Even if it is a choice that they would regret later on.

Right after the Valentine’s Day event, Hachiman and the others resolved to take a step forward on that one snowy day at the aquarium.

A certain big request comes to the Service Club.

For them, overcoming that request with a completely different approach than what they have been doing up until now was natural.

If that is really the thing they are looking for—.

Even if it is a choice that they would regret later on.

Maybe it’s true that as time goes by, they themselves would become adults one day—that people will keep growing through the cycle of meetings and partings. But, the thing in front of their own eyes right now is only the “present”—.

Yukino, Yui, Hachiman. Holding each of their feelings inside their heart, they come up with their own “answers”.

Also, Fushimi made it clear from early on that the characters aren’t blood related, which the series compromises with its overt inclination on the romantic relationship between the siblings.
