I'm a big fan of most of Gainax's work, but I will admit I usually dislike their endings. After completing most of their series, I feel really bummed out and depressed. As you can guess I don't like feeling bummed after watching something intended to entertain me.
I've been delaying watching Mahoromatic for some time now because I hear it's an emotional rollercoaster, and that it easily has one of the most depressing and unsatisfying endings Gainax has ever produced. I've read several reviews of the show, and for the most part people like it, aside from the ending.
What I'd like to know is do the good aspects of the show overshadow the debilitatingly depressing ending or vice versa? Should I watch it or will I regret it and feel terrible for a week? Should I watch the show with a friend/club to lessen the depressing factor? Please give me your impressions of this show. Thanks!!!
