Well…that was an ending…I suppose. I can’t say this episode was bad…or maybe I can actually. The discussion between Nanana and Juugo was great, but in the end everything else about this episode stinks. The big final battle for the piece of Nanana’s collection never happened, the reward for that piece of the collection was not helpful in any way to solve the murder of Nanana and all this was the final episode of the show? I feel like Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin looked so promising when it began but turned to an abyss of nothingness so quickly it was unbelievable. Every episode on its own looked great and had good rhythm but overall, the story and characters were going nowhere. After watching the final episode of the show it still feels like no progress was done at all from where the show started, we got a couple of useless artifacts, our characters introduced themselves to one another, but what does that give us in the end?
What it gives us is a show with no conclusion, no purpose and just a fun story between characters into some exciting adventures leading to nothing. Through the course of the show we saw them do risky activity, never getting injured, never finding anything relevant to their interest. At this point I don’t even understand why those guys even bother with those piece of Nanana’s collection anymore. I feel like it is all for nothing no matter how you want to look at it.
I’m just so frustrated with this show, it had such great potential when it came out but it definitively didn’t deliver on it. The show was a pain once it could be deducted that the story would never resolve to anything, I’ve said it a lot and I’ll repeat it, this was just one big waste of time. I wish that things would at least be a bit more serious in the little story we had too, no one ever got actually hurt, no one died, and everyone seems to be constantly happy and have fun despite how stupidly harsh the challenge in front of them turns out to be. They have tools able to safe the world, magical item that are worth fortunes, and yet only a bunch of useless kid are after them and playing club activity to get them. The show lack a sense of seriousness for their universe to be worth the thrill, now the whole story and sense of adventure is lost once you really that risk is but an illusion and that those kids could as well just play house. After what was show I am completely turned off by any future season this might have. I do not care if the story start going somewhere in the second or if raptor jesus stars in it, Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin is a show I’ve now crossed off my list as something I would never watch again.
An overall review of the show will be up next week where I will discuss in more details everything wrong with it. For now I am simply too frustrated to have believed in the show to make any positive point about it. Even the final episode didn’t felt finished or focused on something in particular, this was an awful experience.
