Well, to be honest it could have ended with Shirou's death if Neene hadn't died and they used the flashback to show how Amane got placed inside the Cocoon. But this is much better.

Riku really does seem to be influenced by older women. Rena getting jealous is also amusing, but let's hope she doesn't become clingy. Nanami is turning into a fairly interesting character, serving as a responsible adult, minus her...erotic actions. From her reactions, I'd assume she lost someone important as well.

Well, his mother passed away when he was really young so this is the result /Freud

I get this strange feeling that she's marked for death.

Yeah, her death flag is flying high.

I mean:
* She's the only healer of the Jinki Users
* She acts as an emotional crutch to a lot of characters
* She's becoming important to Riku, in a universe that exists to solely screw him over.

If she last ten more chapters I'll be impressed.

I'm pretty sure if anyone has plot armor, it's Rena and Riku.

This. You know they'll end up together, living happily ever after.

... well, I'm not so sure about the happy part, but at least they will be together.

Like Neene did?
This isn't shounen, there's no guaranteed happy ending. I wouldn't be surprised if they killed Rena off and Riku snapped, only to end the series once he gains peace of mind.

Neene was a much different character than Rena. Neene was the ideal for Riku, she represented his goal of having Amane back alive again. Her apparent demise and last words crushed Riku because it forced him to realize how badly he had messed up.

Rena on the other hand is very flawed like Riku himself is.

(Also there's that thing with Rena being the main heroine while Neene wasn't.)

Considering that it's Moriyama Daisuke we're speaking of, I can see him pulling off a Chrno Crusade-ish bittersweet ending.

Well, when you kill off a little girl who only loved her Papa, you really can't expect any more than that, can you?

Shoot, the only reason I don't think Joe is about to bite it after that Kamogari Liger (love the design) started attacking in the last chapter is because anytime we've seen a major character die, out of a flashback, it's been sudden or a fatal wound and in the middle of the chapter, not a cliff-hanger.

* Shirou --> Sniped
* Neene --> Disintegrated
* You-nii --> Head cut off after becoming a Kanshu

So this is how Riku will find his true love: through process of elimination. Every other girl he gets close to will die.

It was said in the chapter who it was, it was Ende which was Shirou's coffin princess. And by black haired girl you mean Rena? She was there with all the kids with Riku.

The three coffin princesses we know of are:
Shirou's Ende
Takao's Julie
Riku's Neene

Well, she hit him with her feelings in a manner of speaking. Also, everyone is a surrogate something for everyone else.

The Tsundere in her was strong that moment.
