Episode 10

Spoiler :
Wow, as soon as he said that he has an enemy in that world the first person that came to mind was Dee and it turns out that I was correct. I think one reason why she was a ghost in the original world was because she actually wanted to stay in the other world and she kind of didn't. By the time she said to Ai "It's soo great that you want to stay forever" (I think it's what she said) made me think. Was it she who created that world?

So far my conclusions has been coming out correct, but I wonder. Why did she create that world in the first place (If it was her)? Was it because she doesn't like to see people die? leave her friends? or etc...

Next episode seems really interesting. I guess I have to see the next episode if I want to find out more :D .

Same, I guessed it :D

Yeah, I'm curious as well where this will go. I think I have an idea, but I'll shut up about it for now :P

After this episode, I've also finally realized that this show isn't really a linear story with a clear start-to-finish plot, but more of a series of 2-3 episode world-building and character sketches. Makes the pacing a bit wacky, but I've also found that really cool actually. It's kept it really unpredictable, and I love the world/character stuff. I hope there is more of it after this season - feels like I'm only getting to know this world just a little bit from this 10 eps, and there's far, far more to it than this.

Also, the "family" thing, especially that one couple, gets increasingly more adorable with each episode :)

Episode 12 Spoiler ahead:
Spoiler :
Wow who would have known that it was Alis the one who truly died. That is just surprising and how he just remembered it was just him. lol, I laughed when he said that she just had to save him.


Nuu!!! Why end without a resolve!

I feel so trolled by that ending. THE TEARS THEY CHEATED FROM ME. GIVE THEM BACK! D<

Though well that being said, I still enjoyed the series as a whole. The story was long lost on me but the backgrounds and the atmospheric feel of the entire world/setting was fantastic. It's such a beautiful fantasy series and I'm so sad it's finished. ;__; Damn it.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Given that I'd figured out how the series works as far as world view/philosophy, I'm not surprised, but yup xD That was a gigantic feel troll for sure!!!

I am sad it's over. This was definitely in my top 3 this season, and was definitely the most unexpected one. I didn't have this series figured out for the longest time, and it kept up the surprises all along the way. It's definitely very Japanese writing-wise, and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who expects things to be neatly explained and wrapped up - it's a world-building show where you don't really get to know very much, you just get to "dip your toes" and get introduced to a few characters, but it's never a complete story. Which personally, I loved.

wat.

That entire last ep made NO SENSE. I still got the feels but ehhhhhh, the double plot twist was really weird. Plot-wise this show was pretty poop, but I did love the universe they created and the animation was top notch as always with a Madhouse anime. I enjoyed it as a whole but it wasn't one of those anime that I anticipated every week.

I think the point is that there wasn't really a plot... It took me a whole to realize it, but the show never even tried to have a continuous story, I think. It was very episodic and never even attempted to explain the "big mysteries" - so yeah, it was pretty all over the place and would be a bit disappointing if you were looking for an overarching plot. I really enjoyed it once I realized that it's not what it was about, though.
