So finished. I was surprised myself, I don't often watch and enjoy mecha (Escaflowne is in my top 5 though).

After finishing in a week, gotta say, it should have ended after episode 16. After the death of the Spiral King the show should have been over. The last arc was weak compared to the first, added nothing new to the story, and lost most of what made the first half interesting.

Oh well, good music.

And if any of you become writers don't make the object of the story to rescue one girl who dies anyway. That shit's just stupid as hell. It makes all their efforts pointless. I knew about it before I started and it didn't make it an less a disappointment. Same thing went wrong in the Matrix.

Sucks that you knew about it. That doesn't mean a better writer can't use it to make a great story.

>>134115086
Did we watch the same anime? 2nd part was as good, if not better, as the first part.
And that ending was how it is supposed to be.

THIS. This so fucking much. Holy shit, I can't stress this enough to the fags who claim that TTGL is "teh best animu evah". TTGL is great only until the King is dead. The second half was nothing more than rehashing the first but with a grim tone and fodder characters that never got developed and whom no-one cares about who throw their shitty one-liners before dying in the space conflict.

Still pissed that they left Shotgun Kittan out of the movie.

Was referring to the final one in the TV series with Genome, which was the best one.

What anime are you talking about?
which eden?
>>
>>134118600
Eden: it's an endless world. No anime just manga

You could argue it isn't the main object of the story but it is certainly the main object of Elijah's story.
>>
>>134117195
I generally agree with you, but Kittan is one of the bests things about the second part.

The object of the story was to overcome the anti-spirals, Nia being rescued was Simon's side-story(which was made a lot better in lagann-hen).

The second half was just as good if not better than the first.
>>
The second half was what the show was actually about, the first half might as well have been a long prologue.
>>
The second arc/half is Episode 1 of Star Wars. Politics will make everything better.

Plus let's throw Simon in jail and have him rot there. Rossiu is evil now. Morally ambiguous decisions are the norm.

The rest is just rehashing the first replacing 'fighting spirit' with 'spiral power' to have the same final fight between Simon and The Anti Spiral that occurred between him and the Spiral King down to jumping out of his cockpit and jamming both in the chest with his core drill for the same exact reason as before 'so people don't need to live underground'.

The only thing which made Part II good was Simon putting Nia above the rest of the universe declaring he would rescue her even if it meant the destruction of everything through spiral power; which was then totally wasted when she died anyway.

It had its moments but nothing we didn't see already in part I and instead of the cavalry coming to the rescue like before the cavalry sucks fails and dies.

Take out the Spiral King's prophecy as he's dying and end the show at 16. Nothing more needed to be done.
>>
>>134115086
Simon never wanted to be a hero, and probably never expected a hero's reward.

In the end, he did what was best for humanity then went back to his mundane life.

Welp, guess that was THEIR limit.

There would still need to be some reason for why he wanted to keep humans underground though

Kamina and post time skip Simon is just a poor man's Ryoma.

Same reason the dude in Blue Submarine 6 did. Make room for what he thought was a superior race.

We learned nothing about beastmen being inferior till after the time skip.
