amazing ending with cliffhanger to take us into season 2, something which this richly deserves! was not totally drawn into this until about episode 4 or 5, but after that totally fell in love - great characters, black humor, action, violence, and psychosis all mixed up into one hell of an anime...can't wait for more, october is too far away!!!

Lol. That came out of nowhere, but nice random use of a warcry anyway. :D

The first half of the series, it was good (7), nothing too special though.

Valmet's Finnish and she was avenging her Finnish UN peacekeeping unit so it's not random at all.

At first I really thought Ugo would die with that little background story told beforehand then everyone that got ambushed survived
At Valmets raid I thought she died with Jonah in her arms with Karen along
That would have been a big surprise, but they both survived

I guess there is a lot to look forward now next season with a complete team of Koko

I think the second season has great potential to surpass the first. That's not to say I didn't like S1 because it was pretty awesome.

But people should die after taking some of the shots they receive. My only real complaint with the series.

A great ending to a great series. More history, more Valmet. Watching her going wild was great! I was almost sure that she died there when Karen shot her. It's a relief that neither did. R always looked different to me. Looks like we have something to look forward to next season.
And slowly, you come to realize... It's all as it should be...

I thought both Ugo and Valmet were dead, especially Valmet, and although i like her character, i would've prefered if she actually died saving Jonah...that would've been an awesome ending for the season.

Anyway, i enjoyed this anime and i'm looking forward to season 2.

Great episode and a nice ending to the first season, the second season should have a much better storyline. I'll give this 8/10 for now.

Great Ending and can't wait for season 2.
As for Score I was between 8 and 9. Decided on the 8 at the end, because I really liked it, but not as much as I liked Black lagoon for example, which I gave a 9 for the main series and a 10 for Robertas Blood Trail. Also going to pick up the manga and I hope the translation after Chapter 49 is going to happen.

Pretty bad final episode for this season with that "fight" scene they didn't even bother showing and that "cliffhanger" that wasn't even interesting.

Also, that Karen chick firing like 7 shots at point blank range and missing all but two - with those two not penetrating through. Then Jonah pops her two in the stomach and for some reason they both still live and recovered in the same hospital. With Karen not bothering to kill Valmet when she's asleep.. ok.

I believe in suspending logical reasoning to an extent for the sake of enjoying these shows, but that's a bit too much. The rest was enjoyable though without bothering me a lot. Will probably wait for season 2 until I give a final score.

Way to go, Jormungand. 9/10
Further comments? Needless since the show's glory is apparent anyway. Looking forward to watching season 2.

Somehow this ep reminded me of a Marathon+Lightweight+Commando+tac knife player (can't believe I still remember that combination) who is hunted by a camper, the latter being killed by someone who sneaks up on him.

Anyway. Music in this ep was the best, imo. I give Jorm an 8. Now for a three month wait...

I was looking forward to awarding two 7's this season, but then this episode happened. While not revoltingly bad, it was still rather poorly executed, especially near the end. 6/10.

agree with you.
dunno, I don't really want Valmet to die but it might make more of an "impact"..
Looking forward to the next season :)

the point is not about anyone (not) dying, but if you've been shot (several times, at least that is the way it sounded and looked like more than once), then it is very unlikely that you'll "magically" get out of it (nearly) unwounded or even alive.. it's not just about the last episode, it happened in some of the other episodes also.
well, anime physics *sigh*

I see this as a more boring version of Black Lagoon (even though they are not really the same thing).

Fucking action.

Fucking suspense.
Fucking Valmet kicking so much ASS.

This was mindless action with an intelligent edge... totally worth the watch.


S2 needs to get here now.

Well, that was a surprisingly low body count considering how many people got shot...I hope Lilianetachi opened their restaurant and can live on in peace. 4/5. Also, did I heart Dutch's VA when that CIA guy talked?

7/10 for the series, it was nowhere near as good as Black Lagoon, but it was still a very enjoyable action show.

What did we learn, kid? Bullets don't penetrate bodies, and you can survive after getting shot with .45 caliber rounds!

So Ugo does end up surviving, that's good I guess. And so did Valmet as well as Karen even though they both got shot multiple times at distances where these usually don't miss. Oh well I was hoping that Liliane and Karen would get out of this alive and I am glad they did.

This anime turned out better than what I had expected and was enjoyable. Can't wait for season 2 to see who's side R is on.

Really it's a 9/10 if you want to judge it as a standalone that doesn't conclude, but I'm sure that the second season is going to be just as good as this one. Let's hope....

holy crap, that was an intense episode. I like Karen glad she survived and hoped to see more of her.. but Valmet is badass as usual.:D

Loved how it ended too. I'd vote 9/10, my vote for anime of the year. :0

bring on 2nd season!

Very good episode and anime. Though, I have to admit many stuff felt stupid (Koko's team never getting real wounds or showing exhaustion or having real trouble during fights and lack of a more complex story) it was still a nice run and I look forward to the next season. I just wish they would make more realistic fights. 8/10

Loved Koko's Door Fu there, LOL, quite the hillarious way for her to take someone out. And then that epic car chase with the face-to-face shootout, totally killer. Set to the "Her name is Koko, she is loco" song no less!

Was disappointed we didn't get to see Shaojiang's last battle with Valmet ... I don't imagine it was brief, though it doesn't look like he got so much as a single hit on her so maybe it was a two-stroke battle (the one we saw and the killing blow). Then the cycle of revenge comes round and Jonah is left as the only one standing ... until we find out that neither of the chicks died. This show is seeming oddly like Bleach, no major character ever seems to die, especially on Koko's team. Even the team of quirky assassins survived to start their restaurant ... hope we see them again in season 2. :)

The bit with Bookman/Saw and R at the end seemed really random, but was clearly a cliffhanger for season 2. I hope it airs soon, I really enjoyed this first series. One of the more unique shows around, it definitely had a seinen-type feel to it (kinda like Black Lagoon, but with a less psychotic female lead).

Definitely a good ending that's leaving me to beg for the second season to come soon! In fact, seeing the amount of characters involved in this anime, I actually thought that this was going to go on for 26 episodes. However, as soon as I watched this episode, I became a bit saddened to know that this season went on for 12 episodes, but still, it was satisfying.
