I seen a thread about the manga series (here on AO) a while back and Hulu is currently streaming the anime series; so I watched the first episode. It's an okay series, I suppose. I guess I'll have to watch a few more episodes to really get a better opinion about it. I still haven't read the manga yet, but Shinku no Kage says it's pretty good, so it's worth a shot. ^_^
I can appreciate the concept of alchemy in a different anime series other than 'Fullmetal Alchemist'. I'm not dissin' FMA, by the way; just sayin' that 'Fullmetal' kinda monopolized on the subject of alchemy for a while there (I finally caught up on 'Brotherhood, BTW). The alchemy in Buso Renkin is a bit different in practice and there are homunculi, but they are quite different as well.
Has anybody seen this anime series yet? If so, what do you think?
If anyone is interested in watching it and then giving feedback, here's a link:

Re: Buso Renkin
I have seen it. It is nothing special, but enjoyable for a typical Shonen series. It is written by the creator of the much better series Rurouni Kenshin. The main lead it very typical and uninteresting, but a couple of the other characters (mostly the female lead and the primary villain) are somewhat interesting.
Worth watching if you don't have anything better to watch, but there are much better series out there.
