It would have been really easy to flub this ending with so many sad and horrible things that have happened. Easy to veer one way or the other (too sad, too happy). It was happy but a happiness with a levity. I'm not sure I can get behind Shigure and Akito, but you know, I feel like there's a great recognition that these people just need to let each other go and leave bad things in the past. Punishing Akito would just start another terrible cycle. How much is too much retribution? Some of the couples are whack, but you know. Great ending to a great series.
