THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Knowing that Sayaka is being controlled, Ureshiko leaves Tatsumi, transforms, and flies out. Chane and Hermes, in crow form, block her path and attack her, but she is saved when Valentine comes to help her. Bruga joins the fray and engages Valentine in a fight. She lands a hit, but quickly retreats afterwards knowing that she’s gone too far. Yuki, before she disappears to Realm, gives Ureshiko one more present in the form of materializing Tatsumi on Ureshiko’s broomstick. Sayaka, free of hypnosis, realizes what she’s doing.

Since she can’t seem to stop the spell or take off the ring, she can only think about what type of world she creates. Remembering Yuki’s words of wanting to keep things the same, she starts to understand what she has to do. After seeing the skies brighten, Ureshiko worries about her actions’ effect on Cruje. Unsure of what sort of world Cruje will to create, Ureshiko doesn’t want to lose Tatsumi. He reassures her that he won’t disappear, and they share a hug and then a kiss.

However, Tatsumi soon fades away as a bright light overcomes the current world. When Ureshiko wakes up, she finds Tatsumi, Oba-chan, and Freya waiting for her. The world Cruje created is still the same one as the one her mother did. At school, Sayaka’s friends seem to remember a fire, but the school is completely intact. At a celebration of Tamotsu’s new book, Tatsumi approaches the author and asks him to give up Ureshiko, saying that he loves her. Tamotsu punches him, but later smiles and tells him to take care of her happiness. Ureshiko voices over several shots of the town, explaining that that her mother created this world known as Wonderland and that this town will never disappear.

So they showed the same transformation sequence for Ureshiko that they’ve been using this entire series. The finale of Oku-sama wa Mahou Shoujo doesn’t disappoint with great animation, great music, and the kiss we’ve been building up to for the entire series now. This ends how you’d think it would: Sayaka doesn’t really change anything, Tatsumi and Ureshiko kiss, and Tamotsu gives her up. But for the lack of any real big surprises, they made up for in quality. The music crescendos when Tatsumi and Ureshiko finally kiss, making that quite a powerful scene.

I want to watch this but after reading that, I sorta want to pass this anime. A husband is pretty much forced to give up on his wife.......that is f*cked up, she chooses the new guy over the husband who fell in love with her and married her but wasn't given any "physical" affection because she will lose her powers.

This sucks.....imo.

I know this anime is probably really good but the thought is quite painful.

Quite a nice show if you ignore the weird transformation fanservice.

I'm surprised by mostly happy ending. But did Ureshiko really lose her powers? Because she did not transform immediately after the kiss.
