Worldend Ep 8 Review

Of course I loved this episode! Ctholly was still doing what she had been doing near the end of the last episode with cooking, cleaning, and supervising the younger girls. I can’t get enough of the relationship between her and Willem. It’s definitely a lot different from his relationship with the younger ones. Although, for the longest time, you couldn’t quite tell if he reciprocated┬áthose feelings or not. Sure, it was obvious he cared about her but we weren’t sure just how deep those feelings go. I kinda like romances that keep you guessing like that.

 

Willem’s interaction with his superior “technical officer” was amusing. I love how he handles personalities like that. *snicker* His reaction to the superior talking about the girls on that downed ship made my heart clinch a bit. His kindness and nurturing nature just makes my heart melt. He’s a wonderful character. It was a surprise to find out the survey team is after his home town. How crazy would that be to see your home town 500 years later?

 

It was so cute that Ctholly had been waiting for him. The way her face lit up when he showed up was adorable! She’s making sure she sticks close to him no matter what. I don’t blame her. I’d be doing the same thing. lol It’s not like he’s complaining much about the company anyway. I laughed so hard when she didn’t correct a clerk for calling them an engaged couple. Haha. Meanwhile, Willem looks mortified. He still didn’t complain much. She was so honest with him that she went with him because she just wanted to be around him. This is refreshing for honest feelings to be let out instead of the angst of keeping it to yourself!

 

So, the sword he spotted in that book during his meeting with his superior could help Ctholly’s disintegration. I really hope that will be the case. I just don’t want this to turn into an anime where one or both of them die. Anyway, I loved how honest he was in telling her that he was looking for it, that he wanted to help her. Since she woke up from the last disinigration, Willem has been increasingly more protective and watchful over her. That’s probably another reason he doesn’t complain about having her around a lot.

 

Totally didn’t expect her to say she was going to go with him when he leaves to find that sword. I couldn’t stop laughing. She totally got her way to. Haha. It was even funnier that the superior thought Ctholly was his lover. *snicker* The fact that Willem actually admitted he’d rather not be separated from her either really through me for a loop! I wasn’t expecting that much honesty. In most anime, the characters keep their feelings to themselves and you have to watch and experience their angst. Not the case here. There’s some angst but it’s not overwhelming. It’s obvious the two care about each other.

 

When Willem woke up in the library, only to sit up and have a kid fall of him, I couldn’t stop laughing. I love how that girl loves to sneak in a cuddle when he’s sleeping. It’s too cute. And OMG Willem’s confession! Ha! So Ctholly always had a chance but he’s keeping her at arm’s length. He didn’t really explain why. Not sure if it’s age or if it’s something else. Not quite sure. When he said “you tell her, I’ll end you”, his face was priceless.

 

Ctholly’s jealousy over Nephrin sleeping on the couch with Willem was pretty amusing. Of course there was nothing weird about that to begin with so it was funny to watch Ctholly make it out to be something dirty when it clearly wasn’t.

 

Nygglatho’s confession was not at all expected, given she’s a troll who would love to sink her teeth into him. LOL I also love how he asked to pretend he never heard any of that. Oh I don’t blame him. She’s far from his type anyway. At least right after that, we got a wonderful moment between Willem and Ctholly. She was so cute slowly walking up to him as he was staring up at the shooting stars. You could see how badly she just wanted to hold his hand. She was too scared to do it but Willem grabbed her hand. Of course I fan girled!

 

The dramatic moment of Almita falling from the roof really got my heart pumping. I was worried that would happen. We get to see Willem use that inhuman speed of his but it wasn’t going to be fast enough so Ctholly used her own power. I didn’t even know she still could but it was clear that she wasn’t suppose to try given Willem’s reaction when it was all over. He looked so scared and he even had tears in his eyes. I do love how he’s not afraid to show his emotions.

 

Now Ctholly has had another incident where she seems to see her previous self? Her hair is even more red now. I’m curious what Willem’s reaction will be in the next episode!

