WorldEnd as a series continues to run incredibly hot and cold. There are some truly amazing moments and well delivered scenes where everything just falls perfectly into place complete with atmospheric music. Then there’s all the stuff in between where you wonder if you are even watching the same show.
This episode was no exception to that conflict that’s been bugging me since episode 2. While Willem reuiniting with someone who knew him from 500 years ago certainly allowed for some timely flashbacks, some new information about how the world came to be the way it is, as well as a few obvious conspiracies thrown in, it also opened up some poor comedy choices and some fairly lack lustre characterisation.
As such, it was the plot built around Chtholly that stole the emotions this week even if the early threads of this plot didn’t exactly make it seem that fascinating. I will give her this, she certainly makes the most creepy visions unlike Willem’s earlier luke-warm effort at traumatic nightmares.
While the ending of this sequence was ultimately predictable, it was emotionally rewarding even as it opened up yet more questions than it answered about the fairies and the world.
WorldEnd is available on Crunchyroll.
