Rental Magica: Snowball Effect

Currently finished: Episode 11

The plot build up of Rental Magica is a typical example of a snowball build-up, where the series is made of mostly independent subplots; but almost each and every one of these independent subplots is a factor that contributes to the subplot occurs immediately after which is mostly unrelated to the previous subplot.

In this type of plot, we got to witness the domino effect of all previous plots along the way in constrast to the ones that throw anchors throughout the series but you don't get to witness the effects of the anchor until the very end.

New rating (out of 5): 4.0 (net gain: +0.8) Snowball effect
