In this final volume, Mashuu’s father makes some important realizations and Satoko comes to terms with her childhood trauma.
To end this series, Mashuu and Satoko just accept their relationship is unconventional and go on with their lives. It’s not exactly a bittersweet ending, more like what’s the most sensible for the characters at this point. Much like their relationship overall, the ending is muddled but fits them. I’m glad it didn’t go sideways and everything was handled with grace and respect. This is a great series. 5 out of 5.
