My soul is recharged.
Nice ending, and nice episode in general.
I thought the other episodes where a bit better tho this episode didn't gave me the same calming impression as the others did.
None the less i still enjoyed it allot and it does this fit this Anime.
It's a shame this Anime has ended now i would have loved to see more.
The part when Potte figured out the drawing was quite touching~
The whole show was so relaxing, I feel refreshed after watching it, though the last episode wasn't that good as the previous ones.
Anyway, I gave this a 7/10 because of the voice actor of Alicia-san~
I absolutely adored the childhood of Fuu, Kou, Kaoru and Sayomi. It was the most heartwarming of all. Also nice to find out why Fuu was called potte as well as Fuu herself being so cute as a kid. Among Kaoru's pics I liked a lot of them but it was funny how one of them she caught Fuu with a seagull and it looked like she had rabbit ears. I liked that term Shutter Chance hunter as well as Norie's expression in the library at one point.
Loved seeing Riho again and everyone complimenting Fuu's pictures despite she not taking the praise too well. Riho explanation of why she gave up at one point photography and came back to it. The second spot excursion was great but according to the spoiler
Sayomi is a Initial D initiate with her driving, ROFL! She is nuts in driving! Bloody Sunday made me think of U2 anyone else?
Finally it was really unfortunate that Fuu got her ankle twisted but Maestro's help was great and of course some tears of happiness happened to come out from me at the flashback of Kou/Fuu being with their father as well as them finding in the present time the place they were searching for. I know that drawing's rock was not a rock bu more of the father's head. Lovely series! A masterpiece that can rival easily Clannad as much as Kanon 2006 if only it was longer.
The part where Shihomi was telling Potte about her struggles to become a better photographer and how at one point she even disliked photography because she was pushing her self too hard REALLY hit home with me.
Every now and then I go through a period were I push myself too hard to improve my photography skills, when when I don't start improving I grow tired of it. But like with Shihomi, I'd be walking around and suddenly see something I want to take a photo of and am reminded of how much I love photography.
It was relaxing and meaningful, but there was something missing to change me from a vegetated state to actually being drawn into the message. I am in love with things with messages behind them, but i slept through the episodes for the most part.
Essentially it was good, but couldn't wake me up and make me care.
I was really really close to crying too. Such a cute ending. Wasn't expecting the black part in the picture to be her dad. So glad my dad is still alive. You really can't take life for granted. You have to do what you love. :'3
Marow said: I'm not sure what to think. I loved the atmosphere, but the moe really ruined the mood sometimes. 7/10 for me.
Yeah it was really nice and relaxing, had interesting quotes, but I wish the characters could've been more...natural, or less "moe". And the little brother though cute, kind of annoyed me a bit? If she's in her first year of high school, I think her brother should be at least end of primary school or in junior high, but he acts almost like a 5 year old (maybe that's just me). Still, it was a enjoyable series and was calming.
I really like the first episode. It was really relaxing and funny and just a great atmosphere. The following episodes were lacking though. It had a relaxing atmosphere, sure, but the dialogue got boring and Norie Okazaki was just annoying any time kou was in the show.
The last few minutes of the final episode was fantastic and heartwarming. Which makes me wonder how much potential this show had. Oh well, I gave it a 4/10.
I'm sure I'll get around to the proper show sometime. I just hope I don't nearly fall asleep during that like I did here.
