And so it continues unto the end. Very good story.

It seemed somewhat anti-climactic to me. First of all, I didn't really get what happened with Gakku. Did that blood he had really create any effect on the beast at all? Because it seemed like he just happened to be there, and that's it. And secondly, it felt like once the god-beast's will was broken, it just degenerated into a lot of hacking apart with swords, which IMO is a depressing way to bring down something that cannot be killed.

But that's me. Still a lot better than I could have done, especially considering it was Gakku who was chosen. Image

A shame that Nobane's participation was so very very short. And I was just wondering: WHERE THE HELL IS THE SHOGUN OF THE EMPIRE?

I think what happened is that with Kimi unmaking the remains of the true God within the beast, combined with the blood Gakku used, the God beast became vulnerable. So hacking ensued.

I quite liked the story overall, a bit too much Phoenix, but at least they got squished. :P

Aren't we, like, allied with the Phoenix or something? So why do we want to see them turned into pancakes?

Sure, I just am not a big Phoenix fan really. I know nothing of the player base though. Like with Spider, like the player base, hate the clan.

I cried manly tears for her sacrifice. I hope we eventually find out what happened though, because it was probably an awesome battle.

I'm wondering how she managed to avoid being killed. Especially since with a lazy wave of it's arm the god beast took out an large bunch of Phoenix.... I mean, that's one hell of a dodge! Even from horseback!

Also a bit narked that it happened off-screen... you'd think that the events leading to a major injury of the Utaku Daymio would rate at least 1 or 2 lines in the story... right??
