OP here, I just finished my marathon of the whole anime series
Turns out I wasn't being deluded about it, It was just a good, if not better than what I remember. It was better then expected, but also underwhelming, it hardly healed that pressing feeling in my chest that reacts to the show and/or my waifu as I originally thought. As for my feelings towards my waifu, it's more or less the same, I think.
Anyway, sorry for making such a shitty thread, I would delete it if I could/knew how.
