Gah too many chapters at once o_o

I felt that it was kind of ending too soon - there was plenty of development left for the characters. In the end it wasn't so much about "what we have learned on our journey", but "the things we just started that give us a reason to want to keep going".

thoughts for 57 and up:
Spoiler:

Well, here's to the ending of a nice manga!

In the end there weren't huge revelations or complicated reasons, just a bunch of children trying to come to terms with the world.
But, what we got was done well. I'd rate is as a 4/5 (with some of the scenes 4.5, with the wrap-up bringing it down a bit with a 3.5 - it does not seem to be the mangaka's strenght, but it was "decent").

I also thought it was kind of strange how things suddenly speeded up like that, kind of sad seeing it comming to an end already.

Spoiler for hopes for the ending:

Well, considering the next chapter is the last, I've got a question:

Where the hell is our anime adaptation announcement? This thing was born to be animated by Gainax.

Probably never come, I don't think the manga has ever been popular enough for one which is really too bad since it is so awesome.

I wouldn't mind an anime, but the story is extremely repetitive.. I imagine people would get bored of the format "fight golems/train" for every episode.

It's got nothing on the monster/battle of the week formula, so i really don't see any problems with that.

Fighting the golems is not the point. It's entirely about how the young characters grow to accept each other from their loneliness, and how the elder characters like Nagumo and Shimaki accept their place to bring the next generation forward. I love how everyone has a different problem. There is a Key-esque bittersweet pain to wrap up each character. It's nowhere close to replacing Key, but I can find the idea in it.

That said, the fighting makes me mentally scream "YEEEAAAAAAHHHHHH" all the time.

To be honest, the only problem in this entire series is the artwork, but after 10 or so chapters it's easy to put that aside and let imagination fill in the gaps.

I agree with that, but the fights aren't that bad either, although you expect everyone to have the same 'telekinetic' based power, the way they shape it to their own style is quite useful.

Lol at Yuuhi's trick on that girl.

But the drawing style is good? It has character and style? Maybe lack of detail on the enviroment but an animation studio could fix that right up.

Well yeah, the fights are not like, shonen manga level (although those can also be pretty dumb) but they are not really about the techniques either (everyone has like, one or two of those? anyway) but the drama during them (will X die or not, will Y join the fight or not, will Z betray the others or won't...)

Yeah, in the end, I have to agree with that. You know how one could avoid that, though? With even more emphasis on the self-(+genre-)parody angle. If you KNOW that the golem fights are to be silly and repetitive than you could make it look like lampshade hanging...maybe.

Personally, I like the fights. Especially toward the end they have almost a Crouching Tiger feel to them that I think could be expanded beautifully to animation, especially where it concerns Nagumo, Hakudou, Samidare, and both pairs of siblings.

And as bare as the art style is on this series can be, it really couldn't see it reaching its potential in an anime without an inordinate level of production value (read: frame rate). You know, where fights focus on perspective and detail to get the point across, as opposed to "badass" poses and speed lines.

Who can blame him? The Pillows are awesome!





If this was ever adapted as an anime it would be such a perfect fit to have the Pillows music in the soundtrack imo.

I think I was wrong and it actually comes out on the 30th. I forgot I posted saying a date here. Anyway we still probably have a few days to a week or so before a translated chapter is out. And that chapter will probably be only on 4chan.
