I suspect that, with access to the house and the blessing of the family, he may receive financial assistance from insurance now too, both in trust for the girls, but also for him (from his older sister). So hopefully he won't need to work too many jobs now. (Also, of course, he could get the jobs near their home, even though he has to commute to school.)

Doesn't really matter where the jobs are, though I suspect there are more of them close to university. The time he spends commuting is time he isn't working. I guess he could try to study a bit, if he can manage his schedule so he takes the train when it's not crowded.

Well, sure, but I suspect his lifestyle will now change in such a way where it doesn't matter that he isn't spending his every free moment working. With the help of the insurance money and some careful budgeting, he should be able to work on the weekends and during the months that he's not in school, which is how a lot of university students do it.

Well with the blessing of other families, i'm sure that Yuuta also received some financial help from them (maybe for Hina, Miu and Sora school's expenses)

It is good for them to move to their home.
At least only one of them is commuting far away...
Well Yuuta is in university and has more freedom to adjust their schedule...

First part of the last episode... T-T... But, it ended on such a great note! They decided to give the house over to Yuuta, that's a big plus with a family of that size. It'll also make going to and from school several times easier on the girls.

Only thing I'm upset about is that they had to opt for an anime original ending... Here's hoping for more of this series somewhere down the line!

As far as I understand it, isn't this an ending that's pretty much in line with the original source, minus a few details? Is anything of consequence changed?

As someone who lost her parents to a plane crash when I was the same age as Hina (January 17th 1993), this series resonated with me deeply. The girls are truly lucky to have Yuuta for an uncle.

I was pretty sure that the series is on-going.

Well, yes... but, from what I understand at least, the ending we were shown in the anime is (essentially -- see last page for some deviations) the same as the end of Volume 1 of the novel. So if the anime were to continue into a future season, it could just pick up from Volume 2 and continue. To be more specific...

Spoiler for Comparison to Novel 1 ending:


Sort of like I was saying before, this whole anime is basically a prologue to the real story that begins with what happened at the very end of episode 12.

I'd like that to add that the inverse is true as well: Yuuta is very lucky to have such amazing, considerate (overly considerate IMO) nieces who seem quite perceptive of their situation and don't want to "bother" anyone. To me, such an idealistic portrayal of children is more "unrealistic" than the fact that a broke college student is raising a family by themselves. I actually think the latter is a more common situation than some people think. However the emotional support and love you receive from the people you're taking care of can make the struggle much easier. Yuuta is fully aware that these girls appreciate what he's doing, and that really makes a difference for parents in general.

That's very true, but their outward grief is so incredibly muted that I just find it hard to believe that any group of kids might honestly remain so composed as Sora and Miu did (Particularly a 14 year old girl that's emotional enough and dramatic enough to throw a fit and act moody because the guy she likes saw her naked). There doesn't seem to be even any subtle changes in the girls' demeanors, there's hardly any moments where their pain catches up to them and causes them to hurt or withdraw or act pained in any way... even whenever someone's pain and grief is subtle it leaves a mark that's more apparent than what's happened here. I mean, I could understand them reaching this stage where their pain is more dull, muted and under their control given some time, but wasn't their karaoke session literally the next day after learning about the fact that their parents died? To be able to have that sort of fun without missing a beat, smiling and laughing the entire time with nothing about your body language or demeanor signaling the fact that you've undergone a horrible trauma in the past twenty-four hours, is something I just have trouble imagining. I'll keep your post in mind should I ever watch the series again, though, since you speak with such conviction; I'm admittedly not always the most observant person, so subtlety is sometimes lost on me and there might be a lot of things I failed to notice.

Well, they've made some critical changes (to people) that will made it quite difficult to adapt volume 2 faithfully. Of course, volume 1 was not entirely faithful anyway. That is not to say it can't have another season. They can just take parts of volume 2 and patch it with other stuff, maybe blending the manga spinoffs again. Then go on to volume 3. I think Volume 4 will be a good volume to end if there's a season 2.

I'm totally okay with this anime original ending...

so Yuuta decided to do a proposal before a confession... nice!!! and Sora become more straight-forward girl now...

Hina totally owned this episode (and this anime too)
feel glad that finally those adults decide to support their life.

so in the end?? are they moving to bigger apartment or to the girls' old house??
too bad they should leave their neighbour and that nice city

Well, I think sales of the game and increased sales of the novels and various manga will also factor into it. The Blu-Ray sales for volume 1 were fairly middling -- not a disaster, but not generally what would be seen as "sequel territory" in the strictest sense. We'll see also if the DVDs contribute anything to the totals when the first DVD is released in a few weeks.

I guess I just have a different definition of what an "anime original ending" is...

The PSP game. Bandai Namco is one of the show's production partners, and even had a bunch of TV spots right on the first anime Blu-Ray volume, so they're pushing it pretty hard. That's why I suspect, if the game manages to sell well, it could still open the door to a sequel even if the Blu-Ray sales are average. But we'll see...

I fear for what content that game may have to follow recent trends set by Oreimo and Madoka.
