That's more like a bad ending to Lilly's story. Hisao would have tried, and failed, to get Lilly back and keep her from leaving. Her neutral ending is just that, neutral. They part ways, not happy about it, but of mutual agreement and with no hard feelings between them.N. Bekkler wrote:Yes, absolutely yes.U.T.

I simply can not understand why the neutral ending ended when it did. The woman Hisao is in love with is leaving forever and he can't muster as much as a "Please, don't go"?
Bullshit, I say. That scene of him making a mad dash to the airport and in the hospital afterwards were the perfect way to end Lilly's arc. Letting it stop as soon as she leaves Yamaku is horribly unsatisfying and makes Hisao look like a spineless twerp. If he's not willing to fight for her, then he probably doesn't deserve her.
But then the Good Ending comes and makes the entire arc feel complete in the best way possible. This is only my second completed route (Emi being my first), and I can't wait to see if this one can be topped.
Chasing after the love of your life only to nearly die and still fail in that one simple goal seems pretty far from neutral. That's just my two cents, though.
Although that would be quite the roller coaster of feels. Perhaps that and an epilogue would make a pretty good fic.
