This episode would have been sooo much more memorable if she DID kiss Houtarou.
So basically Oreki shows off his deduction skills again by guessing the backstory behind a random school announcement, which he gets rather right but it’s still as impressive as catching a fly with your toes. People do get lucky some times, especially if they have some contextual knowledge.
I mean, Oreki’s deduction was mildly impressive, but it wasn’t like really moving or monumental or BANG! whatever. Weird how some people were all over the episode, especially the “they (almost) kissed ahmaigawdddd!” parts. Still, for a budget-saver episode, this was okay I guess. Much decent than last week’s episode at any rate I guess.
Almost wish the series ended at the school festival arc. Actually, they should have. Then the show would have truly ended on a high note for me.
