I knew when the piano version of the first OP started playing that this was the only way for the cast to close the show. It’s the perfect, mellow ending to a show that’s had its ups and downs, though The Great Jahy Will Not Be Defeated! has had many more ups than downs. As you watch the ensemble cast watching the fireworks, there’s this sense that they’re going to be okay, moving forward. Of course, there’s also the fact that the manga’s ongoing: I feel immensely gerateful for that, especially since I’m going to need a Jahy fix in 2022.
