Our first look into the mind of Hagita. And as I expected, his letter to himself was incredibly light on detail.
Just one thing really: make Kakeru laugh/happy.
Short and sweet chapter.
Oooh, finally we get some more insight into Takako.
I don’t know what to say here really. I feel like this really fit her. Seems like she didn’t only affect the appearance of not caring, but she actually thought that she didn’t, and in the original timeline she learns different when Kakeru dies. A lesson present her (Kakeru survives her) could now get instead from trusting the feelings of her future self.
I don’t really identify with Takako much, I’ve always been on the side of perhaps feeling too much. So I don’t know how authentic this might be or not. But in the context of the story and her character, I believe it. So
After reading these two chapters, (not a spoiler of either of the chapters, but more talking about what might be coming next)which kinda contained what I suspected, I now worry that we really won’t get a look at what the future looks like for the Kakeru survives crew. Not beyond the 23/4, ten years later, 花見 picnic plus sunset scene we’ve already gotten glimpses from. I really do hope we at least get a better idea of how it goes for Suwa…
