I think melodrama is a fairer description. The kind you get with GaoGaiGar and Mazinkaizer that isn't painful at all, but amusing and fun.

I'm thinking more and more that Setsuna may be one of the great anime characters.

As for holes, I think I need a couple of weeks' rest, since there are going to be too many shows to watch starting at the beginning of April. But I will miss Kyoushirou Fridays. As Densetsu Tsubasa said, the time passed so quickly.

In my opinion, Ku is still an Absolute Angel even in her reincarnation because she is able to recall her memories from her previous life. Kyoshiro is human, so the last scene in which Ku and Kyoshiro embrace is imaginary and for the viewers to see that the two lovers are reunited, while in reality it's probably still a little girl hugging a grown man.

With Ku being an Absolute Angel and all, she may have the power to speed time (for herself) and reverse time (for Kyoshiro) for them to return to their 17-year-old bodies, but that's unlikely.

So Kyoshiro to Towa no Sora ends on a lolikon note...lovely.

Episode 12 - Kuu of Eternity

Kyoshiro to Towa no Sora is my first pick for the winter season, and I finally watched the last episode. But in order to comprehend the dialogues spoken, I will have to wait a few days for a sub to be available.

My verdict is that this Kaishaku series while starting with a slow beginning and quite a couple of nonsensical episodes, it basked on a great wave of drama campiness from halfway until the very end.

That it was fairy campy anime to me it doesn't mean that it was bad. Quite on the contrary, they paid special attention to the character's dramatization in the very last episodes.

If the conclusion had its downs, they were the following listed below.
Spoiler:


That's all I have to say for the downs, and now with the ups.
Spoiler:


With how the previous two episodes were developing I was afraid that the writers would have taken the choice of sacrificing Setsuna for Kyoshiro's sake with respect to Kuu. Had they done that, then I would have become enraged.

IMO, Setsuna is the most tragic of all characters tied along with Mika.

The animation was so terribly gorgeous, that Setsuna's wavering eyes and sad look on her face won me over. She was so sweetly charming and captivating.

I would really want to request as a favor from anybody to make some gifs or avatars of Setsunas' shots for this episode.
Spoiler:


Spoiler for My interpretation for the last scene:


And one more thing. Oh, my! How many times did I hear Kyoshiro delivering the infamous line- ikou, issho ni-over and over even at the very end?

I cannot believe that was the line delivered at the end of the show.

I am telling you that if I ever hear another ikou, issho ni, then I will knock out myself cold.

Wait! Oh, My God!! I remember that same line was repeated in another anime.

More like seven years, actually. Ku is back to being the same age as she 'was' in her first encounter with her 'Prince', which is 10 years prior to the main timeline of the story, when she is 17, assuming that her reincarnation is born very shortly after her death. That puts Kyoshiro at 24... Uhh. Then they have to wait another 10 years for Ku to become 17 again... Uhh.

C'mon, Ku, speed up time for yourself. A 17-year-old being with a 34-year-old man isn't that pretty of a picture, even if Kyoshiro is TEH SEX himself. I'd probably twitch at that spectacle if some epilogue-of-epilogue episode gets released on the last DVD.

Mm. So I just finished watching the English sub.
Spoiler:

I'm still happy though, since the ending was pretty sweet. And also that we got to hear the second verse of Madoromi no Rakuen.

In the end, Kyoushiro becomes a phedophile. Setsuna still becoming his secretery obssesed over him. What a sweet ending.

Kaon and Himeko back to their yuri way of life.
Soujiro being big police cheif.
Kazuya being a vegetable next to a steel woman with a heart.

This can never beat KnM.

I think Kaishaku got pressured over anti-yuri sentiments.

So it's done huh? This will be my 3rd anime I finished this year (Kanon (2006) and Pumpkin Scissors were finished first). Yup, the hole is getting bigger. Code Geass is almost at the end too I think. What to do what to do? Oh well, I guess it's time to look and wait for new animes .
