Well, it took it's sweet time.
I did like the anime though. Recently there are more sports anime, so when I saw one about (male) cheerleading I thought it would be fun.
Though I would like to know if they won or not... Damn cliffhangers ;-;
I think it was a good finale.

I got emotional at the end performance, with the member's diary entries and flashback of their hard work throughout the series. I'm really proud of them, this show wasn't about cheerleading as much as it was about them overcoming whatever they wanted to or were afraid of. Haru gained a lot of confidence. True to slice of life, the characters grew by the end in a realistic way. I really liked the characters, and overall it was an enjoyable watch. As a SoL lover who likes that sort of mundane atmosphere without too much drama, Cheer Danshi! was the perfect summer watch. I think the show accomplished what it set out to do, which has to do with their team name "Breakers."
Also, it's Brains Base, they pretty much specializes in SoL and are not known for sakuga. They're the animation company that producers/publishers would likely go to for, more or less, consistent quality with average to below average budget, from what I've gathered of the shows I've watched animated by them. Sure it's not an excuse, but again, it's not really a show about cheerleading. It's about people who grow after joining a cheerleading club for whatever reasons they had for doing so.

They won, right? Right?!
I mean, I had a feeling the Sparks were like, the top people or something, and the bits of their performance you saw were quite inferior to what the Breakers did, so I think they won..
It would've been a nice little effect if, during the recruiting part in the end the flyers would've said something like, "Join Breakers, winners of the cheerleading Nationals 2016!" ..or whatever year it's supposed to be in..
Still found it a surprisingly fun anime.
*Sniff* my boys grew up..

i did really enjoy this anime (especially the gayness. honestly - haru's crush didn't seem very genuine and saku was canonically gay for kazu, we all know it)
the last episode was not really special, but it felt like a good ending that wasn't rushed (i'm still recovering from the servamp finale...) and the diary/notebook idea was really quite cute, i agree with previous posters on that.
i am really gonna miss the breakers and i hope they will make a second season! the possible new members would give enough plot opportunities i.m.o. (i haven't read the manga, so sorry if i am making incorrect assumptions...)
GO! FIGHT! WIN!

ibraheem234 said:At least it wasn't like the Western animes/movies where they are considered the underdogs and win it. That's so annoying. I prefer to have these open ends with how they got to where they are. IMO that's true growth of a character.
well typical end... the thing about the diaries was sweet
What if the Hokey Pokey is what it is all about?

Quite liked the character growth, and the diaries wrapped up their goals well. Many had real troubles & overcame them together.
Sporty feel was consistent & motivational. Mizoguchi, Chen & Chipmunkman had better comedy than some this season.
I like how the episode didn't care about placement or circus, and went for "smile."

what's the title of the song at 24:18 of this episode? the lyrics is English.
the title is " Cheer to the sky" - and it's included in the original soundtrack CD2 Track No.17 -
I have no confirmation yet,but most probably the performers of this song is the band "Luck life" (who sang the opening song of this anime by the way ^_^ )
and yes as far as I can hear from the small parts it was English :D
something along those lines I think :
"Go! we Fight together , we born to be one,
so let's (...) our hearts, now (....)
no need to delay (?) , our (....)
cheer to the sky~ "
I can't really tell what's he saying, I only can hear few words from here and there LOL
I hope this helps ^__^

Cheer danshi ending was heart warming and it move me to tears. I don't want it to end but...
what an ending. Everybody got character development.
Chen became the MVP of the series, Haru overcome is fear of heights, Kazu was able to tell Haru his grandma is not doing well, Ton got a girlfriend that at first I was mad that he stole Haru's future love interest but at the end of the series I was glad that Ton have her cause remember Ton joins the team to change his life and a girl can fix that no problem. Wataru will stop quote phrases from people that no one knows, Sho was able to face his pass, Hissashi is able to accept people have personal life besides cheerleading, Haruko accept that Haru doesn't want to do judo.
Cheer danshi get a 10/10 for me and will be in my favorite list for a very long time
and I would recommend this series to the end of the world if I have to.

They actually focus on the basic of cheerleading and what is a cheerleader instead of performances after performances after performances.
The ending to it is weird at first but when you think about it cheerleading is not about wining or losing. Is about supporting people, making them smile and inspired them

THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
Wow, they really took their sweet time even in this episode for the buildup.
Seriously, the pacing of this show is almost laughable. The final performance was okay I guess? Breakers certainly did better than their previous runs.
Err... You do know the show has no story right??
You telling me there's a story in this description??
Haruki Bandou was born into a family of Judo marital artists and expected to continue the family legacy. But he’s about to trade Judo for…cheerleading?! When his childhood friend Kazuma Hashimoto invites him to join the BREAKERS, a male cheerleading club, Haru finds himself amongst a quirky group of boys. Can this squad of slightly odd and cute members make a breakthrough in college athletics?
