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!

    The zombies in the Night of the Living Deadpool comic could speak, thereby taking away the fun he was supposed to have killing them. Which is true. Killing zombies with a fraction of humanity left is no fun.

    Zombie rehabilitation facilities. Haunted by memories of savagery, the patients spend their time to be able to reenter society … untill one of them wakes up and realizes that they are still in a post-apocalyptic zombie world and the rehab center is just the mental place they subconsciously created to cope and try to regain their lost humanity.

    A concept I had been thinking of earlier was about former zombies who retain memories of their activities as zombies and are traumatized by their previous actions.

    @Emma Quite entertaining, the cops in GTA didn’t fight the zombies together and instead fought individually. So they quickly became zombies and turned on each other, lmao.

    With zombies in mind, wyatt be sure to look into a flick called La Horde.

Mushishi – 07

Now this was such a beautiful episode. We often see Mushi portrayed as parasites. In fact, they are pretty much based on the insects and viruses of their world. There probably are enough real viruses and insects living in the Mushishi world, but they just aren’t the focus of the series. Anyway, what they did […]

This is where this arc gets weird. We’re still in adventure modus, however in these two episodes Jotaro not only meets some of the most bizarre Stand users, it’s also done in the most camp way possible. You can see a clear difference with the first two seasons of Jojo: there it was all about […]

Episodes 05 and 06 are dedicated to character-development. It’s here where Ping Pong shows that it also knows its stuff in terms of storytelling; the develoment doesn’t start too early or too late, and these two episodes really added depth to all of the different characters, despite that there were no big matches. I’m currently […]

I have not forgotten about this show. Not at all. I just finished marathoning these four episodes, and holy cheeseballs on a stick! this is the best anime in years!

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure – 03 – 05

Jojo really is not kind to its females. Every time a hint is even dropped to a girl kicking ass here, it comes with this weird plot-twist that undermines any fighting potential of them. In this arc, it’s the rule that says that your stand will kill you if youaren’t strong enough. And so, Joseph’s […]

Ping Pong – 03 & 04

The opening of Ping Pong wasn’t done in time, so the first two episodes showed a sortof montage as a placeholder. Now we know why, with episode 03 and 04. The creators actually got the single best animator currently in the business to oversee it: Shinya Ohira. This guy understands animation like no other. The […]

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 […]

Nerawareta Gakuen Review – 84/100

Let me talk a bit about Ryousuke Nakamura. For a long time, this guy was my hero. He started off as an assistant director to Monster, in my opinion a big reason why that series got such a ridiculously solid adaptation, and then in 2008 he came with the groundbreaking Mouryou no Hako. No TV-series […]

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.

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 […]

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. […]
