「みつごは続くよどこまでも」 (Mitsugo wa Tsuzukuyo Doko Mademo)
“These Three Girls will keep going on and on”

I can’t believe such a great show is done already! Only after eight episodes, seven if you don’t consider the Gachi Rangers special, I have to live without my weekly dose of Hitoha, Futaba, and Mitsuba?! All in all, while I don’t want this show to end, I must admit that this final episode managed to wrap things up nicely — full of the funny gags I love which had me laughing until the final heart melting scene.

Starting strong with Yabecchi, I’m glad that this whole Gachi Rangers misunderstanding has finally been cleared up. I’ve felt so bad for Yabecchi since no one except Hitoha seemed to share his love for the Gachi Rangers. But after episode and episode of misunderstandings between the two, I was amazed when Hitoha finally cleared everything up. From that point on, I think the realization that the person who ridiculed him the most about the Gachi Rangers actually being their biggest fan probably broke something in Yabecchi’s mind.

I’m not sure what it was, but the class relay skit had me cracking up pretty hard. Whether it was Yoshioka’s epic face, Chiba’s fake love letter to Satou, or Mitsuba’s running sound effects, something about strategically using everyone’s unique traits was pure genius (I tip my hat to you Chiba). But something besides the humor caught my attention — Mitsuba and Sugisaki almost admitting to be friends. After fighting against each other for so long, it’s pretty obvious that they’d probably make really good friends — which is why I’ve been hoping that the two would give up trying to one up each other and just become friends already. Even though they were pretty embarrassed after they realized it, I thought it was pretty cute to see both of them act so innocent.

But the best skit had to be the final one. While I was expecting something close to last season’s, where there’d be some kind of heartwarming scene between our trio and Soujirou, I wasn’t expecting a heart attacking inducing, cuteness overloaded flashback. Little Hito, Fuu, and Micchan were too much for me to handle. Matching outfits, cute hair styles, no snarky Mitsuba, innocent Hitoha, extra cute Futaba — I was on the verge of passing out. To make it even better they even included Soujirou in his prime, looking like a super hunk. With the episode coming to a close while mimicking the past, except with Futaba carrying Soujirou, I was so happy to watch the show have a happy ending — to be truthfully honest, I was half expecting a police officer to ruin the whole scene.

Final Impressions:

Seeing how next week’s episode is supposed to be a “secret” episode from season one, I’ll do the final impressions now. First off, what’s with the horribly low view rate on these posts? I feel the need to go and throw episodes of Mitsudomoe into people’s computers. Personally I don’t know where the argument about the art style deferring people away falls — we’re dealing with sixth graders aren’t we? Plus if you wanted realism, Futaba’s drawings are pretty good.

Seriously though, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this second season of Mitsudomoe. I personally thought that the first episode was pretty awesome, especially since I’ve always wanted to see what a whole episode of the Gachi Rangers would be like. Seeing how there were only seven more episodes after that, I’m close to saying that it’s probably the perfect amount for the show. I vaguely remember that during the first season, I felt that some of the episodes were really weak. While some of the episodes during this season weren’t particularly funny, I can’t recall one that stuck out horribly.

While I’m sad that Mitsudmoe is coming to an end, I’m happy in the fact that we even got a second season. While this show might not be everyone’s cup of tea, I’d honestly recommend this show just to about anyone. From the humor and heartwarming scenes to the dirty and really dirty jokes, I think anyone would be able to appreciate Mitsudomoe for what it’s for. With such a cast of clashing personalities, it always feels like something new is coming when different characters are grouped together. From Yoshioka’s awesome eyebrows to Matsuoka’s occult madness, every single character brings something unique to the table. Plus, you can’t forget about the silent cast — Forehead Girl and Mouse Boy being the ones I can remember clearly. Now, if only a surprise third season would be released..

P.S. Bridge, are you listening? My only wish if another season or OVA is released, is for Soujirou to blow up with anger on a police officer for doing absolutely nothing wrong — and not get arrested.

    It was a great ending to a great series.

    • February 28, 2011 at 9:54 amX

      I know, but what was the reason for stopping it so short? I mean I find it weird that a whole sequel is merely 8 episode, I mean shouldnt it be at least 12 ep? or 13 ep. Why 8? It’s way too short.

  • February 26, 2011 at 8:55 pmKyzel

    Now I understand why they didn’t use the gachi misunderstanding with Yabechi… They cleared it up officially. Sadness that it’s over… It was still a great run for a series! Thanks for blogging!

