I just discovered the anime is on Prime Video, and I binge watched the whole thing. Still can't get over how every character is pretty much a horrible dumpster fire of a person, aside from Shio (till the end anyway, when it's then clear she's developed into another Satou) and maaaaybe Shouko since all she did was lie to her parents about what she was really doing after school and then die a horrible pointless death.....

There's apparently a sequel manga (Or maybe its an extra? I don't know tbh) of sorts that takes place after the events of HSL, like teenage Shio. I've only seen a few panels without context and all in japanese. So hopefully it gets translated as well because i need to know if my children are finally happy and sane or if Shio just followed after Satou in becoming an abductor in the name of Love.

There are some more extras and shorts. Don't expect an actual sequel. They're mostly set during the events of the story or are silly hypotheticals. We're working on them

first that are oneshots extra that the author made after manga ending so according to Japanese twitter not canon
and Shio does not become Satou she keeps the love and warmth of her in heart. basically she will never fall in love or make human connections.

I'm sorry, if you'd prefer my more in-depth thoughts on and interpretations of the ending of the MANGA, feel free to look up those posts in this thread, because I surely can't be arsed to do so for someone who clearly finds their joy in pushing buttons and declaring that others have "shit taste".

I just found out that Kagisora Tomiyaki is a guy. For some reason that makes the manga seem much more creepy, to me.

That definitely makes it creepier, especially with all the sexual violence that happens.

Though I don't think it was unexpected.

how so? don't you guys know women can make worst shit like
Hachi Itou , Ryouta Yuzuki

And even so, why the fact it's a man make it creepier ? Mens are not monster you know.

typical male response cope you need a high IQ read the manga messages.

I certainly hope you weren't directing that at me, lol

I think that 's uncertain. Japanese manga sources say the mangaka's gender is unknown. The mangaka seems to be one of those who do not want their identities revealed.

Mangaupdate states that the mangaka is male. While mostly accurate, I have found a few errors from them. In addition, the Japanese sources are more of an insider, so I trust them more than Mangaupdate.

I was finding this ending to be sweeter than the anime one until the last page. Holy shit, I knew Shio would become like Sato! And the cycle of abuse keeps going on. Great story, I enjoyed it a lot. I love the art style, it's very heartwarming.

Uhh, I love Sato so much, even though she is a het bitch, and it would be absolutely ultimate ending if they died together in ch47 or Shio killed herself in last chapter. Well, at least Shio did not accept her sick brother and seems to aim for her own life

You did not understand the ending? Shio becomes the opposite of Sato.

Satou is not het bitch she had sex with males because that's what the aunt said love is and in Satou's own words she did not feel anything for the guys and sex.

People seem to have an odd blind-spot with regards to Shouko's shitty behavior.

That tends to happen with murder victims.

Also, the Satou is the main character of the story. The entire build-up to her murder of Shouko is a key turning point in the story. Her previous killings were at least somewhat justifiable—the painter was throttling Shio when she clocked him, and those guys in the park (if she actually killed them rather than simply mutilating them) were violent rapists. But then she killed her only friend in cold blood simply to make sure her secret stayed safe.

This is the only thing that Satou ever regrets, and it seems to torment her and catalyze some major changes in behavior. It's the point of the story where we know that Satou is doomed. Arguably, it's her unease with what she's done that ends up killing her (look at the scene where she leaves her ring behind). She has done the unforgivable and, even if she survives, she'll never escape. So Shouko's behavior is really beside the point of the story.

I've always felt like this series was the Yin to Yuzumori-san's Yang- one of them does the onee-loli relationship as a super sweet highschool comedy while still engaging with the darker implications of its own premise in a relative mature way, and the other takes the everyone is a heartless arsehole route, but makes our leading pair just likeable and vulnerable enough to make you kindasorta root for them.
