Are you kidding us, Ne0;lation!? Is chapter 19—a great chapter, by the way—really the end of the series? This week’s chapter begins with the conclusion of the battle to save our viral video wannabe from her kidnappers. Daigo acts as the main distraction to allow Yuko to save Chinami but ends up leaving behind Daigo in the process. While the girls are saved by our monk from the racing arc, Daigo realizes that ne0 is actually in the office as well and has been to help his team from a literal nearby location. As the team escapes, they unleash a fake video—as the real one was destroyed—of the mayor meeting with the mafia-like villain and our team laughs as their victory is set in stone. Meanwhile Gevaudan and his henchmen—who we only see by face but don’t know by name—laugh as they feel like a challenge has finally arrived to them. As the team walks on showing they will indeed take down crime together, the final page reveals a shocking reveal...The End! Say it isn’t so, Ne0;lation. Well, despite the series possibly being over—we will keep you readers out there posted—let us discuss the pros and obvious con about this awesome and potentially series ending chapter.
1. Our Team is Invincible
While ne0’s team might seem quite random and unusual, they sure as hell pulled off a dangerous mission without a single issue. How well they performed shows how strong the team is and how they can handle themselves individually in dangerous situations. Maybe Yuko might lack the intellect of ne0 and maybe Daigo is a bit overly reliant on his fists, but with ne0 in command, the team is sure to win in the end. There is no “I” in team after all right?
2. Our Enemy Appears!
Up until now, we’ve only seen Gevaudan and a few other members of his organization. Chapter 19 briefly shows that he has not just a few but several members and they all look to be quite...dangerous. We can only imagine a battle ensuing between ne0 and the other enemies and how that could go, but unfortunately, here is where ne0;lation chapter 19 runs into its biggest issue. When we say “issue,” by the way, we mean truly a big issue!
1. The End!?!?
If this is really the end of Ne0;lation, then we feel our finale was a true slap in the face. We get this epic enemy reveal, the team showing their skills and a proclamation to end all bad in Japan...then the series ends?! Maybe this isn’t the end of Ne0;lation for real, but for now...it looks like this fun series with a lot of potential has fallen to the unfortunate fate of being finished way too early.
Ne0;lation chapter 19 can be described by comparing it to a firework. There’s the big explosion of possible things to come, but then—with extreme speed—the series reveals it’s over and done with. We can’t confirm yet if Ne0;lation is truly complete, but we will say if it is...it will be sadly missed. What did you think Ne0;lation chapter 19 and possibly the whole series?
