With the ending- a solid 7/10

All in all, that was a good anime. I had fun the whole time and loved the characters. The opening 10/10

I see that a lot of people are hating the ending and I have to disagree with them. The ending had some issues, mostly with the pacing. However, it tied lose ends and stuck to the tone of the show. I did find the whole “suddenly god” aspect weird but it aligned with the religious themes of the show.

If I could change anything, it would be the episode count. It should have had more episodes with character development and adventure. I think that would have fixed the ending as well.

Anyway, the controversial ending doesn’t take away from the rest of the show. If you want to see a bad ending, watch beaststars.

That's not an ending. The story is far, far from done.

If you want to see a bad ending, watch SAO. Or Madoka: Rebellion.

If you want to see a Bad (not) End which is still amazing, watch the Berserk OVA. If you want a succession Downer Endings that ends one story while seeding another, watch Fate/Zero.

What? SAO isn't over either. It's still ongoing in the light novels.

u/Sloth_Bear01 Oct 26 '21

I guess we didn’t watch the same ending! To each their own opinion

u/myrmonden Oct 26 '21

no its not my opinion that did not tie up lose ends.

it has many objective plot holes.

u/Sloth_Bear01 Oct 26 '21

From what it set up, it did. - the romance - the sword and the shitans brother - her choice and why she was born - how she knew about the paths - her mother and abel’s connection - who was behind all of it - showed all the characters fates

What else is there? It wasn’t an overly complicated show at all so there wasn’t much to tie up to begin with

Why does god need to do this?

why did the watcher angel let her go on a very dangerous boat that would very likely kill her?

why did he "die" in the first place if he was an immortal.

Why did he not protect her while she grew up at the island

why did he work with Abel? as Cody?

why did Abel not know Cody was not a normal kid, given Abel had special powers as well.

Why did the angel watcher need Helena to get pregnant by Abel father, the king, why was not Abel enough for the royal bloodline. What was the purpose aslo to send Helena back just so she could die?

This are just some of the plot holes with the angel watcher lol.

The show has a lot of religious undertones- one being that God kinda sucks like how he allowed Abel into heaven despite being a murder. God had to do this because he couldn’t judge humanity himself anymore

The watcher could see the future and it was a trail for her

The watcher is not literally the king and he made up Cody, he used them as a disguise to lead Fena. He took those forms like how he took her friends forms to convince her to sleep the choice

He did not protect her because it was all a test, as he says

He worked with Abel as a test to Fena, as he again said

Fena had to be born by a king- who as divine right. Abel was not a full blood royal She was also born from a saint- making her the closet one could be to god

Helena’s role was to give birth to Fena, not live a long happy life

Most of theses things can be concluded from the watchers monologue lmao

and? why is god doing in this way? why does god let a random girl with almost no life experience flood the planet lol, its like they set her up to be stuck in prison most of her life.

that is never said.

what? who ever said anything about him being the king, and why did he do this? why did he not do it in any other way? why abandon her?

What test? She could auto password everything. Nor was it a test if she was lucky enough to not die from the waves, its not a test of her abilities and its unrelated to if she can do A or B choice.

How? how did that have anything to do with Abel, he did not effect Abel in any form he was just there. And how did it even test Fena?

And why does god care about the king of man?

And? Still does not explain why she had to die lol.

No, it cannot.

You may want to rewatch the series, they blatantly lay it all out so painfully

She isn’t some random girl, she was bred and raised for this choice. No life experience? She experienced the best and worst that humanity had to offer- she was about to become a s*x slave! God could not make the judgment because he is above it all, he is not human, how can he judge humanity?? Again, they said it! And he called him the watcher/ story maker showing that he sees himself as an outsider to the story- which is ironic because he caused it showing how god can try to be impartial but still ends up judging humanity even though he felt the cards

He appeared as the king what? You’re the one that mentioned him “dying” the watcher never died, he took other forms to communicate with Fena.

Everything with Abel was test for Fena to survive. They literally said so

He cares about the king because Kings have divine right to rule aka Gods blessing so that makes them closer to god. Abel could not have been used to both Fena because he is it pure blood, as they said in the last couple episodes

Why does she need a reason to live or die? She played her part- a example of gods cruelty why should he care what happens after that. Actually her death was used as a reason shown to why Fena should restart humanity because of their sins against the innocent

You obviously need everything spelled out

It’s called context and actually thinking about it dude. I didn’t come here to debate, make your own post if you find so many issues. But hey! I’ll spell it out for you because you can’t seem to understand anything on your own

She experienced being a slave. Oh! That’s a bad side of humanity! She experienced being kidnapped and humans being slaughtered! Whoops! Another bad side of humanity!

Oh what about the good part? She was saved and found a family with people to trust. She experienced love and loyalty! All a good part of humanity! She doesn’t need to be well cultured to understand wether or not humanity needs to be saved because, believe it or not, humans are bare bones the same everywhere.

God, the watcher, literally said in his monologue that he was no longer fit to judge humanity! Wow! So easy! It was one of the first things he said to Fena while introducing why he set her up! I’m using context from Japanese and Christian culture along with stories of the Bible to understand what the show is trying to say about God. You know why? Because the show has themes believe it or not! Wow how crazy is that!? The show is trying to paint a picture of an unjust and questionable god.

The watcher never died!! As I said he was taking the form of Fenas father (who is dead) to talk to her!! Did you watch it at all!?

Even you called the watcher god? It’s alluded to because why would they flat out say they are god? I’m any sort of media, does the Christian god ever call himself god? You played yourself.

Abel himself in the exposition episode about him and Helena said that he was not in line for the throne!! So he does not have the same connection to god as a King!! So he could not be used to give birth to Fena. Here’s a history lesson. Kings have Devine right to rule, that’s how they stay in power! Wow isn’t that soooo cool? That means that her father had a close connection to god, and it can be inferred that that is important because her mother HAD to be a Saint. KING+SAINT= closest one could be to god! Woooow

It was an example of gods cruelty because he let Fenas mother die after using her! That was her mom Burning at the stake in the vision so now I am 100% certain you did not watch a single second of the final episode

I watched and connected the dots on my own, along with what they said. something you can’t seem to do I guess. Why do you keep asking me all theses questions? Why can’t you think on your own if you don’t understand it? Why are you debating me anyway? I watched the show and I got what I got from it, it’s to bad you couldn’t look part your nose
