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.

Things begin to enter its final stages and Hartgen’s plans are revealed.
The moment I’ve been waiting for is, in my hopes, set up at the end of this episode so I just can’t wait to see it. Speaking of that, the series has 2 episodes to close it off and since Hartgen’s plans do coincide with Gaz’s “Resurrection” one way or another, I can see them pull something with that. Either way, they’d have to mess up pretty hard to make me not like the series.

More setting up and the end is in sight, I guess.
The Light novels apparently bring more Chaika’s into the mix and I hear some more fun things with Gaz being a pretty cool guy too. Anyways, I doubt the anime can cover any of those with the 3 episodes left. Still, even if the first season cut a lot of things out, the show’s premise can move around things nice enough to make it still feel a bit coherent.
Anyways, somewhat uneventful and the scene I wanted still hasn’t come yet.

Things begin to pick up as the pieces of Emperor Gaz are beginning to thin and the groups begin to converge on their locations.
Administrative stuff first then: SAO is boring the hell out of me so the current arc will be talked about in a trio-bundle if the last episode next week is decent and if not, I won’t talk about it at all and chug through the next arc. I’m quite busy this weekend if you couldn’t tell but expect Twintails up later and then Bahamut again.
I didn’t expect things to hit the fan that nicely by the end of the episode. It’s not such a plot cliffhangar but rarely do I get the chance to see shipwreck scenes with monsters to boot. We’ve got 7 more to go but at least things are already brewing up by the end of this.
