What the heck did I just watch?
Kaguya-sama: Love is War Season 2 (Episode 12)
Studio(s): A-1 Pictures
Genre(s): Comedy, Psychological, Romance, School, Seinen
This episode was a thing. Talk about going crazy with an ending this was something special. It all began with photos for the school. Kaguya bowed out because of some clause that her family has that doesn’t let her appear in photos, while the others had to put on a show for the guy in charge of the school. That was hilarious all by itself. But the Council wasn’t happy that one of their members was left out so they opted to do a few private photos so Kaguya could join them. Kaguya was thrilled and was about to hand over her phone when she dropped it, off of the building they were on. She got a new one but al the photos she had on her flip phone were seemingly gone for good. That kind of broke her, she wasn’t herself for a bit until Miyuki created a group on a popular social media platform and the entire council shared the photos they had. I can’t really do it justice but it was beautiful.
The last part of the episode involved a game that Chika introduced the rest of them too. The game was simple, use a bike pump to inflate a balloon if it pops on you, you lose. It sounds like a nice normal game right? Well, Chika apparently got one of those really big balloons for the game. You know the ones that get bigger than a person. As they took turns inflating the thing tension just keeps ramping up. They got poor Miko to pump the balloon, like a hundred times trying to get it to pop on her. Of course, there was only one way this could go. When the balloon finally poped it took the school with it.
So yeah school’s out forever or something. This was an amazingly funny ending. I hope we get confirmation for a season 3 soon. That’s all I’ve got for you if you still feel like reading give Burning Sky a try. Until next time Keep It Classy.
Oh yes that episode was hilarious and at the same time emotional and beautiful!
I know what you mean when you say I can’t do it justice, since the wonderful atmosphere when they started to send her photos and even more than she had before – heartthrobbing youth!!!
The funny thing is my phone broke just a while before I watched this episode (funny coincidence) but my empathy and sympathy level for this was so high that I was maybe a tad too emotional about it (and my lost story notes sobs).
Someone finally who appreciates Kaguya-sama too haha!
The funny thing too was when Shirogane had a flashback which would lead any protag to do something good but he ignored it, it was such a nice twist in the typical stereotype of anime and I loved it!
But there could be a season 3 since the manga goes further than the anime and they kind of made a little hint at the end that this is not over yet!
Let’s stay tuned together!