Worldend Ep 7 Review

Now that Ctholly can’t really fight anymore since her body’s changed, she can’t seem to really figure out what to do with herself. Meanwhile, there’s more “leprechauns” in an air ship we’re shown. I didn’t expect that, for their to be more of them. It seems like the plot is thickening quickly.

 

Looks like romance is really starting between Ctholly and Willem, although, at the moment, it seems one sided. Ctholly is adorable trying to make him notice her with simple things as cooking and cleaning. It does seem to have an affect on her, however. I really wish we knew what Willem’s age is! I can’t remember if we were told or not. I’m guessing early twenties judging by his maturity. The butter cake scene was precious as well as the exchange between them. This anime really pulls at my heart strings.

 

We finally got to see the surface and see the beasts that took over it. It reminded me of a giant bug. The scenes were surprisingly violent. I did forget there has been violence of this sort earlier in the series, I just sort of forgot. We don’t get to see the girls fight to often. Anyway, thankfully the ship it was attacking happened to have those two leprechans. They killed the beast but seems they may be stranded on the surface. I’m anxious to learn more of the history of humans and how their “creation” destroyed them. At least, thats what I gathered.

Worldend Ep 6 Review

This was an emotional one. I wanted to know why Ctholly was having those nightmares and visions, now we know why! The fact those those fairies are souls that were from the dead, that’s awful. The fact that it was one of Willem’s former human comrades whose behind it, is even worse. Willem’s reaction was definitely no surprise. Those precious girls he adores were being used by someone he had once trusted. Regardless of the reasons, they were innocent children and definitely should not have been subjected to this. Willem brought up perfect points about what is it he would exactly be returning to on the surface. It had been 500 years since he had been down there and no one they knew was alive.

 

Seeing Ctholly struggle with her battle was hard to watch. She was trying so hard to fight but stay alive at the same time. She kept thinking about those butter cakes she wanted Willem to make for her. Despite the fact her mind was deteriorating from her previous life memories trying to return, she was so determined not to chase after those memories. This is just my perspective, but I think she was seeing it as there was no reason to remember her past. She didn’t need to know it since she only cared about the present and the future. That’s how I saw it anyway.

 

It was also difficult to watch Willem grieve over Ctholly’s inevitable deterioration into death. He was expecting she’d never open her eyes again. The pain on his face was very well animated. I appreciate good animation when it comes to male expression. I don’t know why but sometimes animation can totally miss the mark on expression with men. lol Of course, I totally fan girled when Ctholly woke up and started talking to him, telling him that he’s been her first for so many things, down to being the first man she ever fell in love with. GAH! I did not expect him to cry! The way he loves her is just absolutely precious. I was definitely crying especially after he told her “welcome home” and she just burst into tears in his arms.

 

Now we get to wonder what cost this came at when she fought that deterioration. Stuff like this makes me nervous, I really don’t want either character to die. That was put a damper on this anime for me. Are you watching this anime? What did you think of this episode? Let me know in the comments!

Worldend Ep 5 Review

It was nice to finally see the girls in battle this episode. I was curious what they were like with their weapons. They’re fearless and really put forth a lot of effort into taking down enemies. It wasn’t a long battle scene but it was enough to give a taste of what the eldest girls could do in a fight. It was so cute how Ctholly was determined to go home victorious. She wanted those butter cakes!

 

I’m curious what those visions and voices are that Ctholly has been dealing with. We really haven’t gotten any answers yet and she hasn’t really been telling anyone about them. I can’t remember if it was common for them to get visions like that.

 

As always, the relationship with Willem and the girls is adorable as ever. I just really love how they made it not creepy whatsoever. It’s obviously there’s a bit of romance developing between Ctholly and Willem but the age differences isn’t enough to bug me plus it’s very subtle and hopefully they’ll drag this out over years (their bonding anyway). I’m still so curious how long this anime is going to last!

