So we finally get to the end. Kazehaya confesses just before the culture parade, and then they pretty much make it well known to everyone at the afterparty as well as the next day at school, with a lot of people being surprised at the match. Some girls are jealous, but Kurumi actually heads them off, saying there is nothing they can do that will make Kazehaya see them in a better light. And the end, basically.
Really most of these final 3 episodes had to do with the pair starting off their relationship, since Kazehaya confessed in episode 10, and then had to deal with everyone being like “really!?.” I do have to say that Kurumi made herself out to be a much better character in the second season, as she accepted defeat quite gracefully for the most part, even holding other jealous girls back from going after Sawako. I’m sure it will take a while for her to get over Kazehaya since she’s been pining after him for such a long time, and, as she said, it will probably be easier now that the contest is over.
Overall, while I think this season had some pretty sweet moments, especially from the midpoint on, It was really frustrating to begin with, thinking the two were together, only for them to get distant, then confused, then think that the other had rejected them, and all of that. It would have been nice if episode 10 or 11 was about where the second season had started and they went from there, kind of like how a series like His and Her Circumstances was more about the actual relationship unfolding than the trouble of getting into it in the first place. I’ll have total nerdrage if they do a third season and we have to go through all of this yet again.
Actually, I think if they do a third season, on top of watching Kazehaya and Sawako’s relationship progress, it would be nice to see Ryo and Yoshida get together and to have Yano find someone too. Maybe even see Kurumi find someone new. This series ended in a pretty good spot so I can see them leaving it as it is, but I was just saying if they wanted to continue it, that’s what they could do.
Overall, I guess it wasn’t bad. Like I said, I kind of felt like a lot of what happened was redundant with the first season, which annoyed me, but taking that away, this was a pretty good season and series overall.
