Nabari no Ou (Ended): Good to Bad

Early on, I had very high expectations for this anime. The result? I'm completely disappointed. I guess higher expectation you have, bigger disappointment you get. I wouldn't exactly call Nabari no Ou bad, it's just that it ended up being way worse than what it started with. The story definitely dragged on for too long. Half way through the series, I stopped to care. It barely had enough going for me to not drop it half way. Also, I guess the last episode suppesed to be the "wrap-up" episode, but it felt more like an useless filler to fill up the time slot for the tv station.

Overall, I think the series had gone from "good" to "suck".

Final scoreboard (out of 5):

Drama: 3.5 (Isn't strong enough)
Comedy: 3 (Faded away)
Action: 3.75 (Some are acceptable, some are pretty cheezy)
Art/Animation: 4.5 (I still like its art work)
Sound/Music: 3 (Didn't leave big impression)
Character: 4 (Whole bunch of emos)
Plot: 3 (Sloooooow)
Ending: 2 (What kind of ending is that?!)

Re-watch value: 1 (Even once is more than enough)

Overall (not average): 3 ~Pass, that's about it

Recommendation: In my opinion, you wouldn't miss much if you just skip this series. Even when you have extra time to burn, I'd recommend other series than this one.
