Fun, cute little series. The part where Mikan taps the lead out of her pencil and cries on her test was so sad. Of course in the end it was all a misunderstanding. You'd think Hotaru would know by now the importance of being blatant about things with Mikan. XP

I'm glad they didn't push the romance too much in this show. I mean, seriously, they're like 12 years old. Need to wait for a timeskip or two for anything serious to happen in that department.

My favorite characters were Mikan, Natsume, and the students in the Special Abilities class (like Misaki and Tsubasa).

Kind of good for an ending, but I think I still would have liked it if it'd ended on ep 25. Two parters always good for ending the series.
I reject your reality, and substitute my own.

loved the ending, though part of me did wish hotaru would be leaving the show for like 7 or 8 episodes if there would be a second season, im not completely satisfied with the romance, i at least wanted them to add the kissing scene with luca and natsume to mikan D : but oh well

I have a feeling they made Hotaru leave so hat they can end the anime.. in the manga it is totally different... which really ticks me off --___--

Anywaysss.... they should REALLY make a season 2 and follow the manga. They kinda left us hangin'.

Pretty lovely ending! At first I wasn't expecting much from this anime with the horrible OP it has, I tried starting this anime various times but always just stopped when watching the OP, luckily today I continued and finished marathoning this anime which in the end was pretty lovely, it had some really nice episodes but could've been better in various ways as well! All in all a pretty decent anime! 6/10

It's always disappointing to finish these older shows knowing that this is the end of the line. This has been such a fun, bizarre, and heartwarming adventure. It's one of those rare instances for me where I actually want to read the manga later on at some point.

Gakuen Alice really excelled at its wacky comedy. The antics were random but never out of place. Hotaru sending Mikan flying with that huge flyswatter killed my sides, especially when Bear went up to bat. But even on the other side of the coin, I was surprised by how serious this was able to get as well. The whole idea with the academy having a darker side to it was really fascinating and I hope to delve more into that should I pick up the manga.

Mikan was an absolute riot. Adorable, earnest, and down to Earth. It was a delight to see not only how she grew as a character, but also how she influenced everyone around her with her sincere feelings. I was hoping to see at least some more direct hints of romance between her and Natsume, but the way they closed that gap from hostile strangers to good friends was satisfying as well. I wasn't that big on the focus on Hotaru since stoic characters like her usually don't interest me as much, but it was still heartwarming how much she meant to Mikan and vice versa. Heartwarming...but also expensive!

8.5/10, once again just a really fun show and I'm sad that this is where it stops.
