Touka Gettan: Ahhh, my brain hurts

Throughout the series, just as I thought I figured out what the big picture is, it inserts a "clearification" episode and answer some open questions. In my opinion, however, they're "confusion" episodes because answers to some of the questions created more and bigger questions that caused more confusion than before.

When the final episode arrived, I thought "finally I'll get the answer to everything". Well, I kind of did. The problem is, at the same time, it kind of voided many things that I had answers to without leaving any clue for further answers. Throughout the series, there was only one thing I was very positive about: the episodes are laid out in reverse order. The final episode, however, made me to be unsure about that too.

Looking back at it, I don't know how I managed to keep following it. I guess that reverse order is what dragged me along all the way.

I'm still in a puzzling state towards this anime, I really could not describe it. You just have to watch it to understand it. So, let's jump to the score card:

(Full score is 5)

Drama: 4 (Um....I don't even why I'm giving this score, just feel like it should be...)
Comedy: 4 (There are some good comedy in the right place)
Action: N/A
Art/Animation: 4.8 (One other thing kept me watching it is the art work, definately one of my favorite type)
Sound/Music: 4.5 (Some very nice and interesting theme music)
Character: 4 (Can't justify why, just feel like the right score for it)
Plot: * (Um........)
Re-watch value: 4 (It actually holds execelent re-watch value because it literally not understandable first time through)

Overall (not average): * (Maybe I can figure out after I watch it second time through)

Award: Richard's Pick: WTF of 2007

Recommendation: Um...I don't know. I really don't know. I'd say go ahead watch it. If you understand it, please, tell me about it.
