April 2007 New Anime - Short season wrap up

Shinkyoku Soukai Polyphonica

Comments: It's over?!!! At episode 12! I did not expect it to end like this. While I generally don't have problem with short series, I do with this one. Granted it does have a somewhat climax, and a small build up (about 2 episodes), it's just not enough (to justify the first 10 episodes of garbles). I can see how the first 10 episodes are useful for building up to the climax, but the climax itself, in my opinion, is just too quick and too short. When a serie has a grant plot to build but doesn't want to make it too obvious, some medium to low quaility episodes occuring in the middle is acceptable. But when the final climax is short like this, those garble episodes just complete bring down the quality of the whole series.

Although I did somewhat enjoyed the series, I'm not going to tag this one as recommended to watch.
Final Rating:
Drama: 3.5 out of 5
Comedy: N/A
Action: 3.5 out of 5
Art/Animation: 3.75 out of 5
Sound/Music: 4 out of 5
Character: 3.5 out of 5
Re-watch value: 1.5 out of 5

Overall (not average): 3.25 out of 5

Recommendation: Watch it if you don't have anything better to watch.
