While trying to find screen caps to use for the Top 10 article, I came across this one from episode 10:
My memory might be wrong, but didn't the blond get her head ripped off and die early in the series? Is this screen cap from a flashback or did she get brought back to life? I've always heard that this show is dark but it would be a major turn off to me if they pulled a Mai-Hime where all of this dark stuff and death happens but near the end everything bad gets completely undone and all of the meaningful sacrifices and sad deaths are erased or lessened by none of it being permanent.
Is this the case?
