It...seems to have gotten a bit better? It's not just purely doom and gloom anymore, it's turned into a dark drama. It's still very grim, but there are now plot tendrils that hint at bigger secrets that will slowly be revealed. So now it feels like there's a reason to read on. Still, this would still be down at 2.5 if the art wasn't so good. I am seeing a pattern with characters giving these huge confessions to Reiji, and then something terrible happening. Not sure how I feel about it.

SPOILERS BELOW!!

Seeing the track record for the first two volumes, I was terrified that the female best friend Chako, would end up sleeping with the author, Esemori. I breathed such a heavy sigh of relief when she rebutted his advances and left. The teacher is still unhinged, but setting asides her atrocious behavior of sexually using Reiji, at least she has a goal of saving enough money to get him out of their town forever and cutting him off once he's gone. At least she's one of the very few who wants Reiji to live. The reveal that Chako likes Reiji romantically honestly felt like a breath of fresh air. Finally, a hopeful point in this cesspool of misery. Also, now I really want to know what the hell is up with Esemori. I have a feeling that Reiji's mother is much more deeply connected to Esemori than what has been explicitly stated. ( )
