I like her epilogue version a lot, but after all, you identified yourself with Keitaro (even though you were ten fucking years younger) and wanted him to get the sweethearted girl.
Same would be with Ami from Sailormoon. She was the "good girl" which western people understood better. I think she eventually got a boyfriend but he turned out to be one of those monsters she had to fight. Even in his monster form he tried not to harm her so after returning to his human form he left her but vowed himself and her he'd return once he got a grip on himself.
