「黄昏の・・・ 上級契約 (ハイヤーエンゲージ)」 (Koukun no… Joukyuu Keiyaku (Haiyaa Engeeji))
“Twilight of … Advanced Contract (Higher Engage)”
After another season of one of the cutest love stories I’ve ever seen, it comes to a rather predictable end. But who says that predictable can’t also mean awesome?
Because not much happened in the episode, it’ll just be a huge final impression post! More after the break!

「青き月の・・・最終決戦 (ブルームーン・ラグナロク)」 (Aokitsuki no…Saishuu Kessen (Buruumuun Ragunaroku))
“Final Battle of… The Blue Moon (Blue Moon Ragnarok)”
After all of last week’s buildup and watching this episode through to the very end, I feel a little conflicted over the message I think this arc was trying to tell. Then again, my emotions are all kinds of screwed up after watching Kill La Kill and researching One Week Friends — so who knows!

「真夏の夜の・・・雨と鞭 (Gauntlet of rain)」 (Manatsu no Yoru… Ame to Muchi (Gauntlet of rain))
“A Midsummer Night’s… Rain and Whip (Gauntlet of Rain)”
After kind of going through the same thing Sophia did (albeit with a little less chuunibyou involved), this episode did a critical hit on my heart.

「偽りの…精霊聖母(モリサマー)」 (Itsuwari no… Seirei Seibo (Mori Samaa))
“The False… Spiritual Virgin (Mori Summer)”
After two whole episodes of constant relationship development on the Yuuta and Rikka front, this week took a slight break to focus on our other favorite duo.

“Hesitant… Tsukushino Island Travelling”
After feeling like a rabbit that’s been taunted with a carrot that’s just barely out of its reach, the amount of happiness that this week’s episode brought is indescribable.

「幻想の…昼寝迷宮（シエスタラビリンス）」 (Gensou no… Hirune Nuikyou (Siesuta Rabirinsu))
“The Illusive… Siesta Labyrinth”
Since the start of the second season, I’ve felt bad for Kumin and Isshiki. I mean, it just felt like they were relegated into the obscure space of bad jokes and running gags! But in typical Kyoani fashion they gave us an amazing episode that focused on our favorite napping senpai.

“An Innocent… Student Council President / Queenmaker”
Silly me! Did I really think Nibutani would have become Student Council President? I mean come on, I totally should have saw it not happening from like a light year away.

“Magical Devil Girl… In Pursuit”
I don’t even know where to start after watching this amazing episode. You want some ecchi? Here’s some ecchi. You want some heart-melting, hnnnng inducing moments? You got it. You want a new character who pushes our favorite couple forward instead of backwards? HERE YOU GO.

「復活の…邪王真眼」 (Fukkatsu no … Jyaoo Shingan)
“Revival of the… Wicked Eye”
Oh hey, isn’t Chu2Koi Ren another sequel this season? I must be the resident slice-of-life and sequel writer! Jokes aside, Chu2Koi Ren is a show that needs no introduction — unless you haven’t watched the first season. Which if you haven’t, go do it. Right now.

「煌めきの… 聖爆誕祭（スラップスティック・ノエル）」 (Kirameki no…Surappusutikku Noeru)
I missed Rikka’s adorable “auu~”s so much, and it didn’t hurt that this episode had what was probably the single best gag of the entire series so far.

「終天の契約(エターナル・エンゲージ)」 (Owari Ten no Keiyaku ( Eta^naru . Enge^ji ))
A sweet ending – and not a little bit silly – to a series that richly deserved it. Be true to yourself, embrace the weirdness within, and your happy ending just might await you up on ahead, under that Unseen Horizon.

This is not why you first started watching this show, but if it’s done right, it’s why you’ll remember it. So far, it is.
