Finally watched this ‘classic’. I was surprised this show got me hooked pretty early on and I think until ep 75 it only got better with every episode. Really loved it! Then, in comparison to the first half, the second half’s story was pretty bad. It was like ‘We need a reason why that happens. Ah okay, then we just give the already overpowered character one more power’. I’m not sure if I would have dropped or skipped that arc if it were not for some cool new characters. Also, in my opinion the end is semi-satisfying in many aspects but of course that is a matter of taste.
So I would give the first half a really high score and the second half a considerably smaller one. Would be interested to know if someone has a different/opposing opinion, though.
