The character development is very strong, even though in the case of the two main characters it is very slow.
I can't really draw any parallels to other anime because this one is very much rooted in reality, and reality-based situations.
I guess if you like both of those shows, it's worth a shot watching... Me, I was just too darned bored to keep with it.

I don't watch much Japanese animation and knew nothing much about Gasaraki. I ordered it because I was able to get the entire series for cheap. Read morePublished on August 20, 2009 by James Seger

I can pretty much sum up this anime in one word...cliche. First you have the [bad] corporation vying for world domination. Read morePublished on April 4, 2002 by "vessel314"
