Now that Love Live is coming up soon, the students ask for a closing ceremony. Mari grants their wish.
Given that the school is closing soon, it’s obvious that the students want to find a way to give it a proper sendoff. Instead of waiting until graduation, a few students sent in a proposal to have a school festival dedicating the school. Pretty much similar to what Yoshino and her friends did in Sakura Quest with the town participating.
While not much happened in terms of plot, I have to admit that there were some fun moments. Aside from Kanan and You wearing Walrus and Sea Lion costumes, Shiitake scares the girls. Yes, they think that there was a ghost, but it’s just him playing around. Of course, he caused damage with the welcome sign coming down.
Also, there are some nice moments during the festival too. There is Dia and Ruby doing a quiz show with questions on Love Live. Of course, Dia won it since she obviously knew all the answers. Also, there is Yoshiko doing her fortune-telling. Sadly, hardly any students came besides Chika. At least it’s nice to see Riko helping Yoshiko realize her dream. Of course, the maid outfits with the café is cute, and definitely resembles Leah’s and Sarah’s waitress outfits.
While the festival is fun, all good things have to come to an end. After the bon dance, it seems that Mari have feelings of regret for being unable to save the school. This comes after realizing how much she loves the school and how important it is for the town. Thankfully, the student body still believes in them as they chant Aqours. After wards, Mari ensures them that they will win Love Live by singing with all their cheer.
Overall, while this episode isn’t as strong in plot compared to the last two episodes, it’s still enjoyable. It’s a nice way to commemorate everything about the school before it closes and the girls deciding Aqour’s fate after Love Live ends. Either way, next episode will most likely focus on the Love Live competition. ¶
