Kyoukai no Kanata episode 12
Damn you, Kyoukai no Kanata! Where do these Japanese get the nerve to scare me twice with the same thing? It wasn’t funny the first time and it certainly wasn’t funny this time either. I must be really stupid to have fallen for it again.
So Akihito returned to Mirai-chan’s side after having absorbed part of Kyoukai no Kanata in his right arm. They both made it their mission to get to the Youmu’s core in order to try and stop it. I never thought that I would see Akihito fight. I never even thought that he could be as powerful as (or arguably even stronger than) Mirai-chan.
I have to give him my compliments for not giving into temptation. He had a cute girl right in front of him and her skirt was going up and down. Did he pick? Maybe, but he chose to ignore and focus on the matter at hand. I like that! No ecchi comedy during a very important action-filled scene. That is how it is done, people.
Now, they managed to make their way to the core, fight off thousands of Youmu and allow Akihito to reabsorb Kyoukai no Kanata into his body again. I guess this means that Akihito is back to being a wild card. But, and I really can’t appreciate this, they made it seem as though Mirai died. She disappeared after Akihito fused with Kyoukai no Kanata and they created a scene so dramatic that I actually believed that she had gone for good. That’s why I was pretty annoyed (and happy) when Mirai-chan reappeared during last 2 minutes. I should’ve known that these stories always have a happy ending. Still, I’m grateful for having seen such an amazing show. Thank you!
