BTOOOM! episode 12

There are only two good things about this otherwise horrible ending. Wait, am I even allowed to call it an ending when I don’t even acknowledge it as such? How can this be called an ending when it doesn’t end anything. The only plausible explanation would be that there’s going to be another season.

It was inevitably obvious. I don’t care about his reasons. There’s no excuse for betraying your friends, let alone trying to kill them. The only good thing about Kiyoshi is that he had the decency to kill himself at the end.

I found it astonishing that Ryouta actually attempted to bring him back as a friend after all the things Kiyoshi had done. Ryouta, walking on one leg because Kiyoshi almost blow the other clean off, actually tried to get him to come back, merely because he thought that it was his fault that Kiyoshi was trying to kill them.

I still can’t believe that Himiko was willing to give up her life so that Ryouta could get off the island. I guess sometimes it’s a good thing that Ryouta’s such a boy scout. He probably would’ve killed Himiko if he was a bit more like his old friend, Nobutaka.

Anyway, I’ll end this post about this disappointing episode here. I’ll say it one more time; I refuse to acknowledge this as an ending! I can only home that there’s going to be another season or an OVA or two that will properly finish the story, because this just left a bad taste in my mouth. I feel like I just got robbed. Two hundred and forty minutes of my live gone because of a story with no ending…
