**Shuffle!** ends with this episode and (hopefully) so are all the fan wars between KKK,AAA,SSS and etc. Well, until someone makes a sequel or animates **Tick! Tack!**.
The ending really felt quite anticlimatic in a sense. Rin’s self suicide was quite predicted and I’d already spotted it two weeks ago. More to say, it felt…. kinda rushed in a sense.
But well, they used the 2nd half as a chance for normal harem comedy, and suprisingly the focus is on Primula. She has really changed from her beginnings as a emotionless doll to a really funny, cute and sarcastic personality. She’s truly became much more funnier and I’d really like to see more of her :P.I especially love the part where she snuggles up to Rin after he faints from tasting her cooking and also her sarcastic comment, *”Baka oya”* to Maoh and Shin-chan.
The others are not forgotten, especially Itsuki and Mayumi, the *tsukkomi* pair of the series, who never fails to deliver the laughs.The others are just as usual, only still harbouring each other’s feelings for Rin. Ama-san also gets some resolution, with the short part of her bumping into Shin-chan and Maoh, with both of them saying they’d like to apologize to her. Personally, to me, the only serious part of the show.
The ending also had some funny scenes, and some hints too. Primula seems to have lost her poker-face ability, but instead gains some serious firepower. Asa gets her ass-ugly long hair cut by Ama-san, which reminds me of AIR somewhat. And the most unexpected, hints of a blossoming “lily” between Sia and Kaede, with both of them symmetrically docking and sharing some “CPR”.
However, my main gripe for this episode is the art, which IMHO, looks horrible compared to the rest of the series. There were some good points about it though, mainly for the SD parts, but other than that, it really looks all wrong. The eyes, especially, were quite creepy and you can see it in the screenshots below.
In conclusion, a normal ending but not all satisfactory. Much can still be improved in it. Continue on for screencaps.
