To steal a few words from the heroine up top, I’m so happy that this manga got turned into an anime. While it’s nowhere near the point of the manga where it gets really interesting, it’s doing well for itself so far. And with certain hints dropped throughout the last episode, you can hope for a third season. Then again, third seasons are rare and I’m not sure if I’d rather get a third season of To Aru Majutsu no Index or this show. But let’s get to the episode then the series review, shall we?

As far as final episodes go, and judging from what happened last season, it was a no-brainer to expect something along the lines of this week’s episode. Still, it was an enjoyable affair, yet also one that wouldn’t have been bad to skip. It had no intrinsic value, really, besides revealing to the viewer the various heroines that are to come. For you see, the whole episode centers on Keima’s gaming tendencies and his new-found love with a new character, suitably called Yokkyun (pictured above).
I laughed my butt off when I saw this scene; the two of them just couldn’t see eye to eye. But I’ll admit, I skimmed over this episode so fast that I barely picked up on the important parts this time around. Not to worry though, this is an animu blog, not some encyclopedia with summaries, is it? What? You thought it was…? Well, shit.
There is barely any plot in this episode, to be honest. The only semblance of plot that I recognized was the development where a giant squid was approaching the beach. At this point, the little boy, Yohei, gets all pumped up because he remembers that his dad hunted the squid some time ago and he’s determined to help his dad in any way he can, even if he’s dead. At least, that’s what I have from what I’ve gathered. Read the rest of this entry
