This entry is part of 12 Moments in Anime 2011.
#12 is Gilbert and Vincent Nightray from Pandora Hearts (ANN). Watching Pandora Hearts had kind of on my “anime I should watch” list since it came out, but I never got around to it until this Autumn, when I found out that a friend of mine hadn’t seen any new(-ish) anime since… high school or something. It was sad-as-in-pathetic, so we watched all of Pandora Hearts in two Friday evenings.
Of course, I always go for the tormented (Gilbert) and crazy (Vincent) ones, so these brothers are right up my alley. The series ended at 24 episodes, and my friend found out why Vincent was so insane (and Gilbert so moody) after reading up on the manga, which continues the story. Turns out that it might not be for as great a reason as I hoped, though it’s probably a realistic one. (Haha, no spoilers, guys, even though the series is already like 3 years old or something.)
