The final battle draws near.
They’ve finished their cellphone, but there’s one problem Senkuu forgot to mention. They need two phones for this operation. Making another cellphone can wait for later, though. A landline from Senkuu’s lab to Ishigami Village will be enough for the moment. After a successful test, Ruri appeared to be a little to familiar with speakers. Among the Hundred Tales, the 14th story was more than just about bees speaking with the dead. A message only modern humans could understand was awaiting Senkuu. Back at his father’s grave, a time capsule containing a phonograph record was found. The parts needed to assemble a phonograph were quickly gathered, and a message from the founders was heard by all the villagers. Additionally, they heard a recorded song for the very first time. Lillian’s final performance blew everyone away. If this is what science is cable of, then everyone is looking forward to the future. However, spring is coming. An information war with the assistance of two not forgotten friends will soon be underway.
If you haven’t heard the good news, then we’ve been green lit for a season 2. It won’t be too long before we dive back into the stone world. Still, let’s keep focus upon this season. Looking back, this has been quite the long journey. Nearly half a year for us and more than a year for our young scientists. Nonetheless, it was a exhilarating ride from start to finish. We started from square one and we’re already back to phones. The power of science will soon have us at modern times, well as long as Tsukasa can be dealt with. Moreover, I’ve talked plenty about the story over the prior months. There’s no grievances from me there. Senkuu and Ishigami Village are a lovable bunch. No matter what they’re working on, there’s entertainment to be found. However, working on these reviews were brutal to say the least. TMS Entertainment did an overall great job. Understandably, they were never going to match Boichi’s art style. Still, I’ve never worked on a show with so many panning shots. This review brings the grand total of stitches to 1,013. Hopefully season 2 can bring a little more animation and a bit less sliding around. Regardless, TMS was able to maintain a constant animation standard from episode 1 to 24. That is something I’ll always be thankful for.
So, what about the score? I strongly believe this adaptation can sit at a 8/10. There’s certainly room for improvement, though few pieces out there could state otherwise. Furthermore, I hope you’re all looking forward to season 2. We’ll be bringing back some old friends, meeting a whole lot of new faces, and starting the stone war. Don’t expect this to be a one-sided battle, too. Tsukasa hasn’t been sitting idle all winter. It’ll be a war to remember, so be sure to check back here in the future. Anyhow, it’s time for our long awaited break. Enjoy hearing the voices of the dead!
This isn’t even close to being over. Look forward to season 2 in the future!
