I had this on my computer because I was told it was supposed to be a good anime.
I hadn't gotten around to watching it yet though, but now that I have forced myself to view it to the end... What a mess. How was this supposed to be highly recommended?

The story is one big mess, there are a whole lot of subjects introduced and then, oh never mind, let's go to something else. Characters are introduced by name, but because they're in such a hurry to make this work in just 11 episodes, they don't bother giving them any depth...
There are just SOOO many missed chances and yet, I couldn't even be bothered even if they had put some more character depth into this, because the whole setting is still rubbish.
You don't need to be a genius to figure out letting large amounts of money suddenly appear 'to support the economy', of course that is going to have a negative effect on the value of your currency. And yet...

Animation. WHY THE CG?! It looks horrible!! What a cheap and ugly trick! Most of the normal animation is pretty good, but the computer generated people, even the main characters, are just plain ugly when they decide to make the switch to CG for a bit. If you don't have the budget to do it right, don't do it at all!

I can't help but get the feeling this was something that was just slabbed together as fast as possible to somehow answer to a certain trend or something. I have no idea what trend they answered though and no idea why it needed to be done like this.
Sure, there are a few nice visuals and they even did try to force in a few moments to get your sympathy for the characters, but it's exactly that. Forced.

I really had to force myself to keep watching, because I was hoping at some point the high recommendations for this anime would be justified, but it never happened. It just got worse and made less and less sense if you really stop to think about it.

2/10 story
5/10 animation
7/10 sound
2/10 characters
4/10 overall

I was told to watch it by my boyfriend and his male friend. "Only girls find them amazing" --> nope.

By golly! You're right! It was a girl! XDSeriously, I had forgotten because it was long ago, but now that you mention it, I was talking with a girl on one of the FB clones and were exchanging suggestions for anime titles.Evenso, the average rating for this anime on here isn't bad either... So still surprised...

This is a NoitaminA show. Only girls find them amazing even when they are horrible. Check those who recommended it to find out if it's true.
