Story:

This was actually a pretty good watch, my one real complaint would be the ending, it left just a few too many loose ends in my opinion. Well maybe only one major one and a few minor but the major one was the problem, and no I will not go into details because it would be a spoiler.

Animation:

Great artwork, nice character designs, no rainbow hair colors, realistic hair styles, decent city design, realistic vehicles... there wasn't anything bad about it for the most part. I guess it's main issues is that it didn't wow me or I would have put it at a perfect 10. After shows like Clannad and it'd ilk, it's not easy to wow me anymore :P

Sounds:

Average at best, I did notice a couple points where the music ended abruptly at a scene change causing a flow problem but it's a minor gripe so I didn't really deduct points. I didn't care about the OP or ED so no additional points for that either.

Characters:

Some really great characters in here, many of which did do some development but not really growth. The main villain I really wanted to slug at the end... glad someone got around to doing it, then I really wanted to kill him......... Point is, characters were what I thought they should be, didn't always do what I expected them to, and some came at me completely sideways.

Overall:

I'd like to say this was a top anime, one to really watch and enjoy for just about everyone. Sadly there were a few problems with it that left me wanting to fix them. I can't really say what these problems are because they would be spoilers but we'll just say some things were left unfinished, and a few of them were kind of major in my book. Either way, this was a good show, I did enjoy it for the most part, and I can't say I was upset at how things finished. You could waste your time on something much much worse.
