Kannagi, “Truly Ephemeral”

Posted by Doug on December 27, 2008

A brief summary of the episode: Nagi’s gone, and Jin misses her.

Actually, even if I wrote a detailed summary of the episode, “Nagi’s gone, and Jin misses her” would sum it up pretty well.  Nothing happened in this episode…again, leaving me with the fear that this series, which started off so strong, will end in an incredibly forgettable fashion.  There is one episode to go, and they are going to need to pack that episode full of story arc resolution in order to rescue the series.

I mean, think of the loose threads: the bugs/impurities, that person Nagi mentioned she liked back in the second episode, the fire at the Kannagi Shrine, Nagi and Zange’s origins, the Hakua girl Zange is possessing, Nagi and Jin reconciling their differences…either the final episode is going to be a whirlwind and seem rushed, or not all loose threads will be tied up.

I guess I’ll find out next week. I just hope this series doesn’t end leaving me hating it.

    Everything I’ve read online says Kannagi is only going to be 13 episodes. Where did you hear otherwise?
