m manga

Isa talks a lot about avoiding an “irresponsible ending” like the ones he thought of in the past, and he feels the pressure of carrying that responsibility. He also mentions that he truly wants to go for a “good ending”, one that would “bring a moment of joy to the fans” and, while this could just be funi’s iffy translation (need to wait for the aniplus one), I’m feeling pretty confident that at least the “everybody dies” ending he originally planned is truly 100% off the table, and it won’t be a complete and utter tragedy either. Despite the bleak outlooks currently in the manga, I’m fairly optimistic again!

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
Looking back, I can’t remember the truth. I blew everything out of proportion so I could feel the hurt and betrayal and write about it in vivid detail. It was my own method of torture. My own undoing; and I enjoyed every second of it.
