...Can anyone tell me what actuallly happened in Violight?

This completely details the events, so don't read it if you don't want an in depth explanation before reading it.


I really like this story. Quite well done. There's quite a bit of neat imagery.

I cried about a washer...

...Can anyone tell me what actuallly happened in Violight?

Yo, Insect songs was so...sad...


A good chapter. I like the theme of "alien lifeform improves someones life" that's employed here. The mangaka knows how to create this melancholic feel to the whole thing.

That's freaking beautiful, thank you for this! 

Elemhunter, thanks for those links! Those made things a little clear. I still don't know what the shit actually happened in Violight even with a few re-reads, so if anyone could explain, I'd appreciate it greatly.


Speaking of which, Star Lover has the type of sci-fi that is absolutely my kinda thing but hoo boy that's an overload to intake... I mean I love (fictional) clone ethics but nope

(Still, great read. This whole collection is pretty good. But I hope the remaining stories don't evade me in comprehension like Violight)

As weird and dreamlike as I would expect from the author of Houseki no Kuni.



Further reading/spoonfeeding that may or may not make it easier to understand, and may or may not be on the mark.


Needs a translator.
