My feelings of annoyance once again re-surfaced when Brandon and Maria's first encounter was shown. It was nice FINALLY getting to understand how a guy as rough and silent as Brandon won the heart of a girl as sweet as Maria, but it also made me dislike him all over again for not getting it on with her. What an idiot!

Seeing Harry as a punk again, chasing after Brandon and Maria with the gang, was a nice way to jump back to the best, pre-monster part of the series, after having seen how he'd transformed into a cruel old man. The bit in the toilet where Harry realised he'd been dreaming was sad: you could tell how much he wanted to go back to the old days, and his emotions changing from joy to sadness when he saw what Brandon had become in the present said it all.

Isn't it always the way that people never know they're happy until they lose what they've got? After everything Harry had done to reach the dizzy heights of the position of #1 crime lord, he was still happier when he had nothing but his friends by his side as a kid.

Loved the flashback. It puts everything that's happened in perspective.

And it seems Maria never had a shot from day one. As much as Brandon cared for her, first the street life and then his duty to MIllenion came first.

That Maria flashback was great. Honestly, so many good things happen during the second part, and with such perfect continuity from the first part (where you'll notice it's hinted every boundary will be trespassed), I don't understand people who discard it so easily. Like how Bear is paralleled with his old buddy for choosing his daughter, or how Lee tried to be more like Harry but went full sadist. I've seen monster fests (like House of the Dead by Uwe Boll), and the second part barely is, contrary to what some people said.

A pretty good flashback. The difference between what Harry was and what he has become was huge.

Great episode, I think the anime should have ended with their laughs. Or maybe not

Sad taste you have there kid you came up to me in the first place making you look more like a kid who got slapped without me even knowing it and start crying about it to me

So happy to see Harry suffering, he deserved it all! He should have let Maria and Mika live, but now, let's kill them just coz they remind me of Big Daddy...
It was nice to see how Brandon and Maria meet.

Oh yea kill everyone else but not the bastard who back stabbed you , killed everyone you wanted to protect and manipulated the rest. Also was high and mighty just a few days ago while trying to kill you again at the hand of your previous comrades but it's all good.

Unbelievable.

Just another reason why Brandon and Maria belonged together. Brandon you baka! That flashback was nice to see. Those were the best times. Now I hope Harry gets a bullet in his head.
If you see that my post is exactly 1 month old (or more) from when it was posted... Don't waste your time, especially when you want to reply with something petty & insignificant. Assume that I've moved on (because I have).

Chapter emotional, and possibly, in the absence of the latter, one of the best in the series. Although misfortunes continues to sin of predictability.

Capitulo emotivo, y posiblemente, a falta del último, uno de los mejores de la serie. Aunque por desgracias sigue pecando de previsibilidad.

The flashback was a very appropriate touch to show just how much has changed since the start. Just goes to show Harry had his freedom all along. It was his ironic quest for absolute freedom via money and power that enslaved him. The way he snapped out of the past with himself and Brandon running by was powerful. And now here comes the end of the line.

The flashback scene was very well done. It brought back all the good memories of Brandon's and Harry's friendship and their time they had spent together with the rest of their gang. It was also nice to see how Brandon met Maria for the first time.
