Here's the official DVD cover of Jormungand, which is much better than the Blu-Ray one. Unless you don't mind Koko hogging the cover.

If I had to say why I liked this series more than Fate/Zero, I'd have a hard time. The CGI is terrible, the animation isn't all that great, and there's a lack of tension. But man, the comedy in this show is funny. I love the few characters whose names I remember, Koko is enjoyable, and best of all, they're in the show for the majority of the anime. Maybe the Blu-ray will fix the animation problems (they always do).

It's amazing I like the characters as much as I do, because as my history with Joss Whedon, Uncharted, and Burn Notice have shown, I can't stand snarky badass characters, especially when most of the characters have that personality. I honestly don't know why I like these characters.

Wooooow, how late was my realization that Valmet is also Erza Scarlet from Fairy Tail.... When she was yealling at Chen to stand and face her, Erza's voice just shone through...and my ineptness was made known to me...
*puts on the Cone of Shame and huddles in the corner*

But I must say, I am tickled by the Jonah x Valmet angle. Just seems so damn cute.

Man, I loved that assassin group. They were pretty funny, esp Liliane and Dominque(well, in a different way from Lily). I guess the sound of flesh being torn apart was just us being trolled, which kind of irks me =0\.

The part I was more interested in was Valmet and Jonah. That part was pretty good. The expressions on Val's face when she finally reached Chen was kinda chilling; a look of excitement and happiness, even though it was for revenge. Then, when Karen found them and started shooting, with that music, and Karen shooting multiple times, I thought Valmet was done for (T.T). Yeah, I know that the 2nd~3rd most fav char in this show wouldn't die so easily, but I just got swept in the moment. When Koko said that Jonah had applied first aid for Valmet, which saved her life, I was surprised that Karen was alive too, so I'm guessing Jonah gave her first aid as well. Why would he save Karen's life after she just shot Valmet?

I liked the comparison used by Koko about Valmet's hair. When they both met, their hair was short, but eventually, their hair both grew to be long. I guess Koko signifies that as proof of the time they've been with each other. Or, she could just like long hair (>.>)...

Minor notes;
- Jonah getting a kiss while he was sleeping with drool on his face = so cute X03.
- Karen's body > Valmet's body
- There was a scene where they show Koko's and Jonah's eyes that stood out; Koko's is a deep blue, while Jonah's is a crimson red.

Sexy and badass!

You know....he IS an old man with a damaged leg going up against a sharpened killer at least 30 years younger than him and in peak physical condition....

Not much of a fight I wager...

To be honest I think it would've been much better if Karen and Valmet had died right there but oh well. Good episode nonetheless.

Moral of the story: Don't fuck with the Finns...

I think it's 24, but I didn't bother listening to it.

I'm looking for the piano theme back in the episode where Dr. Riviere talks about the situation in the Balkans.

Well if anybody is looking for that piano song that was in the latest episode, it's called Meu Mundo Amor.

This season finale was a bit frustrating for me.
I fear that this series has become "Nobody dies in Jormungand except villains".
First they teased us with Ugo's death then with Valmet's. BTW I hope she was wearing a bulletproof vest because there's no way she survived multiple shots otherwise.
I also found OOC for Jonah to spare an adult enemy combatant. Not to mention the risk Koko took by putting Karen in the same room as Valmet.
Jormungand isn't famous for its realism but I don't know... some scenes in this episode just irked me.
On a positive note, Valmet's knife-fu was absolutely amazing.

It's Track 24, the very last one of the soundtrack, and the song's actual name is Time to Attack though I'm sure a lot of people will remember it as "Koko is loco."

The reveal at the end of the episode fell flat, since we barely know R at all. It would have had a lot more impact if the spy had been a member of the team who had more than 5 minutes of screentime this whole season.

Valmet was amazing as always. I hope she won't fade into the background next season now that her storyline has been resolved. Can't get enough of her badass fighting style and her lesbian antics.
