Yoshiyuki Sakurai was born when Sakura Yoshino, weary of being alone for so long, wished upon a prototype artificial wish-granting magical sakura tree for a family. Years later, though, the tree starts malfunctioning, granting all wishes, regardless of how impure. Sakura and Otome Asakura at first try to handle all the problems caused by it, but the situation gradually worsens and they have to choose whether or not to save Hatsunejima (the island in Japan where the story takes place) by deactivating the tree which would erase Yoshiyuki's existence in the process.

Minatsu is gone and I didn't like how they only mentioned her like once throughout the entire 13 eps. They couldn't do a single ep for the cast to visit her or explain what happened to her since then? What a way to trash the bread-winner and saving factor of the prior season. That leaves this season floating in the water as to whats going to carry us throughout the story. "WHAT THE @#" is probably what your saying right now, but don't lose hope just yet. Also, they were serious on how Jun'ichi and Nemu are not main characters anymore. I tolerated it last season, hoping they would eplain where and what happened to Nemu this season, but they don't ever mention her at all. What a rip-off! How can they deny what made Da Capo what it is in the first place. That is why I gave that huge speech at the start of my review of Da Capo II.

And so, with venting over with, here are my thoughts:

Wierd how Anzu treated the main lead like garbage last time and yet is so warm to him this time. It also seems like Jun'ichi and Nemu all over again with the main lead and Yume.

O..K.. I guess Otome (the big Nemu) is a better match for him as they are at complete peace when around each other. Though she is the childhood friend with promises this time and if you've been keeping up with my reviews, you should know what i'm going to say about this, although she is not the average/shy girl. That role is thankfully wasted on that weakling Koko.

We have the puppet show in ep 4 and they intended from the start that it would be shown taking up half the ep. However, this is a HUGE indicator to where this story is headed. Pay extreme attention as this is going to payoff big time later on. As for the characters, during the puppet show, Otome gets very emotional as her lines are actually her true feelings as you will see later on.

We learn Anzu's secret of memory in ep. 6 though it was rushed rather quickly for my tastes. All that detective work is not cool either when it drags out 80% of the episode.

On a better note, we see Sakura just as the info gathered points out. Did Sakura's old age + being alone for SO long finally catch up to her (though Jun'ichi is right next door)? Is she subconciously controlling the tree again causing tragedies wherever she goes? If you haven't figured it out - I'm trying to pump-up the story as its pretty bland at this point. After 3 seasons of De Capo already, it seems the fire is finally burning out. However, this is only the halfway point so stay cheerful.

Sakura really took drastic measures this time. The never-ending wish factory of a tree has been the blessing and curse of the island for far too long. If she doesn't stand to make a change, we lose our main lead! Thats not going to work at all. Good luck Sakura.

What the heck? The tree is unstoppable this time. Did Sakura and Jun'ichi really just do that? What was that old idiot planning on doing anyway? Was he going to throw his magic candy at the tree? This is bad, really bad. The answer is so clear yet the consequences will leave a tremendous scar on the island as people like Jun'ichi and the main lead are once in a lifetime. Otome is so screwed. What a tremendous burden.

What a change of pace. This time the main lead is going through all the pain and suffering and he has to face it alone as he is slowly being forgotten. The only people left are his sisters who remember him. This is a new kind of pain as he did nothing wrong but he has to pay for it in full. This is new to Da Capo as everyone is used to being saved by the main lead. This time he needs saving and no one can help him!!

After seeing that nice but somewhat generic ending, I let out a sigh that could of been heard throughout the planet (yeah it was me, it wasn't your imagination). This season was just fine at best.

So to recap all of Da Capo:

Da Capo was the intro and the ending string of eps (17-26) were ASTOUNDING.

Da Capo Second Season was BRILLIANT the entire way through the 26 eps. Every single ep was funny, had great storyline, or poked at the heart to jerk those tears. The best of Da Capo!!!

Da Capo II was shocking how they changed the cast and started a new story, but I eventually got over it and by the end, I had one of my biggest breakdowns ever. I will never forget Minatsu's story.

Then there is this one. Did just enough to keep the Da Capo legacy going.

I mentioned before that this road never ends and I guess they were serious. Look out for Da Capo If!!! Until next time...
