I will have to admit that this wasn’t one of the endings I had hoped for, but I guess it’s the best next thing. Am I satisfied? Sure. A good ending for yet another underrated show. If only more people had given this a fair chance.
Nevertheless, I am still not satisfied with the fact that that mercenary was allowed to leave like that. He is alive and well and was even given the right to speak to Archangel Michael when he asked him what he thought of Maria. Of course he’s going to say negative things. But that’s not the point. The point is that he’s still alive after raping Maria, killing his chief and so many others. That insane monk got killed when he approached Michael, but that mercenary will be allowed to live, after which he will probably continue to wage war in order to loot and loot.
I also did not like the idea of Maria becoming human so that she can live her life and have children of her own. The only thing that I liked about that is that Ezekiel got spared and will be reborn as Maria’s child. That part I definitely liked. But the thought of a powerless Maria does not suit me one tiny bit to be honest.
May review may not reflect it, but I really was satisfied with the episode. It was a nice ending to an overall good show. There will always be one or two things that you won’t agree with it in the end, but you know it’s a good show when it ends and you already start wishing for another season of it. I can only hope to see more of this someday…Read More
I am once again forced to keep a post short. I couldn’t sleep last night so I went down to warm up some milk when I tripped and fell down the stairs. My back is absolutely killing me and now I have to go to my doctor tomorrow. So yeah, short post incoming.
So the princess did her thing and implored her people to stop fighting and return to their own bases. She is sick and tired of all the fighting and wishes to have peace between earth and the people of Vers. Not that it matters, because earth may have Inaho, but Vers has a more advanced technology and far more powerful mechs at their disposal. In theory they should win.
But hey, Slaine almost gave up when he tried to blow up that base with him still in it. But in the end he came out to fight Inaho-kun and failed once more. Inaho, as everyone already knew, has won and Slaine has been imprisoned to protect the people from earth and Vers and to protect Slaine from himself, seeing as he’s quite suicidal now that he’s lost. All in all a pretty good ending for a great show. Thank you. I am going to cry myself to sleep now.Read More
A new character, new mysteries and new possibilities. I have to admit that the latest character sure clears things up a little if you ask me. It answered quite a few questions that I’m sure a lot of other fans had for the past few weeks (or pretty much since the start).
So this new character shows up (in a rather flashy way) and things already get out of hand. In fact, he challenged Koro-sensei right away to a match after school. Of course, Koro-sensei, thinking he’s the fastest creature alive, agreed to that challenge because he thought he would win either way. That, if you ask me, is his biggest weakness. He automatically assumes he’ll win.
Still, things did not go completely his way. That new guy showed that he, too, had a few of those handy tentacles. That’s when Koro-sensei’s smile definitely disappeared. He was dodging and using all sorts of tricks in order to escape death. He only got away because he has more experience than that boy, otherwise things might not have ended so well for Koro-sensei.
Anyway, we learned quite a few things. We learned that Koro-sensei and that buy were probably man-made life forms. That makes more sense than him being an alien somehow. I mean, yeah, he destroyed the moon, proving that he can travel through space, but branding him an alien would seem rather weird. No, but him being a man-made creature makes a little more sense. Let’s face it; humanity is always trying to destroy itself one way or another. Finding out that a group of scientists made some creature in some lab that then destroyed the moon sounds actually quite plausible.Read More
Well, I don’t think it would take a genius to see that there’s definitely another season coming in the (near) future. And why not? The Tokyo Ghoul series have been a huge success in ratings and the first season has done quite well in sales as well.
Now then; Ken has once again lost another friend. First it was the old man and now his best friend, Hide. I thought it was quite touching how that guy knew from the start that Ken had become a ghoul. He knew and he still helped Ken by taking him to safety after his fight against the almighty Amon-kun. Not only did he do that because he was his friend, he did it even though he was fatally wounded himself. He didn’t care about seeking medical attention, he just wanted to drag Ken to a quiet spot where his colleagues wouldn’t be able to find and kill him. Now that’s true friendship for you!
And Touka? Yeah. She just almost everyone. She still has a few friends left on the planet, but the Anteiku staff have given their lives in the attempt to defend their beloved café. It’s a damn shame that it burned down, but Touka already decided to continue its legacy if I saw correctly. Nice to see that the deaths of so many of her friends didn’t end up destroying her life.
As for Ken… Well… He took Hide’s body back to his colleagues. Probably so they can give him a proper burial. Was it a smart move? Not at all. He was standing against a guy that took on the real One-Eyed Owl on his own. How the hell is Ken supposed to beat someone like that when he couldn’t even deal with the ghoul that he helped save a few weeks ago? We’ll just have to wait till the next season I guess…Read More
And so our happy ending finally arrives. Parasyte truly was a stroke of brilliance. This author isn’t all that known when compared to some of the others out there. He really did it big when he created Parasyte. This anime adaption is one to be remembered for sure.
So things went back to normal or as normal as things get in a world where parasitic killing machines live amongst you. They adapted to the human way of life. They started eating the same food, doing work to earn money and they seemed to have learned to control themselves, which goes to show that a display of necessary force was all that was really needed to get them to back down. Well, that and the fact that Shinichi and Migi killed the strongest of them last week. I guess this means that humans are once again on top of the food chain in the world of Parasyte.
Now then, I knew that insane killer would show up again at some point. I had no idea it was going to go down that way, but I am not entirely sure I disliked it. The only thing that I disliked is that I have no idea if he survived or not. I mean, a superhuman punch to the face from an emotional boyfriend trying to save his girlfriend sounds pretty damaging to me…
Nevertheless, humanity has won and Shinichi survived all of his trials and has started a new chapter in his life. He is going to finish school, work on his relationship and hope that one day he might be able to speak to Migi again. I’ll admit that I don’t see the value of Migi going to sleep for a long time, but it do think it’s a nice touch. Well done, Mr. Iwaaki (the author).
