Dun dun dun, it’s the showdown between Alphard and Canaan.
Alphard makes me feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside~
I did get the fight I was hoping for, and it was as awesome as I was hoping. Alphard did end up losing a few points in my book. After engineering the whole thing, her ‘Oh I’m not good enough so I’m going to run away’ stunt didn’t impress much. What sort of true warrior pulls that crap? Well, I suppose one that wants to survive, but still.
Otherwise, the ending was a real disappointment. I wanted a happy lesbian ending with Maria and Canaan, not the whole, ‘we’re not equal and can’t be together’ idea. One word. Lame. We spent an entire series watching their relationship blossom just to get that? Asdfghjkl. It’s as if after they’ve done this farfetched story, they want to send a deep, serious, real to life message to the audience. With the way this series played out, it just didn’t work.
Despite Alphard’s stunt, she did still manage to stay very classy, and somehow, alive. I liked how it was obvious that her past and allowing hate to consume her shape her as a person. I’m not going to sit here and say CANAAN was one of the best series ever, but I think she was definitely one of my favorite villains ever, and these past couple episodes just solidified that for me.
