As the world accelerates toward its own destruction, Kiba and Cheza—with the help of Tsume, Hige, Toboe, and Blue—race to reach true paradise before the entire world is rendered uninhabitable. Now reunited, Cher and Hubb decide to accompany the wolves in hopes of seeing the journey through to its end, while a distraught and confused Quent wanders aimlessly into the wasteland with his mind fixated on revenge.

Meanwhile, Lord Darcia the Third has finally put his plot into motion and pursues Cheza, pitting him against the pack. As everything falls apart yet simultaneously falls into place, the wolves struggle to survive in an increasingly dangerous environment. Though the end draws near, paradise seems further away than ever before.

The ending of the series. What a way to finish it.

I'm pretty angry about the separation between the ending of the series, and this ending. Both are unchanging, and I watched both, thinking it's weird how they attempt to wrap it up before this. An incomplete experience, without much of an explanation, but then, there comes what's basically a movie to wrap it up.

I loved this ending. The bleakness gets turned up to eleven, the characters are now given no forgiveness. Everybody is a victim from the world, and there's nothing they can do about it. All or nothing, we move on to the ...

*CHEZA : The world will close up for a while. So we will be apart for a while. So when the next world opens up... when paradise opens up, we will meet again. This one will be waiting for you. Find this one...

*KIBA : No matter what it is, I will just accept it.

This is after KIBA saved CHEZA from JAGARA, they are going to open up the Paradise. Everyone is aware of the fact that there's only one chosen one, but still they are accompanying him.

1. These four episodes felt very tragic, the fact that they had to lose their ...

I absolutely liked wolf's rain from episode one till its ending at episode 26.

However, i completely hated the ova the extra four episodes. they were extremely pathetic, and the act of forgiveness and sacrificing of oneself or should we say wolf self for the other especially the pops guy was taken to another level entirely, till it became completely illogical and excessively pathetic.

Also, i feel like the writers just needed to make everything completely depressing such that you think the characters you liked from the start completely stupid in just these four episodes, and did i already mention pathetic>?....

Its as though the writers ...
