I'll be the turd in the punch bowl then and only give this a 9 out of 10. Yes, it has all the great features that everyone else is posting about. Yes, it is my favorite show from a season that had a couple of other shows that were AOTY quality. However, I do think this was flawed in that the central mystery went absolutely nowhere. You can argue that is because this is just the beginning of the story. Which is a fair point, but that doesn't change that the future of an anime is uncertain so with no guarantee of future seasons this still makes for an overall unsatisfying plot. I don't expect all of the answers, but the last episode just raises ten more questions while only hinting at answers.
