|I know, not very clever naming.
|When I said smaller, I meant WAY smaller.
|Two faces are better than one.
|Giant robots? How original!
|I mean, just look at that horizon!
|I dare you not to get excited when Kamina starts monologuing.
|But still with giant fighting robots.

VERDICT: The show ends with a time skip in the final episode: the final battle is fought, and the characters are shown going about their lives several years later. I'd be lying if I said I'm totally happy with how the show ended, but the creators kind of cut off the characters' stories where they needed to.
|You'll understand this image when you see the ending.
SCORE: 9/10 (Wonderful)
VERDICT: Revive/Rest in Peace