  • February 26, 2011 at 9:01 pmRailgun

    I’m so sad this is the last episode. Still awesome, nonetheless. Though, I’d still to know what happened to their father. From a lean guy to the person you see now. What happened? Glad to know I wasn’t the only one thinking when a police officer will arrive at the end.

    • February 27, 2011 at 8:35 amahbonk

      Actually there were police officers at the end, during the sponsor display after the preview. But they saluted him instead :D Epic

  • February 26, 2011 at 9:21 pmCorn

    OPPAI IPPAI!!!

    Yattttaaa~~~~ :D

  • February 26, 2011 at 9:56 pmAwww

    The flashback…
    awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww <3

  • February 26, 2011 at 10:21 pmOblivion

    Tis a shame that it comes to an end. 8 episodes seem to be a somewhat odd number to end it at, but at least we are getting one more. Also, when Soujirou and his triplets were walking off into the sunset, I was just waiting for a cop to come out of nowhere and start screaming at him, but I am glad that it didnt happen.

    All in all, funny show that delivered plenty of laughs. Hope for even more somewhere down the line.

    • February 26, 2011 at 11:32 pmFlamingYu

      curse from the Endless Eight, that this series ended on episode 8?

  • February 26, 2011 at 10:21 pmZ_P

    I wonder how many got the inside joke about Kikuko Inoue (the va for Sugisaki’s mom)?

    • February 26, 2011 at 11:04 pmDan

      Lmao, I didn’t realise it till now.

    • February 27, 2011 at 1:04 amLuke

      I did. It is not the first time they used that gag; it was in a few other series as well where Kikuko Inoue was a seiyu. This scene had the best opportunity though; after all, it is her catchphrase…

      • February 27, 2011 at 12:16 pmMavrick3020

        Ha, I laughed so hard at that joke. It makes me miss Zetsubou-sensei.

  • February 26, 2011 at 10:23 pmbanzemanga

    Best comedy of the season. Even so, i am glad there are a few special episodes to go. It is no over yet! Mitsudomoeeeeee!

  • February 26, 2011 at 10:28 pmeatwontosoup

    Another great season. Most underrated show all year and last year

    • February 26, 2011 at 11:37 pmfeal87

      Yep, and ended up as the most funny. :D

  • February 26, 2011 at 10:56 pmFidelDesu

    love this series ; its jokes , misunderstanding jokes are something new

  • February 26, 2011 at 11:03 pmRoberta

    Mitsudomoe is cool *Q*

  • February 26, 2011 at 11:31 pmFlamingYu

    lol Yabechi = Ash Ketchup

  • February 26, 2011 at 11:40 pmKobukson

    I’ll be honest, I feel the horrible view rate with these posts has a bit to do with the fact this series can be so easily misinterpreted by seeing the wrong screenshot out of context. A few examples:

    http://randomc.net/image/Mitsudomoe/Mitsudomoe%20-%2006%20-%2028.jpg
    http://randomc.net/image/Mitsudomoe/Mitsudomoe%20Zouryouchuu%20-%2002%20-%2038.jpg
    http://randomc.net/image/Mitsudomoe/Mitsudomoe%20Zouryouchuu%20-%2005%20-%2013.jpg

    This is a great series, but, just like in the episodes themselves, everything can be so easily misinterpreted in this series without the proper context. Hopefully your blog posts will convince others to give the series a chance as they did me.

    • February 27, 2011 at 5:24 amkoja

      I think screenshots should be accompanied by captions. Better if go by Jaalin’s style :P

  • February 27, 2011 at 12:03 amHitoha

    Can’t believe this is over! Definitely one of the most underrated series out there
    Personally, I find the character designs and voice acting superb, and I’m very surprised it doesn’t appeal to a wider audience
    Can’t wait for the bonus episode and definitely adding the dvd box set to my collection :D
    MITSUDOMOE!!!

  • February 27, 2011 at 12:33 amgawrshness

    awww 8 episodes weren’t enough :( now what I gonna do for my weekly laughter? Mitsudomoe worked as a sort of stress reliever for me…

  • February 27, 2011 at 12:47 ammiron

    Loved both seasons and was nearly choked up at the end of this one too.
    I do hope for a suprise 3rd season!

    Im really going to miss these guys. xD

  • February 27, 2011 at 1:37 amyoz

    So if I get this right, then in previous years their class would all cosplay as Futaba so that she can run in all the events…?! Ingenious!!

