Was laughing hysterically over how "cliffhangery" this episode is.This is like the most unfinished anime I've seen lol. It feels like the story just started with this last episode.
Definitely need to read the manga now that the story got more interesting.
Oh and fu Griffith. Never liked you from the start and probably never will.

last two episodes were queit possibly the two worst episodes of anime I have ever watched, and it wasn't because of the plot or any of the things people complain about.
what actually happened?
1) the hawks found out they were going to be sacrificed
2) the hawks were sacrificed
3) griffith 2.0 was born
why the fuck did that take 50 minutes to explain?
fucking awful. talk about dragging on.
the worst was when they repeat exact sentences over and over again. Ruined the whole series for me.

LOL, reading some of the comments before me and it seems everyone enjoyed the series (I sure did). The ending even though it was not ideal, was great. It leaves us at a big climax in the story and would have been great to start up another season after the events of ep 25, but tragically the anime stopped. All we can hope for now is the manga to have the conclusion and for the movies to tell the story after ep 25 and so on.
Btw for those who don't know the manga is still continuing and the movies are coming out.

I for one loved the abrupt ending. It feels more artsy (even if its accidental) the way that they are all devoured and then there's only a short enigmatic cut-scene (linking to the beginning).
Think of it as being similar to the "lived happily ever after" ending, that only works as long as you don't question it and try to deconstruct how the "ever after" looked like. If you do, you ruin it.
Even though I read the manga, I'd rather they not continue with the anime as frankly, I lost confidence that sensei knows where he is going with the story. The same way that I'd rather not see the sequels to the matrix made, because they didn't offer much and their very existence ruined a fairly decent ending. Still, there's always the temptation for the writer to continue a best seller, to make some mo, and a large chunk of the public seem to want to have every little bit explained to them, leaving very little to the imagination, and very little in the way of artistic understatement. Sigh.

the manga is a million times better than the anime and the anime is still a classic. Go read it and DON'T SKIP ANY ARCS, which includes the ones that the anime covers. You'll regret it big time if you do.
I agree about the manga reading better than the anime watches. The action doesn't really pick up till ep. 18 when the queen is burned, and the anime feels very stretched, especially in the middle.
However, the manga has its fair share of problems and gets increasingly ridiculous as the Kushan invasion progresses. It falls into the sad cliche pattern of a childish supernatural arms race, where "I have the power of the god hand, no, I have the power to infinity, no, I have the power to infinity+1". You get the picture. This sort of thing is especially evident in DBZ and Pokemon. By the time I got to Fantasia Arc I was bored, and now it seems like the rest of the story will be ad-libbed, with no ending in sight.
You know that feeling when you have tasted something great for the first time, but then it doesn't seem so great after you've been eating it straight for a few days, or after years of eating it. Especially if you try it even once, once its starts to spoil.

Before I watched the show, I prepared myself for reading the manga afterwards. I understood the ending was not going to be complete and that the series is not complete.
I however have no complaints about this episode, or the episode before this. Only that the series is incomplete.
As an episode, this was amazing. I watched as the invincible band of hawks who have survived through thick and thin for a leader who is now useless to them are dismantled by that said leader's ambition and "dream". It was foreshadowed heavily throughout the season this would happen. Griffith gave hints when he clarified what a friend was to the princess... and that description did not describe the band of hawks. Further more, his conversation with Gutts about God and the Devil being the same entity confirmed for me that power is what Griffith respects as his religion... and in that, I knew he'd sacrifice the BoH and Guts at some point.
Then the final scene.. so much was running through my head. Why? Is it because of jealousy? It is a power struggle to show Guts who really is in charge? Was it to inflict pain on Guts or to satisfy Griffith's powerlessness which he has felt for the past year? Then how is Guts feeling? What are Casca's emotions? The man she has grown to love is watching her being pleasured by the man she has loved since day one. The man whom she sided to stay with over going off with Guts... It was all crazy for me.
For me, these episodes did not come out of the blue. Episode 1 Guts even says hes looking to kill King Griffiths or whatever.
Anyway, as 25 episodes, I rate this series 10/10. As a series... if I were not reading the manga, I would feel like potential was not fulfilled given the last episode. Then again, I could easily see the last episode simply being a dark end to an excellent series. They struggled, they fought and Griffith's dream.. which Guts tried to run from... eventually enveloped them in what is hell.

lol crazy last few episodes.
i avoided watching this anime for years but really glad i gave it a chance. probably too much raping going on the last few episodes. but i gave this anime a 10 out of 10.
read a few post on here and great point, i would of liked to see how guts escaped. probably a touch less raping would of been nice as well.

Wow, Caska getting raped by testicles. They've drawn the female body really beautiful.
I will give this series a 9 out of 10. And It was not that open-ended at all.
How did Guts escape? Did Casca survive? Did Guts ever confront Griffith again? None of these things are explained. But it's OK, I started on the Manga, and I'm already like 4 chapters in, so I'll eventually find out. The Manga is even way more fucked up and violent than the anime.
This first episode shows that guts did survive as he has only one arm, and is fighting that huge snake and gets the egg back. You also see his mark that the devils gave him and they show them tormenting him.
Still alot of questions unanswered, hopefully the last movie might finish the story, otherwise i guess ill have to read the manga
