely won’t have any plot elements that curry favor to children.” He further added, “Kiba won’t be the type of show to put ‘human drama’ on the back burner.” With words like that coming from the creative team, and a studio like Madhouse handling animation, Kiba managed to become what perhaps no anime of its type could. Something more than its TCG basis. The real problem is how it compares to other shounen-action-fantasy […]
