No Longer Human, Volume 2 - Osamu Dazai, Usamaru Furuya

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

Yozo's too-good-for-him fiancee get raped and then probably blamed for her own rape by Yozo.
