So the final OVA did air as it should have been.

And it’s over! Damn the wedding was so cool. Yuuto was so cool in the following,

All beat up and serious. He is kind of like Gentou but skinner and less powerful but more cold calculating and has a maid army instead of himself as a powerhouse. Rather nice depiction there.

While in the following,
Poor Gentou, his daughter is out and taken.

Finally that kiss! Oh that kiss! Finally! THEY DID IT RIGHT! Actually they did show a good example of life, mishaps happen till the perfect moment where none occur and all goes well.

I think it’s just a come back to what Clannad showed of keeping that kiss for that special moment and it was OVER 9000 plain and simple. Leaving it at that.

S1 was good and the best IMO for a intro.
S2 was just more characters and ecchi but some minor developments that frustrated more than anything.
S3 aka OVAs are more the more ecchi but the most compacted to solve out all. Well suffice to say I am quite happy for Haruka and Yuuto.

So ends the series.

It was a good series and the art with the MOE really stood out a lot. The references were good in general and the fan service was top notch due to its art but was not needed as S1 showed it quite nicely with almost none. I assume it was lack of $$$ that prompted it to be like that. OVAs too to deliver well having more $$$ helps that even if a little.

2 girls will remain in my eternal HAREM:
AMAZING LOLIS! I tell ya! There were great! Especially Touka in S2 well she came back in this episode and damn she looked fine. Them boots. Here:
Freebie. But yeah Touka was the best for me with Mika.

Still like Haruka and Shiina whom I have posters of both.

So yeah this series really distinguished itself with its style and art along the effects it made on viewers.

Now we need Touka/Mika version animes.

Final score stays at 9/10!

Seemed average to me. Quite generic and predictable. I have been reading the manga for it which hasn't been fully translated yet but it was just average for this OVA series.

The "action" scene was okay but cliched. I saw that falcon punch coming to Yuuto after everything now especially since Haruka's dad is pissed off with everything that's been happening. Dem drama:

Well, I'm happy for the two of them but this OVA series wasn't special imo. 5/10.

It's finally over and they showed a real wedding in the anime. I am glad because in the light novels, after Yuuto rescued Haruka they had a mock wedding (or engagement party) during Haruka's birthday instead. Though later they became legally married after turning in their marriage registration form but they never had a wedding yet. But here in the anime, they had a real wedding.

I wonder if the wedding occurred sometime after their high school graduation cause in the LN it is mentioned that their relationship remained a secret from everyone at school until graduation. The OP theme said the happy ending was a secret but it was actually very obvious how it was gonna end. Though the biggest surprise was the wedding because I expected them to have some mock wedding like in the LN. But they showed a real wedding and finally a kiss in the end, which was a better ending than in the LN, though I was hoping it had more story.

Colormesubbed is supposedly working on it. But it's been weeks since they have commented on it. Maybe they're waiting on the BR version, although I thought the BR of episode 4 came out at the end of November.

It's finally over :'( happy that Haruka and Yuuto got married.

Although i hated how we had to wait for 2 seasons and 4 OVAs just to see what we all wanted to see...the both of them kissing, they end it with what we all wanted to see since the end of S1.

Trolls :p

Well, this ending was kind of expected after all. The anime was too cliched, so nothing special. The OVA episode 4 had more action than all the episodes combined tbh.

But then, they kissed in the end, so I'm all good lol

I loved the series before, now I'm kinda glad its all wrapped up and finished.
was gonna give this a 5, but the fact that i actually god to see an ending in an anime, let alone a happy one, brought it up to 6

Very cliche, but it was a happy ending and a conclusive one so i can say i enjoyed it for the fact that it wrapped it up in a nice way. The kiss at the end was also a plus, so ya despite its heavy cliches it was enjoyable.

Series deserved better than an OVA finale. I didn't recognized 70% of the cast, lul.

+ Closure to everything.
- Cheesy ending. comrades leaving behind so the heroes can advance. this aint an action adventure anime, baby!
- Haruka got no nipples.
- No proper build ups. Just an ending, then onto the next thing that needed to be concluded.

SSJ2 out of 10.

When I first saw this anime back in 2008 I thought it had pretty good potential.

