The first half of the episode was great. The 1st years tearfully closing the library together. Kanan and Dia handing the certificate to Mari to thank her for all her efforts. Aqours closing the rusty gates of the school together. All of this was handled well.

And theeeeeen the weirdness happened. Chika throws a magical paper airplane that travels for miles to land perfectly on the school rooftop. The entire student body shows up in the gym, even though no one knew Chika would end up here. Aqours was there too, including the 3rd years who already left. They were all prepared with another live, even though no one should have been there in the first place. What the hell was that?

They could have ended this episode, this series, any other way. End with them closing the gates to the school and performing a last live as a final sendoff? Or a hint as to what the movie might be maybe? But nope. We get a contrived ending that makes no sense and ruins the drama of the first part of the episode.

This movie better reveal all of this to be part of a giant plot twist, all delusions in Chika's head (including that weird bus sequence in episode 9), or I will be severely disappointed.


magic in Love Live is never a delusion lol

Just wow.
Whoever wrote the storyboards for the show must've been hard at work to cram all that crap in there, hats off.

After the first season of Sunshine barely pulled through, I had my faint hopes this one would deliver. How wrong I was.

felt more like revenge of the sith or the empire strikes back. the entirety of this season but especially the final episode left a really bitter aftertaste in my mouth. also aqours>μ despite the depressing conclusion.

I finally finished it. 2nd season was way too slow. I just couldn't force myself to watch it. Imo the weakest LL anime. Nonetheless I'm interested in the movie.

Shiitake being a female was the best plot twist lol

I'm glad they won the Love Live competition, but too bad they didn't save the school.

I kept praying that they didn't do an ass-pull and say the school has decided not to be closed, because it would be farfetched. But I still don't get why Chika had to say goodbye to the school one last time, when she already said her goodbyes with her friends. Was it to make us think the school has been saved, if it was then that was petty! They should've done the last performance when they were saying those goodbyes together as it was emotional and fitting. It just took away the sentimental when she was the one who had to reminisce.

Overall it was a great last performance and the series was good. Them not saving the school made the series real and not some stupid fairy tale bull where everything has a happy ending. Sometimes you win some and sometimes you lose some in life. I wish sometimes these Love Live finales could be properly done, like get us through the action of the final competition. Like how did other competitors pen out, and the intensity the strain of the performance of our main cast had to go through before winning the finals. They shouldn't just say they've won, because it took away the passion of the story and shows how much the writers are lazy. I get they have to do 13 episodes and can't fit that there, but they should've snipped off some stories as some were unnecessary, like the Yoshiko story where she founded a lost dog.

Anyways until then it will get 7 and not beyond that.

for how big love live meant to them, surprised there wasn't a proper win announcement at the event. i like that they won at love live, but they still ended up losing the school. makes a hard truth. if this were the original love live, there would've been some way the directors would squish in to save the school. i think the plot of aquors is better, but i still prefer µ's.
but since im a love live fangirl of many years this is getting a good rating lol, im a sucker

The way this show does the "Nothing can be the Original" Thing makes me think this was done as a basic deconstruction of the Formula Used by the first 2 seasons. If you do something fantasizing being just like someoone else you won't succeed. Thats the Harsh Trush.
