I don't think it's deniable that Jonah has some balls.



Also, I like that Koko is finally acting like herself. I always felt like her personality was BS -- it's nice to get a peek inside her head, for once.

I agree. The real Koko came out to play. I had a feeling Jonah was going to do what he did.

And omg how many times is Lutz gonna take a bullet to the ass



Next weeks ep should be awesome... (business as usual, the show is great)

Jormungand: Perfect Order episode 11


One more episode after this for the grand finale!

Well, latest episode was alright imo although I didn't like Jonah's decision. I think he should rethink about his thoughts but otherwise, I enjoyed this episode. Those night scenes were pretty intense.

indeed

Jonah is still confused and could not see the big picture yet. He is pretty much a kid still.

Koko is a brilliant strategist. Watching her make her final moves for the finale has been awesome.

I can't wait for the finale next week!

Hell yeah. I loved the way she set up Bookman, just to give him a little taste of what shes capable of... and she set up scarecrow LOL. Im hoping Jonah goes back to her when/if he comes to his senses. The finale will be great.

Jormungand: Perfect Order episode 12/Finale


It's over! Noo. Oh well, this episode wasn't too exciting but I still enjoyed it because of the reunion of Koko and Jonah. Hell, I even enjoyed those speeches her crew made one by one.

Overall, a nice series and from what I understand, this concludes from where the manga leaves off so unfortunately, I think there won't be a S3 any time in the future soon.

The best part was how she played that pretty former actress.. served her right

It is great to see the team back together. I would have loved to see more, but I think it's better that it ends this way. Koko is right and wrong about a number of things. I also thought Kaspar's "lecture" was on the mark.

The world would be very different in a post-Jormungand era, but I don't think it would be any more peacful.

For the series as a whole: 8/10.

For a weapon weilding anime, this one is pretty interesting and the animation is really well done.

In this season they tried to develop all the other characters in Koko's crew and Kasper's team as a whole.Most of the big action were in the beginning and towards the end.

The story has gotten more complicated and the season end , leaving it for future OVA and I hope they do because I want to see it animated.This kind of story is better animated.

Oh my the season ending was in a way another cliff hanger. each season seems to represent a phase change in the story.

First season we are given the world and hints at the plot

second season we learn the big secret and get a little 'fifth business' settled.

All set up for a grand finale... I wonder if it will be movie or another season.

here's hoping that Koko and Jonah get their utopia. ... but frankly my faith in humanity is more along the lines of Kaspar's

I agree. Warfare would just revert to something like the WWI era, imo.

Still Koko makes a more interesting 'villian'.. 'hero' ... what IS she exactly? than a tonne of other protagonists and Antagonists both. For example I find her far far more complex and 'interesting' than Psycho Pass's 'Mikishima' who just comes off as a extreme hipster to me. (I'm too cool for Sybil, and a much bigger fan of 'free will' before you even knew what 'free will' was)

I'm sure you'd agree that she's an anti-hero. Perhaps a better description of her would be as an Agent of Change?

I see it this way: Jonah acts as our "everyday man" to give us perspective on Koko's acts. He frames our understanding, so that we are asking the "right" questions when trying to understand Koko. Without him, we'd be tempted to just think of her as a megalomaniac. So, from that perspective, you are right: she's way more complicated than Makishima. And I think that's why we really like her. She's a fascinating mix of villain, hero, and human. I'm sure most people would agree that the main reason we watched this series was to see what Koko would do next.

I'd love to see how this plays out in a Season 3, but I have a feeling we won't get one.

I thought that ending was perfect.

I was all ready for them to go the Death Note/Scarface route, but they didn't.

I loved this show, and if a movie was made I'd watch it.
