Haruka. The fact that she was going to be spared originally and (I presume) learn to live on despite the pain of losing Fuyuhi would have been fantastic character development from her since she basically is willing to die if a friend suggests a group suicide which isn't healthy at all. There's being kind and going along with what friends want to do with you and then there's just having no care about your own well-being at all (and not in a self sacrificing sort of way which would be fine). It also might have had the a positive influence on Yuuri to see someone who has lost pretty much their whole purpose for living (in their eyes) not give up on life and work to create a good future for herself, it could have helped increase Yuuri's chances of deciding to keep on living?
Like say instead of it being determined by whether you use Mitori above or under the water you have several people who you can either save or have die. Each character that dies increases the chance of the bad ending because of Yuuri seeing them die alone and how they suffered greatly in trying to find the ones they went looking for, but conversely if you save a character it has the opposite effect of showing Yuuri the good sides of living and how staying alive can help make all the difference for someone else (like how Hisoka does for Yuuri). This way the more people you save and the more happy endings you help achieve for a character and the person they went looking for will make the good ending where Yuuri keeps on living more likely to happen?
It just seems like doing this would make it better than having it set up so that her actions are dependent with whether she's been tainted by the black water at the moment. Plus it would have had less of people wanting to die for little to no reason and more people realizing that life is worth living throughout both the good and the bad and that has to amount for something.
Oh and if you save Kazuya you could get some friendship interactions between him and Ren which the game was sorely lacking in. Ren not reacting at all to finding out his best friend died and is suffering what one would assume at the moment is an eternal torment of pain, agony, and sadness is such a huge missed opportunity in my opinion.
Also, I haven't played all of Ayane's mode yet but from what I have read a general plot summery of her mode and I agree Tsumugi's character deserved to be in the main storyline instead of regulated to a cross over mode. Especially since she actually DOES decide to keep on living instead of killing herself...
