Since I finished Steins;Gate a couple of weeks ago and I had seen Robotics;Notes, I figured that I might as well finish the semicolon series off with Chaos;Head. Well I didn't save the best for last. While I liked that the main character was a NEET in training and otaku, there wasn't really anything else of note in the series.
You can tell while watching it that it was sourced from a VN, but the way they handled it was pretty sad. There really was no decent romance, they hinted at one very early on but nothing progressed from there. Instead the focus was on all of the twists and turns you expect from these ; shows, but in this case, the twists and turns were boring. Even the out of left field ones left you thinking "ok, whatever, that's cool that person X that I don't care about has issues, but is it over yet?". They make a big deal over certain details but when the "big reveal" happens, they turn out to be pretty minor. Thus, instead of building you up for the grand finale, you are left apathetic most, if not all of the time.
Can you tell I was underwhelmed?
