I honestly cannot tell if I liked that anime. It was fucking beautiful and I enjoyed the artistic style (big fan of 5 leaves/mushishi which were similiar-ish), but it was kind of strange.
I don't understand what was accomplished.
I've heard this complaint before and I still don't get it.
We saw some good episodic plots that each wrapped up, we saw the main character grow and change, we saw a (small) impact on a bigger scheme, and over the whole show we saw the judging of Chiyuki.
Was the Chiyuki we saw at the end a doll or an arbiter? Sorry if I missed something totally obvious, but she didn't move at all or say anything, kind of made me think she was a doll.
How tiny is your screen? Look at her eyes.
It's a doll just like the girl playing the Piano, Decim makes mannequins of people who he respected.
Cute experiment you have there, Nona. Don't mind me, I'll just add another rule so you can't keep doing it.
He said that rule after Decim had already broke down and his eyes went human for a bit, so he didn't suddenly make that rule up. Either he observed it and just took note that that rule exists, or he always knew that rule existed and just didn't say anything.
Oh god please make the pain go away ;_;
Almost as cute as Chiyuki.
She was so perfect ;_;
So, the dolls were like Decim's mannequins, people he cared for?
If so, why the hell did he send her to the void?
