Kasimasi ~Girl Meets Girl~ 12 and Review







The final episode has Hazumu and Tomari spending a day with each other as Yasuna prepares to leave to her grandmother's house as she can't be with people anymore because of her condition. Hazumu makes a decision that affects both Tomari and Yasuna. Now, I'm very confused about the ending of the series. One moment you have Hazumu making the important choice but at the very end of the episode, that decision suddenly became null and void. That's not a very good way to end a series. You can't go back on an important choice so easily like that.

The main characters of Kasimasi have their interesting personalities. Hazumu started out as a guy who was basically a girl for the most part but became a girl literally by some aliens. He didn't seem to mind that he became a girl and enjoy being one throughout the course of the series. He doesn't have any particular strong personality traits except he's likable by most people. Hazumu's main problem is that he can't decide on things which became a major problem towards the end of the series. He's the sort of person that wants everyone to win and nobody loses but life doesn't work like that. His inability to decide really hurt both Tomari and Yasuna as they knew that he had to choose one of them but he never could make that decision. Tomari starts off as the tomboyish childhood friend of Hazumu and ends up loving him throughout the course of the series. She was hositle towards Yasuna at the beginning but became good friends with her during the course of the series. Even though she and Yasuna did have that slapfast in episode 11, they managed to talk out their differences which Tomari thank her for winning Hazumu over. She knew that Yasuna had the upper hand with Hazumu but she didn't give up until the very end. Tomari is the character who had grown the most during the series. Yasuna couldn't see guys since she was a child but somehow could see Hazumu because she had such strong feelings of love towards him. This problem of hers was a focus on and off during the series. She had so much in common with Hazumu that they are perfect for each other. Yasuna didn't really change during the series except for the final few minutes of the final episode. Ayuki was basically a watcher and helper during the series which she had feelings for Hazumu but she knows that she can't compete with Tomari and Yasuna. Asuta had feelings for Hazumu as well but he only considers him as a friend not a lover.

Kasimasi has a good mix of comedy and drama which the comedy part faded away towards the end of the series. The animation and music were good but nothing really special. Overall, Kasimasi is a good romance comedy once you ignored the whole guy becoming a girl thing. I'll give Kasimasi a 4 out of 5.

    It was really confusing and attractive in the end but shouldn't the authors at least tell us wht their desicion was?? And if i were to predict the ending i think Hazumu would say "would you be my bride?" to Tomari lol

    Yasuna probably realized that Hazumu choose her because of her state, and after she got better, maybe she thought that she have to live her own life and let Hazumu to do the same. But that's only mine opinion;) I think the same about the thing Hazumu wanted to say to Tomari :) Happy Ending;)
