    Air Gear - Final Thoughts

    Not horrible, and not super awesome. I definitely enjoyed it despite whatever flaws it might have had. Maybe this is a perfect example of why I should be labeled as a fickle being? Maybe Air Gear was just a decent anime and people are stupid? Who knows?!?

    Air Gear - 25 (END)

    Crows: Lots of real ones…

    What a happy ending! I couldn’t have thought of a better ending to put at the end of this series. Despite the ups and downs of this series, I think it turned out rather well in the end. This final episode is one of the better final episodes I’ve seen in a while. Brace yourself for a lengthy read, ya bastards.

    Ringo finally shows her awesomeness

    Crows: 2

    And so begins the final event of the series. It seems like something Ikki could do easily, but then again, he has yet to hone his skills. More importantly, Ringo was all over this episode and I was pretty much drooling the whole time.

    Crows: 2 (omg crows???? one doesn’t really count but whatever)

    Not horrible, but not all that great either. I figured that Ikki would end up meeting at least one of the major bosses in Kyoto so I was kind of bored. Although, I must say there were a few surprises in this episodes(not huge ones) that kept me relatively entertained.

    Sad. The episodes are starting to stray from why I liked Air Gear so much. I loved the insane humor and the shameless plugs of fanservice of the earlier episodes. It feels now like they’re being too serious and it’s just not cutting it.

    Oh hohoho, peeping Tom? At least it’s not Ume in the tub…

    Crows: 4 (technically only 2 but its 2 different shots and I’m generous)

    Not a bad episodes at all in terms of plot development. I didn’t find anything in this episode overly exciting or funny, but things have finally started getting moving and Kogarasumaru is getting some recognition.

    No crows, but still. *Applaud* Thank you for ending the arc in a wonderful fashion, and not leaving any bitter aftertaste in my mouth. I really had no doubt that Kogarasumaru would win, but I was really wondering how they would manage to do it in the flashy air gear style. This worked.

    Air Gear - Trick 19

    Rating: 7.5/10

    Crows: 0 - But we still have some shots of Ringo and Simca. Plus I guess the girl with one leg. No panorama’s or anything though.

    Not a horrible episode, but not the episode I had expected it to be either. Parts of it felt like it dragged on a little bit, and the fighting wasn’t super great. One thing I did enjoy though, is Ikki’s style of fighting. He always seems to have fun and is pretty carefree compared to how others would act in the same situation.
