Zetsuen no Tempest episode 22

Things just went way too easily, didn’t it? I thought that there was going to be a lot more drama, a lot more arguing and a way bigger struggle. Things have never gone this easy in this show, never. There has always been doubt or some kind of struggle.

[HorribleSubs] Zetsuen no Tempest - 22 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.59_[2013.03.15_23.11.09]I was excited. I sat down in my chair with a few mini pizzas and fired up the episode. It started out right; Hakaze was retrieving the letters that Aika left her in order to prepare to tell Mahiro and Yoshino the truth about what happened. You’d think that there was going to be a huge, doubt-filled argument after all that’s happened so far.

So what happened? Hakaze sat everyone down and gently told her story, showed them the letter and apologized (kind of). I was waiting for it. I was waiting for Mahiro to jump up and raise hell. That’s why I was completely shocked when Mahiro didn’t even raise his voice. That’s why I was completely shocked when Yoshino didn’t ask anything else. They both just accepted.

The only one that raised hell was the guy you’d least expect, but I suppose it’s always like that. Megumu, the biggest coward in the show thus far, went completely crazy when he saw how calm those two were. I cheered as he continuously drove his fist into their faces.

The final two episodes will show their final struggle as they try to take down that evil tree with the help of Megumu, whose power exceeds logic. It’s kind of ironic that the weakest, strangest character suddenly becomes the key to saving the world from that reset. We roughly know what’ll happen, we roughly know how, so how are they going to make things interesting? I wonder…
