Uragiri wa Boku no Namae o Shitteiru anime review
Sakurai Yuki is a mysterious boy with a mysterious ability. He was found in the bushes as a baby and adopted by his current family. Because of this, Yuki strives for independence. The last thing he wants is to be a burden to anybody. Furthermore, when he touches others, he can feel their emotions. Unable to control his ability, he often made insensitive blunders in the past. With death threats and his abilities increasing, somebody appears claiming to be his brother.

The story is, generally, very well thought out. It is extremely in-depth and although extremely hard to understand at first, is great once you get a grip on it.

The characters also make the plot just as good, if not better than it is already. Making the story better was impossible, or so I thought, until I took a deeper look at the characters.

Yuki Sakurai - (Or Yuki Giou, however you wish to say his name), the main character, makes the story very interesting. The fact that he was female in his past life and male in his current life is also an interesting concept, in my eyes.
Luka Crosszeria - (First known as Zess) is mysterious and beautiful. His role confused me at first, but it made more sense the further into the story I got. His role makes me happy, and his character is also very well thought out.
Tsukumo Murasame - I don't think I'm the only one who thinks that he looks like Zero from Vampire Knight. He also carries a similar weapon... Regardless, I love him. His ability has to be my favourite, considering it allows him to communicate with animals. His gun is also sexy~
Toko Murasame - To be perfectly honest, I usually strongly dislike the main female roles in anime and mangas, since they usually can't do anything but heal, get themselves kidnapped, and fall in love with the main male protagonist. I mostly like her personality, since it is so different from that of many main female characters. She also uses a huge sword, which in my opinion, is freakin' awesome. She's actually a very pretty girl as well.
Hotsuma Renjou - I love this guy. His personality, his looks, everything. Well, other than the fact that he's an arse to Yuki at first, but he has his reasons. Although like Renji from Bleach, I didn't like him at first. But getting further into the series makes you understand his true feelings much better. I also cried because of how close he is to Shuusei as well. I'd also be surprised if anybody I knew actually hated him as well. He is my brothers favourite character, after all.
Shuusei Usui - My personal favourite character in this series. His quiet yet caring personality isn't something you can come by to often in anime, but I'm glad I finally found somebody like that. His past also seems to be mysterious, which makes him all the more sexy... But on another note, I think that he's a hard character to hate. I'd also bash your head in if you did hate him! Him and Hotsuma have a very close relationship as well, and I think they look extremely cute as a couple~
Takashiro Giou - I'll be very blunt. I used to hate this guy. I thought he was an arse to Yuki, and honestly, I like Yuki very much. But after I got to the point when he apologized to Yuki, I started to love him. One of those characters that I hated but I thought was very sexy... So, his character in itself certainly isn't my favourite, but I don't hate him. But those glasses and that long gorgeous hair... *Drools*
Wakamiya Kanata - At this point, I'm on neutral grounds with him. Considering his connection to the story, yeah I'm just not sure anymore. I still like him but... Well, I guess his relationship with Yuki is what's saving me from strongly disliking him, honestly.
