Story
-Attraction like most things in life can have a real powerful pull. Sadly, most attractions are one sided. This is why we have restraining orders and the police to aid us during these troubling times. This anime uses this strong desire to show how with enough devoting any human can change to a troubling beast.
-Given the strong implied negative it is not a surprise the conclusion would be sad. I am guessing the director was not dissing prayer but saying you can't escape fate or that we are on our alone in life.
