I have a feeling that the opening is just a red herring and the ending will be a happy one. I kinda hope it isn't, as a bittersweet or tragic ending might be more powerful in the provided context. Either way, I've learned that endings are almost always the worst parts of manga; the story has been wonderful so far, so I can't let myself be taken by the ending in whichever direction it goes.
I’ve read a LOT of series over the covid pandemic, but this one just stands out above almost everything I’ve seen. Even though it releases a chapter every two months or so, it still pops into my head every few weeks or so. After chapter 10, I’m kinda scared to keep reading. I was holding out some hope that this might have a happy ending but now I’m bracing myself for the worst.
So after all she is sick. I wonder why Asaka didn't tell Hoshikawa about her illness. I get that it could make her stop writing, but if u asking someone to be honest with you i think u should be the same. Can u imagine what kind of shock it will be for Hoshikawa when she find out Asaka probably dying, this can be the real reason to make her stop writing novel again
