All right /a/, I just finished Jormungand. Let me start by saying that I enjoyed the fuck out of most of this series. When it was good, it ranked up with Code Geass in terms of sheer entertainment for me. But god damn. What a shitty ending.

Actual spoiler alert: Where the fuck was Koko’s comeuppance? Why did she not get told hard for being a crazy bitch? Since when is sacrificing innocent lives and limiting humanity’s freedom acceptable traits in a save-the-world-plan? Why did Jonah never get any resolution as to being molested by her? Why is their romance never touched upon again? Why does Valmet follow her without ANY misgivings whatsoever? Where is the big arc where the whole world rebels against Koko while struggling against the Jormungand system? Why do we never see Koko interact with Floyd, a decisive character in her life? How come we never see more of Echo, who prompted her transformation into the woman we knew? Why does Mildo never directly interact with Valmet again? Where was the big final standoff where Jonah rejects Koko for maximum SUFFERING? What’s so foolproof about Jormungand? Why can’t ground vehicles and soldiers just use maps and runners? Why can’t ships just navigate by the stars? Why can’t somebody just build a giant railgun that doesn’t use a wireless network and shoot down all the Jormungand satellites?

He enjoyed it. That's why he came back to her.

Looking back, this whole series has pretty much been “wasted potential: the anime.” Hex is a good example. She was set up to be a grade A villainess; Koko’s archrival, the one who took Echo from her and hates her more than anyone else. But instead of some big retaliation arc after R’s death she just calls in a B-52 and that’s the end of it. No more Hex, no more suffering. We get her tearing up a bit after R’s death but that’s it. That was also the only arc where Koko had the face the possibility of being betrayed, and even then R had no intention of doing it. Koko cares about her crew a lot but this is never used for story purposes. They all just go “yeah, she’s crazy, but she cares about us, so I’ll just go along with sending humanity into a new dark age.” Night Nine is another good example. They’re pretty much the ONLY opponents in this entire show that Koko’s team didn’t oneshot, yet they never face them again.

Do you know what’s worse than an ambiguous ending? A canon bad ending. And do you know what’s even worse than a canon bad ending? A canon bad ending that depict itself as good. This is one of the most unsatisfying endings in anime history, and I for one am fucking peeved.

Also, Kaspar is the hero Jormungand’s world both needs and deserves, and I for one would spend all my shekels on those cudgels of his.

I might have an easier time accepting this if /ss/ was the answer to everything, but there was no real sexual subtext to their reunion.

What? He was?

Jormungand has these hugely accurate cameras and there are over 126 of these things rotating over earth constantly. You really think that Koko isn’t going to notice and just send in her team to slaughter them?

Fine, why not rewire an existing anti-satellite missile so that it can't be controlled externally and then pre-program it with the necessary flight directions and THEN launch it.

Mister Frodo, why would you WANT to stop her? The world is engaged in a constant state of warfare. Koko's solution is the only way to stop that. Are you saying you'd take worldwide chaos and destruction over not being able to fly places?

is that agent Mulder?

What are you talking about OP? It was a great ending. You already hit the nail on the head.

>Also, Kaspar is the hero Jormungand’s world both needs and deserves, and I for one would spend all my shekels on those cudgels of his.

Jonah will go back to Koko and keep getting that /ss/ all day errry day. Meanwhile Kaspar will continue to sell weapons, building up an enormous fortune. Eventually, he'll find a way to take down Jormungand so he can make even more dosh. The world will be freed, and Koko, who has since fallen even more in love, will escape with Jonah to live a happy life somewhere away from civilization. Good ends all around.

Ground-based observation sites then. Though I find it hard to believe that you could "hack" a radar system if you isolated it from outside networks.

And that's why it's shit. Go watch Black Lagoon OP.

>>101966874
Black Lagoon is just "lel violence and tits so edgy" for 25 episodes.

Neither of them are good.

If you didn't like Black Lagoon then why on earth would you watch Jormungand?

The author pretty much just said "I am tired of this, lets just end it" and so he did.

That's pretty damn disappointing. Is he at least doing something else now?

>>101967314

They are both about villains and gunporn. Except Black lagoon has a semblance of character development.

My question is the dub any good?

Not him, but Jormungand has an Iwasaki OST.

If you want to talk about anime it might help if you've actually seen some.

For me it was Black Lagoon, less interesting edition.
Sure it was fun to watch, but it took itself too seriously, the characters were never in any real danger, and the ending did everything wrong.

6/10 and I'm being generous

Fuck the guns, Jormungand has some great planes.

It's such a damn shame there are hardly any plane-centric anime. There's Area 88 but that's about it. There's also Sky Crawlers but propeller airplanes are for chumps.

Koko is my waifu. But she is a degenerate heretic.
