Ohhh, shit's startin' to get good.

 

I'm hoping he will drop the drama bomb that his Senpai was also his lover...

 

That'd be focken amazin' boy

 

Seriously though, this arc is promising character development enough to fill a cargo truck. And I love that.

Has anyone seen the raws? Saw a comment that what Yoake says is that "he will take her for myself", not the rather tame/non-committal "involve in something serious" line. Can anyone verify?

Well, Ryo says

そのまま流れで僕が日代さんをいただいてしまうことになったとしても

Romanized version

Sonomama nagare de boku ga Hishiro-san o itadaite shimau koto ni natta to shite mo
I'm only starting to learn Japanese but we all know what itadakimasu means ;-)

She's really not crying, the katakana used for effects were ジワ ジワ the effects used to imply someone's crying are シク シク meaning sobbing.

The katakana ジワ ジワ implies "sniffling" or being on the verge of crying, whereas シク シク means sobbing.  And no, it's NOT about her hand!  (Kaizaki, you BAKA!)

So, from what I could gather, the "half-truth" Yoake told about to Kaizaki was that the Relife corporation does not erase the memories of the people surrounding their subjects (since that'll probably be way too difficult), but rather implant a false memory depicting the subject's death in their minds or something in the style. Is that right?

Why do people always say this guys they can's erase their memories i don't see any clue why they can't besides "i don't want them to erase their memories" the half truth he said is that one he is alone in the relife program and also about an that's it

the only ending this will lead

Spoiler
the end enough with this they can't erase memories cause it's important to the plot and won't be some stupid deus ex bs.

Which half truth might you be referring to? Was it the one when An was introduced in Arata's room? (that's the only one I remember that was explicitly mentioned). If so, wasn't the lie about
Spoiler

I love the Yakuza taunt, Yoake, but seriously, you aren't a threatening figure anymore.

"Is that a threat?"

 

Ohhh Kaizaki, I love you like a 99 cent 24 oz. cold lemonade stand in the middle of a Texas heatwave, but if Ryo was your enemy, all he would need to do is sit back and let you continue destroying your own progress.

 

Please, please bring me some good news next chapter...

Even if this was true it wouldn't work cause the people could still potentially meet the grown-up versions of the people who supposedly died and that would result in the reveal of the Relife program.

This is what being triggered means.

Well she is sniffling. Likely in response to her hurting hand though, rather than anything emotional.

She's not crying

She just likes smelling her hand sometimes

Lies, Yoake was actually hiding behind a shelf for hours, waiting for Kaizaki to enter

"Don't run away. Answer me, Kaizaki."

It looks like Kariu's starting to get a sense of things. To be honest, I want to see her confront Kaizaki about his avoidance problems and get into a consulting session similar to what he did for her way back when. Kariu's bluntness plus her position as a other party for Kaizaki (is a friend but doesn't hang out with him all the time like Ohga, isn't Hishiro, has had experience talking about serious issues with Kaizaki) indicates her as a good person to shout "pull yourself together!"

 

Basically I want Kaizaki's other friends to start stepping in and forcibly reducing the distance. Maybe they can provide the answers he can't get from his senpai anymore.

Uh, this has nothing to do with "past trauma". Some kind of memory erasing that'd make a year of experiences and relationships moot would obviously cause someone to be nihilistic. At this point it's probably a lie. The company doesn't seem like a criminal enterprise or the sort of inhuman shadow branch of a government that would actually do such an immoral thing.

Actually it has a lot to do with past trauma. The guy shows clear signs of PTSD, especially w/ his unconscious neck scratching, with was related to the past trauma. His senpai hanged herself, and hanging leaves neck bruises. In the earlier bit of the story, he would scratch his neck whenever he's in an anxiety driven experience (in the beginning it was neck tie wearing coz it hit close to hanging). Trauma ain't easily removed, its ingrained into someone and even if he's fighting it back, the clear scratch marks on his neck without the hint of medical treatment show that he doesn't recognize it.

This chapter just hits me in the feels. At first it doesn't seem like it will be a heavy chapter, But when Kaizaki starts scratching his neck, and Yoake's report came out.... dude...

As for the whole memory thing coming up again... I really do hope the whole memory thing ends up being a red herring of some sort. It's so...fantastical. I mean, so is shrinking people to an earlier age (on the outside) -- but I'd like to think it wont happen in the end, for whatever reason...

 

That has been a very problematic issue since the beginning, far more than the "fake teenager" pills. We are talking about:

 

-Selectively erasing the memories of a certain individual. Ok, give me some techno-babble and I might buy it.

-Doing it to every person who had contact with the subject in a high school. That talks of an almost conspiracy-level power.

-Among those people are tens of minors. Seriously, I don't expect that their parents signed any permission for that.

 

At this point, I think it's more likely that the company lied so the test subjects and their handlers would behave. Otherwise, the situation starts sounding disturbingly criminal.

​Looking forward to how they'll tackle Arata's PTSD and his guilt over being the indirect cause of Saiki's suicide.

Kinda amazing it took him 140 chapters to pass that makeup test... I'd like to think if I was thrown back into school now (I'm 30 so it's...been a while) -- I'd be able to get a refresher on it and pass. Though admittedly my weak point was never learning or relearning material, it was staying interested in it enough to keep it up.

Keep in mind it's not the same make-up test from the beginning. He passed that, but in doing so failed to study for the next exams and failed them, starting a vicious cycle of finishing make-up exams but being unable to study for the next ones. 

Ryou got most of it right but not entirely since Arata is mostly depressed because hes in love with Hishiro. Only if Ryou knows about it though, He might drop Arata enough hints for him to suspect that Hishiro might be a subject too but not enough to make him sure that she was.
