I knew it! The future version of Ai does return. This time, she meets up with Yuu and Haruka from the past. Kosagi’s daugher brings them to her at the beginning of the episode, after the dragon’s torque saved them from the desperate Kuina. I just like this character more and more. At the beginning of this anime, I so would NOT have thought that he’d end up this way. Anyway, Atori regained his memory, but somehow, he doesn’t return to the bad side. That is surely an awesome development. To see a sick and demented guy like him join the good guys. I’d love it if he were to play another big role at the rest of the anime.
Holy god… this show ends at episode 23, if I’m not wrong. That means that there are only three more episodes to go before this incredible anime. I’m really curious about the ending. We still need another plot twist, as I don’t see the end of this episode make up for a number of three episodes. It’ll probably involve Haruka, in some way. And of course we get to see how Noein became who he was.
Because yes! We see Noein confirm his true identity. He has to have a very good reason in order to make it not based on coincidences. But then again, I feel that Noein has been neglecting this part a bit. Anyway, it’ll still be interesting to see.
The rest of this episode was even more awesome than the first part. Seeing how the first part already was amazing, it really says something about the quality of the second part. This really is one of the first times that I actually truly enjoyed the romance between the two main characters of a show. Those who’ve been reading some of my reviews and know about my dislike towards most main characters must know that this happens very rarely.
Another thing that really added up to this episode was the fact that the backgrounds are just too beautiful to be true. Starting from the dystopian La’Cryma to the utopian Shangri’La, everything looks gorgeos. And if that wasn’t even enough, the CG really gives that extra edge needed to blow you off your chair. And have I already mentioned that the music was as good as ever in this episode?
