Too bad the ending, or lack thereof, is so aggravating

Aggravating? Don't you mean glorious, deeply moving, and wonderful? Seriously, though, I understand where you might be coming from, and can only recommend going back and reading the part of this thread where we discussed the ending in excruciating detail, enabling many of us (not all) to realize we loved it. At first, I was disappointed not to get more obvious closure, then I realized I liked the mystery and glory that I did get better than a dead wrapping up of everything in a neat package. And there are quite a few explanations in the thread, if anything isn't clear to you (starting around here, and going for many pages).

It also helps to deliberate on just what the real story in the show is. The show is not about the Simoun, the other nations, or even the war - it's about girls growing up. Taken as that, I think the ending was one of the best I've ever seen.
Of course, if the show had been about all that other stuff, then yeah, major suckage. Fortunately it wasn't.

It sounds like the general concensus to me was that it was the proper and appropriate ending to the series, rather than anything groundbreaking or spectacular. Of course that always beats an ending that comes out of nowhere and makes absolutely no sense. The one guy Matrim said he'd give it a 9/10 for tugging at the viewers emotions and a 3 for plot resolution. I get the impression the series is more about the characters than plot though.

I mean I haven't seen the series yet, but it sounds like one of those endings that splits the audience right down the middle with those who are satisfied and those who think they could have done a bit more to tie up the loose ends, sometimes even causing people to hold two simultaneous opinions. All in all it makes a great "Water Cooler" conversation, which is probably more or less what they were going for.

A bit too late for that now, since the series is over.

Natch.

Some of the main staff of Simoun is bringing out a new anime next month. Actually, it's all the main staff of Yami to Boshi to Hon no Tabibito, which includes Simoun's Nishida Asako (character designer/animation director) and Tsujitani Kouji (sound director).

The new show is Touka Gettan 桃華月憚 (AS thread, ANN page, official site, staff blog). Like Yamibo, it is based on an adult PC game by Carnelian. It starts on the night of Monday 2 April, at 1:30 am. The game is being released the same week.

The director and writer are both good. The director will be Yamaguchi Yuji, who directed Yamibo and Strawberry Eggs. The writer will be Mochizuki Tomomi, who directed Zettai Shounen (an excellent show) and YKK, and wrote Yamibo.

The only seiyuu from Simoun in the new show will be Yukana (Dominura) and Kitamura Eri (Amuria, Saya in Blood+), but other cast members include best new seiyuu nominee Kobayashi Yu (Setsuna in Negima), and Fujimura Ayumi (Karada in Asatte no Houkou), as well as two newcomers. I trust Tsujitani Kouji to get good performances from them. Here's a publicity shot:



Nishida Asako has mentioned the new show on her blog, but since they aren't her original designs, I don't think the project is as close to her heart as Simoun, for which she keeps creating new drawings. Check her home page, especially the "gallery". Her "scrapbook" has links to new adults-only images of Aaeru and Limone. There is an interesting and maybe also slightly un-worksafe drawing of Limone at 17 here. I think the caption says that it shows Limone when she is deciding how to understand everything: religion, prayer, love, her partner, sacrifice, her desires.... "Did Simulacrum and Tempus Patium begin from Dominura, or from her?"

By the way, Tsujitani Kouji, the sound director of Simoun and the new show, will also appear as a seiyuu this season, in the show Seirei no Moribito. Tsujitani-sensei is one of the few sound directors who comes from the ranks of seiyuu. He played The Irresponsible Captain Tylor in the show of that name. Since one of the sound director's jobs is usually to direct the seiyuu, it seems this gives him something special. Morinaga Rika, for one, commented how much she enjoyed working with him. He and Nishida Asako also worked on Fate/Stay Night.

Hah. Here I am, the latecomer...

But I have a theory and I want to share it. Maybe someone else came to the same conclusion?
