That is exactly how I feel. This anime has been a shipping rollercoaster. I first was rooting for Sorata x Mashiro, then I was rooting for Sorata x Mashiro and Sorata x Nanami, then I finally realized where my shipping fangirl’s heart truly belonged…it belonged in the Sorata x Nanami camp!!!Quote:
Sorata and Mashiro become a couple in the 10th novel, so I hope that once Nanami gets pushed out of the picture, Sorata and Mashiro’s relationship develops enough to not feel forced anymore and enough to convince me of why they are the winning pairing.
Yes, she is. Moreover, she is one of my favorite anime girls. That is why it is so sad to see her losing so badly in this series. She failed her audition and failed at making her dream come true, she lost the guy she loves, and she will have to return home and start from zero. All the girls (Mashiro, Misaki and Rita) will have a happy ending, why Nanami can’t have one?Quote:
Well…since heartbreak is part of life it will be for Mashiro to experience a bit of that as well…Quote:
I wouldn’t like for Sorata to not be himself just because he is afraid of hurting Mashiro…that wouldn’t be a real and honest relationship.
I had forgotten about this song but Nanami’s voice is so sweet and beautiful!!
Maybe she will? We don't know yet.Quote:
Very true. But some things shouldn't be said...Quote:
Yes that was so adorable. I look forward to rewatching that episode some day in the future. x3Quote:
I'm still not happy. The train drowning Soratas confession was so cliche... Even more because only Nanami heared it loud and clear who was again my main heroine of the episode.
It is awesome and sad how nice she is... Stopping her confession midway and changing it to a "I'm so glad I met you" was very hard to watch... Nanami knew she had lost but watching her smile after that left me kinda sad...
Don't get me wrong, I loved the talk between Mashiro and Sorata but it would've been better if ALL of his words had reached her.
She was over the top cute though... Can't help but loving this girl. :3 I need to find a good picture of Mashiro with her teary eyes. :3 She looked soooo cute there.
I think this was the first time she really showed emotions without holding something back.
On a side note...
How can ANYBODY leave Misakis car without lurching?
Why is Jin so damn badass?
My heart broke a little...

Touché, or at least they shouldn’t be said like that…there are better ways to express your feelings.Quote:
This episode had me on the verge of tears, I was very close to cry during various time in this episode and all of those times had to do with Nanami. Nanami was simply amazing in this episode. She shined the brightest, I agree.Quote:
I adored her confession; it was so real, so heartfelt, so unselfish, so sincere, so full of love, she confessed her feelings for Sorata completely and without the need of saying “I love you”. Sorata is so dense that he couldn’t fully understand what Nanami’s words truly meant. Nanami is such a strong, kind and amazing girl! I love her even more after watching this episode. She loved Sorata so much that she didn’t want to burden him with her confession; all that she wanted was for him to be happy with the girl he loves. Her confession was very close to make me cry. I have huge amount of respect and admiration for Nanami, she is the best without a doubt!Quote:
Sorata’s confession was very heartfelt as well….and Mashiro’s words were very touching, but my favorite confession was Nanami’s. Her confession was so deep and moving.Quote:
I liked the fact that Mashiro showed some emotion and was able to express her emotions. She really loves all the people at Sakurasou, her painting was worth a thousand words!Quote:
The Nanami x Mashiro moments were very sweet and touching as well. Nanami is such a smart, kind and caring girl. She has a heart of gold.
I also liked the Rita x Akasaka moments, they looked so cute together.
And it seems Jin and Masaki have planned something to save Sakurasou.
Chihiro-sensei is awesome!! She really cares about her students; the slap that she gave to that guy whose name I can’t remember was priceless!
This entire episode broke my heart! Nanami!!!Quote:

