After twelve weeks and an impromptu hiatus from myself, we’ve finally reached the end of Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun, i.e. the most hilarious show of the season, and I am so sorry to see it go. Nevertheless, it was a pretty appropriate ending, I believe, with enough moments of hilarity, romantic tension and induced smiles to keep everyone happy. Also, the prettiness.
