Delicious Kagami-san end card by 左
Wow, what a curveball of an ending. Starting with random fanservice, the disembowelment of Tama and a random 8-bit scene, this was a pretty trippy ending all said.
Still, that being said, it didn’t really mask the fact the ending was pretty generic and rushed, to conclude the Arahabaki plot which just amounted to little girl trying to take over the world but failing. I guess it makes more sense if you know the myths of Arahabaki.
Ah, but the best part of the ending is finally having a proper version of the ED sung! Man, I was sure they were gonna continue to troll us all until the end and only put the proper ED as a BD special or on the OST… thankfully we got to listen to that beautiful Asumin singing finally!
Overall, Sasami-san@Ganbaranai wasn’t really anything groundbreaking or interesting. I do like how close SHAFT managed to emulate Hidari’s style, and certain parts of the story really did pull some shocks, but somehow in the end, it didn’t really establish a good rapport with the audience or made me feel like caring. SHAFT can be all over the place at times…
