C: The Money of Soul and Possibility Control started off with a strong first impression. The first episode was pretty confusing, but that was part of its charm. The next few episodes started to explain what was really going on – what are assets, deals and the mechanics of the Financial District. Unfortunately, that’s where it started to crumble.
There just wasn’t anymore excitement after the first episode. There wasn’t any deeper meaning to everything that you might expect. The few “secrets” that the show tried to hide were pretty dull and nothing compared to what the first episode showed.
C was still interesting, of course, but by comparison, it started off at the top of the mountain and began to roll downwards, getting faster and faster as it reaches the bottom. That was what the final episode felt like. Despite what the ending tried to portray, it felt meaningless to me. It was a poor ending, one that could have been easily salvaged when Masakaki re-appeared, but wasn’t.
Perhaps there will be an extra special episode or OAV series that could tie up the series better, since it was left kinda hanging.
