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?

… and we finally confirm our suspicions. It’s surprising how shocking it is still to hear it even after more than a decade of anime. Sure scantily-clad is quite regular, but full-on nudists are really quite rare…

Indeed… what’s he going to do? Kaito-kun sure seems relatively calm.

Lesson learned: Never seriously piss off Ichika-san. Poor Rinon…

Quite a funny episode as we learn of the more… impulsive side of Ichika, as the both of them struggle to recover from the awkwardness of last week. Glad to see the sock puppets making a return from Twins www. The shopping malls of Karuizawa doesn’t seem to have changed much from those times too. So many familiar sights, only now in high definition.

Tetsurou’s sister was a fun interruption, but hopefully that will be the last of her. She doesn’t quite fit in to the character chemistry mix of the show… but then maybe that’s the effect they were going for. And it also looks like the past four weeks have merely been the prologue/setup for the show, guess the real drama’s going to start now.

Now, about that random HSotD insert in this episode…. foreshadowing? I know there’s a bit of Kaito zombie jokes floating around.

Yeeaaaaaaaaaahhhhh that’s gonna be awkward. Ichika is just about as dense as Kaito… dense lead x dense heroine = ?? Guess we’ll have to see next week.

And seriously Kaito, stop stomping on yourself so much with your own delusions. Even Rinon felt bad and tried to comfort you. Getting comforted by a UMA is like… I don’t know? Sad-funny?

There was also a rather quick drama moment between Tetsurou and Mio, about him caring a bit too much for Kanna. This love polygon has really started going on early isn’t it?

Also, damn. Remon has a huge e-penis camera.

Ano Natsu de Matteru

She just loves “movies”, doesn’t she?
