Ending Theme: Good Luck
Okay, I've seen even less of this season than the previous one. Just three.
So I don't really have enough of an impression to talk about it these
episodes at length. But from what I hear it may be the best one yet.
And since it features some of my favorite manga stories, I know it's got
to be great.
would expect of a non-stop production like this, the staff was really
beginning to get tired by the end of this, the last season. From what
I've seen, it doesn't show, but this is definately the main reason the
show ended here. The animators suffered for you so you better appreciate
I haven't been able to see more than a few episodes from this season I
want for AnimEigo to get this far in their translations more than ever.
