Now this was predictable, the Planetary Gears join forces with the Midsummer’s Knights, and Puck is the final villain here.  BONES, you can’t stay away from cliched endings can you?  The main cast have been fighting these guys since episode 1 and the most likely candidate to become villain isn’t one of them but an A.I. system.  It makes sense but overdone way too often in anime series.  As cliched as this was it doesn’t stop there, he even wants to take over the entire galaxy to become a God.  Wow, this was pretty silly.

One aspect that this show does well at is keeping it refreshing with it’s background designs, as we are always looking at some new setting with this show.  Tanegashima island, the Tenkaido, outer space, city life in Tokyo, Australia and now we are finally at the ship orbiting around Uranus, the home of the Kill-T-Gang!  Loved the designs the animators used here, but right when Puck showed up it slightly killed all aspirations I had for a solid and unique setup for the finale that BONES could have pulled off here.   With one episode left I can definitely see where this is going.  A mecha series that while may be very entertaining one that transitions teenagers to adults with a likely positive outcome for an ending that keeps everyone happy just not Puck.

OVERALL IMPRESSION: 5/10
