Well, there we have it... I can't decide if I like this ending better than the end of the previous chapter, but it does do some necessary wrapping up, and clarifies a few points.

Char Aznable from Gundam is a must, for being such a cool character with genuinely debatable motivations. Also for being an antagonist who gets...

Is it bad that part of me still kind-of wishes someone would properly animate the last arc of Rurouni Kenshin, even though it's never going to happen (obviously Reflections doesn't count)? For that...

I would say that the problem is, as others have said, that you're loading down the word "anime." It's a medium, nothing more, and if the majority of what's being made is shameless, derivative crap......
