Kannagi Update

Finally went back and finished watching Kannagi; in fact, it's been so long that I simply started again from the beginning.  Caught up on the final episodes last night while baby-sitting a new server.

It went in a different direction from what I was expecting, and was a bit uneven overall, but still earns three supernatural schoolgirls out of four.  (By comparison, Shana and Haruhi each get 3.5, and Kamichu! gets 5.)

The ending itself wasn't as strong as it might have been - again, uneven - but the very last bit, with Tsugumi, was perfect.

Well worth a watch.  A level 2 teenage angst warning applies.

1 Yeah, an uneven show all around. Wacky supernatural hijinks, then wacky otaku-referential comedy, then a hard right into the Pointless Angst zone... Had some good jokes, though.

2 I wouldn't say pointless angst - angst was meaningful and completely understandable, though acted like a teenager.  Well, okay, he is a teenager.  Still...

I enjoyed it, but it failed of greatness due to the uneven directing.  Very likeable cast of characters, great OP, great first ep, good exploration of the theme, but too much floundering in the middle.
