12 Days of Anime X-Mas Shit – Day 5 – Book of DEATHtorra
Plenty of anime series have awesome death scenes, but I don’t think a single series has had as many awesome deaths as Book of Bantorra.
Noloty: Dies valiantly trying to prove that her pacifist ideals are relevant in the world. In a twisted manner, despite her ideals causing massive destruction, her ideals are proven to be of value.
Volken: Dies pathetically as he believes he’s revealed a massive secret about the Library. Turns out that he’s just as duped as everyone else and dies realizing that his ideals were for naught.
Colio: Sacrifices himself to kill a major Church villain, and in death he defies everything that’s known about death in the universe by uniting with the soul of a dead hero, effectively spitting in the eye of all of the rules made by the god-like beings that created the world.
Hamyuts: Sacrifices herself so that she can enter the main bad guy’s mind/soul/whatever and destroy him from within, all while sacrificing herself again to defeat the destructive god-like being controlling him.
Nevermind the fact that many seemingly important characters die incredibly quickly and without warning, showing that life is cheap and harsh in Bantorra’s world.
Bantorra knows how to play up death better than any anime series I’ve ever seen.