 

Willem handled the situation that client wanted handled quite well. I didn’t even think he as helping her until they went off to a secluded area. I thought it was funny how the client did not take kindly to being used as bate. Geez, she can’t even be grateful it was for the right reasons? LOL

 

The ending of the episode left me a little confused and nervous for Willem. I can’t remember the name that made him change his mind and go with the soldiers. He said good bye to her the same way he said good bye to his friend from 500 years ago. I really hope nothing happens to him. It really got me all fan girling when she admitted she loved him. GAH! I just really love this anime and I adore Willem’s character. Charming as ever! I can’t wait to see what else this anime has in store! Are you watching it? What do you think of it? Let me know in the comments!

Worldend Ep 4 Review

A lot of emotion in this episode. Seeing Willem panic over the girls missing sure tugged at my heart. Then when the troll Nygglatho tells him they’re all dead from a battle, the look on his face made my heart shatter. Thankfully he woke up and it was just a nightmare. It really showed just how much he cared about those girls. I’m just such a sucker for men who are good with children!

 

Willem’s day spent with Tiat was adorable to watch. It was definitely like watching a father and daughter spending the day together. It was cute and Tiat’s passion for the lizard romance movies was so silly but it showed just how full of life she was. It was nice to see one of the girls out of the “warehouse” and actually being a kid, a luxury they don’t get too often given what they exist for in the first place.

 

I’m curious about the scene of the family that got their food stand terroized. I heard in the crowd that their stand supported the Mayor. Sounds like there’s some politics involved on Corna De Luce, the floating city. I wonder if we’ll get to see more of what that’s all about and if it plays into the main plot of the story. The world seems pretty expansive and we haven’t gotten to see much of it yet except where the girls live and the floating cities.

 

We get to see Tiat experiencing this “tuning” that all the girls have to go through. Willem really struggles with this and it just makes me love his character even more. He hasn’t been with the girls too long but he’s grown so fond of them. It’s going to really suck if any of the girls die in this series. They’ll be some major tears for sure. I really hope we don’t have to deal with a dramatic moment like that.

 

A new character comes into the mix, what looks to be some sort of dog like person? I’m not sure really. It’s only 4 episodes in, so I imagine we’ll get more details in time. I hope this isn’t a 13 episode season. I want at least 20 episodes because I think we’d need that many to really get more details on the world and the characters, not to mentiont the interaction and connections between them. This character really wants to see the soldier whose leading the girls into battle. I’m sorry I can’t remember his name and I couldn’t find him on a character list either. If you know the name, be sure to leave in the comments! It would be helpful! Anyway, so while Willem is listening to her request, we see the soldier’s in the background shouting and talking about the very place where Chtholly is fighting with the other two girls. When he’s told the defenses failed, the look on his face was heart wrenching. We already know he’s suffering from those he was unable to protect 500 years ago and the thought of losing someone again, is incredibly traumatic. I was worried the girls were dead and it was going to really put a damper on the anime for me if that was the case.

 

Then as he’s spacing out in shock, the girls showed up and I was elated! It took a moment before he noticed them and when he took off to go to them, he ran at an incredible speed that was not normal. It was clear it was some kind of magic because even the Lizard commander was a bit surprised by it. I did not expect him to only grab Chtholly though. I thought for certain he’d gather all three of them but no, he went straight for Chtholly and I totally fan girled over that scene. Its clear his fondness for Chtholly differs slightly from the rest of the girls. I’m impressed with how “not creepy” they’ve made it to, given the age differences. We know Chtholly is like 15 and I’m still fairly certain Willem is in his early 20s. The ending of that episode though…Chtholly is so annoyed from him hugging her so tight she couldn’t breathe and embarrased her, so she slaps him. Haha. Too cute.

 

I look forward to the next episode! I really really love this anime. I do hope we get to see some more action and fighting scenes too. Right now there just seems to be a lot of character development and I’m okay with that. This is only episode 4. I can’t wait to see what the rest of this anime has in stored! Are you watching this anime? What do you think of it so far? Let me know in the comments!
