THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Oop and it's over. Izumi is pissed not that I'm surprised. The way Aki struggles is kinda odd. Dat bro fist

Well at least Mirai feels more pleasant now. "Thank You".

Working together to defeat the youmu. On the other side, it seem like the two adults have past? At least that megane man "has given up being a human"?

He got his youmu side back, but she's disappearing. Before that she got what she wished him to do. They are back to the life before everything happened. Then she appeared again!

Likely. I think they aired the AD so it's likely to air during Spring.

Classic KyoAni moe shot of Mirai to end the show on. Overall i enjoyed the show, especially the last two episodes.

Does anyone know how much of the light novel the anime covered?

I guess Kyoami is such a wonderful producer of anime that they don't feel the need to provide us with much in the way of explanation, resolution, or coherency in the final episode...
Please don't feed the trolls!

KyoAni's production and direction remain as fantastic as ever. Too bad thats about all I can say about this episode.

This was actually a great episode until the very very last minute. Why was it necessary to just randomly revive Mirai? It's blatantly obvious there is going to be more but still it would have served as a better cliffhanger.

Ugh I wanted to like Kyoukai more and I really WAS starting to get into it in the last couple of eps but this ending is just meh. 7/10

Akihito took control of the KnK, he probably has managed control the thing to the point that he was able to summon Mirai back. I guess.
But does that gives us Mirai back? She said her real self was dead long ago back in the winter world, doesn't that mean that Mirai in the end of the episode is not good ol' Mirai?

Aki's mom all along was probably to have Akihito take control of the KnK, and remember that the last phrase she said as she fled from Izumi was "To be continued" So yeah... this series is not over yet.

I expected a kiss scene, I mean, the head patting was good because of the build up, but I wanted something else haha.

The finale felt rushed, I know it was all S2 beat everywhere but... I wished for more
The battle was cool, and WOW, the first scene was really nice, it somehow felt so sincere.

Now we waits for the OVA.

He cried on the right and it vanished. Maybe it was BtBs power but that certainly wasn't any kind of control, since he was surprised.

Also why would she be summoned back on the school roof (other than dramatic presantation)

Well then her revival should have been saved for the continuation when they can give a proper explanation.

I was feeling really good about that ending, until that ending. It just ended up being too much back and forth "he's dead, he's not", "she's dead, she's not".. The tone at the end was dreary and realistic with him coming to terms with a future without her, it would have been fine to just leave a hint that she could come back.

That long fight scene inside KnK was a feast for the eyes though, my god.

Meh anime till the end. The only parts I enjoyed were when Akihito went berserk in youmu form.

Final rating 5/10.
Would've been a 6/10 if Mirai stayed dead and not magically reborn. So cliched.

I think he has no idea of what he can do with his powers.
All the series gave us was Aki absorbing the whole dimension-bending creature called KnK/BtB, it didn't explain what powers does that gives to Aki.
Maybe he didn't really expect it to work, that was why he was surprised.
Furthermore, School Roof because there is where they first meet, it is the first place he thought about when the ring vanished from his hands, which means it is also the first place that comes to his mind when he thinks about Mirai.

I really wished KyoAni had made it obvious that it was Akki using BtB that brought Mirai back... one single sentence could have really made the whole ending better.

Anyway... Mirai surely was cute on the end scene... And surely was creepy on the death scene "IM SO HAPPY" "IM SO HAPPY" ugh, this will haunt me.

I was originally gonna rate this lower because it wasn't that interesting a show (I'm not that keen on KyoAni anyway, and this had that same dull feeling that most KyoAni does for me), but 7/10 is what I've ended up at, if merely because part of it actually made me feel something. I feel like my rating would've been higher if Mirai had stayed dead, though.

So the sake of having the anime for anime? LOL, although I love it. I was laughing when Mirai and Aki were fighting. Comically... And Aki was staring right up her skirt.

Aki got ride of KnK, then got it back. Everything back to sq 1. Nothing changed.

And so Izumi nee-sama also a half youmu and human? And probably Aki's mama as well...?

Hmm, I think it was Aki that made Mirai came back.

Probably we might get a S2.

It is not back to square one because Aki now fully controls the KnK... he will not got berserk anymore for example, and probably can switch youmu powers at will.

Was smiling like an idiot when that ended.

