I'd better stop posting summaries if people are going to form snap judgments from them without actually watching the episode. I liked the episode, myself. My summary isn't that great, and the plot outline is not all there is to the episode.
Spoiler for ep26:
EDIT: Someone gave me negative rep for this post. On balance, I think they were justified. No complaints. I shouldn't form "snap judgments" on what people were basing their judgments on.

I'm not surprised they're having such an ending.

The whole series has riddles all over. Not a straightforward and easy series to grasp and understand.

Have not seen ep 26 yet but was curious to know what the title of the song is in ep 23 and ep 25, Yuki's song, the piano piece. Koiiro Sora?

Spoiler for Page 26.:


I've been giving this show plenty of praise, though most of that started with the second season. I loved the first, though the second is when the true nature of the series started to appear, and it's unique approach at telling a story and handling it's characters shined oh so bright. Truly a brilliant second half to the story. Overall it get's a 9/10 from me.

Now i just hope for a soundtrack release, though i get a feeling that's never going to happen.

Whoa, that was...I don't know. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't disappointed, but I am satisfied at the same time.

Spoiler for Episode 26:

Like Shiroth said, unique all the way to the end. I'd give it a 7/10 since some things were left open or dropped all together (ie: Tamaru) but once I factor in how much fun I had, it goes right up to a 10.

I want to read some R. K. Browning now, lol.

And I am sad this is over, it was so much fun to wait for it then to watch it and then to talk about it.

That's what makes it so great in my opinion. It makes you think and gives you plenty of room to interpret. Its got an artistic feel to it. I'll be watching this again for sure.

And I will return to my duet signature once again since I loved it so much.

Horriblesubs made the wrong subs. They encoded Yumeiro Patisserie's subs into theirs.

EDIT :

Just watched a real version. The ending is really nice IMO. The duet is damned nice......and the Mizuki Nana's vocals are totally off-charts in epicness.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Now that is how you troll your audience. And I mean that in a good way. Bones, KyoAni, you might want to take notes.

Spoiler for final page:


Best show this season, 9/10 overall from me. (if he nailed Menou and Rina it would've been an 11 ) Next season looks utterly boring, so I'm hoping there's another gem like this amidst the sea of crap headed our way.

The things I am disappointed about are:

• The lack of Rina in the second season.
• How Touya's dad's death went practically unnoticed.
• In the second season, how there wasn't enough Rina time.
• Tamaru & Fatso's stuff was dropped and they didn't get the justice they deserved.
• Rina not having the time and development she deserved.

Mana is so cute. She should have gotten a hug at the end though. She has such a huge crush on the jerk too.

Well the story ended in the way that's most sensible I guess. We get no climax in the last episode and our 2 girls acted camly till the very end. Still I would have liked Rina to have a little more screen time and development but I think this is the best you can do to "interwine" all the routes in the game, introduce all the girls and get them to a good enough closure without neglecting the main rivalry. BUT my Rina still get shafted a bit. Porr Rina.

Menou was fascinating though, I'd love to hear her voice more.

8.5 for the 2nd season!

I find her cute when she called Menou onee-chan for the first time in the entire series while the latter was trolling her about "Touya-kun". If Touya chose her route, he could have gotten two for the price of one, then effectively minus-ing off their mother via means of a heart attack.

I don't think Mana realised that she has fallen in love with Touya until after the exams. All the while she thought she has been trying to play cupid between Yuki and that guy, but instead, fell for Touya.

What I really like about how everything turned out is :

1. Eiji actually did not give up on finding his goddess, even going as far to fly off in search of that picture right after his release. Behind all that politicking and competition with Kanzaki, he isn't just a heartless marketeer hellbent on making money. He had a wish.

2. Kanzaki turned herself over to the police as she was the one who sold the paintings to Eiji. I think the reason why she got released is because she got the arts through personal sources and there is no credible evidence against her. Secondly, she patched up her broken family, after being enlightened after this farce that, she only provided for her daughters' material needs, but never their emotional needs. Looks like she retired for good.

3. Mana reconciled with her mother and sister, despite her "it is not like I wanted to..." facade. How much more cuteness can you ask from a tsundere other than that final pout at Touya? Her final act of looking out of the window back at Touya is an act of admittance of her feelings for that guy as she is going to miss him for the days to come.

OT : Although, there MIGHT be a high possibility that she married someone by the name of Nakano and had a daughter who is just as cute.....

EDIT :

Albums to be released on New Year's Day!

Yuki : 恋色空~Koi Irosora (Love-stained Sky) & 悲しみよ、こんにちは~Kanashimiyo, Konnichiha(Sorrow, Today)

Rina : Powder Snow & 1986年のマリリン~1986 nenno Maririn (Marilyn Of Year 1986)

Rina's 2nd track....is her "Marilyn" referring to Marilyn Monroe?

well that was really underwhelming, didn't get my school days ending =( though i do applaud them for wrapping up all those stories in 1 episode (at the cost of rina/yuki time)

i also applaud yayoi for being a good sport, properly passing on messages

first time i've ever seen someone get a medal for peeing in their pants. i mean really? lol i know they're kids but still.

man, i always had a hunch that bitch haruka was trouble.

I really admire how they left Yuki & Rina's plotlines alone and open at the end. They could have really half assed them and closed each one off but they didn't. Plenty was left open for the viewer and the fact that they were the only two girls who didn't have a clean cut meant something all together as well.

Brilliant.

Nah. She totally liked the guy since they were in high school together. She only wanted a tutor from a specific school, the one where Touya graduated from, and she kept throwing out all of the tutors until she found him. And even though she decided to take a test where no math was needed (not that she even needed help to begin with) she still kept him as her tutor.

That was a strange way to reward someone but Yuki was a little kid. And Haruka was only keep Touya to herself, again, she was a little kid.

Touya is only three years older than Mana (20 and 17). So it was a freshman's crush on a senior.

Ok finally watch the last episode .

Wow , what an end ! I mean , some things aren't resolved yet ...
Oh well , it was great as usual .
So , Touya's past was that . Ow , it was Haruka !
Well , finally it was resolved ... but omg the end with no Yuki ? i mean , she waited for him but i wanted to see her expressions about his cheating .
Mana and Menou together with mom
So , Touya x Yuki ending ?

Give it 8/10 . But still unclear .
