[SPOILERS]

I felt like this was a fitting finale.

I appreciate that they show us so many different possibilities-- Saiki can tell everyone, he can wait a while, he can suppress his powers, he can get them back (Reawakened.) Kind of a choose-your-own-adventure.

But whatever happens, he's still going to have his friends.
I've grown to really love all these characters, because despite how silly they are, they have depth, and they're mostly good people.
It was really touching to see Nendou's unconditional acceptance of Saiki, to see Kaidou caring so much that Saiki is keeping secrets, to see Yumehara finally bolster up the courage to ask Kaidou out, to see that Saiko does care about everyone in the group.
The psy kickers even took a train out in the middle of the night to help with a mystery quest, and they literally saved the world with the power of friendship! Like! I love that shit!

I'm so happy that I got to watch 56 mostly-amazing episodes of this show. The characters may finally get to move on with their lives, but I'll keep thinking of them.
