It all started great, then went downhill from like episode 6 (Guu has started to be nice, albeit in her own way. A mistake nevertheless). Then every episode we saw attempts to reach that level and every attempt failed. We saw some moments that could provide a good laugh but the majority of the time was boring, sometimes cheesy, sometimes ridiculous. The so-called end didn't even conclude anything. To sum it up, this series feeds on the glory of the marvelous first few episodes.

I agree with you, Baphomet, except for two things: I never thought it was all that great to begin with, and I really liked the end. I heard from someone that this was the funniest show in the whole world, but it seems like I can't trust other people's senses of humor.

You are both right!

Guu was the only character out of the bunch who had a real personality.

I didn't have any expectations for this series and I let the show's pacing take me where it will. I enjoyed the funny moments where I found them and moved on when I didn't get the humor. Overall it was very good by my book.

I teared up a bit near the ending since I haven't seen my own mother for some time now, made me feel like packing my bags and going home for a while.

A real gem of a series. Fantastic characters, great humour. K-On! is a very different genre, calm and gently amusing. Lucky Star is somewhere in between the two.

Not bad, but the story isn't concluded at all. Thank goodness there are more episodes after this, the many questions still left.

I respect your opinion as long as you respect mine.

Ta-da! Here we are, ladies and gentlemen! The end of Hare+Guu!

Well, to be frank, the majority of the characters really didn't click with me personally; they generally didn't matter and/or they failed to impact me in any way. The cast is quirky and fairly likable with nothing of note beyond that, the exceptions being Weda, Dr. Clive, and (of course) Guu.

As for Hare, the little shit has never failed to piss me off. The majority of his screen time is spent nagging others, noisily invading the personal space of other people, harboring a rather lethal Oedipus Complex (as Guu has stated on multiple occasions) and never maturing beyond that point. If there's one aspect of this series that people can easily criticize, they'll more than likely point to Hare.

In spite of that, Hare+Guu is among the most visually creative works I've ever seen; sure, it's entirely centered on one theme, that of the importance of familial bonds, but the show does commendably at doing so. And, at its best, Hare+Guu is one of the most consistently hilarious shows of all time.

It's still one hell of a show....... even if its finale is atrocious at settling loose ends.
