So Tomo and Jun went to see the movie which got a little more ecchi than they anticipated (makes you wonder what kinda things Misuzu’s really into, considering she encouraged them to watch it, haha) I was slightly taken back by how shy Tomo was at Jun’s house though – asking to sit next to him, fidgeting etc. I guess Jun’s parents not being home really got her mind racing, and Jun’s too.
Goro really had to ruin things didn’t he? I understand the reason why he wanted to challenge Jun, it makes sense, but he definitely didn’t spend much time thinking about how Tomo might feel having to wait for Jun to beat him before she and Jun can officially start dating.
Jun’s Final Obstacle
Jun takes a few weeks to prepare, and then challenges Goro. Jun was seriously taking a beating to start off with, with blood and bruises all over. That is until Tomo showed up to watch. Jun gives it his all, dodges a powerful blow and lands one of his own straight on Goro’s nose. How hype was that scene?! It felt like something straight out of One Piece or something, serious shonen vibes. With Goro defeated, that only means one thing: Jun and Tomo now have the blessing of both Tomo’s parents and can begin to date!
What We’ve All Been Waiting For
So here we are, the final scene of the final episode. Y’know, This anime has been a really fun ride. So I was hoping, praying (as we all were) for something amazing from this last scene to round off an amazing series. Jun taking the initiative and being the one to confess to Tomo as the man was honestly just perfect in my opinion. The series is titled Tomo-Chan is a Girl – and finally, he sees her as exactly that. Usually, it’s the man who confesses to the woman, so having Tomo confessing to Jun as the first scene plays a part in that dynamic really well, portraying Tomo as the man. But having Jun’s confession as the last scene was the icing on the cake because it shows that now, through his shift in perspective, Jun has took the title of “the man of the two of them” away from Tomo and allowed her to flourish as the beautiful girl that she is. Then of course, if having a formal confession wasn’t enough, Tomo responded to Jun’s confession by kissing him. So wholesome, so great, and just an all-round perfect way to end this incredible romcom anime.
BONUS: Be Happy Tomo, Be Happy.
I always like to stick around after the credits of the last episode to see if there’s any extra content, which there was! In case you missed it, Carol takes a group photo with the gang, and Tomo ends the series with the line “I, Tomo Aizawa, am the happiest I have ever been!” I’m not crying, you are, haha.
Final Thoughts On This Series
Wow, this anime has been something alright. From a loveable set of characters, to great relationships between them, to a well paced plot development, I really enjoyed this series. Right now, it’s unknown whether we’ll get a second season. To be honest, even if we don’t, that ending was so perfect I wouldn’t even mind. I stand by what I said in my last review, I would quite easily put this gem in my top 5 romcoms of all time, maybe even top 3. How about you guys? How were you feeling about this cheerful ending? Who’s the one character you’ll miss the most? Let us know in the comments below. As always, thanks for reading!
