This kind of anime I'd say is not for the happy-go-lucky people to watch. It's a drama and a wacky storyline behind it. There were scenes that brought me to tears. I like any anime that can affect me that way, no matter how sick or twisted, because life can be boring at times. This kind of genre is about despertation, as it is stated.

The prequel to Bronze was not good, however compared to this it looks like Gone with the Wind. Though ...
