This week’s part is heavy on the feels…

I expected consequences for staying over without permission, but wow, that was brutal. Expectations fulfilled. :cry:

I wasn’t expecting Roots dad to feature. Or that money lady. 家政婦 is too nice…


Yeah. Can we go back to baseball??

After the conversation with 組合長, it really floated from one sullen scene to the next. What do we all make of the description of the baby fawn? Is it foreshadowing for something even worse to happen? It seems quite deliberate.


Reading during lunch break, and just got to a dramatic part. I don’t want to go back to work! But there’s still half a book left, so it’s gotta resolve, right?
