THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Ah, even in the finale, these two girls (Chito andYuuri) are still able to have fun in this desolate world. Talking and eating chocolate...interesting.

Really interesting to see the two discover some footage of past characters. It still invokes a sense of mystery regarding their world and its history. I love the usage of the music for this episode though. The piano tune with the soft melancholic OST really gave me a good impression. it also also nice to see reflection of their adventures together.

This was one of my favorite shows of the season. 9/10.

Well, I guess that my speculation last week was half-correct. They did "pad out" the runtime by flashbacks, but not in the way I expected.

This episode had probably the most changes/additions compared to the manga:

  • The chocolate "reveal" was kinda ruined by showing the label before they even ate it.
  • Almost all the photo/video details outside of Kanazawa & friend, the schoolgirls, and the newborn baby were anime original, especially the war scenes.
  • The flashback chapter was adapted after all, but truncated down into 30 seconds.
  • They really milked Yuu's "death" for all it was worth with all the flashbacks, which I guess could work pretty well for the last episode if you don't know what's coming.
  • For whatever reason, they actually toned down Chito's reaction to hearing that they might be the last two people alive in the city.
  • Maybe because it didn't fit the atmosphere in that exact moment, but when Nuko said goodbye to them, Yuu's "bye" back was removed.
  • The epilogue with the callbacks to earlier episodes was anime original, and them being unsure of the way to the highest level might become a minor continuity error, but the reference to the first episode was probably worth it.

actually. I think it's brilliant that way. It leaves the viewers "to imagine and feel it themselves," which, imo, is crucial.

but the milk over "that scene" and the flashbacks disappoints me, but not bcs it's bad, but bcs it's a sign that that's it, it's the finale. :(

I hope they will announce S2 in a short time, because the manga is getting better and better.

Manga is moving towards a conclusion and a continuation,will be a few years before there is enough material for a 2nd cour.

There are enough side stories for a OVA though.

This whole series was absolutely beautiful. I loved every second of it.
I may be biased, but this is MY perfect series. It just fit my expectations and even blew them away at some parts.
This anime is going to be my favourite for quite a while. I'm so happy I watched it.

2 volumes more than the manga's recent point are enough for one cour. Early 2019 is the quickest possible I think.

"Non-Perishable Chocolate High Calorie". Alriiiiight. Yuuri's dreams have come true. Now if they could just find some cheese. And shouldn't Chito have been able to read the label and see that it was indeed chocolate?

Chito and Yuuri went snooping through Hanazawa's photos...I think he definitely left them there deliberately in order to show Chito and Yuuri some amazing bits of the past.

"They look like they're around our age..." Yes, but how old are you two? I think it's intentionally being left vague so they could get away with that beer scene.

At last, we get a little backstory. Chito and Yuuri's grandpa sent them off on their own when they were really young, probably dying himself shortly after.

Live reaction to the giant cut out of nowhere that ate Yuuri: "Oh. Oh shit no. Oh shit WHAT IS HAPPENING WHAT IS THIS"

What...what the hell are those things? Earth's going to come to an end, but...how much are these things connected to the war and the devastation of humanity? Are Chito and Yuuri really the last two people on Earth, considering how recently they met Kanazawa and Ishii? So many questions...

"As long as I have you, Yuu, I'm happy..." Gaaaaaaaay. I love it.

Season 2 when? 8/10

Always look on the bright side of life eh? :)

Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou has taken over three years now to reach 41 chapters,perhaps the four year mark(Feb) will see chapter 43.

The adaption has used three chapters per episode,in some cases two chapters,with unpublished side stories thrown in here and there.

Episode 12 adapted chapters 27&28 and,as with the first episode,chapter 35.

Currently there is enough published material for three/four episodes or so,leaving the need for 24 more chapters and given one chapter per month;two years
Would figure on 2020 Spring season being the soonest,2020 Fall is my guess.

But there are always OVAs :)

Of course, I am a super optimist fan! >:)

I am actually impressed by Tsukumizu's work ethic. I mean look how she animated the ED single-handedly. And her tumblr. And judging by her twitter, she still has a lotta philosophy to spill. Maybe if the mango sell well, she'll even more be spirited to write in full speed..

oh wait, I forgot the studio is White Fox.. ;_;

The camera part was super moving, can't really explain why. Tears were shed ;_; Also, now I get it where that fish keychain was coming from.

