I finished the final arc half an hour ago and I really would like to give it a 10, but despite loving the finale (despite being too preachy), this adaption had a lot of problems (the art was mediocre, the animation very inconsistent, cutting down character development to the bare essentials, pacing and storytelling awkward at best)... nevertheless, having such a strong source material helped a lot, and is still one of the best anime that can be broadcasted on TV, yet if one can read the book, it is far better. Actually, having read the book was also the biggest obstacle, if I hadn't, I guess that I would have liked the anime a lot more. Should the rest of the author's books get animated though, I hope the producers will choose better staff or a different medium altogether... an indie movie by Tsukamoto Shin'ya and his usual collaborators would be ideal
