    Great episode and a good end to the series. Saya's fatalistic outlook is challanged by both Kai and Hagi. Of all the subtext in Blood+, redemption is the one most striking to me. And for Saya, the final redemption is not the defeat of Diva...that was merely the goal of the overarching mission...her redemption lays in the choice she makes to endure...and to allow Diva's children to endure. She knows not what the future holds, other than her impending sleep, but whatever future that may be, she will live it on her own terms. And for me, that is a powerful message. The dialogue was a bit different in english and although it has been several months since I have seen the Japanese orginal, I came away with a slightly different take. The parting of Saya and Hagi was sad to see again, but the rose at the end give rise to hope and even Kai articulates the significants with his closing words. It was sad too to see Kai carrying Saya's slumbering body up the stairs to the Miagusku tomb, tears steaming down his face. But that image is soon replaced with the happy girly voices of Diva's children several years later. Another powerful message from a sociological stand point: where as Saya and Diva were raised a world apart in the same household, Diva's children are raised together by a loving father figure, and the snap-shot of their happiness again hints at hope for the future.moreless

    *Spoilers*

    At the end of Blood + what happens is that instead of Saya killing herself and the babies she spares them and Saya decides to live a new life so then Hagi battles the last Chiropteran and defeats him and then Hagi decides to die so then what happens is that Saya decides to live a new life so she gives Kai the job of watching over the babies so then Saya travels on a ride with this woman to live a new life thus ends Blood +. It was so sad to see another good anime end so fast farewell Blood + I will always remember you.moreless
