Woah. Didn't see THAT one coming. I was sort of expecting the normal sort of romantic comedy anime ending, but this last-minute development is really...
I guess when it's based on a light novel rather than just manga or anime sources, more serious stuff can take place. Or is this an anime-only ending?
Really like how all their friends came through for them. But still. Can't wait for the final episode. And yes, what's going to happen to Yasuko? Chances are, Ryuuji's character just won't let him run away from responsibility. That's always been the one outstanding thing about him... he truly cares for the people around him.
