RyanA on the end of Nodame Finale

At Aloe Dream:

And, that's it... hmm? Sadly I didn't find what I was looking for in this end, though I don't know what that might have been... nostalgia, sentiment, fulfillment? I'm not sure. The lead-up to this end was not bad, but the composition to tie it all together felt quite expected, mechanical, and generic. Gut motive that the manga did not end this way.

Emphasis mine. By the way, I heard that manga ending sucked.
