    Been looking for an Anime with a good story plus action, is this any good?

    Btw, I like shit that's fucked up like Berserk, which I haven't found anything even in the same vicinity.

    Anime. Theres a light novels as well.

    Finished long time ago.

    Plot: Girl gets sucked into a fantasy type setting. She becomes a queen for a country. First half of it is her running around. Theres political plots and assassination attempts, etc. Country is in tormoil. Second half is that she is established as queen, but is merely a puppet as tons of shit is happening behind her back. Turmoil still occurs in her country and she tries to secretly gain control back.

    Definitely watch it. It's pretty memorable plot. Also theres tons of little subplots that have nothing to do with the protagonist that occur in different kingdoms. Eventually these characters at the end do meet up with the queen to fulfill their roles.

    There's very few anime that I would rewatch. This is one of them.

    I enjoyed this anime a lot. I've rewatched it a few times myself.

    It's no Beserk, not even close to Claymore... it's more like Flame Recca, kinda.

    Flame of Recca was kinda meh.

    Lots of character development in 12 kingdoms. Even the side stories were interesting to watch. In terms of anime, its I think its better than claymore. Haven't watched Berserk anime though.

    It's definitely one of my favorites.

    claymore was dog shit in comparison to the story of 12 kingdoms.

    berserk anime is just a bit better (nowhere close to manga-level though).

    The Claymore anime got fucked up. Claymore manga is WAY better.
