But in this re-watch, I suppose I went with a stronger conviction and more open-minded-ness. My opinion on the story and and characters did not change much, but the overall series made more sense this time. I also noticed that one half is not necessarily more serious and the other more laid back. The first half was more of a set up for the story. Whereas the second half was more of a resolution, and the creators let the characters flourish more. Finally, the ending and conclusion had more than enough closure.
After re-watching Blast of Tempest I bumped up its ranking from 75 to 68. Speaking of my rankings, I placed Patlabor the Television Series on 82. Next week I plan to watch Chihayafuru. See you next time and happy anime viewing.
