Ok, how the hell did Keita DIE!! wtf hes only a grandfather, he should only be in his 40 or 50s, those grandchildren of his are only like 5 years old!

That and is Keita a fucking idiot? Im not rooting for anyone in particular, but why Akane? she says she betrayed him to save him, but didnt she basically kill him at one point, or atleast think she did? Why in the hell would you hook up with a women who not only betrayed you, but supposedly "killed" you at one point? lol wtf.

For the first part wasn't it because he burned through a lot of Terra while still a sub? Or did he stop being a sub after getting marks on both his hands? Idk, it's the only reason I can think of him getting older much faster (or maybe they just wanted to do a bittersweet ending)

Yeah that was a really sad ending, maybe it's the way Kuro said "thank you my beloved Contractee" that really got to me.

Yeah as many stated all those recycled scenes were wasting of the screen time.they should have rather concentrate on what happened after because it wasn't bad without recyclings.
Overall very good show 8/10

I'm not used to watch the opposite gender as punchbag in some fight scenes but that's just me. And sometimes I wonder why no ones has guns in the first place, why do they have to fist fight? This isn't Street Fighter O.o The plot was mostly predictable and the syncro transformation was used too many times imo. The only good thing was the fighting scenes with the cool background music :P Based only for the action I will give this a 8/10 instead 7/10.

it feel unrealistic for me that Keita finish with akane honestly. i didnt hate the ending, but we have not even seen one time keita feeling for akane, for me its was more a unrequited love that a true love between both, i would just have prefer that Keita finish with kuro( at least its was more real), but yeah its was not a bad serie though

p.s 7/10 and the episode was pretty a waste of time, except the end

There were many problems with this series but at least there were fights unlike SnS which was basically two girls fighting for one boy.
As for ending while I do agree it was a waste of time showing recaps in last episode but still I liked the last scenes and the fact they went for better ending. It still sucks for not having a kuro x keita kiss scene.
6/10

For most of its part, the last episode was an offering of closure.

I'm content of the result of Keita endeding up with Akane. They deserve each other since it's been them all along from the beginning. It's only because of the things that happened around them that their ever growing relationship had to take a detour.

The Keita & Kuro pairing was only really good when it comes to combat. Their synchro even in its deepest connection/level they attained were formed only in combat. Their feeling for each other can be ascertained to comrades in arms who through many battles develop a sense of duty and loyalty of watching over each other. It is usually not romantic but more like a deep mutual respect and care for each others welfare.
Other than that Keita longed to see Akene when she was missing and so was Akane towards Keita. Kuro knew of that that's why she choose to separate herself from Keita aside from the fact her being around means more innocent lives will be wasted. Kuro had to go so that Keita can live a normal full life with Akane. She cannot make a selfish decision like ask or take Keita to where she belongs. If Keita really loved Kuro he would've chosen to come with her when she was stepping out the door for the last time leaving Akane.

I can understand a lot of fans for a Keita x Kuro to happen but from where I see it:
I see nothing romantic between them so having them pair up in the end would make no sense at all. Kuro maybe an ancient being ageless with no way to determine her age yet she's still a kid in our eyes: Innocent and yet to develop.
Keita is already mature and knows a lot about the world. Akane also. She for most parts knows Keita and understands him almost completely which means she'll be very patient with him. Akane is very beautiful and well developed both inside and out so who wouldn't want to be with someone who is in a "my waifu" level.

the first episode was hype. i wish the tone and fights were as good as that throughout.

unfortunately, everything after that was downhill. i wanted to drop it when i saw keita and his stupid face staring while kuro was getting her ass kicked every episode.

things picked up though once he got "powers" and stopped being a useless coward. i'm glad the plot shifted too. 70% of it was focused on the doppeliner nonsense with that annoying brat and his ever smiling face. ugh.

i'd say i liked a third of the anime plot wise. there was some good music and fights too, and i liked a few of the characters on both sides. (<3 Nam)

i didn't see the plot twist with the brother coming, so that redeemed the "story" for me. what i totally did see coming was the teraexe attack though. as overused as the synchro stuff was, it was somewhat endearing to see that at the ending.

it was messy in a bunch of places but i enjoyed it.

Inescapable Fate . A retake on their first meeting .
Love that cherished through the years of support .
Perfect episode ~ <3 .

Fate . "Developments of events beyond a person's control." It may be or not .
The Complexity of plot has far exceeded my expectations . It was splendid .
But the 'blend' of the genres was not able to hold its potential to be--in greater odds--a marvelous adaptation because of Inconsistency . Nonetheless , The ending was good to be satisfying but It has bitterness . Might read the Manga :D
