Posted on 2 August 2006 with categories: Noein



Thanks A LOT to Cos, for mentioning the fact that Noein 24 had actually been released for a couple of weeks now. The fact is like this: at July 9th, the French fansub group BFT released the final episode on Tokyo Toshokan. They told in their description that they translated the final episode from Chikyuji’s fansub (who released a French fansub two days earlier) because Shinsen Subs was so slow. Unfortunately, they wrote this in French, so the only ones able to understand these words were french people, who didn’t even need to know this as they already had their final episode subbed. When I saw this at first, I only noticed the word vostfr, which stands for the french fansubs. And I have a suspicion that I’m not the only one who reached the same conclusion. I can understand a bit of french, but most of the time I’m not motivated enough to spend effort in trying to figure out what it says. A huge mistake. Thanks again to Cos, for making me realize this.

Long story short: if you want to see Noein 24 with english subs: download BFT’s version. It is indeed in english.

Anyway, about the episode. It was utterly, utterly INCREDIBLE!! This episode SO belongs into my list of best endings EVER! The entire episode was so incredibly touching, the pacing was extremely exciting and not to mention the fact that the graphical and musical department worked overtime this episode. And both of these departments already were amazing!

Like I said before, I don’t cry a lot during anime, and even if I do, It’s just a bit, not much. But Noein has managed to do the impossible. During the entire final part of the episode, I had to cry. I’m sortof embarrased by this. But that’s how good this episode was, folks.

I would love to do some kind of summary on this episode, but I do feel that I wouldn’t do it justice. So many things happen at once. Everything was just perfectly directed. In the end, Noein proved to be worthy of being one of the best anime ever. It’s too bad the series ended. I would have loved to see more of this. Let us hope that in the future, more anime as Noein will appear, not afraid to experiment with the boundaries animation.

Memorable Moment: The Entire Episode. If I do have to select one of them, it would be Tobi’s last scene.

    Ok, so I have become within the last few weeks a MAJOR Noein fan! After watching a few episodes on the SciFi Channel that were shown out of order, I had to buy the entire series. Still after watching the final episode, episode 24; don’t ask me how, I have a few questions. 1. What happened to Karasu, did he just disappear? 2. Did Kosagi just die, as some have implied in other blogs? 3. What happened to Lacrima, I truly expected it to transform into some beautiful place after everything was said and done. Either way Noein is awesome. And if there is a fan site out there on the internet, I want to join it. SO, I implore everyone if you haven’t watched Noein, do so – immediately! You won’t regret it.

    Hmm, it’s been a while since I saw this series, and my memory is a bit fuzzy about this. I believe that Kosagi and Karasu lived, though don’t take my word on that one. Also, I don’t think Lacryma returned to its original state.

    this is one of the best anime shows i have ever seen in my opinion it is numero uno

    I DO have one question… What the heck happened to Atori? Did he return back to his timespace? Waah, I’m kind of sad it ended. T_T Although… it does leave a good feeling about the future, whatever it may be. :]

    Okay, I totally LOVE this anime, I own the box set, and have watched it several times… I have to admit I cried (real tears and everything) through many parts in this series, but this last episode was emotional… Firstly, it is sad, but happy too, also it was the end of the series, which in its self is depressing… And the fact that there was not and opening like normal but the song Idea was playing during a crucial point in the episode was very good. As much as it would rock if there were a second season, I am not sure if it would be done… Yes it did leave much to be answered, but it is one of those things that will leave you wanting more and perhaps forever wondering… If they did continue with the series, it would be interesting to see where they would go with it… Like Atori said, the future is interesting because we don’t know what’s going to happen next!

    @Emma: Thanks for sharing, haha. Yeah, best if you see the Fargo series first. Who knows, you might find some of the liberties they took to be engaging. Anyway, I’m really dozing off here. Worked too hard all day and barely got any sleep XD

    I agree with you deadlight on Fincher’s use of athmosphere and lighting in general.

