[Ended] Jormungand Perfect Order: Far-Fetched?

As a shoot-'em-up style action anime, it sure has gotten a bit complicated in this second half of the story. Unlike Black Lagoon, where the biggest event involves nothing bigger than a third world country, Jormungand's stage is the entire world. While the first season looked somewhat of a small play of an international arms dealer, the second season suddenly upgraded to a conspiracy to literally dominate the world. The method it was using, in my opinion, is a bit far-fetched. But then, if you put it up against the psychopath twin kids assassins, it really isn't as far-fetched it seems.

Final Scoreboard:

Drama: 88 (Somewhat)
Comedy: N/A
Action: 98 (Top-notch)
Art/Animation: 88 (So so)
Sound/Music: 89 (Good theme)
Character: 85 (A bit overly exaggerated)
Plot: 87 (Little far-fetched)
Ending: 90 (Ended)

Re-watch value: 60 - Still interesting to certain degree

Overall: 90 - Action Drama of the Year

Recommendation: Overall, Jormungand is a good concept with a very good execution. Even though the concept is bit on the far end of the acceptable spectrum, in my opinion, it doesn't really hurt the story itself much. If there's one action anime you watch in 2012, Jormungand would be it. Because it is

2012 Action Drama of the Year
