Heh, glad I waited on reading this thread until after the final episode. I think I would have been perturbed greatly if the anime ended differently. Although, I'm not gonna hate on it because he didn't end up with Linda because she was my favorite, I'm still happy there was a couple at the end.

Granted, I have only read the translations on this thread, but I still don't necessarily read that last part as tragic. More as philosophic. It is weird that it doesn't specifically mention Koko, but I'm not quite sure where every one is getting the idea that he doesn't end up with her, or anybody.

I wish she'd been mentioned or there. It seems like Linda is still watching over him in the end which is nice but it seems like a regression at the end. Philosophical and not following on the previous page. The last two pages coloured my impression of the previous chapter. I wish the last line had been "Koko!"

He is back at university with Linda. I'm just not sure Koko really wanted to go back to university. Law doesn't seem like her thing. How Banri will finish university is beyond me. But perhaps that is part of what makes it hopeful. He is going to try it.

How did the light novel end?Ive heard that the novel ending is different than the anime ending. It has a lot of similarities to sakurasou and Ill im curious if its as shitty as sakurasou or not... Who ends up with who? Also Banri x Koko and Linda x Mitsuo? And what happens to chinami and 2D.kun?

Yes, I am curious is the manga still going on or is it completed? I saw KOKO in the last episode but was wondering if there was more in the LM? It could not have possibly ended with someone left struggling. Does anyone have any details? Is a season 2 coming out ever?

Hey, so I was having a discussion with someone on Ghost Banri...and I just wanted to know if...the events that took place during the beach day were caused by him(the rain, car etc.) I wanted to know if there was indeed supernatural elements in this series?

I thought the book wrote it so you don't know if it is supernatural or just in Banri's damaged brain. It is purposefully unclear. The writing is also surreal at times, all which was skipped in the anime.

Even the very end was quite surreal to me in the book.

Anime ends in the second last chspter, at the end other than two pages.

Novel is finished, finished before the anime ended. Manga adaptation not sure uf it continues as I never read it.

Ah I see...I thought it was more in Banri's head.....but man, reading this thread, it's crazy how this actually ended as opposed to the anime.

Well thanks for answering man. It was nice talking to you again.

I think the mirror part at the end could mean he is finnally getting his memory back, or maybe it symbolizes the mirror that koko and banri both carry because i so wish they just give us a for sure ending with koko and banri...

I think the ending still very vaguely implies it was Koko's hand he reached for. I remember Banri saying that even if he forgets, he'll ultimately default back to Koko one way or another. That and she would just as well come running back. That's at least what I expect if everything panned out identical to the anime. Admittedly, I've only read the last part of the LN trough this forum and a possibly incorrectly translated scan. That also begs the question whether the anime's ending is completely alternate and all loose ends are tied, or if it's just a setup for the LN's last page. I believe it's the former, considering he returns to Tokyo with his memories as opposed to without. It's also mentioned that the ending starting at the credits is completely anime original. It implies that the anime's ending is a replacement to the LN ending, but I just wish this was completely verified. Ugh, I just want them to make an OVA episode where Banri and Koko are married, so we can validate that the anime actually ends with him conquering his memory crisis.

If he had said "Koko?" or if she had said, "It's Koko, don't you remember me?" then it would have helped. As it was, the open ending kind of ruined it for me which is too bad.

I have a feeling that the anime ending was written before the book as they came out at the same time but anime pre-production schedules mean they were probably working from an outline from the author rather than the final work. Did they consult the author about the ending that was different? Did they approve? Who knows, I assume so. Alternate ending? Changed her mind? Just wanted them to be a bit different? Unfortunately she never said as far as I know.

The afterward in the final novel volume 8 is short, just 2 pages and the first two thirds is spent talking about a rare big snowstorm they had in Tokyo that day! Not very helpful. Then Yuyuko is thanking those who made the manga, the anime and the game, and the illustrator for all the wonderful pictures, thanking me for buying the books, hoping I will buy their next product, saying they have to have a long talk with fellow ASCII Media works author Yuasa sensei... nothing about the endings of the book and the anime being different. The afterward isn't dated which is too bad as some authors do date them. However, that silly mention of the snowstorm taking up 2/3 of the afterward means that it must have been written on or around February 15th, 2014, while the novel came out March 8th... phew, cutting it close! The anime ended that March. Doesn't seem like she has a twitter account or anything or else I'd ask her.
