This sums it up for me. I feel bad that Mikage's death and rebirth did almost nothing for me. I'll admit the end scene was a little heartwarming, but I just feel a complete disconnect for these characters. It's not even the slow pace that's throwing me off, but the complete lack of direction. I love slice of life and character driven anime, but even the action in this is just boring the complete hell out of me. I'll give it to the halfway point.
So I didn't think I was emotionally attached to these characters at all really. I liked them enough to want to keep watching the show, and I liked the idea of their relationships to each other, but their bond didn't feel particularly deep to me and when Mikage died I didn't actually care. I thought of him more as a catalyst and not really as a character you get super attached to.
But then watching Teito clutch his torn jacket as he sobbed made me feel something. And then when Frau was explaining that Mikage's soul came back in the adorable rabbit-dragon and they showed the shot with his hand on Teito's shoulder I was suddenly crying. I was really confused about why I was crying because I didn't think I was that into this show, but apparently before I'd even realized I was invested in it, this show hit me right in the feels.
