English I am now writing down another anime on the list of works that had a lot of potential to appeal to me, but where the potential was criminally wasted by the producers. Subete ga F ni Naru has a promising start, excellent artwork and animation, a fairly decent soundtrack and one of the most excellent openings I have ever had the pleasure of seeing in the world of Japanese animation so far, but unless the director and especially the screenwriter are in luck, it is hard for the audience to get enough of the above for the entire run of the eleven episodes. I can imagine quite well what the subject matter might have looked like in the hands of another production company, just as I can understand the reasons for the success of the book's prequel in Japan. However, its anime adaptation, unfortunately, I cannot help but think of as a screenwriting travesty, which was just exhausting, and the final point – itself otherwise very interesting – was my imaginary deliverance from this journey. I have no idea if the screenwriter was so lazy that the result of his work feels like a slavish rewrite of the book, or if he was simply ignorant of the unwritten rules of movie adaptations, but either way, the creation of so many dysfunctional, and bullshit contentless scenes deserves to be handed a kind of anti-award; to both the screenwriter and director. The director’s absolute lack of feeling for the progression within the plot, obsession with repeating certain scenes to the point of madness, and inability to portray the depth of the characters on screen, who thus appear to the audience as unlikable, irritating, and contrived, should also be duly appreciated. As a result of all of the above, I had an experience similar to that of the other reviewers below: they were thinking the screenwriters were so disinterested in their work the result was just "ahem, okay..." when the killer was revealed, and wanted to fast forward the series, or felt a dire need to shut the characters up. It is a great shame to have so cruelly wasted the potential of the source material, which deserved to have been handled much better. I give it a bland 2 stars. ()

English I think it is good when something is the full package; it looks good, is quite watchable, and sounds good. Unfortunately, it is not enough to present a psychological crime thriller where the viewer gets bored and is not interested in most of it. Plus, if you present the findings and twists so that they do not have to think about them, the result is simply wrong. Furthermore, if you wrap it up in a bunch of philosophizing that kills and destroys any momentum, and so even the interesting things stop being perceived after a while, then something is just wrong again. You might as well have fairly tolerable and fairly believable characters, even though that does not save it. This is true, especially when, as what SonGokussj said in their review on FilmBooster, the characters really behave illogically, and instead of caring about what is going on around them, they focus on themselves and their problems that are quite minor to the plot and philosophize over "a bug's life" again. Well, when the turning point of the entire anime series came, when the perpetrator was to be revealed, the most important moment of this whole murder mystery anime series, and honestly, with this point, it could have been the climax, it was just meh. My impression was expressed with a huge "hmmm," and therefore, the outcome was just a big disappointment. The wasted potential, drawn-out plot with a bunch of crap that completely diluted any momentum and completely killed even a rather interesting (well, in a different version anyway, I am sure) message all let me down badly. So, all in all, I could actually spare myself from writing any more and say that both SonGokussj and Starletka have described it perfectly and accurately. Well, at least I got some practice writing. The ending was not anything too special; at most, there were a couple of quite profound thoughts about the meaning of life, which confirmed to me that this work has some minor philosophical potential, which might appeal to a few intellectuals like the character Souhei Saikawa. However, it is simply not going to impress any viewer who just wants to see a really good murder mystery. 4/10. ()
