Worth crawling for 6 years!
19 May 2010 | by feritcivaSee all my reviews

This was an episode with massive info which made it worth crawling for 6 years as a viewer who is given bits and pieces and tries to get them together.

This was also an episode filled with abstract symbolism that puts everything in its place.

This is the final for me which contains the core message. I don't think any more word can be said upon this one.

And of course it might be a good idea to conclude the story for viewers with linear logic. Possibly last 2 episodes will do that, but will be insignificant compared to 6.14.
