THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
Finally we reach the end, Yumiko is a fearsome opponent in that state but the injury Misa sustained doesn't look too bad so she could still fight. But the showdown between Misa and Yumiko is pretty good, some high quality stuff there :D Misa's code ability keeps reminding me of Hecate :D Koyomi has a strong friendship with Yumiko till the end and it shows when she tried to save her from getting sucked in^^
Average happy end, wasted potential like the whole season was.
Total impression: Half-assed in any direction and acted at the border to ridiculousity. There were some good ideas but that made it poorly average :/
At least I could listen to Nonaka Ai's voice
I hate these kind of endings where the main character doesn't understand the situation and then tries to change something, when they really shouldn't, but everything conveniently works itself out.
Overall, probably the worst out the summer season animes that I have watched.
Soushirou saves the day, yet he is unaware of everything..
Unable to see magic or codes, he is also a Mage Killer who nulls all magical attacks deeming him invincible yet he is clueless as to what is going on. Nonetheless, he defeats Gary Huang and saves both Koyomi and Yumiko, still clueless as to what is going on, even though he dragged them out of a huge black hole in the middle of the street. Makes little to no sense at all.
A waste of time really. Soushirou was somewhat interesting as a magekiller. Misa was growing on me. Koyomi annoyed the crap out of me. Yumiko came off as a bit of a spoiled brat. The villians came off shallow and underdeveloped. Kaho came off as a bit of a nonentity. I thought the idea off modern magic and making it technology sounding interesting but the only freaking attack spell was the sword thing and it got old quick
In short, as stated numerous times above, TOTALLY wasted potenital. Doubt it'll get a second season...doubt even more if I'd watch it if it did
Well, that was quite a mediocre anime, though it had some interesting premises that, as others have stated before, were executed rather poorly. I guess I watched it till the end mostly because of Misa. On the other side, the Oscar for the most annoying character goes to Koyomi. Why, o why did she have to be the lead. I'm fed up with whiny and idiotic characters like her.
Oh, and Kaho is prolly a Nagato Yuki rip-off (at least personality-wise).
