[Ended] Skip Beat: More, I Want More

This is the best show biz anime I've seen since Kaleido Star. Glass Mask was ok, but it was a bit too technical, and it wasn't comedy. As I mentioned in previous posts that this anime is a blend of many things with nearly perfect balance between the comedy and drama, I think this is one of the perfect example for what defines a comedy-drama.

It's really hard to describe the exact nature of this anime without spoiling anything, so I'm not going to waste my time and just going to tell you that you should watch it because it is great.

The only thing wasn't quite satisfactory is that the ending is completely open. Depending on how you look at it, it may be a good thing or bad thing. It is bad because open endings sucks, but it would be good if making sequels is what they intended for this ending. I would definitely like to see another season of this.

Drama: 90 (Loads and loads..)
Comedy: 95 (Some of the best comedy I've seen lately)
Action: N/A
Art/Animation: 93 (Great usage of deformation)
Sound/Music: 80 (Not bad, but didn't leave too much impression either)
Character: 95 (This is where it shines)
Plot: 93 (Very interesting)
Ending: 70 (Not really one)

Re-watch value: 80 (I think it would still be funny second time around...)

Overall (not average): 94 ~ Defines Comedy-Drama Genre

Award: Comedy-Drama Anime of the Season for October 2008 Season

Recommendation: Watch it, watch it, watch it.
