Well I loved the Anime in general and it had some extremely strong episodes. Unfortunately though, I really didn't like the conclusion all that much. Still 9/10 for me (at least here on MAL, personally I would say 8.5/10)
A question for experienced people and who know about the novel:
Is there a lot more material left? Or in general: How likely is it that there will be a second season? Judging from just the ending of the Anime it would be very likely. I hope somebody can tell me! :-)

Wait another question: Did Jin and Misaki really marry now AND live next doors now or was this supposed to be a joke? Really want somebody to clear that up for me.

This episode was more enjoyable than the last many. That attempted kiss scene between Mashiro and Kanda was pretty funny.

Overall I think this anime would have been a lot more enjoyable if the plot didn't seem so forced and badly executed.

Final rating: 6/10.
Go ***k yourself.

No girl in this show can hold a candle to Misaki. She stole entire episodes, like this last one for example, with just 5 minutes air time. Fucking great, actually, excluding the main trio, every single character was amazing. Story too, overall, solid 10/10 from me.

All in all, I think it was pretty bad, there were some pretty good episodes, but the problem is that there were even more horrible one. I didn't like most of the dramas, there were a lot of overreactions, Sorata and Rita in particular annoyed me on more than one occasion. The MisakixJin relationships was completely laughable. Mashiro was the only redeeming quality of this show.

4/10.

Well.

On the first episode, I fell in love with Mashiro -- I'm still in love.

It wasn't as good as it could have been, but it was definitely something I looked to watching every week. So I'd be lying if I said I did not enjoy Sakurasou. It was lacking ... but who the hell cares when all that matters is that Mashiro is cute as fack.

Well done Sakurasou Well done

Endings can drasticallly change an outlook on a series. It's the show's last chance to win you over or lose you. In Sakurasou's case I'm happy to say the former. Over this whole series Sorata has changed immensely as a person from his apathetic snappy persona to his developed dream driven character that he finishes with. All of the residents too had great character progression and I enjoyed seeing them develop as people. Mashiro Shiina was the catalyst for the whole series and she was a joy to watch too. Her hard working demeanor forced everyone in Sakurasou to re evaluate what it is they really want in life. Doesn't help she's a riot and was always destined to win (OTP ftw sorry Aoyama shippers : / ))

At it's best the show was heartfelt and profound but at it's worst it was a Korean Drama. What I was saying about Sorata played a part into the worst. He learns about who he is as a person but he comes to the same self revelations multiple times which FRUSTRATED ME A LOT as a viewer.

Sakurasou had above average production values for a JC Staff show with some truly breathtaking visuals at times. My favorite is the one when Sorata is running up the metaphorical stairs chasing Mashiro.

Overall, I'm glad I stuck with the show. A 7 out of 10

Other Thoughts
- The new Kouhai seem interesting characters, guess I'll have to read the source material to see how they turn out
- Um lol at Misaki for turning in the marriage form!? Does Jin know?
-DAYS OF DASH!! Couldn't agree with a more fitting ending

I enjoyed this a lot. The drama could've been played out better, but damn, this conclusive ending really sold the series for me. 8/10 I wouldn't mind a season two/OVA with the new residents, though it seems unlikely with the only average sales that it's getting.

Mari Okada please don't touch anime ever again.

Good last episode. ROTFLMAO when the two newbies met for the first time the people they'd be living with. The only thing that could have made the episode better was if Sorata had had the balls to kiss Shiina (even though I'm a Aoyama fan, I still feel she can do better than Sorata anyway).

Yeah Misaki for taking matters into her own hands!

Just gonna take the post I made in the episode 23 thread, since my opinion of the series essentially hasn't changed since then. Honestly, this show could have been much better if its central focus was the camaraderie between the residents of Sakurasou, because we all have strong bonds with our friends and can easily relate to how inseparable they are. Instead, the series decided to shift its focus to developing romantic relationships that feel hollow and contrived because they aren't thoroughly explored. The time spent on the Nanami x Sorata scenes in the second half could have been better used elsewhere, because it was evident at the start that Sorata had already bought tickets aboard the SS Mashiron. The series promised a romance with the reoccurring theme of friendship, but felt lacking in both departments because the time devoted to each aspect was insufficient.

5/10

I enjoyed this anime, I was hoping to pick up reading the light novels but seems they haven't been translated to English yet. All thought it's unlikely I would like to see a second season, or an OVA with the Blue-ray release.

Overall I gave this anime a 9/10.

Best JC Staff show since Toradora. Most of their other adaptations turn into complete mess though, like Little Busters compared to the awesomeness of its counterpart visual novel.

The drama, which Little Busters anime should have excelled at, was done way better in Sakurasou for some reason. I blame the staff selection, because when the director of Killl Me Baby was chosen to do a Keydrama visual novel anime adaptation, you know that something just went wrong.

For Sakurasou, the director was an unexperienced woman that did wonders with it. I love her for her awesome work on it! Cheers, I will be surely checking out more future works of her.

Loved it, the ending was well done, it's purpose was to indicate that there's more to come! :D I can't wait for the 2nd season or an OVA of some sort. This was the only anime to not disappoint me over the two seasons, giving it a 9/10 :3

I thought that it was pretty great overall. The final episode wrapped up with a "full circle" summary of all their experiences throughout these 24 episodes beautifully at the end. I love it when an anime does that. It emphasizes the broader theme of the show rather than what happened near or at the end, which is great. A solid 8/10.

