Nagisa and Tomoya celebrate Fukoâ€™s sisterâ€™s wedding together two days before, but when they wake up they have no memory of her.
Wow, that was amazing. I couldnâ€™t have hoped for a better end to Fukoâ€™s arc. Really, it was great. It had some very sad moments to it but also ended with a kind of happy note. I will admit now that a couple times throughout this I teared up. It was incredibly sad. Not just the times when she disappeared necessarily, but just seeing her being so happy and cute while knowing her doom was hard to watch. You could see it in her character that she knew she was going to disappear. However even though I knew it was coming, I had absolutely no doubt in my mind that she would end up disappearing, when Nagisa and Tomoya woke up and she wasnâ€™t there, and didnâ€™t remember her, it was very sad. It was almost painful, in a good way for the show, to watch the two of them stumbling about trying to remember her and things that had happened because of her.
Even though this episode was sad in many ways it ended on a great note. Not that I absolutely love tragic and sad endings, but they kind of ended in a happy way without making everything they had done so far useless. I would have been kind of upset if Fuko didnâ€™t disappear at the end of this episode. I donâ€™t really care if she comes back later, in fact I kind of hope she does. I hope she wakes up later down the road but even if she doesnâ€™t, itâ€™s still a happy ending. Her feelings were shown to have stayed with people and her actions did cause for people to gather for her sisters wedding. Just seeing all she had done was sad and happy at the same time, I really couldnâ€™t have asked for this arc to have gone any better.
The next arc seems to focus on Kotomi. She is definitely one of the more interesting characters, personality wise. Iâ€™m not too sure what to expect from her arc as really, when I first stated watching this show I said that Fuko and Kotomiâ€™s arcs will likely be two of the less interesting and less serious ones because both of them have very over the top, in a good way, funny and quirky personalities. Just the random â€œnormalâ€ stuff they do was funny, however Fukoâ€™s arc proved to be amazing and had a serious and sad element to it, so I canâ€™t really say that Kotomiâ€™s arc doesnâ€™t have a chance, Iâ€™m just not sure what it will be about.
