This is something new I want to try out. I figure if I call my blog “Spoils” I might as well live up to the name. Sometimes, before I read or watch a series, I want to know what happens in the end. Like, is the ending good or will it end up sucking? [I’ve had too many experiences where the series I’m reading just completely blows or the ending is something I don’t like]
Or I’m too lazy to watch or read the whole thing and I just want to know the meat of things so I can understand what people around me are talking about ^^
For my first rendition of Spoilers, I’m going to write a quick summary about the end to Tokyo Majin.
Just to let you know I already forgot the names of most of the characters so I’m going to use nicknames or quick descriptions :p
In the end, the gang + the Martial Arts Fist group go and fight the evil bad guy. They get their asses whooped badly. Just when it seems like the world is screwed, Aoi goes oh yeah I have that super power that everyone was all crazy for back in the first season (dumb bitch :/). After giving some speech about them not going to die, she unleashes her powers and everyone is healed. The four guardians (the wrestler dude, the blonde chick with the cat from the first season, Hisui, and that homeless guy with the glasses) + Tatsuma (bc he’s that golden dragon thing – well, a part of it. I think he’s the Yang part and that kid in the wheelchair was the Yin part) go and fight the evil guy.
The scene changes to the school. Tokyo is still trying to recover from being nearly annihilated. Komaki’s family survived. So did reporter girl’s. Wrestler guy’s father’s whereabouts are still unknown. Many other students and families are missing as well. The school is going to hold a graduation – something to boost everyone’s spirits. But Tatsuma isn’t there. At first we think he’s dead but he actually went after the bad guy to fight him some place else.
I’m not sure if Aoi’s eye blew up or something but she’s wearing a patch over it. Aoi is looking up at the cherry blossoms, lost in thought. Komaki comes and they talk about stuff.
[I’m not sure when the old guy with the beard says this, but he mentions that the power of the guardians is too much for the human body to handle – and we see this through scene shifts; homeless guy falling to his knees, coughing. Wrestler guy is holding his wrist in pain. Blonde girl is calling out to Tatsuma, her eyes blind. She collapses. Only Hisui is fine (or appears that way). Since I’m talking about old guy, I’ll add this part: wheelchair guy is currently staying in some cave with old guy and his peeps. Wheelchair guy is missing a leg and an arm. He’s all wrapped up like a mummy in holy bandages (I guess). He learned his parents were killed in the Tokyo incident. He regrets not being his true self in front of them. Then he asks about Tatsuma. Tatsuma promised to make him laugh…]
Blah blah, we get to a scene where Kyoichi is staring up at the cherry tree thinking of Tatsuma. Aoi comes behind him and they talk. Kyoichi says he knows where Tatsuma is. Aoi is happy and says she’ll get the others. Kyoichi says he’s going alone. Aoi says she’s coming too. Kyoichi tells her no, she’s needed here. Aoi won’t hear it. She’s set on going with Kyoichi. When Kyoichi still won’t let her come, she slaps him. She says he never tells the real reason for things. She doesn’t want him to go because who’ll protect her? She’s tired of protecting everyone. [I was screaming NO KYOICHI! NO! DON’T GET WITH HER! DON’T! during this part XD ]
Kyoichi pats her on the head and says she’s done enough. She’s done all she can and that’s good enough. Take a break.
He leaves Aoi behind (I’m sorry but YES!) – but he leaves his…cloth sheath thing for her to hold on to. He meets up with Hisui and they travel together to Tatsuma’s location – China.
Bunny old guy watches them leave, saying something cryptic like Bloom and Fall, Bloom and Fall – so many times. Try not to fall this time. (I’m thinking since he’s some kind of old demon thing and the anime is based off a video game with sequels, he’s referring to those characters in the video game that have tried to fight the evil bad guy and I guess didn’t manage to beat him?)
The scene shifts real quick to Tatsuma fighting – saying he’ll be a cherry blossom that won’t fall.
Another scene shift – this shows the graduation ceremony commencing and stuff happens.
The last scene shows Kyoichi in a tree mumbling how long does Tatsuma plan on going, he’s hungry. Suddenly he has a vision and sees Tatsuma. Kyoichi jumps down from the tree, smiling. He says Tatsuma better be prepared because he’s coming to wake him up.
Yeah…that’s the end. So Tatsuma is still fighting the evil bad guy (I don’t even remember why he wanted to blow up the earth >_>;), meaning the fate of the world rests on his shoulders and…we don’t know what that result is. I’m hoping it’s favorable ^^; It’s almost as bad as Venus Versus Virus‘s ending…
I kind of wished we got to see into more character’s backgrounds though the extra episodes helped explain Komaki’s relationship with that wasp girl and what happened to her arm, and the conclusion to the fight between wrestler boy and Kyoichi when they were younger. You also get to see young Aoi bitch slap Kyoichi for beating up a drug dealer >_>;
The last last extra shows Tatsuma’s past more – about his alienation from the other kids growing up. It made me want to hug him. The last scene was especially heartbreaking when he smiles to all his friends and tells them thank you (this happens just before Tatsuma disappears to fight evil)
I’m kind of hoping there’s going to be a third season of Tokyo Majin but after so much time has passed since the 2nd season…I doubt it but you never know! (Look at Fafner)
