Compared to the forst 5 volumes of the series the end was just plain sad :(
Authpr afterword made the reason for it clear though, if the creator feels down there is no way the work will remain a light comedy.

I'm OK with a sad end. But that went way to fast … but considering the afterword its understandable she wasn't up to doing this kind of story any more.

I really wish there'd have been a happy ending. The sad ending is really hard to stomach and I feel pretty down now... I never expected the ending to be so sudden and contrasting to the overall trend of the story.

I can understand that the author perhaps didn't have any positive emotions to reflect in the work, but this was really disappointing.

Something like this needed a happy ending... IMO anyway

I feel that the ending was more open ended, but that's just me? It was sad in a bittersweet way. Also the afterword was an sad but interesting story, I never knew the author was female.

I didnt feel completely satisfied with this. Sure the ending was sad but Aki's last words felt kinda vague as to what could be in store for them as their lives progressed.

I kinda wished they couldve showed some sort of time skip of at least a year to show hows things wouldve turned out, but thats just my opinion.

As a whole i really enjoyed this series from start to finish

I had just finished reading Sundome before this, so I was expecting an ending on that level of sadness, but this wasn't so.

I mean, Aki & Sora can always pick up their relationship at anytime, right?

Aki made the right choice in my opinion, she saw how her mother and father ended up and she didn't want it to end like that for her and sora.

Nope, not just you. It is open to interpretation. "I wish your choices lead to happiness" could go either way. That's what makes me unhappy, though. Not only does it feel ambiguous, it's unfinished. Supposedly because of a certain new law, the authoress felt pressured to end it quickly.

In my opinion they will together :P. Sora love Aki and he don't want lose her. His choices is be together with Aki. (Chapter 29 , page 39-46). And Aki said to "I can overcome anything". (Chapter 29, page 41). Love is always on top.

That open ending doesn’t feel right when the MC has incest and orgies errrriday through the entire story and ends with “this relationship won't work” seems like a huge hit in the nuts by the author. I also dislike the fact that the main character doesn’t seem to have any remorse whatsoever for banging all the girls in the serie.

It feels like the author took the story/theme seriously for a few chapters in the beginning, then between volume 1 and 5 went with non sense sex with multiple girls which didn't contribute anything to the "PLOT"(read: what plot?) and then to just come back with a realistic ending.


I think a nice boat ending would have solved everything. Or like Faded_Illusion said, an extra chapter with a timeskip.

Damn man.

I was not expecting that. I mean, the mother was just dead? That was a bit sudden.

But I guess death is, as the author notes in the afterward. It's odd. I lost my father to cancer just under half a year ago, and it still feels like it was a bit sudden. I mean, he only had it for a year, and I've seen examples of people battling on with it after years. I too thought he'd always be there but it is how it is. Nothing can change what has happened.

Sudden? Ir was certain since chapter 5 that one of the sisters died and chapter 17 made clear which one it was... Maybe you just forget about it since it was so long ago.

Accepting the death of someone who was close to you is never easy, in fact as long as there is nothing wrong with you it may be impossible and only time may make it a little bit easier.
As for cancer it is a nasty illness, it come in many different varietes and can attack many different parts of the body (sometimes several at once), even worse the chemiotherapy used to fight with it is harmful on its own and depending on the patient own health and resistance some of the combinations that work for one person may be unacceptable for other :/ Some people manage to get through it, some don't, the most terrifying thing about it in my opinion is the way the people lose hope and give up when after the long and difficult treatment their condition is only getting worse.

Damn that ending hit hard.

The reality that a lover you care for so deeply that being apart kills you inside, is pretty much disappearing from your life completely must be agonizing, especially someone you've known your whole life and has been the closest person you've ever known. Even though it's incestuous, it is still a torrid love affair that any man and woman could have shared. It doesn't take away the pain of loss one feels.

Damn, when Aki leaves on the train before he could cry "don't go" I swear he was thinking of jumping in front of the next one and offing himself.

I think the final scene is really just a reaffirmation of them moving on separately. Even though they choose to try and make it ambiguous as possible, the tone of the last line certainly feels like one that suggest they are thinking "I love you so much, that I have to let you go. because being together will destroy us both, just like it destroyed our parents."

To be honest, I don't even think Sora will bother with women unless he gets pushed into something like almost everyone one of his past encounters. I think he's just going to live like a zombie for 6-10 years while only feeling emotions, yet suppressing them mightily, when Aki visits the family a couple times a year. It'll probably look like the final scene. They both looking like they want to rush into each others arms, kiss passionately. and ball their eyes out. But in the end they just keep exchanging ambiguous pleasantries with a blank forced smile.

I feel like Sora will either end up marrying into a loveless relationship or eventually just kill himself far away from his hometown or Aki. I don't think either one of them will ever really find true happiness again.

I'm not sure it was the "right" choice. But it was the most logical one. I find the final sentence is dramatically ironic. They do wish for each other to find happiness because they love each other. But, I have my doubts that will ever truly happen. I get that feeling that they'll both end up in agony and I'm not sure if either one would ever truly recover and find true "happiness".

This is an open ending.
But the chapter'name is Aki's Sora. Probably Sora and Aki ended together.

I'll sign on to the "Open Ending" theory.

Damn this was a strange story, started out seriously, got weird and ended very seriously...
