As plot-less as Arakawa may be, I can't say that this series isn't a lot of fun. Would've liked to see a less obvious finale in the battle besides Maria and Sister, with Maria likely winning. Oh well, just hoping next episode will be worth it.
Rather nice episode with full of Pico expressions. I though it would more about the rocket to Venus but looks like that will be for another season. WTF was up with putting instead a game to find out who will have their decree accepted by all of Arakawa? I will admit the fights were nice and funny.
For example Sister/Stella VS Maria, Mayor VS Samurai (now that was EPIC! Amazing balloon popping!) and my favorite one is Piko VS Mayor! Simply because Mayor though Piko got some secret technique while in reality she loved the Mayor, although her hoe was quite the danger apart from Samurai's sword. Among other things Maria/Stella decree was obviously evil, a nice moment of fan service from Jacqueline's breast when Piko pushed her, Billy saving Whitey and Galaxy style a la Street Fighter intro was epic! Also does anyone get Berserk vibes from the following pic?

shuffleair said: Wow. The ending catch was done by Arina Tanemura. So that's what Arakawa would have looked like if it was a shoujo. I wonder who will draw the last episode? 8D
If I recall correctly from some of SHAFT's other series, they usually have the author of the original manga draw the picture for the last episode of each season.
Arina Tanemura's drawing of Ric and Nino was beautiful. Anyone got a screencap of that?
Fantastic episode. References to Berserk, Ashita Joe and Gurren Laggan.
Billy is so smooth. No wonder Catherine loves him.
And I was surprised that Maria was English too. There had been no mention of her nationality before.
