It's a flashback to the beginning of the series. It's a reference to the fact that Kuro's ordeal was an ever-repeating cycle of looking for Kuromitsu.

In short, he'll never do her? Must be pretty bad for him.

Well, in a way she is only in love with his head.

As many previous commentators already said and so do I, there's much room for interpretation. So everyone has his own view of how the story concluded/ended.
I don't think there's a 100% right or wrong. Or let's email the production team.

Well, they actually do have sex--it's not shown too explicitly in the anime, but the first episode is quite obvious about it anyways (the manga is much more explicit).

Quote:
Take Rai for example. She dies at the end of one of these cycles. Then she's shown again in either a flashback or maybe as a nod to the next cycle in a similar yet different situation. On top of that she seems to be talking to another dead person in the same situation. Hell even their conversation was similar to the one we were originally shown.
Why would that make it false? It just points out the repetitive cycle (plus, due to the appearance of the whole thing, you would guess that it was a much earlier epoch than the one we've been shown the most). I admit that Rai appearing again surprised me a bit, but still, it could either be a red herring or a storytelling license in order to put a point through (though it might have thrown off a lot of people, apparently).

Oh boy, watching this series was like going through the Dark Tower series (Stephen King) all over again. The storytelling technique and overall concept employed in both series are pretty much identical. Replace the Dark Tower with Kuromitsu, Roland with Kuro, and you have Kurozuka in a nutshell. Now, I'm not saying there's copy-pasta suspicion in either case, but the similarities between the two series do warrant a comparison.

I got to watch the ending. I sat back and relaxed, then appreciated the ending for what it was to me, a tragedy for the main lead.

Spoiler:


Perhaps the negativity of the public regarding the ending made me appreciate it even more.

Now that this series is over... I can openly say I hate Kuromitsu and I hated that everyone seemed to be in love with her... (the ones that admitted to it). -__-;

Since it was the love tangle that Kuro and Kuromitsu had that *seemed* to be the core of the story ... the ending was fairly unsatisfying. However, the scope of the story and the flair of presentation were pretty good rides; as a friend said, "the damn thing is dripping with metaphors, even the walls".

Yep. The nature of their little love tangle is what made me watch the first few episodes. I could've expected a a better conclusion.

So finally decided to watch this series again, or rather the last episode (stopped at 07 or something out of annoyance, but decided I couldn't leave a series incomplete so I had to watch the last episode). At first I was all damn, that Kuromitsu is one crazy woman, but then the ending changed all that...... so it was all a dream or what?
