Based on the DVD box art, it doesn't look like we'll be getting a sad ending, but I'm not getting my hopes up yet after what happened in the original series...second anime series in my whole life to actually make me shed a tear (with Kanon 2002 being the first)

Anything is better than the Mitsuki ending of the TV series though.

the subs are complete
anyways, after 6 months of waiting for a ridiculous cliffhanger in June 2008, this was not really what I had in mind. However, it isn't as bad as Kaizu said it was either. The biggest downside to this episode was that there was too much focus on Akane rather than on Haruka's and Takayuki's relationship. That really only got the last 5-10 minutes of the show, which I found outstanding, especially by bringing back everything where it first started. A lot of stuff from the original 2003-04 series also made episode 4 feel rather nostalgic.
Nevertheless, waiting 6 months for this final episode did not quite deliver what I had hoped for, especially with Haruka being my favorite of the two choices (between Haruka and Mitsuki). The original series stands far superior to this one in essentially every aspect except animation, which of course, changed over the years. Had they made this into a full 12-13 episode series, it probably would have allowed a slightly more interesting development. The cliffhangers in episodes 1 and 3 really made the OVA, but it simply did not produce with the following episodes of something as shocking or jaw-dropping as those two scenarios.
Regardless, the OVA wasn't bad and was nice for us Haruka fans, and the last 5 minutes were nice to see everything starting back where it did 3 years ago in the series before Haruka fell into the coma. On a side note, did the tree play any significance this time around? I don't remember if it did in episode 1 since it's been so long.
Anyways I give this series a 7/10. It had potential to be as good as the first series as the best all time drama/romance/slice-of-life series, but it really slipped up too many times for it to cross my 8/10 threshold, which many series seem to lose out for these little mistakes

Although it still sucks that she still had to hide her true feelings for Bakayuki by only saying that she loves him like a "brother"... sure.
It was so much better than the Mitsuki end, so it gets an 8/10 from me.