Anyway a nice evolution from Munto TV, though I could have done without the whoring the cast (Kanbara mother plus all that photoshoot part-time job), even without Akihito and Hirohmi's fetishes, but I have a feeling those might be in the novel.

lots of confusing and unanswered questions but i guess that leaves room for OVA's or a second season. the moment where mirai vanished and the cute head patting scene was nice. the way she came back like 5 minutes later basically made the other scene have no point zzz.

6/10

It's unfortunate for me to say I think this might be my least favorite KyoAni show especially considering I was looking forward to it but it really is a show fueled by emotions instead of logic and I just was not emotionally attached to any of the characters really.

5/10

The first half was well crafted, the action scenes were pure eye-candy and the comedic banters between Mirai and Aki nailed it. Though when the second half passed through, it passed through like a bullet train, very rushed.

Too much information in the form of revelations, explanations and twists being shoved in before the episode ended. Detracted the enjoyment there, if anything this episode could have been divided into two for a better experience and a more dramatic ending.

Seems no one respects Aki's mother, not the son, not the stabbing Izumi and definitely not the kicking Sakura.

Thought they forgot about Ayaka and Ai, seems not. Also I can't look at Ai the same after the Idol Saiban episodes.

I half expected Aki to just suck her in like he did with the Kyoukai no Kanata, this way she can actually exist, or in a much romantic manner, live in his very heart.

For some reason, I was never emotionally involved with this show at all and that made me unable to actually feel or care about the characters death, revival and love affair.

That ending reminded me of
ending, should have left it with the death or show possible revival until bringing her back for real in season 2.

Overall, 7/10. Even with eye-candy fights and scenery, good comedy, and some excellent episode direction, it still felt hollow somehow.

Well kind of failed to enter my heart a little, tried hard to start caring about the characters but in the end I just didn't. Didn't like how she just showed up at the end there. Oh well, guess it's been a fun ride, still think the other girl is way cooler and cuter. 6/10

Ok.... so that ending had some great moments. but NONE of them made any sense. This show left wayyyy too many unanswered questions, plotholes, and other nonsense. And how the hell did Mirai come back to life? This reminds me of Guilty Crowns ending because its really cool looking and emotional, but if you even slightly try turning your brain on, you realize it makes absolutely no sense as too WHY all of this is happening. Honestly, the kind of mistakes this show made aren't even the type that a 2nd season could resolve. The show wasn't bad, but it was wildly inconsistent in its storytelling. There was a stretch where I thought the show had picked itself up and made a real argument for being a great show, but for every one of these moments, there was an overwhelming flaw in the storytelling. I gave this episode a 3 because it did have its moments, but really all they had to do to get a 5 from me is address what the hell was up with the Spirit World Warrior dude, NOT bring Mirai back to life, have a better resolution with Kyoukai no Kanata instead of just putting it back in Aki, and not giving us more questions than answers. I really hope KyoAni doesn't try a season 2 with this, even though it wasn't bad, I expect more out of them for sure.

On the one hand its nice to see more people coming around to my point of view this week with this lacklustre finale but at the same time its like what did people expect. Anyway I knew it was going to be weak but at least I finally felt the direction of the fights in the last little while. Nowhere near enough to get the series out of the 4/10 category it found itself in by the halfway point but at least it didn't sink much lower. Just really weak cast, lack of development for much of anything and lame gag comedy killed this show as a fantasy action series.

I just want to know why they couldn't conclude this series solidly without trying to stuff everything into the last few minutes. Honestly, I liked the series until it came down to this. Eff. We won't even see a continuation if it gets one until a few seasons from now.

A big "bleh" was all I was thinking while watching this final episode. Overall the action was decent and somewhat entertaining, the art is nice, the jokes got overused and were unpleasant most of the time, really weak and inconclusive "ending". It started off okay but then went downhill at the second half.

Episodes 10 and 11 were brilliant but I thought the ending was pretty blah, and overall this show had way more dull moments than interesting ones. Unfortunately I continue to be underwhelmed by KyoAni. I had hope for this show because it is more within my sphere of interest, but it only delivered in small bits and pieces.

This was a good episode to end the series on. It had a feeling of having a nice epilogue, but at the same time I didn't want it to end... It was a very enjoyable show that got better as it went on, and the last few episodes were pretty awesome!

I'm going to miss "Fuyukai Desu" though...

I'll give this an 8/10 I think...
