I liked the series a lot overall, but the ending kind of pissed me off.

Why does Joe suddenly leave on his own for no reason at the end after all they've been through? And why does Sana happily part after becoming pretty attached to him? It makes no sense and is not supported at all.

I felt the same way. Maybe in the end it was just a way for them to stick Jo's character development into our faces. To be honest I always wondered why he followed Jin around the entire time. Maybe with Jin gone, Jo no longer needed to rely on anyone since he found something he wanted to do in life.

All in all though I really wish he stuck with the crew. Shiba was sick as hell and like you said Sana did become pretty attached to him.

The ending actually disappointed me a little, as well as Jin's betrayal. I kept thinking that Jin would come around in the end, that it was all an elaborate plot for him to actually help Jo and the others. When the episodes came closer to the conclusion, I accepted the fact that Jin was a selfish person and that he wasn't going back. That pissed me off since I actually liked his character, I thought that Jin and Jo made the perfect duo team :`(

Joe is supposed to be without emotional or egoistical attachment, so he's basically indifferent and that's how supposedly he's able to ride the modified gladiator without busting his brain nervous system out.
One of the problem with this series is character development, and when it comes to Joe, the turned-out-to-be main hero - we simply know nothing about him at all.

I think this series built up a great deal of expectations that wasn't met in the end. There were enough intrigue and suspense during the middle sequence, but towards the end the momentum was lost. The characters weren't developed quite enough and the plot itself doesn't seem quite original - it's like a shorter and simplistic version of Soukou No Strain. The Jin and Jo twist was just a distraction from an otherwise plain plotline. Overall it was fairly ok but I think we all feel a bit disappointed with the ending I suppose.

Ah, it's over. Such a shame this is an underrated series. The finale concluded everything well with the leader of the Phantom defeated. Finally. Anyways, I did not like Jin's character throughout the series but loved the first half and most of the second half. The other characters were pretty fun to watch as well.

In the finale, it did seem somewhat confusing in the latter half so I might have to re watch that regarding the seven children along with Sana. At any rate, it was a nice series overall imo. 8/10. Hope for a season 2.
