Love Live! S2 – μ’s Music End

Shipping Nico x Maki so hard!

Love Live! S2 ended like it began – singing, dancing, smiling, and hamming it up like nobody’s business. But I finished the series smiling, so I think it did its job.

No Game No Life – 12 (END)

「収束法《ルール・ナンバー・10》」 (Shuusokuhou “Ruuru Nanbaa 10”)
“Rule Number 10″

A game within a game within a game. Kuuhaku’s target is never the one in front of them, but them, their next opponent, and everything else standing between them and the game against Tet. Long live the Elkian Federation!

Moving forward ever so slowly, Isshuukan Friends’ finale bows out gracefully. While it wasn’t the bang I was looking for, it definitely didn’t leave us completely hanging!

Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin – 11 (END)

「八真重護が決める覚悟」 (Yama Juugo ga Kimeru Kakugo)

Magi: The Kingdom of Magic – Redemption

Happy endings are worth fighting for.

After its first season, some said the Magi anime didn’t deserve the second season it was getting. If so, they made good of the chance they were given. From story to animation, character development to action, from heart-wrenching tragedy, complex villains, lots of Extreme Magic, and a climax that built on everything that came before it, the anime found redemption.

This is a finale snapshot, so spoilers ahoy! Feel free to read if you don’t mind being spoiler though, because I just might convince you that you need to watch the second season.
