Chrno Crusade Ep 24/ending *SPOILERS*

Postby SnhKnives » Mon Feb 21, 2005 9:14 pm

Ok, this series just ends WAY TOO SAD!

i seriously was not expecting Rosette and Chrno to die. and it wouldn't have been so bad, but the way it happened just really hit me. I mean it was so dramatic. Rosette clinging on the Chrno with everything she has left just absolutely breaking down and just crying and begging to live longer. The sun sets and the clock runs out.

It really hit me.

Azmaria's reaction got me again, it was like something inside her just died.

Atl east her smile at the end made me feel a little better.

Also the ending gets very deep with Remington and talking about God's law.

It was a bit strange when Aion appeared again, but i suppose its true that he is born from sinful human desire.


anyway, Id like to here anyone's thoughts on the ending

The amount of emotion and tragedy is just overwhelming in the final episode of this series.. The last moments between Chrno and Rosette tears at the very fabric of the human heart, flowing beautifully with the melancholy music and calm settings. When the clock started ticking, I felt like time had actually stood still, if only for fourty seconds... Easily one of the most 'magical', heart-wrenching endings for an anime I've seen. Now, excuse me while I go grab some tissue..

:cry: :wink:

The smile only hides the pain.

Sure they died peacfully... but they died in vain... and Rosette was only 16.

Nope. He survived (some magical way :roll: ) and appearently he was the attemped assassin in the almost Pope assassination in the 1980's. And the priest was a hobo at the end. So... "God" didn't decide to spare their lives as a reward for "getting rid" of Aion?

Appearantly, not enough :roll: . Beautiful or not, that had to be the most depressing ending to a TV show since... uh... nothing I guess. Absolutly nothing was accomplished by the main characters in the end, nor did they reach their goals. *sniff* :cry:

Has anyone been reading the manga? I'm curious to know if it's different/better than the series.

I may have to go through the TV series again to understand the ending a little better - I watched the last 13 episodes in one night ^^;

I'd say that their deaths had some purpose--if you remember, later in the episode, sister Kate (while talking to God) says "Is this the kind of happiness you are giving to them?" (It's paraphrased; I don't remember the line exactly.) They got to die peacefully, without seeing the Great Depression or World War II, and even if they didn't accomplish that much, they -believed- that they did. That made it, for me, kind of a happy/sad mixture.

You want to know why it's like that? The show is heavily based on actual documents released by the Vatican that told the 'true' story behind the Pope's assasination. Names and that have changed but supposedly Rosette and Chrno's story is somewhat true.

The Pope was never assassinated. It was ATTEMPTED. :roll:
