I expected this ending to be much more sadder with Saki having to leave, especially with the way they were setting it up the last couple of episodes. But it didn't really turn out that way. I guess they did a nice job transitioning it to end on a happier note, with the 4 of them wishing to be best friends forever. That sure was heartwarming to see.

This show was seriously underrated and I liked it a lot. It would have been awesome to see more of this and watch their situation after Saki had moved; but yeh its probably not happening. Ahhh I sure am going to miss watching these 4 girls do their things every week. Oh and the songs in this anime were fantastic.

That was a great concept for a SoL.

Decent, but I expected more emotions when Saki left, it turns out it was one of those everyone-is-happy endings. I found this quite lame.
I guess there won't be a second season since they could barely animate this season with their budget.
Overall 7/10, it was entertaining.
I almost never read discussions after I made my post, if you want to reply PM me or post on my profile page.

One of the best anime I've watched in a while. Strong 8/10!
Very good final episode, no bitter-sweet undercurrent in this episodes proves it. I still shed a couple tears, though. ;__;

I might be a little biased caused by nostalgic feelings but this show about friendship- eternal friendship- really touched me, made me smile but also tear up every so often. In the end I can think about it while smiling and that's what such an anime should be able to achieve.

I guess my prediction of their grandeur debut as idols to end the summer was a little out of reach, even as a miracle. Saki really summed up my thoughts on this episode well - that it's not a memory if it never ends. It seems like Rin's mom knew about the rock and I'm guessing her and the others used to wish on it once upon a time as well.

Overall this had a splendid mix of hilarity, drama, and slice of life moments. Natsuiro did a good job at portraying and building the sense of a strong bond between Yuka, Rin, Saki, and Natsumi. Their interactions just seemed a bit more grounded and down to Earth, like what I'd expect from a group of close friends. It felt more personal that way. The biggest theme I'd say I took away from this is to use the time I have for the most precious things to me, since farewells and goodbyes are inevitable. This series had an especially profound impact on me considering I moved in my second year of middle school as well and left behind a company of good friends that I would constantly spend night and day around.

7.5/10, a solid slice of life that I could both enjoy and relate to, even on a bittersweet note.

Well that was a fun 12 episode ride. Good moments throughout the entire series but by the end of it all I felt like it was a bit lackluster in the grand scheme of things. The addition of a magical rock that could grant wishes had a lot of potential behind it and while it did give us some moments, at other times it felt kind of weak. It reminds me a bit of Hanayamata, the traditional yosakoi dance being the central theme for Hanayamata was quite interesting and I wish the show had gone a bit deeper into it. Same with Natsuiro Kiseki. I wish the show used the magical rock more or gave it a bit more oopmh. Speaking of oomph, the ending was satisfying but it also lacked any oomph.

A bit weak, lots of room for more but as a cute slice of life anime that is only 12 episodes long, it's mediocre storytelling and execution is enough to keep viewers who enjoy these genres entertained. It's not bad by any means but there are other shows that do the job better, a general viewer would likely pass this show up but someone who really likes slice of life will find this anime decent.

Yuka really brought the series to life for me. I love her cheerful attitude and quirky antics.

I just wish there was more to it. 7/10
Now onto the OVA!
