Satou and Shio prepare to leave their "castle" while in the meantime, Asahi is quickly advancing towards finding them.
This recap provides examples of:
- Bittersweet Ending: Satou sacrifices her life in order for Shio to live, and while Asahi succeeds in getting his sister back, Shio rejects him in favor of Satou and vows to keep her "happy sugar life" with Satou in her heart forever.
- Book-Ends: The series opens with Satou fondly thinking of her future life with Shio, and it concludes with Shio reminiscing about her time with her.
- The Bus Came Back: After his absence during the events of Episode 7, Daichi returns in the finale, being arrested by the police for unknown reasons.
- The Dog Bites Back: Yuuna returns to her abusive husband's household and poisons his drinks. Which leads back to Asahi discovering his father lifeless on the ground.
- Everyone Has Standards: Even Shio herself is creeped out by Taiyou's mannerisms.
- Heroic Sacrifice: In an uncharacteristic act, Satou shields Shio with her body, taking the full blunt of the blows.
- A non-lethal example, but Yuuna kills her husband despite knowing the possible repercussions of it if she was ever caught.
- Ignored Epiphany: Satou momentarily quivers her lip when preparing Shouko's corpse for burning.
- Shoot the Shaggy Dog: After suffering for a duration of the anime in his search for his sister, Asahi is shocked to hear Shio proclaim her wishes of staying with Satou.
- This Is Unforgivable!: Asahi tries to strike Satou after realizing that she killed Shouko.
- Villainous Legacy: Shio exhibits characteristics similar to Satou's days later. She even performs the obligatory Title Drop.
- "Where Are They Now?" Epilogue: The ending credits reveal several aspects such as Sumire having a small breakdown over learning of Satou's death; Satou's Aunt getting charged with arson (though she takes it with stride); Daichi is arrested and his family most likely now know of his infidelity; Mitsuboshi is as broken as ever. And the biggest twist of the episode is that Shio herself had survived the jump from the building, the downside being that she now has several traits she inherited from Satou.
