We now know that everyone found something to do and that all of them have a stable life. It has also been revealed that Tsuruko and Yukiatsu didn’t marry but that they are still together. Anaru and Jintan, on the other hand, aren’t in a relationship, but at the end of the stage reading, Jintan kind of proposes to Anaru.
As an aside, Tsuruko grills Jintan about his relationship with Anaru, to which he casually says he was thinking of asking her to marry him after she wakes up. Anaru freaks out after hearing that, inadvertently revealing that she was actually awake. When Jintan asks if she doesn’t want to marry him, she splutters and awkwardly admits that she does want to do that, but she was expecting them to date first. The others take this as confirmation that Jintan and Anaru are now an item.Anime News Network
