Misuzo is an annoyingly happy and hospitable girl, doing her best to get Yukito to stay at her house and be her friend, including using cunning tricks against her aunt, Haruko. She's like a robot, using Gao every time she's about to cry or troubled, tripping easily, asking a whole bunch of questions, and acting silly which somehow gets people to care about her? What? I mean why would the aunt at first disbelieve Yukito's reasons to stay and then believe him?
Too many tsunderes in the show makes it not that good even if there's fun to be had elsewhere. The amateurish writing makes Air a show that we've felt like we've seen before. Yukito is tsundere, sometimes acting cold and other times, acting likable, making him quite inconsistent.
Misuzu is a butt, at first I thought I would like her but she just turned out more foolish than I expected! She lies, whines and makes a big deal out of small things she could've fixed, constantly stops the world for Yukito just to play with him, unrealistically optimistic and seemed too nice. She also keeps too many secrets! Come on, Misuzu could've been well-executed, too! Being the innocent, childlike girl sounds cool but she needs to grow up!
Characters such as Minagi seem like they serve little purpose but could've been well-executed. I mean, none of the characters are that good, the best is probably Yukito because he can be funny getting annoyed with that annoying Misuzu! The auntie is the cliché of the neglectful caretaker acting like an idiot but then turns caring too fast. Michiru is too loud and obnoxious. And what's the point in Kana?
The history is inconsistent! There was no T.V. 1000 years ago! The show descends into melodrama, which is a bit too much for me, I guess not well-directed. I feel that the series should've shown some of that overly forgetful Misuzu at school! I mean, she takes care of animals? How so?
As for the animation, well, it's beautiful. The series is beautifully produced but Misuzu's eyes when she was crying in the card scene made her look like she was going to fall out! Though, the character design looked dated.
Misuzu's voices the only one annoying? Well, yeah, they're supposed to be. Maybe it's the directors' fault. Michiru's is well... annoying in the dub. Luci Christian is unrecognizable as Haruko.
Too bad that Air is a sub-par series best to watch if you're bored.
