I was actually surprised to see negative commentary on this anime, and it made me sad to see that so many people didn't like it. For starters, this show isn't really an action show, per se. It's about characters not fights, which was a huge complaint from most negative reviews. The animation was excellent, good music, the characters weren't masterpieces, but they were good. I personally like the characters and the way they fit into the story. The romance aspect was impeccably done, in my opinion, and dialogue is (for the most part) smooth and real. A good watch.
