Flip Flappers – Episode 13 (Series Finale & Review)

Girls, be adventurous.


We’ve come to the finish line in predictably bright, bombastic, heart-on-our-sleeves fashion. I’m looking forward to talking about it–but first, as is tradition, let’s start with a spoiler-free review for anyone interested in picking up this fascinating, flawed, heartwarming little series. I’ll let any newcomers know when to click away so they don’t have the finale spoiled for them. As for those of you joining me for our last round of analysis, feel free to scroll on down past those many words and dig on in.

  1. Thank you for the analyses this season–ご苦労様でした!
    I think you nailed the part where Cocona and Papika’s stories were both resolved last episode so they should’ve spent more time resolving the other arcs.
    I can’t tell if Mimi got a satisfying conclusion because the issue of parents accepting their children’s independence is a complex game of compromise and it’s hard to do that justice in a few metaphorical fight scenes.
    Also I can’t get Mimi/Papikana’s chronology straight: they escaped, had Cocona, were captured, tried to escape, got attacked, Mimi went berserk–somehow Salt escaped and Papikana reverted to teenage years–and Cocona was raised under Aesculapius supervision. I guess the sequence at the beginning of ep13 must have been a metaphor for the intervening years then.
