The Line chats in Tsuki ga Kirei’s ED are one of the nicest parts of the show, but no one translates them. Each episode’s chat tells a short love story between random people. Read them while listening to the ED song, Tsuki ga Kirei.
Tsuki ga Kirei is airing in the 2017 Spring season.
This episode brought up all the Line chats from before and matched them to scenes in the couples’ lives together. While the connection is not quite explicit, it is highly likely that the couples were Kotarou and Akane all along, as some have speculated. The episode’s ending does leave things rather open and so we can’t say for sure if these really happen or are simply speculative, but perhaps that ambiguity is fair: the final epiphany is after all no longer about the process of loving but simply about the beauty of love. I’ve translated the lines displayed and linked the respective conversations for each scene below.
