This series had great potential and I really disliked how the last few episodes were. Open-ended love triangle like Macross Frontier, rushed-like ending, plot going through the roof with many holes, etc... It just seemed that ever since the staff changed back around half way, things went down hill.
The series overall had its up and downs. Great on character development, music, animation, etc... but terrible with plot direction. The changes in pace were also sudden for the most part and felt rather awkward watching Dan and co. be ridiculous one episode and completely serious the next. It was an enjoyable series and will give this a 9/10 for originality. We do need more original series like this rather than game/visual novel/manga/light novel adapted stuff and if anything, Shoji Kawamori seems to always do well in that aspect.
On a side, note, anyone want to get me a birthday present? http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/goods/goods_detai...EY=NEOGDS-11855
