Incredibly bittersweet.

After so much buildup I was hoping there would be something more but I guess that's all we're gonna get. I hate to say it, but I am very disappointed with this ending.
Ok™

I think he should probably just go to his friends or really anyone, tell them that he hit his head very very hard, and start checking facts.. cause either way, hes going to look insane.. better to be in [C]ontrol of that lol.

Ending was amazing. That last battle is the best. What really intrigued me a lot is that there was a show of the “Power Above” in the following,

that is 100% him considering he has behind him all these Masakakis. His appearance in front of Kimimaro is rather mystifying considering all his face does not show up. When he has that creepy smile and Kimimaro is on this bed, I started to smell a scheme developing. I wonder if he has anything to do with Kimimaro's dad. One thing for sure is that he knew of Hanabi in the spoiler
and many other things as they were going on. This tells me he had a interest in Kimimaro as soon as he entered the financial district. Could it be that his father is a Masakaki that was human before? Could it be that the “Power Above” found what it had been looking for in Kimimaro but his father did not have it? All the questions are intriguing.

The other part was obviously the amazing kiss as follows,

it may be censored but that hug and all showed more than enough for what it was meant to show but yeah the kiss censors were shit at least we know from the looks of here that their lips touched and that Mashu was adorable while kissing from her shy reaction. I loved her smile here but WTF @ the following spoiler
why would Mashu suddenly disappear? Anyway I am damn happy for a Kimimaro x Mashu success.

About the battle, the fight was the most amazing of the fights in the whole series and that is damn just. The budget was desirable but it was still a notch up. IMO it went by too fast so I decided to put out some points since I went frame by frame because it was going fast that fight.



About the end, so what does the end of this anime reveal? Well for one as things started to change due to Kimimaro's press reversal, Hanabi saw the light and was later seen here as kindergarten teacher whom the one who died never does die and thus she inspired to be like that person, which is why she became a kindergarten teacher. Jennifer looks very much alive. Masakaki looks to be going very wild at the reversal. The city itself looks so bright was all these effects affecting it. We see thus a Kimimaro that looks to be at peace however things have changed a lot in the spoiler
such as everything is being paid by USA money and no more yen but dollar being strong. From the looks of Hanabi's house, well it does not look like she lives there anymore with that family coming out. I also knew in the end that Masakaki would come back to Kimimaro for a payment. What was most precious to me was the picture in the spoiler
that gives me such a good reminder.


About miscellaneous stuff, for one this girl in the beginning looks hot. The information guy is creepy as always with his teeth. Looks like C is detectable now? Masakaki's evil smile never stop amazing me at how nasty it is. The Midas money becoming real in the spoiler
was pretty nice for a sudden device to start panicking a bit about its effects. Uh oh C is coming again towards Japan. Loved the Mikuni part with his sister in the spoiler
especially since at one point she disappears. Do wonder what it means. Jennifer at first looked really insane. I think the symbol for Control is rather intriguing. In the end it was a nice series. 9/10

I'm laughing like a madman here, I can't stop. Nante yu ka... how should I put it... I just don't know whether to give it a fail rating after all or just leave 9 as it was. That ending was, uh, underwhelming, but I guess not the worst ever? or something... A lot of wtfs going on too... Didn't completely stray away from cliches... And A LOT of questions left unanswered as was expected with only one episode to wrap this massive thing up.

So was it... um, divine intervention? Masakakis are, like, angels? The hell's with 'everyone's right, you all fought to make the world a better place and the world got better!' speech anyway...?

Oh, and the Financial District is immortal, haha! Totally knew it. You can mortgage the future as many times as you want!

MashuMaro fans will be happy, I personally don't care.

And Hanabi never knew Kimimaro, eh?

Do Mikuni's words about staying in the now mean he's erased from the reality or what? And his sister was brought up in the final battle as his selfish reason. Nobody saw that coming, yeah right. What happened to him anyway.

Ugh, I guess I'll be returning to this threat when I'm finally capable of coherent thought.

It might not be permanent. I mean he did reverse some of the changes, and even brought his professors kids back. It might be possible for someone else to restore his future.

But yeah, it does suck. I guess he'll think twice before saving the present again. Maybe he'll find some benefits in being a ghost-like person.

Well...it wasn't a bad ending? But it leaves me feeling wanting...more?

So everything is righted to how it was/should've been, and Kimimaro is left with nothing to show for it all? No hanabi, no Mysu, no Dad, no $?

Well..it's a happy ending I guess, though it feels kind of weak. Will give it an 8/10 it wasn't bad, just bit bizarre ending.

I'm not even going to try and guess wtf was up with the Angels & Divine Intervention crap. And guess Mikuni...died/stopped existing happily?

And...all is well and over. Boring.

I loved that ending. C got off to a bit of a slow start in my opinion, but it got better and better as it went on. I shall eagerly await Nakamura Kenji's next anime.

Actually, I think things are back to normal. And it looks like he still has a future, so who knows what will happen between him and Hanabi. As for his dad, he cant really fix that.

This ending does seem to hint a continuation.

I thought it was an amazing end, definitely the best anime of the Spring season.
All the characters were intriguing and plot and concept it revolved around was executed in a fantastic way.

Entertaining all the way to the end, I will give it a 10.

The ending wasn't terrible, but it didn't do a very good job of really concluding things. It felt like there could be a second season but I can't even begin to think about the plot that they could use for a season 2.

