My thoughts on ZnT:FnK’s last episode:
A crying Louise… fine.
Saito and Louise getting married before Louise is proceeds with a suicide job… fine.
Saito, having drugged Louise to take her place so she can live on, saying manly lines… “Aw man, he’s damn f*cking GAR!!”
Saito alone, versus an army 70,000-strong (yes, all those lights are the enemy)…. “OMG I’M SHEDDING MANLY TEARS!!! T_T”
Saito, on the brink of getting immolated by enemy fire after a desperately fighting the enemy… “SAITO, YOU WILL ALWAYS BE REMEMBERED IN THE HEARTS AND MINDS OF THE FANS.”
Saito and Louise, reunited suddenly after all that, done deus-ex-machina style… “WHAT THE…. ” /facepalm OTL.
No J.C STAFF. Just. NO. For god’s sake, you totally ruined one of the best parts of this series. The PART which will permanently etch the hero in the hearts and minds of the fans who follow the series. Yes I know this anime is supposed to be a “happy” one, but for god’s sake, you guys totally spoiled it. I’ve tried not to even comment on the god damn lame ED song, which got reeeeealy aggravating after the initial episodes, but totally ruining this part of the story is unforgivable. TOTALLY.
Hell, you could’ve just ended in a cliffhanger, with Saito getting pwned by the anime as the last scene, then do a third season for his return, but no. You decided to cram it all in one BLOODY episode, done haphazardly, just to finish off the series. Even two episodes would’ve been better off… /facepalm. This shall not be forgotten. This shall not be forgiven.
To make it worse, you had to leave out a whole arc with “Boob boob Revolution” Tiffania, only making her a small cameo role to try to justify your deus ex machina. AND, to rub salt on the wound… you had to make Noto Mamiko, with me being her fanboy and all, voice her. OTL
I want to cry. I really want to cry, then beat the hell out of the production team.
