Seems I jumped the gun on my last post, because…
It’s summer break, and you know what that means, right?!
The episode opens up by giving me a real Endless Eight scare, and plays out like that for a little while before settling down on some activities that we didn’t actually see much of in the Endless Eight – the batting cage, and bowling. Finally, we get to the summer festival.
The entire episode Kyon is mulling over how he should interact with Yuki after the “other” Yuki had confessed her feelings to him. Finally, during the fireworks, he tells her that he likes her too. But apparently, the fireworks were so loud she didn’t hear him.
Aside from the initial scare, this was a great episode. First off, I had suggested before that the Endless Eight would have been much better off if it had split it’s focus on all of the different activities, instead of showing us the exact same ones eight times. So it was at least cool to see a little of the batting cage and bowling, although I would have liked to see a scene featuring the fishing tournament too!
The summer festival played out differently, with the one exception being that Haruhi is really good at scooping goldfish in this one too. I thought it was pretty good overall.
For some reason Asahina became enamoured by a blender that can blend anything into dust – even a cellphone! And she ended up buying one. Was a funny little scene.
Technically this was the final episode of Nagato Yuki-chan no Shoushitsu.
Personally, it didn’t feel like much of a conclusion.
But I guess there wasn’t much weight to this series to begin with, so even though the “weight” of Yuki’s confession was lifted when Kyon confessed, it didn’t feel like that big of a deal.
Anyways, there is one more episode that was an OVA released after the anime had finished airing, so I’m going to finish my entire Haruhi watch-through with that.
Until next time,
Thanks for reading.
