yeah too bad it would be a long wait for the sequel... as for a non-LN Densetsu reader I need to switch and read the LN from the start.

thanks to Defade and Larethian for giving such effort and i appreciate it *reads more spoilers @LN thread*

ohh can't wait for the BDs too

you're welcome, and sorry I'm not translating "from the start". It's too much work, unless there are a few more translators. I'm mostly translating the sequel while Defade is mostly translating the short stories for background knowledge. one day I might get back to it, but it will be at a very casual pace and I'll probably be working on something newer then, ie. other LNs.

Last Episode

Spoiler for Last Ep:


All in all, I've really enjoyed this series. It has some really powerful undercurrents that you don't find in a lot of stories anymore, which made it very enjoyable, albeit hard sometimes, for me to watch.

Also, I'm even happier that it turned me on to the great novels of this story. I haven't enjoyed a novel series, like I do this one, in a really long time.

So, of course, I really suggest for those who want to know what happens next to check out Baka-Tsuki where Larethian and Defade have been taking their own time to translate the next part of the story. I know they've both posted this numerous times, but hey it's worth posting on every page of this board!

Yeah, it really gave me hope for a second season when I saw that
Hopefully BD sales increase from now.

Spoiler for opinion lol:


Episode 24 had the most painful 'sequel hook' since Code Geass, damn it.

Damn it for giving me hope that S2 will happen. ;_;

I still think one of the major things missing from the series was a consistent, bigger portrayal of the threesome bromantic friendship that Ryner/Sion ( with Ferris as a salad dressing ) seems to share.

For a series that is built upon the tragic friendship and destiny of those 2, there's also a sense of feeling that the 2 of them... wasn't really that great of friends that it keeps building them up to be.

Granted, part of that is contributed by how Ryner is shielded away from much of the truth, but even on the facade level, I thought it skipped a number of casual, less story-thick moments where Sion and Ryner were just casually being 'friends' together.

LOL, I agree! It did kinda miss out on that bromantic epicness part of the story. Haha, maybe they did to limit the gayishness

Considering, if there is a second season, that Ryner is going to spend his time going "Bah, my life sucks!! But Sion saved me! So I'm gonna save him no matter if it kills me!" ..ok maybe not quite like that. But, still, If I didn't read the books I might just be like "Whaaa?! F***, that! Just kill the bastard!"


My biggest disappointment after reading a bit of the books though: I wanted to see ZOHRA!!!!!!!!!!!! but did he make an appearance in DYD? Still it would have been fun to see more than just one clip with Germer and Azure Princess Group ....also I don't think it really showed just how strong Ryner really is either. I don't think it even mentioned him ever being in the "special elites", or whatever. either. Sorry!!

Well, overall, I loved the series. However, the last few episodes were extremely confusing, with no answers to whatever was happening onscreen. It was nice to watch, if I turned off my brain, but I have no idea what happened or what is going on anymore.

The biggest weakness of this series was the explaination for things and events. The anime did not do that well at all. It was fun to watch the story, but I guess I will never really understand it or what was going on unless I read some cliffnotes of the novels.

This latest episode was quite confusing, and they left it way too open. In a way, where it screams for season 2 but it could also just end there and leave rest for our imagination ... Goddamnit. I really wish for S2 but something tells me we ain't getting one ...

Someone in this thread takes anime way too seriously .. Come on, complaining about the name of the series

I found this series entertaining and enjoyable in overall even though it had it's weak moments, especially nearing the end. Simply put, it was fun to watch and that's what matters.