Good episode with progress on 3+ romances (counting the teacher and game developer as the +). I'd happily watch another season to cover more of the LN series if it happened.

Oh there has to be a season 2 with all the new residents in Sakurasou! New residents new drama! Poor Yuuko couldn't fit into Mashiro's painting.. T.T

slightly sad to see that some of you are still quarreling about who's the better one when it doesn't really matter because they all made the series :/

Hope to see a season 2! Didn't read the LN but I hope we won't be seeing more harem :)

Sakurasou turned out to be pretty freaking good. Might pick up the light novels, when they are going to be fully translated. The new kouhais, despite their relatively short screentime, were interesting characters to add in the cast. I want to see more of them and how they are going to interact with the other residents of Sakurasou.

They left the ending pretty open for a second season; maybe in a few years if we're lucky?

Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo: J.C Staff's best effort since Toradora.

So I'm giving this show a solid 9/10.

Beautiful ending! Nothing crazy happened in it, but it was still a great way to end. I love how the first half of the episode was about saying goodbye, and then the second half was about welcoming the newcomers ^^ Then the ending part when the song came up was a really nice recap of everything that had happened, so many emotions during the ED.

I laughed at the part when the two newcomers arrived at Sakurasou, it's definitely not something they will ever forget! A great way to welcome them, even though it wasn't planned. And then all the cute parts with the kissing XD I'm not too surprised that Sorata didn't really end up with anyone, but Hikari! How could you? Mashiro and Sorata were almost there. But actually, it was nice to Mashiro kissing Sorata on the cheek >< I'm going to really miss this!

This was a superb ending to a superb series. At the start of the second half of the season I thought they were going to get all the way to vol. 8, but it's great that they decided to slow things down and make the adaptation more complete. The departure scenes were quite sweet -- just note how Ryuunosuke had admitted that he wasn't going to forget about Rita, albeit in a roundabout way. It kind of sucked that Sorata was kiss-blocked by Hikari, but there was no way the romance was going to be settled here anyway. At the end with the addition of three new characters, second season will be a blast too. Gin, on the other hand, seems to be the only one who'll be missing...

Can't wait for this series to get a sequel. Anyone know how well this is doing in Japan? Sales drive production, after all.

Amazing anime, my favorite so far. I hope we will be able to see a second season, but it seems to be a bit doubtful for me that there would be another season. Well, now it's time for me to read the light novel I guess.

not a bad ending. I'm more or less just sad I don't have anything to watch on Monday anymore.

I liked the newcomers though. I also liked that they didn't just dive Mashiro and Sorata into a relationship. Since it took 8 volumes to get them there anyways. Also loved the murderous intent scene.

Lol, win. I like both Shiina and Nanami, but I too have a slight preference for Nanami since she works harder and invests more time in both her work and her love. But I do like both to a close degree.

One compliant I have with the series is that they never actually show the non-inheiranty talented hardworkers (Sorata & Nanami) actually succeding. Sure, the journey is what matters, and they'll keep trying hard to achieve their dreams - which is not by any means a bad moral to take from this - but it is kind of weird to see neither of them make a definite step forward towards their goal (I know the experience they gained is actually valuable both in the practical and emotional/life/friendship dimensions, but still not exactly a definite step up). This, however, is a common occurance in reality and I apploaud the author for this. Even in the face of (repeated) defeats, even with much long effort (talking about Nanami Aoyama here), they don't give up -> A lesson taken farther in this story than most.

Another complaint I have is with the charaters' (story's) treatment of unfairness in the world or with the (at least relatively short term) issue of hard working. Several times in the series, either Sorata Kanda or Nanami Aoyama face the reality that their hard work wasn't enough for some reason and get depressed/disillusioned, BUT that issue is never subsequently addressed (as far as I can tell). They just sidetrack it into "I was selfishly using Shiina as a outlit for my frustration, so I should stop being angry" or "Wow, Shiina was looking out for me, so I shouldn't be mad at her", etc. In essence, the characters rebound from their sadness using another unrelated issue, without tackling the issue of their hard work not bringing results (obviously you should keep trying, but the story doesn't, at least to me, make that seem like an "answer" and in fact they seem to only show repeated examples of the naturally talented succeeding in the time frame of the story -> Shiina even serendipitously got a job offer at that game company, notwithstanding her manga or worldwide painting career).

But nevertheless, I greatly enjoyed this anime and will give it a 9 (perhaps a 10 under further consideration and/or a rewatch). Certainly one of the best of its type, with only the above (plus that Nanami is seemingly doomed to sadly fail in her love quest, with Sorata not even glancing her way once, even though she worked so hard --> Another example of the hardworker not succeeding...kind of; but like I said, I do like Shiina, just that Nanami...deserved it more) possibly holding it back, in my personal judgement and tastes, from a 10.

it was ok - i just felt like they could of done a much better job (seeing how well done the rest of the series was)- and it felt way too rushed

sadly this ending takes my rating from a 10/10 to a 8/10

but still all in all a very good show and i will miss the joy it brought to Mondays. This show will always hold a spacial place in my heart.
