Sora no Woto 12-End

So, it’s finally over. Honestly, while the ending episode wasn’t a bloodbath, and could actually be better, for me it worked.

Still a badass.

Phylicia is definitely my favorite character of this series, hands down. While her actions in the previous episode were questionable, she makes up for by being downright awesome in this episode.

Although some people may complain that the ending is somewhat unrealistic (superhero tank what?) it’s been bouncing on the shark since episode 8. At this point, it was expected on my end.

I really thought the whole storytelling with the legend of the angel was really cool. At the very least, they animated it really well.

Things that bugged me? First of all, we never found out what the war pre-Roman war was about exactly. We don’t even know who the angels were or what not. I’m just going to say aliens. Second off, for someone who is suppose to be a demon to refuse to take out a town? If he was as bloodthirsty as presented, he should have been, “Fine then. Soldiers, attack.” Third, and finally, it makes no sense for an important political figure such as Rio to return to the platoon. Um, okay, sure.

I think what happened is the creators simply didn’t have enough time to do what they wanted to do. While the first 2/3 of the series was fine, too much happened in the last four episodes. Case in point would be finding at that Noel was responsible for the Invisible Reaper in episode 11, and she’s forgiven in episode 12. That’s a wee bit fas

In the end though, everyone lived happily ever. Except the grim fact that it’s still a dying world…

    Which will result in soldiers telling him to fuck off. They are already tired of war and with other opinion from the fortress such fullish order would result in mutiny… which in reality wouldn’t be even mutiny. Hopkins is smart enough to not push things there.

    • I’m not sure I can agree with that, as soldiers are trained to follow their commanders, and have done what they were ordered to do many horrible things. Maybe you’re right, but I can’t help but feel that he would have tried, and only if the soldiers resisted would he have decided to go the other way.

        Didn’t worked in WW1. When soldiers get TOO tired they simply do not care. And we know from previous episode that army is underpaid and rarely even paid in real money, they are not backward garrison like Time-telling fortress, so they most likely paid in time, but other two problems are there. Also position from “rebels” from fortress is that peace talks concluded and war is ended, while now colonel can override that thinking with his authority, if he will push too much… While any of factors along could result in mutiny if such order would be given, all of them together make it very high probability. And it’s too late to pull back if they refuse to follow his orders any more.

  2. @al103 While morale did drop significantly, it was the result of a drawn out war. Also, soldiers had to face punishments for disobeying orders, trying to desert, and trying to self injure themselves to be sent home.

    In this case, it was a war about to start, not a drawn out one.

    Also, Hopkins made it seem as if he was willing to do anything to start the war.

    Honestly, I think there’s enough support to argue both ways on this and still be right. It even could be as simple as he didn’t want to waste the supplies on them. Either way, he did not make the choice not to attack in the end.

      It’s war that was drawn for at least 6 years (and if previews of show spoken truth MORE THAN 50!!!), which isn’t really ended… and soldiers were required to follow enemy unit for at least month.

      >Also, Hopkins made it seem as if he was willing to do anything to start the war.

      Yea, he willing to do anything to start war… even stomp om his pride for be able to do so and not to be shot by his own mutinied soldiers.
