I'm glad Torg seems to be alright.

I'm also confused. Where are they now?

From the look of it, I'd say this world has gone back to a primitive age after those Anima eaters wrecked the place. A post-post-apocalypse.

When everybody's the same, nobody is special.

My first thought was Yay!Torg is alive!
My second thought was, awww, Trevor is gone...

I suppose, to go along with my previous thoughts, maybe there was evolutionary pressure to suggest against cool looking animal like Trevor.
Little smileys do the job without looking cool enough to be worth collecting.

What-the whaaaat?

I was thinking they moved back in time - Riff's work with the Flux Generator could have aimed for that as a temporary fix. (In that case, just move two hundred years back! They were at the peak of their civilization then.)

But I didn't catch Torg's anima also being round. How interesting that they all now look like Zoë.

I am sad that we didn't get to see the two super anima collectors, though. Like gods, walking the Earth. Or hovering above it. Maybe they were enlightened and noble, having amassed enough anima to reach a higher state of consciousness.

They have also been there long enough for Torg to heal up, and the farmer knew about THIEVES.

Note that Torg is on crutches, which means (1) it hasn't been *that* long, as he isn't completely healed; and (2) since they didn't have crutches when they went ZAPPO, the technology level is apparently high enough for the world to have crutches and there's been enough time for the gang to acquire crutches.

I dunno. Torg suffered some pretty grievous injuries. Trauma like that could take months or years to fully recover from. Torg using crutches doesn't really surprise me.

Nobody else had this thought? Torg is Peter Rabbit now!

Wow -- major reboot. No wonder Pete had scripting headaches!

HOW did they change their animas?

And we should note that, whenever they are (still Anima world, obviously) ... their circumstances aren't as good as they were in the past, if they're down to Peter Rabbiting for food.

Final though...if it's still Sticky Kiki, that farmer is going to regret that grab!

Crutches aren't very high on the technology list. They could have easily made those themselves. And yea, Torg suffered from multiple fractures... in each bone! That definitely takes a whole lotta time.
The fact that Torg IS up and around and all their animas look like Zoe's makes me lean towards dream of some sort.
