The Christmas party so incredibly good. On one hand, it feels really good to see everyone (who are now pretty successful) together again. This will sound very cheesy and embarrassing to say, but it really felt like I watched these girls grew up from the very first episode. It sort of hit hard in the feels, and I was actually somewhat teary during the ending. I began remembering all the previous episodes...the journey of each of those girls rushed back to me all at once. But on the other hand...I've seen what usually happens to these types of parties. It is a party of parting. I then realize that they will soon go their separate ways... So that "feel good" feeling I had immediately plummeted into sadness.
tl;dr - I caught up with an anime I haven't watched in a while, didn't remember much of it, but got sucked back into it because of how memorable the characters are.
EDIT 2: Holy shit final episode was almost as good as Manabi Straight ending. ALMOST.
EDIT 3: The [email protected] is now the most flawed anime on my list that has a 8/10.
