Thank you for creating Darling in the Franxx. It has its flaws; the build-up to the final moments of the show were cliché. But the actual final moments of the show, the last few scenes, were different. As an ending point for the cast and the final moment of the relationships between Hero and Zero Two it's quite bitter Sweet. It's not what I was hoping for in an ending, but I still accept it, for as sad it was, the ending struck me as profoundly beautiful. And also manage to teach me something. It taught me this "no journey is perfect, but that doesn't mean you are not allowed to find beauty in the imperfections." In conclusion, for me, Darling in the Franxx is simply the best, and it's managed to ingrain itself into my heart.

I guess that he was forced by government to direct ShitXX.

Darling in the franxx was only good because of 02, everything on the show was really bad


Atlos | Dec 13, 2020 6:35 AM
It's a shame people only know him for franxx and not his other work

Franxx was a great show, even if an ending was a bit rushed.
Looking forward to see more masterpieces.
