Is the world worth protecting? The world Yuki, Haru, Natsuki and Akira– the humble island of Enoshima is the world itself, and yes, it is worth braving the storm for.
More often than not, a really good penultimate episode leaves me a tad speechless. Everything was executed so fabulously well that I just don’t think any words are needed. The cycle of self-sacrifice (Coco to Haru, Haru to Enoshima and perhaps even from Yuki to Haru is slightly reminiscent of Penguindrum, the two are vastly different in tone but surprisingly, both are attempts at portraying how deep human bonds can be. Friendship to Tsuritama is what family is to Penguindrum.
Funny how I would’ve never expected something like this from Kenji Nakamura, easily says a lot about how much he’s grown as a director.
As it stands this has been one of the best shows I’ve had the opportunity of seeing this year. I’m going to be sad to see this show end.
