For those curious, today chapter 25 of the manga was translated and includes scenes which weren't in the anime about Samon, Mahiro and Hanemura

Just finished watching the full series. I have to say that it started a little slow for me at first, but it really picked up around episode 7 or when the two began their attack on the Kusaribe with the army. It didn't have any fanservice and if it did I was too focused on the story, which is a plus. One thing still bugs me, does Yoshino have any feelings for Hakaze? After watching the very end, I believe he does, but I think he still loves Aika.

Well, the anime’s ending seems to strongly impled that he really has feeling for Hakaze. But at the same time, you can’t just forget about your feeling to your late lover even if she’s already dead. Just like in Rurouni Kenshin (Samurai X) where Kenshin still has lingering feelings for his late wife, Tomoe, even though he already moves on to Kaoru. I think it’s a natural lingering feelings for a couple who once loved each other before death separated them. To just forget your previous love for the sake of the new one is a sign of a shallow love, and Yoshino's love to Aika isn't shallow .

I just wish that Hakaze and Yoshino did something before they final battle. I felt they needed a little something more besides the pool scene. I just hope that they make a sequel to this series. I thought it was really enjoyable to watch.

Anime at least implies Yoshino ends up with Hakaze. Japan has this weird obsession about not ever being explicit about the romantic end, and Okada as a writer is of no exception in most (all?) of her works.

Which on an off topic note, annoys me a little bit because my list of osananajimi wins/loss record isn't as solid as it could be, due to maybe around half of them wins and losses are implied, and can be up to interpretation. *end rant*

Apparently in the manga Yoshino turns down Hakaze. For once, I liked the anime ending over the manga ending.

Even if he did turn her down I find it inevitable that they end up together regardless of the medium.

I would hope so. He's obviously still incredibly in love with Aika. Sure, eventually that will fade, and he'll be able to move on, but as things stand NOW, he wouldn't be doing anyone any favors by getting into a relationship with Hakaze while his feelings for Aika were still so strong.

Not saying they couldn't get together eventually down the road, but it just seemed very forced right NOW. I might even put on my fake psychologist hat and say it's got all the earmarks for a relationship bust if they were to move that quickly.

So, the discussion is..."should Yoshino get over the loss of Aika"?

Pro: Yoshino should get over Aika.
It's been one year. He should not get over it for 24/7 365 day.

Con: Yoshino should not get over Aika.
Aika was devoted to him. He should not get over her.

The manga shows Yoshino's doubt about Hakaze's feeling. He calls Hakaze's feeling as suspension bridge effect. In anime, he doesn't have the doubt. So, it's not really a denial.

I don't think that's a question at all, because we all eventually get over loved ones (one might call it a coping mechanism, even). Sure, there are going to be some outliers, but in general, that's how we work as human beings.

The question is whether he was actually over Aika enough to be diving into another relationship. There's nothing wrong with moving on, I just don't think he's actually moved on yet, and his jumping into Hakaze's skirts while still being so emotionally invested in Aika seems ill-advised.

That said, yes, it's a fictional story, and yes, it's an anime, and yes, shipping is very much a thing, so I can hardly fault them putting the two together. If it was real life, however...

Suspension bridge effect? I dunno, but looks more like the 'knight in shining armor' effect for me. I'm gonna disagree with manga!Yoshino with this one; if he has doubt on Hakaze's love, he should be calling her out on maybe 'hero worship' or the idea that Hakaze is in love with the idea of the typical Prince Charming, and not that he looks more attractive because they're in great danger.

But should Yoshino get over Aika? Logical part of me says he should move on, but I'm kind of a sucker for endings like Gurren Lagann... XD

Gurren Lagann ending? NNNNNNOOOOOOO..........!!!

I prefer an ending that fell in the middle of the two extremes like Rurouni Kenshin’s manga. The male MC is able to move on but still remember and cherish the memory of the deceased loved one. So yeah, much like Zetsuen anime ending that we got.

I just wish that the ending didn't blackout right before they were walking towards each other. I was really invested with their relationship. Then again, I always preferred plots where they leading male and female characters end up together.

I agree with creb, I like Hakaze x Yoshino and want Yoshino to move on.
But we saw Yoshino thinking about Aika during the whole series so I don't think he is prepared to move on by the time the anime finished.
In the manga Hakaze claimed that she won't give up so Yoshino will give in at some point, it's better that Yoshino is fully prepared to move on and is sure that he loves Hakaze.

The pressure of the group having girlfriends and Hakaze by his side all the time can affect him maybe?

I like to think Hakaze will be patient - will need to be patient, but that it'll pay off in the end.

I'm very disappointed that the series is not getting a blu-ray release. Visually, it's a gorgeous series. I wanted to see it in all its beauty. Nevertheless, I will buy the series. It's a Must Have as far as I'm concerned.

^ No BD at all? That’s a shame. Too bad it’s not Sentai Filmworks or Funimation who release it. Zetsuen will get a decent BD release if that happens.
