Chapter 16, about 18 hours behind schedule, apologies!

We started on a two week per chapter schedule, but decided to speed up towards the end of the 前編, so we will go ahead with a one chapter one week schedule for the next 12 chapters as well.

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.
The friendship between Aomame and the police officer Ayumi, and she gets another shokc as she becomes aware of another big difference between her old world, and the parallel dimension: there seem to be two moons in the night sky!
Let’s start off with a rough translation of the title:
Chapter 15: Aomame: Will we be happy or unhappy? (Here’s a test to see if any of you read my attempts at translating the title, though I guess the extra long blurry text will tip of some of you : I’m not sure what this なろうが grammar means exactly, does anybody know?
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
