Winter 2018 Grab Bag Week 12: Sangatsu no Lion, Mahou Tsukai no Yome

Aww, shows are ending.

3-gatsu no Lion S2 Episode 42

I always find episodes like this one interesting because I never really had the crisis of conscience when I was in school. I can relate with being indecisive about life goals, but I've never been in the situation of choosing whether or not to continue with my education. This arc is a fun one to end the season, using the transition to high school as a stopping point.

I like how Rei and Hina's situations are contrasted. Rei felt forced into his path in life but learned to accept it. Meanwhile, he's watching as Hina earnestly pursues what she likes. If anything, I'd say my situation was closer to Hina's. I always had vague interests, but I didn't feel like I could commit to one as a career.

I really love Rei's facial expressions. It doesn't feel like his expression should be much, but it's so hilarious to me.

Good on Hina for being conscious of money. I liked her grandfather's reaction because it was similar to the mentality my parents had.

Mahoutsukai no Yome Final Episode (24)

I'm pretty satisfied with the ending we got. Sure, it leaves room for more, but it seemed to resolve story points as far as I could tell.

As I've said before, I wanted to see Chise survive in the end, so I have no problem with this development. I really should have seen this ending coming, but I was so focused on the idea that Chise would reject Joseph and Cartaphilus. Still, I'm fine with the idea that she's now basically "normal" with the competing curses inside her.

Ashen Eye is probably my biggest issue with this episode. He feels like he's been set up as the big bad orchestrating everything behind the scenes, so he remains a loose end that remains unresolved. If we judge him based on this season alone, he's just a random mystery that pops up whenever he wants to cause trouble. He's kind of annoying in my eyes.

Hey, we got Chise in a wedding dress. No complaints here.

Final Score: 7/10 - Fun ride with interesting stories about spiritual concepts.