    Good to hear though the remakers of Fargo are taking their own initiative though, that its darker intrigues me also.

    After seeing fight club, I wasn’t exactly feeling the twist in the game, I kind of drifted in and out of the athmosphere in that film too.

    I actually can’t remember much about panic room as I watched it back in 2002 but I do remember liking it, at least thinking it was a tense film.

    Zodiac had the benifit of been based on a very interesting true crime mystery and that made it an engaging film.

    Oh lordy, Alien 3 was one messy jargon of a movie. I heard that the studio even skipped scenes around without the director’s consent.

Ping Pong – 02

Yes, I know that more people here were involved in making this series beyond Masaaki Yuasa. It’s written by the creator of Tekkon Kinkreet, Taiyo Mashimoto. That guy is awesome. And the combination between those two makes this series even better. Because here’s the thing: anime is significantly different from manga or light novels. Beyond […]

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure – Stardust Crusaders – 02

We can never quite get rid of magic fights at a school, now can we, Jojo. Ah well, I forgive it this time, just due to how hilarious it looks seeing these ridiculously bulky men walk around pretending to be high school students. It’s just so over the top, and yet Jojo sets itself apart […]

Mushishi Season 2 – 02

Oh yes. This is it. This is what storytelling should be about: telling real stories about real people, all with their own problems that need to be overcome. And this show does that time and time again in just one episode. I still can’t believe how authentic this series is. The thing is, when I […]

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Review – 89/100

There are a lot of ways to adapt something. Shounen battle series tend to very quickly fall into a very dull variation of that: really slow pacing that goes on forever with long boring drawn out battles that all look like each other. David Production looked at them, and just said “we can do better!” […]

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure – 26

Oh Jojo. What an ending. I did not expect what would happen here at all. Perhaps the ending was not as impressive as with Psycho Pass or From the New World, but still this is every way in which a shounen series should end. You hear that, other shounen series? Watch this for how endings […]

Okay, so I thought that this was the final episode so I was ready to go all out. And then at the end of this episode there was this “To be continued”-message. Yeah, I was confused. But boy, am I glad, because it means that there will be one more episode of Jojo. They managed […]

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure – 23 & 24

And here are the penultimate episodes of Jojo. And seriously, I loved the fights here. The creators really went to the extreme, while keeping true to their philosophy of putting huge over the top powers on one hand, and really delicate things on the other. One one hand you have Stroheim yelling like crazy, while […]

Kick Heart

Okay, so I didn’t want to exit 2013 without having seen Masaaki Yuasa’s Kick Heart. It’s only twelve minutes anyway, and I consider him to be one of the best anime directors out there. The story here is pretty silly and mostly serves as a backdrop, so I mostly want to talk about the nature […]

Everyone’s taste is different, and that’s a wonderful thing because that allows us to have so many different forms of media that all aim toward their own niche.

Noucome! You do not want to know how long I have been waiting for a series like this. More than half a decade, at the very least. Finally a series comes along and puts the incredibly overused harem genre in its place. And it actually does it well. Thank you! So to elaborate: the harem […]

Normally I try to avoid spoilers with these reviews, but screw it, it’s Pokemon. Pokemon The Origin is a bomb of nostalgia.

I’m not going to dedicate a post for my impression for the final three episodes of this series. It was just too boring to write much about.

Silver Spoon Review – 86/100

When Noitamina started airing two series per season, it was amazing. It’s a timeslot that on average tends to be aimed at a much older audience than usual, and having two series with the same mentality definitely helped to bring more diversity to anime overall. Unfortunately it’s a schedule that could not be kept up […]

Yondemasuyo, Azazel-San Z Review – 82,5/100

Reviewing a comedy sequel usually is quite simple: in most cases it just drops the bomb and runs out of inspiration, and in rare cases it actually manages to stay hilarious. The tricky thing with these kinds of series is that you need to remain funny, and you need to have the inspiration for that. […]

I like surprises, like when a series comes that just turns out to be good against my expectations.

And they […]
