Allison and Lillia: So...where is Lillia?

Currently finished: Episode 11

The story is on and probably approaching the end of the third segment of the series, yet we still have no clue who Lillia, the other person named in the anime's title, is. After a quick dig into animenewsnetwork.com, I found that this anime is actually based on two separate manga series that are written and illustrated by same people. One is called Allison, the other called Lillia & Treize. That explains why it's been almost half way through and we still have no clue who Lillia is.

The art of this anime is not among my favorites. The pace of the anime is not exactly fast. However, the director knows how to properly use cliffhangers, which has been the main reason that I haven't dropped it. Gotta give it bonus for that.

New rating (out of 5): 4.2 (net gain: +0.2) ~ very good use of cliffhangers
