    Trutfully [True Route] wasn’t so great… I enjoyed it that they actually showed Kuroneko story but her story was pretty bad… Hopefully somehow they can make the manga longer cuz the manga is way behind… I heard the [True Route] was supposed to be the original ending? Not sure if it’s true or not o.o

      I was also a bit disappointed with it, I haven’t read the manga though so I wouldn’t be able to compare. I’ve also heard that. Apparently, these 4 specials are the actual ending to the show, whereas the other one was just aired on TV to give some kind of an ending vibe. I really liked the idea of having two endings, however it’s true that Kuroneko’s route wasn’t the best and I liked Kirino much more than her.

    The problem is that this really isn’t an ‘ending’ to the author because the light novels are still ongoing. It pretty much just ended a story arc. I can’t say that I am impressed with how rushed the last part seemed (and the lol-group-jump) though there are some things that I think were okay.

    Kirino, once reaching America, got pretty lonely and depressed. She couldn’t play her games and she made that dumb promise not to talk to her family and friends until she beat that girl. This in itself would have led her to underperform (perhaps significantly) which led to her being told to take a break by the coach and her losing consistently to that other girl.

    Once Kyousuke arrived and let her play some games and told her all that cheesy stuff and said he wanted to bring her back home (almost in a “you’re my girl and I’m bringing you back no matter what” kinda way) was perhaps enough to cheer her back up and she was able to race against the girl at 100% (or more) without the depression and loneliness to weight her down.

    Motivation and inspiration factor in a lot to performance. It’s not the only thing that matters, but people will generally see a huge drop in ability if they are bothered by other things. The ending just shows that Kyousuke brought everything that Kirino needed to feel better again and she managed to fight fairly (or perhaps unfairly… people might think she really sucked when she was depressed but she wouldn’t have made it to that camp if she was slow and maybe her opponent underestimated her in that last match… more on this in the novels when that girl she beat goes to Japan to find Kirino).

    The concept is there, but I will have to say the execution wasn’t so stellar. Book 8 sold pretty well (150,000 first week) though it was blown out of the water on all accounts by Haruhi book 10 (340,000++) when it was released recently. Maybe that will be enough to get more seasons out of this and perhaps get to see Kirino with more honest feelings.

    The group-jump-while-holding-hands thing kinda ruined it more than anything tho. ^_^;

      LOL! Maybe I wasn’t paying attention, I actually didn’t notice that group jump XD I’m sure I’d agree with you though, that’s just way too corny for me O.o. The performance thing probably is true too, however I think what I hated the most in this was how cheesy everything was and how it was terribly done, like you said. Though, while what you say is true about the performance, it really wasn’t done well since we barely had time to figure out anything. This episode kinda felt rushed, actually :/.

      As for the second season, I believe. I do believe. And I always will just like TWoGK and its third season ;P

        I think that part of the issue was that the anime did not show Kirino’s side and explain why she was sad/lonely so when Kyousuke just goes there we get this massive info dump with only one side being explained (Kyousuke’s) and we’re left to derive/guess the feelings of Kirino.
