    The bit at the ending implies that his hearing comes in goes, though he might be entirely deaf now.

    This was a surprisingly engrossing episode.

    First Shimada, now Kiriyama is helping Souya, the sisters really rubbed off on him.

    More insight on Souya's character, at first I thought he was just single minded, focused on Shogi, lacking human interactions etc, but he was most likely deaf. Well he could also be all of that since he is lonely, shogi seems like his only true method of communicating with others. This is pretty much what Kiriyama could have been if not for all the people that helped him in his life.

    I thought the music used in this episode was excellent.

    3 weeks about Kawamoto sisters. mang...

    --
    Just realized that it's coming back in March . *March comes in like a lion*
    Then I realized it's coming on the 3rd of March. 3 = 3 weeks hiatus

    it's like they planned this from the very beginning.

    So Souya is deaf.

    Nikaidou being back, bringing the happiness. Loved his enthusiasm this episode

    This was as heartwarming as it gets, Nikaidou is back with a new move, the sisters are back with a new recipe, Kiriyama laughing uncontrollably :bury

    I want to see a backstory on Souya to know what caused him to be so stressed out to the point of not hearing. I thought it was a nice touch in the beginning of the ep, where it was from his POV.

    The little cooking lesson was much needed for me. I'm honestly not too interested in the enigma that's Souya or his hearing problem.

    So glad this is back!

    Strong episode on it's return. Both players have interesting reasons for wanting to win, wish I actually understood Shogi though.

    That was one of the more intense episodes I've seen so far I didn't even feel bad that Shimada lost, Saku was just that good(and stubborn).

    also the sisters in the PV :blobaww

    At the start of this arc I was hoping that Shimada would finally get a title, but Saku turned out to be such a great character.

    Just finished up the final ep. The extra chapter was a bit strange with just stills and barely any animation. Can't really say it was due to budget issues because some of the stills were amazing!

    Ah the second half got me. I know the feeling of moving further apart from people, gonna happen to me when I graduate in the summer. Lovely ep, Hina is just the cutest thing ever. Protect the bob!

    Surely this has to get a third season, I really wish this had to never stop airing.

    So op 2 has always seemed similar to me for some reason. Just figured out it's Yuki who sings it and she did the op for Honey and Clover. :rem

    It was such a good/bittersweet send off for the season, I actually liked Rei's scene with his adopted mom, the fact that Rei was able to go back to that house shows how much he's grown. And if something does happen to the grandpa Rei will be there and help watch over them.

    Everyone's reaction to Hina's bob :bookerskully

    Theres enough material for season 3 I think so hopefully Shaft makes that announcement :catsad

    Ah, yes. Oh my fuckin god yes. I LOVED this last episode. I loved both parts with Rei visiting his old home and the second half with Hina. It's a shame that her fresh cut was kinda kiddy-looking, but the very brief moments as she walks out of the house for the first say of school made her look kinda cute. Solid 10/10 for the last scene with Akari cookin, Momo drawin, and Hina and Rei walkin. Overall, I'd give this season an 8/10.

    Bad time to bump, but I just wanna say I watched this recently and enjoyed it a lot.

    It was pretty wonderful
    Reminded me a lot of Chihayafuru
    But with more of a focus on the relationships than the sport
    Hina with her hair down is best girl.
    I'll never forgive her for cutting her hair
    I was looking forward to more of her and Kyouko potentially going at it
    Especially after their run in near the end of season 1
    But Kyouko disappeared after her lone season 2 showing.

    Oh well.

    Here's hoping for Season 3. I heard there was an animator exodus at Shaft recently. Hopefully they can get their shit together and make another one soon.
