I like the way the whole series went and didn't have a problem with all the characters dying and sacrificing themselves. It made the show more touching. Maybe we can all go back and say that this or that doesn't make sense but if your gonna do that then the whole story itself don't make sense. Everything is not suppose to make sense. The story is about love and willingness to sacrifice which to me made the show so great. It didn't follow the story of the game all the way but if it did would the show have been as good as it was? I prefer all the twisted feelings of anger, happiness and sadness for the characters in the show. Anyway point is . . . good show. :D

at the end when Xiaoyao told Ling'er to go/sleep/rest in peace, not only one time but like ten times? anyone beside me though it was pretty rude of him? i understand that he didn't want to see Ling'er in pain, but the way he told it in was very cold hearted of him i think.

NOTE, i watched the canto subbed version.

what i thought was. remember if the 2 pieces were put together, the couple can make a wish but have to sacrifice themselves and become 'birds'? what i thought was that. why didn't they wish that the monster was destroyed instead?

I guess they wanted things to be restored to peace, rather than both 'die' for one monster?

Oh right, I totally forgot that those two things actually grant wishes...Did they actually wish for "peace"? Because that didn't happen until after Ling Er died...

Which kind of means they are the reason for Ling Er's death.
