Myself; Yourself: A Group of Unfortunate People

This is no ordinary drama anime. A story seemed so innocent and light in the beginning, has so many unfortunate events hidden behind it. The write/producer ought to be a cruel person with evil and twisted mind to be able to come up with so many unfortunate lives together at the same place to witness the unfortunate events of each other to be unfolded right in front of their own eyes. That is talent. And I wish I could be talented like that.

Anyway, although the story is surprisingly good (with all the evil and hate). I only wish they didn't have an ending so cheap and uneventful. You could hardly call it an ending. It kind of just silently faded away.

Drama: 4.8 (Great, much better than I originally thought)
Comedy: N/A
Action: N/A
Art/Animation: 4 (Nothing stands out, but I do like them)
Sound/Music: 4 (Other than opening theme song, nothing else left much of impression)
Character: 5 (Almost everybody has an unusually messed up life)
Plot: 5 (Evil, hate, unfortunate lives, you couldn't ask for anything better than that)
Re-watch value: 3.5 (You may want to re-enforce the hate, but I don't think it holds much re-watch value)

Overall (not average): 4(Only if they had a better (by better, I meant more tragic) ending...)

Recommendation: Personally, I love it because of the kind of person I am (see my Dec 20th posting about Myself; Yourself). Some of you might not like it. Some of you might even hate it. So I really couldn't just give a recommendation to every one.
