Sakamoto desu ga?: Unforgettable Conclusion – Season Finale

Review: Sakamoto desu ga? Special Episode

Sometimes, it’s just better to leave well enough alone. The Blu-ray special episode of Sakamoto desu ga? was intended to be the final TV episode before the Kumamoto earthquake disrupted the airing schedule. While I didn’t particularly enjoy this episode, I felt it was worth discussing given the lack of new anime content during this dead week. Let’s explore its highlights and drawbacks.

Lack of Humor and Excessive Clip Segment

The most glaring issue with this special episode was the lack of genuinely funny moments. The first ten minutes primarily consisted of a clip segment, which felt underwhelming for a supposedly final episode. This choice made the overall viewing experience somewhat disappointing.

Sakamoto’s Time in America

Following the clip segment, the episode shifted focus towards Sakamoto’s time in America—both real and imagined. However, it was unfortunate that the portrayal of Americans relied on grotesque cartoonish caricatures, even in a fantasy sequence. We should have learned from the ANA commercial debacle that such depictions carry a clear message – they are crass and unfunny.

Comparison to the Original TV Ending

Personally, I found the original TV ending of Sakamoto desu ga? to be far superior to this special episode. While I’m not deeply attached to the series, this episode failed to live up to the standards set by its predecessor. Despite its flaws (especially the ethnic stereotyping), it managed to serve its purpose to some extent.
