Tears to Tiara – 21

Taliesin finds out the whole truth about what happened to Arawn in the past and tries to use what he learned to help them in their fight.

Impressions:

Disclaimer: I don’t feel like pretending I don’t know what is going to happen, and writing a section without spoilers and then one with them, as I’ve played the game. This post will contain massive spoilers to the whole plot. If you don’t want to be spoiled, then don’t read on. I won’t spoil anything simply for the sake of spoiling it, no needless spoilers, but they will be there. Final warning.

This episode was really good. It concluded what I thought was one of the best parts of the game. Although, as is to be expected, it was nowhere near as emotional or just as good as the game was. I don’t even mean the end, but in the beginning of this episode when they were finishing the story of Arawn as an angel. It just was so much more emotional in the game, you really felt this struggle and plight for Arawn to try and make the world a better place in a less genocide way as the other angles wanted. How much he sacrificed to see nothing change and how he then realized what Mrrydin meant.

The other big thing was of course Taliesin “dying” in this episode. I thought it was done really well, but again I have the game to compare it to and it doesn’t do quite as well, but overall this whole arc about showing the back-story and having Taliesin make this sacrifice was still done very well, better than some other parts of the anime compared to the game.