This was the AOTY for me. Hoping for a 2nd season or an OVA in the future.

So three little girls and their little robotics club experiment made it possible for machines to consume material for making more copies of themselves and evolve to more efficiently do their task and accommodate dangerous situations to the next generation that probably lead a hand in human extinction.

that scene with the camera was amazing mixing in the normal life of people while giving backstory on what had happened to everybody. I wonder what happened to Kanazawa and Ishii if it is true that they are the only two left alive. What a great series. 9/10

The camera sequence and the reveal of what the fuck those idol things were was a great way to end the series. Now I just hope that the manga sales skyrocket so Kadokawa will be financially motivated to produce a second season, cause they won't green light whatever doesn't make them money no matter how popular the series is. This was my favorite show this season and I'm so glad that people took notice of it, even just the few who have.

Well, the mushroom lady actually explained the mystery where all the corpses went.

Also she mentioned that Yuu and Chi are the only living humans left. So, are Ishii and Kanazawa dead?

They simply don't know, but what they mean as far as they have seen.
They even said that aside from highest level, so that mean maybe there are human on the highest level.

She said they're the only two humans that they're aware of, but there's no indication of what the scope of their observational powers are, so it's possible she just means she thought humans were completely extinct until she stumbled across Yuu and Chi.

Tbh this is pretty dissapointing for an ending of a series... i really like 11th episode more than this. It feels rushed and forced, and more importantly: WHY NUKO MUST LEAVE THE TRIO!!!

I mean i still love this anime as a whole, even i think this is definitely anime of the season for me, or even be my anime of the year 2017. But I really think Nuko's presence is definitely needed as this show's mascot...

Well whatever, 10/10 for the whole anime and 5/10 for the ending...

Now, I'll just go read the manga to see the continuation.
Try read Spy x Family Manga ^_^
U will love it, i promise...

Finding preserved chocolate on a frozen sub was unexpected. So the camera connected to to the sub's computers huh. But that was a surprisingly large amounts of photos that the camera had though. Seeing all these videos and photos of others just tells you how much they actually lost. The images of war mixed in with the images of happiness though was a great contrast. Yuu getting swallowed by a giant cat though huh. Can't really imagine the cats being the enemies of mankind though. The bond between Chito and Yuu is a deep one so Chito will fight hard to rescue her. So the cats search the cities for weapons to ingest hoping to bring the city back to life huh. But at least their job was done though. Guess the girls journey will continue until the end of times huh.

Tsukumizu's twitter,as you mentioned,gives only the indication she has more of the tale left to tell.
With the girls reaching their initial goal of the city's upper most level,their tour should begin anew.

Beautiful ending to a beautiful show. It was really interesting seeing all of that other stuff on the camera, along with learning more about the kind of being the cut is. There also seemed to be an implication that Kanazawa and Ishii are possibly dead since Yuu and Chito are apparently the only humans left, according to those mushroom head things. It's possible that's not the case since things were kind of vague there, but it's still pretty sad to think about.

I didn't know what to expect from this going in, but it was a pleasant surprise from start to finish and I'm happy I decided to watch it. 7/10.
I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.

Wow they got to find and eat preserved chocolate! Yum! :9 I was surprised to see that the camera connected to the monitors and then it showed all its image and video files. All photos and videos were from the past which were seen by Chii-chan and Yuu for the first time before this post-apocalyptic world. There was a really beautiful background music (Nocturne, wasn't it?) playing while all videos played in sequence: Three cute girls presenting a project, lives of families living peacefully, and then there's the dispute among the politicians and, of course, the war.

So little Nuko was a young one among the mushroom creatures. Their song was truly beautiful. And it looks like they haven't seen Kanazawa or Ishii yet, as they only stated Chii-chan and Yuu were the last humans they've seen on Earth.

I absolutely enjoyed this anime and it was a faithful adaptation of the manga. Or it's probably better. The soundtrack is soothing, and the relationship between Chii-chan & Yuu was always fun to watch. They always wonder about life of past civilization and their conversations sometimes lead to philosophical questions.

Totally a 10/10 from me, and this has been my most favorite anime from 2017 out of all the others I've watched from this year. I gotta continue the manga from where I left off! It's also become one of my favorite manga too.

