Kyoshiro to Towa no Sora – 10

Sojiro and Himeko make their way to stop Kazuya from combing all the angels into one, creating a fallout of mana that threatens to destroy all life.

Impressions:

Overall, I really like the way that this series ahs played out. I’ve said before how this has become interesting, more then just a weird and just odd unique show. The plot took some turns I wasn’t expecting, which made it all the more interesting to me. At first I thought that this was going to end up being some mecha girl battle royale, some highlander thing where they fight off against each other until only one remains. It would have fit, but I’m really glad that it didn’t’ really turn out to be anything like that, as the current situation makes the series in general more unique and part form the very used before all mechas fight it out. Overall I wasn’t too sure I would like Kazuya coming back but the respected older brother of the main male being the enemy made it all the more interesting. The thing that I’m looking forward to the most, or should I say, what I’m most anxious about, is the fate of the angles at the end. They will stop Kazuya probably, but I hope the angels, or most of them, go back to leading either normal lives, mecha powers or not. It would fit for Kaon and Batraz, but that Meganjord one seems kind of screwed, and I still hope Setsuna gets a good ending if Kuu end sup with Kyoshiro. Given that she is left out, I fear for some sacrifice which would probably make the story more serious, but would be a bit sad as she’s my favorite character.

I thought it was kind of cool how Sojiro and Himeko not only met, but ended up fighting together. For the most part, their two stories weren’t related much. Aside from the fact that Sojiro and Mika were siblings, the dealings with Batraz and Kaon never crossed paths until Kazuya came and started capturing them all. It makes it that much cooler that two people in the story like that meet up to fight for the same thing. I wasn’t expecting the morality squad thing to come into play much more, but I guess they just served the point of evening out the numbers more then anything else. I’m also a bit surprised that the instrument (cello?) is used again. It was interesting that Mika used it, but it didn’t seem to do that much to Kazuya. However Sojiro seemed to have quite the reaction to it so I wonder how much it will actually come into play, whether it’s just a normal weapon to use against the smaller foes or it will serve some bigger point in the final fight I’m not sure of yet.

  1. Surprising as it is, the series is becoming much more interesting. I still can’t see where they’re going to pull out the reason for how Kazuya became such a jackass from but I’m pretty sure it’ll be another WTF moment for me.

  2. Yeah, it did seem kind of odd but the way I interpreted it as they already explained was that he was always a jerk, but Kyoshiro was innocent and didn’t realize it. They said Kazuya didn’t push him in the escape pod thing on purpose to save him, he just randomly pushed him because he was in the way.
