Planet With Final Episode (12): The clog saves the day again

This is the first finale I'm covering for this season, and it was pretty solid. The battle with the dragon felt really intense while still incorporating the silliness of pushing the dragon to defeat it. The final forgiveness was also handled in an interesting way, with Ginko surprisingly doing most of the work (she deserves it). I really enjoyed watching this series overall, and I'm a bit sad to see it go. Nice one.

This is about as ridiculous of a plan as I would expect from this series.

I definitely had the wrong impression of the dream scene with Souya. I thought it was finally his turn to experience the illusion of the sealing process, but it was a desperate attempt to dreg up some negative feelings. From the context of the episode, that makes a lot more sense than a sealing, but part of me would have liked to see more of Souya's fantasy.

Let's be honest. We all saw this coming.

Having Ginko carry the final conversation with the dragon is a nice touch. Her character finally gets a moment to contribute, and her conflicted feelings make a lot of sense. It's great to see her attempting to make sense of them.

I'm not going to lie. The People of Paradise felt like a weird deus ex machina when I really thought about it. After the dragon falls away, they manage to incorporate him into themselves without any trouble, and they show up to save Souya and the other when everything is over.

We did it?

Final Score: 9/10 Excellent pacing, a nice blend of serious and comical, and an absolute blast to watch.
