Loved it. Now I'm annoyed that I have to wait a week for the final episode. And it's the last one! Grrrr. Maybe we'll get a second season. There are enough books for it!

Episode 24/Finale



Alright, this is the finale. It seems that Chiyu's real power isn't actually healing but something else that asshole Nomi has never thought of.

I'm not going to spoil much here but I thought overall, this series was decent with the soundtrack, visual presentation, delivery, and some of the characters' development. I found that the story seems to drag a bit and the finale did not conclude well. Some of the intertwined filler arcs also threw me off balance. Still though, it was an entertaining watch and I'll leave it at that.

I loved it. The final episode provided a great payoff for this arc. Take that Nomi!

Overall this series was great. It's rare to get a character like Haru that is so far removed from what a traditional anime hero is perceived as. His growth, and his friends, throughout the series was very well done. And I have to disagree: there was no filler. Everything connected together to provide a satisfying conclusion.

My only complaint: No season 2 has been announced yet! Based on some of the characters shown at the end, I really hope we'll get one.

BTW, Megumi's glare as the train pulled away was priceless.

Hmm, I thought the mini arc that focused on Hime during one of the side stories (episodes 18-19) was considered filler. Also, I can't say the conclusion was connected too well. As drawn from the finale, one of the main antagonist (Nomi) is defeated here. However, Hime did not reach her goal of level 10 as that's one of her primary objective of the series. The fact right now stands that Haruyuki will continue to stand by her and help her reach that goal. The goal is still not reached and the truth of the Accelerated World remains a mystery. Until that becomes clear enough, I don't think the series has a total satisfying conclusion.

However, if you mean the conclusion for this season, then I agree with you for the satisfying part, just not the entire series/franchise as a whole. It is however actually impossible for the series to pull off an ultimatum finale here though as the LN is still continuing so I'm also agreeing with you here somewhat. I did give this series a 8/10 though on entertainment levels as well as delivery with the soundtrack, visual, characters, and other factors.

I think what I wrote in my original statement might of been misunderstood here but this was an overall decent series imo

I hope there will be a S2 also. The OVA of the series is out in raw right now so might check that out when the subtitles comes out. Ultimately though, I thought the series was pretty decent also and glad that s.o.b Nomi got the beating that he deserved.

People have called it a filler, but I think they are wrong. Filler means it has no connection with the main plot. This did. First, that mini arc showed there was an attack on two fronts. The group associated with Nomi was obviously going after Hime while Nomi went after Haru. In addition, due to that attack...

That's her goal, one that Haru wants to support. The season wasn't about getting level 10. If it was, it would have been exceedingly rushed and I would have been disappointed. Instead, I would argue that this season was about Haru's growth into a true partner for Hime, and I say that was done very well.

That's what a second season is for! :)

And more seriously, there are plenty of series that have "incomplete" or ambiguous ends. That isn't necessarily a bad thing. Haru and Hime walking "into the sunset" as dedicated partners but a big smile on my face.

Fair enough

I can't wait the OVA to be subbed soon this month. It should be a fun watch.

One thing that bothers me about the final episode:

This series is on my "Definitely want a second series" list.

The last episode was immensely satisfying but only because Nomi got freakin executed! Aaaaaaw YEAH! That little piss-ant bit the dust hard! Ahem... But except for that everything else felt very cheesy and overly dramatic, atleast for my taste.

As for this last arc. I couldn't really enjoy it much, and for a kinda wierd reason. I simply hated the characters behavior too much. The sort of personality Nomi has is probably the best one you can use if you want to seriously piss me off. Also Haru was more of a idiot then usual, Taku acted as best he could I guess but Chiyu was being a complete tool til the end. Man, characters havn't taken this much enjoyment away from me since GTO. Seriously, the only reason I kept watching GTO was for the satisfaction when he put those god damn pricks in their place... jeesh.

Another thing. I simply CAN'T get over how Haru looks. I don't care that he's fat or that he's short. The problem is that he is unproportional. He is TOO fat and TOO short. It looks ridiculous. When he stands next to female characters he reaches to around their elbows. The awarage height of a japanese woman is 160CM~. We cut that in half and add 20CM just to be nice we get 100CM. Haru is 100CM tall and yet twice as broad as all other characters. In conclusion, he's a fat dwarf. If they made him a little taller or slimmer everything would be fine.
Such a little thing and yet it has been bugging me the whole anime.

*proofreads* Wow... I really can't write something without sounding overly pissed and it turning into a rant... Sorry

not at all since to use Physical Full Burst means you lose 99% of your points so that means you still have 1% and we know a level 9 burst linker will have tons of points
