I was all set to comment how this chapter too was way too naive and over the top, cartoonish even in how it portrayed the “villain”, but at the end it seems like maybe the naivety was of the characters in jumping at the first conclusion that was presented to them? I’m still hoping for a dark tale of betrayal, but we’ll see. Once again, I have no idea what this book has in store, but I do hope it has something. (and no comment on the casual quickie hacking of a yakuza boss’s phone at short notice, as requested by a respectful white-collar businessman )
Well, my hopes were crushed once more. What was that exactly? What manager lets an employee of his be insulted in this way by a stranger, a competitor no less, in his very office? Seriously, you stand in someone else’s office, and sarcastically recite a humiliating interview that happened 9 years ago word for word (possibly doing the voices too), then ask a person you’ve seen once 9 years ago, in front of her superior, whether she’s sleeping around? How? What? Then suddenly, after insulting her in this way, you bow and beg for forgiveness because that way of interviewing was wrong? Yet you did it again a minute ago? And in the end everyone apologizes to each other and things are back to normal and everyone’s happy? What is this? Is the book some kind of isekai light novel after all?
It felt like the tempo increased somewhat? So while I see what you mean with things drifting a bit much into the comical/unrealistic (is it? I’ve never worked corporate jobs in Japan), I enjoyed these two chapters more than the first 7.
Also, way to sprint ahead @NicoleIsEnough ! That’s really motivating to read just one more chapter…
Turns out it was her who harrassed somebody else - but Kouta doesn’t look like he believes this story. So although the boss warned him not to investigate further, of course he doesn’t care and finds out that it was a person who is the son of a powerful figure in the company empire. In order to learn more, he even attends the year-end-party, but his opponent didn’t show up yet …
Luckily the chapters are still short enough that it’s quite easy to read one more, and then one more in bed Also, I just decided on my reading goal for 2023 which is 10,000 pages and so I need to read my share every day
This took me ages to finish, I kept losing concentration. This book better do something to regain my interest soon. So his sister resents him for all kinds of stuff, only some of which is logical, but that’s 18 year olds for you. Especially the “I want to succeed on my own, not follow anyone” when you go and do the exact thing your brother did, and the “You broke up with a person I cared about”, as if she expected him to stay in a relationship just for her sake… Not unrealistic though. And 光汰 hasn’t been the ideal brother either. Her still not being able to get over 恵 after so many years is somewhat worrying though. Oh well. Now 光汰 has to finally face his past, and hopefully there will be some mystery surrounding 美津子’s circumstances before I’m bored to death.
Edit: Forgot to add, the most shocking thing in this chapter for me was that they left their beer cans on the swings. Just why?
Finally! This was a much better chapter, I sincerely hope the trend continues. So funny that 八千草 waited all these years to be questioned by 光汰 on 美津子. Hope there are interesting revelations in store. (and we need to know about that mysterious room at some point)
Re chapter 30.
I was equally relieved Let’s see how this unfolds going forward…
Wow, that article is creepy Thanks for sharing.
This has finally gotten interesting. And 光汰 is now firmly in criminal territory, even if it’s supposedly for a good cause. Funny how both ユースケ and 芽々 are so attached to a person from their past that they can’t move on - they both even got into the nightlife business because of that. ユースケ may hate lying, but he definitely has nothing against violence. I have some sympathy for 加賀宮 because of all the pets and how much he evidently cares for them. Hope they don’t come to any harm.
See you in the last thread!
