Spoiler: So about the ending: Taken all together, I'm satisfied with thinking that everyone died in the end. It was a story about mistrust, mistakes, miscommunication, and missed opportunities. It's only fitting that the information that could have saved everyone came too late to do so. Selfishness, stubbornness, and secrecy tore them apart and then prevented them from reconciling, and ultimately sunk them. It's a tragic example about how not talking out stuff with your friends can ruin so much. Overall, I think it was the most coherent of the Keyaki dramas. I don't know if I liked it more than Tokuyama Daigoro, but that's probably due to how awesome the style of that show was. I can't wait to see what they bring out next.
