What happens? 
 
Perhaps there was something? 
 
Was it because I've never been much help? 
 
Why? 
 
Even why you came to me to discuss what ailed you? 
 
though I must not forget that either ask you something about it. 
 
"I guess there's no point beating around the bush to follow ..." 
 
always wanted to know more about it. 
 
now that I think about it, I think that nothing has changed since that time. 
 
nao: .felicidades by becoming the tame dog of the teachers. 
 
I'm far from how ishida kun. to me it never crossed my mind. try looking again shouko. 
 
Is our friendship is nothing more than an illusion? 
 
every time I think of ishida, that idea becomes more and more strength. 
 
For having been in his place, I would have run to the aid of shouko? 
 
Would I have put my life at risk to save her and hold her hand? 
 
undoubtedly, ishida has changed. 
 
And what about me? 
I didn't know this manga is a harem.

So, anyone else following this use Batoto's Follow RSS and get a shitstorm of updates titled "Ch. 0 DELETE" along with all the chapters leading up to 44, but now are dead links?

I suddenly don't give a damn about character development of any other than Nishimiya and Ishida. Hell, they're all the same, hypocritical and coward, the only one that's really making amends for his past mistakes is Ishida.

Spoiler

47 wtf gave that silly girl the idea that she's the only one allowed in his room?

I don't care how bad a girl is treated, kids are going to be kids and it's up to the adults to handle the situation, not turn into a kid and start fighting a kid.  The situation is so fcking grade school.

 

This thought may be a win for u - but to me its a fail... especially the teenager part on ur previous comment. Then again if u wanna see girls as girls, boys as boys and kids as kids then keep doing so but I prefer to see people as people.

Shouko's mom needed to kick the shit at of her daughter.  Her daughter wanted to kill herself, not Ueno.  Everyone is feeling so sorry for Shouku and ignore the  main fact she wanted to kill herself and focus on Ueno beating the living s**t out of her.

 

Not once have I seen Shouku's mom even mention or take any action against Shouku.  Her family is a joke, especially her little sister who kept the whole thing to herself.

 You cant beat depression and low confidence out of people. Hitting her would only serve as personal self-gratification. And of course we feel sorry for Shouko. What do you think made her want to kill herself in the first place? People like Ueno and child-Ishida. The problems can begin to heal if Ueno gracefully bows out of their life for an extended period of time. The two of them didn't get this bad until she popped up again after all. It was like they relasped when she showed up and starting digging at past wounds.

I think that, if my child were "fighting" another one i would only pull her away, but the thing was one-sided there, so if I was Shouko mom I would kick the shit out of Ueno.

I think it's quite insane people are attacking Ueno for acting like a teenager.  That's what teenagers do, they aren't as mature as us and to be so belligerent on a comment board against a minor only shows your immaturity.
 
1.) Adult shouldn't physically assault a teenager, no one should cheer/celebrate it either.  The mom could have simply pulled her away instead of fighting her.
 
2.) If anyone know anything about suicide, there is always signs and the lack of awareness is at an all-time low.  Ueno is probably the most hated right now, but attempting suicide is the most stupid selfish thing in the world.
 
3.) Back to Ueno, the onslaught of foul language used against a minor is insane.  If you don't want your own child called a b***h, don't call someone else child a b***ch(read about immaturity again).  I know there's a huge amount of keyboard warriors, but I'm pretty sure if you use profanity in the presence of that child's parent(IRL), you're teeth are pretty much going to get blasted out.
 
Enough of my rant.

Ishida plans suicide - - Poor guy, life is tough, he needs some hugs!

 

Shouko plans suicide - - String her up!  Slap her selfish butt around until she learns!

Actually you got it backwards. When the series started (it even goes to when it was only a one-shot), there was an army here wanting to murder Ishida for all the shit he did. But after having 20-30 chapters of Ishida actually regretting his behavior and trying to atone for all the bullcrap he did, people started giving him a chance to redeem himself.

Not that I'm trying to justify the behavior of any of 'em, but well, here's my two cents.

