With the bar set really low after the idol arc, the ending wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. A couple of parts were actually pretty funny. Gentou being in the wrong place at the wrong time and having to endure Akiho's wrath was comical. Also, Shiina's fortune. LOL. Poor girl since next week will never come.

All in all, the series was a major disappointment. It lost the charm that it had in season 1. In return we got lots of cheap fanservice and stupidity (and not the funny kind).

4/10

seriously , can't animes like these make them actually "do it"? Pointless fanservice won't get anywhere

also: Shiina has no real purpose in this anime, she pops up does some stupid jealously "omg I love him so much" blah blah blah and doesn't even do anything worthwhile to remember.

Did Haruka have the ring on her wedding ring finger at the end?
In the End, was it worth it?

I only liked how every character got the same fortune they did the year before. That shows how much this season has progressed, seriously. Otherwise, I'm super happy this show is over. No more please.

Yeah. She did. It even sparkled. We can assume they will get married next and it will be a "secret" wedding. Psh.

Damn, this show just kept lifting expectations (for what it was), only to be a letdown toward the end. Was hoping for some more real developments, but I really enjoyed the series because of the supporting characters, so it was good enough. And I'd watch more of it if there were I guess, because I like those characters. I wouldn't expect much though.

So they didn't kiss even in the last episode?
Then what was the purpose of this second season?
Thank God I stopped watching this shit at the 2nd episode.
I'm dropping it, not gonna waste time.

Super Saiyan Akio was the best part of the episode.

The rest was awful. Horrible second season compared to the fun that was the first one. (I think it's bad when you're favorite character is a stuffed animal. Nelson-kun FTW by the way)

This
was the best of Gentou comedy (around the time Shiina tried to confess to Ayase in the boys room) I have seen with Akiho being good comedy also. Fanservice wise Ryouko breast of fondling of Haruak/Mika was the epic of this episode especially witht Haruka/Mika's reactions here
At least now I know better about Mika's breasts. Found it extremely cheesy that Haruka lost her ring and they showed how important it is to her by making her go alone in the blizzard but Douglas-kun here
was amazing after Nelso-kun. Ping-pong ecchi part was funny with those three guys getting nose bleeds here
. I also liked they brought in all the maids. Haruka/Ayase alone in the shed behind the Inn was quite the romance that failed again because of the sudden rescue at least there was some more skinship.We all hope that Haruka will get married to Ayase in season 3 with this=>The kiss was a kiss....unless this is not close enough to it=>
Other things would be that those guys should feel lucky to be with mature women.....I would be
This might be long but let me guess the ED meanings here: 1.Mika continues to try on Alisitia new women underwears/bras to make her more of woman?

2.Anyone want to tell me why Gento is happy about this creation?

3.Guess Yukari/Ruko continue their drinking around the club places

4.Touka still dreams of Yuuto and likes him....seriously she was the best among all the characters! I loved her character the most of new ones. I laughed hardest at this episode..

5.Looks Shiina is lusting after Yuuto with her body in the shower

6.Ryouko with her friend are still teasing the guys...maybe she will get a boyfriend in the next season?

7.Guess Nobunaga will never stop anime in any season of this serie

8.Maids are still training?

9.Milan still sings strong at the end.
BTW anyone got the the jokes Yukari wanting to play with young guys things and Alicitia being desperate she does not have big breasts like Haruka around the Ping Pong part? This serie gets -1 point due to much ecchi not enough romance like in season 1.

The final battle of fanservice but no #2 maid. This season has made me actually appreciate the first one and a part of me wants to rewatch it.
Maybe season 3 will have one.

Let's hope they make enough money to get rid of the ecchi things in season 3 and make it more romantice like the 1st season. Yes?

If this show had less explicit ecchi, this show would've been e so much better. Haruka and Yuuto's relationship had a lot of appeal. 7/10

Suckage, suckage and more SUCKAGE! I seriously hated Season 2. My gosh, they took everything good Season 1 had and replaced it with fanservice and a terrible-as-heck storyline.
I'm forgetting this Season and imagining it never happened. I'll just stick with Season 1's ending and image that it ended with Haruka and Yuuto being together. :3
Here's hoping for no Season 3. Or at least if there is a Season 3, I want less fanservice. 10 fold. o_-

Urgh, first season was much better. Although the occasional fanserivce is nice now and again, they went overboard with this season.

Lack of a proper kiss at the end though feels like we as a fans have been cheated on, unless they're prepping for a season 3 (which is probably unlikely) then MAYBE we might just see them kiss.

This season was OK on some episodes, but not great on the others. It lost its sense of charm that the first episode had.

Yet another anime RUINED by the dreaded "sequel"

the first season wasn't a masterpiece or all that great, BUT; it had some potential and provided mild enjoyment.

