Story Edit

Satoru's mother's inner turmoil

Her plans to get back at her husband for his mistreatment

Satoru's mother has brought her son to hospital, concerned that her son is watching the same anime. Detailing one such instance, at the time she was washing dishes in the kitchen and considers her husbands attitude towards herself. Frustrated, she reasons that is the reason he is having affairs. Thinking how to get her own back against him, she gleefully considers committing suicide.

The inner fantasy is visualized by Satoru, and she heads to comfort him as he bangs his head against a table, asking why does he always do this.

Back at the hospital she tells the doctor she thinks she should have Satoru committed and begins sobbing.[1]

A photograph is seen of her with Manabu, her husband, after they both passed away in an accident.[2]

The visualization of slicing herself up is remembered by Satoru as he describes the unpleasantness of being trapped inside people's feelings.[3]
