Ending was total blah. I expected an intimate scene between Junichi and Kaoru (especially after the buildup with the 'sexy underwear'), but no, Kaoru was a total cocktease and just slept The rest of the episode was underwhelming also, save for some very cute expressions by Kaoru.

Haruka won the ep by default. I'd like to make a wish on that lap

Twintails arc better have tons of Miya to keep me awake...

So assuming at best that they kept it stable and in the end moved closer to that part where the tower was.....this is where they wanted us to go towards to?

I think it was more sudden air missing and thus blackout with a pleasant last smile. Call it "Asphyxiating kiss" thing.

Well even with her weird voice you can't beat her cute side here=>

Besides that she is #2 as first impressions during my first OP seeing of this series. Also Miya has at least 4 avatar parts in this episode alone that I will make once I catch up to the other anime shows.

I was expecting something to happen also with Kaoru in that position, and saying such weird things. But then after a kiss, she immediantly falls asleep and can kill the mood of a majority of viewers

Well I do think so since they are friends, and we usually always see them together whenever the main characters are doing their things.

Ah finally managed to get Kaoru's ED single.. nothing is better than listening to the full version of Kaoru's lovable ED. Can't help but to repeat it again and again while driving.

Kinda surprised that its Oomori Toshiyuki that composed Kaoru's BGM (played during the preview and certain scenes throughout her arc).. obviously love that dude for his awesome composition for School Rumble themes.

overall, pretty mellow arc, which isn't a bad thing. Prefer it over the awkward and kinky Haruka arc.

Sae's arc will be pretty long, huh ... they are starting the route in freakin' summer. A long way for a Christmas ending to be honest.

Slightly disappointed. It was not as sweet or neatly wrapped up as Haruka's ending.

The confession was great, of course. Kaoru's words were touching, neither was waiting for an answer to the confession, just saying the words that needed to be said. I thought the episode was going to continue with this intimate but comfortable mood between them, but then she stays over! (thank god!)

....only to be disappointed. I was hoping for a scene of them in bed the following morning, but that was it.
(would have been better if they cut away after the straddle-kiss... CURSES!) The awkward transition to the brief scene of them walking kinda gives the feeling that they didn't know how to end it. Just didn't live up to the excellent middle part of the episode.

Strange and coincidental was that it came out at the same time as the end of this arc and look at the cover + cd cover itself=>
Spoiler:
it is just amazingly well done. Really glad to have found it.

A nice way to end Kaoru's arc, though I am disappointed we didn't get to a time skip to the future of their relationship. I felt it was not as good as Haruka's arc (could just be because of Haruka), but overall Kaoru's arc was cute and enjoyable.

Need.some.sleep..

Anyway the reason Jun kun been staring at kaoru's thigh - it's rare for him to see her in outside clothes in dress/skirt except for in school uniform.She always wears pants when going out.The reason she always avoid to wear skirt/dress is that she's always end up "accidentaly"showing her panties to her friends in the past esp junichi as explain by kaoru's in this episode...so for junichi seeing her wearing that kinda of clothes is kinda "refreshing"...Notice kaoru's end up wearing pants instead of that light blue dress in her room...

...Thats kaoru's best end with slight differences as usual.I was expecting this show to end with kaoru's riding a bike with junichi..instead they show this in "advertisement" scene blah...i wanna know what kaoru's been whispering to junichi in the anime.Hope they make it up to it by including it in the BD/DVD.That last scene is the future setting where Jun/kaoru's are attending and staying the same college together and junichi's in the athletic club.pressumably she's waiting for him after jun's school club activities...

..and never expected they show Rihoko's overprotective "tea-club" senpais this early.

overall it's quite entertaining watch..so it's a nine for me..

@francismuener - thats manaka Hiba.The most "conservative" and quietest girl in amagami...A "kundere" type i guess

off too sleep...su tired

Ah, so they ran out of time? Fix the flow from the bed scene and add the timeskip to college, this ep would be perfect. They should have trimmed the scenes to set up the date in the beginning, don't need so much of the supporting characters.

Really so I was partially right when I assumed they keep it steady as in they eventually go to same college and such. Junichi in athletic club? Must be a prelude for him to be in the police force but he really needs to get rid of the height fright thing.

Really! O_O She is so nice....wonder if she might be also a yandere if you got on her bad side.....she does remind me of other girls from other animes. Maybe Angel Cop a little.

I see... so the anime adapt different ending for each heroine.

For now, Haruka's Gold ending while Kaoru's is what is it again? I must replay kaoru's route again, seriously.

kaoru's gold ending.

Episode was full of HHHNNNGGGGG and daaaaawwwwww moments, so i'm satisfied. Adorable ending to a fantastic arc. The build up between Jun and Kaoru was fab in my books.

Did find the last minute or so a bit rushed with that fin card, so it's good that it was officially announced on the teams twitter that there will be more added in the DVD/BR released.

Bring on the adorable junior!

Man I didn't think I'd end up liking Kaoru but I guess tomboys can have their cute side too... Episode was way better than I expected, great stuff. Though the ending was a bit abrupt like the last arc haha.

Overall enjoyed the arc. Had some good moments and gave Junichi a few scares along the way. The height was one hit and then the whole worry about getting stood up again even if it was extremely unlikely. Damn falling asleep during a kiss .

I'm not really surprised that the family crisis wasn't a huge part of it. They only had 4 episodes to get these two together and had to focus on the getting them together part. Think they gave it as much focus as they could afford to.

Damn Miya owned Junichi there. Telling him to keep the volume down while he watched some porn .

Yeah nice Santa outfit for Haruka .
