Mania Grade: C+

* Series: Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu -Purezza-
There is a resolution to the “Is Haruka going to become an idol?” story. Whether that resolution is satisfying or not really depends on how you like predictability. At least the writers did not drag out this inane storyline. About the only highlight was the speech by Milan the idol singer, but it sounded slightly odd coming from her, a speech about choices and other paths that one might have followed in life. And how is it that all manner of cajoling could not rouse Yuuto out of his indecisive stupor, but just one little, not particularly good, pop melody and a short speech from a pop singer suddenly awaken his true feelings and courage? Sure. Right. Okay. Bring on more cliches.
