.... goes a little Seinfeld but loses none of its charm. Seeing this episode on its own is not recommended, but if you have watched (been mesmerized by) the first 24 you will enjoy seeing the writers flex their muscles as they tie up some loose ends and take a McLuhanesque turn where they remind the viewer that he/she is really the entertainment, the substance, not the content of the series. (Watch the last 10 seconds, and you will get that).
In spite of this, or perhaps because of it, this series remains not only one of the best animes of all time but has a love story within that will stand for the Ages. Truthfully before penning this review I read some other reviews by "professional" anime writers and they were just as gob-smacked as I.
While this episode lacks the EXTRAORDINARY punch of episodes 20-24, it is essentially a clinic in writing and animation from one of the best production teams on the planet.
