“In a ruined world, where most of humanity has been suppressed by giant moe-blobs, there is only one hope left for mankind; the Final Hitode Tsukai, Fuko!”
Okay, this episode really shows the mastery of KyoAni in manipulating the emotions of their viewers. This episode, while mainly happy-go-lucky in tone throughout, had a really downing ending to it, and I can’t really help but feel sad for Fuko at the end. This episode really endeared Fuko to me a lot more than the previous ones and it really showed how sad an existence she is currently. Damn you, Key!
That being said, this episode was mainly very enjoyable, thanks to the antics of everyone, and right before the ending, there was this really warm, fuzzy comfortable feeling I felt from it. Particularly liked Tomoya’s antics, mainly the nose-drinking part and his tsukkomi-ing of everyone’s boke antics, like Sanae’s starfish bread and Fuko going in to her “seal”. Sunohara also provided quite a few laughs, but not the level of his antics previously. Kigurumi Tomoyo was really moe too, when she received Fuko’s starfish sculpture and said she’s taking it this time because it’s handmade.
Not to forget too, Kyou and Ryou appearing in waitress outfit this time but I felt the outfits kinda suck, especially on Kyou. Somehow felt her long hair was very unnatural this episode.
