Lol, Tora and Mayuko has such a fun chemistry in this series, I love it.

Glad to see almost every character participate in the final fight including the Kamaitachi siblings. I like Tora's new armor too, very fitting with his fighting style. Seeing him fighting side by side with Ushio again is quite exciting against Hakumen. Intense episode as expected!

This episode was beautiful in more ways than one

Mayuko's scene with Tora, the scene with the youkai siblings and most of all the fated reunion....Absolutely beautiful

RIP Scientists guys though, you shall be missed

first the scene with mayuko and tora almost made me want to cry, second humans finally starting to team up with youkai, third R.I.P. old scientist's (I hate that I can't remember there names), fourth Tora rejoins everyone to fight Hakumen and lastly Hakumen is now trapped in the barrier but refuses to go down without a fight. The build up for this is amazing was disappointed that it ended so soon.

Tora looks pretty badass with that new armor of his. I think seeing him and Ushio fighting Hakumen together really showed just how far the relationship between them has come, and overall it's really nice to see everyone joining together to beat Hakumen. Now that they've got him inside the barrier it's time for the final push. Next episode is titled "The End" so I'm guessing the fight will end in that episode then episode 13 will be an epilogue of sorts.

The symbolism of I have a hole in my chest meaning Ushio was really sad :(

Loved the MayukoxTora scene.

The climax is nigh!

Sad that the scientists died. I liked them. The series keeps killing all the characters I like :(

Tora revives and next episode we will have the final battle. I guess that the last episode will have an epilogue or something.

Aww, Tora's become awkward toward Mayuko. How cute seeing them both at that really moment.
And now he's back to the battlefield with full armor which means he's now really ready for the battle against Hakumen.
That's it old-timer, you should just whistle and wait in the middle of that collapsing building. Just leave the battle for the young one.

The power of love XD?

Ugh, I still choked up during Mayuko and Tora's scene. I mean, it was hard enough listening to an exhausted, broken Tora beat himself down like that, then Mayuko comes in and says such wishful thinking and... hnnnngh...

Next episode, holy shit I can hardly wait. There's two episodes left, so I'm pretty sure next week's will end on what I think will be that episode's cliffhanger. And what a doozy that one will be. Everyone hold on to your butts, there's still more shit to hit the fan.

this episode was just so thrilling, ushio to tora has alot of ups and downs and unfortunately that inconsistency seriously hurts it but that doesnt makes its highs not a thrill.

Man they totally nailed the Mayuko x Tora scene, loved that moment in the manga and still got teary eyed. Same with the scientist death although I feel like that impact was lost due to skipped content but was still sad..

5/5

I am really loving this season, So many good things to look forward too after a long night at work.

Tora was always able to regenerate, due to Lady Hakumen making him immortal and all that. Better question might be why he didn't do it until now, the answer to which it would probably that he lost his will to fight.

Anyone know the name of the sad soundtrack of the moment Mayuko x Tora? I wish to listen this without voices but I don't find it. It has not been released yet? :(

I believe the OST has been released. That's actually like a peaceful rendition of Mayuko's theme, I noticed--well, I think it's her theme because it plays a lot whenever she shows up (if Asako is in the same scene, it's much more upbeat). It's apparently called "Ushio's Team" (うしおのテーマ)? Unless that's the name of that particular OST album? I'm not entirely sure, but I know it when I hear it, and it sounds exactly like that, but much softer and slower than what I've previously heard. There's like multiple different versions of the same melody, so the closest to that one during the scene is like the fourth version actually, probably its ninth version now that I'm listening through it.

Agree. My understanding is, Tora kept saying "I have a hole in my chest" was in fact a physical representation that he was emotionally hurt. Tora didn't want to admit it but Ushio kicking him away had really hurt him. But after Mayuko's cheer up, Tora finally admitted he wanted to fight alongside with Ushio. So Mayuko said "There isn't a hole in your chest anymore".

I think a more appropriate translation of the title should be "The Endgame". Don't understand why the subtitle team chose "The End".

Too bad MAPPA did not use "The meaning of the journey", which was my favorite manga chapter title.

waiting for the beast that Ushio and Tora saved back in the scientists episodes, he shows up in the ending so he should show up, right?
And what about Kirio? he just told us about the past and that's it?

But well, Nagare was there as well.. So..

Also, could anyone tell me what the portrait was all about a few episodes back? The long haired girl from Ushio's harem, she received it but then nothing.. what is that all about?

Reiko's memories were still infected by the hiyou at the time, so she just thought the portrait of her was endearing despite not knowing why. But the meaning behind it was Ushio had promised to use her in a painting of his, and he kept it and gave it to her as his final present before he left for the final battle. There's no other follow-up, just a nice callback to "The Oni in the Painting" and that Ushio keeps his promises.

Yet another great episode, they've finally boxed Hakumen in but with 2 episodes to go you can't expect this to go smoothly huh

Tora was always able to regenerate, due to Lady Hakumen making him immortal and all that. Better question might be why he didn't do it until now, the answer to which it would probably that he lost his will to fight.


Also, probably that he was completely out of it.

I still wish they would explain what that comb is... I think Hinowa has the same combs that she said she uses solely for focus, so I'm guessing that comb is the same; focus to heighten houriki or some other sort of spiritual power, thus, why it could only work to bring someone back if the women using it had a strong connection to said person, to heighten their focus.

I'm just guessing; but that makes the most sense.

I'm glad the souls of the Ayakashi came back for a little revenge as well. I assume the Ayakashi was yet another Avatar placed in the world to observe (same as all the others), but in the process, devoured tons of lives that began to fill it, which were then freed once that first incarnation was destroyed.
It also then makes sense why its core was a giant eyeball (again, to observe) and why the spear would charge at it immediately once losing a piece of its seal. It's yet another part of Hakumen. It knew it.

I probably would've used those Koukan earlier. They're pretty weak, yeah, and Guren was the powerhouse, but still, swarm them with numbers. Seems like it worked pretty well here. Why wait, Hakumen?

Life can be cruel and unfair. At worst it can traumatize and cripple you. The desire for wanting things to return to the way they were can cost everything and changes nothing. The best way is to keep moving forward, struggle on.
Anger can be powerful but can only get you so far. Let people into your life even if some of them leave you in time.

Fight. Like. Hell. For everything and everyone you love. Always.

Tora is awake.
Oh, you can show Towako's nipples, but not Mayuko's? That's racist.

Mayuko and Tora - loved that scene with them! What a sweet yet very odd scene it would be for them to be on a double date with Ushio and Asako if Tora were to become human, lol.
Scientists started out jerks, but ended up being very brave at the end. Everyone doing their part.
Reunion of Ushio and Tora was perfect - like putting on a pair of comfortable slippers - they just fell right back into their bickering relationship, but you can feel the relief and happiness behind it. :)
