I watched this, and the rest of the series, based on Face-to-Face recommendations and various reviews from various sites.
This is one of the thinnest most disappointing (worst) series I have ever seen!
The Characters are transparent. Nothing is left to the imagination. No mystery, no suspense. At any point the story and characters could have been more, and various individual character personalities, and storylines, could have been covered and revealed as the series continued.
Maybe this was my problem; the story, and series at large, in no way "Unfolded" it was presented, and within the first few episodes.
The upside was the Shinigami. At least the characters and characteristics were revealed in time, and their story had some substance, some of which was left in reserve and not touched on until into their individual stories.
If your type of Anime is transparent and leaves no suspense, and nothing to the imagination. Then I highly recommend this to you, after having watched and thoroughly considered this series at great lengths, I have found that I would not recommend this series to anyone I know.
overall score: 3/10
