Ho-hum. Wrong on Masuzu winning the contest, but right on Masuzu letting go of her fake personality (even for a little bit) and the show reinforcing that she is the official girlfriend. Why am I not surprsied at all?

Which makes me quite mad about her cockblock in the end. I mean, she already got Eita's love confession, official girlfriend status, and a kiss on Eita's initiative. Did she really have to interrupt Chiwa's 'moment' as well? Like I was, "Go frigging AWAY! You pretty much already won dammit, let Chiwa get HER consolation prize."

Yeah, just kind of miffed that Chiwa's time with Eita was interrupted, when Masuzu/Hime/Ai's 'time to shine' weren't. I dunno, just wasn't fair at all. Now that I think about it, I'm actually absolutely fuming right now... and Chiwa isn't my favourite girl either. >_>

Oh well, at least Ai got her 'marriage certificate' signed, and her reaction after is the reason why I love that girl so much. Which I guess is only fair because they frigging cut out her Pageant time, when I was so stoked for more air time of Kayano.

Just missed Kayano Ai's stellar performance that, as this thread has shown, is so frigging awesome that it made people jump ship.

Ever since Ai-chan joined this show picked up and got a whole lot more entertaining. Real shame that it has to end at this point when it just started to get good.

So the final episode is here.
That swimsuit contest sure served a higher purpose.
Flashbacks were really nice as well.
The girls were especially all over Eita this time.
Masuzu was such a stubborn girl with lots of walls around her.
Looks like Eita finally broke through her defenses and insecurities.
Nice final episode.

Oh god, Pink won so hard this final episode. Pink, why are you so cute

Although, Masuzu snuggling on Eita in Yurarin voice was very deadly as well

Not sure what the viewership or pre-sales are like, but it's a solid middle-populariity show on 2channel, not up with Love Live (125,000 posts), Tamako Market (80,000), and Vividred (75,000), but in the same range as Maoyu, with almost 30,000 posts.

Good show. EDIT: ...no matter what these other jaded old commenters think, lol. All four girls were well played and interesting characters, for me. I mean, this is a harem comedy, not a noitaminA drama. A couple of comments reveal again the danger of reading the source material. Never read the whole thing if you can avoid it. The only show I know that lived up to its source was Honey & Clover, which for most of its run followed the manga almost frame for frame...and that wouldn't work for a lot of shows.

Ah. I didn't liked how they removed Eita's monologue in the end, where he realizes that he has absolutely no way out of the Shuraba da!

They also didn't allocated enough time to explain the importance of Monyo Monyo and it's practical applications



..... Something tells me that the extra domestic release episode is also going to have Kaori in a swimming suit.

Well that simply awful. Even by harem show standards, this was particularly bad. The attempts to humanize Masuzu's character over the course of this show fell remarkably flat. It was more amusing when she was simply a mean hearted girl who was trolling out cast. Just a complete failure at evoking any sort of empathy from me, and in the end the drama was just silly.

2/10 for the show.

I think you are missing the point of this episode. I also felt no empathy for Silver and all of her drama bits, but I still enjoyed her presense very much in this episode along with everybody else. I don't think this episode's focus was Masuzu and her teenage issues but it was rather Eita's shuraba dilema. And I love how they panned the attentions to all the cast equally to show how it is like to be in the "shuraba" route.

Furthermore, I don't think you should try to empathize with Masuzu when the girl herself admits she is a horrible bitch and should be left rotten and die. She didn't seek Eita's empathy when saying those words to me.

Just to clarify, I'm in Pink's ship, not Silver's btw

Not just that, Masuzu's antics were practically halved throughout the series...... Her phone messages were some of the funniest stuff in the story; which I think was not present in the anime at all.

Strangely, there was no real original content (other than the condensations) except for the swimsuit shopping, which was rather unexpected given what was said during a previous interview. I guess there was a possibility of not having the swimsuit shopping and to decrease v1's adaptation to do a little more justice to Hime and Mana in volume 2. But seeing how the swimsuit shopping was done not too badly, probably scoring heavily with Ai fans, it might not be a bad strategy to sell the anime.

The abrupt ending could have been done better (yes, with Eita's monologue).

Not too sure what to make of it, just don't really feel too good about the manner of presentation overall (save for Ai's antics, which did feel different when animated and voiced ). Not really sure whether I actually want a 2nd season of the anime :/

Wow, first half with the contest was sappy as hell.
Also I HATE the random crowd commentary about how a girl looks like a doll or how cute she is. I didn't mind it as much before, but its starting to annoy me. Maybe because to me, its just filler noise.

How come the crowd didn't notice like almost half the contestants was for one guy. Expected them to throw things at him.

Poor Chiwa Dang you Musuzu, you thieving cat.

Musuzu going all dere on Eita in the morning was good though.
I think Chiwa still has a chance....girlfriend isn't wife!

I really liked Chiwa's last line.
Spoiler for chiwa:

well a childhood friend is not a wife too. that means it is Ai's win this time.if you are talking about husband and wife actually in the anime they made Masuzu a boring character. ı was a fan of her when I read manga and LN yet ı didn't get the same feeling in the anime except for some moments. Main female characters tend to be annoying in animes but they shouldn't waste a character like Masuzu

Good final episode. No way was Eita going to have a mayhem route and avoid the dreaded harem scenario going into the future. No matter what he could have said or done, the girls like him too much to completely back away. So his aunt's idea had no real chance of working. Ai still wants to marry him, Hime just loves Eita period, Chiwa can't fathom leaving Eita totally alone and Musuzu seems to be leaving the anti-love philosophy behind.

Until next time, it was fun.

Well, I was already aware that they were going to cut a good chunk of content, so I wasn't surprised by that. I was kinda surprised that they touched the monyo monyo but didn't give it the grandiose definition that it deserves (isn't basically Masuzu's life support? )

Also "In light blue pajamas", whoa. So I wasn't the only one who was grieving about the clothes changes (white swimming suit Masuzu > Black one). The only one that truly found totally punishable by court martial was Mana. In the segment that was animated in episode 12, Mana didn't had that boyish look in the novel, but a rather Masuzu-like dress (similar to the one she is wearing in the last scene of EP 13). The fact that Mana might dress like Masuzu can easily help establish the (at that point unknown) siscon character.

No. What Eita was trying to prevent was the shuraba route because the harem was impossible (he wasn't interested on it in the first place). Not ditching the girls only leaves him with the Shuraba route, he lost his chance of an harem when he got closer to Masuzu (and thus, prompted everyone else to take action). As Saeko mentioned, the harem there needed harmony and there it was no way to achieve harmony since everyone wanted to compete over him .

Technically he could have gotten the girls to hate him if he turns into a total ass for a good period of time, but it's obviously impossible due to his character (easily hinted on how he couldn't even face Ai when he considered the possibility of doing something bad to her).

Ai was planning on turning the marriage certificate when they graduate, so they still have 3 years left before it's public. Also there is no way that the city hall would accept that "childhood promise" type paper (they don't have DNA detectors )
