Spoiler for Episode 12 of Amagami SS:

U<3Anime 2010-09-16 15:59

Yea, the moment i saw Haruka, I got feeling that Juinichi and Sae wouldn't stand a chance. Haruka+Hibiki combo is too cheap.:p

I didn't mind the narrator before, but I really wished they left him out for this episode. I felt he really spoiled the mood when things were getting warm and fuzzy. I mean my mind I was like, "Enough of your witty remarks, just leave them alone!". Overall, it was a cute arc and I enjoyed it more than Kaoru's arc just because Sae-chan is so moe~ Plus, there was a lot of Miya too, which always brings tons of fun! She had to steal the spotlight one more time at the end too with the chou-kawaii cosplay. :heh:

"Get Chance and Luck!"

Sounded awfully like TK

I've enjoyed each arc so far and this ending was pretty good. I wouldn't call it perfect simply because it lacked any drama. I guess given the nature of the series it's difficult to introduce an serious obstacles to the relationships. The one common thread seems to be Junichi's quirky likes. I won't call them perverted since he doesn't seem to impose himself on any of the girls. In this case, Sae is probably the perfect partner. She probably enjoys these role playing and cosplay sessions as much as Junichi. Therefore all the more power to the happy couple.

Next girl looks like she isn't going to play along.

Yeap its TK's CV Michael Rivas. I didn't bother to check when i saw the name on the cast list during the ending credits, but its definitely TK's CV.

Amazing! Truely Superb Sae!
 
This episode was terrific and made for me Sae being #1. I would find it hard for any girl other than Haruka the way she looked in her wedding gown at the end of her arc to beat Sae. Let me make it a last terrific post for Sae.........
The meaning of Sae
S
For Sexy
(both body, face and skin tone)
A
For Amazing
(character, body and by far shy complexion)
E
For Enchanting
(In regards to character, personality and eyes)
The main reasons of me falling for her with this final episode are based on these nice GIFs:

Originals
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/d768bc0f.gif
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/6357aec9.gif
There you have it! These 2 GIFs mean all of Sae and if I could have seen Sawako whom I fell in love at first sight in Kimi ni Todoke like this it would make me happy but if I did not fall for her as my signature shows then I would have taken in engagement Sae. I would have stolen her from Junichi if I had to! :p I seriously doubt Rihoko will beat Sae the way she was this episode. Anyways in other comments during certain parts of the episode.......Junichi was really well portrayed in depression mode here=>

it really got to me and it was never seen like that before. Now those are all nice cakes but I like most of all cheesecakes just to tell you all! =>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/897fc2cd.jpg
Sae looked rather amazing with her clothing here but Junichi to me looked gay with his color choice....purple? Oh heck no! :eyebrow: =>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/0d22d936.jpg
Holy crap! That is a big parfait! I think it's meant for 4 people if not more. You must be insanely hungry to eat this with 2 people=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/d17a23f9.jpg
Haruka is simply :love: with her green dress and Hibiki is also :love: with her cowboy getup! Simply brilliant and I know no one had a chance against Haruka from this moment. Haruka's flowers on her head are also :love: here=>

Keiko had a rather strange face expression here I thought=>

I think I :heh: over 9000 when Umehara was finger pointing his fish partner here=>

As if that was not enough he actually went with in front of everyone to make it official as his partner in the best couple contest (as if he would win with that other than in a comedy contest :heh: )=>

I think this shows how Hibiki and Haruka really match up here=>

They should have a Yuri wedding already being as they are here=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/dee125b0.jpg :nod:
Nice renders starting with this one of Sae and Junichi=>
Followed by Sae herself=>
Finally of Sae in penguin outfit at the end of the episode=>
Nice movies to select from. I like the Rose Red one here=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/a5cb1c3f.jpg
I am telling you all! This is George Lucas of Steven Spielberg...more like George Lucas look a like. I loved how he talked to Junichi in English! That was a nice part and unique setup right there=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/2b4c889c.jpg
Kind of obvious Junichi was being way too much attention to Sae's ass and thighs here but who could resist that anyways :naughty: and in :love: =>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/226d9de6.jpg
The actress of the movie was splendid! Beauty on its own here=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/09339204.jpg
Loved the Junichi part of him taking a picture with his hands of Sae here=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/30aadf80.jpg
Wow! How bold of Junichi here :eyespin: putting that leg in between Sae's legs...just wow! =>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/c170ea38.jpg
Nice intimate hug there Junichi! Bet you felt those breasts of Sae really good again! :p =>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/1c880edb.jpg
We could all clearly see how Junichi can have a serious look during confession and it was good they did a close up of his face when he does confess he is in love with Sae. It gave a rather better view to me=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/21b63ff4.jpg
Wow! That's nice but too bad they darkened this part! Wish I would see more of this=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/bcd9b17c.jpg
Oh what the heck is this :twitch::uhoh: Junichi's heart presentation?=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/000be03d.jpg
WTH! :twitch::eyebrow: He passed out here!=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/820c063c.jpg
Finally very nice scene of Sae and Junichi with snow falling here=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/05ff4cf5.jpg
So in the end it all went good but these are the different endings of the game for Sae and yes I am :mad: and :upset: and :frustrated: at the authors for not having what I underlined in the best ending done as it would have given a different perspective in Amagami anyways here they are =>
Spoiler:

Episode is 10/10 and deserves this which I did myself at the end of it=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/7cd37007.gif
Looks like it will be Ai Nanasaki's turn=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...4/a7c357ad.jpg
so let's have the club be active of her when it's her arc. I will be posting full size GIFs of her many good things when her arc will start so check that out in the club!

