Minna! Esper Dayo! eps 11+12

So it ends not with a bang or a whimper but with a WTF is Sono Sion trying to accomplish here?!

Besides creating the most fun to screencap dorama next to Jyouou, that is. Note to self, maybe its time to watch Jyouou 3.

The worst thing a dorama can do is tease you with its many directions but never really go anyway and that is Minna! Esper Dayo!

Its not a team esper dorama cause he didn't spend enough time on building them up as a team.

Nor is it a sankaku kankei dorama cause that story just comes and goes without going anywhere interesting. The Sae is an esper revelation should have been a big deal.

Try mapping out Kamogawa's journey that doesn't go anywhere.

This dorama can't possibly be about powers as an analogy for social outcast?

Minna! Esper Dayo does a bit of everything of the above but doesn't have a backbone unless you consider panchira.

I didn't really care about what was happening and didn't have a reason to with the non ending.

I was looking back at my reviews trying to figure out how many bad episodes out of 12 and the common thing I was writing was that I was waiting for it to go somewhere interesting.

By my count, eps 1-5 and 10 are good and the rest are crap.
I wish I knew what Sono Sion saw in the manga that made him want to adapt it.

maybe a prequel to a 6 hour movie trilogy mike. i dont know about the english subs but it stopped at episode 4 or 5. maybe the one who subbed this show felt lost also.

That's what it felt like with the non-ending. However, his next movie after Why Don't you play in Hell? is Tokyo Tribe.
