I liked both the first half of this manga and the second half of this manga. They were good in their own way. The problem is that nobody warned us about the sudden transition into an entirely different kind of manga and that left me quite confused

That's a win in my book. If it had gone to expectation, I'd have been quite bored.

I haven't read anything to do with these two idiots for years, finally open up a chapter and find that they're still going strong

them being together for so long is kind of annoying ngl

but now its like one trying to ruin the other persons life and everyone she's close with, even stalking her in the park at night

it's not excitement if they're not upping the ante with every successive chapter, hm?

I like how it's literally shipping wars

this manga is popular because the cupids are literally everyone on this site

Hiro done and gave me butterflies

Well, Mai made my mind blank.

And now we know which one of us is the dom and which the sub.

You can absolutely not know someone at all and still care what happens to them

I feel similarly to you, but am wary of calling my feelings 'empathy' when I don’t even know the person on the receiving end. Then it's hard to say if I truly have their best interests at heart. But maybe the intention matters more than the result, because none of us truly ‘know’ another, no matter how close they are or how well we think we know them…in which case you’d be right.

not going to tell my life story but I know that the quality care I was lucky enough to receive probably saved my life.

I'm happy to hear you had such good care and that you want others to have the same.

I think the real problem comes into play when the process to provide quality long term mental health is faulty (Like most under-funded overwhelmed medical processes).

Another problem and probably the most glaring one is simply greed, bean counters realizing your life ended at a young age is a massive sum of government money saved. Money saved is money earned.

And of course organ harvesting, though I don't think there's a sound moral argument against not harvesting organs so that someone else can live a full life.

Sadly the fact is we don't live in a world where the 99% have access to any form of legitimate long term mental healthcare, so I feel like implementing that idea in the state our world is in is a slippery slope to something much darker.

There are many things in your comment to address.

  1. Mental health may not help that much in itself. It is the hope that it helps, that helps.

  2. Every system is underfunded and overwhelmed. Let's take that as the baseline.

  3. Or, if everything is underfunded and overwhelmed, we can argue that nothing is underfunded and overwhelmed. There must be some other issue at play here.

  4. In our vast interconnected society, we are dealing with hundreds of people a day who we do not know, do not care about and will never see again. It seems that in this type of society, preserving life needs a legal process - and killing people needs a legal process too. It's all very bizarre and interesting to me.

  5. Of course, legal systems are a means of control so that the net harms inflicted upon us by other humans' self-interest can seem more predictable to us.

  6. Self-interest seems less culpable if you don't know the people you're hurting. Experiments show that our social circle is roughly capped to 150 people. Beyond that, we cannot care.

  7. So why would it be a slippery slope, if the world was dark in the first place?

Kazura decided to die on impulse in response to being thrown away, but her impulse will almost certainly disappear the moment someone shows they care about her. Yoshibe, on the other hand, appears to be more like myself. I'm looking forward to seeing more about her.

This was a very interesting comment. Thank you for your perspective.

I work in mental health for part of my job. One of the major things we assess is the patient's risk of harm to self and others. That determines whether we let them out of hospital or not. Basically, if they want to die we do everything we can to restrain them from doing so - taking instruments away from their rooms, keeping them in a locked ward, etc.

It's a strange sort of absurdism where I look upon the patients and think if I were in their position, I really wouldn't want people interfering in my own attempt to die. But I still do it (contribute to the life-saving attempts) anyway.

Suicide is not like other medical conditions. In the vast majority of patients, the will to live is strong. Yet I've seen how suicide attempts, if saved, can leave the patient even worse off than if they were dead - spinal cord injuries, going back home to a shitty situation like you described, and so forth. But it's just logistically simpler to save people from suicide when you're the medical personnel on the scene. You assume everyone, deep down, has a survival instinct and go from there. Absolves you from having to ask the hard questions. More importantly, it absolves you from litigation. And it comforts the feelings of the overwhelming majority to know that yes, medical personnel will do everything they can to stop your loved one dying even if they don't want to be stopped.

I don't know deep down whether I always agree with the whole 'saving people from suicide' song and dance. But life is a circus and you just have to go along with it sometimes. Besides, as medical personnel staying alive ourselves, aren't we tacitly supporting the camp of 'life' - whether or not our thoughts secretly desire to be on the other side? There's no-one left alive from 'the other side' to root for you, anyway!

That said, there are attempts in some countries to make euthanasia legal for severe depression. Note here that the emphasis is on legal - firstly making sure it's not on the spur of the moment - but the conclusion (which some may find callous) is that it really doesn't matter if one person decides to end their life, so long as the process is controlled and we have the documentation that it's not the medical system's fault. It's all about legal responsibility. Maybe a bit of humanity thrown in the mix too, but 'humanity' is a loaded and ill-defined term.

Seems like a nice, cozy read. There's a sense of comfort in getting to know someone who also casually looks for places to die.

Well, if no-one likes the direction this manga has gone in, it's my headcanon that both MCs are dead after falling off the roof on Ch1 pg 16 and everything after that is some weird sort of purgatory.

Honestly, I see their marriage lasting a lot longer than a lot of so-called 'passion-fuelled' marriages out there. At least they know and respect each other's bottom lines.

I love how 'my nails remain unchanged' is Maria-sensei's way of working out whether drunk fuckery happened last night

That... is not what happened, though? Quite the opposite, she was worried that she may have hurt her during the "drunk fuckery" because she had not cut her nails.

Oh whoops. Different interpretations, then. I assumed Maria thought 'unchipped fingernails' = 'did not finger a woman last night'

this is some of the most vanilla shit I've ever read

hear me out, I know they did some weird things but the romantic ideals underpinning it are so fucking vanilla I can't even think of any other yuri manga on par with it off the top of my head. especially the murder-suicide. we're going back to ancient mythology with this one