I liked the premise of a girl being an otaku but she was hiding this secret from everyone including her own family and friends.

The first few episodes of season 1 were really the best ones of this entire series.

From then on the show was just horribly generic trope one after another without ever stopping.

I foolishly hoped that these last 4 episodes would be worthwhile episodes with as few generic scenes as possible.

That was too hard for them and they went the opposite route.

The only good thing I can say is that they gave the series closure and we don't have to wonder what happened to the main characters.

Other than that, this was almost UNBEARABLE to watch.....5/10

That was so damn cliche it hurt, the girl being in an arranged marriage. Even though the parents supposedly supported them being together back in the other series. It was so damn redundant besides the other girl confessing, which then she falls for another guy trips on her, makes you wonder if she really liked him in the first place.

Shiina is gonna end up with that Comiket guy (I think).

Meh... the standard "fight-the-parents scene" to test their bonds stuff.

I think the best thing about this ep was seeing Touka again and that ending kiss (expected but took long enough).

Overall... the whole series was interesting enough but the ending was just too generic IMO.
I mainly see the animes... so don't blame me for not knowing about the Manga/LN

Great final episode! This last one was just amazing and a great ending for the whole series! The quick pace and amazing story development sure made up for previous mistakes! In general quite a good Anime 7/10 for the whole series!

That was a big pile of crap. This was the anime that made me into ani-otaku, i can't believe this is how it ended. Something so disappointingly cheesy.

Is what i would like to say but around 18:30 when gehntou called yuuta 'son' my own cheesiness took over and then we see the wedding. Now the only complaint i have, and its a big one, is why the wedding took all of 30 seconds. Thats what i've been waiting for not some stupid final battle.

Still love the series but dislike this episode.

I hate myself for finishing everything I sit through for a whole season.

I didn't expect a wedding in the end, but it's a nice surprise. One question that was still left unanswered for me is why is the teacher living with Yuuto and his sister? The only thing I can think of is Yuuto's teacher and Sister and lesbians living together, and there is plenty of evidence to point to that.

I predicted that it was a test since the ending at OVA 3 because what parents would let their daughter get close and intimate with a man then just turn around and say "Sorry honey, I'm giving you off to another boy." The scene at the beginning of the OVA 4 though had me doubting for a minute though.

Also I have to say that Gentou's muscles must be implants, or he's really good at holding back his strength because there is no way in reality someone with muscles that big won't break someone's bones after hitting them many times. It's probably the latter because it was all a test.

I totally expected this to be a setup, a test for the two clueless lovebirds, from when Akiho called him. I began doubting it in the middle, but when the mother vs daughter and father vs son(in law) fights started, I was sure. And I was also sure there was going to be a wedding. Which means that there HAD to be a kiss. A wedding without a kiss wouldn't be a wedding at all, period

Also, the ending was cheesier than a Pizza quattro formaggi with cheese rim and extra double cheese. Not complaining, at least it matched the series. Besides, I like cheese, especially when I have laxatives at home ^,.,^

Final-F*cking-ly, it's over...
The first couple of episodes of S1 were really interesting, but the lack of development till the end of this OVA was quite painful to watch..
Even with this cheesy ending, which fits the series really well, I'm happy that they finally kissed on the last 10 seconds, lol.
The entire series receives and overall 5/10.

This could have been the worst anime ever if they didn't kiss. Thanks god, I can finally see what I have always wanted although I had to wait a bit too long and the kissing scene is not as romantic as I expected.

Was a drag on but I guess OVA closed up things and happy end! The kiss w/o interruption was nice since they got interrupted every time and I was happy with that
7/10 for me because of the long run and drag on

It's so rare to see a series like this with a conclusive ending. Granted it was not the best build up for it but I'm cool with that. Feel bad for Shiina but she can move on.

what the hell did i just watch?

it turned into a shounen battle anime for a while there.

S1, half of S2 and S3's ep 1-3 was pretty good for me.
other half of S2 and this final episode was downright silly.

i'm not gonna lie and say i didn't enjoy the haruka hitmitsu series as a whole, but damn it got pretty cheesy towards the end. At least there was closure.

well, and so it goes...
