AKA: Arcana Famiglia!

Today I was recommended to watch this anime by a friend in light of the upcoming MCM expo since the characters are easy to dress as, and I must say it was utterly fantastic. Originally I was only planning to watch an episode or two to get a feel of what the character was like incase anyone asked about him, but instead I ended up watching the whole series in one night. Very few anime make me do that, so this one was certainly something special. Basically it's about a 'family' of people that have connections to arcana cards which allow them to use special arcana powers and the exploits they get up to, mainly focussing on a group of three of the younger members and their activities. Not going to lie, I didn't sell that well at all, so here's a description from Wikipedia instead!

There's an organization, called Arcana Famiglia, which protect the island from outside threats and danger. The Famiglia is made up of people who have made contracts with the Arcana cards, and have received special abilities due to this. On his birthday celebration, the "Papa" has decided it's time for him to retire and give up his seat to a new male who has control over an Arcana. To decide who in the "family" gets this seat, he calls for a tournament, called Arcana Duello, between Arcana-users. To the winner, he promises the "Papa" seat, a wish of the winner's choice... And his daughter's hand in marriage. Refusing to accept this, Felicitá decides to fight to choose her own path, with her friends Liberta and Nova fighting for her freedom by her side.
So has anyone watched this yet? It's fairly new - only released September this year, but it's certainly worth watching if you haven't already. But for those of you that have, what did you think of it? Do you think Fel would've chosen? Did you fall in love with Luca? ♥
