Burst Angel - Review

I got into a show called Burst Angel a few days ago. It's pretty short, one season, about 12 hours total. It was entertaining enough that I powered through it in 3 days. Problem is, I just watched the ending.

To summarize, the show basically ends with all the main characters, all the secondary characters, and everyone in the entire city of Tokyo dying, with the sole exception of one of the two main characters who in the previous scene got her heart broken, and is in the end left crying and alone on a random beach.

No surprise happy ending. Just one broken-hearted character surrounded by a destroyed city. I'm a tad bit pissed off, to put it mildly. I wasted 12 hours, not to mention emotional connection with characters, only to have them all die. What was the point of any of the episodes previously, they should have just put the gun in their mouths on episode one and saved all the trouble.

Only upside, it did have some really good music. Might try and find the soundtrack.
