While visiting Kaede in the hospital, Sakuta breaks into tears and regrets his inability to save her previous life, causing his scars to reopen. An older Shoko, whom he had met when he was younger, treats his injuries. As he is bathing, she reads entries from Kaede's diary that she began writing shortly after her initial memory loss; expecting to regain her old memories and Sakuta to respond negatively, Kaede created her list of goals to provide him with happy recollections once she reverted to her past self. The next day, Sakuta spots a note left by Shoko before finding out both versions of her have disappeared entirely; Rio suggests Shoko was an illusion created by Sakuta. Upon coming home, Mai reads the note and storms away, prompting Sakuta to follow her to her filming location. On an impromptu date, Mai apologizes for not being there to help him through his crisis, to which he answers he is simply happy to have her by his side. In a post-credits scene, Sakuta and Kaede pack their bags at the hospital when he thanks her and she states her interest in going to school, knowing she is no longer alone.
