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