damn, if this isn't made into a Fox Starlight indie film here in the states i'd be very sad (not as sad as when i finished the novel of course but still)

Man...that hit deep. And maybe not even in the way that the author intended for me. I'm at the point where I feel worthless enough that I think I'd sell off most of my life right this moment if I could. But this guy found his redemption through that process. It makes me wonder how desperate I need to find myself before I can start changing myself for the better. Will I need to find out I'm worth 30 yen? Will I need to see my childhood friend's suicide note? idk. Really heavy food for thought.

 

10/10

FLCL was released in 2000, I am pretty glad to have had the Pillows in my life for almost 20 years

well I expected a bunch that was going to know the band for FLCL ... don't know all the albums, but still loved the music (have the OST for a loooong long time, the band is great)

 

ps/edit: goddammit it was a good read, hearing runner's high (midnight down and borderline case for the last 2 chapters) while reading the last half was pretty good ... it actually made me cry a little.

for ch.4 the song he was listening was from the band The Pillows (it's actually and album too)

*Reads book*

A bitter sweet ending is still bitter...

I liked it, but like all other books I've read with bitter sweet endings, I wish the characters could've had a happier conclusion... (You know, without the whole "We're still going to die in three days" thing)

Its still really good, but I wanna cry now... T^T

Also the same vgperson translater also did the light novel/short story: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B075-RPoqHSkZ0VoVExfYi1pVWM/view

Thats a happy end in my book.

Just finished reading the LN, beautiful story.

one heavy story, and it s good too, i like it

Glad to see Jump+ series getting some love. This one's a gem.

Well i didnt expect a the pillows reference there,kinda makes sense to mc emotions. For the people that want to listen to it the cd at chapter 4 is please mr lostman from the pillows.

Somehow I feel calm after reading this.

Very heartwarming manga for depressed people, and it really shows what life is truly about. This would make a great anime movie IMO.

I absolutely loved this (is love even the right word?). Kusunoki was so relatable in some ways to me, and I even felt kinda inspired at the end.

Somehow I always see them as adult Yukino and 8man

It was nice, but for a story with such gravitas, there were some system-related details that I just couldn't have hand-waved, but were.

 

Assuming you can ignore the details surrounding the transacting of life, the catharsis was pretty great.

snip

It's kinda a 50/50 split, really.

Well, shit. This hits pretty hard right now.

In case anyone stumbles across this for whatever reason, this has been fully translated into English: http://vgperson.com/other/mangaviewer.php?m=3

Bless you!

As nice of a read as it is... Man that is depressing.

 

I respectfully disagree! This, like most of Sugaru Miaki's works, is actually more cheerful(although not optimistic) and bittersweet than outright sad. He talks about this in the afterword to one of his other novels, which I'll put here under spoiler tags with the title censored to avoid ruining it for anyone who'd like to read his other works.

Three Days of Happiness is pretty similar thematically, or at least I consider it to be. I think about this manga/novel a lot and whenever I do it cheers me up.
