Spoiler:

-the way they made it look like things were going as Shiraishi thought it, till you see it's Kuchii whose blade is bloody
-"I can see countless souls of the dead clinging to your arms, I'll be one of them" great dying words
-Kuchii's glad to learn it was the real him fighting by his side, and Shiraishi tells him to save this island before the decapitating blow, honourable traitor enemies, yesss Heart
-she says she's going to toss his head over the walls or hang it at the gate, but she buries it and prays for him to watch over them, interesting
-wondering if he'll find another war after this, she thinks there's no place for him except here - sorry, Princess, there's still going to be wars after this Wink
-gets caught kissing him in his sleep, threatens to kill a child, jeez, worst tsundere ever
-deer crashing down on them like a wave fleeing the army is a cool image
-turtle shell cracks completely and bursts into flames and the fortuneteller drops dead, that's a good omen, right? Uh-oh
-big guy leaves, but I bet he's going to be back, he's not going to get a fight like this anywhere else
-way to spin the omen, magistrate
-the entire island lighting with the Mongols' flames, one by one
-"Kuchii's only interested in war, the man you see is a fake"
-reinforcements already? Seems too easy, they're totally going to be more Mongols
-yup, more Mongols
-That look on his face like getting to fight insanely outnumbered and surrounded on all sides is his lifelong dream

Chio-chan 12

Spoiler:

-were the noises in the intro always so loud?
-really? The only people she can think of to help her with homework are the people who she attacked their asses and then accused of being succubi? Kid's got problems
-the grade-school homework's too hard for Chio Laughing
-Andou's a stalker
-how to earn five bucks, and she immediately goes with child prostitution, holy fuck, Chio, what's wrong with you?!
-the teacher rules out illegal activity but encourages them to start up grey-area businesses Laughing
-"this is a chance to show my dignity as an older woman" Chio, no one is ever going to believe you have any dignity
-and her brilliant answer that she's so smug about is collecting cans for recycling (and she got the idea from the creepy homeless guy, it's not even her own idea Laughing)
-Refusing to admit she said any of it Laughing
-their voices and faces when Manana's threatening to look up her streaming attempts made me crack up
-she looked up "kill streak" and fell down a rabbithole about streaking as protest Laughing
-Yuki's a nudist, why am I not surprised
-important defense against being harassed by normies friend rofl
-"this bitch went all-in with the flattery" Laughing
-"sorry, I'd rather not have one of your kind touching me" rofl Manana's always so ready to stomp Chio down in social climbing
-why does Yuki still have the butler mustache when Chio's imaginging her as a slave?? rofl
-Panties are a symbol of intellect and a binding spell?
-Of course pervert-sempai shows up  Neutral
-Youth > Sports > E-sports?
-Chio just tackles Yuki and carries her away Laughing
-this episode feels like it's kind of just fanservice, they're not really using it for the laughs as much as they usually do
-and then this random bit introducing all the grade-schoolers and their code-names (and wtf, why are the grade-schoolers getting panty shots)
-the outtakes were kind of cute, though

This was a bit of a weak ending to a mostly really strong show

It felt like they just continued adapting material like normal regardless if the show was going to be picked up again or not

Spoiler:

- Getting mouthed off by a shark
- Don't die, kids Sad
- Oh mannnn, her attendant is thinking about killing the Princess just so she won't become a war bride or worse because they're just fucked now
- Holy fuck she either actually killed her or just KO'ed her so the Mongols would leave her alone
- Wow, Jinza making children cry because he's a dick
- And now she's gonna fucking fight him with a stick, kill that shitbag little girl Shiny/thrilled
- And she actually ends up being an early-warning for enemy ninja Nod
- Ah man, he was actually teaching her a lesson that the tree is strategically bad, but then he can't deny her because she actually did protect the tree
- I'll assume the shark got him to shore
- Kid didn't even swing the sword hard enough to slice Jinza
- "It's up to you when your war is over, even at the end of the world."
- "If you don't know how to use a sword, you can't even cut a shirt" and he arcs the blade and a falling leaf slices apart on it, so fucking cool
- "His blood was a brilliant red"
- "No matter what you do with that sword, it'll never point towards victory"
- And he just walks off into the forest and fucking up that general, JINZABUROUUUUUUU
- Ohoooo choked the Princess out
- "Surviving means winning." Shiny/thrilled
- "There were Exiles who fought the Mongols. The temple at Hachiman says this, but no more." What a great end line.

