That was such a tearjerker episode. Sniffle.

I knew something crazy will happen... and that is getting the hearts of the students. Loved Misaki's speech.

Can't believe we are down to 1 episode.

I cried :')

I hope the next episode is when the new members of Sakurasou come in.
I doubt there will be season2, but seeing the new members in the anime will be great.

Hehe - good and rowdy. that's the way a graduation ceremony should be. I never could stand those stuffy proceedings.

Again the nationalists are making noises in Japanese forums: They are demanding to know why the graduate ceremony schedule does not have a session to sing the national anthem (as many of the highschools now do) or why the hall does not display Japanese national flags. Oh well.

Facepalm at stereotypical douchey adults in this week's episode

A sweet heartfelt reflection of the past two cour which didn't come off THAT corny X D I really liked how Dragon even got swept up in Misaki's speech and tripped at the end there.

I have never cried as many manly tears as /i did for this episode. Bravo. At first, I was like "Is the whole episode going to be just a speech?". Well, it kind of was, but.......oh my gosh......the tears started flowing and everything. I loved the speech and everyone's reactions. Without a doubt the best episode in the series.

UGLY SOBBING EVERYWHERE. I have never sobbed for a full seventeen minutes before. This show is too much. This was one of the most well made graduation scenes in anime that I've seen before. It was so. I just. ALL MY TEARS.

5/5 for this episode, the best episode of the series.


Omg yes...from Misaki's speech until the end it was just too much. Everything about it was so touching! Even when Sorata looked like a rockstar with that microphone, I choked out a laugh through my tears. And that graduation song T_T this episode seemed like a finale, but of course there's still one more left! Beautiful and wonderfully done episode!

Too cheesy for my liking but it was interesting to see Misaki on-screen for so long without yelling. Even Kanda probably set a personal best. Nice set-up by the seniors. Pretty much everything else was lame. Excessively and shamelessly manipulative episode. Faculty was probably the worst. Given their proclivities, I'm surprised they didn't call in the riot squad to club Sakurasou into submission.

Sweet episode. It felt a little like a final episode. If nothing good (i.e. the kiss), happens next week it will be anticlimactic compared to this weeks episode.

Did we really all watch the same thing? Wasn't this ridiculously over-the-top, annoyingly unrealistic and so forced, as usual? I mean, if someone from a tiny dorm for trouble-makers was suddenly crying telling her life story at the graduation speech, I'd be like, ugh, awkward, please stop embarrassing yourself right now. I mean who cares about an old dorm of like 5-6 people, half of which are leaving anyway? The building does not make the relationship. I can't possibly take this seriously, and so I cannot stand how ridiculous this episode was. The teachers freaking out, trying to shut them up? Really? Sorata screaming and crying like an idiot over the mic? Why would the whole student body suddenly root for them? Why do they care? As they obviously did not in the slightest before. I do apologize for ranting, but I just don't seem to get it.

The scenario presented was "over-the-top" but it is not unrealistic. Though individuals will definitely think it is awkward; the scene presented more than a thousand people in the crowd thus individual reasoning is overwritten by crowd psychology.

Doesn't this make you hungry?

That was such a nice episode. I'm really going to miss Misaki and her antics throughout the season. That speech she gave was touching and funny at the same time. I was laughing when their faces when Misaki wished for Ryuunosuke and Rita to continue to get along with each other. That montage of memorable scenes was nice -- especially the one where Nanami was flustered with Sorata's head next to her bare ass. Those teachers were dicks for treating them like that and throwing Sorata to the ground and covering his mouth like a bunch of thugs.

Welcome to the world of fiction!

But actually, when a few people in the crowd start shouting, it will usually lead to a domino effect that will eventually lead to the rest going with the flow and getting caught in the excitement aswell. At first it's awkward, but once you are caught in the excitement, your view will change. All it takes is someone to kickstart the audience. I've seen that happen before. It actually works.

Why comment you don't like this genre of anime?
That makes no fking sense



I don't speak for Suzie but I thought the second half of this series was all really forced and I sort of stopped having an emotional attachment to any character. It's not that I hate this genre but this anime started off entertaining then started nose diving.

I went into this episode thinking *sigh* I might as well finish the series. Misaki starts talking about hot pots and swimming during a graduation speech, which isn't out of character, but at this point the show doesn't have me emotionally attached. And then Sorata starts yelling like he usually does and everyone joins in. It's all too ridiculous for me. Other forums have had discussion threads up and this is the sentiment of quite a lot of people.

