>>138357886 The hell are you talking about? The neet at the beginning of the manga was Mari herself. It was Mari following Mari. It wasn't a scene of the real world, but something happening inside Mari's head. You could tell because the couple Isao passed by on the street were actually Mari's parents (young version of them).
The real Isao never knew Mari. He just was being stalked by her.
>>138357886 >>138359345 Here's the page. Those are loli Mari and her parents. They appear in this scene to indicate this is all happening inside Mari's head. And Isao is actually just Mari believing to be Isao, who is chasing after Mari.
So what? Mari was just stalking Isao because he had the comfy life and then went crazy and woke up one day believing she was Isao but was obessessed with Mari even though original Isao never even knew Mari?
>>138361541 Yeah. There are two Mari's. One is the perfect ideal that fulfills everyone's expectations, the other one is Isao (Mari who wants to live a life free from worries and pressure). NEET Mari is fed up with expectations but cherish that Idol perfect image of herself everyone has.
What was the fucking point of the recent arc if Mari just regressed back to "Komori", while "Mari" and "Fumiko" regressed further into her own subconcious? It just became worse. She was supposed to develop just a little bit more after finding Fumiko again.
Man I hate this mangaka for making such pretentious unbelievable shit. An MC getting a Fightclub-tier split-personality because of teenage angst and a relatively easy life? This is why aku no hana was trash too.
I just hope he drops this shit to make Happiness not another forced edgefest.
>>138364713 I could already imagine the shitstorm of that happens.
>>138364883 Well, we haven't had any antagonists yet, and I feel like having the other two personalities go dormant even further was the only way that the mangaka could've properly shown how fucked up Fumiko's mom is.
>teenage angst and a relatively easy life Here's the thing. This is mostly anecdotal, but it's quite common for Asian families to have this weird fixation with pushing an ideal towards the younger generation. Whether it be Japan or South Korea's obsession with cram school, or just a general desire for one's kids to go become a doctor/lawyer/engineer, it can be quite suffocating for kids.
That's why you have something like Persona 5 or the various manga/stories talking about escape, because everything feels so restrictive.
