The full version is finally here, and it's 7 minutes of beautiful music.


Well, time to stop looping the TV version and start looping this one.

...hoooooooooooly crap. When she sings, the clouds are parted and the sun shines brightly upon us all. That voice...is not just angelic, it's godly.

Why is this series so good?

and...*sob*...why didn't they write one more first phrase on each verse of that ending song...*sob*...them silly idiots...*sob*...

I saw this episode last night and I still have tears in my eyes.

Well, damn, I didn't expect IdolM@STER to make me cry.


I didn't either, but episode 7 already did that.

Then comes episode 20...

Mau-Kun said:
I knew this episode would make me cry, but I didn't expect this much, I LOVED IT!!!


Yeah.

I knew shit was going to hit the fan, and it was only a question of how hard. It it the fan hard. And the dramatic recovery was...absolutely glorious to behold.

Tears were shed for this episode. The music here is just...beautiful.

Problem was the beginning was slow and a lot different from what its become. Many people simply rated it low and left the series before it got better, hence a lot of low scores are stuck in there that probably won't be changed unless people hear it being talked about and decide to give it a second chance.


I'll keep this in mind. I'll rate it high; this series has delivered far more than I expected of it.

250th Vote for 5/5.

This episode took a few hours, a re-watch, and a critical de-construction with resident Chihayafag, Don_Don_Kun to sink in. Truly a SSSSS-rank (how many Ss did Nanoha franchise use?) episode. I have not encountered something this moving in a very long time.

Chihaya wasn't much of a character until this episode.. sadly I felt annoyed with her most of the time.
When her past came out during this episode I couldn't help feeling so much, I shed so many tears seeing her as a little girl, and that f***ing shoe! oh my god! I'm sniffling just thinking about it at her feet on the stage, and they all appear to sing around her and .. it's so wonderful!

5/5!!

Very nice episode, I'm glad Chihaya can smile and sing again since she is one of my favourite idols.
Her voice is just too beautiful, it was such a heartwarming moment when she started to sing <3 That moment made such a big impact, one of the best scenes of anime I know :)

Pretty powerful episode, I must say. One of the best so far. Good character development for both Chihaya and Haruka. Promise was also a really nice song.

That fucking Kuroi. Judging from the preview he is up to something again. I hope he dies in a fucking fire.
I'm happy though that the guys from Jupiter aren't really all that bad. They are starting to know how insane Kuroi really is. I have a feeling they might quit, I hope they do so.

Best episode of these series, probably. Pretty amazing how far this anime can go if it really tried. It was so well done I almost cried. I think this just raised my overall score for Idolm@ster by 2 points, which is a lot in my terms of raiting.

Beautiful, just beautiful. 5/5.

Also, my Yuri goggles were going haywire with Chihaya x Haru OTP, so bonus points for that! 6/5.

Looking at all these comments, I almost feel inhuman for not even thinking about the notion of crying during the whole episode. At first I was a tad bit disappointed that they muffled over some details in the episode (how the hell was an 8 year old expected to magically save her brother from the force of a car? This isn't edward cullen bull****...) but then I realized that all of these stories are done in single episodes, so I think they did a great job with the drama.

IMO, the ending could have had much more impact if Chihaya didn't just sing two sentences.

4/5. Gomenasai! Sorry to combo-break again.

PS: I feel slightly annoyed at the fact that the fore-shadowing events before this episode only accomplished the "removal" Chihaya from a scene.
PS.S: Isn't it slightly off-putting to be carrying such a freaking large phone in your pocket? I realize that it was meant to convey her sense of anti-sociality, but... nevermind.

Damn amazing episode, Chihaya is the spotlight in this. Those moments of her brother in an accident... pretty hard for her. But Haruka manage to cheer her up on the feelings of smiling and her brother. That was a beautiful song at the end for Chihaya.

I don't think any words of praise can do this episode or the emotions I felt watching this justice. I don't exactly have nerves of steel, but usually anime only makes my eyes water up at best. This is the first time in at least 5 months that I've actually felt tears flowing down my face and unable to say a word without giving in completely and bawling.

This was more than just a tearjerker. Chihaya had only continued singing as a means of atonement because she felt guilty for Yuu's death. She wasn't putting her heart and soul into it before, and it was her duty instead of her dream. Being faced with everything on stage, however, and seeing how she was supported by the others, she finally was able to shine and put her heart into melody for the first time since she sang for her brother. Maybe even more so than ever before. The moment Chihaya began to sing was just so incredible, I could feel her raw emotions being put into it, both her body and soul were speaking volumes through that moment.

Also a shout-out to Haruka, she's always been by Chihaya's side throughout this series and played a fundamental role in bringing Chihaya back. I think no one else would have been able to do it, and when she rushed on stage for Chihaya just proves that she's the one who's been looking out for Chihaya the most.

A truly masterful episode, I just wish I hadn't been given expectations of an emotional episode beforehand. I'm sure it would have left an even greater impact then. Still, beautiful nevertheless.
