"Lack of kissing scenes"? Sometimes I have to say I seriously don't understand why people end up thinking that. ^^; I remember how people commented on Frozen Essence that a certain guy's path doesn't have enough romance, when clearly any romance in that path would feel forced and ridiculous as he hated her from the very beginning.
Anyway, I replayed Anon's bad ending for fun, and yes I see what you mean!
Yes, it's officially my favourite ending even though it's so sad.
Firstly, it's because of the conversation between Loil and Anon as you said. I think I ended up not reading it into depth the first time I played it, but now that I'm through with it, I believe it's the conversation where we managed to peel past Loil's outer covering the most. Truly as you said, he's not that different from Anon. The main difference is just that though both of them detest humanity in general, Anon succumbs to self-hatred while Loil attempts to prevent such self-hatred by coining himself as not a mere human, but an overarching observer who surpasses humans. Truly an extraordinary scene.
Secondly, Essi. I have to say that last few quotes are really wonderful(ly sad), when she went "Red. It's red everywhere. Everyone is dead." which directly echoes X's first memory upon seeing everyone die. I like how it implies that Essi herself would end up becoming somebody like Anon - and whether she does or not, we do not know. That's the beauty of it, hurrhurr.
I think I might like that ending even more than the good ending. XD Who knows, maybe if I play it again, the good ending might seem better?
Anyway, I will send you the new scene in a few hours or so. I had a history exam today, so I couldn't do it yesterday. Sorry for the delay.
I just played Anon's bad ending and I really agree with you! I think I even like the bad end more than the happy one...
