The series started out slow for me, so I wasn't very expectant of this one at first. I had no prior feedback other than reading the back of the DVD package. But... I must say I was pleasantly surprised when the story started to pick up and I realized it was not the cookie-cutter high school love triangle at all!
I love the highly introspective narrative approach. Each other characters have depth expressed in nuances like an easily overlooked statement or a look, and all of that seem to somehow come together at the end of every arc or episode and suddenly everything seems so clear
. The pace is unhurried but every now and then there's a surprising snatch of dialogue that makes me go "oh!"
Now I can see why it racked up so many awards a few years back. Needless to say, this is highly recommended from me. ^_^v
