Kimi zu Boku no Saigo no Senjou - Chapter 10: The girl wants a star
After the complicated mission that Unit N07 participated in and reviewed its mission history, all of its members will be sent on vacation with the next 60 days off. This will take the opportunity to find a way to solve the problem of mismis and their astral ridge.
Without neglecting the fact that they are on vacation, they decide to go to Alsamira, an independent nation. Which, although it has not declared itself neutral, neither of the two factions supported in the war. Spend the day enjoying it to the fullest until Iska meets the girl he rescued from prison at dusk.
The girl introduced herself as Sisbell, who paid her a visit to her hotel room every evening. While talking to him, she sought his cooperation in order to walk with her towards sovereignty.
Kimi zu Boku no Saigo no Senjou - Chapter 11: The witch hunt
The little girl continues the conversation between Sisbell and Iska and apologizes for the interference, but no matter what she wants from Iska's support, she will not give up. Shortly afterwards leave the room.
The next day Iska thought for most of the day. Although it did not seem very strange to his companions, because they still could not come up with a plan to solve the problem of their captain's astral ridge.
Iska changed the hotel they were staying in so as not to meet Sisbell. However, it didn't work. Without the others seeing her, Iska returns to talk to her. This time she discovers her full name and her affiliation with the royal house of sovereignty. To be a candidate for the crown. While they discuss their reasons for ending the war, they are interrupted by the masked man who accuses Sisbell of being a spy for the Empire.
The plot in the past episodes It had been quite interesting with the appearance of Salinger and the problem of the astral ridge of Mismis. But it has only just begun Kimi to Boku no Saigo no Senjou - Chapter 10 I was a little disappointed that all units N07 received vacation.
Mainly for three points: You are in wartime and are one of the best teams in the Empire, but you will have 60 days of vacation. Despite the fact that Iska wants to end the war, he has not shown a disagreement with the holidays since then. Being at the front has more opportunities to end the war once and for all. It was a very comfortable long vacation to find a solution to the serious problem of the captain's astral ridge.
In short, I felt that this vacation background arc was a bit forced and too comfortable to determine the depth of the plot. That's not why I think the bow is bad, after all, in addition to fan service, it also has its pros in history. However, I think there were better ways to show them off without feeling so compelled.
For example, Unit N07's next mission was to investigate the spread of rumors in Alsamira of their union with the Empire. It looks like you're on vacation, but you're actually on an undercover mission. Of course, take less time to complete the mission. The one from the Empire.
On the part of sovereignty, I would personally have it show quite similarly as it is. I don't have the feeling that his actions went astray. I just think the way the storyline might be developed alongside the Empire crashed. Thus, both factions would have sent someone to find out the truth behind Alsamira's rumors. Creating the opportunity for Iska and Sisbell to meet, just as the swordsman did with Alice before.
This way from the beginning of the arc in Kimi to Boku no Saigo no Senjou - Chapter 10 The plot seems to take a more strategic and / or political path than one that is full of action. Just so that development gets to the point where it ended Kimi to Boku no Saigo no Senjou - Chapter 11. With a Sisbell held responsible for betrayal and the appearance of the new mechanized villain.
Lots of characters, little development
Without doubt Kimi to Boku no Saigo no Senjou - Chapters 10 and 11 had the appearance of many characters. Some of them are his portrayal as emperor or the princesses Sisbell and Elletaer of sovereignty. While others could (and should) be more relevant in this part, like Captain Mismis and the Masked Man. The Empire faction, however, falls far short of what the sovereign characters brought to history.
As a traitor to sovereignty, Elletear's suspicions about her sisters and their connection to the Empire, the realization that the Queen is still a mother who cares for her daughters, Alice and Rin's discovery that Sisbell knows about Iska. All of this adds to the hopeless and hopeless Captain Mismis, who has no ideas on how to solve her own problem and the brief appearance of the fox-like emperor.
I've been thinking for some time that the characters of Sovereignty are generally better brought up than those of the Empire. Perhaps due to the fact that they have almost no characters with mysterious touches to solve, since Sainger and the members of the Zoa family are the only ones. Or that the empire has too many of them: the Kaiser, Risya, Crossweil, the missing apostles, etc. But Kimi to Boku no Saigo no Senjou - In chapters 10 and 11 I can only confirm that the sovereignty has better characters than the empire. Although they're not perfect either.
Of course, since Elletear, I've had the feeling that it's not as "good" as it seems. In fact, I suspect she is the traitor to sovereignty. He accused his sisters of later taking the throne. Finally, your promotional trips to choose will give you access to various places where you can discreetly plant rumors and / or false information to your advantage. Achieve his goal with the Zoa family.
However, she is my favorite sister in the Lou family. Both for its aesthetic appearance and for the detail of the heterochromy. Also, of course, her voice, which carried the greatest weight when she was chosen as my favorite of the Lou family.
The seiyuu is responsible for their voice Miyuki Sawashiro, One of my seiyuu Favorites. Other characters he has contributed to include: Suruga Kanbaru ((Monogatari series), Saeko busujima ((High school of the dead), Jun Sasada ((Natsume Yuujinchou), Bishamon ((Noragami), Shino Asada ((Sword art online), among many others.
Details from Kimi on Boku no Saigo no Senjou - Chapters 10 and 11
Although I do believe the plot may have progressed better to the point where it ended Kimi to Boku no Saigo no Senjou - Chapter 11. What worried me the most was that the disturbing villain in the bow will be the Empire's droid. What just popped up in this episode. So the villain will surely be defeated again in a single chapter. After all, that was already known Kimi to Boku no Saigo no Senjou it would only have 12 episodes. So the next one will be the last chapter.
The fact that the next chapter is the last creates conflict for me. Because there are many things in this "arc" that could give the whole plot more depth. But it seems that they will not play the necessary role. Other than that, these two chapters raised a few questions for me that I would like to resolve. Something I see very little possible now with the appearance of the droid and the masked man.
It can still end with a "continues" referring to a second season or that they choose a more original ending to close the series. At this point, if I was asked which of the two options I would choose, it would be the second. Personally, I don't think this adaptation was so good that it triggered a second season. I don't mean, of course, that it was bad, far from it. It just didn't show me the potential until that penultimate episode that I originally thought would have.
Which also gives me hope at the same time to see a sequel in search of at least some of the potential I saw at the beginning of the series.
In the end, I won't get upset about a sequel, but I won't be sad if there isn't a second season either. However, it remains to be seen how this streak will end to be sure.
