Omake Special from the final DVD volume. The Special storyline has very little to do with the original series outside of having some of the same characters, and has a completely different storyline which does not fit into anything which came before it.

Ending Theme

"Neko Mimi Mode" by Dimitri From Paris

One of things that bothered me about Tsukuyomi: Moon Phase was the mood. When a show opens with Neko Mimi Mode, an incredibly silly and lighthearted song with such silly animation, along with all the falling basins added for comedy effect, you wouldn't expect the dark atmosphere the show had. What makes this special enjoyable is that from the outright, it lets the viewer know that it's not meant to be taken seriously. For me, it was a pleasant way to end the series after the awkwardly dark tone of the main series.

Story 9/10.

I have to admit I did not really enjoy this special as much as I did the series. The artwork seemed to be very different to what I had seen previously, and they did use some strange techniques in the special. Gladly the characters were still recognisable, except for Seiji who seems to have aged considerably.

There were some odd moments, especially with grandfather and Elfried and an octopus (dont tell anybody), and poor Haiji gets the short end of the stick from Art. I did like Haiji as a character throughout the series and I had to admire her pluckiness once again.

I can't recommend this episode at all, it's bizarre to the point of being incoherent. I'm guessing that it's supposed to be "funny" but it completely misses the mark. And that's saying something as I actually sorta liked the humor in the original show. If you were hoping it would expand on or develop the characters more, it doesn't. It doesn't have the same charm a lot of the original slice-of-life episodes have, which is really disappointing since I think that was the strong suit of this series.

The only reason I'm not rating this a 1 is because I understand some people might ...