Give us Rita x Ryuu in the last episode and I'll be happy.

I really enjoyed this series when I picked it up, and tried to keep enjoying it despite its many flaws. But the drama and dialogue felt so contrived in the second half that it can no longer redeem itself in my eyes.

Someone's got a dick up their ass. Here's reality for you: I would've dropped that teacher if he touched me - criminal charges afterwards - oh well.

A more serious answer would be: You as the audience wouldn't know their story or their personality as well as you do as the viewer. You will take the speech at face value. What you are told during the ceremony was a very moving speech by a student who's clearly very passionate about her friends and her dorm. Now, if you still think you wouldn't be able to sympathize with her, then that's another story, and just speaks to me who you are. But for 95% of the population, we love cheering for the 'underdogs' or the people who are trying to 'fight the system', if you will. Therefore, it's not unrealistic to see the whole student body cheering them on. Didn't you hear Ryuunosuke at the end? The speech from beginning to end was more of a calculated setup than a simple spur of the moment rant.

Capiche?

Yes, I do know of mob psychology. But it still felt unrealistic for the mob to side with the trouble-makers they didn't care about at all before. Sure, it is possible for that kind of development to happen, but I thought it was unlikely and therefore, I couldn't help but see it as forced. It's not the whole genre I don't like, I just find this series to be particularly over-the-top and so I can't relate to any of the characters or their interactions anymore. Screaming phrases while crying does not make a speech touching. Just. so. much. screaming. and. crying. I know, it's fiction, it's ok for it to be exaggerated, but I wish some of the conflicts in there would be solved in more... realistic ways.

Naturally, it seems to have touched some people, so I won't say it was 100% a "bad speech" and what not. It just felt really really awkward to me and I was thinking the whole time, is this over yet? Please?

I'm glad to see I'm not quite the only one who thinks this way lol.

@kurogashi
I would be tempted to say the opposite... We the viewers have seen their time together and their friendship so we should in theory relate to them. The school does not know of them as such. What the student body knows is that they live together in a dorm for trouble-makers. They shouldn't want to side with them for their beautiful friendship that they don't know of.

3 Words...

Best
Episode
Ever!

I'll tell you what in all the drama type anime that I've watched, this is by far(besides Clannad) is the best 2nd to last episode ever... to tell you the truth, in Clannad I pretty much teared up in ever last 5 episodes of that anime.. nothing can compare to that.. but since this is a new anime, were in a whole other ball game.

This Episode almost brought me to tears. I'd be one happy fella if it ended here, but we've still got one more episode left. I'm anxiously waiting for the ending. i dont want it to end, but it is. hopefully there's a 2nd season.(i dont read the manga so dont tell me to). out of all the newly aired anime(which most of the ones im watching have 1 episode left), this is my favorite. I'm watching this episode a 2nd time, just because its that awesome!

P.S. im writing this on my sh**ty iPod, so bare with me...

Great episode, this episode felt like the finale. Wouldn't mind if they ended the anime here. Misaki's speech was amazing. I can understand why the audience all stood up for Sakurasou. I would do the same.

MANY TEARS WERE SHED!!! ;_; Best episode of Sakurasou, HANDS DOWN! This episode was animated beautifully, everything was so perfect. Misaki's speech was so touching and the OST fit so well. Very emotional, really hit me hard. When the OP song came on as Sorata was shouting on the stage it made me so happy. Getting all the students to be against the demolition of Sakurasou, heck yeah! It was very thoughtful of Rita to make those cherry blossom badges/pins. That song at the end was so sweet. :) Also, I loved those Rita X Ryuunosuke scenes. <3

Okay it's time to admit that Misaki has completely stolen the show, for me she's one of the best female char of the season. What a touching speech, this ep is the best episode, the highlight of entire series and it will be never forgotten.

All the flashbacks fit very well with every words, the character's expression, all were perfect. And I didn't know Misaki could pull out something great like that. Whoever wrote that speech deserves to get praised. Btw, how sweet looking at Ryuunosuke and Rita <3

And all the drama ... special thanks to Okada Mari, she did a perfect job at the series composition role, she just knows how to focus on emotional impacts. (Zetsuen no Tempest is also one of my fav along with Sakurasou, and she is the series composition for both of them)
