Yes, that's it entirely. It was like a *ding ding ding ding!* Here it
is finally! I would agree, there were lots of unnecessary plot
convolutions that lead nowhere. I remember thinking "gee, this story
could have easily been told in 13 episodes rather than 26" And
the "rape" scenes were unnecessary imho. But it was like a feast to a
happiness starved woman, regardless of whether the meat was overdone.
Anyway, I apologize for bringing it up. It wasn't my intention to "beat
a dead horse", but I wanted to know why some folks didn't like it. I
JUST saw the anime recently so to me, it's brand new. As is this group.
