The journey comes to an end.
I was going to delay this a bit more compared to the other series because of the infamous BONES original ending thing going on and since the final episode’s air date was close to the release date of Volume 11, I wanted to wait out for spoilers before I tackled the anime series in general. Someone was kind enough to link me to a summary of events in Volume 11 so I think I’m ready to talk about Hitsugi no Chaika: Avenging Battle, as well as the series in general.
Massive spoilers ahead but you probably want to know what actually happens.

For the sake of keeping consistency in my series reviews, I’m going to make this quick and review the entire second season once it ends next Wednesday. I’m sad to see Chaika go but I really want to know how this chaos is going to end.
I practically knew this sort of thing would happen but damn, rebirth has never looked so disgusting.

The blood sport begins.
The three teams finally converge where the last few remaining pieces of Emperor Gaz all lead to the Principality of Hartgen and its bloody tournament. I’m still looking forward to one particular scene but I still have my doubts on how they’re going to end this.
Oh well, we’ll find it out how it goes when it happens. I hope for the best.

New developments and objectives are given out.
Before we give in, just a few administrative announcements. Akatsuki no Yona will be reviewed at the end of the season along with Fate. While my nationalism points me to cover it, I don’t trust reverse harem series since Arcana Famiglia. Then again, that was an adaptation.
Like I feared, it seems that our heroes’ journeys finally begins again at the end of this episode. This leaves us with only 8 more episodes to conclude the journey but at least they set up some exposition already for not 2 but 3 groups of characters. So let’s not waste anytime and get into this week’s Chaika.

Approximately a month ago, I sparked a conversation with a friend of mine of how tired I was with the “high school” setting situation that’s more or less prevalent in anything that’s airing. While it is a familiar setting and puts aside exposition, I lamented the fact that we don’t have too many shows where it doesn’t have to involve students. I might be cherrypicking but look at series like Dragonar Academy, Akuma no Riddle, and Mahouka. Why does taming dragons, assassinations, and atomic bombs all have to involve a high school setting? Case in point: I wanted something adventurous again. Something around the likes of Slayers. I’m not asking for anything as grand as scale as that but something that involved constantly changing settings and the likes.
My friend replied to me with that a show like that breaking the norms would be liked by the few while shows that continue the ongoing trend of highschool and absolute moe rake in easy cash. Simply put: Why potentially waste good money when we got a completely secure way of getting the most out of an investment?
Then this series showed up.
Plus I seriously regret not covering this.