Actually ended up asking reddit about why/how the Mongols were so good at what they did and why they didn't end up being the dominant culture of Asia/Europe, was p. interesting

Also

Spoiler:

Plays a bit nice historically because the Mongols invaded Tsushima again like 7 or 8 years later but this time they were rebuffed. Jinza had time to train his child-soldiers and fortify the weaknesses of the island ;_;>

Spoiler:

-"I can finally see your faces" like he can only care about them once he's seen enough of them die, like the deaths are what makes them visible and real
-"go defend the east wall" and he just steps off the wall and right down into the battle
-you think Teruhi's overpowered and then she stabs a dagger in the guy's neck, not bad, princess
-pulling down the watchtower to seal the gate Nod (also, Tatsu's pretty cute, hope she's not getting this moment of screen-time because she's about to die, but I have a bad feeling about it Lurking/sketchy)
-ohshit, bombs
-Aaaand Tatsu's dead Sad
-the magistrates eyes just physically warped in anger, wtf
-the Mongols are through the gate
-stabbing an enemy soldier and pole-vaulting him over his head like this is some kind of Being Brutally Slaughtered Olympics
-oh shit, they got him too, right in the stomach and vomiting blood, he's dead (is there a three-spear stab event in the Being Brutally Slaughtered Olympics? B/c he's a shoe-in for that Uh-oh)
-even Kuchii can't buy them time now
-Teruhi and Bow guy exchanging fellow archer goodbyes
-Lying about big sis Tatsu dying :/
-the light shining through the trees as they run
-The noble giving Kuchii a respectful title for the first time
-the group of soldiers they're fighting here looks pretty different from the other ones we've seen, they seem to have really put a lot of thought into showing the diversity of the Mongol forces, I kind of wish we got more chance to learn about the different groups.
-Big guy came back! I like the way they first exchange plans for violence, then insults, then essentially 'oh yeah? well you've become a good person, so there!"
-Wait, how does this Mongol know Japanese? Did they actually communicate last time like this? Wasn't there a translator when Shiraishi was betraying the castle? If I'm not misremembering that, it's a little strange to acknowledge the language gap by bringing up translators and then brush over it. Maybe he's Korean? I was assuming from hair colour that he was Mongolian.
-the monk having to balance out the people he's killed by saving these guys, he's gonna die
-he died Sad
-taking on four gunpowder hand-cannioneers with arrows Shiny/thrilled
-that laugh and "like I said, nothing's better than a bo-"
-fighting and falling in silence with only the sound of a single sad voice works every fucking time
-just when Teruhi's about to give up, Kuchii cleaves a Mongol in two
-nooo, he got knocked out of the fight and into the ocean
-the ending music - standing in sunlight, all the characters appearing one by one and the cheerful music sounds somehow sad this time

Finally got to this. Time for a super-happy ending, right? Right??
Spoiler:

-going in there's what, three actual characters (counting Kuchii as alive, and if you count the long-haired guy with the mustache whose name I don't know as a full character) still alive plus a handful of soldiers and the kids?  I'm losing track of who's dead :/ Oh, and maybe the rich old guy, I don't think we've seen him since he and big guy ran into the Mongol reinforcements, so he could be alive, I guess
-that shark
-there goes long-haired guy
-four people plus Kuchii plus the kids
-using the bomb
-shit, there goes the kid, I almost thought he could make it Sad
-wait, it looks like there are 6 or so still alive in Teruhi's group
-the guy filled with arrows, still taking that slow step forward to fight, and then he falls
-holy fuck, ninja-looking girl's strangling Teruhi, what the fuck, you just promised a dying man you'd protect her and then it didn't take you two seconds to abandon hope completely (not that you're wrong to, but still!)
-and there she goes to distract the Mongols, I guess she was just knocking her unconscious so she'd stay hidden, sorry ninja
-Kuchii the asshole father
-that's adorable, she's going to protect the sapling from him. Uh-oh, she's got a stick, he'd better hope she's not trained in Gikei style too Wink
-Making your child stay out all night protecting a sapling is a great early warning system!
-okay, that was a really great flashback-parallel, having him be like "damnit, my kid protected that one spot no matter what for just a tree, even if it's hopeless can I really do any less for this island"
-d-did the shark save him??
-and then coming back to find the battle over, everyone dead
-holy fuck, the kid survived, standing up among a pile of corpses, and he still wants to avenge his father right then and there rofl
-"this is the war you chose, and it's up to you and no one else when that war is over. Even if it's the end of the world."
- there's still some prisoners for him to save!
-someone slaughters a fleeing Mongol soldier, and you think somehow it's reinforcements too late after all, but no, it's their leader
-damn, this was just four days
-wait, now they're saying Kuchii doesn't understand the Mongol leader, I'm so fucking confused what they're doing with the language
-and now they're directly and totally accurately responding to each other, which means even the handwave of "battle is the real language" doesn't really hold up, they've just decided to ignore language when it's not convenient for them
-that final fight between them, and then when he beats him and all the Mongol soldiers stand against him with their spears, and then the rows of archers all pointing dead at him and he just WALKS THE FUCK FORWARD AND THEY FUCKING PART BEFORE HIM STEP BY STEP  Shiny/thrilled
-and he just leaves him alive and walks away
-they managed to bring a little hopeful ending to it, but I'm kind of just thinking "is that even enough people to repopulate and rebuild, let alone be ready to fight again by the time of the next Mongol invasion??" :/
-and then that last line gives you a feeling of "they're telling this story about them like a gravestone to their memory, but the real exiles who fought were never known, this story isn't actually them," simultaneously making them be remembered and not-remembered. Being sad for unknown people knowing it's not exactly them you're sad for, and that in itself is sort of sad.