Thank you, White Fox, for doing a good job adapting this! :D

So, the aliens really were involved on what happened to Earth and is it really true that Chi and Yuu are the ones left alive? How about Kanazawa-san and Ishii-san? What.

I thought this show is gonna go Made In Abyss on me when that big-ass alien creature ate Yuu. Ohmygod.

I have so many queries, though, and I hope the manga will answer most of it.

So, a war happened and machines somehow got involved and aliens, too? Hehe. So many questions. Tasuketeeeeee!

I guess with what the aliens told them two that they're the ones left alive on Earth, they'll be together forever. Waaah. This makes me want to start reading the manga. I wish these girls to be forever safe and not be harmed because most likely those aliens were dead wrong that they're the ones left alive. Not me, aliens! Hahaha.

That was a very beautiful and unique show. One of the best SOL anime I've watched. 9/10

Wow this episode delivered quite a bit in terms of backround storytelling, be it the history of earth or Chi and Yuu. Highly memorable episode for me.

Very good show overall,the concept was interesting and well presented,the kind of vibe I got from this is something unique and nothing I could find in any other series.

7,5/10
One Piece episode 914 & 915 were a mistake.

I was taken by surprise that the camera was able to connect to the submarine's computers, which gave Yuuri and Chito a HUGE library of pictures, clips and events that happened in the past. I'm also curious about the girl standing next to Kanazawa in one of the pictures. Is she alive still?

The big creature that swallowed Yuuri before spitting her back out transformed into a mushroom-like form as they ate all of the missile that the submarine had as they explained about how, from their knowledge, that Yuuri and Chito were the only humans they've encountered, before they departed towards the sky. It was also them who made the song that Chito and Yuuri heard a few times as well. The full version of the song was simply beautiful and left me feeling goosebumps. =)

I'll rate this show either an 8 or a 9. This was one of the more surprising shows for me this year and I hope that there'll be more content to adapt into a second season if it ever happens. =3

So basically Chii and Yuu chan are the only survivor that are left in the end,. Kanazawa and Ishii might possibly dead?.,. The white mushroom thing also did tell them that their world is near to the end,. damn, this is so sad,. the flashback scene also killed me,. especially when they decided to put Nocturne piano ost in the scene,I had to admit that Girl last tour is one of the hella uniqe sof anime I ever seen tbh ~ 10/10,

And so the final is like that. Both Yuu and Chi discovered what happen before. The War and also some of Inventor's Documentaries. And if the giant cut thingy said is true that both of them is the last human remain, then Yuu surely know what "to do". Hold Chi's hand and do "something" later. :3
Though I don't know the meaning of this episode's Title.

So those things are aliens (..?) that eat weapons and any electronics that they can use as a power source. And the removal of electronics/technology, along with the huge war, is what has forced the world to restart. Something like that anyway.

Supposedly, Yuu and Chi are the only survivors (the two they met probably died) except for the conveniently unsurveyed top layer. This leaves a lot of mystery as to what they will find.

Welp, guess I'm reading the manga. 9/10

Fantastic finale.

It was real interesting to see the camera sync upto the main server or whatever and have that huge montage of humanity's self destruction. Along with the soundtrack, the giant robots destroying the land, for some reason I felt it was like a scene out of Evangelion or something. xD

You know, I feel like if they played Weight of the World from NieR:Automata at the final scene where the Mushroom things describe the end of world and fly away, it would've been even more amazing and would also fit so well with the theme of hopelessness that Yuu describes as they fly away.

Lot of really nice heartwarming moments for Yuu and Chi this episode, Yuri vibes ftw. XD

Overall, this show always felt very surreal to me, it's strangely captivating and beautiful despite the desolate dystopian world it takes place in, much like the game I mentioned previously. There's a lot of interesting commentary on various things both simple and complex but the simplistic presentation of this made it shine. Yuu and Chi are great characters and the overall direction of the series from the various scenes to the soundtrack was always on point. Definitely up there as one of my favorites from Fall.

9/10, S2 please.

How Tsukumizu was part of the staff as series supervisor made this show great. The first part was really powerful they even added some scenes aside from the photos and some videos like the wars and stuff how that tiny device holds the records of humanity. Did their grandfather commit suicide? I was sure as hell he did. Pretty much a good ending for the show despite my concern last week great job White Fox.

As a whole, this anime is definitely overrated, but enjoyable. The scene with the pictures and videos was very nicely done.
