Kotoura-san episode 12

I don’t get the Japanese, I just don’t. They start off great sometimes, but why is it these things end so poorly? I never really understood that. I’m not saying that’s always the case. I’m just saying that it happens a lot, about seven to eight out of ten times.

[HorribleSubs] Kotoura-san - 12 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.42_[2013.03.29_23.03.41]This is the final episode, we all know that, yet nothing gets resolved. Mori is still alone, just as usual, Yuriko and goggles Daichi won’t be getting together any time soon, and Haruka and Yoshihisa aren’t doing that much better either. What is with this ending? It started out perfectly; lots of drama, romance and new-found friendship, but it ended very abruptly. I’m very disappointed.

I must say that I always knew Mori would kind of be a loose end when it came down to the romance department. You can’t have five characters when it comes to a romantic comedy where all the characters have somebody. At least one of those characters will be left out of the loop and end up alone. That’s just how it goes, unless there’s some twisted story where the protagonist ends up with two girlfriend (that know about each other). I would definitely watch that.

Man, that woman is so annoyingly weak. She clearly wants to be with her daughter, yet she chooses to be aggressive and rude, just to keep Haruka at bay. That’s just sad; to be afraid of your own daughter.

So yeah, the ending was rather disappointing. I had hoped to see at least one good kiss, just one, but no… Not even that much happened. It is really sad how Kotoura-san dropped in ratings during these past few weeks. I guess people are quite disappointed in this show as well, and who can blame them?
