So Guys is there a difference between a fiend and karma demon? That part was never clear to me
A Karma Demon unintentionally has a Cantus leakage he has no influence upon. Meaning no matter if he wants to or not, the Cantus leaking out of his body changes everything around him, leading to death or some kind of mutation. Karma Demons have absolutely no control over their Cantus leakage but besides that they can be your average nice guy.
Hope it's clear now
waaaaa so it's all over now.
the parallelism with humans and discrimination of your own kind was very well played. I had that feeling ever since Squealer started calling himself another shogun or something like that. When they expressed that they were intelligent beings, or that they should never be treated like slaves, rang very true like any other story of human oppression in our real-life history. fucking awesome.
I wished more of an elaborate epilogue though, like, more details, just to satiate a long hard series worth of mystery. It was refreshing to see positivity again after such a long time- so when that was left to maybe three minutes out of the entire episode, I was a bit downhearted.
But, still, this series gets my praise. Very smart and gripping. genius.
Good God, the last eps!
My first reaction to the eps was NO! since Kiroumaru died. Then, it was all a mess.
The fact that queerats were humans made me feel really conflicted. I do think that despite his crimes, Squealer does not deserve that punishment. No one deserves that kind of punishment. It's just too cruel. I'm glad Saki ends his suffering.
Oh, and they finally remember Shun. I know he can't live again, but at least he lives on through his friends' memories. It would be a very lonely ending for Shun if no one can remember him.
I cannot say I'm satisfied with this series overall... The ending is happy, but it just leaves me with the question "Is that all?"
They live happily ever after. There. Done. Finished. So?
Somehow I'm not satisfied. It's as if some important questions were left unanswered. But well, at least I can say that this series is great since it pushes us to think philosophically and psychologically about society and humanity. It is successful in this part, but plot-wise, well.. *shrug*.
maybe not plot-wise... more on the wrapping up of things. But I don't know if there's more material to a last episode than what was shown in the novel.
I was kind of hoping to see Saki become the new chief. I mean that way she could've done a lot more rather than just hope that the people of the future will be better than those of the past. Nevertheless the final episode was a great ending to a great series. I feel sorry for those that missed out on such a great show just because the protagonists were children for quite a few episodes, and also due to the teenage homosexuality.
