Little Rika saying how much she loves Hanyuu is the part that keeps making me tear up and current Rika's expression as she listens to Hanyuu tell her younger to hang in there before they see her off. And another favorite scene of mine in here was flashbacks with her and Hanyuu together. I love seeing Hanyuu be like a mother to Rika...

A lot of beautiful scenery shots in this episode too!

A very touching episode. Epecially the part where it showed Hinamizawa in different seasons. I kinda wish they had made an episode where we could see it in the spring or maybe the winter. At first I had though Hanyuu had somehow gone back in time after seeing smaller Rika and we would get also get to see youger versions of Satoko, Mion, and Shion. But they took it in a different direction and it worked out well.

And did anyone notice that Hanyuu was missing her horns?

Well, they're not exactly... missing. The design is supposed be like they're hidden with her hair. Hiding it with the hair buns looks like it works better, but not so much with the hat.

I really thought that this was quite sweet. Baby Rika saying how much she loves Hanyuu, and how she wants to return to her own Hinamizawa. The ending reminded me of Saigoroshi-hen, but I don't know... sweeter. I liked the sequence of the returning of Baby Rika, and when Hanyuu and Rika tell Baby Rika to hang in there... my eyes didn't water, but I completely agree with anyone who did.

It was a nice ending to the series, a great way to celebrate ten years and a final goodbye to Hinamizawa.

On an aside:
Did anyone else get an Umineko vibe from the part with how Rika and Keiichi come up with how to find the shrine? I'm certain there's an epitaph hint in there somewhere :heh:

Well that was sort of like saying a long good bye to a friend.

The art was terrible, imo. Child-Rika looked like a yukkuri.
Besides that, a touching story. I felt sorry for Child-Rika, being sent back to a 100 years of misforune.
