Even if we know that Kumiko and Reina aren't going far than this, I still hoping it would, Kumiko have a crush on her for sure, but Reina is blind for Taki, I have to admit that she was brave to confess near everyone, and we all know that Taki will never accept her.
I am glad Kumiko and Mamiko finally said to each other their real feelings, the third years will be missed.

Taki-sensei you dense!
She confessed to you twice! xD
Well considering teacher-student relationship is forbidden
He probably noticed it, but played it safe

That was kinda sad they got bronze
Last scene is so heartwarming
If only they hugged each other, it would be so perfect

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.

This was pretty fun. Kumiko and Asuka both get the cathartic resolution to their respective arcs, it was cute.

Just a general piece of advice for those who weren't satisfied with this episode: it's useful and fun to listen to the perspectives of other people, especially if they contribute to the discussion in a meaningful way, but don't forget. Your interpretation is just as valid!

I felt bad, but I had to laugh at Reina's horribly futile second attempt. Not only can Taki not connect the dots, he isn't even aware of the existence of any dots. I would understand if girls constantly confessed to him but he literally said he wasn't sure if the students really liked him. I commend Reina for having the guts to confess in front of an audience, twice. Maybe third time's the charm and he'll actually get it?

@VersoSciolto I read through your posts in the thread. I totally forgot about that incident! And it was in the 3rd year of junior high, not even kindergarten or something. Man, I mostly just found Shuuichi forced or boring so far but god he's a jerk and a creep. Though I'll admit I find it funny how far you went in your crusade against him. As usual, you brought up a lot of interesting stuff, and I like that you can criticize the show without attacking the other viewers. Reina's situation looks a lot less funny and more depressing now.

Bold confession by Reina, but sensei brushed it off on both occasions. This was a sad episode with them walking with bronze, I was so disappointed by them and they didn't even bother to show their performance.

Also the senpais retiring from the club was inevitable but they will be missed.

Is interesting in how they took such a strange direction with this episode which reflects how they chose to do this season as well; less emphasis on the musical aspect and more focus towards the actual characters. Personally I preferred what they did in season 1.

It was odd how Mamiko didn't stay back to congratulate Kumiko afterwards.

Well,that was one hell of a confession xD

God,I'm so sad that we didn't get to see at least a bit of the performance and that Kitauji didn't get gold;_;

However,beautiful episode.
One Piece episode 914 & 915 were a mistake.

I'm extremely mad that there's no final performance. I couldn't hear Asuka playing to see if she could handle being away from the band for so long and to see her father's face while she reckt the entire place. I would've been more mad if they had own gold instead.

Haven't watched this season yet but I can't be the only with disappointed with who Himiko ends up with. It honestly makes me not want to continue the series if I'm honest

The final performance is finally here. I was Kinda sad we didn’t get to actually hear them play.

Aww Reina actually confessed to Taki. Obviously he thought she was just cheering him on. She pretty brave, I will say that.

Too bad we didn’t get gold. But they sure worked hard and it payed off. None of them thought they’d make it so far. But they did.

Just crying over here!

What a great ending for Asuka and her dad. Its insanely sad that he wasnt in her life, she refers to him as someone who "used to be" her father. He could have tried harder.
Its sweet that she was able to do that though. His gift of the euphonium was nice, and her gift to him of making it to the nationals was great.

Reina's confession in the auditorium had me screeeeeaming! I was cry/laughing all over the place, it was so ridiculous. The poor club, never had anything prepared c": and then Taki-sensei just brushed her second confession off like a piece of lint. I was dying. He's so cool.

And finally, Kumiko and her sister♡♡ what a sweet ending. I love that Shuuichi was concerned about their relationship, and it really made Kumiko think about it. I'm so happy. The show really railed us hard about her sister being a bitch, but held our hand as they explain how she felt all that time. God, the writing is spot on.

They get bronze. Gosh, Reina was so desperate she told Taki-sensei about her feelings.

Too bad we didn't get to see the performance but great anyways! ^^
I liked the kinda finishing developments this episode. Tanaka and her father, Oumae and her sister, Reina and sensei (not really finished but there was the confession) also better development between the trumpet senpai (forgot her name sry) and Reina
Hoping for a good finish next ep ^^

Honestly, I’m a little disappointed that we didn’t get to see the performance but it really ticked the other boxes so I’m super glad!

Always glad to see more bonding before the plays, I especially liked the focus given to Mizore-senpai with Nozomi (twice, in fact, but the other being after the play) and oddly Kumiko too, I wonder if that’s her way of thanking and raising the spirits of her kouhai. Dat aside, it’s cool that they get a sleepover together right before and like the usual, Kumiko can’t sleep but we have a different person keeping her company this time (whoo-hoo, lol). Man, I just love these two’s interactions, “Ah, Shoichi kuh? Ouch.” Amazing how he’s kept hold of it for so long but good that it’s finally out to her, and no wonder that Sapphire-chan was the catalyst behind it xD. Got to say kumiko with the hot coffee was really cute though, lol.

And then, fast forward to after the play with some odd Reina moments. I really couldn’t make what was going on then, had a feeling it was a past encounter but too bad it wasn’t ;-; Nezuko’s “Otsukare~”, *sigh* lol. Anyway, that shocking confession lmao. Reina’s got the moves, xD. What a save too! But, of course, Take-sensei is still oblivious to her feelings lol. Yuko’s consolation and Kaori-senpai’s ‘gambete’ pose was nice to see following that. Lol @ how the homeroom teacher was so strict earlier about the stern expressions but then teared up afterwards, she’s become quite the interesting person to see. I also really liked the little addition of the assistant teachers getting a bit of the screen time to lift their spirits up. And then lol, Midori really is hilarious but motivational on point, xD. Lol, her thinking about whether Reina really likes Take-sensei or not during the penultimate moment (result) and swiftly going back to praying thanks to Hazuki’s intervention was really sweet!

Good lord, Asuka-senpai’s father sends a message lol. I knew it was coming but that was quite the short touching line. I was expecting her mother to show up too but I suppose things don’t always work out like that. Kumiko’s little moment with her sister after that was really powerful too, she finally got the words out.

I can’t deny I was looking forward to more of Taki-sensei’s past though, but welp.

I finished the season earlier this morning (3 am) actually but I wanted to collect my thoughts after a rewatch (of the final two episodes) so here I am nearly 15 hours later. On to the Episode 13 Discussion for yet another long post now, lol.

Oh, I did not think they would get bronze. I was prepared for gold and silver, well played. That last scene was kinda weird, instead of just hugging each other they scream at each other on a bridge xD
