I finally found a spoiler online explaining what's coming in Musaigen no Phantom World, and it's about what I expected. Or at least what it described was how the first light novel ended and how the story proceeded in the second light novel.
If that's what's going to happen at the end of the anime (and I believe it will be), it's going to be a great big FUCK YOU from Kyoani to the audience, even worse than Endless Eight. It'll put the ending of Mahoromatic to shame in terms of pissing off the audience. It's going to rival the ending of the Venus Versus Virus anime. (Which didn't have the same ending as the manga.) I expect to see fan art of Mai abusing a KyoAni logo (if there is such a thing).
If you really want to see it, it's here: SPOILER
UPDATE: If that is really where the novels went, then the real mystery is, why would anyone want to make an anime out of that novel series?
UPDATE: So ep 12 is out, and it isn't the end of the series. But, it looks like KyoAni decided to do something else entirely. I think we're going to get a happy ending after all, but it'll be next week.
Maybe. A "FUCK YOU" ending is still possible.
UPDATE: I should make clear that I didn't watch this episode. I just dipped into it a few places for a few seconds, and watched about the last 30 seconds. I'm not going to watch it until the next (and last?) episode comes out.

There's a different answer that occurred to me:
Well, we probably find out today. (Unless this is a 13 ep series, or 2 cour.)

This series is another of the KyoAni owned ones, and all of those, so far, have gone very differently from the base LN. So, while I knew about some of the 2nd LN and beyond, I highly doubt they'd go that way. Their LN division exists to give them wholly owned properties to exploit, but not fans of the LN to appease. Fairly sizable difference in approach.
