I guess many try to relate this to the original from genshiki and were disappointed. I only watched the first episode of the original ova and I didn't watch genshiki. Comparing to the first episode of the ova, the quality of this TV series is actually much better in every aspect. In any case, 5.4 stars is outrageous underrate. As a short series, I found it very enjoyable and actually is even better than many recently over rated series (no. 6 and anohana, for example). The ending itself is quite predictable (honestly, very few animes are not predictable these days) but is handled cleverly. It is probably quite hard to remake the same ending better than the current last episode. As always, Tsutomu Mizushima is very skillful in using background to tell a good story indirectly. There are light jokes over the entire series but they don't go overboard. It keeps a consistent slightly dark mood and I think it suits this series a lot. One can see the shadow of Mizushima's directing especially near the last several episodes, which kinds of remind me of how he handles the last several episodes of bokusatsu tenshi. But overall, the series remind me more of ookikufuri kabute.
