However we have no indication that anyone else got over their problems, Ikari, whose wife is dead, is still a construction site security guard, and the final scenes are a clear mirror of the opening scene of the show as if to say it will happen all over again. Maniwa, now white haired, replaces the old man from the beginning.]]

Added DiffLines:

** The last episode even has one, with [[spoiler: Maniwa]] replacing the Old Man, and it essentially encourages the viewer to rewatch the show in order to better understand the series.

** Zebra, Fuyubachi and Kamome. It leads to such hilarious things like [[SuicideAsComedy failed suicide attempts]] and chasing after Lil' Slugger and [[RefugeInAudacity asking him to kill them]]. [[spoiler:It turns out that they died early in the episode.]]

** Zebra, Fuyubachi and Kamome. It leads to such hilarious things like [[SuicideAsComedy failed suicide attempts]] and chasing after Lil' Slugger and [[RefugeInAudacity asking him to kill them]]. [[spoiler:It turns out that they died early in the episode.]]]] It's heavily implied that Fuyubachi is terminally ill, and that Zebra's boyfriend broke up with him, hence why they want to die. Why Kamome wanted to kill herself is more ambiguous, but her concerned over being abandoned by the other two might indicate coming from a broken home or being an orphan.

** Hirukawa is introduced first as a man who frequents prostitutes. Then it's revealed he's a dirty cop who's rubbing elbows with Yakuza. [[spoiler: Then it's revealed he's a pedophile who takes pictures of his daughter and may or may not have raped a woman during a break-in. Sort of playing with the trope a bit, Hirukawa is one of the few characters who takes Lil' Slugger's attack as a chance to change himself and attempts to be a better person who re-establishes a connection with his daughter.

* JerkAss: Yuuichi. Even when the person he threatened was defending him, he still had it out for him. This grudge seems to have disappeared by the sixth episode, though.

to:

* JerkAss: According with the theme of the series that you can bring the worst on yourself, many of Little Slugger's victims are terrible people who've created the circumstances through selfishness. In a weird way Lil' Slugger brings about a chance for some of them to change for the better (though if that's what's intended is up for debate).
** Kawazu is a sleazy, perverted reporter who stalks and harasses marks for potential stories. At the beginning of a story he's dealing with a lawsuit after hitting an old man with his car, and views himself as the victim of the circumstance; after all, he's the one who's had to pay so much money after hitting him.
