the end of Weiss Kreuz!  

Well.. that was morbid. Aya dying like that? How sad? It sucks to see all the characters convinced that they have to suffer.. Well except for Yohji and Nagi... Nagi is understandable, as he's not necessarily a good guy... though he's working with them. There is no word about what happened to the rest of Schwarz though..This episode was kind of like an aftermath, when the fight never really finished. ^^;

What happened? Here's the quick and dirty..

Sena died in ep 12.. They left off in the middle of the fight.
Ep 13 picked up in the middle of Yohji's dream. Apparently Yohji was in the hospital (tended by a nurse named Asuka! *shock* She looks lie her too! ^^;)

Omi survived the fight, but left the others for dead. He has no idea what happened to anyone save Nagi. Nagi seems to be working for him now? O-o
Yohji has lost his memory. He marries the nurse Asuka.. ^^;;
Ken puts himself in prison. Why? To punish himself. ^^;;;;;;; Until he can teach all the prison boys how to play soccer. ^^; And he likes to sit in solitary and think..
Omi is cold and mean to everyone, and very businesslike. Because he thinks that he has to punish himself by taking over this family. ^^;
Aya continues being an assassin.. for whom? I guess Omi but before, Omi didn't even know he was alive. ^^; Aya has a cool new assassin outfit though! ^.^ He looks goooooooooood!! Aya gives all his money to a church to raise orphans. The one day walking down the street, he is stabbed by a little kid that runs into him. He walks down the street until he dies, leaning against a mailbox, thinking about his friends.

bittersweet and morbid. ^^;; it's kind of corny, though, it makes me want to giggle. ^^;; bad me! X-x.;

All in all.... I liked Gluhen. Once I got past the ugly character designs (they grow on you) it was actually a pretty good series in the latter half. A few things seemed a little odd, but I guess it pretty much fits in with the "I pity myself but I think I shouldn't pity myself" attitude of first series. Nice characters too. So while a lot of other people didn't like it, I really am fond of it.. bad endings and all. ^^;
Current Mood: contemplative

I enjoyed Gluhen a lot too------ it made me laugh so much throughout the whole series xD The ending was so degrading for Aya and Yohji it made me want to cry lol But Weiss is Weiss and I <3 'em.

I was discussing the last ep with a friend.. and we came up with a few things...

I think Omi knows where at least Aya and Ken are.... Rex, on the other hand, doesn't know. She knows that they are alive because Omi told her as much, but not where they are. He promised Aya and the others that after this mission, the Takatori family would not bother them again... he's keeping what he knows to himself to uphold that promise... So I believe that Omi -does- know that Aya is alive... But he's giving them the distance/peace that he promised them... I doubt Aya can help doing what he does.. I don't know who he's working for... but he's doing what he knows how to do... Notice that he doesn't have his sword now... ^_~ That's cos Yohji never gave it back to him. la la la... ~kisses the YxA hints~

The main reason I think Omi knows that at least Aya and Ken are alive is that he was in the helicopter after that last mission.. He was on the phone talking to Rex, telling her about the mission... says that they need a hospital for Ken... but he and Aya were alright.. but they didn't know about Yohji... Yohji is the only wildcard where I'm unsure that even Omi knows what happened... ^^;

Ahh! Omi is lying to her! Yeah, I guess that makes sense, as someone had to give the order for Ken to go to prison "for as long as we need him to."

XD Ahh yeah, the YxA was sooo nicely hinted at. =^__^= As is my favorite, the NxO... My little boys have grown up, haven't they? *fangirl sighs*

I have my own take on things, but I really really liked the series...particularly the weirdness of it all. I do wish Sena had lived though. If you want to read something interesting done off the last episode, please read my Subaru journal. There are two posts called "After Gluhen" because I just had to write about it after seeing it. Obviously, you don't wanna start with the most recent one...the one before that is the start of it all. If you do, let me know what you think.

*nodnod* If I have time today, I will ^^

Well... we actually don't see Aya die. So he might be rescued just in time... *jumps into miracles happen mode* And isn't Aya alive in Weiss Side B?

And all in all I liked Gluhen. But the last episode... I already said in my journal that Weiss are worth of more than that. It felt rushed and sort of inconsistent. Maa, just my opinion.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on July 14th, 2003 02:09 pm (UTC)
Oh, you're right! Is Side B taking place after Gluhen, though? I thought it was just kind of like a side story of things that are happening throught the Gluhen storyline.. But I've never read it so I don't know. ^^;

Yeah, they are worth more than that. ^^

Yes, Side B takes place after Gluhen. One section of it shows Aya being saved from where he was collasped by the mailbox. ^^ I can't remember what part of the manga it's shown in, because I haven't been paying attention to Side B...^^;; Don't like Ken, na. I think Weiss is made up of...7 members in it...with only Aya and Ken from the original team.
堕天使 BLUEdatenshi_blue on July 14th, 2003 02:50 pm (UTC)
So does Yohji never recover his memory then?
Lyraadrenalynnrush on July 14th, 2003 02:55 pm (UTC)
It doesn't seem so. As far as I know, you don't hear anything about Youji or Omi in Side B. *shrugs* I haven't exactly been following the manga though, like I said. ^^ You can find info/translations/scans here: http://thefarshore.henkei.com/ There's also links to a few other sites dedicated to Gluhen and/or Side B

It's hard to say.. Either he doesn't, or he's faking that he lost it in the first place..
