It was a disappointing end to a series, but what else can you do?
I dunno. I was expecting a bigger bang to end the fight but I guess Sai Akuto going all super-power and trying to destroy the gods was enough… had they done that right. Throughout the whole episode, I found myself going WTF rather than following along the plotline. Not to mention that Soga Keena’s past relationship with Sai Akuto wasn’t answered, but it turns out that she has an ego. A super ego that messes up memories and whatnot making it almost as if Sai Akuto couldn’t do anything in the end.
All well, Peterhausen sacrificed himself and left a nice part of his horn behind. You will not be forgotten… *who?*
Check out those eyes and tell me that they’re not way too interested in Soga Keena’s body? And speaking of which, she’s not much of a person to hide her nakedness, is she? In short, Keena takes off her clothes way too much but I guess that can be blamed on the producers off this show since they’re the ones who decided to flow along with the “she can’t turn invisible with her clothes on” scheme. Speaking of which, how does she manage to find the exact same clothes all the time? Regardless, Peterhausen just can’t his eyes off her. (Maybe that’s why the horn fell off).
This scene was really messed-up. I thought that initially that these were two cute girls who were the guardians of the gods, or something cliche like that. But it turns out that they’re just robots that spew a bunch of weird crap about the universe, the gods, and whatnot. And if they’re robots, why are they bleeding? Who was the genius that animated this scene and said, “You know what? Let’s make the robots bleed so they can create a more dramatic effect.” Regardless, this episode and series could’ve done without these two uselessly attempting to stop blonde-hair bad-guy and getting sliced midrift.
I’ll probably get in trouble for putting this picture up, but this picture shows the epic-ness of Korone in one shot, and although she doesn’t have a role in this episode nor for the last few episodes, she is still the best character of the show. I wonder if she actually shows feelings towards Sai Akuto since she’s supposed to be an android-type thing after all. Regardless, this is one shot that they did not censor like they normally do with pantsu. Enjoy.
Laser beams!!!!!! Wow, I never thought that at any point of this series, we would be forced to have someone shoot laser beams out of their eyes. It was pretty cool… not. Why on earth would you have Sai Akuto shooting beams from his eyes? Why not have his hands turn blue again and shot beams from that? Or why not grow the purple wings he grows in the opening sequence? And are those beams actually coming from his eyes to defeat those mechanical defense mechanisms placed by the gods? Apparently, the “gods” haven’t seen a decent future space movie where EVERYTHING shoots things from their eyes. Seriously.
Let me tell you why out of these three girls, Hattori is the best. First of all, Soga Keena is an air-headed girl and she clearly doesn’t care whether or not she’s naked in front of others or not. If my girl stripped in front of everyone else, I wouldn’t hesitate to smack her upside the head and take away her rice. She’s seriously addicted to that stuff because she drugged it, simple as that. Secondly, the idol girl is a bad choice because 1) she’s with the Braver guy and 2) she’s really annoying. Yes, she may be an idol but that’s unwanted celebrity fame right there. And plus, being a Demon Lord is already bad enough. Come on, Sai Akuto, marry Hattori Junko.
I wish I paid more attention to when they were explaining the monster blood inside her. Or maybe I wish they explained it a bit more about her past. Regardless, why’d it have to disappear?
Did they ever really explain who this chick was?
Final Impressions: 6.5 / 10.0
I mean, it wasn’t great especially after the hype built up towards the end of the series. After a few “blegh” episodes in the middle with really weird characters, I would have to say that although it was enjoyable, it wasn’t really that great. Plus, look at that artwork fail in the last screencap.
