Allow me to take you back in time to the classic slice-of-life anime 'Azumanga Daioh', the tale based around the daily life of a group of high school girls and the colourful antics they find themselves in.
At the end of each episode you'll all notice we are met with an ending sequence that featured the girls in an almost heavenly surrounding, the lighting is incredibly bright and a song known as 'Raspberry HEAVEN' plays in the background, and all the girls are smiling, a vibe of complete happiness and contentment is felt.
The dark truth here is that after the last episode drew to an end, you'll all remember the girls discussed travelling by train, then by bus to the theme park that they were going to go to, to celebrate the end of their school days together. That very bus ride would prove to be their last time together on earth.
Whilst on route to the theme park the bus was cut off my a lorry, the bus swerved to avoid a collision and flew off the road into a concrete pillar, the the majority of the girls were killed almost instantly, others died minutes later (hence why at the start of the end sequence they are dotted around separately, as opposed to later in the sequence when they're all together)
Yes. The sequence is essentially all of the girls together once again, but in death.. The sequence features the girls flying in the bright sky and walking in mysteriously glowing patches of flowers in a land devoid of life except for them.. The sequence ends with them flying together happily in the sky. Their lives were all going in separate directions what with them ending school, but little did they know, they would be able to carry on their existence together, but only this time that existence together would be an eternal co-existence in death. Together forever.
Despite this being a tragic ending of life for such young characters, there's an almost bittersweet happiness that they'll continue their adventures together forever in the afterlife..
To explain why Korin was also in the end sequence, that is simple, after hearing about Sakaki's death in the bus accident, Kaori committed suicide and thus joined the girls in the afterlife.. The reason Chiyo's dog was also in the end sequence was simply because a copy of him was created by a higher power to help the young Chiyo cope with the transition to the afterlife.
