The first half of this was so good. It was one of the best things I have ever seen, but then they had to F it up, and F it up bad.

It starts simple enough, and when it gets to the point where the Japanese are fleeing through China where everyone wants them dead, it's obviously very dramatic, and it can handle that very well considering the subject matter. But once things calm down they try to drag it on with melodramatic garbage at a point when frankly they should be winding down to a close. At this point they're switching between too many characters scattered around the world. The primal fight to survive is now replaced by overdone personal issues that they try to present as heavy as the former stuff, and it turns into a mess. Then after I was thoroughly disillusioned and thought it couldn't possibly get any worse, they decide to pull out the cheese, and dress everyone up in bad, old people makeup, and go out with sappy fake conversations with ghosts.

This was such a huge disappointment. You should literally just watch the first half and then shut it off and pretend that's all of it. That way this would be one of the best dramas ever.
