This anime is so great at building momentum and anticipation. Really love it. I didn't think of anything for Jervis being the DLL until at least episode 30. The ending were well-deserved and totally worth watching!! I gave this anime 4.5/5.

Knew it for certain in the episode when Jarvis goes to meet Julia on the balcony in New York and his shadow has huge legs!

Can't say Jervis being daddy was a huge surprise but I'm happy with how everything turned out. Easy 8 or 9/10 for this series as it was perhaps the best coming of age story I've ever seen. The cast was phenomenal with every character being portrayed very realistically, colorfully and memorably. The development that both Judy and Julia went through by the end was absolutely insane. Super happy with Daddy Long Legs. Julia for best tsundere in anime apart of Asuka??

Bit disappointing that the finale was mostly recap, but Jervis being John Smith wasn't exactly surprising as he'd show up every time Judy wrote about her troubles to John Smith.

The drama was a bit too much at times which is what's stopping me from giving it a 10.

So I had to spoil it for myself before I even started the anime and already knew who daddy long legs was which seemed to ruin the fun in a way but it was still overall great I'm glad I picked up this anime

Episode 14 was where the story became inconsistent and Judy's periodical depressions started to appear. Dramatization.

And still, Bill will live on.
He will befriend the next inhabitants of the earth, beings of light who revere him as a god.
And Bill will outlive them all... for millions and millions of years...exploring, learning, living,
until the earth is swallowed beneath his feet.
Until the sun is long since gone.
Until time loses all meaning and the moment comes that he knows only the positions of the stars
and sees them whether his eyes are closed or open.
Until he forgets his name and the place where he'd once come from.
He lives and he lives until all of the lights go out.

I'm kind of stunned that people were even slightly surprised that Jervis = John Smith.

A solid series like pretty much all WMT anime i've seen however the romantic aspect was too much for my liking.
I can acknowledge Judy's growth (and Julia's etc.) but sadly she never quite grew on me as a character. Which is probably why I felt like these last ~10 episodes or so with the romantic subplot bought down my enjoyment.
Judy's not the most dramatic lead i've seen, but for some reason she grates on me more than others.

Series was not without its fair share of flaws but it was solid nonetheless.
Judy is one of the best characters I've seen since a long time.
