We’re seriously going to end this fairly dull anime with an episode about Kino getting chased by sheep? Really? This is really what you want the audience to remember? And yet, I can’t say I’m overly surprised given this show hasn’t really done much of anything since the first handful of episodes that really seems like it is aware that it should consider the audience.
Despite Kino being able to have avoided being pinned against the ravine by the sheep if she’d actually taken Hermes on an angle past the second herd, and despite the fact that they were sheep (okay, we find out they are fighting sheep but they’re sheep) Kino ends up getting a last stand style scene where she just mercilessly sets them on fire and shoots down any resistance. It is stupid, it is unnecessary, and the presentation is obnoxiously grandiose consider she’s fighting with sheep.
Farewell Kino’s journey. I won’t miss you and the only revisiting I will do will involve writing a whole series review about all the ways you went wrong.
