THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Alice is funny as always. And her eyes when seeing Claude is especially funny.

It seems like Claude is having grudge on the person Alice invited Yune to see because he/she is enemy. He's not in a good mood whenever hearing the name. Yune sensing about the reason behind is probably his father.

Picnic time. lol @ old man doing magic tricks whenever he wants.

And she's got drunk a bit.

Yune's sister's eyes are like Claude's eyes in color, and everyone not liking her eyes. She wants to make her sister better, but she got blinded and became weaker. Yune's blaming herself.

I guess I was wrong about hearing Yune's sister as Maaya Sakamoto. I checked and it was Mamiko Noto...

Someday Yune needs to go back to Japan, so Claude is afraid of knowing about her or telling her about him.

This sawayaka anime will end next ep... Yune's missing again? Or she decides to go back to Japan?

Alice was nice as usual

Poor Yune her wish made her sister blind and weak, oh about that sake didn't Oscar mix some wine with it, no wonder she got drunk.

WTF Oscar magically made a sandwich appear. Claude should have saved some of the stuff he was eating for Yune.

Last episode, oh dear please don't go now Yune, there will be no S2.

Poor Shione, and seeing Yune cry like that made me depressed as well...this anime is too awesome for it to end next episode.
If only the author could make more of the manga in the near future...

Well having blue eyes and be asian is not normal so it's very rare for asians to have.
I got dark brown eyes.

I actually want to see the part where Yune and Claude went to Grand Magasin >_<

The last episode will explain Claude's father's death, I believe

Oscar is the best. Claude obviously needs to learn somethings from him.

What a fucking bitch Yune is, for taking Mamiko Noto's eyes away from her.

There better be a second season though because nothing happened between the Grand Magasin and Gallerie which is a huge disappointment.

Yeah, I wanted more Camille x Claude developments and more about the 2 Gallerie's...

I love the relaxing feel & character analysis that this show has, but I was hoping for a bit more plot. We'll see how it ends.

Still, it's been enjoyable!

Major plot resolution is not possible in only one more episode, I suspect there will be a second season coming up at some point. I assume the manga is still moving forward beyond the point we've reached right?

(Although a last episode where Claude and Camille elope and travel to Japan with Yune, Alice and Oscar would tie up all the loose ends--but I don't think it will be that easy...)
Please don't feed the trolls!

Well, not really.

The manga was discontinued, it only had 2 published volumes, it "ended" at chapter 8. Next episode is the chapter 5, so it means, we will never be able to watch chapter 8 animated, which is, in my sincere opinion, the best Yune x Claude chapter in the whole manga. (veryyyyyy filled with angst and ...feelings XP). They switched many chapters in the anime. Like this, Camille and Claude chapter is chapter 6, while the end of the anime will focus on chapter 5...
As for Camille, i truly love her, but after chapter 6, she doesnt appear anymore, and i doubt she will appear in the anime again.

anyway, overall great show for me, even if it lacks a proper end, it will get a high score from me;)

This episode is a 10/10


Yune's sister is maybe a half-foreigner for having a blue eyes, it's rare to see Asians who have eye color other than brown and black and if there is they're mostly half.

It was sweet and all, but it wasn't what I was hoping for (that's kind of how the whole series's been). I wanted to see more about Claude's father and the Galerie.

I also did want to learn about Yune's sister, but it wasn't what I thought it'd be. I like how she had blue eyes; it was interesting. But other than that, it wasn't much of a backstory. I just didn't like it.

The only thing I really liked was the grandfather's magic tricks. Funny as always. :)

Sweet episode but nothing really happened in the end in terms of drama and development.

It was such a nice and wonderful episode. I am so sad now. Ikoku is supposed to bring me my weekly dose of warm moments of happiness, but this episode made me a bit teary. Poor Yune and Shione. They must have had it hard. :'(

No. She was vision impaired from her birth. I know people who are born with vision impairment having similar eyes to Shione and eventually losing their eyesight completely over time. :(

Oscar is the second most amazing Ojii-san character after John Tousana.

I think I could watch Yune eat a sandwich all day XD

I honestly think I was losing it there for a bit, but this episode was a pleasant reminder of why I absolutely adore this series. So sad that it has to end!

Oh why Yune, why must you be so cute? Her being a bit drunk was the cutest I've ever seen her. On the other hand, her crying and thinking about her blind sister was the most heartbreaking scene I've ever seen of her. I really hope we'll see her return to Japan and take Claude with her. Maybe the last episode?

Well that was a pretty sad episode felt really bad for what happened to Shione.

Wonder how this is going to end with the title being cat on the roof? Hmm I sure am going to miss Alice and Yune, mostly Alice. :p I always thought she would end up going back to Japan but I highly doubt it now.

Oh and what happened to Claude's promise about buying Yune's family kimono back.

Why must you be so useless, Claude?

Next week is going to be great; it was a great chapter in the manga.

Ah, I thought we were gonna have an ep about le Grand Magasin and Claude's father O_O Lol @ drunk Yune ... no clue how her tears could have fallen on Claude's hand though since it was clearly away from her face and above it O_O
Wow her poor sister though ... D; I would say it's a strange coincidence, but that's pretty sad. I don't think Yune should feel guilty though ... magical Oscar saves the day! XD
Wonder how they're gonna end it next episode ... will she leave? :O

I'm guessing Yune's sister had something wrong with her eyes since birth, and that it just took some time for her to slowly go blind because of it? It could explain her uniquely-colored eyes, I suppose. (I don't know what kind of illness this would be called?)

Curious to see how they'll end this series. (Or season?)

Another sweet episode~ Yune got drunk is still cute!

More about Yune's &amp; Shione's past, especially about Shione's eye color &amp; her blindness.

Aww, next episode is the last one. I missed Yune already...

Aww! This episode was filled with cuteness and sadness! Poor Shione. Reminded me of my blind dog... except he has green eyes. why didn't Claude do anything to comfort Yune? - _ - You go Oscar!

(I would do buy a figure of Mahou Yune, Drunk Yune, and Drunk Yune. I feel like France watching Chibiromano...)

Ah, so true =.=

I could really enjoy this anime if it weren't for the grumbling emo. So he's got issues? I think I don't give a damn.

Oscar, on the other hand, is a magical great character.

Kind of disappointed they didn't continue on with the Camille x Claude arc, but I guess its fine. :/

Now I know how Oscar managed to pick up younger women. He really knows what's needed to be said. Claude could learn a thing or two from him.

That was easily the best episode of the series so far.
I hope the last one will beat it!
