The ending was mostly as I expected. Little brother and Yajiro save the day, everyone survives, and we go back to life as before. In a way, that’s the show’s main point: don’t get tied down by grand ambitions, but make sure to have fun and enjoy yourself. Be an idiot.
I’ll have to admit I would have enjoyed seeing the uncle get some payback, but this ending makes more sense thematically.
One thing that I didn’t understand at all though was Benten. Not to imply that I ever understood her at all, of course. But why does she suddenly decide to go back with the professor, and later show up with him at the temple? Her actions seem completely contradictory to her previous actions… which of course fits in perfectly with her character… but I still don’t get it.
Was also happy to see the human professor change his mind and toss his philosophy out the window. It’s better to live a life of contradiction than to be bound by any ideology.
These two… always making stupid plots, even to the end. Foiled by the littlest brother this time, no less. That must burn.
They’re screwed. I liked how they finally did end up getting him out of the well, too. No inner transformation or any of that crap. Just got him drunk. Shingeki no Kyojin could learn a lot from this show.
Benten in a vampire cape? Good idea, or best idea?
The best thing about this show is the scenes like this. So wacky and cluttered, filled with life and color. Nothing in this show ever looks boring.
