Well I was speaking mostly for those who haven't read it because the ending might not be exactly definitive for some. I've been shipping them from Day 1 and the end can't be anything else but that for me. It's just that again most people will probably want some direct, in your face obvious disclosure, but then given the nature of the story all of us should have been expecting a not-so-obvious ending from a mile away
Ah ok, my mistake.
I still have high hopes that they saved all the goodies for the final episode and we won't be disappointed. Maybe we get to see a movie/OVA come out sometime kinda like an epilogue (just like Touch). They have enough (original) material to make a good one.
I'm not sure about that. Even after reading it despite the context it's still rather debatable to me. Like it's been said, the preview opens a huge can of WTF and even when the finale is shown, it might just completely depend on how you interpret it.
I'm sorry but I cannot agree with you. I'm afraid that you missed the entire subtle story-telling from Cross Game in true Adachi-style in the entire manga. The ending is so obvious, unless you favored another pairing.
(I posted my reply to your post on your wall instead of the CG-thread to avoid spoiling others and causing unnecessary drama in the last week of Cross game)
