This episode confirmed what I guessed last week: the climax of the episode The ending has already appeared . While last week’s episode wraps up the plot, the “loud releases” are all extras, the kind of low-key exchanges between characters you might see on a drama CD, not to mention some re-used footage that makes us Reminds me of that event season. Nothing significant happens, but it’s comforting to see the characters hang out after the dust has settled, like I’m reading the epilogue of a story. It’s a victory lap, showcasing

Kyoto Animation

Excellent animation and sound design last time.

When will it start, summer is just now Beginning. In the finale, the characters begin by saying that summer is almost over, an observation marked by the chirping of cicadas. This week’s story doesn’t go much further: first, they hang out at the Kyudo range, then they hang out at the festival that Masa has drawn them all to. But amidst all these casual interactions, each major story beat has time to revisit, wrap neatly, and tie a bow. By the end of the episode, I didn’t have any questions about any unresolved issues.

Although it feels like everyone’s The epilogues are methodically addressed, and that’s not to say none of them hit any emotional high notes. One of my favorites is when Ryohei finally shows his sister’s face – and it’s smiling. It used to be a very touchy subject when old rivals were cleared up, such as Manji (the younger of the red-haired twins from Kirisaki) and Minato bonded over target panic. Aki, Seiya, and Minato share soda again, only this time, Aki and Seiya resolve their territorial issue over Minato. When they exchange takoyaki in front of Minato’s relieved face, it’s clear that even our casual boys are aware of it.

In the fading summer Take it easy for the day, and each character can take a break from current problems. As the meme proverb goes, even Eisuke Nikaido is carefree, nourished and happy. His spirits were lifted by a timely text message from his uncle, who agreed to consider coaching the Tsujimine Kyudo team. Just like that, the toxicity of his inability to trust others began to dissipate, and his genuine smile offset the negative words he said without gnashing his teeth. At the festival, Minato told Seiya that Shu looks more like himself now (especially since his family issues are all conveniently resolved off-camera). But really, in this epilogue, everyone is more like their best selves. It’s like an epilogue to a story, revisiting each character and assuring you that everyone is fine.

The climax of the episode, if even Call it Winddance Boys, dressed like a Super Sentai in color-coded robes and matching bow grips. When he picks up his bow, everyone says something cool-sounding to show how much he’s grown as a person throughout the show. It’s not just a little cheesy, because of how unconsciously it’s real, like teens in the play, rather than how teens actually act. Their movements feel much more real: they prepare for the shot in a well-choreographed way, but the animation contains slight inconsistencies that make it feel so real. While each character is looking back on the season and joking our memories with re-used imagery, every tsurune’s voice carries this scene as it does in so many other scenes throughout the show.

Right at the end, when the team asked The camera bows, ostensibly to Masa, and says thank you, which feels like saying goodbye to the audience. It was almost like a theatrical curtain call, ending a long farewell. Will there be more crane sounds? If not, that’s a pretty good conclusion. We’ve come full circle since episode one. Minato and Masa meet again at the shrine (even Fuu the owl makes a brief cameo). Crane reminds Minato of his mission once again. Overall, the tone of this season was much more upbeat and better paced than last season, even if I found the ending to be a bit slow. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter what really happened, but who made it happen: “Practicing Kyudo has allowed me to meet a lot of people,” Minato told Masa. Now is the time to say goodbye and I realize I will miss these people terribly.
