Billy rocks! I'm glad this next ep is the last one. This season has not been as great as the first.

This episode was delightfully amusing with the romantic tensions among the cast. It doesn't look like everything will end conclusively next episode, so I'm hoping for a third season or even an OVA.

Man, I really hope there's a third season. This show just can't end with two; it's too damn funny.

Formation A was awesome, but I just loved how Whitey got turned on by the chalkboard lines.

OMG!! Billy is as GAR as it gets!! Aniki!! XD

this episode has lots of the best lol moments this season.. and too bad they didn't finish the fight..

hmm, I really expected this episode to be about something Venus-related as I was hoping for a Venus ending this season, but I feel that it won't go that way now.. but I'm still hoping..

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.

LOL funny episode. I don't want to see Maria lose, but I also want Maria x Sister to be canon. XD

Only one episode left, I hope they make a 3rd season. Or an OVA. Or a movie.

I was amazed at the Ashita no Joe reference.
Just goes to show what kind of impact Joe still has, being referenced in two shows this season (the other being Bakuman).

If it's against Sister, especially in his blood-covered state, Maria totally has victory in the bag. Can't wait to see these titans clash. (Hopefully)

Great episode.

Anyone else notice the kawaii touch of incongruity with Nino's bow tie when she was playing MC for the first round? :P

The king game was hilarious, loved Nino this episode, and Hoshi / Ric were hilarious again :P

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

At the last minute i said, damn this is a slow segment until the ending credits started to roll. Yup, time flys when your having fun. Although it didn't make me laugh at all.

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?

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?

My favorite episode of the season. I loved the Ashita no Joe and the possible Berserk reference.


I doubt Sister can beat Maria but the outcome will definitely be interesting.

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.

very funny episode XD

Nino in announcer outfit is cute!



the brothers eliminated themselves!

and wow Whitey got owned by Billy!!

P-Ko you heartless girl you!!

and wow Ric and Hoshi lost to P-Ko XD

you still have them left P-Ko :P



that was cheap of Sister throwing the cookies to lure away Nino XD

and wow Maria using that secret technique to beat Stella XD


P-Ko vs Mayor is one of the best XD

trying to push each other, i do wonder if Mayor does know P-Ko's feelings :)



i literally burst out laughing when Sister said he wasn't been hit yet all of the psychological damage he sustained, and was looking for Type A or Type O blood transfusion XD



Maria vs Sister left!!

who will be the Arakawa King or Queen? :)



Character Art :)
