This was on IRC from a FML bot:

<Internets> [fml #6842444] Today, I was awakened from a peaceful sleep by my crazy ex-girlfriend, who apparently copied my key before our break up three months ago. She was on top of me, stroking my beard, whispering: “He looks like Jesus.” FML

Bonkers as she may be, the Aunt showed some pretty scary levels of psychology and empathy there. Perhaps that, far more than her 'love,' is what makes her unnerving.

Putting the psycho back in psychological horror. 

Is it me or...

Am I the only one here who didn't recognise the aunt?

One of the most disturbing manga I've read.

Wait, what the hell was that? Why couldn't she meet her gaze and allow what just happened to happen? "My aunt is weird. She's also blood related to me. Will you still be my friend?" "Uhh no I'd love to Satou, but you're related to that thing and thus I can no longer meet your gaze and am perfectly fine letting you walk away without correcting this misunderstanding"

 

I mean clearly she saw some parallels between Satou and her aunt and it clearly connected some dots regarding her loose nature. But she's not her aunt. She has never really acted "crazy" towards her before. And to top things off both of them are pretty loose, so what the hell? I feel like the author may have made a logic misstep there while trying to try to make it more dramatic. I don't think an actual friendship purportedly that close would just collapse like that over something like this. This is more like what would happen when you're a kid and your mom learns your best friend has an uncle in prison for murder then suddenly says you can't hang around that family anymore because they're a bad influence. The kid would be fighting it, not the one with the prejudice. 

I think the point is that Satou never saw Shouko as a friend. Shouko was shocked and confused, and Satou used this as an excuse to end their friendship. As we can see Shouko's thoughts, we can tell that more than anything, she's disoriented, rather than actually disgusted by Satou. Personally, I think Satou did this due to being so used to rejection by her "friends" during her childhood that she couldn't comprehend the possibility of Shouko accepting her - Satou turned away Shouko because she believed Shouko had rejected her.

But it's also possible that Satou simply didn't care what Shouko thought. She took advantage of Shouko to further her scheme and then tossed her out when she had no more use for her. She said just the right words that would make sure Shouko, full of shame and regret, would never bother Satou again.

I prefer the first option, since it implies that Satou is redeemable. If her pushing Shouko away was a defensive reaction to perceived rejection, then it means that under the right circumstances, Satou could trust someone again. Perhaps if Shouko had been braver, and responded assertively instead of looking away, it might've made a difference. But maybe not. Maybe Satou would've just come up with a different way to get rid of her, since she never intended to open her heart in the first place.

That means they were never truly friends. Humans being humans after all.  

Seriously. And the whole "push down a police officer on duty" is basically an assault. That would get her arrested and CPS called on her...

Well he seems to be a return customer :P (He never mentions his name)... Though that doesn't really change things... 

Surely a guardian like that would be reason to call child protection services? Well in the real world anyway.

She literally used her aunt as a means to break off her friendship with Shouko, make the teacher's evidence invalid and lure the pedophile outside of his nest.

Jesus. That's some efficiency right there.

Wow damn, her aunt is even worse than all others characters in this manga.

A slutty girl decides to murder other people because she wants to force you into a relationship? That's truly horrifying.

This manga has so many messed up characters... yet I can't stop reading it @_@ 

kind of weird for the author to say it was intended to be horror, specially when everyone but the aunt seems to deserve pain.

I seriously hope that teacher get killed at some point soon, for example, they're so unlikable.

maybe if she did something to her friend we could start to be "scared" of Satou.

Looks like all the various perverts surrounding Satou's life are coming together into one simultaneous joint climax. Or perhaps not, with those last few pages.

thanks for the work

Well, that explains the teacher's appearance. He's just a fucking pervert as I expected.

It's extremely weird: everyone around Sato are fucking insane and no one can even prove she did anything other than be a manipulating clever girl.

wut.
 

Apparently, the author intended the story as horror and is very surprised how everyone is rooting for her.

 

I'm a bit surprised how...surprised they are. Just by the very nature of making someone the protagonist, you're given a back seat look at their life. Their thoughts and motivations, and even when they're not entirely "there", you can still find ways to sympathize with them, especially when they're basically cute little girls that look like the victims of circumstance. Here we have a girl that has a few screws loose and may have done some terrible things, but we have no idea what kind of life led her to this point. In fact as they continue to flesh out her backstory, I can only imagine her support to go way up.

 

I sympathize with her and even root for her in some respects, but at the same time I think she needs to be separated from Shio for Shio's sake. Of course even Shio seems to have some kind of dark past related to her mother, and may be as broken if not more broken than Satou is, even if she's hardly showing the same level of signs. The silent type are hard to figure out...

RIP best friend, not your luck.
