World Destruction (Ended):Nice

If I say I'm not surprised by the ending, I'd be lying. However, if I say I didn't see it coming, I'd be lying, too. On and off, episode by episode, it slowly hinted what truth lies behind the surface. It's in fact a very interesting story. It's not as impacting as Macross Frontier, nor as deceiving as Denno Coil, nor as emotional as Natsume Yuujinchou. But with the mixture just right, I'd say World Destruction is still in the top quarter among all animes I've seen this year.

Final scoreboard (out of 5):

Drama: 4 (Definitely good)
Comedy: N/A
Action: 3.5 (A little cheesy, but not too bad)
Art/Animation: 4 (Unique)
Sound/Music: 4 (I liked it)
Character: 4 (an interesting set)
Plot: 4 (Little surprises, but not too much)
Ending: 4.5 (Though I like tragic endings, this one is also acceptable)

Re-watch value: 2 (When the hidden factor is gone, it's really not worth it to watch again)

Overall (not average): 4 ~ Solid

Recommendation: Well, if you are a casual anime watcher, I'd say pick this one up, but not with very high priority. If you are a hardcore anime watcher like me, this should be in top half of your to watch list.
