-- This review will NOT contain spoilers -- So I was recently up for watching sad animes. After finishing Clannad After Story and Anohana, I decided to watch Air.
General Opinion: It started off odd yet promising. The characters we're likable and the story seemed intriguing. But as I progressed through the show, I found myself finishing every episode saying "What the F***" in complete shock. And not because the show was surprising. The storyline was filled with plot holes and was jumping from one thing to the other without any logical order. That made the show quite hard to watch.
Summary: Plot: 5/10 Eventually the story was nice, but the franticity was just too much for me. It was hard to follow the story and there were many things I just couldn't understand without consulting the internet. Moreover, there was some stuff in there that were just plain silly.
Animation: 7/10 The animation is vivid and beautiful, although it has an odd touch that makes it look old and unpleasant at times.
Music: 9/10 In one word: beautiful. Especially the Opening theme Tori no Uta.
Emotionality: 7/10 Most of the show wasn't as sad and emotional as I expected, But there was one thing that made me shed a tear, thus i'm giving it 7, and not 4.
Overall: 6/10 Eventually, I believe Key should have added 2 more episodes to the show to fill in the holes in the plot. As a viewer, I can't stand not understanding what I see and not getting an explanation. This show is nice, And if you're thinking whether you should watch it or not, I'd say yes, but try to bear through the hard parts to get to the good slices. But if you want a good emotional anime, try one of the two I mentioned, not Air.
