It really is frustrating. I am a fan of this series (Wolf's Rain) two years too late, and it seems like everyone else has finished it! I have only just finished the recollection episodes, so I am quite a bit behind. I don't have cable, so I couldn't watch it off of Adult Swim, and I also just found all the fansubs two weeks ago. I have volume 5... so I need to watch that this weekend.
But to go through forums and see all these topics called [Spoiler] Why'd it have to end that way?
and [Spoiler] What happened to Blue?
and various other topics that just keep telling you that it has a bad ending, and I know I am not looking forward to it. I have considered watching it through episode 26 and going "There! That wasn't so bad" but I know that won't be possible for me. My goal is to complete the series before Ushicon, but I wonder if after seeing the last few episodes if I could even make it to work the next day.
If anyone comments, don't talk about the ending or any part of it =P I have had many people offer to tell me how it ends but I'm like "No! Don't! Shut up! SHUT UP NOW!" and so far they've listened. Soon I'll have the series done and won't have to worry about it, but I'll probably need therapy after seeing it all =(I just noticed that my past 5 entries all have at least one pic of Toboe in it, haha =P
