Don’t worry, Hiiragi survives too, just he got kidnapped by Anzelotte again.
Grand finale battle with Anzelotte & Co. + Bell Zephyr vs Kirihito and his hax God mode, no prizes for guessing who won. I’ve gotta say though, they kinda cheated out a bit by focusing so much on Hiiragi going in to Elis’s dream to save her then Anzelotte reviving Kureha (didn’t expect her to be really dead) to reverse the tide of the battle. Gayzer should’ve thought up a more foolproof plot. Well, at least they found a last minute use for Nightmare… can’t stand his “DORIIMU” chants though.
I’d really wanted more fight scenes with Bell vs Kirihito but then, he was using god mode anyways, the cheater that he is. Really sad that we didn’t see too much of Bell herself, in this episode but she really spiced up this show well, especially with the awesome battle outfit of hers. Kudos too for Yuka Goto pulling off her so well, didn’t expect Gotouza-sama to have such an awesome evil voice as well.
Oh Bell Zephyr, you really spiced up this show.
As my closing thoughts, I’d like to say NIGHT WIZARD was a surprisingly good series, and I initially expected the show to bore me off in perhaps the 4th or 5th episode, but thankfully that didn’t happen. While it won’t win any points for plot and character development, the awesome fights and the nicely executed plot twist made up more than enough. I especially loved how over-the-top the fights were progressing throughout the series, from the simple mob fights on episode one (lol skellie army) to the grand battle on Saturn where Bell finally took matters in her own hands and Elis waking up Shaymaru.
Without doubt, NIGHT WIZARD has been an enjoyable show, even if the initial episodes weren’t that impressive. I’d say it’s probably one of the best shows from the Fall season, which is a surprise to myself, considering how low my expectations were for this show at the start of it. I should also give a special mention to the ED theme, Erinyes, as well. It’s probably one of the best ED’s for the Fall season too.
