Encore! Encore! Encore!
We’re finally done and boy that was a very exhausting season!
Episode 12 pokes fun at one of the most loved fairly tales out there and showed us one last Akarin Paradox. It’s so confusing, Stephen Hawking can’t even figure it out. And, uh… We can’t believe this is the last episode… Season 3, when? WHEN?! ;_;
Please enjoy this episode, folks! Oh and thank you for following this anime using our fansub version. We really do apologize for the honest mistakes we made and we assure they will be fixed in the batch torrents.

Pacchin — a word meaning “slingshot”. Yui is referring to the way the toy shoots upward, but it is clearly not a slingshot.
Popping Eyes (Poppin Ai) — a toy which was popular amongst Japanese children in the 1980s. It is made out of an elastic material, which, when pressed against a hard surface, will return to its original form. This produces a force which propels it upward, sometimes quite high into the air.
Cat’s Cradle — a game played between two people with string. The objective is to make several figures out of the string, including the titular Cat’s Cradle. It is a prevalent game originating in some form or another across numerous cultures around the world – one of which being Japan.
Kendama — a toy of Japanese origin which consists of a ball connected via string to a wooden piece of sorts (a spike with a cup on either side). The objective is to try and land the ball (with a hollow in the middle) onto one of either the spike, or two cups. There are more advanced ways of playing as well.
Beigoma — a traditional spinning top in Japan, which may have its origins in China. Interestingly, the “bey” in “Beyblade” is admittedly derived from “beigoma”. A big difference being that instead of a rip chord and launcher, beigoma are spun using a chord wrapped directly around them.
Ohajiki — a Japanese equivalent of glass marbles. The only real difference is that they are slightly more flat.
Menko — a Japanese card game popularized during the Edo period. It involves smacking down cards, which may be more entertaining than playing poker…
Taketonbo — originating from China, it is a toy bamboo propeller which, when spun from a person’s hands, flies into the air and gradually comes back down.
