Ayako is absorbed by the Return to the Beginning project that Masaki initiated and The Silver Maria and Mamoru try and save her and stop the monster before it destroys others.
This episode was very interesting. Things definitely seem to have gotten to full bloom in the everyone is screwed aspect. The individual situation and event is interesting and has made the show rather intriguing, Iâ€™m not sure exactly what is going to happen next, however it almost seems like itâ€™s out of place. Things seemed to happen so fast and came out of no where. Two episodes ago the problem was that Ayako got her power sealed and now Ayako and Mamoru are in some dimension inside of an evil coalescing of Beatrice that is going crazy and is the target of hundreds of missiles. Itâ€™s not that itâ€™s confusing, I understand what’s going on for the most part, itâ€™s just that it kind of seems like it doesnâ€™t fit with the general flow and pace of the series. Sure it is the final event so it has to be a bit more serious and problematic for everyone, however it still just feels off. Really overall Iâ€™m not a huge fan of what’s going on. I thin the show might have better ended on an event that focused a bit more on Ayako and Mamoru’s feels and less with really weird evil birds made of pure energy. I still do have some hope that the show will go back to their relationship as a topic, although they are dealing with the bird I still think it would help the show out if they eventually ended with the bird being defeated because of Ayako and Mamoru realizing something about each other. Either way, whether the romance bit is important to the bird incident or just thrown in there at the end I hope it appears somewhere.
As for what is actually going to happen, it doesnâ€™t seem as if there will be too many surprises. Iâ€™m positive that Ayako and Mamoru will be fine in the end and of course end up together however for the most part Iâ€™m guessing there will just be this general return to normalcy thing going on, they will somehow get out, I donâ€™t know how and it really doesnâ€™t matter, and Mamoru and Ayako will be all lovey dovey but Ayako will be embarrassed and so on. Still, I want to figure out how that will all play out. Not that I necessarily want to know how they will defeat the bird or anything, although Iâ€™ve more ore less figured out what will happen I still want to see it.
