Billy was amazing, such a manly guy...bird.

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.

I wish this was 24 episodes!!!!

But I do hope they make a movie of their Venus trip...or an OVA would be nice too.

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 :)

last episode T_____T

This sure was a pretty weird episode and well I do wonder if they actually will go to Venus or at least some more development with Nino in the next and final episode!
