I tried not to cry. I really did. But when Azusa herself started crying, then the same thing happened to me, almost like a natural reaction.

The ending was excellent as expected. They managed to fuse together the show's main themes of music and friendship into one song, one performance -- in a way that only KyoAni can. From the various translations of the lyrics I've seen, this song is truly the one song that defines the HTT, their strong bond, and the close friendship that has developed between them over the years. It was not a performance of epic proportions by any means; there was no stage, no roaring crowd, no spotlights. But for them, it probably meant the world. I think if you were to ask any of them five years down the road which performance they most enjoyed during their time in the high school light music club, it would probably be this one.

All in all, a great episode which delivers a satisfying end to what has been for me a truly memorable series. It was a great 24 weeks.
