THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Oh man, that was a really unexpected ending. The tree is finally gone and Sakurai is left standing because Sakura and Junichi sacrificed themselves? Meh, It's an average ending in my opinion.

Okay I just pretty much called this episode...xD

That was a very fitting ending worthy of the Da Capo name. I have two small gripes with this episode...

One was the whole overly dramatic Sakura Tree resurrection...

The other concerns the finality of the ending. I am a pure supported of the ambiguous ending (aka Yume end) but they also added the Otome end which pretty much solidifies that there is no pairing whatsoever in DCII:SS xD

This is exactly how a harem series is supposed to work out in my opinion. To the very end, the viewers are left to wonder who exactly the male lead picked. I would have preferred a conclusion, but its better than the pairing being decided at the very beginning of the series.

Think I might write a review...

nothing surprising in this episode, but strangely, I'm satisfied. it's a first DC series I'm giving a 7/10 (all previous seasons I gave a 6), cause I just can't say I didn't enjoy it. I do hope there won't be any more seasons though...

Almost the same thing i did. Da Capo i gave 6's and Da Capo II i gave it a 4. But this one was my fave. I gave this an 8/10. After scores like these i can't believe that i actually watched 4 seasons of Da Capo. But i'm glad that i watched this season.

well, that was a Da Capo ending. I enjoyed this season, I also think it's the best one.

I'm still in TT_TT, but it was great. Although Sakura and Junichi are now gone, permanently, it's more justifiable that they disappeared along with the series.

pretty weak series imo....mainly cause it needs more shirakawa. i lost all motivation to continue after ep 7 cause there wasnt shirakawa.

long live shirakawas!

How is DCII:SS worse off than DCII?

Meh they completely ruined DCII by sidelining Nanaka (which oddly enough is probably the most favourite DCII character) for Minatsu and Koko. The Koko/Nanaka angst of DC2 made for a great story...sad that part of the novel won't ever see the light of day as an anime.

The original Da Capo wasn't all that great either. The last few episodes made it great, but pretty much 3/4's of the series was filler and a rushed plot to accommodate all the girls.

DCSS would have been a lot better if Nemu didn't appear so early in the game. Really stupid move that ruined the anime in my opinion.

New season? Try the DCII and DCII:IF manga.

What a stupid ending... I mean, it was good, but meh... after 3 or more episodes of crying because Yoshi-w/e-his-name-is was going to disappear, now he appears back again just because everyone think about him. But good season after all, at least way better than the 1st.

fixed. that is my thought on this. I'm no fan of da capo but this season was quite enjoyable.

The ending was okay in my opinion. I'm the type that prefers a solid pairing. And in this case I would've been fine with either sister since I like both of them very much. Never the less, the build up towards it was great though it did get a bit overly dramatic. Overall, gets a 7 from me.

While I actually saw this back when it came out, I never bothered to write anything here:
In short, this season had a lot of potential, but a lot of it was wasted due to the fact that they failed to make Yoshiyuki even slightly relatable. Like, every single "emotional" moment consisted of him standing 20 feet away from someone, with a blank expression on his face, except the ending, where he was standing 3 feet away from someone, still with a blank expression on his face. Wow, huge improvement.
Also, the fact that the final scene from the visual novel wasn't included bothered me, as I really wanted to see that scene...

But this season was still better than D.C.S.S. (Aisia annoyed me to the very core of my being) and D.C.II, (Just wasn't all that interesting) so I'd rate it a 7/10. The first season of the first series was still the best one, by far.

The ending was kinda lame, really rushed, expected and stupid. They should have better brought Sakura back instead.

I have watched all 4 season of this,but I still must say I liked this one the best. most haven't gotten to high of a score from me because of several Issues I got with both characters and story. but this one had the more of a enjoyable scent over it,I just liked watching it,and there was NO Nemu to be seen..
8/10 on this one. I like the fact they you have to guess/hope on your own to figure who he's gonna match up with.

I was surprised how good this season was... well, compared to the other 3 season of Da Failage. When I saw the first episode, I thought it was going back to the Koko cays since their relationship was implied and it was to be broken in 3 arcs after the Tume incident, but I was wrong, luckily.

Although I would have liked the tragic ending, it would only be a Da Capo if everything was happy in the end. Personally, I would have ended it with sisters with no hope left and Sakurai coming through the front door saying "I'm home", but oh well.

I'll have to rate it down a notch because it was happy though. :P 8/10 for me.

i prefered DCII to DCII:SS

mostly because it didnt really focus on the magic in fact it rarely even stated the magic

the whole magic sakura tree thing is so annoying, but ohh well it was better den i thought it would be so 7/10

Ok end. I thought if they ended it at episode 12 would have been fine too but I guess they want happy ending.

I'd say this one is as good as the 1st season D.C.
D.C.S.S had the annoying Aisia who gave me headaches.
D.C II is self explanatory.

Not a pairing but a threesome =).

I didn't realy liked the way it ended. As the previous poster say, it would be ok if the anime ended on the ep 12.

I would like an ending were people just move on withe their lives with the memories of the good old times and no return to life.

Afterall, Yoshiyuki's return did not ruin it so much I expected it to. In contrary, the continuous "da capo" theme fit very well.

For me, DCIISS is the best, or more cautiously, the only good season of DC (full TV series ofc^^). I'm content with what DCIISS delivered, and it makes having watched the previous seasons less of a waste.

ok BIG HOLE in plot everyone..

yoshiyuki comes back because the tree is back.. but the tree only stays long enough to bring him back and then dies/scatters ( thank god, thought the crap was gonna restart ).. so shouldn't yoshiyuki join it? like the way he was born and killed before?

if the solution, as shown, was as easy as sakura asking "onegai sakura tree", there was no point for sakura and junichi to die. cause even after they died, they did nothing, but it was sakura asking the tree in ghost form.

gah cheesy stupid plothole ending.

Its a lot better than the first Da Capo with nemu. I just hated to see Nanaka get shafted like nothing. Da Capo II if?

De capo II season 2 was definitely the best from the da capo series. The other ones didn't pull me in at all. 8/10.

I dont feel like watching all 4 seasons so I read all the summaries. The only question I have left is what happened to Nemu? Is she already dead when all of this is happening?

True there were plot holes here and there but i can forgive it. DC II season 2 was the best out of the 4 for me. 7.5/10. Would have been good to see who he chose though lol.

they left 1 question unanswered, with who Yoshiyuki end up dating? in Da Capo 1 SS they covered it well but not here :(, they shod make OVA to answer that question!!! i hope its Otome not Yume, they match better, 1 thing they were all ready acting like an old couple, well this is not the only question but its a question that interests me the most

but i wold not mind if he chooses both Otome & Yume :D, cause then at least the question are answered, i ton't hate the ending but its not satisfying ending neither :(, i want answers!!!

DesJo answered ur question but i add 1 thing more, Otome & Yume are Nemus & Junichi grandchildren, saying that cause to some it mite appear that they are Junichi's & some ones who is unknown to us, just cause Nemu is not mentioned

8/10.
I really like a anime based on VNs. This one was really good. I like the whole Da Capo, not only this season.
Ok time for Da Capo III. Last season, kinda sad...
Dub = fake crap. Always.
