Yes, the finale made me cry. It wasn't the shocked tears of Episode 24, but the tears that just keep flowing and won't stop. Basically, I've been doing a lot of crying today in the computer lab.
....I still can't believe that I watched the entire series in FIVE DAYS. Usually 26 episodes are more than enough, but this...feels too short. .__. Also, I believe this was the first time my OTP has been destroyed by its own canon. Yes, I am a bit disappointed, but the ending was still very beautiful and I am satisfied.
...That doesn't mean I don't want to rant, though. ( Collapse )
But as a whole, I think this anime has earned a spot on my favorites list. You know, it's interesting that from the first time I heard of it
, I knew that it would be something I'd like. And now, almost two years later, I finally got to watch it and it was even better than I expected.
For people who are interested, here's an excellent review
of the first half of the series. I'm also planning on buying the DVDs, it's such a classic. I'm also dying to get my hands on that soundtrack, because the opening and ending themes just won't get out of my head.
So, to end this post, I shall now go throw away my wet tissues and hum "Mizu no Madoromi"~
