This last episode has an awful lot to address.

Most of all, I'd like to see Momoka's choice of actions as PotC toward Kanba explained. As is, it seems to me like she did more to drive him toward his current actions than to dissuade him, which goes against everything we know about Momoka's history with Sanetoshi. I presume we're being left out of certain interactions between PotC and Kanba (and not of the intimate kind :p). However, I can't foresee any kind of "secret plan" between them which would justify domestic terrorism.

Of less importance to the plot, there's a minor omission that nags me as well. What exactly was "Project M" in regard to Masako?

I fear I will only recognize more problems in the end, but I'm still hoping to be impressed.

Hello! More of a lurker but I made an account just so I could join in on the last episode.

This has been an awesome ride! I'll be sad to see it all end but at the same time I can't wait to see what sort of an end he has in store for us.

I'm optimistic about the finale and I'm hoping for an Utena-ish ending myself. I don't expect everything to have a clear cut answer but as long I can get the gist of it I'll be happy.

Best ending ever, best anime ever.

It's indeed like this.

I missed the a little of the start and I'll have to wait for the sub before I can fully take it in or understand it but I loved it! It was beautiful and it hit all the emotional points I think it needed to. So good. So sad it's over, now Thursday is going to be just like any other day of the week.... *sob*

And it made me cry. Evil show.

LOL, well now that it's over maybe we'll get a really strange movie someday where all the characters turn into trains or something.

YayPepsi 2011-12-22 13:24

Ah, I see. :heh: Well, even if not, that's still not a bad ending.

Kirarakim 2011-12-22 13:25

I can't watch it for a few more hours (torture) and I am trying to be good and not click on the spoiler links. Obviously I was not able to stay out of the thread completely.

But I'm happy to see most of the responses have been positive. That should help me hold out.

Kazu-kun 2011-12-22 13:33

So, in the end
Spoiler for ep24 (about the penguindrum):

EDIT: I just realized Yuri and Tabuki got the best ending lol.

mark1246 2011-12-22 17:13

Im not be a troll or anything but it won’t work for me :( i don’t know what happen

Kirarakim 2011-12-22 20:17

The series wasn't perfect and there were definitely things I was dissatisfied with (especially in the second half). But you know what that ending was fabulous max. I think I would go as far as saying this was the best ending of 2011.

I really like this idea. And maybe he was thinking along that line.

But yeah, it was a good ending despite being quite bittersweet.

As for Ringo, I think a little less focus on her in the first part of the series and a bit more in the second part would have worked better for her character. She was still all kinds of awesome though, and her role at the ending was pretty fabulous max :cool:.

Utsuro no Hako 2011-12-22 23:15

I'll wait until the subs before making any substantive comments, but for now I'll say this was one damn fine looking episode. The whole series has had an old-school shoujo look, but they really cranked it up here. I sorta wish Ikuhara and this whole team would turn around and remake The Rose of Versailles.
