we will honestly have to see what will happen with eiji next week, though tbh the series could have ended right then and there if yuki decided to give in. rina gets touya, yuki gets eiji and everyone is happy, and the other people get cut off lol.

in any case he called the police right after yuki ran away from him, i think that strongly signifies he's done. up to that point all he had left was yuki and remember how he said he wanted to prevent any 'damage' to yuki or something along those lines, well guess what, he just put a huge dent in her heart.

Well, that's too bad for Yayoi then. I was hoping they would reveal the truth behind her mindset and her past and why she was sticking with Touya despite not having any further "official" reason to.

I guess part of what I said earlier of this series being a 13 hour marketing campaign for the PS3 game is true then. If someone like me wanted to find the truth behind Yayoi's story, I'd have no recourse but to learn Japanese, buy a PS3 and then buy the White Album game. Anime series are made to make money, after all.

Ugh. BIG BOO for this series, pretending to have something deep in its story and yet all we get is that Touya is a scary woman-hunting-freakazoid and all the women are whacked in the head. And most of the guys either die literally or figuratively or get demoralized again and again. And we still don't see the reasoning or the payoff behind it.

Great atmosphere, great production no doubt, but I'm not really feeling the 'it' factor of the story at this point.

Full Moon o Sagashite is like a giant compared to this midget.

Looks like this really is one big promo for the game.

I don't see everything resolved in the end. Poor Rina though.

I want to have a closure next weekend! Even Touya holding Rina's hands at the end is enough!

Gotta say, I never hated this show until they did what they did to Rina. Totally unnecessary.

By the way, a random production note: It looks as though Nagoya TV will be broadcasting the final episode at the same time as they broadcast episode 25 as sort of "double feature", and that will be on Thursday morning at 3:24am JST (episode 25 will start at 2:54am). So people who are waiting for the last episode may be able to see it a bit early in some cases (normally the first-airing station is Saturdays at 1:30am JST).

Rina totally got drama-fied. Even though the director has said before that they weren't going to rely on cheap drama trickery to advance the story, and yet we saw a hailstorm worth of them the last 5 episodes..

The cheap drama tricks i've seen haven't advanced the story though. It's been the odd approach the series has that advances the story.

Interesting post. Personally, I have more sympathy for Touya now than I ever did before. All his tricks have left him empty.

Rina is the least of my own personal interests here -- she is boringly normal, compared to the people around her -- but I agree that the show is well-written, and well storyboarded and directed: not to be a show like other shows, but to be a very unusual show with fascinatingly odd rhythms.

I agree with Shiroth that it is the show's unusual approach that makes it special. The melodrama is so sudden/extreme that I don't exactly take it seriously, and yet it somehow has its effect on me anyway. People who don't like the strangeness have a right to think the show is bad, however.

Rina is too normal to be interesting to me in the bizarre context of this show, but her conversations with Kanzaki are brilliant, the most direct and honest parts of the show. Kanzaki has turned out to be one of my favorite characters now: not that I like her, just that she is so full and real.

I am honestly glad to be as patient to wait for the subs before watching the episode.
Let's see...
Spoiler for ep 25:


No matter what others say, I think this was a pretty good episode. The signs are still mixed about whom he's going to choose. Also cunningly they thought out a method to keep Rina's chances without much of a romantical development. Also it's quite commentable how Rina kept his composure despite the situation...though to mention the analogy again Sheryl was like that too. Only because of Alto's emotional outbreak she let out her true feelings. A thing which Touya obviously didn't do. I am kind of excited about the next episode. It might turns out to be better than I expected.

Also I can understand the negative reactions of others. Without knowing exactly the conversations the episode seems kind of dull. That's why I am glad to watch this episde with subs.

True. Which is all the reason why I wonder why they resort to the soap opera tropes. A lot of the characters just gets whacked around and there's really nothing to show for it.

Lots of revelations this time around, along with Touya's mental babbling. Glad I waited on the subs also.

Spoiler for page 25:


Only one more ep to go, and I have no idea what's in store...but one thing's for sure, this is easily my top pick for this season. It's going to take a massively unexpected plot twist to derail this ending, and with the show already being unpredictable as is, anything could happen.

Needless to say, I can't wait

Poor Rina ...
Lol , Menou and Touya should have "done that" .

I feel that the end will be rushed or not ...
Cuz , we don't know more about Yayoi's past .
Fat guy ... well you know ...
Is it really finish between Misaki with Akira ?
Haruka ?
Mana ?
Menou and the little girl ?

Well , Touya will stay with Rina then they'll take the opportunity for bing bang or not ->
