It was a very nice show. I liked the characters and the art style. The story was alright. But what is with this ending?
They collected the swords just to destroy them and kill the shogun? Why? and why worst girl survived? What the fuck?
Everything was pointless in the end.
>and why worst girl survived?
But she was the best and won in the end.
Swords are controlled by their owners. His owner didn't want him to destroy the swords.
By going against that he became a person and not a sword.
Are we talking about the same person? She was manipulative, dishonest, low, cruel and perverse. How can you say she is the best and won?
Or am I missing something?
Best girl won.
I got that but why did they need to collect them in the first place if they just wanted to kill one person.
you're being tricked
To get an audience with the emperor
She didn't win, she just decided to follow Shichika and he let her because he wasn't bothered.
>She was manipulative, dishonest, low, cruel and perverse.
Are you talking about Togame?
Katanagatari was a story about failure etc etc
I guess the author would know a thing or two about failure since he wrote Katanagatari.
I guess your mom would know a thing or two about failure since she gave birth to you
Yeah, I don't know anymore. Everything was a bit confusing at the end. I thought maybe I missed something.
Didn't you see how Shichika just barged in and kill everybody? Why didn't they do that from the beginning?
Every single person who attempted to use the swords for something either gave up or failed. Usually died failing. Togame was no exception. Neither was the person who crafted the swords in the first place. The whole story was a moral lesson in just going with the flow.
Everybody failed. Every single person.
Rather, it was about existing on your own terms as a human being. You could take the way things were in the beginning as going with the flow, just obeying orders. The show built up to defying that.
Because that wasn't her plan and she didn't know he was strong enough to do it. He didn't even expect to survive, that's why he went.
> But what is with this ending? Why?
>worst / best girl shit
Kill yourself, please.
>Talking shit about Togame
I don't know who in this thread is doing this but stop it
She was easily the worst female character. Better characters died for less. So go fuck yourself, faggot.
It's like they didn't even read the same shit, yo.
>They collected the swords just to destroy them and kill the shogun?
This isn't even close to the plot. They obviously didn't originally intend to kill the Shogun jesus watch episode 1
There is not best or worst. A story is a story, and whatever happens within it happens. No one "deserved" anything more or less than anything else.
It was pretty depressing after it ended.
As much as I didn't like Togame sometimes, I didn't feel like she deserved to die.
It was just a shock ending, kinda thing. Though I'm sure there are some story overtones that I missed that glued it all together.
>liking any of the gatari shit
>Caring what people enjoy
I didn't write that sentence as in summarizing the plot. Maybe you would understand it better if I added "in the end". It felt like everything was wasted, everybody died, all was for nothing.
I liked Katanagatari and Bakemono was.. okay.
>But what is with this ending? Why?
>worst / best girl shit
Here you go, OP, just for you.
>mfw this is catching on
This is exactly as I felt and also why I can't understand Hitei Hime was left unpunished.
They collected the swords because Togame wanted an audience with the fucking Shogun, but she was killed in the process and Shichika got angry as fuck with the Shogun and killed him.
How can you be so stupid to not understand that?
I thought it was also about her dad's wish to restore the timeline or something. She wanted to fix the meddling Shikizaki Kiki had done by creating the swords, which were meant to destroy the current Shogunate.
So Togame's plan somewhat succeded.
Of course I understood that. Are you even reading the thread?
Still it doesn't answer the question. Everything went back to the same except for the blades and a ton of people dead.
My exact reaction after finishing with this a few days ago. In retrospective I think a good end would work just as well as the one we got. It felt a bit like author just decided to kill everyone in the end. The fucking talk about the futility of ambition and shit was depressing as hell, too.