Derp. All in all I think that the show started off fresh and with an amazing plot, but as it went on there was just too much and the plot started to gain ADD. I still enjoyed it though, even though my score for the show dropped a point. :U

I'll admit I enjoyed the fight this episode, but the rest of the show was pretty ass. Very unfortunate, I was really looking forward to this in the pre-season.

The ending was kinda lame-duck, imo. But that's just how I think about all open endings.

I feel bad for Yoga. Also, Japan is now totally dependent on the US financial district.

I believe there will be a second season! >8U

What's confusing is the ending. Kimimaro becomes ghost-like and he's unable to make contact with live people is what I'm getting the message? That just sounds a bit unfortunate, but this isn't exactly a closure to one of the most hard-worked anime to be only 11 episodes. I mean seriously, every ep I downloaded is nearly 500 MB or even more because of the animation qualities (yes, I like HD 720p).

Anyway, I believe that there's a slight possibility there could be a second season. It's hard to say what story can follow this, but the Financial District is immortal, and Masakaki offers his services to Kimimaro for the later future. That's what I think.

I rate this anime a 9/10, since it's really good, but there are some faults.

So Kimimaro is now stuck outside of Past, Present and Future and Mikuni went....god knows where. Well, that was a rather...unexpected ending :o

On the plus side though, the battle between Mikuni and Kimimaro/Q and Mashu was awesome :D

Overall Score (ep): 5/5
Overall Score (series): 10/10

A very original concept with very bad pacing. I really wanted to enjoy this anime more since I love the concept and the art(CGI was horrible) but sadly they went so slow then had to go flying to get to the end in the short amount of time. But I really did like the ending a bitter sweet feeling that he was able to save the country but destroyed the world he once knew. The ending also gives me hope of some kind of sequel with the market being immortal hopefully they fix the pacing if so this can become a great series but without it it's just good.

7 destroyed futures out of 10.

Well we got a nice action scene.

Why didn't they do this shit before? Have talking and thought during action scenes so we don't have empty action and boring talk.

Then we get some weird shit. THEY PULLED AN EVANGELION ON US

And the ending, I assume we can interpret as everyone has infinite future, sort of like Yumekui Merry's shitty anime filler ending moral.

It's not like Kimimaro has no future. He and everyone else, still have futures. He just has to choose for himself.

Pacing is off once again.

And the entire thing just went really in circles. It's as if the creators didn't know what to do with this setting and concept. At the end, it was very underwhelming.

"Let's throw in some random shit and hope people like it" --> Sorry but they ain't SHAFT.

8/10 still. At least we got some flashy scenes.
bla bla bla
The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

first, why they censored the kiss scene?=_= what´s wrong in showing their lips? that was so not fair. Stupid censoring.

Second...does anyone can explain me the end? because i dont think i understood it.
So Kimimaro is what now? i loved the way everyone was happy and all the pinky bubbles but Kimimaro, what happened to his future? Does nobody can see him at all?

Anyway, good show overall;)

The ending was nice IMO but yeah somethings were left unanswered and i do hope for an OVA or something to clear that up. (Hoping for a 2nd season)

I liked this anime and I give this an overall 8/10 because of the interesting concept, the execution was good but with only 11 eps not everything can be done at the right pace so yeah the pacing at the end was kinda off and could have been better.

PS. I TOTALLY ship Msyu x Kimimaro :3

There needs to be better understanding of this of how he became a ghost. I can't find anywhere that says so..

Oh and btw, this ending is similar to another anime, like The Big O. This anime and that have the same directors, and yet the ending seems so similar. They both somehow reset everything to what it was at the beginning, but just with slight changes.

Okay..the ending was okay. And it was pretty confusing. But I gave it a 5/5 because: This is a reason for a second season. There has to be a second season now. If not..I'll be mad o.O

I was expecting more but anyway, I guess this will do although it could have been better.

This show was one of my highly anticipated show this season but with the plot itself, the pacing was kinda off due to the series length.

and left a lot of questions that made the viewers interpret what's happening in the show in various ways.

I don't know if who's to blame for some flaws of the show,

but Nakamura here was fine with me although I prefer his Mononoke and Kuchuu Buranko for his artistic direction.

Takagi Noboru did well with the script but as to the series composition, I'm not sure about that.

Looking forward for more of their works.

Overall, this series was did entertain me for some reason even with the flaws in it

and my credits goes to the interesting concept which I greatly admire.

So ok, Kimimaro is now ghost-like but i think, and just based on Masakaki offering him business for later, that his "future" or wherever is just waitting to fit in the new future?

Or maybe Mysu true form as a human would brought him back?

Because even with the kiss i still think she is his sister.

Overall i loved this show, i knew itll gonna let me waitting for more since it was just 11 episodes, and i really want and ova or special, not so much a 2nd season.

Way too confusing and not enough closure to finish the series.
Pulled off some random stop midway during the battle. This is where I was thrown off guard.
However, the series did have a good run.

Final score: 8/10.

the action was good and it was interesting but still..... WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED? there's too many QUESTIONS?

what happened to Mikuni and his sister?
who was Msyu? was she Hanabi? what about Hanabi?
so Japan uses dollars now but Masakaki is still around? did Kimimaro lose his future?
what really happened to his father?

seems just WAY TOO RUSHED. it really needed a 2nd season to fully delve into everything. hopefully it gets one....
