THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Overall, they followed the manga ending. Ayumi makes her choice between the brothers and the choice is of course obvious. Everything gets resolved nicely. Kei and Kusuda get together but still bicker like crazy. Sogabe is so cute, to change for Chikura, who is also so cute. I have to say Mamoru didn't change much at all. He was probably the most boring character. Too little of Koyoi. And definitely not enough Misaki.

And NO RAIN SCENE! They better make an OVA for Misaki and Yuuji. Go read the manga people. (Chapter 31 I think.)

It's the END!!! =(

Solid 8/10. Would be 9/10 if they had an extra episode for Misaki and Yuuji. I'm disappointed in your J.C. Staff although you did a great job with this adaptation. =)

Lovable happy ending. A bit too predictable (who didn't think that Yamamoto's group would hear Kusuda?) but still, it was fun. Needs more Misaki. Onto manga now.

9/10 for me, because I hadn't enjoyed a slice of life/romance anime like this for a long time. It has been a rather enjoyable path, and I'm not going to let anybody's opinion change it.

What the hell... Damn it, I knew it would be like this, but I kept hoping it wouldn't be so -_-

I demand Ova for the rain scene!!!. Scratch that, Ovas for Misaki alone including the classroom scene and rain scene.

Great episode. I really loved confession scene. It was so beautiful. Also scene when Kusuda, Sogabe and Zaitsu were running to ocean. Soundtrack which played during this moment was so beautiful.

Overall, I'd give solid 9/10. J.C. Staff did really good job on Hatsukoi Limited. Quality of this series is pretty good, especially soundtracks.

We all know that all these first loves won't last, right?
Everyone, please agree with me.

I basically hate all the middle-school kids (except Zaitsu) with their dumb take on love. On the other hand, for some reason I like the high school students. At the end, I'm still only a Koyoi fan.

J.C. Staff did a good adaptation, so I guess the ending was sufficient.

The final episode was good, things all kinda got resolved and such. The Chikura x Sogable acquaintance is cute. And the older Arihara is off of his sister now, but I guess that's ok if Misaki can be happy as a result, looks like I'm going to stick a lollipop into a girl's mouth next chance I get.

The series was refreshing, sometimes it got a little fanservice heavy but it was comically entertaining. 8/10 because Misaki is win.

Sorry bro, it's Anime, where happily-ever-after is a given. Sad, I know, but that's how it works.

Be careful not to stick it in too deep. You don't want her to choke and die... oh crap, it's the police again, gotta run!

Deliberate cut of this scene!

OVA of the bath house trip would be awesome.

Word by word. While I got disappointed in others, this remained my favorite of the season.

Now I just have to choose between Enomoto and So--cute! for favorite characters.

Alright ending and most status/relationships were resolved but it was completely predictable given how everything led up to this point. Overall 7/10 because I actually enjoyed the characters.

Seeing everyone talk about this "rain" scene I may have to check out the manga.

Ah, it's over..
A great but too short show, too bad it can't continue, unless they go for OVA's, but that might ruin it.. Sogabe actually looked cute with his new haircut. :p
8/10.

And I hope for more releases of sphere, I can't get enough of the OP.

Couldn't imagine any better one.
Maybe Kusuda could act more mature in front of Enomoto, but boys are boys;)

LOL okay I loved when the boys confessed, that was cute (and of course they would be there..) I didn't read the manga so I didn't know there was a rain scene until I came here and clicked on the link for the manga. I think that would have been cute to add :)
So sad it had to end, I heard there is a special going to air? not really sure. It would even be cool if they made a movie but.. alas highly doubtful :(
Overall I was happy with the way it ended, most of the couples got together, yet it still left it open for more.. so who knows!

This story is the definition of FAIL. All of the relationships except for one are blundering excuses for love, there's hardly any resolution and even in the case of Kusada and Enomoto, they just end up bickering like before when it could have been something special. Hardly anyone ends up truly happy, there's no relationship progress outside of confessions (even from couples that got together before the last episode) and there's not one single kiss and this is supposed to be a romance story. Ugh.

Compared to Kimikiss Pure Rouge, it's closest counterpart, this anime/manga is garbage. I'm glad it's over.

Lol the meaning of the anime name is limited love or first love or something along those lines.

Its more about the trials and troubles of crushes, first loves, confessions.

There wasn't any childhood friend scenarios which was refreshing.

Perhaps western audiences can't understand subtlety in certain japanese anime?

It was reasonably faithful to the manga, cept for cutting out of a few good scenes.

A really well done series regardless of having a bajillion characters. Though I wanted to see Ayumi and Misao together at the end ;__;

9/10

Wait, so that was the manga's ending as well? Damn, and here I hoped I could peek at the manga to see how it ended.

It was alright, but somehow the relationships seemed... I don't know, rushed? Forced? Should I just make up a new word to describe them?

For example, the way Yuuji randomly ended up going after Misaki after having seemingly no interest in her before. And why? Because he realized his little sister likes someone? I mean, just... What? Did he seriously not realize his sister didn't like the way he acted before that?

And some other couples were just... pretty much left hanging. I mean, Sogabe and Chikura? Rika and Terai? Watase and Takei (am I the only one who would've really, really loved to see more of these two?) I mean, I don't mean I would've wanted an "everyone's happy" ending, quite the contrary. Just that... we really didn't get any kind of ending with those couples, not good or bad.

Well, it was only twelve episodes long, though. And as I said, it was a "good" anime, and even though I wasn't supposed to watch this in the first place, I don't regret watching it. Just, yeah, romance anime aren't exactly my favorites in the first place.

This series is about first love, so I do think they did a pretty good job with it and the ending was satisfying. Nice to see Kusuda and Kei finally admit their feelings for one another. But why Kusuda would continue run away from Kei I'll never know. LOL. They were easily the 2 least likeable characters when the series first started, but both ended up being among my favorites. A bit sad to see this one go, but that's how it goes.

It bothers me a little that it had only 12 episodes so it felt a bit rushed. But overall it was very enjoyable series to watch. 8/10

I hope the'll make a second season, or at least some OVA episodes^^

9/10

god, i dont think there could be a better way to end this serie. i totally loved it, a really nice happy end. and i think that everyone experienced a hatsukoi. and yeah we probably did that one or other thing that was strange and crazy.
"unrequited love is important to step into the future", i really like this sentence.
so in the end 9/10 for me, nearly a 10 though/

To everyone who feels like it was rushed or there should be a second season:

That's just it guys, that's exactly how the Manga ended and they only left out details from the Manga, nothing grand. It only has 32 chapters, so don't get your expectations up. :p

But I'm surprised so many people like the ending, I've experienced a much worse reaction when the Manga ended. It's probably because this last episode was made extremely well and it's not as weird for an Anime like this to end like this after 12 episodes. A weekly Manga with so many characters ending after 32 chapters was just too unusual I guess.

(I did like the ending but I'm saying this as a neutral spectator this time)

nice ep


Enomoto x Kusuda ftw

That was a nice little show,nothing epic, nothing special, but it was good

I loved the unique character design,where the eyes and haircolors were looking more realistic, the girls were hot, too

This series was a great surprise and definetely surpased my expectations. Nice slice of life romance with interesting characters and a straightforward plot. I found myself waiting for a new ep each week and eagerly anticipated the next. Great show now bring on the OVA!
