That's an acceptable interpretation on the ED sequence.
She's the only without a partner. It's good that the talk with Iori seems to have lightened up Inaba a bit, the guy in Inaba's house made a comment that in the past Inaba doesn't say she's heading out. Saying you're heading out seems to be a common showing of good relationship with family members in Japan.
On another topic. Tomorrow is the day of the large anime con. Chose that I'm not going to bring a car, and just ride a bus to go there. The gasoline expenses for the car could be used to buy some low priced souvenirs instead. I guess it shows that I'm really short on cash these days.
Maybe the ED describes how Inaba feels to be a "fifth wheel" for the club since Aoki x Yui & Taichi x Iori even though all of her friends don't think her as such. Her friends flying & smiling while she herself falling may indicate that she brought it upon herself.
Yeah, seen the episode quite a while ago. From reading the KC thread, you can see that there's a lot of people who complain that them (Iori & Inaba) still being friends while agree to compete each other for the same guy they love is a cop-out solution. I personally don't think so since the story is still far from over and there's still something to their "cease fire" that's not shown yet.
I ship characters, even today.
But careful not to get too fanatical in promoting my opinions of course. Pairings that come out of nowhere? I guess that's what fanfics are for.
After seeing episode 3, I thought Taichi x Yui has a chance - but I guess that's just wishful thinking on my part. Currently hoping for a Taichi x Iori end. Inaba just seems too much of a pessimist. In real life, I avoid pessimistic people like the plague.
To be honest, I'm not really a shipper-guy. For me, the things that matters are always character development and relationship development. As long as those grounds are well-covered, It doesn't matter for me who ends up with who. Automatically, I hate pairings that "came out of nowhere".
So far, both Taichi x Iori & Taichi x Inaba pairings are good to me (character-wise & relationship-wise). Both Inaba & Iori have their pluses & minuses, so I'll cheer for both of them . As for Yui x Aoki, well... I think it's already set in stone that they'll be together, so why bother? XD
