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!
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.
