Well…I can’t say that I really wanted to see Johnny walker and his cat soul flutes again :see_no_evil: more gross stuff with eyes and tongues being pulled out! Interested to see what if any impact this has on the ‘more real’ characters like Hoshino and Kafka. Can カラスと呼ばれる少年 only see Johnny walker (who according to his own account, is dead) because he is also a metaphorical type thing???

I’m still to read chapter 47, intrigued to see what happens next!
