  3. The Heike Story episode 11 END *Spoilers*
Sirius Reinhart 2 months ago#1
Dunno if anyone else was following this, but it ends with a mass suicide by jumping into the water. I know it's the Heike story, but I would have liked to see Yos***sune jumping the 8 boats at Dannoura.
Speaking of Yos***sune, I found it funny it was Saori Hayami who voiced Taira no Tokuko, since she also voices Ushiwakamaru in Fate Grand Order, that being the young Minamoto no Yos***sune.
Also, just found out the ending lines are the actual starting lines of the novel:
"Gion Shoja no kane no koe,
Shogyo mujo no hibiki ari ;
Sharasoju no hana no iro,
Shosha hissui no kotowari wo arawasu.
Ogoreru mono hisashikarazu,
Tada haru no yo no yume no gotoshi ;
Takeki hito mo tsui ni wa horobinu,
Hitoe ni kaze no mae no chiri ni onaji."

"The sound of the bell of Gionshoja
echoes the impermanence of all things.
The hue of the flowers of the teak tree
declares that they who flourish must be brought low.
Yea, the proud ones are but for a moment,
like an evening dream in springtime.
The mighty are destroyed at the last,
they are but as the dust before the wind."

It was an adaptation of a historical novel that included some fantastical elements in the form of the main character who could see the future with one eye and the spirits of the dead with the other.
Imagine if you will if, say, Shakespeare self inserted into Macbeth as an outsider who witnessed the whole story of the rise and fall of Macbeth and then after all was done, he passed down the story for future generations, and it's more or less the same but with the Tale of the Heike.
Personally, I liked it, but I guess it's not for everyone.
