The ending got me a little bit.. But I refuse to succumb to cheap emotional manipulation with
and melodramatic music!
I'm not sure whether this show really was about the dystopian society or the relationship between these two guys. I was kinda intrigued that they'd incorporate a gay relationship to a story like this one but in the end it felt more like they just needed to spice up a boring orwellian story with random yaoi. Or perhaps the whole dystopian element should be interpreted as background tension for the development of their relationship. Either way, I think the show should have made a proper choice between these two aspects rather than combining them into one grand story: either there should have been a full focus on the dramatic aspects with the dystopian element left to the background or
the focus should have been on the dystopian society itself. Personally, I would have liked the former better: more realism, more drama, more personal antagonisms, less bombastic elements and preferably an open ending.
