Honestly probably my favorite anime ever made. I love its philosophical musings about life, humanity, and the general human condition in its many forms. The complexities of why human beings do things to each other, worship religions, commit horrific genocide, curate readings/censor books, critique art, look at the critique of art, run countries. It's all so fucking good.
This show just really means a lot to me in a lot of very specific ways. It touches certain points of wanderlust within me but also touches a part of my soul in a way that not many works do. It hits deep, especially that last episode. Something about the last episode of this show just...genuinely hurts in a way that not many pieces of media can hit upon well enough.
It's a somber philosophically interesting journey and I love every single second of it.
