Yeah, I heard it had great animation and music. But people generally praised the plot online. They were of the opinion that this is like the dark souls of anime - it rewards you with patience. Everybody said it got boring in a few places but everything ultimately falls into place nicely.
Either way, I'll give it a shot sometime. Also, holy crap lappy, you've seen so many anime. How many years have you been watching anime?
Holy **** Lappy the scandal arc (gin sleeping with otose; that one!). THAT WAS FREAKIN' HILARIOUS. HAVEN'T LAUGHED THIS MUCH IN A WHILE. XD; Are you up to date with the manga? Seen the trailer for the newest movie? What do you think; is it really the end for the anime?
