|... there I was reading this, thinking something romantic and kind of sappy -- a real feel-good ending -- might happen, and then you go off and talk about Junpei, and even though you said there was no ending, I forgot and started expecting one...|
Good read, though. The longer I live in Japan, the more pressure I feel to be like that Junpei guy. People simply don't get to know each other like they do in other places. Maybe it's just a Tokyo/big-company thing. Yet another reason to head for other parts of Japan.
