I watched both series of Sekirei and a tear came to my eye when the girl died in the second series. In the manga she died after they got her ashikabi to a proper hospital to help her. Was apparently very sad.
I like Miya. Would like to see what she could do if there is a 3rd series. I loved it when we saw her past. I would love to see her love affair with that doctor she liked. Can't recall his name. I enjoyed when she used her sword to release a shock wave that cut the submarine in half. That was cool.
However, Pokémon was one of the reasons I got into the world of animé along with Dragon Ball. And not many shows will compete with them. I still play the games and love them.
Sekirei is similar to Pokémon in ways. They fight to the death, Pokémon fight until one faints. One wins and won loses the only difference is death. The Ashikabi with the best Sekirei usually wins, same with Pokémon. If you choose to ignore the obvious, then you don't want to see the similarities. Just because they share similar traits doesn't make it bad. Like I said, I enjoyed Sekirei. It's kida of like Freezing. I enjoyed Freezing more though.
