The last episode is here! What do the SNS club and their honorary members get themselves into at Comiket?

(Spoilers in this review

Well, they worked themselves hard, but the SNS club finished their game in time for Comiket! E-eh, I guess they passed their exams so Ha-chan can participate? That was really glossed over.

Check out Kayo dominating most of the couch with her legs!

The art looks pretty good, actually.

On the day of the convention, Ha-chan fetches Tamaki because the group couldn’t get a hold of our resident sleepyhead. Meanwhile the rest of the girls head there by boat.

Ha-chan tries to go for gold and reaches for Tamaki’s hand, but the arrival of Yumine puts a damper on that.

The three girls wander around the venue for a bit and then they bump into the rest of the SNS club working hard at Kayo’s friend’s booth.vlcsnap-2016-12-23-15h01m50s799vlcsnap-2016-12-23-15h05m43s877vlcsnap-2016-12-23-15h05m52s573vlcsnap-2016-12-23-15h06m03s545

Everything is selling like hotcakes (why hotcakes? This saying makes little sense), including the SNS’s club game. And then Tamaki’s first fan from the June convention!

Still pretty as ever.

Everyone’s praise about Ha-chan has her turning as red as her hair.

The event goes well, but Tamaki is left with a prickling feeling in her chest. The SNS clubs then head to the beach to celebrate.

And here comes the obligatory beach (half) episode!

Kayo, you’re so daring!

Yumine is so intrusive!

Shiina trying to act like Kayo.

B-but this was a mistake!

A tragedy has occurred!

She needs to level up that skill.

Meanwhile Ha-chan is finding it hard to join the girls after acting like a tsundere over the phone.

Shiina doesn’t feel too good, so Tamaki offers to get the group some drinks. Along the way she sees some siblings having fun on the beach which causes her to have a bit of a realization.

She realized that she doesn’t want to just draw. Tamaki wants to create a game with her own ideals, but she needs the SNS club to help. Of course, they’re happy to help her since she helped them self-publish two games already. Looks like they already have a new project lined up for Winter Comiket.

Then the ED plays as the girls are shown playing around on the beach. The credits roll. More scenes. I realize that seeing this slice-of-life show end is actually making me sad.vlcsnap-2016-12-23-15h37m28s594vlcsnap-2016-12-23-15h39m53s722vlcsnap-2016-12-23-15h39m58s101vlcsnap-2016-12-23-15h40m16s368vlcsnap-2016-12-23-15h40m24s398vlcsnap-2016-12-23-15h40m38s058vlcsnap-2016-12-23-15h40m44s918vlcsnap-2016-12-23-15h40m51s699vlcsnap-2016-12-23-15h41m14s059vlcsnap-2016-12-23-15h41m19s637vlcsnap-2016-12-23-15h41m36s099
