The finale wasn't that bad, I must say. The animation was really good this episode. My only complaint is that the whole series was way too fast and strayed far from the manga. I'm hoping for a more original ending from CLAMP, and a longer manga than the anime, but for a 24 episode series, they did pretty good.
There were many things that were changed and many things this anime needed to make it complete, imho. I know for a fact Ioryogi and Kobato have more of a relationship than they conveyed in the anime. I'd really like some more of their story in the manga :/ That was a disappointment for me. But I guess when you start an anime series when the manga has less than 20 chapters out, that's what you get. Also, Kobato and Fujimoto's whole ordeal was too tedious in the anime. She's messing around more than half the time, then it's like "Epiphany! I love Fujimoto!" It wasn't well-balanced in the anime. What's weird is that she gets 500 candy for every person she heals apparently. In the manga it's not even fall yet, I don't think, and she has like 8 candy in her bottle. But what's odd is it's tedious in the anime, not the manga.
I guess the fact that I'm reading the manga holds me back from really enjoying this series. It's like a good fanfiction though, the anime. I've been dying to see some Fujimoto x Kobato huggles in the manga, and I just don't get any ):
As for the final episode itself, pretty good. Nothing much to complain about. I'm glad it didn't end with Kobato never meeting Fujimoto again, because I'm too much of a sap for that. I'd die, and say this whole series was worthless for such a ending. So yeah, I'm glad for that. And like I said, the animation was better in this episode than any other.
So yeah. Overall, a 6.5/10. Everything leading up to this moment was really lame, so I think the finale made it better for me. I just love this manga and the anime had some worthwhile material for me to edit with, too.
Also, I loved the return of Ioryogi.
