This show has certainly surprised me. When I first started watching I really didnâ€™t have very high expectations of the show and honestly didnâ€™t care too much about it. It wasnâ€™t my all time favorite genre and it didnâ€™t seem enthralling form the premise or even the first several episodes, but I stuck with it mainly because all the other show I watched were of relatively the same genre and I wanted to mix things up a bit.
Iâ€™m glad that I did, because what started out as a relatively moderate and average show, with random people fighting random monsters with some basic and uninspired abilities, turned into something hat had a lot more depth to it. It wasnâ€™t something that just remained a boring, lets defeat all these ominous bad guys in this strange world we were thrown into, they threw in things like how the bad guys which they had killed over half of were actually trying to stop the end of the world. Something like that just changes the entire dynamic of the show. These arenâ€™t innocent people fighting against mindless monsters; they are people who are keys to the destruction of the world fighting against the good guys trying to stop it. The fact that there were effectively three sides to this, and not two made things just oh so much better. There was the super evil witch, who both the Dark Knights and the school kids wanted dead, but the Dark Knights wanted to kill the school kids so they couldn’t be used as keys to the destruction of the world, while the school kids just wanted to not die and not have the world destroyed. This back and forth of different alliances and motivators made a relatively average, if that, first half of the series much more interesting.
I did get very surprised at the last couple of episodes, but when things started going THAT bad I figured they would have to reset the world somehow, thought I didnâ€™t expect that they would first say that pretty much most of the second to last episode was all a precognition. That was a bit weird, though even after that the meganeko and rebel guy were still dead, while it was possible they could have kept them dead, I still guessed they would reset it again which they did, and Iâ€™m fine with it. It was exciting and dark enough during the final episodes that bringing them back didnâ€™t really hurt the show too much. Plus, I really loved the meganekoâ€™s character. Overall, though the series started off weak, it finished very strong and overall I thought was a very enjoyable watch
