I will have my final impressions for this series, and Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii up sometime tomorrow. It’s nice to have some time set aside to catch up on these anime, it feels like forever since I’ve watched Soredemo and even Mushishi.
Like I said previously I had a feeling the ending would be predictable, typical BONES material and very normal for an Igarashi series. Seriously this reminded me yet again how similar Captain Earth really is to Star Driver.
The way that BONES animated this, all of it had such fluid animation I was really impressed with this! Did their entire budget go towards the first 2 episodes, and this one, because this was very good. Hana became the destined damsel in distress, one that I’m sure everyone saw coming here, and was manipulated by Puck in order to establish some drama between Daichi’s love, and saving Earth.
Though, I should have known the telepathic kiss would be the straw that broke the camel’s back here, releasing Hana from Puck’s grasp and inevitably creating a happy ending for this show. I would have to say the most surprising part of this entire episode was the fact that Amara in order to save Moco from dying would sacrifice his ego block, and the writers even pushed this just a bit further by having all the Kill-T-Gang members destroying theirs as well! Was it just me or did the fight against Puck towards the beginning look exactly like the ending fight in Star Driver?
OVERALL IMPRESSION: 6/10