Very understandable. And again i can't believe how strong Nanami is. To take all that head on and still be able to smile with the brightness of the sun.Quote:
I do think she wanted to quote the line from her voice acting again and confess to Sorata in a manner even the most dense guy would understand.Quote:
This was the first show I really had a hard time on finding out which girl I should root for. So it's even more depressing for me because she lost in every single way... But at least she gave her best.
Yes it was very touching but why let a train stop them now? This is something I will never be able to comprehend I guess...Quote:
But I agree. Nanami takes the crown.
Her painting was awesome... But she didn't draw herself ... That was said...Quote:
Mashiro was so girly there. x) I loved that.Quote:
Nanami is one of the best friends somebody could ever wish for.
It's so funny when the guy is the Tsundere... XDQuote:
i look forward to it. It has to be awesome.Quote:
Yes. She cares for all of them even if she doesn't want to show it. Chihiro-sensei is a great teacher after all.Quote:
There There... :'(Quote:
Nanami is very strong and has a huge heart and she really cares about Sorata and Mashiro…she is a extremely kind girl, she is amazing!Quote:
Yes, her first intention was to confess to Sorata using the lines from her audition but she stopped midway because she realized that Sorata’s heart didn’t belong to her, it belonged to Mashiro.Quote:
I had a really hard time too, but the ship I decided to root for in the end was Nanami x Sorata, mainly because of Nanami. And…in a way…I didn’t like how Mashiro had all the success while Nanami…couldn’t win at one single thing. That was kind of unfair.Quote:
Because Sorata confesses to Mashiro later in the story and because it wasn’t the right moment for Sorata to confess to Mashiro since the main focus was on Nanami during that scene, the focus was on how Nanami reacted to hearing Sorata confessing his feelings to Mashiro.Quote:
It was sad indeed.Quote:
Nanami is a wonderful girl; Sorata, Mashiro and Misaki are very lucky to have a friend like her in their lives.Quote:
Funny and cute!Quote:
She really is!Quote:
Btw, here’s an awesome Nanami x Sorata AMV that made me , it expresses Nanami’s feelings very well.Quote:
They would make a good couple.
Maybe a bit too kind for her own good... :/Quote:
It really was. She got friendzoned and lost her dream for the time being... But at least she got some kind of closure.Quote:
but a confession should be something great. With this it became a torturing device for Nanami... that wasn't fair at all...Quote:
That makes me sad again... Such a wonderful girl... *.*Quote:
Well…I like her as she is. I know being too good worked to her disadvantage but I wouldn’t change her a bit.Quote:
Maybe the author thought that was the only way she could make Nanami give up completely on Sorata…Quote:
We were refering to the confession scene in the recent episode 22, while they were searching for Mashiro.
You could say that. At least out of Nanamis view its a love tradegy. :'(Quote:
Well I changed from rooting for Mashiro to rooting for Nanami. She just won my heart. It's a pity she couldn't win Soratas.Quote:
But well the guy loves Mashiro after all.
Did you mean 23? Because there are only 22 at the moment right?Quote:
For those interested baka tsuki has the first three volumes translated here
i would actually buy this light novel if i could find it for sale in english
---------- Post added at 08:37 AM ---------- Previous post was at 08:29 AM ----------
i was pulling for nanami because she worked so hard she still came up short
she didnt deserve so much heartache
it is a very good anime because of how emotionally involved it makes us veiwers
---------- Post added at 10:38 AM ---------- Previous post was at 08:37 AM ----------
it almost seems like the romance between the secondary characters serves as a consolation prize, we are all happy to see jinXmasaki and ryussokeXrita
but as with many romance titles, someone has to wind up dissapointed at the end, who knows we may all be i for a shocker in the next two episodes, i cannot find the light novel translated past volume 3 so i couldnt even spoil it for myself

