It is very hard to take an episode seriously when it begins with a character being attacked by and then being up a panda. Sorry, but after twenty more minutes of old dying guy telling story I was still stuck on the whole fact that the best way they could show us Houhou toughing it out in the mountains was to have her attacked by a panda. Regardless of anything else that happened, MAL tells me this is the final episode and yet almost all of it was flashback and then Soran decided he’d participate in the tournament thing that was mentioned many episodes ago. The end. Okay, no answers at all and almost no forward character progression. This show hasn’t been as bad as Taboo Tattoo but whether they ever make a part 2 or not, I’m done.
