I watched it having faint memories of a screencap (you know the one) and massive amounts of rage over it.

As it grew closer and closer to the end, deep down I knew who the girl must have been in the screencap. It was impossible not to. But I held on believing that my memory was fuzzy and best girl would end up winning in the end.

I was wrong. Terrible ending to a pretty decent romance show.

The ninja were actually the good guys (not counting the literal murderer one). Togame planned to betray them, but they caught wind of it and decided to cut ties.
It was lose/lose and they could only continue to exist by getting some swords and selling to keep their power, but that didn't pan out well.

Is there a better boss rush in anime?
>>
>>120086651

Yes you did, but not for the reason you think.

I don't know about the LN (and quite frankly I don't care because I think adaptations have to be considered independently of their source material), but in the anime at least, this scene presents us with something similar to the last few seconds of Inception where the top keeps spinning just long enough for the audience to say "Wait, is he still dreaming?" but cuts to black before you can be sure one way or another. In this way, either interpretation is equally valid because there is a compelling evidence for both. This could also be called The Turn of the Screw phenomenon, from Henry James book that you'll just have to google.

Now, on the surface, this sort of thing seems quite clever - a nod toward the ambiguity of life and our inability to know the truth for sure. But its also kind of a cop-out - its a way for the author to end the story without having to create a satisfying resolution for all the different character arcs.

There are two possible interpretations. Togame is telling the truth in this seen as her final act of repentance for having used Shichika, and her "scheming eyes" activate, because it was all her scheme. According to this, she would have gone through with killing Shichika in the end. Or, Togame is lying in the hopes of sparing Shichika the grief of her death by retroactively negating the value of their relationship, and that is why her "scheming eyes" activate. She may have intended to kill Shichika at some point, but at this point she did not, or maybe she never did in the first place.

Again, both interpretations have much in their favor, but which is the more likely? The fact is, no one, probably not even Nisio, really knows for sure.

>>
>>120097149
I hope you're okay anon, you just got blown the fuck out pretty hard.
>>
>>120097106

That's not what I said. The fact is that the scales are pretty evenly balanced - again, this is an old narrative technique - so there is no valid interpretation, which is a failure on the part of the author.

You can go read The Turn of the Screw as a ghost story or as the ravings of the Governess who is losing her mind and both work quite well. Its the same here.
>>
>>120097075
I think she really did love Shichika and wanted to kill Shichika and not kill Shichika at the same time. By being an unfaithful schemer, she is caught up in all the ends to her schemes and caught in her own web of dishonesty that she can't even be true to herself. Her words at the end were releasing her of all her duplicity and choosing one possibility to become. So to the bitter end she was scheming but at the very end it was all the truth.

Something like that, a liar being wrapped up in their own lies and fixing it at the very end by making a lie become true.

>Her words at the end were releasing her of all her duplicity
It's amazing how many people miss this. Emonzaemon pretty much sets up the scene after shooting her telling Shichika and the audience that this is Togame's final scene, where she finally comes clean. At the very end of her little spiel Togame ask Shichika if she could fall for him. Why would she need to ask this if she already truly loved and wanted to protect him?

This whole Togame was lying business only exists because people didn't pay enough attention.

Someone did try translating the Katanagatari novels back in 2011 but like what happens to all Nisio Isin translators, they all become eventually kill, never again to return.

http://daniel0987.livejournal.com/

This Daniel guy actually seemed eager to translate the Katanagatri novels but somehow went MIA after September 30, 2011 with no warning whatsoever.

He's some faggot from Singapore, too, like some well known LN translators.

Wish he didn't create such blue balling with his enthusiasm.

So yeah, here's the link to the only available Katanagatari LN translation. It only got up to Chapter 1.

It's how I know who best girl is.

>>120103546
The ones who failed at revenge, The ones who failed at their goals, The ones who fell before achieving their aspirations, The ones who didn't succeed, The ones who lost, The ones who stumbled, The ones who rotted, The ones who fought with all their might, sacrificed everything, just to have their work be for naught, yielding fruitless results,
Who died unfairly, or perhaps illogically, tragically, without face, full of regrets...
The story which offers a happy future for them, filled with hopes and dreams, "Katanagatari", quietly closes it's curtains here.

It being a narrative technique is a Red Herring, actually. Nisio already dressed similar ideas in Zaregoto (and his other works) and Higaki Rinne's advice to Togame actually makes it clear that she wasn't lying.

Togame was fully willing to kill Shichika for the sake of her revenge, despite being in love with him. She was ready to go against her own feelings to fulfill her ambitions, despite knowing that she would regret it later. Love is far from all-powerful and perfect in Nisio's stories.

I don't think so. What makes you think the author has any obligation to resolve any plot point he introduces? You might consider it lazy but it's not like it would have been that complicated to make it clear what's the truth. Sometimes ambiguity is more desirable than certainity.

To convince him of the lie.

As a general rule, humans always see what they want to see in such cases and call others idiots who see it a different way. That's just our way of coping with ambiguity.

As I said in the post, I don't give a fuck about Nisio or his other works. An adaptation exists independently of the source material. Even if what you're saying is correct, you're just embracing the intentional fallacy.

>She was ready to go against her own feelings to fulfill her ambitions, despite knowing that she would regret it later.

That's exactly what she wants Shichika to think so he will resent her and move on. It even seemingly works - after all, he ends up with the princess on some kind of a quest. But imagine, regardless of the truth of the matter, Togame told Shichika at this moment to avenge her, or said something like, "I loved you and I'm so sad I'm going to have to die and lose you now" - would Shichika have been as easily able to recover? Maybe he would have lost his mind.

An author may not have that obligation, but its just as easy to use ambiguity as a cop out because the author doesn't have the conviction in his ability to create characters and worlds to see it through.
