You hear it. This ending was just textbook perfection! I don’t even need to say much more because any Kimikiss fan would have already watched this by now whether they understand it or not. But for those unlucky ones who didn’t, here is a word from me. It is a PERFECT end!
Fires of buring passion! MOEEEEE!
And what is an end without a kiss?
(No seriously, that was what ran through my mind at the time).
This ending is just perfect. I couldn’t ask for more how well they managed to wrap things up so nicely. I was afraid that it may be rushed seen as it was pretty messy still in ep 24 but surprisingly, they stuck to their own usual pace and it came out on top. Nothing rushed, no crap generated and solid conclusion. Now if there was anything I want to change, it would have to be for it to have more of an epilogue. BUT! My hopes rest on ep 25.
Kouichi x Yumi
HA! Now this was something I predicted wrongly. So it turns out that Kouichi did grow some balls and it was him who broke off with Yumi. But funnily enough, she had been expecting this day to come and so she wasn’t “mouth of gap” and throwing a tantrum or something (unlike other girls ). She was accepting of the fact that Kouichi has loved Mao for a long time and even told him to lift his head when he bowed in an apologetic manner. Well, Mao did try to give all her hope onto Yumi, as we can see in a flashback, but she knew that Kouichi will have no one other than Mao.
What a strong girl, I hope Yumi gets a good partner later in life. One thing I did laugh at was that Kouichi actually remembered his declaration to Yumi when she first told him that she was leaving town. Now I know for a fact that a lot of males suffer for memory loss so it is GREAT to see that Kouichi is acting more like a real person. They say that elephants don’t forget.
Kouichi x Mao
Sorry…but I need a moment to finish bouncing off walls.
Finally! These two are together. Indeed it has been a long journey but they are finally together. And what’s more? They finally did a full blown kiss! Nothing more to complain about, this was just perfect.
As I’ve said, Kouichi growing some balls was a surprise. I am really happy that we are able to see such a strong headed male lead. Indeed he did make mistakes by prolonging this confession but dam, at least he did it at last.
Mao tried to give up but she was just in denial. The campfire scene proved the point. She is crazy for Kouichi.
Mao x Kai
Kai you fricking legend! I love youuuuuuu~
Yes, Kai is another person I wish good luck with his love life.
Kazuki x Futami
Now this was the pairing I was unsure of. As we know, Futami isn’t the most stable of all characters. She needs love, care and attention. But if you can provide her that then you will score one of the biggest treasures known to man. Yes, she has been hiding but with the help from Asuka, she has come to understand why he experiment is a failure. This is because Human emotions cannot be predicted or tested.
She also kisses Kazuki (again) but this time it has meaning behind it. Oh my god I nearly broke the desk cheering them on.
Kazuki x Asuka
Well, it wasn’t to be. I feel sorry for Asuka but I can understand why she lost to Futami (me = Futami fanboy).
Even so she is also another great character in this awesome series. She never caught the jealousy disease (highly contagious amongst females) and she never did anything to backstab. She even helps Futami out by explaining to her that she should not let go. Just Perfect.
Hiiragi x Whats-her-name-tsundere-girl
Now I wish that the series was longer so that his side of the story can be covered. Oh well.
Overall this episode is just as perfect as I make I sound. I rarely am this satisfied with an ending but boy, Kimikiss is one of those rare anime that makes you feel awesome inside. The final moments weren’t as anti climatic as I thought but we are lacking an epilogue. Let’s hope we can get more when the last DVD is released.
But for now, lets take a look at the grand fireworks display. *cries* I am so sad to see this go ;__;
