The scene gets me to laugh every time I watch it. I love cute farewells like this and has inspired me to do the same with friends on a number of occasions. And when thinking about scenes like this that occurred over the course of the year that were both amusing and touching, this one wins. No, there isn’t much meaning or inspiration to me from it, but it’s something simple yet surprisingly effective, especially in terms of emotion and comedy. It’s a lesson a majority of anime should learn in terms of characterization and storytelling. Fortunately, Rinne no Lagrange nailed it with this scene which is easily one of my favorite and one of the most brilliant and unforgettable of the year.
