They could've done better at the end of Part B tho. At least the original game explained what happened to the various characters. In this epsiode, the existence of Keiichi and Rena was almost as thin as air. (Rena only has like 1 line in the festival scene in the whole epsiode, if I recall correctly)

I definitely have to agree. With Mion standing up against Okonogi and even Takano... the most we got out of Rena was a "Mion--!" and "Where is Hanyuu? =O??" I believe and for Keiichi was probably a laugh and a few encouraging words. I mean, of course, Keiichi had a huge role throughout the series, and Rena was portrayed as the super-detective in every arc, but to suddenly degrade their characters to where they put them... it's kind of upsetting given Rena is one of my favourite characters.

Rena is a favorite of many...and many are indeed upset.

No mineuchi *coughHimuraKenshincough* action from her this time. xD

Well, the only ending which would satisfy me entirely is one in which both Takano and Rika win. That would have to be choke-full of symbolism though.

A quickie question, since I avoided spoilers for this earlier. Was there anything specific behind "Rena's hat message" in the first arc? Satoko did seem as if she had understood something other than "I'm in danger".

Wow.

I guess my expectations were way too low. Well, considering what DEEN did for the last episode of the first season (I'm saying it was bad, just that it wasn't as epic as it should have been in my opinion), it's understandable, and I feared that the end was going to turn into a huge mess.
Guess it was the opposite.
I loved part B. The art was splendid compared to other episodes. The whole Hanyuu-deflecting-the-bullet scene was very well done. And, of course, the calendar scene, which made me a bit teary.

Good job, Rika. You defeated fate .

Oh, and...
Spoiler for Part C:

Spoiler for piece 52:


Wow, thanks so much for translating that - it makes me feel more comfortable with the concept of a season three, as I felt really skeptical - at least this tid-bit, especially the latter lines, gives us something to connect possible arcs they may animate.

Rena's existance dwindled to almost zero in this epsode. Meh. But Takano was amazing. ;P

Definitely a 10. Unlike in many other stereotypical anime where the "villian" is punished, this epilogue is at another level. Like the card game where the burden of sin is passed on person by person, with one more card, no one becomes a loser. Just like how Takano is forgiven...

It might just be the Raw I have but the subs aren't timed well and are in a very ugly color and the OP is not subbed

It is timed for another raw; one that has the same file name as the ASS file. Apparently it's not as good as Hauu~'s as it contains a number of mistakes. Personally I'll wait for Hauu~; his subs should be out quite soon.

The only issue I have with that is that by resolving the situation in this way, rather than having Rika save her, it makes it seem like Hanyuu wasn't truly willing to sacrifice herself for her friends.
