Kimikiss Pure Rouge: (Ended) Too......Perfect

I don't really have a problem with stories having perfect ending, as long as it's reasonable. As for Kimikiss, well, the ending is reasonable, but it's just too perfect. Everybody ended up with who they supposed to be (ok, that's up for debate, but I think most people would agree). I'm not saying I didn't like it, I just feel it's been "over-crafted" into the perfect ending. Grant it there are still people getting the shaft, but you could already tell from the very beginning that they were stamped with "fail" ever since the beginning. So, the ending like this just make you feel like you've wasted all this time to see something going towards where you know it's going to end up.

Final Scoreboard (0f 5):

Drama: 4 (It's very planned, but it's still good)
Comedy: 4 (This is not its focus)
Action: N/A
Art/Animation: 3.8 (The constrast is too low)
Sound/Music: 3.5 (Not much impression)
Character: 4.5 (Quantity and quality)
Plot: 3.75 (More surprises would be good)
Ending: 3.75 (Too perfect)
Re-watch value: 2 (Once is enough)

Overall (not average): 4 ~ Despite how it ended, I think it's still a solid series

Recommendation: If you're into animes about relationships, this is for you. If you're into perfect ending, this is also for you. If you're into neither, well, then, watch other stuff on your list before you watch this.
