Plot : The Arcana Famiglia is a powerful organization that keeps the peace on the trading island of Regalo. The most unique trait of this prestigious "family" is their mastery of the Arcana - mystical powers derived from tarot cards. The current leader of the Arcana Famiglia, Mondo, wishes to choose a successor through a tournament called the Arcana Duello, and as added incentive, the winner will take the hand of Mondo's daughter, Felicita. However, two young men among the family - impetuous Liberta and serious-minded Nova - are more interested in protecting Felicita's freedom than letting her be someone's trophy wife. Together, Liberta, Nova and Felicita get to know each other better ... but with Felicita's ability to read minds, she may discover more than she bargained for in Liberta's violent past and Nova's troubled family history. Can the trio remain friends, or will the growing tension between them be too much to bear? (Source: ANN Review by Carlo Santos)

Our Review : Arcana famiglia: An anime that has a good premise, but its lieing to you. its not what it makes it self out to be in the first episode. i honestly thought i found something interesting when i learned this anime was about a mafia tournament. the thing is, in the next 10 episodes just pussy foot around and doesnt get to the tournament until the last episode. And then, it delivers one of the worst endings i have ever seen. Today I review: La Storia della Arcana Famiglia

Story: The story of arcana famiglia at episode 2 starts as a "who will we save today" or " whose past sill we learn about today" . I might have been fine with this if i was only in the beginning . The thing is, they're not executed well. i found myself not immeresed in the story except for a few plot secrets the show had to offer, and when these where explaned, i expected more. The worst part was they hype up this big tournament episdode 1 and never get there till the end. Overall the story is much to be desired. 3/10

Art: This show honestly has a unique art style and gets credit for that. that was one of the big reason i even watched the show. It is very fluid and looks very nice in the actions scenes it has. 8/10

Sound: this is an interesting department for the show, as it sounds great, but never really sticks out. the Opening is something u might actaully watch instead of skipping it every episode. 7/10

Character: L0l@!. the most interesting characters were the ones who never got enough screen time, and while the main characters have some interest, they never truely get developed. they just do what one might expect and nothing really more. that being said, i did like some of the characters 4/10

enjoyment: The only reason i enjoyed this anime even a little is the animation. It just fits the anime . when it come to my enjoyment of the story I kept hoping for more than the show actaully delivered to me. by the end i lost hope and was dissastified. the animation and some of the comedy in the anime is really the only redeming factor for my enjoyment. 5/10

overall: this anime i would put below average and rate it with BAD. the pacing was terrible in the last episode ant left me feeling, "why didnt u span this over the 2nd half of the series. if they had a tournament 6 episodes long. and spent the first 5 episodes with hardcore training, this show could have been something awesome. but overall, it just fails to deliver. 4/10
