So likeliness of Amata-Mikono reincarnating is zero now that their souls will be in peace. right? right?
They could have atleast showed zessica getting over Amata or she will get over him.

I think it's suppose to mirror the Apollo/Silvia kiss from the first series, judging by how Mikono looks kinda surprised.

Pretty disapointing end that confirms it was not a deconstruction but all bad pacing, bad characterization, messed up themes and bad writting. And bad romance too.

Still baffled at the pointlessness of Kagura and Zessica's role in all of that.

At least they did get a good end. I believe she'll eventually move on. She will. ;_;

Aquarion Evol: giving hope to bland, boring girls with the personality of a goldfish: they too will find a good looking guy who shall love them and find their lack of personality or capacity endearing.

Basically, what a waste of time :/

Oh my prediction about Apollo-Silvia overlap saving the Amata-Mikono pairing was right after all. Except it didn't save anything.

I usually like happy endings, but I'm really disappointed with the happy ending to EVOL.

You know that for most girls guys like Amata are not attractive at all. You should go read the articles on 'nice guys' in the Heartless Bitches International website.

I wrote somewhere else that with MikonoxAmata they made a failed hybridation with a Shoujo lead (Miss Do nothing DID Mikono) and a shounen lead (Nice guy pushover Amata). Probably expecting to please both female and male viewers and failed terribly at that.

As a female, when I read a shoujo, I want the bland easy to relate to Shoujo lead to score a dude I deem attractive. Amata is not personnality wise, his being the textbook clingy nice guy.

It's the same for male viewer.

The whole thing is made worse by Zessica (perfect waifu) and Kagura (perfect husbando) existence.

Zessica wore her sexy clothes again so it's implied she's going to move on, even if slowly. I don't understand why the show puts her through so much suffering for literally nothing though.

Kagura. I like how you realized your deep love for Mikono couldn't compare to Amata's for her and gave up on getting her in 5 minutes max. That was not sudden at all.

In the end it was mostly Amata who did all the hard work saving Mikono. For the main heroine she didn't do a lot in the final episode did she.

UMMM I'm pretty sure Zessica is wearing a jacket at the end lol pretty much the only one in their normal clothes are Amata, Mikono, Andy and Cayenne lol

That's why I said "good-looking" instead of "attractive" You're absolutely right though, I agree with everything you've said.
Thing is, with Mikono it was always obvious that this is who she was, despite faint hope she would grow above it. That Amata is a wet washcloth only becomes apparent later, so the disappointment is bigger.
Either way, what they did here pleases no one. As a female, I wouldn't want to be with Amata, even if he came for free. Clingy. And if I were a guy, I wouldn't touch someone like Mikono either. Too high maintenance for all the bland. From that standpoint, Zessica and Kagura probably dodged a bullet,which they will be very glad for later on- even if they don't realize it as of yet.

I can't believe they promised no bitter aftertaste and then zoomed in on Zessica's sadface.

Pretty horrible. Even at the end the girl that wanted to overcome uselessness did nothing. In a way (as a character) she also got a crap end. She was nothing but a prize for the MC all along.

I have been attacked on it before, but some people (me included) think that the writting staff were really aware of how flawed Kawamori's idea for the main drama were and they did intentionnally troll him.

The way Zessica is written is particularly telling.

One can think the writting staff was not very happy by the fact the main goodie-goodie pair has to be dragged, going nowhere until the very end, and the pseudo love rivals made to suffer while not having the slightest hint of a chance to begin with. It's pretty obvious nothing good can come of that sort of setting.
