Good Enough
1 March 2019 | by pennyelenabooksSee all my reviews

Algernon Ni Hanataba O is a drama with a touching story. The first part was really good and the main character was lovable. That part made you want to watch more, to see where the story was headed. The second part, however, was kind of boring. The plot fell in the cliche romance trap and most of the twists were predictable. At least, the ending was realistic and, for me at least, it suited the drama and brought the story back on track. The performances, moreover, where exeptional. So, six out of ten, because the second part was not as good as the first part and the romance was a bit off.
