Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai NEXT episode 12

And so it ends… Not! There is definitely going to be another season. There has to be, otherwise this must’ve been the worst ending in anime history, for sure. How could we call this an ending when nothing, nothing at all has ended?

[Mazui]_Boku_Ha_Tomodachi_Ga_Sukunai_NEXT_-_12_[202AA39D].mkv_snapshot_05.09_[2013.03.30_23.50.12]I already thought it was strange when Kodaka spent the first half with Aoi, that funny little red-head, and the student council president, a strange girl that seems to be quite ambitious. You don’t spend that much time on those characters during the very last episode, you just don’t, so that’s when I knew that this wasn’t the last we’ve seen of these guys.

Also, things took an even stranger turn when the rest took notice of Kodaka’s absence. So what? The guy decided to help out the student council with some of their chores, who cares? That’s no reason to abandon the club, which would prove that you only go there in the first place because Kodaka is usually there.

I love that character, but sometimes she really does get to you. Still, at least it answered one of my questions. I was wondering why she recorded Kodaka in the nurses office that day, I guess now we know. Well played, Rika-chan.

I’m going to leave things here, just like Yozora left at the very end. You call this an ending? All the characters part ways and one of them was so devastated that she actually left? Yeah… That has Japan written all over it. Only in Japan do you see these things. A normal person would’ve given the viewer a clue or at least a better ending (one that actually ends something). Oh well, I guess we can’t always get what we want…

    Agreed. What an atrocious ending. Not thinking of how much time was left in the episode, I started to see the ending as the fight between Rika and Kodaka drew to a close. I could see a real, GOOD ending on the horizon, where the group really finds a happy ending…
