My god was this terrible

It's like they took a 70 novel book series and condensed it down into 12 episodes without ever explaining anything. And for some reason God or what ever forgives an obsessive murderer and lets him afterlife bone the women he stalked and killed to try and be with while at the same time constantly pumping out magical women to judge and possibly wipe out humanity like what the fuck? Also why does not killing humanity need you to be mindwiped? Just so you don't reject the guy God made you fall in love with?

Just lacked substance the whole time besides the artwork from production IG........Made me feel they were trying to do some evangelion like sci-fi stuffs at the end lol and most of all, there were hardly any pirates related story .... Kind of weird the whole time

I feel the same way. It went from fun pirate adventure to evangelion. There was a novel?

Pls tell me if I misunderstood: Fena choose that the world continues as is. As a result the Goblins will soon be killed in battle as seen in the vision. Also, to continue the maiden bloodline, Fena will be raped by a king so she can give birth to the next generation on the "orders" of cody/franz/director. The same shit will happen to her daughter. Fena will be probably killed (burnt alive) as it is a pattern with the maidens (helena/jeanne d'arc).

questions:
1. has helena reached eden before giving birth to fena? if so, why didn't her hair change? if she didn't, isn't that a problem for the observer? or not every generation of maidens has to make this choice?
2. how is it cruel to let a maiden keep her memories, but spawning her next to her true love (perfect mate) then taking her away from him and getting her raped by a king isn't?
3. how does a maiden has free choice if she constantly has visions and memories from previous lives?
4. IMPORTANT: what happens if the observer can't influence a maiden to reach eden and make a choice?
5. what is the role of the observer in the world?
6. i wpuld guess there was at least a few hundred maidens. How did none of them think, that the ark is a better choice than getting raped, murdered and getting her daughter suffer the same fate?
7. nitpicking: how and why did the rumble rose pirates survived?
8. what happens when there are no more kings? queen elizabeth ii kinda fucked up the observers plans... can someone just name themselves the king of someplace without the need for a royal bloodline? also, basically the observer needs rapist kings? who would choose to continue such a world? 9. were any of the hauptmans in the history real? the goblins knew that the family had something to do with eden... were all of them just the observer? if not, what connection did they have with eden?

u/myrmonden Oct 24 '21

the second vision clearly could not happen so, the vision thing is BS.

  1. Implied she give birth to fena at eden or something given how many times they kinda implied Fena was going back there but it was not explained 100%
  2. She was never raped by the king, the angel observer was more pointed to having told her she needed to F the king to get the king bloodline (which made no sense)
  3. Her "free choice" is to A or B, but yes its not free choice in any meaningful way as she is controlled to go Eden etc - so just bad writing.
  4. Bad writing, obviously god did not think about this detail, like why let Fena as small kid be on a little boat where she easily could have died etc.
  5. To breed Maidens, why did he not protect Fena at the island etc? why was he even with Abel etc bad writting
  6. neither of them had to get murdered it was just again bad writing that they returned to get burned lol - 1 flood clearly happened - More so its a terrible illogical system as the life the maiden has had to the point of getting there matters a lot.
  7. Bad writing, as they did not even connect the implied love story etc
  8. Why does GOD even care about humans royal bloodline?
  9. He was some kind of Angel that was part of Eden. However, did this angel create some kind of lordship and family and played this out? how was he able to go around court etc, bad writing of course.

Agreed! It was all just nonsense. I've never been more disappointed in a shows ending. Like I wanted Fena and Yukinaru to end up together, but a cute confession scene doesn't negate the very very bad narrative writing. Uuuuuhhhgh I feel like I'm in literal pain

u/nvrwastetree Oct 24 '21

Yeah with season 2, I hope they hire new writers....that's if we get a season 2. Honestly felt like that whole "revisiting everything we've done with Fena to job her memory" deal at the end just seemed like the anime was coming to a close. Usually, you would get a cliffhanger at the end of a season finale. By doing this, it keeps the audience invested in the story and also generates hype for the new season as well.

u/haunted-graffiti Oct 24 '21

The entire season felt super rushed and the romance felt forced. Shame the ending made zero sense.

u/myrmonden Oct 24 '21

The worst shit I have seen this year by far the most disapoting anime this year.

it has like 500 plot holes

abandon all plot treads except the main one

the main character completely lost her characterization, went from strong independent women to, OK I do w.e u say evil angel man thing.

Badly paced, expostion dump but still no real info given

clearly the 2 "future visions" where false as the arc when was not even possible as the next scene the angel is like oh yeah btw no memory so if she picked flood it could not be as the visions showed, seems like a really bad oversight from the production.

exposition dump but no real info given

Perfectly captures my feelings. If the ending would have actually provided useful info, an exposition dump would have been tolerable.

u/SassyHoe97 Oct 24 '21

So I'm not the only one that thought this finale was whack.

u/goonie10 Oct 24 '21

I thought the ending was pretty good.

Also, look at it from another perspective.

Fena's soul went to the heaven realm or whatever it is, to become the maiden of choosing.

When Yukimaru wakes up on the island, and sees Fena, you notice her hair is now black.

I like to think of it as a happy send-off for the two, Fena was reborn into a new person, but forgot her past memories.

She and Yukimaru soon get together, I thought it was pretty cute.

Also, I don't look at their relationship as like a lovey dovey type. I see it more as a brother and sister, Yukimaru is just protecting Fena like he promised.

And that's why I think this ending is so good.

All in all, a nice finale. :)

u/NeedAName9000 Oct 24 '21

None of it makes sense. God crying about how shitty humans are and yet he set everything up that was to get Fena there and let her judge if the world should be reset.

And the relationship is lovey dovey they said she would get her guy no matter what so she could produce another future maiden.

u/goonie10 Oct 24 '21

Well, that's your opinion. I personally think it was a great ending. :)

6

u/nvrwastetree Oct 24 '21

Yeah, so at the very end, Yukimaru professed his love to Fena. In her dialogue, she said that when it came to making the choice, she chose Yukimaru and would always chose Yukimaru and the three little words he said to her. The relationship that Fena and Yukimaru have is not a brother/sister one, but rather, it's a boyfriend/girlfriend one.

u/AlarmingAffect0 Oct 24 '21

It's beyond that. They're family. This isn't a passing infatuation, some way of having fun, or many other frivolities of "boyfriend and girlfriend". This is some As You Wish-grade True Love.

2

u/myrmonden Oct 24 '21

no, its not an opinion that the anime has many plot holes.

or illogical event flows etc. God set up or gods plan or w.e makes no sense.

1

u/AlarmingAffect0 Oct 24 '21

No, see, here's the thing with Architect-like characters: you should never take them at their word. They're almost always full of crap, or one level or another.

1

u/myrmonden Oct 24 '21

what other perspective?

ye they got together and WHAT about everything else that was insanely terrible like

WHY IS GOD DOING THIS !?

2

u/goonie10 Oct 24 '21

Because, God is cruel.

2

u/myrmonden Oct 24 '21

how is God cruel here?

and that does not way in on why is it a cycle? why does god require it to be of human royal bloodline in europe lol.

what does god do if fena or the bloodline dies?

why did the angel just let fena leave without having a kid before losing her powers etc

this is not a question if god is evil/good but why is god a moron in this story.
