She tries smiling again and being uncaring when the woman questions her, then after the pigeon is killed all emotion drains from her face like at the start of the chapter.

She goes from her standard unemotional to a somewhat different type of unemotional which for me elicits the emotion of "yeah... ok."

She's not going to scream her heart out or cry, I doubt she even knows how to do that.

Tokiko is just fully giving up right now isn't she.

It seems that the 'curse' is intensifying. I wonder what is behind it.

Am I the only one who didn't think any of that Natsuki and Tokiko was meant to be yuri? I honestly think they are, were, great friends and Tokiko actually cared for her and stuff. I wonder now tho, if there's no curse but sort of a...death magnet, like, in those cartoons where people walk and have a dark rainy cloud over them? but what set it in motion? can it be stopped? does she care? do I?

Anyone seriously thought this was going to be yuri? In "Satsuki" there are actually some indications from the early chapters. But here it's sheer carnage.

It would be boring if, at the very end, this madness was stopped in some stilted way. Personally, I'm hoping for an ending that makes me laugh.

^ Satsuki is awkward but can still function in society and generally understands other people's feelings so I can believe she'd fall in love or that someone would fall in love with her, Tokiko is an actual sociopath to the point it's a wonder she was able to make one genuine friend so I feel like romance would be too alien to her. Maybe in a hypothetical future where people stopped dying around her and she could've started trying to understand "normal" emotional reactions better.

I can definitely see Natsuki being in love with Tokiko, though Tokiko being a psychopath who lacks empathy means Natsuki's affections were likely not reciprocated, though she was clearly the 'most important person' to Tokiko after her sister. Maybe in another reality they would have started dating, or perhaps Tokiko wouldn't see/understand the point in being lovers and they would simply remain close friends.

Now, this makes sense for me, I can see this happening. Psychopath, yes Tokiko would be one.

The pigeon xD This is too much

See, I'm developing a hunch. I don't think Tokiko is going to be the last one standing at the end of this, for some reason I've got the feeling that the last one who's going to be alive is Ai, and despite Tokiko's "curse" ending with her, we're probably going to see hints that Ai is now "cursed."

We'll see how that turns out though.

My goodness even the pigeons are not safe!

This made me laugh a lot harder than it should have.

Ah, the classic horror/thriller movie ending. I hadn't thought of it before, but now it seems likely.

Yeah it kinda seems the "honest" drama is over now and we're in basically death game morbid comedy territory.

Now that you mention it, that would be a possibility. I'm still betting on a full board clear.

That awkward moment when you have a more genuine shock reaction to a pigeon being run over than your friend's head literally being blown off by a car wheel

I think I have a general idea on how this is going to end.

My bet is that Tokiko is gonna be killed by Ai, cultist dude died trying to stop them, and the young detective is witness to all this. Later on he takes custody of Ai, and then the epilogue shows that Ai is "cursed" like Tokiko too and then the circle begins anew lol.

i thought fire extinguishers very rarely exploded - unless they were defective with like a dent, heat doesn't seem to be reason in this case. did the broken fire extinguisher hit the professor in the head or did it hit the fire alarm which then hit the professor in the head? or maybe i'm just thinking about this to forget that best girl natsuki died terribly insignificantly and now tokiko is alone with no chances of happiness and giving up knowing that death just follows her?

I was hoping that the whole curse thing was just cult BS, the story has taken a disappointing turn.

Hi, I'm curious as to why do you find it depressing, sure people die, but that's expected with such a title right? good day
