My Wife is a High School Girl 13 - Twilight of the Cockroaches

Well, what better use for a 6-day weekend than to put the final QC touches on the final episode of My Wife is a High School Girl? No doubt the manga story continues on, but the current crisis of Iwasaki-sensei finding out about the secret marriage is resolved reasonably enough. And for as much flak as this show gets, from its original subbers and others, I still came to appreciate it in the end. A lot of romance anime end at the love confession, or maybe a first-kiss scene, so it's quite rare to see the ups and downs and the conflicts and reconciliations of a married couple. It's especially rare in the ecchi/harem genres; this show, Rizelmine, and Godannar are the only three examples I can think of off-hand, as most shows involving married life tend to be less otaku-oriented, like Human Crossing or Rumiko Takahashi Anthology. It's just a pity we never got a flashback showing how their relationship got started.

As usual, if you see subbing mistakes (as opposed to subjective editing/localization decisions) in these releases, please let me know so that I can correct them. In addition, credit also goes to xess, Riza|Hawkeye, and the rest of the crew at the now-defunct fansubbing/DVD-ripping group LIME-Anime for soldiering through this series back in 2005. While they weren't able to get me the original scripts due to FTP/HDD crashes, I still would've been hard-pressed to release this series without their contributions.
