The final episode brings the various plot threads together and into a surprising and satisfying conclusion. Shouko and Karada come to terms with the implications of their wishes, Tetsu learns the truth about what has happened to her little friend (and then learns to believe it), Hiro confronts his emotional weakness and begins to take responsibility for what it’s caused. And Kotomi ... well, she’s there, all around the edges, until the last scene when she plays one final plot-resolving trick and boards the train for home.