RIP Ishida

"see you at the crossroads"

 

Don't think so, Ueno was worried about what he would say when he learns about the fight, so he might not be dead just yet...

Hm, you know, as much as I disagree with Ueno's...method of dealing with stuff, I at least find her much more likable than Kawai.  I mean at least Ueno acknowledges that she wasn't exactly handling things too well.  I find that somewhat admirable if yet pitiful.

 

Kawai?  Well let her speak for herself:

 

Kawai:  Eh?  What are you talking about?  I didn't do anything wrong.  Aren't you the one who did something bad?

 

Now, if I wanted to see anyone slapped or beaten up, it would be this girl.  Maybe Shouko's father's side of the family too.

RIP Ishida

Pretty sure the only reason Ishida didn't get slapped around was because he didn't get around to making the attempt (or cause any direct harm as a result) and decided against it by the time he was confronted on the issue.

 

His mother is fiesty, and I could totally see her (and possibly his sister, but she seems a bit more laid back) slapping him around in grief-stricken anger, especially if his attempt had caused harm to someone else.  Heck, as it was, she almost set the house on fire.

 

Well, that's my view on it.  Obviously, I don't agree with slapping people around, let alone stringing them up, but the situations involved in both cases are different, and so the intensity of emotion is also different, and I can understand and (to an extent) respect that.

Anyone order extra feels? Because I've got extra helpings!

P.S. to all of the depressed people out there:

 

People who care and want to care for your problems are out there. Sometimes they are far away, sometimes it seems like they don't exist, and sometimes it seems like you can't go forward without them. But you can't wait for them to come to you, they don't know where you are! Your new best friend is out there, waiting, and maybe they need to be found as well. GO GET THEM!!

 

Sincerely and with lots of understanding,

XxionxX

 

P.P.S.

Free hugs for everyone who wants them. Yeah it's cheesy but I can't exactly email you my hugs.

 

I've been through some pretty dark times myself (and still am working on them) and the thing that kept me alive through the worst were my nephews. They'd grown fond of me over the years and I just couldn't bear the thought of their mother having to explain why they couldn't see me anymore.

 

So yeah, I've got more than a few people who love me. But that didn't stop me from doing bad stuff; it was the kids who couldn't possibly understand why I would do what I would've done that stopped me.

Damn...dat twist about Yuzuru-chan's pictures. T_T

I guess If you compare it to the novels, manga and PV's you will understand what I mean by "they ruined it". But yes, It was awfully written.
On the other hand, Shaft really loves putting their artistic license on their works. I'm not saying they are a bad studio by any means, but there is also the chance that they could mess this up. Personally I don't believe this or KyoAni are the best choices to make an anime of this.
Btw why is people even talking about this? Lol I just realized this a little pointless since there is not an anime announced or anything...
I'm also kind of glad to see people who understand that while Ueno had reasons to be batshit, It's wrong to pick a fight with someone who doesn't even plan to defense themselves.

The way I see it: She is a temperamental and to certain level emotionally inmature teenager who got extremely mad because she could have lost the person she loved because someone could not stop thinking about how "much wrong" she did to others, instead of growing out of that bubble and try to understand others feelings better.
Of course like I said, hitting Shouko like that was not the answer. But I'm also glad to see more development in the characters (Like Mother Nishimiya, who understood a little bit more her daughters feelings, with Shouko's attemp to jump and Yuzuru saying her sister is her responsability).
With some luck this whole event will open more doors for everyone to forgive themselves or whatever.

I look forward to more development too, but apart from kawai, shouko , to me, is the worst character, (as a person), selfish, violent, impulsive ecc...

about your "absolutely astounding world we live in":

Our world was astounding, yes. It's still astounding but it's less and less every day. And why is that? because people act selfish.

Be honest: people can't create anything with a physical body, they aren't god. They can only destroy things and/or alter their surroundings.

Spoiler

I know I'm a horrible, horrible person for doing this...but I actually cheered every time Shouko's mom bitch slaps Ueno.

What I can say... This is the face of determination... Really, this is the new Shouko!
