How long has it been since you had that feel at the end of an anime series?
You know that feel I am talking about; It is like waking up from a really good dream, or finishing a great book or RPG. It starts off unnoticeable when the ending theme(or sometimes opening theme) begins to play. You first realise it has been there when MPC-HC stops and something seems out of place.
Throughout the following day, or at least the next couple of hours, that impression is going to suck you in and dominate your thoughts. Your mind will keep trying to return to its proper place, but that is not possible, because that expectation for the next episode that you had grown accustomed to every week no longer exists. You are unable to shake off this nagging sensation of having nothing more to look forward to.
Despite all that, you know that you had enjoyed yourself a lot. Soon enough, you start getting used to that uncomfortable feeling and return to your normal self. From now on, you will always remember this show fondly. The longing might never disappear completely, but you will quickly learn to live with it. After a while, you might find yourself suddenly recalling things that were on your mind when watching it and talking about the show, and you'll feel good about it.
That sort of longing, call it an emptiness if you would, I had not felt it for quite some time like I did just now.
I had always loved Amagami's self-contained "What If?" arcs, where all the girls were given an equal amount of development as well as a good ending(with the exception of fatty). Better yet, the entire show has been an animated representation of my entire sadfrog.jpg image folder with all its "You will never..." scenarios Even though Ai is girl of the year, all years, and with the exception of the stalker, I truly felt attached to all the characters, even the Chinese girl swimmer senpai. No matter how you look at it, Miya's arc is essentially a "bad end" of sorts, since you will only ever trigger it if you had like a single heart point for all the other girls Still, it could not have been more of an appropriate final episode, since it does somehow reassure ronery faggots such as myself that even though I might not be able to score my own kuudere swimmer kouhai in real life, I have people around who still care for me.
