Shigofumi: (Ended) Short and Unique

There really isn't much to say about this anime. Sure it's unique, kind of, maybe, but I don't see much value beyond that. Somehow it feels very...half-assed for the most part. Grant it, you want series like this to be short and sweet, but somehow, the way they did it, just doesn't feel quite complete. I mean, I can't point out obvious faults, but I can't seem to appreciate it very much either.

Final Scoreboard (of 5):

Drama: 3.75 (Somewhat, but not enough to make lasting impression)
Comedy: 3.75 (Here and there, quite sporadic)
Action: 3.75 (Very few, but not bad)
Art/Animation: 3.9 (Not my favorite art style, but doens't feel too bad either)
Sound/Music: 3.5 (Not much lasting impression)
Character: 4.25 (I think this is one thing they did do well in)
Plot: 3.9 (Feels somewhat "half-assed")
Ending: 3.5 (Predictible)
Re-watch value: 2 (Very unlikely anybody want to see it again)

Overall (not average): 3.5 ~ Above average for sure, but not much...

Recommendation: Well, this is a hard one. This one is not anywhere near my top recommendation level. However, there are some redeeming values. So, I'd probably put this in front those I say "watch it when you are out of stuff to watch", but behind anything I recommend straight up.
