They can be used well and not well. And since nothing's original these days, it's easy to call anything we've seen even once before a 'plot device'. Things are simply used again well, and we call them 'good', or not used again well and therefore safely ignored. Don't make me link TVTropes on you.
I know it would've been a gaint middle finger not to use them and I know that plot devices aren't bad. It's just that I wished they were used and a happy ending was achieved in a way that didn't break my suspension of disbelief. And the reason I think it did break my suspension of disbelief is because i think it sort of contradicted all the messages the anime has been giving.
