So, uh, Darling in the Franxx is just gonna do the end of Gurren Lagann by way of End of Evangelion, huh? That makes sense given the pedigree, and I hope the final episode is either some weird, Gainax-ass trippy shit or some crazy, Trigger-ass trippy shit. That might at least ease the amount of creeping indifference I feel for a series that started off going for batshit and has since muddled its way towards a really obvious conclusion.
@bladededge: I'm betting at least 3 to 1 we spend the bulk of the last episode in metaphysics land. I think the real stretch at this point would be hoping for an ending that makes any sort of narrative sense. Once the aliens were in all hope for any kind of grounded conclusion was out the window. At this point, I'm just interested to see just how off the rails it can get.
I guess we'll find out either way on Saturday.