This season was FAIL, plain and simple, there were probably only 1 or 2 episodes that were ok, the rest were bad, REALLY BAD.

I'm very disappointed, it doesn't even make sense anymore, honestly, just let it DIE here, NO MORE STUPID SEQUELS.

It was an alright series. If they were setting up
for a 3 season it was alright but if not it falls short on the ending...

Although the plot was generic as pretty much anything and they always got interrupted with their "kiss" scene, i still liked more episodes then i hated so im giving this one an 8. I really didnt like the idol arc, i thought it was kind of pointless

ill be surprised if this gets a 3rd season

Well they did announce a Nogizaka Haruka Special at the end of the episode so I'm guessing an OVA or possibly a few short episodes will show up two seasons from now. I guess they could make a 3rd season depending on how popular it was in Japan.

As for the ending...I have to say that was probably one of the best episodes out of the second season despite it being a COMPLETE knock off of Toradora. I was actually pleasantly surprised they tried to toss in sex at the end. Sure we knew everyone would brake into the house and mess it all up but at least we got to see Haruka and Yuuto take a step up from being shy around each other.

I liked the Full Metal Panic spoof with the suite Yuuto was wearing lol. Also the NGE and Gundam references.

Ok I will agree with the attempted sex trying and Haruka/Yuuto step up that was a + but why is it a Toradora knock off. I did not see that anime but would like to know why.

Great episode, very nice ending, but it's a shame they've been disturbed in their special moment again ! ^^
Poor Shiina, she didn't have the time to confess properly...
And yeah, it's possible they'll make a third season. I never expected this one, and it came anyway ^^ So let's wait and see until april 2010 :)

This episode was a good "Nogizaka no Haruka" episode; not a good finale.

Well, the final image we saw was the poster with a voice over that the fansub I was watching translated as, "Let's see each other again" or something like that. I personally hope that there will be at least a few OVAs and the producers say: "Eff the source material, we're gonna wrap this shit up NOW." And proceed into an OVA or OVAs that aren't your typical harem, ecchi, beach/hot spring-filled episode(s), but one with a confession and a kiss.

I hope to god there isn't a third season. Because we all know that they'll end up prolonging the inevitable until the very last scene of the 12th episode. If they do end up doing a third season, hopefully they'll break the trend and have them confess within the first five episodes and have a nice, feel good anime to leave a sweet aftertaste, opposed to the bitter one we were given after this season.

They've had 24 episodes to get this done and it still isn't. They don't need another 12 to do the same thing if they aren't going to commit.

Lemme get this straight:
They didn't confess.
They didn't kiss.
BUT they are going to have sex all of a sudden?
Oh yeah, realism ftw!

The overall story had sooo much potiential, first season was okay after all, but this was just a huge waste of time. I would have had more fun, if I had watched the wall of my room.

I know!
I saw that and was taken aback, but for some reason I didn't think they were gonna have sex. Then when they were questioned as to what they were doing and they said, "It's a secret!" I was basically the "orly owl".

This show REALLY pulls out all the clichés one can think of:
- 'Abandoned' shack behind huge lodge
- Haruka's teardrop that just happened to fall right where her ring was
- Shiina confessing to the wrong guy
- A ping pong ball that 'accidentally' winds up between Haruka's boobs (if Yuuto were REALLY bold, he'd get it out for her)

Still, despite this clichéfest, this episode was funny.

So, when can we expect season 3? You just know there's gonna be one.

I laughed out at that scene where I saw Haruka's mom turns into a Super Saiyan. This episode is almost predictable but good. I honestly think the first season is much better due to having less ecchi moments. It's too bad that episode don't have a kissing scene. It is possible this series will have third season because the manga is still going-on in Japan.

LOL the only good part was with Gendou and his wife, when he was alone in the room begging for forgiveness I was laughing so much.
Otherwise the episode was bad, laughed at how cliche it was when Haruka's tear melt the snow where was the ring and that a ray of light (in this freacking tempest, nonetheless) made it shine.
And the interupting of the kiss well, it's not like I was expecting anything.

I see a lot of people complaining about how terrible this episode was, well of course its a Nogizaka Haruka series, frankly you should expect cliche moments, random fan service scenes, and for something to go wrong during any potential romance between Haruka & Yuuto. But this is the reason I watch the series b/c its comedy with some fan service

Though I wonder if they actually did do it....put together the scene in the beginning of the episode and the last scene and they might have....I like to believe they did b/c it would make my rating of the series higher, haha.

That's the problem. Personally, the Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu series is one of my favourite series, but at this rate, that's not going to hapen any time soon in the anime, even if the light novel and manga get there.

I didn't like this episode that much, but I do like the series. I just wish they focused more on her "secret" more, since I don't think everyone in the school knows she likes anime/manga and all that jazz yet.

Oh well, hoping for a season three.
