Happy Sugar Life Final Episode (12): Eternal love

I know this episode had a lot of plot convenience going for it, but it was still really satisfying to watch everything fall into place. All of the chance encounters between characters just made sense, and I think it's a testament to how this show was handled as a whole. It's hard to put a finger on how I feel about this series now that it's over. I think there's always going to be a nagging guilt at how enjoyable it seemed when the characters were just so horrible. But it all felt like it was done so well, and it's hard to disparage the show.

The ring was a bit silly, but I could feel myself watching expectantly when I saw this scene. It just immediately made me understand where everything is going.

The fact that the plan to destroy the apartment forces Satou to go to the third floor and run into Taiyou was a development I really liked. It made Taiyou's presence more relevant, and it was an excellent curveball development.

There is one piece I have a hard time forgiving, though. When Satou escapes to the elevator with Shio, Asahi's frustration makes sense. However, I find it hard to believe that he couldn't tell that they went to the third floor instead of the twelfth floor. The elevator he took should have been coming from the eleventh floor, so there should have been time for him to see Satou's elevator stop on the third floor. It seems too convenient to say that he was just too flustered to notice. It works out because he sees Shouko's body, but it still bothers me.

I kinda figured this, but it's still awesome.


I'm not entirely sure what to make of Shio's ending. You can hear the sound of glass shattering when Satou hits the ground, which I'm presuming is the sound of Shio's love jar breaking. Based on her description of the jar, I suppose the ending is supposed to indicate that Shio can no longer accept love because her jar has been broken. And the series ends with her clinging on to the only thing she has left, the love she had for Satou. Sure, I guess?

Final Score: 8/10 Surprisingly entertaining despite the extreme premise, and the progression of the story always felt like it made sense even if it wasn't always conventional.
