After all those drama I didn't see the Nationals coming xD
Two seasons just finished here with the bronze, disappointing but it's more realistic I guess
can't wait for the last one !
I thought the second season was a step down from the first. But the idea of slapping "realistic" results on to patently unrealistic shows really grates.

No performance? Sad... though I can't complain about what the episode showed here so it's still a 5/5!
The moment between Kumiko and Shuuichi at night was cute. Shuuichi carrying around that present all this time. I so wish we could see them get together, seeing as there's one more episode I guess I can still hope. That was a cute gift.
Yoroizuka-senpai's approaching Kumiko was cute. Silently and slowly moving closer and closer towards Kumiko until finally... the cutest fist bump in history. And then Asuka-senpai coming over to have a talk. Kumiko really has grown. She has so many friends and grew close to so many people in the wind ensemble in a relatively short period of time.
Wish we could've seen the performance still, but that'd take at least a quarter of an episode so I understand.
Why were all the other schools prepared to cheer on their teachers but Kitauji was not? But Reina really is reckless today, suddenly standing up and saying "Sensei, suki desu!" in front of literally everyone in the auditorium lol. That takes courage and that was sweet and cute to see. Although it seems people just thought it was her making sure Taki-sensei didn't receive nothing during the acceptance of his award. And she made sure to say it again later on. It seems everyone has realised that Reina loves Taki-sensei... except for Taki-sensei lol. I loved how her senpai were all "don't give up, Kousaka."
I didn't expect them to win bronze, to be honest. I fully expected them to get gold even though that's a bit far logically (since they're pretty new to this). But they did win bronze and I was really surprised, but I liked it. It was like a dose of reality. Sad, of course, but that made things more realistic.
Asuka-senpai received a message from her father, who asked Taki-sensei to give it to the girl playing the euphonium. Although he was vague about whom exactly, I'm sure it was aimed at Asuka-senpai specifically and he chose his words carefully. I'm so glad Asuka-senpai managed to reach that goal of hers, to get her father to hear her playing and then her father gave her that message! So, so happy for her. Her getting all excited and hugging Kumiko also really showed her growth, how she's changed, and how close she is to Kumiko now.
I've always loved Haruka. She's really brave, strong, selfless, and kind. She took on a job nobody wanted amidst a horrible situation that nobody would ever want to face. But she never gave up, even if self-doubt kept eating away at her. I really admire her. And that was a nice speech, Haruka, even if you did cry in the end. But who wouldn't in her position, having gone through such tough times and never thinking once that they could get to Nationals, yet here they are. Asuka-senpai as always was blunt. She was frustrated with the result, but what a speech she gave to rile up her juniors so that they will get gold next year.
And finally, Kumiko and her sister. After 25 episodes, we finally see the culmination of her growth. She shouted everything she wanted to say to her sister. How she loves the euphonium, how she came to love it and wind ensemble because of her, and most importantly, how she loved her sister. And her sister, too, really loved her. Finally the two sisters reconcile after a breakdown that started with Mamiko being forced to quit wind ensemble. It was happy to see.
Can't believe it's the final episode already. I want, no, need more!
This is so sad :') I wonder what they have in store.
Onto the final piece!
