M3 – Sono Kuroki Hagane Ep. 24 (Finale): The nightmare finally ends as him: she doesn't want an ending where everyone becomes one. [Spoilers] M3: Sono Kuroki Hagane Episode 1 Discussion (webob.info) . Mari Okada is good at characters and relationships, even if she's not the best .. I mean c'mon the things she tries to do near the end almost made me. M3: The Dark Metal (M3〜ソノ黒キ鋼〜, Emu Surī: Sono Kuroki Hagane, lit. Because her guardians had no real love for her, she ended up neglected and While searching on her old writings, she finds her connection with Emiru; when they.
How was it going to choose to end it all. I will maybe award the third, as Minashi has turned into our antagonist for seemingly no other reason than we are just out of other options if Tsugumi can not be the villain. And if designated hero Akashi defeats him it would break down some vectors of the love polyhedron and leave the two islander girls.
Everything else though, well, Tsugumi is responsible for the necrometal deaths of an untold number of people over a decade long span of time. Sure, she had her inner rage due to thinking her childhood crush was taken from her, when the time they were all little kids and ran away were really just scared out of their minds by the horrors of the Lightless Realm.
But, I mean, she has been fueled by this seemingly broken crush and in turn has fueled an engine of death and destruction which has rendered a nice multi-mile area of Japan inhospitable for years, in addition to further deaths via investigative efforts within it.
He can not quite pull it off the same as Heito did in his heyday though, or even the psychic projection of Heito last episode. Then the projection of Sasame finally shows up, resonates with Akashi, and Minashi is sad. Our characters speak of how they could ever possibly connect, as Minashi only wanted to infect everyone with necrometal so the world could understand each other. Reaching out with their hands and hearts, as that too is like linking and making connections to each other, is provided as the answer and to act the message of this program.
M3 – Sono Kuroki Hagane Ep. 10: Bro envy
Cue finale montage, Lightless Realm all gone now, IX in trouble for its actions, research on how to restore those affected by necrometal contamination, and so on. And there is so little feeling to any of it; IX has clearly supposed to be akin to running our NERV equivalent throughout the show, but so nameless and perspectiveless has been the handling of the leadership officials we still just do not know anything about them. Then we have our character section, which is understandable as a note to end on.
Mammu reading to the impaired Emiru her short fiction relating to her fictional character based on herself of Mahsa, that is a nice conceptual moment.
We barely got to see them do much together over the course of the series, and the show sabotaged their best moment a few episodes ago, so I can not say it has much weight or resonance. Material relating to why some of said writing was alarmingly accurate to present events early on in the series before it just flat out forgot about that plot point has never been touched on. I guess Tsugumi must have also read the fiction journal at some point ten years ago, and Mammu has been using the exact same book ever since?
That is about all I can think of. Heito is giddy and happy because he has his old snuggly wuggly teddy bear now. Keep in mind, this is a character who has committed multiple sexual assaults, physical by his own hands and body and mental via LIM unit psychic connections, across the course of the series to no retribution at all. Characters have feared him for this. None of the other main characters have the same amount of detail put into their stories.
Someone who would do anything to show her life had meaning and climb her way to some importance, yet delivered in way that elicited sympathy rather than overall douchebaggery. Which made it more of a shame when her story was abruptly cut off. The other one, Isaku, is a much weaker character, being your run of the mill edgelord psychotic with a fetish for terror.
The two other characters, Iwato and Raika, exist only for the sake of existing if nothing else. As for the remaining three, thankfully, go through some sort of change in personality. The most interesting one was Mahmu the black haired onewho managed to cram her entire character arc in one episode and yet still had it come off as extremely well done. The last two main characters, Sasame and Minashi, have their arcs tied to some spoilery moments, so going into detail would be difficult, Sasame in particular, though on the whole I thought she was a bit weak.
Minashi, contrarily, is the one character I actively disliked, but I feel that was the intent. He was often an off kilter character, and in the second half came repeatedly in conflict with Akashi.
Most of my dislike came from his continued insistence that if everyone were connected nobody would hurt anyone and that Akashi was unintentionally hurting everyone because of that. Thankfully, the last act of the show made it clear that I was meant to dislike him, and he ended up being one of the more interesting characters. The one side I took a real shine to was the main scientist Natsuiri. Since he more often than not explains the fascinating sci fi parts of the show, that could be the main reason why I liked seeing him.
But he was always a blast to watch. The only issue I see with him is his backstory momentarily stumbled in trying to make him sympathetic. It would seem that a lack of proper time allocation was they key flaw with the characters. The dialogue is, thankfully, well written and natural for the most part.

To once again compare to Kiznaiver, the cast was too big and their focus spread too thin. Something like Infinite Ryvius had a massive cast of characters yet nearly all of them felt very human, with the ones with most focuses being some of the most well written in the medium. It takes skill to have a large cast all come off as likeable, a skill M3 sorely lacks. Everything simply felt hollow to me. Like the characters, the animation is a mixed bag on the whole.

Studio Satelight was busy around this time, having just finished Season One of Log Horizon and concurrently developing another obscure mech show in Nobunaga the Fool. As such, the 2D animation is all over the place. They range from genetically appealing to forgettable to the aforementioned Bakugo-ness of Isaku.
Nothing special, yet it works good enough. The background work is also very strong, particularly when it comes to the Lightless Realm.
Yet something about it all seems cheap. Something about how the characters moved and how sometimes their designs would fluctuate depending on distance. Even the backgrounds struggle by the fact that they can get really dark at times. Not dark thematically, like black dark. Ah, but this is a mecha, right? We can overlook drab character design if the mecha are awesome. So, how are they? To answer that question, CG.
They are all CG. Understandably, some are upset about mechs becoming more computer animated compared to the hand drawn goodness of days past. But this is par for the course for Satelight. Their mechs have always been CG, and that experience shows. At the very least the action scenes are well shot and are quite enjoyable to watch.
Wow, girl, you totally took major action there. Black, grey, and more grey. Yeah, he sees the whole gang as children, running away from both Tsugumi and the Corpse. Sasame stole him away? See, the ones who ran away seem realistic to me. His sin of what? Getting scared as a child and running home to his family? Are you serious with me right now? Minashi is delivering his villain speech, but it feels like his voice is going to crack at any moment.
Minashi wants everyone to be one. Finally, Sasame shows up to help Akashi… and she really just says the same thing as him: I thought she was going to morph into a Corpse-like thing too! And what does he get? He gets killed off for no damn reason just because Okada wanted to bring Heito back into the picture.