Midonin 2010-09-16 20:04

The moral of the story is that you should always hope to run into Steven Spielberg in the bathroom.

Hooves 2010-09-16 21:21

Just finished episode 12, and this was possibly the best ending I could have ever expected.. Somehow I feel this is 4-5x better then Kaoru and Haruka's arc endings, but that is just me. But still, amazing ending to this wonderful arc of the girl Sae!!

(I love how Sae is announced Francismeunier :heh:)

10/10

Ricky Controversy 2010-09-16 22:08

I give this episode a 10/10 solely because it means there will not be any more of Sae's arc. I generally don't post about stuff I dislike, but this is the first time in a while I have been this annoyed by the content of an anime.

It's not that I dislike the concept. I never dislike concepts, as the value of an idea comes down to how someone executes it. I feel that Sae's arc was poorly executed. Partly, I blame this on the four-episode format which has so far caused more grief than good. I think the whole 'everybody wins' approach is interesting, but condensing entire romantic arcs down to this point? It has made the storytelling awkward, and in Sae's case, she is very in need of a well-constructed growth period, because her starting point is as a very weak character.

If this seems entirely out of left field to you, let's chalk that up to some fundamental differences of taste. Praise for Sae seems largely centered on her moe qualities: for starters, I don't factor that in to my appreciation of a character, and even if I did, Sae's qualities are anti-moe to me. The standard I do use when evaluating a character is how much depth they possess and how well their development is handled. Again, there is a fairly tight limit on how much could happen given that there are four episodes, but still, they managed to make it fairly believable in Kaoru's case. Sae's progression felt very artificial, and so there wasn't really any satisfaction to be had from it.

I also really disliked the version of Junichi we got in this arc. In Kaoru's arc, there were moments of relative wisdom and even some GAR from his end. In this arc, he seems to be driven by a mixture of pity and lust: the intention is obviously different, but we are never actually shown anything else, and thus that is what we have to judge on.

All in all, a very poor arc, and I'm glad that we'll be moving on to a fresh slate next week.

Vexx 2010-09-16 22:47

Somewhat similar feelings as Ricky, though Sae herself was appealing - the version of Junichi was off from all the other Junichi and the storyline itself just felt amateurish.

Lovely moments and lovely Sae but overall seemed to fail against the other two arcs so far.

Hypernova 2010-09-16 23:01

Since the old dude was identified as the director in the ep proper. Why is he credited as 'mysterious guy' in the cast?

Personally this arc doesn't do that much for me. Mostly the due to the narration and Sae doesn't really push my buttons.

serenade_beta 2010-09-16 23:23

Wow... That was the best end so far. The entire arc wasn't that great... But I guess it was the most preferable out of all of the ones so far. Though Sae herself was... Well, the only thing that I noticed about her was her strange voice.

Anyways, the end took everything. I mean, yeah! Cat costume Mya! Mya! Myaaaaa~~~~! 13/10 for that!

And TK... :heh::heh:

ueXia 2010-09-17 00:00

Miya in a neko oufit.
That's it, there goes my 10/10 for the entire arc!

Pocky Yoshi 2010-09-17 00:34

Not bad arc. 8/10. Felt that there could of been more. But the end was worth it.
:meh:Next stop, Ai arc!!!!!:meh:

Haru~ 2010-09-17 01:45

Sae in bride dress MOE DEATH! Sae in gothic lolita dress MOE DEATH x2! And Miya in cat suit made me HNGGGGGGGGG MOE DEATH x3!
100/10 this episode. My body was really not ready.

I personally felt that the first two arcs weren't much to write home about either. I really like Haruka, Sae, and Miya, but I feel they're being used to cover for some really weak scenarios.

I will, however, give the director credit for the bit with the shot of Sae from behind while she's leaning forward while wearing a short skirt and kneesocks... I got a similar view of a Shana cosplayer doing this at a con a couple years back and it is indeed very captivating. (Before you ask, no, she did not lean that far forward, and no, I did not take any pics. Get your mind out of the gutter.)

SageGaiGar 2010-09-17 02:07

1/10 for no slightly older 'Glamourous body' Sae. time-skip *cough*

Decent arc, nice to see how her personality developed by leaps and bounds from the start. 2nd is still my favorite, Still not sure where the 1st and this arc stand in relation to it.

'TK' forever! That was a fun cameo. Sae's moe overload. The 'death' was amusing. Definitely a better flow to the ending atleast.

Maccette 2010-09-17 02:11

I really don't know how i feel about the Sae arc. Sae's character grew on me over time but i just felt the ending was poorly executed, I think the only redeeming factor of the episode was Sae goth moe overload.

Johnny 2010-09-17 03:08

I was hoping Junichi would have stayed dead from his moe death, but no such luck.:( Guess they wanted us to see his creepiness one last time with him videotaping Sae bouncing on his bed in a penguin outfit...:eyebrow: At least they must have heard the viewers and blessed us with a neko Miya...

roankun 2010-09-17 06:29

Well... Thank God it's over.
