I LOVED IT. Amazing episode to conclude the Arc... I loved how Fumika matured inside and outside the episode, and they gave some hints about the pairings too. I pray for a second season plix plox.

9/10 for me since it keeped the series quality

This is a MUCH better ending than the series' wtf ending. I mean, the series didn't even off this conclusion feeling. I'm very happy for the OVA because it felt like this series has reached a conclusion. Of course, it's also nice to see what happened to those bullies ^^

Thanks, person who gave me this on another site a long time ago, lol.

Me too ^_^ BUT I still wonder what is REALLY done about bullying in Japan cause last I heard it is a BIG PROBLEM still as you can see in this OVA and previous episodes of this series.

Fabulous episode, I still wonder how I could give only 9 to the series, it really deserved a 10 since the character design, music and direction are so perfect (Tatsuo Sato is probably the most underrated anime director ever, he's done masterpieces such as Nadesico, Stellvia or Shigofumi and no one actually knows his name...).

This was a very interesting and truly meaningful add to the series (contrary to 95% of the OVAs and special episodes released after the end of the series, even the best ones). I really loved it and I must say I should watch the first 12 episodes of the main series a second time now just to make sure if it deserves a 9 or a 10 ;)

In every age, in every place, the deeds of men remain the same.

Yup, finally an OVA that's actually just as good as the original series. I love the dark and original aspects of this anime the most, in addition to the atmospheric soundtrack, but I think some of the humor kind of disrupts the mood and could have been omitted.

Still great and underrated, nonetheless.

Awesome episode.

It's until now that I really see that Fumi and Mika look similar. Mail deliverer cosplay was cute, Mika agreed.

Ah all the good Shigofumi memories are rushing back to me =D

I completely forgot how good the soundtrack was.
I'm glad that the bullies had at least some justice exacted back on them.

And seriously angel, what's up with you and wanting to kill anything that's remotely bad. It's really scaring me.

Well I do hunt evil spirits in real life so it MAKES SENSE for me to think like that. :P So if you need a evil spirit to be killed ask me.....;)

Don't be preoccupied in my real life jobs just THINK OF ME as a wise man...euh no more nor no less.

If they make one they better conclude the whole father case.....the love arc of Fumika and that friend of Natuska. Also I want to see more of that other world where there like a million of these Aaron staffs.

Good thing it wasn't a lolrecap.

Bad thing was that it took me a while to recognise the characters X-x

Beautiful follow-up to the original series. Glad to see it wasn't a fanservice episode, or anything silly, but like an epilogue, and that's why I quite enjoyed it.

It was good but somehow lacking something. I don't know, I just didn't feel it. As good as later episodes of TV series, but personally I find first part of the story better. Maybe I was just expecting to much. 7/10 but still love this series ;]

See, I preferred this series when it was more of a collection of unconnected stories about peoples loss, kinda like a dark Kino's journey. The later Mika/Fumika storyline just never did it for me in the way those earlier episodes did.

That said, this episode provided a nice conclusion to the series as well as tying up a few loose ends.

However, after an epilogue like that, I wouldnt hold my breath for a second series...

I completely forgot there was going to be a ova/extra episode, finding out sure made my day :D
although now i have to go through the sadness of having the series finish all over again but it was worth it.

This is definitely one of the better episodes of the series. Fumi, Mika, and Chiaki are absolutely adorable. I feel kind of cheated that Chiaki's staff got more screentime than her though >_>

Now I feel sad knowing there'll be no more...oh well, at least it was a happy ending

Me too. I forgot happened events in last episodes.
I always prefer sad endings, but that ending was nice. ^^ Good for Fumi-chan.

Chiaki rules.

I want a 2nd season :(

As the ending credits rolled, I realized... That's it. No more Shigofumi, ever, and a little hole doesn't seem like it will ever be filled inside me again :<... Gonna miss Shigofumi.

Good little episode with a nice conclusion. 7/10

Haha, the second half totally made up for that somewhat boring fist half of this episode. I was afraid it might be a boring episode after the 10 first mins, but it turned out to be great. The meeting during the moonshine was beautiful. Gotta love Shigofumi.

Good episode. I enjoyed how it ended. It left me with a complete-ish feeling about the series. I'm glad that Fumi-chan made a friend.

Great epilogue I guess. Its great to see the bullies suffer, but I kind of wanted them to be in more pain rather than just fear. Also, I was hoping they would leave a conclusive ending for all the characters involved in the show, but I guess this worked too. I really wanted them to confirm Natsuka x Kaname but that didn't happen.

They did imply Fumika x Fumika so I'm happy. The only incest that's wincest is selfcest.

Very good OVA. I liked how it reincorporated some of the other stories and characters back into this one. I felt like the original series wrapped up nicely, so this is just a bonus.

"How much do you love yourself?" lolz Great line.

Made up for a slightly weak ending of season 1.
Good to see that Fumi made a friend and is getting better^^

Atonement through enduring bullying? I suppose self-deception is something Fumi would do, with her naivete and being the weaker half of Fumika's dichotomy. The rest of the episode was fine, but someone needs to beat some sense into Fumi, again. The unpopularity of this show is unfortunate; I would have loved to see more self-contained episodes of Shigofumi, especially with Fumika's relatively subpar story out of the way.

So Fumika goes to school coz she feels like she deserves the bullying because of what she did to her that (that was actually blame), she is such a good girl to sacrifice herself like that, I am happy that she got a friend and to see them all.
