Another series comes to an end. This show felt like it was 70% flashbacks because of the last few episodes. Shintarou started acting like a protagonist near the end with his “nick of time” entrance that defeated the snake, but he’s mostly absent throughout the rest of the series. Also, it’s unclear what happens to Haruka in the end…presumably he dies and allows Konoha to live on in his place, but it’s never really confirmed.

If I had to take a guess, I’d say this show probably makes a bit more sense if you watch it all at once, rather than weekly. I think many of the episodes rely on one another, so it’s just making it harder to try to space them out. Whatever…another one done. I’m not even entirely confident I was actually watching this show…

Mekakucity Actors Episode 11: Zombies!

So we finally find out why Ayano died, a desperate attempt to stop the snake’s plan and save her father. Anyway, after a series of flashbacks, it looks like the gang is back together again. I’m not entirely sure why Takane was there in her real body, though…did Kano free her somehow? He brought her to see her real body in one of the previous episodes, right? That’s the only explanation I have…

There was also talk of a forgotten promise make by Shintaro. It looks like remembering it allowed him to find Ayano somehow? I suppose she’s returning to the cast for the final battle. It makes sense…her death was a pretty meh moment, considering the snake didn’t seem to care that much. Anyway, last boss next week, I guess.
