Oh man, that Akari and Nishigaki scene. Couldn't stop laughing when she fixed it with batteries.
Season 3 where?Also, this.
NKNKN said:Kinda tempted to agree with this completely. Doesn't help that I hate "all a dream" endings by default, even if in this case it was a manga instead. This is the only thing that kept me from giving...I think the first 5/5 I'd ever have given an ep in these threads.
Personally I'm pretending the last bit after the explosion didn't happen, as I agree that it cheapens the impact of Akari's return, which would have been a great ending in the first place. Maybe it's just my wishful thinking, as having a supernatural and a serious element in Yuru Yuri's story is very out-of-place, but when it's done so very well here I really don't want to have it just retconned out as another imaginary scenario.
Undim said:Undim's suggestion is good, and if they wanted a callback to anything that would've been a good way to do it.
I didn't like the end, it really cheapens things that a lot of effort seemed to go into to make, for what is ultimately the exact same gag from the season opener. The exploding time machine was a good enough punch line as it was and with a little bit of tweaking, may have been even better.
Say for example, Akari could have started to speak on realizing how loved she was and the importance of "my . . ." , only NOW to get interrupted by Kyoko asking if she heard right, that Nishigaki had fixed the time machine. Then everyone notices the machine starting to light up and a commotion is made. Cut back to Akari making the same crying expression as when Sugiura interrupted her big plan speech and finishes out the same "My Presence!"
In the build up to the explosion, with everyone running out of the building, you have Akari trying to scramble to get the words out in time in a vein effort to not have her presence interrupted again for what will probably be another year. Instead she gets blown up and the status quo is still equally retained while also making a call back connection to the big event of her past self getting interrupted.
I realize the nature of the show absorbs a lot of the blow of how much an ending like this can hurt anything but even if you don't do anything like what I described, I think there had to be a million other avenues you could have taken to give this episode a big punchline ending without falling back to an overused gag that really disservices the episode's own accomplishments.
To me, it never happened. The last line in the episode was Kyouko reconfirming that Nishigaki-sensei fixed the machine. XP

I literally came this >< close to letting out an involuntary "D'aaaawwww!" by the end.
Chizuru in the group shot at the end made me WTF. (1) Why does she even care? She's met Akari like once. If it's just because Chitose's so happy, fine, but...? (2) Why is she reacting differently from everyone-else? Tho "because Chizuru" would be an acceptable answer here, I think, if it isn't because of Chitose along with (1).
More Chitose/Chizuru, Sakurako, and Himawari might have made up for the ending. Nana and Matsumoto helped, along with the snippet of the s1 OP. Still think both the s1 tunes are better than s2's.
I am shipping Akane/Akari so damn hard right now, I can't even. I have lost all capacity to even. Sure there was a small KyōkoRin moment in there, but I'm not sure I could care less about it at the moment. Akane is now a complete babe in my book and deserves everything she wants, including things she doesn't yet know she wants. Like Tomoko. Mmhm. Yeah, I'm totally going OT4 (Akane/Akari/Chinatsu/Tomoko) for the first time ever, and I'm not sure how I feel about the fact, but it is what it is, and it will take something drastic in the final ep to make me think about changing it.
Like Yui. If Yui actually makes a serious move toward Chinatsu, I'll consider changing it. Doubt she will tho, the indecisive little bint.
