Hopefully that bomb isn’t dropped on its foot.
Yeah, Nine and Twelve are going to die eventually so no “true” happy ending is going to occur. But I won’t accept just any bittersweet/downer ending. I mean we’ve got an atomic bomb about to blow Japan up and Five is out of the game now after fulfilling her role. At the very least, it should be a darker version of the ending for Bokurano – although just like this show, I seem to be alone in my feelings regarding how good that anime turned out.
It’s a tough hole that Resonance has dug for itself, but Watanabe has never failed me in regards to ending his shows yet. Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo, and Kids on the Slope had great finales (I don’t remember Macross Plus’s ending other than it not being bad, but I didn’t care). So come on dude. Show me what you’ve got, next week!
PS: Is it really that hard to interpret why Five did what she did? She wanted to beat Nine. In the end, she realized she never “truly” could, but she came close and was satisfied with that, so she offed herself. What’s there to get? And even if I’m wrong, I saw enough evidence to support said theory with nothing substantial to debunk it.
– Granted I had help in terms of understanding this, but we’re not exactly watching Penguindrum here.
