THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
Just as expected, the last episode resolves nothing. Now to read the manga...
Yeah, it was a fantastic adaptation with too little episodes.
Loved it, wish it could have been a whole series. The manga events after this
are just as awesome as the ones till now. Would have loved to see them animated till the end.
Off to re-read the manga again, i think.
Great OVA series. Seriously. Amazing plot and characterization. Sci-fi truly is the best. Also, outstanding animation and music, especially for it's year it was made in. 8/10
Only downsides were:
- Alice/Mokuren was too oblivious and annoying
- Not enough backstory
- Unfulfilling; A lot of important parts were left out
- Random side characters introduced without much background
Idk if it was just me but there were serious homo vibes off Haru and Tamura. I have nothing against that but it was a bit of a mood-breaker.
I thought I could have skipped what I didn't read in the manga, but that's not the case as I suspected after watching ep 5. I really wished they made the anime longer, I liked most of the seiyuu's performance. Especially Rin's one of course.
I'm not going to complain why Rin is so stubborn with hurting innocent people (going as far as killing them) because the anime wanted to stay faithful but chose not to adapt the manga completely.... :(
