Agreed.

By this point i entirely understand that her "tough, heroic, boxing" persona is a masquerade she puts herself to cope with her past and it will be interesting if she can accept herself by what she is and go on with life.

Episode 11 was pretty good, but yeah the climax was a bit lacking, but that was pretty good "Falcon Punch" For the scene of Lizst shocking that guy, it would have been hilarious if he was dressed as Mikoto, in a 4th wall breaking WTF moment, until the reveal.

The pacing broke my neck, figuratively.

Also, it also opens some thoughts in me.

Why did Lizst stop the resolution? It could have ended there, but he decides that the denouement "isn't needed". With all the strength of those favors he could eliminate the only threat in Otogibana. Maybe he doesn't want the conflict to stop?

The Otogi Bank can hold a darker side to it. And I think with a second season, things would turn more serious than it sounds.

So much for the "utopia" that is Otogibana-shi.

The beginning of one episode had already highlighted the fact that Onigashima exists for the sole reason of making Otogi Academy look good, or something to that extent. Otogibana City is indeed a false paradise that gives it's young generation the illusion of freedom. While I do feel Liszt has no intention of outright crushing Onigashima because of it's necessity, his threat to take down Hitsujikai is definitely true. He probably has other things planned to make sure he won't ever cause Onigashima to step beyond the limits of delinquency they're allowed/expected to carry out, as opposed to simply trashing the bastard (though many of us would like to see that).

Such a shame it would be if Ookami-san does not get a second season to delve more into the darker aspects of Otogibana's system. This quite reminds me of Gakuen Alice, which despite it's overall kiddie-ness, also featured a darker side of it's story via the academy's ulterior faction and those who oppose it but in the end never really explored more of that side (in the anime, at least).

I haven't watched the entirety of Gakuen Alice, but Toaru Kagaku no Railgun gives a similar atmosphere and they even share roughly the same setting: a "utopia" run in the background by more shadowy means.

all in all, these last 2 were some nice episodes.
plus there was a good fair amount of Otohime, Majo-chan, Momo-chan, and Reiko goodness, so I'm happy!

now, what else is there to say?.. one more episode to go, and no second season in sight, right?

Good episode. I felt glad for Ryoushi when he finally landed a punch on him. The end was messed up though. I mean, one would think that that situation would take he series to the end of the season. I mean, what are they going to do for episode 12? The pacing was all over the place in this episode. Overall I liked it though.

I was expecting this last episode to be solely Ryouko and Ryoushi.. but it's ok I guess since Ryouko was jealous and at the end, both of them smiling at each other.

Overall an enjoyable, lighthearted (ok not really with the flashbacks of Ryouko) series. Like the way the show infused fairy tales with modern elements. Don't mind a second season

And so we have our conclusion. Better than I thought it would be.

Seemed like a typical open ending to me.

What nags at me is that in ep 12 you get a dark situation that sort of mirrors Ryoko's event with Hitsujikai. The match girl is accepting that she will have to become a prostitute to pay off her father's debts after he skipped town, but the good fellows at the Otogi Bank take care of the whole thing in less than half a day. Ryoko's been friends with the folks at the bank for several months but after 2 abductions, one time with several victims, the good looking villain is still doing whatever he wants? Are we all supposed to chalk this up to Ryoko not opening up? But even Ryoshi got a strong hint when Ryoko had her amnesiatic episode and he reacted like a dead fish compared to what he did ~several minutes after seeing what was happening with the match girl . The loan shark/whorehouse operating gangsters got taken away just like that, but a high schooler who orchestrates kidnappings and probably rapes girls gets the "we'll get you some day" treatment? .

The author requires a swift kick to the ballsack in my opinion.

Oh great, Ringo's certainly the most evil girl of the entire series. "Those bad men suddenly came at me, I was so scared.....". Brilliant.
