I just realized how depressing this manga is. Not just because Aoshima is an annoying dick but how he turns down others for an ideal that may never come true. It’s like he’s burning bridges at a young age.
And oddly enough, I find this gamble quite romantic, quite enjoyable. Comedy aside, the huge risk that Aoshima is playing compels me to want more of this manga. Not everyone is given a chance to escape from their own realities after all, so I find it quite logical for Aoshima, who realizes his own self-worth, to give his all, his back on the wall, just because he have a “cheat” goal that came from the future.
