I think it's still possible to get that 'fight' between those two. Since Komari was not really present in this episode, there's still a chance for them to have their little exchange.

Ah! I know a way they could show one loop, without non-vn readers noticing.

In the middle of the series, they make a summary episode, but with some hard- to-notice different choices.

Right before Mio or Kurugaya route could be a good place for this ep.

Righ after Rin2 there could be also an episode repeating some scenes with different choices, something like the 2 last evangelion eps.

It would make sense, because of Riki's mind state, he would think "what if I had done different", but at the same time feeling like he did.

They could include some Rin perspective also.

And then we enter refrain...

I was just wondering what everyone is thinking the last episode will be? Or the last scene? supposing that Refrain gets animated, and my recent change of heart, I believe that Anego should be the "canon" ending and Rin/Riki stay as friends in the end. Having not played the EX routes...

Imagine that...

I hope they would do a semi-original ending where Riki and Rin just live on after arriving at the hospital themselves. I always hated how the "true" ending of Little Busters was a cop-out and ruined the whole theme of Riki and Rin finally growing up.

However, to be honest, this is a pretty unrealistic hope for me to have. I'd settle for a Rin ending

Just think about it. Supposedly Anego gets the real ending after refrain. Refrain is all about friendship and not about a particular romance between Rin and Riki... I'm just talking here, but it'd be a nice gamble if the true ending was that.

Or Yurippe-sama but I'm not really sure of how her plot devolves...

That would be a bonus episode if anything. I'd rather see a beach episode, they were heading there in the ending anyway. Bathing suits anyone?

I'm quite sure, if they intend to primarily please the VN veterans, that they'll go with the true end to the vanilla game.

What would impress me about the anime, being connected to a particular delusion of mine, is that during the hospital scene in the end, Riki sits up in bed just in time to hear a voice - "Riki-kun...?" He looks over to the door and sees Aya. Cue "season 2"

By the end of Refrain there's basically two possible outcomes, one where no clear pairing for Riki is made (the girls more or less joking around dating him) and the other with Riki and Rin together...it all depends on one of the answers you give during Refrain.

That said...there's other scenes that make people shoot theories about Riki ending up with other girls, the most popular being him ending up with Anego due to her getting her True ending only after Refrain is finished (and it seems to be set in the real world as well).
Not sure about anything EX related...

The only plausible girls for the non-Rin endings I can think of are Anego (2nd ending), Sasami (hers take place post-refrain), and Kud (Kud Wafter).

EX has some extra scenes: notably some fluffy scenes between Rin and Riki (kissing, hugging, petting) in the epilogue prior to Kyousuke's arrival. Additionally, they also lead to H scenes in EX...

If we go by timeline, Sasami's would be the "true" end. Of course, each girls' fanclubs will always stand by the assertion that their heroine won....

I never got to that ending when I played the VN. I only played through the game only once. Found this cuz I felt the segment in the anime was unnatural and awkward and lame. Now I understand why, it was just bad directing.

After watching episode 4, I still really wonder if there is going to be "Reset" thing in the anime or not when each route is complete.

I'm OK if they're going to adjust each route if finally the main plot still there. But after watching latest eps, I don't think it might not have a reset until Rin1 complete. And I think many reset are needed since it shows how Riki and Rin have become stronger and stronger

In addition, I think reset is good choice if anime wants Riki to have a deep romantic relationship to each girls like in a game. (Since some route like Haruka or Mio really involve how Riki will love each of them when the event of story progress)

Pretty much every girl route Riki and the girl's love is pretty important. Funny enough you get a lesser sense of "love" between the two in the Rin routes than in the other girl routes. Then again Rin is a lot more awkward compared to the other girls AND they are childhood friends so that doesn't help in the actual display of love between them.
