Inu x Boku SS 12

Inu x Boku SS

Awwwww, that was a nice ending…. NOT!

I’m not so okay with Ririchiyo and Miketsukami going out now due to the many ick factors involved, but who am I kidding? This is still a semi-shoujo manga adaptation after all and there are certain things with the genre I should learn to accept already. Still, I found it hilarious he let him discover his little shrine at the end there…

Otherwise this was a lot more fun show to watch than I expected due to the strong supporting cast. Of course, Kana-tan’s Karuta was absolutely adorable with her “my-pace” antics plus that goddamn cute ending she sung for the show. Then there was of course the zaniness that Kagerou brought in with his “S or M” categorization that truly spiced up the show when it needed. The rest of the residents of Maison de Ayakashi also each had their spotlight too, but still those two were the best.

Inu x Boku SS is a nice enjoyable watch, especially if you don’t like too much melodrama. Plus it has equal opportunity fanservice as well! Well, the manga is still ongoing, but at a pretty glacial pace. Given the Blu-ray sales, I’m not surprised to see a second season down the road in a year or two’s time.

Basically the entire episode summed up right there.

Set in a non-romantic end, basically every girl in the series gets their onsen fanservice quotient served in this episode. Not such a bad thing too since we got to see funny shit like Ayatsuji and Kaoru teaming up to form the Hinyuu alliance, Miya ferociously enjoying Sae’s “islands” and Maya-sensei trying to be young again. Even Risa appeared in the episode too, but I still want her to have her own one as well. One of the funniest part would be Hibiki going with Jessica and Haruka to the baths and making this very apt comment…

Two Harukas would definitely kill me.

This culminated with Miya buying “Abstinence” bath salts for Nii-nii, which ended up being a little too powerful in use. A Junichi that doesn’t think about sex most of the time? Say it ain’t soooooo!!!

Overall, a fun end to an okay continuation to the series. I didn’t really like the earlier episodes too much, but the Kaoru arc proved to be turning point of the series and everything after that just got progressively better. I guess that this should be all there is to the series and hopefully it will be laid to rest in peace now :). Maybe do Photo Kano next www

( ゚∀゚)アハハ八八ノヽノヽノヽノ \ / \/ \ THAT HAT. Seriously, DAT HAT!

Well, that was a pretty mellow ending. The drama felt pretty dragged out too, but really, the only reason to watch Papakiki for me nowadays is the presence of Raika-san. Definitely was such a surprise when Yuuta “proposed” to her out of nowhere…

I WANT TO BELIEVE…

… too bad it was just for cheering up Hina. Ah well.

Now… to wait for that Raika spinoff animation project announcement. I WANT TO BELIEVE….

DAT PONCHOOOOO!!!

Oh man, where do I even start with this episode? First, Remon’s van morphed in to a half-mecha fighter capable of going toe to toe with the rescue boats. Then Rinon taking on one of those by itself again with Rinna. After that, the Inao train station… the second confession… MIB saving the rest of the cast…. Mizuho Onee-chan’s voice playing over the memories of unearthed from within Lake Kizaki. Holy crap, this final episode was pretty eventful.

Still, the best really was how they pulled off the final ending, with Remon revealed to be part of the MIB (yes, the one from the movies!) and then the film showing at the school festival, with Ichika wearing the poncho. I was so fully prepared for a bittersweet ending up through the ending with the MIB and everything… then the final part plays out and I’m like, “Oh damn, that poncho… THAT PONCHOOOO”. Hahaha really nice touch there. Almost similar to Toradora’s ending even, in fact.

Well, it was definitely a very satisfying conclusion to the series. Only gripe I had is that until the end, I really did not feel too much for the relationship between Kaito and Ichika, mainly because it felt… predetermined? Instead on the other hand, the drama surrounding the both of them, i.e Kanna, Mio and Tetsurou, really became the most engaging part of the show for me, next to Remon-senpai.

The MIB twist with Remon at this episode too was pretty awesome, but I admit I’m still conflicted whether it was genius or just massive trolling. For one, it feels rather sudden to be revealed in the final episode, but yet I guess there’s been hints being thrown around during the show. Still, it would’ve been much more awesome if it was teased that Remon = Ichigo in the credits instead of the MIB connection. I’ll say that but I don’t mind getting a visit from Agent R anytime!

Of course, the real troll/tease has had to be with the message from Ichika’s ancestor. I guess we did get Mizuho in the final episode, but it definitely wasn’t in the way I expected it to be! Nevertheless, it does seem to serve to establish that this is a totally different continuity from the original Onegai series since we all know how that turned out. Still, I’m glad we got the shoutout :D

Ah… sure hope to see more Nagai-Kuroda partnership. Bringing back the Onegai series at this juncture might not be possible, but maybe another one with Remon-senpai in it?

Moving on with the endings spree…. Gintama, you nasty bastards. Putting in fucking barf jokes in the final episode. Just when I thought they were past that…

Keep on staying the same, you fuckers. And I can’t wait for the Kintama arc to open the next season of the show.

Shakugan no Shana Final 24

Shakugan no Shana Final

Well, that settles the lovers quarrel. Turns out Yuuji had the biggest ever inferiority complex which led him to manipulate a God and a entire race of human-eating monsters in to creating a New World where everyone can live peacefully together… oh wait, that was actually a good thing wasn’t it? At least it wasn’t some bullshit “I killed you Flame Hazes and Tomogara so that you don’t kill yourselves by fighting each other to the death” etc etc.

Still, for a series that has spanned seven years, this was not bad of an ending. Even more amazing when I realise I’ve covered this show from the start of my blogging and so many things have happened in between… I can’t help but to feel old orz.

But I digress, really. I’m happy nearly everyone got a happy ending for themselves, even for Sydonay and Hecate. Plus Yukari-san came back! I’m glad that seven years of fandom has been thoroughly rewarded with this ending, plus it was accompanied by really nice action-packed season, although it did stumble quite a bit at parts. Just too bad some publishing company isn’t utilizing the English license to the Shana novels to its potential.

Well, have a happy new life in the new world, you two!

Well, that one heck of a revival after all the epic sacrifices. You better kick Fine’s ass real hard, Hibiki.

And why so meta, twintail?

FYUNERU END BEST END.

Man, I find it hilarious the robot helper gets like the best ending of the cast. A wife and three kids? Damn man, damn.

I’m just glad the ending was done quite conclusively, wrapping up most of the loose ends. Sure, the death toll was probably lower than I liked, but ah well, it was a pretty crazy world filled with crazy people. Some people deserve second chances. Even if it’s going to be a life of normalcy and foreveraloneliness.

EDIT:

<Hitman66> shu hasn’t reach 5000 war assets yet
<Hitman66> that’s why he can’t save inori