Hands down one of the best episodes of the whole show if not THE best.
Their friendship is just outstanding and I was impressed how much emotions Misaki could convey to the whole audience and me. It was nice to have those little flashback so we could see again what they've been through. Really an magnificent speech. And I have to agree with Misaki. For me it was the same reason regarding Mashiro. Her awesome eyes. *.*
Furthermore it was awesome to see Nanamis adorable crying face directly after Dragon mentioned it. x'D
Even more awesome how Misaki teased Rita and Dragon a bit while they shared an emotional moment. :3
Thoses teachers were real scumbags and the principal was the worst. it was epic how Jin and the rest outwitted him like that. He deserved it.
Dragon kicked even more ass while stating the obvious again. Good work.
The whole gym looked very pretty while the cherryblossoms flew. :')
Sakurasou is saved... I'm so happy about that. x')
At the end Sorata was the king of Tsukkomi again. :'D Heartwarming how the staff was able to fit some gags in the episode.
On top of that I love that graduation song. An easy melody and and easy text but so touching. Even I could sing along. x'D
Nice to see how good Mashiro and Nanami look together. Like they have been nothing else but the best friends since the beginning. Seeing Mashiro showing so many emotions is soooooo cute too. :3
Only one episode left. looking at the "preview" it will be a Sorata x Mashiro episode. I hope they will end it well.

And I’m even happier to find out you really enjoyed watching this series.
We were referring to the “confession” scene in episode 22.Quote:
Sky and I experienced that as well. I fist rooted for Mashiro x Sorata then I rooted for both Mashiro x Sorata and Nanami x Sorata but in the end my shipping heart realized that the pairing I really wanted to root for was Nanami x Sorata, mainly because of Nanami.Quote:
It is really sad indeed.Quote:
Nanami is so awesome, isn’t she?Quote:
Or achieve her dream.Quote:
Yep, in the end in all comes down to who is the girl Sorata loves and that girl is Mashiro.Quote:
ITA! I hope the author of the LN gives Nanami the happy ending she totally deserves.Quote:
She realized that a long time ago…but she confirmed it in episode 22.Quote:
She knew that she had lost her chance and she loved Sorata so much that she didn’t want to make him feel awkward, she just wanted for him to be happy with Mashiro. Plus, she knew being rejected by Sorata would have been too much for her, she didn’t want to hear Sorata saying those words.Quote:
Mashiro x Sorata is canon and things won’t change [spoiler = LN] in the novel they are already dating[/spoiler] so our only hope is Miyahara-kun!!Quote:
---------- Post added at 08:21 PM ---------- Previous post was at 08:18 PM ----------
ITA! This episode was wonderfully done.Quote:
Misaki’s speech was so touching. I was very close to cry during her speech. Misaki is a great girl!Quote:
Nanami’s face was so cute!! And since you have mentioned Dragon, I loved Dragon’s reaction to Misaki’s speech. It was very sweet and moving seeing Dragon, a big tsundere, finally showing some emotion.Quote:
Rita x Akasaka ftw!!Quote:
Jin is very clever and smart! Misaki and Jin’s plan was ingenious and heartfelt, I liked it very much. ^_^Quote:
Dragon is awesome! Dragon has won big points with me during the last couple of eps and I now understand why Rita likes him so much.Quote:
I’m happy that Sakurasou won’t be demolished but I’m sad that Misaki and Jin won’t be there.Quote:
Very sweet and touching I agree.Quote:
I have to agree, they do look cute together.Quote:
I thought there were two more episodes before the end…Quote:
And Miyahara-kun was so awesome!! I really want a Nanami x Miyahara-kun pairing!!!

Indeed. Dragon blushing so much was new. He may not show it openly bu he loves all of them. And the "former freeloader" the most. x)Quote:
And he kept his cool like (almost) always. I doubt anyone would've so so calm in such a situation. It really was an outstanding plan they came up with.Quote:
So do I. His shell is breaking apart because he found new friend who he cares about and who care about him.Quote:
As they sad. They are Sakurasou... It isn't just an old building... The bonds they forged will never break apart.Quote:
To be honest this already felt like the last episode to me. I wonder how they are going to surpass such an awesome episode.Quote:
100% agree. He was a true hero too.Quote:
