Warnings (read please!)
This story contains themes of an adult and/or sensitive nature, including cults, sex, murder, and sexual abuse of children, both mentioned, and graphic (though not until Book 2, in the latter case).
Our character's journey so far.
Tengo has had an interesting conversation with the teacher of Fukaeri, the girl whose book he’s been editing. Apparently he never had a free Sunday, because he would be pulled along by his father, who was an NHK subscription fee collector.
Let’s start off with a rough translation of the title:
Chapter 14: Tengo: Events that almost all readers have never seen before.
Now, poll time:
- I’m reading along
- I’m still reading book, but I haven’t reached this part yet
- I’ve finished this part
- I’m no longer reading the book
