Episode 12 (Finale)
- So that's what happened. On 8/1, the heroine got caught in an explosion and she died on 8/25.
- It was Ukyo's wish to Neil to bring the heroine back to life, something that is too tough and costly to grant.
- The normal Ukyo is back, and the heroine runs up to the clock tower, with Neil as Ukyo in pursuit.
- Either she dies or Ukyo dies. And Ukyo decides he dies by stabbing himself.
- The clock strikes midnight, and the heroine is transported someplace where Neil resides.
- And the whole truth about Orion is revealed. Orion is a vessel for Neil and he speaks through Orion.
- The heroine getting killed was no coincidence: she is a foreign substance in those worlds.
- It's time to say farewell to Orion, and return to her original world.
- And that would would be... Well, there are five doors to choose from.
That was a pretty nice way to wrap up this show that had been confusing and frustrating for the most part. The truth behind everything, that all this was Ukyo's wish to keep the heroine living and that Neil was pulling the strings behind it, was really something. It was a pretty enjoyable way to end this show considering everything leading up to this point. And then there is the ending. It seems like she may not be back in her correct world considering that she needs to pick a route, much like what a dating sim has a player do. But in the end, her memories are back, and I supposed that she will remember who she is in love with.
Overall, this show is one very large confusing mystery that will test your patience, and I nearly lost mine early on given the fact that there were so many questions at the beginning. Given how bad O game anime adaptations are, this one is pretty good given its original source. The character designs are great, which is why I was highly interested in this show in the first place. But the characters themselves have problems. The heroine is someone I will never understand. Yes, amnesia deprived her of her memories and it's a way to make her cute. But it seems like her common sense went with it, which was so frustrating to see throughout the show. But that is understandable once the ending rolls around. The boys themselves have issues as well, with Ikki being the worst of the bunch. In the end, it's a passable show given that this show builds up into something nice with Ukyo's split personality and his wish that Neil was trying to grant, but one that it's best to (pardon the pun) have amnesia about.

It's time to graduate from here. But there's still some business left.
The only thing better than anime is sports. Get hit hard and you got JACKED UP! Or else it's a C'mon Man!