  • February 27, 2011 at 2:45 amMadox

    Love Mitsudomoe :)

    Voting for snow throwing scene as the most epic ;) Hitohaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

  • February 27, 2011 at 2:57 amNeep

    This episode was amazing! From Hitoha’s long-awaited confession to the Marui family having yet another heartwarming gathering, this show will be deeply missed! Yes, please let there be a surprise third season! >.<

  • February 27, 2011 at 3:00 amblanket

    well, i would like to see an OVA of soujirou in his younger days and the mysterious mother of the triplets!

  • February 27, 2011 at 3:07 amPazoozoo

    Damn, I’m sad, loved both seasons and now it’s over :(. But anyway I had a blast to following the triplets and their class. Hope a surprise for a new season comes someday :).

  • February 27, 2011 at 4:03 amoutcast

    Good times. Now i’m off installing this show on other people’s computers.

  • February 27, 2011 at 4:23 amHorus

    I’m really sad its over 8[

  • February 27, 2011 at 4:57 amMountainGoat

    No Hitoha, Futaba and mitsuba ??? NOOOO!

  • February 27, 2011 at 5:01 amprejsu

    epic show, that’s all i wanted to say

  • February 27, 2011 at 5:27 amEspada

    HHHHHHHHHHNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG

  • February 27, 2011 at 6:55 amDragonite88

    I have to agree with you therr takaii on your comment. This had to be the one the best comdey based show of all time. I never laughed so much in my life. Even the repeated gags where to die for. I too wish for another season or ova

  • February 27, 2011 at 7:09 amT.K.

    This Hitoha centered finale surely ended on a good note but it’s depressing that I had just lost the show that ends every week with a bang. Well, I guess I’ll do my part in the Mitsudomoe indoctrination campaign. XD

  • February 27, 2011 at 10:34 amAndré

    I don’t this episode was the last one. The 9th will be the last. But hopefully we’ll gonna have a third season.

    • February 27, 2011 at 11:57 amTakaii

      If you check out my final impressions, the preview mentioned how next week’s episode is more of a bonus rather than something that continues the storyline. They even went as far as saying that it’s something that was supposed to be aired during season 1.

      But, I’m happy that we get one more (:

  • February 27, 2011 at 1:49 pmoutcast

    • February 27, 2011 at 3:38 pmTakaii

      Yes. But even better if she is carrying Soujirou. Or has her gi. :T

    • February 27, 2011 at 3:40 pmrazi

      no,too old (not that im pedo :D)

  • February 27, 2011 at 3:18 pmP0NCH

    The flashback was overwhelmingly adorable :)
    It was also cool to see Yabecchi and Hitoha nerding out on the Gachi Rangers (although the misunderstandings will be missed).
    Sad to see it go so soon; Mitsudomoe was truly an awesome, side splitting laugh out loud funny show.
    8 episodes is a rather short run, but at least we get a bonus episode to hold us over.
    As always, thanks to Takaii for your reviews :D

  • February 27, 2011 at 3:38 pmrazi

    Mitsubas fart expression= priceless :D, also Hitoha was very cute during first skit, Mitsudomoe 2 definitely gets my vote in top 2011 :)

  • February 27, 2011 at 4:05 pmtd

    This was such a good ending =D Alittle disappointed it was only 8eps but heres hoping for another season (cant wait for the lost episode though). x)

  • February 27, 2011 at 4:59 pmPoiira

    MITSUDOMOEEEE!! COME BACK TO MEEEE!!!

  • February 27, 2011 at 5:54 pmCHS

    Does Mitsudomoe have a manga?

  • February 27, 2011 at 6:11 pmunlisted

    I couldn’t stop laughing. <3 hitoha

  • February 28, 2011 at 1:41 amMrRei

    I’m watching.. and reading.. but not posting comments. I do feel like most people are not watching such a funny show. If you’ve haven’t watch this show, you don’t know what you’re missing!

  • February 28, 2011 at 1:20 pmMM

    Have to rewatch the first and second season again. Bummer that its over already but cannot wait for the bonus extra episode

  • March 4, 2011 at 6:21 amauntie heng

    Plus if you wanted realism, Futaba’s drawings are pretty good.
    LOL!!

  • March 6, 2011 at 4:15 pmbaltar

    Are you going to review the extra episode that came with the BDs?

  • March 12, 2011 at 12:26 amcoach hand bags

    Anyone, what is to come now with only 2 episodes left, something in spoiler tags please, just a preview
