That's a little tricky. For instance, in depression treatment the most dangerous time isn't when somebody is deep in depression but rather when treatment starts and the patient is feeling a little better. The patient thinks "wait, I'm still feeling lousy, if this is 'better' I'm outta here."Oddball wrote:Hanako isn't going to kill herself., If she was going to, she would have done it before she even met Lilly and Hisao. Before them, she didn't think "friend" was something that really existed and they repeatedly make references to her being better than she used to be.Hanako's neutral, and not her bad ending, because I think Hanako's just stubborn enough to stay alive just to spite Hisao and maybe Lilly in her bad ending, but in her neutral ending, she knows she can never have what she wants, and she may just one day, without warning, kill herself.
Likewise in the neutral ending, let's say Hisao stays at just OK friends after Lilly leaves, and then Hanako and Hisao go their separate ways after graduation. I can see Hanako then being in a situation of "Well, I had friends, and where are they now? Exit stage left."
Then again, in the neutral ending I could see Lilly's move to Scotland and pushing Hisao and Hanako closer together so they could work something out.
