    I loved the story. It had twists and turns, and even some scenes were purely unexpected to me. Though I'm not a professional critic, and I can't judge based on formula or equations, I'll say from my personal experience it's worth a 10.

    40 eps. is a lot: does it keep interesting the whole time, or are there really slow parts too?
    Was there any romance in it?

    I wasn't sure about it when I started watching it, but after watching few more episodes, it got very interesting.

    P.S. I'm glad I watched this. I've enjoyed the story and the characters. Though some parts disappointed me, I still enjoyed it overall.
