"People should appreciate Season 2 more. At first, I didn't care for the ending myself, but I later appreciated it more. Hei killed even though he hated it, loses himself, but manages to get it together on his journey with Suo, enjoying his final moment with someone he loves before his self-sacrifice for the greater good of the world. How selfless is that? Comparing Season 1 to Season 2, Hei matured and became a better person. What a transformation. This anime is BADASS and profound."

Hey, I've just rewatched the episode and noticed something just now: Hei is in the list of the people Suou "wants to see" (and most likely the person she wants to see the most, since he's at the end of her flashback). Isn't it obvious that she likes Hei (or has some feelings for him at least)?
I think her relationship with Hei is not impossible...

And, WHY ARE THERE ONLY 3 EPISODES LEFT? >"< This season is too short (and I doubt that everything will be solved in the end). I want MORE!!!

Dammit, only 12 episodes! even with the OVAs, it's only 16: not enough! ...not for an anime as great as this anyway. I feel 25+ is more satisfactory.

Man... i can't believe this is only going to be 12 episodes long. Was hoping for another 25 or so... =(
