Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo - 12 Screenshot 06Nyaboron proves to be quite a hit with the audience, mostly due to Nanami’s dazzling performance as a narrator, guide and the main character. At least until that last part. While I agree with Sorata that the climax should involve the audience the most, it was a very risky move to appeal to such an intimate and personal issue. He should have predicted the hesitation and prepare accordingly instead of just praying for it to somehow work out.

Surprisingly enough, it was Mashiro who started this whole improvisation, with Misaki and Rita joining in right after her and embarrassing Jin and Ryuunosuke in the process. I really like that even though Sorata didn’t have the guts to say everything that he had on his mind, he at least hinted at it. Obviously, the hint was probably totally lost on Mashiro, but it’s the thought that counts, right?

With the festival and Nyaboron arc over, I can only wonder what will be next. I’m really hoping for a ramp-up in the romantic department for the second half, and perhaps a new OP/ED sequence? (even though I love the current OP and ED)
