I'm a librarian who loves anime, manga, and reading a wide variety of genres.
Finished! This was a lot better than the first volume, in part because I've accepted that this is Furuya's No Longer Human rather than a true adaptation of Dazai's book. Furuya and my interpretations of the book differ wildly.
While I thought this volume was better, I've decided I'm going to stop here. This volume ends on a relatively positive note, and I'd rather end things here than watch(show spoiler)
