School Live! Ends

For a show about the antics of four high school girls, their faculty advisor and their dog as they try to keep their club active in the face of a downright hostile faculty and student body, School Live!  has been rather more emotionally engaging than one would expect. 

It's actually been quite the tear jerker at times.

However, despite some quite heart-wrenching moments...

"You have been and always shall be...My friend."

and the fact that one of the overarching themes is the importance of seeing the world as it is (ugliness and all) rather than how one wants it to be...

"Oh please. It's not about me. It's about my students"

...this show has maintained a surprisingly upbeat outlook overall. 

All in all, School Live! has managed to stay quite solid (if sometimes emotionally taxing) all the way through. There really weren't any weak episodes and it stands as one of the absolute best in its genre.

This last episode, the graduation episode, is especially poignant. People say their goodbyes...

"OK Point of order: Th...Wait. Who's missing?"

...various plot lines are wrapped up and, intriguingly,  some new ones are started. The show's ending is surprisingly open ended and hints at a sequel...which would be a most welcome development, as this series was outstanding.
I highly recommend it.

I'm still confused.

There's another dog in the basement!  Let's...ignore that.

The other dog is dead!  No, alive!  No, dead.  No!....

Business is bad!  College is good!

In all seriousness, the first fifteen minutes of this ep were awesome.  Did they hand it over to a bunch of 3rd graders to complete after that?

2 Unstated:
Personally, I thought the last half was actually a nice touch in that it related to the overall story and provided a modicum of closure that would have otherwise been lacking. The girls indulged in a bit of whimsey and held a ceremony marking the closing of one chapter of their lives as they prepared to embark on another one.
