A lot of this season is about how much you value something, why you value it the way you do, what value means to others, why others may value things differently to you, and if those values can change over time. How far are you willing you go, for something that you value a lot. Reg, Riko and Nanachi make their way deeper down, into Abyss, where the creatures become are even more dangerous than those we've seen in the past. While our friends are resting, Riko's white whistle gets stolen and a strange drawing is left behind. Our friends set out to look for the white whistle, and come across a really strange, but bright-coloured, village, filled with really goofy character. It doesn't take long before our friends find a page from Riko's mom's journal, which Riko clearly wants, but that's when we start to learn about this village and its inhabitant's dark past. I do think there will be a lot of people feeling rather confused when they watch this season, mainly because of how the term value is being used. One moment they're talking about just a currency, but then it gets turned into objects, followed by the characters themselves, and then even feelings. For example, trading a life for an item, is just something we would never consider, but different world with different rules, so it is something you could expect. It was another really enjoyable season, with more excellent world building and even more enjoyable characters. A big chunk of this season is tied to flashbacks, and I think it's handled with a lot of care. Expect a lot of deaths, gore and destruction. The only negative thing I can say about this season is that one of the most important moments didn't feel animated as well as most of the other parts of the season. It wasn't quite slideshow'ish, but it didn't feel like it was meeting the same standard as the rest of the season, which was something that really bothered me at the time. Other than that, another great season, Sosu!
