GOSICK – 24 (END)

「死神の肩越しに永遠をみる」 (Shinigami no Katagoshi ni Eien o Miru)
“Looking at Eternity over the Grim Reaper’s Shoulder”

This was a finale that played it straight. It quickly tied up all its remaining loose ends, set the stage for the timeskip, and ended it with the classic “and they lived happily ever after.” After a little thought, I think that’s satisfactory enough.

GOSICK – 23

「灰染めのチェスにチェックメイトを告げる」 (Hai-zome no Chesu ni Chekkumeito o Tsugeru)
“Call Checkmate on an Ash-Colored Chessboard”

Wow. That was rushed.

GOSICK – 22

「クリスマス・キャロルは窓辺の幸いを飾る」 (Kurisumasu Kyaroru wa Madobe no Saiwai o Kazaru)
“A Christmas Carol Decorates the Windowsill’s Happiness”

The inevitable separation expected to occur last time unexpectedly occurs this week, with nary a mystery in sight.

GOSICK – 21

「聖夜の鐘は刻を追いたてる」 (Seiya no Kane wa Koku o Oitateru)
“The Bells of Christmas Eve Toll at the Heels of Time”

It was rather genius and slightly baffling that a part of the answer to the mystery had been shown to the audience for years as a play, and no one had any idea.

GOSICK – 20

「ファントムの幽霊に導かれる」 (Fantomu no Yūrei ni Michibika Reru)
“Guided by the Phantom’s Ghost”

After what cruelty the Marquis proved he was capable of last week, I was thinking Victorique might be in some similar levels of pain herself, but everything went better than expected.

GOSICK – 19

「薔薇色の人生は新雪に埋もれる」 (Barairo no Jinsei wa Shinsetsu ni Uzumoreru)
“The Rose Colored Life is Buried Under Fresh Snow”

I have to say, this episode was pretty difficult to watch. If not just hearing the blood-curdling screams of Cordelia, but the implications of her situation was not exactly what I had in mind.

GOSICK – 18

「漆黒の列車はいくつかの嘘を運ぶ」 (Shikkoku no Ressha wa Ikutsu ka no Uso o Hakobu)
“The Jet-Black Train Carries Several Lies”

Well, now that this whole arc has ended, I suppose it’s time to gather the facts again before we head into the final few arcs. So after reviewing THE ENTIRE SERIES, I’ve attempted to piece together the “chaos” that is GOSICK, so hopefully this may prove enlightening.

GOSICK – 17

「螺旋の迷宮にその箱はねむる」 (Rasen no Meikyū ni Sono Hako wa Nemuru)
“The Box Lies in the Spiral Labyrinth”

Well that was breathtaking.

GOSICK – 16

「落下させるマリアは蠅の頭をもつ」 (Rakka Saseru Maria wa Hae no Atama o Motsu)
“The Toppled Maria Has the Head of a Fly”

The occult versus science? Hmm, I guess the show does meet the requirement of one loli.

GOSICK – 15

「二匹の怪物は心をかよわせる」 (Nihiki no Kaibutsu wa Kokoro o Kayowaseru)
“Two Little Monsters Have a Heart-to-Heart”

Well, at least I was right on one part. Dude was African alright.

GOSICK – 14

「意地悪フリルは屁こきいもりを糾弾する」 (Ijiwaru Furiru wa Hekokiimori o Kyūdan Suru)
“A Malicious Frill Denounces a Farting Newt”

Avril’s increased presence in the show definitely makes things interesting, thanks to her persistence to be a worthwhile rival.

GOSICK – 13

「愚者は己の代弁者を指名する」 (Gusha wa Onore no Daiben-sha o Shimei Suru)
“Only a Fool Would Appoint Himself as His Own Lawyer”

It sucks that Avril’s such a charming character, because despite the fact that there doesn’t appear to be a serious reason for her to like Kujou, the power of fate will never let it happen, literally.

「夏の午後に蝉(せみ)の声を聞く」 (Natsu no Gogo ni Semi no Koe o Kiku)
“The Voices of Cicadas are Heard on Summer Afternoons”

So is this going to be another typical epi-HNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGGG

GOSICK – 11

「そのドリルは雄弁に愛を語る」 (Sono Doriru wa Yūben ni Ai o Kataru)
“The Drill Speaks Eloquently of Love”

When the cast is already quite charming themselves, a focus on character relationships and their histories prove to be a much better “mystery” than the actual ones so far. In this case, it’s centered around Grevil, Jacqueline, and Victorique.

GOSICK – 10

「風邪(かぜ)ひきは頑固な友人の夢をみる」 (Kaze Hiki wa Gankona Yūjin no Yume o Miru)
“Girl With a Cold Dreams of Her Stubborn Friend”

The mystery turned out to be a rather normal one by the genre’s standards, but made up for it with the continual uncloaking of Victorique’s dark past.
