TAAN: They did it. They used the ending that I always anticipate yet hope will not happen. I don’t believe it! You’ll see. Just read on. Yes I’m late but whatever.
Summary: With the realization that they can create infinite Ens, the Shikabane Hime and their Contracted (that term is coming up far too often this season) Priests fight against the Shichisei once and for all. In the city, Takamasa, Takamine, and Risa fight the old guy and Touya and win easily, due to them not calculating the reconstruction of the Ens. At the Joubou, Ouri and Makina fight against Akasha and Hokuto. The battle comes to a draw when a bullet destroys the rubble of the Joubou and reveals the circle of tombs. Upon seeing this again, Akasha remembers Hibiki is in one of them, and the En between him and Hokuto breaks. Hokuto feels betrayed and returns to being a normal corpse and kills Akasha in one hit. Hazama, the invincible bugman returns at this point and takes Hokuto and runs. With the Shichisei destroyed, most of the corpses in the city die on their own, losing their raison detre, bringing that crisis to a close. Ouri tries to help Makina live a normal life again, but she realizes that it’s not what she wants and goes to find and finish off Hokuto. She also realizes that Hokuto is merely a corpse that has forgotten about life and death, and so she plans to beat those concepts back into her and finally defeat her. Ouri is swayed by her reasoning and agrees to help her, so they set off to Hazama’s hideout. Once there, Hokuto gets excited and they start fighting. Hazama, weary from battle and his organization crushed, yells at them to stop. He and Ouri watch the fight from the side, unsure of what to do when–
Old Guy’s End:
Ending Thoughts: I really want to read the manga now. They’re so evil like that. The series wasn’t that spectacular, but they didn’t turn it into one of those annoying superpower shows where they’re always trying to find logical flaws in each others abilities. that gets annoying no matter how much I like it. Overall, it was interesting since the nature of the battles made the focus both on the battles themselves and the circumstances surrounding them, rather than just purely on the fighting. I liked that.
