I guess it's probably too late for needing spoilers, but what the heck...

^ Yup, they showed a cityscape before cutting to the room - Arc de Triomphe
So ... yes - the scene takes place in Paris - Hiroki went with her.

Fujinami went through successful heart surgery and may live a few more years. And Hiroki followed Elis to Paris to begin his career as an artist, while Yanagi covered his back and became the acting art club advisor.

Hiroki's true feelings

I must admit I missed it the first time around, but it became much more clear to me during a rewatch. Let's not forget, Hiroki himself expresses his true feeling quite clearly in episode 20, when he openly admits that Yanagi would be better for Kiri - which is also consistent with his rejection of Kiri in high school.

Now, the show also makes it clear that Hiroki had a crush on Kiri when they were in high school, and that the crush hasn't completely subsided - which is the source for much of the confusion. But I think Hiroki is also able to distinguish between crush and true love. Even while he was attracted to Kiri, he was able to observe Yanagi's dedication and determination toward her... and realized that he fell short. This is probably why he never really fights Yanagi for Kiri's hand; he would be genuinely be happy for them if those two got together. It is only after Kiri rejects Yanagi that he opens himself up to the possibility of a long-term relationship - to see if they can build on what's there.

Alas, it never happens, as Hiroki discovers his love for Elis, and for art - and chooses walk on the path he wanted all along. And meanwhile, Yanagi puts his career on hiatus to pursue Kiri once more... will this lead to a happy ending for everyone involved? One can only hope.

You can watch canvas 2 directly. Watching Canvas -A Motif Sepia Coloured- is not necessary to understand canvas 2.

Yep - the two share no connection at all, save for having an art theme in both of them. (And some characters having a brief cameo). Forget the OVA and go directly for the series.

All of the Canvas series don't share a common storyline or theme other than the "Painting" part of it. Oh yeah, the cute Cameo are good too though ^_^

Its a Romance/Drama anime for most parts. If you were looking for Romance/Ecchi/Comedy anime then I would recommend Goshuushou-sama Ninomiya-kun (ongoing series) for this season.

You know, in most societies, this would be considered the norm and not something to be proud of. It's only really an issue if someone doesn't manage this (or at the least, hopefully this would be so).

I like the character of Ellis though - she really shows growth.

Can't compare to Hagino though! She's awesome.

Canvas 2???? >.< (spoiler warning)

Ok so i just got done watching Canvas 2. I enjoyed watching it up until the last episode. But heres the deal, i dont have a problem with the hole cousin-cousin relation ship. that doesnt get on my nerves, hell i loved da capo. My problem lies in the fact that there was no build up in there relationship. Yes there were some under lining sub-textual and body language (poorly conveyed i might add) that may have hinted that her had some feelings for her. but over all he treated Else like daughter, not even a sister. they even showed clips of them as kids where he was treating her like a kid. Kiri on the other hand was a whole different story. all feels that he had, via 3rd party or strait from himself, was for her. i was very disappointed in the in ending of this anime. anyone else agree?

I'd just suggest you go over this entire thread (okay.. at least the last 20 pages or so?) and you'll see every possible point of view discussed to death by extremely articulate people (and also a few of the usual emotional shouting thugs).

This post was brought to you by the avatar of Tomoko .... fear her plushy toys.

(edit: just noticed your link, Aoie .... heh... hehehe )

See the whole rest of the thread. This was a topic of discussion for a long time. At first glance, most viewers seemed to be surprised by the ending and thought it came out of left field. Upon rewatch, some conceeded that they did indeed lay the groundwork for it (plus or minus the final closing scene, perhaps), but you had to read in between the lines.

Really, the hints about Hiroki's true feelings lie entirely in the whole "painter vs. artist" thing. The show kept dropping hints that he was living a lie (Hagino's story being the most memorable hint of all), but the important part was that Elis and Kiri went part and parcel with that dilemma. If he chose Kiri, that meant he chose to live as a teacher; if he chose to be an artist, that meant he chose Elis (and vice-versa on both accounts). Right, wrong, or indifferent, that's the way it was setup in the show. Essentially, Hiroki spent the whole show in denial about his feelings (which is why you say that he didn't show any feelings for Elis), and it wasn't until the very last episode that he figured out who he really loved (and what he really wanted to do with his life). If you took him seriously (and ignored the hints that he was in denial), you could say that he was still in love with Kiri. But in fact, he wanted to still be in love with Kiri just as he was trying to convince himself that he wanted to spend his life as a teacher -- both were actually lies (as shown in the final episode).

Anyway, that's just my own opinion, of course. I really recommend that you read back through the thread to see all the discussion that occurred.

Edit: See also what Aoie_Emesai and Vexx said -- except I decided to repost my opinion anyway, perhaps foolishly...

I've come closer to relentlessflame's interpretation over the months... though I still think the writers and animators came a few dots short of conveying what he describes as well as they might have.

However, the post above me seems to describe what the writer/animators were trying to convey - how well they did it? <shrug>

(he and I spent a fair amount of time hurling sturgeon chunks at each other over it )

I still find it odd that we had that scene of Hiroki daydreaming about Kiri. It really was unnecessary if they wanted to imply that he was forcing himself.

The show itself was a good watch anyway and I loved most of the characters, especially Ellis and Tomoko. But yeah, some stuff was weird.

A very fair point. From the general reaction out there, I'd have to concede that they probably needed to drop a few more hints. The symbolism was a little too obscure for its own good; even though I eat that stuff up, a good show provides cues that cover the full spectrum of viewers. Still though, it gives you a reason to rewatch the show; when you know where it's going, the path they took to get there becomes clearer.
