Rainbow 25, 26 [END]
These last two episodes of Rainbow have proven to be at the top tier of quality in terms of plot, storytelling, and animation too. I love this show.
Let’s get to the point already.
I have to say, Turtle’s situation with the whole money for Lily and Nuke-sickness and debt collecting got resolved rather quickly.
In fact, Turtle managed to make the guy pay up by gruesomely biting the man on the ankle. Turtle gets his well-deserved reward, Lily gets a new job working as Mr. Sugi’s maid, and Lilly accepts Turtle as a little brother. The both of them don’t have any family, so why not. It was touching to me anyway. But Mario is already considering going back to boxing, but with that hand… >_>
Quick summary was quick.
Ah, and of course, everything works out for the best on Mario’s end. His right hand gets repaired, he meets Anchan’s mother, he gets into the ring and he wins his fight wearing the shoes that Anchan meant to wear when he stepped into the ring. Mario decided he’d fufill Anchan’s dream for him.
Quick summary was quick.
And of course, Everyone else is doing well too.
Scam/Baremoto/Uncovered (whatever you wanna call him) is studying to become an Ace Attorney
Cabbage is moving up as a Pro Wrestler
Turtle became a money lender and is making tons of money
Soldier joined the JSDF just as he wanted to.
And Anchan became Mario’s phantom sparring partner. Nah, i was kidding on that.
But still, this show ended on a pretty good note, and the survivors of Compound 2, Cell six got a pretty good end.
Sorry about the quick stuffs about the last two episodes above, but i had alot to say about this show.
I thought the show was done quite well. In fact, I disagree when everyone else claims that the show fell flat when Anchan died. That was quite disagree able if you ask me. In fact, i find that pretty baseless. Is it really wrong to focus the show on the other survivors? They’re main characters too last time i checked.
The storytelling was pretty solid, but not without a few flaws here and there.
Only two things that bugged me were
1. the events leading up to Anchan’s death. I mean, i felt like Anchan was so stupid for letting his guard down around Ishihara. I mean, it’s ISHIHARA. He’s had it out for Anchan forever! He’s been treating Anchan so badly and Anchan had the nerve to let his guard down? What a fucking idiot.
2. Mario actually coming to terms with Ishihara’s death. Well, i should say that he came to terms with it rather TOO quickly. I mean, he goes off to kill Ishihara, then decides is isn’t worth killing at that point. Sure, I had no problem with THAT. But suddenly Mario is FINE now. WHY. Ah well, no sense in pondering the unknown, yeah?
One more problem that bugged me about this show is the fact that over half the adults in this show were douchebags. I could go back and count EVERY SINGLE ADULT that i would loathe, but of course, that one bitch from episode twenty, umm… Yuri i think. the one that Baremoto wanted. I HATED HER. And I’d rather not go back on about that.
Ah, ONE MORE THING. I STILL have mixed feelings about Mario sleeping with Setsuko. No one knows how old she is, and really, she was Anchan’s girl first. She’s USED GOODS. I always wanted to say that. XD
guess i had more to say than i thought. Whatever.
The things i DID like about this show, were the (mostly) realism that was portrayed, character development, and the drama that was done pretty well. In fact, i liked this show alot BECAUSE of the Drama. Jun Maeda, Take some fucking lessons from George Abe on writing drama, you fucking troll of a man.
Whelp. That’s pretty much all i gotta say. Then again, I’d recommend this show to people who are looking for a pretty good/decent drama written by someone other than Jun Maeda.
Overall, I really liked Rainbow, even after Anchan’s death. I guess it’s either i’m not that good a critic, i’m not a very critical person, or i’m open minded, or i just don’t give a shit.
thanks for reading my posts on this show, guys.
