What If We Never Met – Izumi
Since Izumi’s shadow holds all he has been trying to bury from his past, and graduation is about closing a chapter, he finally faces his past self. In the meeting of who he is vs. who he was, there is a consideration of how fate brought him into Kyoko and her friends’ life and what his world would have been like without them. And with facing his past and embracing his future, it seems Izumi may have not only healed from what has happened but forgiven himself for prolonging the life he currently loves and enjoys.
With graduation coming upon everyone, it freaks out some. Remi worries Sakura will be done with her, Yanagi wants one last hoorah, Yuki is afraid of the changes coming about, and nearly everyone has something they are going through. But with promises to hang out, take trips, and more, those more fearful of losing their best friend or peer find themselves placated.
Us Together – Izumi, Kyoko
While everyone is worried about remaining connected and making plans, this doesn’t include Kyoko and Izumi. He is pretty much part of the family now, and while we still don’t get to see Izumi’s family interact with Kyoko, we can assume it goes both ways.

On The Fence
A Meek Ending
There is no denying that Horimiya ended on a happy note, but considering how all over the place the show was up until now, to develop nearly its entire cast, the ending was meek. We didn’t get Yuki and Toru confessing, Sakura finding love, nothing to leave this series on an exclamation point. Even with the star couple, we didn’t get to finally see them kiss.
Making HoriMiya ultimately be a very cute show that somehow went downhill due to diluted stories than outright being bad.
