The last couple of chapters on Crunchyroll manga certainly felt like they were wrapping things up.

On one hand, I'll be sad to see it wrap up and go... On the other, it has seemed stretched a bit thin, taking rather longer than it should have.

In my personal opinion this is better than the flowers of evil.
Chapter 78 was just plain amazing ! the writing is too beautiful !
Can't wait to see the ending

Well, we did finally get what had been foreshadowed since the first volume, but I was hoping there'd be more than just a denouement after it. There has to be some dramatic potential in spoiler[a teenage girl figuring out how to cope with mental illness after she's finally acknowledged it for what it is]. Recognizing the problem is the first step, right? Not the last?

As it is, the core conflict seems almost... trivial. Like it could've been unraveled at any time by spoiler[the real Komori getting fed up and asking Mari, "What's my mother's name?"] Like it wasn't really necessary for the protagonist to undergo any personal growth, or maybe like an obvious challenge to the protagonist's worldview was never posed.

I dunno, maybe I was just waiting for the wrong things.

The title reminds us of Being John Malkovich Laughing
