^ That death did came abruptly. I don't really get it, I mean, suddenly there's a vehicle in the midst of that peaceful city. I swear, I don't remember seeing that in the previous episodes (though I tend to forget). What makes me wonder even more, is that that "car" (or at least those driving it) didn't even got out to help Yuuko. Wouldn't you usually apologize or call an ambulance in such a case?! It's kinda freaky. o.O

What the fuck was that?

I mean, they finally can be happy, then you get "owned" by a car?

Are you serious?

Horrible men, extemely rushed.

How can you not "rush" a car hitting someone?

I hated the way Yuuko got hit by the car. I mean wtf, it was so random, yet extremely predictable. When I saw the scene where she went to pick up the ball, I was all like "She's sooo gonna get hit by a car." and then the next moment, BAM. I don't get why the driver didn't stop to help her, doesn't make sense at all. The city also seems deserted all the time aside from the main cast, the driver appearing out of no where and the random death just killed the episode.

She was already dead by the time they reached her.

... really? That came so suddenly and had no build-up or impact whatsoever. It's just "Wait, she's dead now?". This could have been handled much better. And why wouldn't she be in an ambulance or brought to a hospital? Blah.

So what, killing Amamiya really was the answer? But there was a scene that existed just to say that something simple and violent like that wouldn't work!

I think this whole series has a habit of betraying its own premises (remembering the first series' unfeasibly happy conclusion to the bitter love triangle and the convenient conclusion to the amnesia story). A self-loathing, hateful, mentally ill girl like Yuko as seen in episode 6 wouldn't so easily become happy. This just makes her seem like a shallow character.

I'm starting to think it's trying a really raw form of manipulation; first it's tempestuous to create tension, then it's idyllic to dispel the tension...and in this case, goes right back in the other direction with SUDDENLY A CAR.

It pains me to say, yes, her death was done so poorly it was laughable...

interestingly, Yuuko's character page (I assumed it happened in the VN) says she died trying to save Mizuki and was pregnant at the time. I'm saddened that her tragic death was so watered down for the anime.

It was clear that something is going to happen, but this... It was so ridiculous!.. And it happened on Christmas eve... Too much cliche. Was it so difficult to think of something better? I`m dissappointed, rather good storyline was spoiled...

An unnecessary tragedy. Their aim was not rendering a good story, they just tried to make the audience cry as much as they can. A cheap way to become famous and sell a lot of DVDs. Result? Epic win of theirs. There are a lot of up votes for this series in every website. I don't believe that they actually reserved this high of a rank with such a second class show.

They did it way better in the VN. Here her death just seems rushed and it was way less emotional. Still liked the episode for the most part though.

So I JUST finished ep 10 and holy f.....

Right when Yuu and Mizuko found her and the music kicked in, I started bawling. Omfg.
He left her alone under a tree to die!
Seriously, that was the most horrible way for her to pass away.
