It's not just that though; it's like this sequel completely forgot about the first part mentioning that they were apparently dating. But here we hear original B-ko consistently telling her clone and herself that A-ko is her friend for the majority of this chapter. Add to that the odd reaction to seeing her clone kissing Original A-ko and saying "But...friends doing something like that..." among other things at least. Were they even really dating?
Now I understood.
Clone A-ko doesn't feel the same ._. She was trying to go out with B-ko but she still view B-ko in a friend way.
B-ko lost her purpose to live and that's why clones were killing themselves. But somewhere alongside she find a new answer: to kill this love inside of her, so a clone who is just a friend of A-ko was born.
Methaphorically or not, they are just friends now, as I see it
My interpretation is that the "Kodoku Syndrome" is a metaphor for the postmodern understanding of personal identity, which means that the distinction between "originals" and "clones" is wholly artificial. Each of them represents a different facet or mindset of an entity we call "person", and none of them is any more deserving of being the dominant one in public (that is, snuffing out all others) than the rest.
Now that's quite a thought! About methaphorical meaning and all, thanks :)
Who on Earth would have say "sleep your way up I'm okay with this" for the sake of whatever?!
Dat foot missed your face, pal!
Your girlfriend is so damn marvelous, cherish her with every single bit of your heart damn you!
Move your passive ass and please show her how much you love her =/
