Kimi-kiss ~ pure rouge Episode 24 Discussion
Mar 22, 2008 12:44 PM
THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
That's it? Wow... What a simple way to end things.
I was so wrong in the 'Who will end up with who' thread <_< At least I got Futami and Kazuki right :) I enjoyed their kiss a lot. The Kai thing felt so random. Kouchi and Mao kissing was pretty good.
Ah well, it's an ending nonetheless.
So what did you guys think of the series as a whole? I thought it was alright. The animation and art was generally good. The characters were fun though some, I believe, lacked development. The content was so-so. In all, I'd give it a 7/10.
That's it! The end of another series! Yay!

It was quite predictable since quite a few chapters back. Not really a bad ending, but I feel sad about Hoshino, she's still my fav. character in kimikiss.

Very nice final episode. Much better than just to end it with everyone being happy. I feel sorry for Yuumi-chan but Kouichi x Mao was destined from the start. I'm just happy that Kazuki and Eriko finally came together, they're my fave couple and Eriko's my fave girl of this show.
Very solid 8.

A great and simple way to end things and it left me completely satisfied.
As a whole, I would give this series a goo 8/10... The animation was great and the story may not have been original but it had plenty of content (24 eps.) and the character did help bring out the most of the story. Well no point repeating stuff that's in my review. ^_^

Well, it only took 24 episodes for the main leads to get together... but it was a semi-interesting ride there. The Kazuki-Eriko scene made me verbally go "awwww" but the Mao-Kouichi was a little lackluster.
This could easily have been condensed into 12/13 eps in my opinion, and what differs an 8 from a 7 for me is whether I'd ever consider watching it again... and this one, I don't think I would. Just because sooo slooow. So, 7/10 for now... I may bump it up to an 8 though.

even if i was for yuumi x kouichi all along, its still better if he at least admits what he really feels <.< even if that sucks
still, really good ending, and i like that most of the resolutions were believable. for example for once a few persons who were turned down don't get a major depression and break down in tears. yuumi especially was really great, i mean of course its really bad for her, but its not as if she hadn't realized it since a long time ago, and had more than enough time to try to cope with it, so it would be just stupid if she had a sudden breakdown. especially since one of the central things regarding her was her gaining more self-confidence, which was really visible.
eriko x kazuki was sappy but nice, and surprisingly well written out, given that i somewhat disliked kazuki for some time (but maybe that was just because he has the same name as the abomination of a side character that is kazuki in dragonaut xD") and had not the highest expectations there.
overall, a 8/10 from me, because it is in my opinion better than most shows in this genre, part of this because its not your typical harem and the characters are quite normal/realistic/believable for a change. what almost dropped it to a 7 would have been the sometimes annoyingly slow pacing, and the most of the second half always annoyingly stupid kouichi, but well, im feeling generous because i like the rest of the cast a lot. what would have been necessary for getting a 9 would be more character development (some characters didn't change that much actually, even if their affections did), and a more fluid pacing.
for a final word: i hope some of the ideas herein are taken up by other creators, and start forming an anti-harem trend following the current harem-overflow <.<; because no, more is not always better

Kazuki is the man. He's the main character for me.
It's just disappointing how Mao admitting to Kouichi that she loves him managed to wipe out his built up feelings for Yuumi though.
Oh well, I'm gonna go track down that oneshot where Nana and Narumi experiment kissing with each other.

KouichixMao came true. I'm happy with that result. Hoshino also gets +respect for realizing it all the while and being strong and shit.
Disappointed with the KazukixFutami turn-out. It's not that I hate Futami (I find a number of her traits quite similar to mine), but I just prefer Sakino.
Fuck Kazuki. He's gay.
It also seems Hiragi and Kuryu (class rep) hooked up. =]
Overall, this series gets an 8/10 for me, simply because I thought it did a better job in this genre than most other animes.

I thought the ending was amazing, even though it was very predictable. Futami was so cute! I'm happy with what Aihara said and how he found her.
I was a bit disappointed in how fast Kouichi found Mao. It felt like he knew exactly where she was which was kind of stupid. They should have made it seem like he was at least trying to search for her like they did with Aihara. Maybe have him go to her classroom or back to the fire..or something. O well, the two kisses where perfect. They both deserve each other. I feel bad for Yuumi but at the same time I'm happy for her. At the start of the series she was very shy and never spoke to anyone. Now shes pretty outgoing. I think she developed into a nice women. I'm sure she will find someone perfect in her new school.
updated relationship chart. I dont plan to post them all in the final thread so if you want them search each Kimi-Kiss thread for my posts and you will find the link to each image (if any).
