Along with ALL THAT WATER she probably also had sake. Bits of Sake + HUEG WATER + small loli = drunk loli.

You can get sick from simply drinking too much water, which is what Yuuka did. IIRC a woman died last year from water intoxication, after she was given a diet which required drinking absurd amounts of water.

Yeah, but I didn't know you act like when your drunk when you get water poisoning.

Water poisoning is very serious. Don't drink more then 4 liters of water a day. If you sweat a lot, be sure to also take some minerals.

It's pretty obvious that Kyupi is just fanservice.

I like the major increase in humanoid-Gekka screentime, and at least at the last moment KKN remembered to have some semblance of a plot. Other than that... meh.

If thats what shes supposed to be her personality does an excellent job of ruining her purpose...

Ah well atleast theres Gekka...I was afraid she was going to be stuck being a Dues Ex Machina for the entire show.

I notice that most people who hate this show hate Kyouka... she really does carry the show.

I doubt I'd find a SINGLE person who thinks Kyouka would be "a redeeming feature to a flawed show". Not a one.

That being said Kyouka is so crazy I can't help but laugh and like her.

This is sorta how I feel... except for her laugh... I'll never like that.

The last subs have appeared. Thanks to SS-Eclipse for doing a great job on this series. Had to be one of the more difficult shows in the Spring season.

I found the end to be touching, and it had some good little moments throughout. The one that comes to mind is Kyouka's three or four successive flying kicks launched against Hyouka, Teika and whoever else.

Overall, I found this show to, at least, always provide something interesting to watch. Loved the voice cast, and find it a bit of a disappointment that the character song CD had to be cancelled. So much lost there. I did like how all the little elements - Mujakky, Pierre, Milcatopy, Hyouka's love interest - returned throughout the series. It was a fun ride.

Finally, an amusing little picture to bridge the gap between Kyouran's closure and this season's beginning.

Kyouka Deluxe!

KKN was clearly the toughest job we ever tackled. Alot of hard work for the translator (machine gun style talking), timer (many, many instances of multiple talk at the same time), editor (hard fight to shorten the subs without losing the details, in order to make them readable) and typesetter (lots of wack signs). It also didn't help to have one typesetter retire due to father duties and another to retire completely, with the remaining one completely overloaded with all shows plus university exams. Which is why we had no choice but to prioritize and let KKN fall behind while one translator and me started to learn AFX from scratch.

I liked the conclusion. The final Gekka/Gouyokuou scene was pretty touching, and there were alot of small nuggest of laughs spread throughout the show. It was also cute to see characters from former arcs return, giving us an idea what happened to them.

In conclusion, it was too uneven to be considered really "good", but it was a solid and relatively unique show which was enjoyable to watch to pass the time.

7.5/10 from me.
