Fuck. Even though I read the spoilers regarding these events, I never knew watching it happen would have such emotional impact. In Kariya’s defense, it was unjust for Aoi to simply deny him of his reason for joining the war.
He fought, giving his all, suffering greatly as he was toyed by fate itself yet he persevered for he had a goal in mind. With Aoi gone, or as it turns out later, a vegetable, what reason does Kariya have left?
Will he be able to resolve himself to continue for Sakura’s sake or will he succumb to the darkness he plunged himself into?
