THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
The most sad episode in saikano ;__; I didn't expect that Akemi-chan will die :( Even Tetsu-san is killed :/
i guess ive been watching too many depressing animes recently.
saikano delivers its sadness by depictions of losing loved ones.
definitely one of the best episode of the series,
but saikano is rather too mellow compared to some of the newer animes.
This episode is pure tragic, although the drama is bearly there due to
I didn't cry though. Wasn't attached enough to Akemi.
yes, the problem which plagues this anime: poor character development.
One can only help but feel terribly miserable for everything, but cannot actually feel for the characters. War is already bad enough, and they had to top it off with an earthquake...why can't they just let her live? She wanted to live, right? Life is seriously cheap, not even the most realistic of war anime can portray this so heavily. Tetsu's death I believe was the most tragic one. He just wanted to spend his last in the room he built out of memories, only to see it invaded by the enemies...
5/5 was powerful. I don't know why some people review it saying the OST was bad...the soprano solo defined the moments.
One of the most realistic death scenes ever. This anime is highly underrated by many people, because they watching it too superficiality, sorry I can't say it properly in English, this anime has 2nd meaning. It isn't really important with who they are fighting, this (and many other things) is irrelevant.
