[Ended] Fortune Arterial: Akai Yakusoku: Terrible, Terrible Ending

It seems that it has become a common disease for H-Game adapted animes to end terribly: they more or less cornered themselves by making everything indicate it's going to be a "no happy way out" ending, then they just blatantly cut a big hole in the net they surrounded themselves with and cheat their way to finish line with an ending that doesn't make much sense what so ever. I hate that.

Everything in this anime resembles a typical H-Game adapted anime. While it's not a bad one, it's nowhere near the good ones like Shuffle! in terms of quality. In fact, I'd almost put it down as a "background noise" anime except once a while there are parts randomly scattered throughout the series that you need to catch to follow the main plot. As for the plot, it's more or less a cookie cutter H-Game plot with stupid ending.

Final scoreboard:

Drama: 80 (Kind of)
Comedy: 73 (Not that great)
Action: N/A
Art/Animation: 81 (H-Game Style)
Sound/Music: 83 (Not bad)
Character: 73 (Only the important few are developed)
Plot: 73 (Cookie cutter)
Ending: 68 (Bad, bad, bad)

Re-watch value: 20 (No)

Overall: 78 - Ok story, terrible ending

Recommendation: Unless you have too much time to waste, it's ok to skip this one.
