That was quick and painless (in most part). Spoilers ahead maybe?
So everything went just like that. The two layered strategy was pretty good although it literally can only be done by Hachiman. I really didn’t expect that.
I wonder if something happened in the past with Haruno and Hiratsuka (related or otherwise) and ended up with them regretting and thus trying to push our main characters to the ending they wished they would’ve done.
The closing though Yukino is still in “given up” state. At current rate, it looks like Yui will end up being the one who push them to the correct route as she can’t stand where they’re currently heading to.
RIP Yui (again)? At least it means she will still have pretty big role till the end.
