Added DiffLines:

* AlternateTimeline: [[spoiler:Due to the VN's MultipleEndings, Ange essentially meets one of two fates. In the "Magic" ending, she averts her suicide attempt, cuts a deal with Okonogi that allows her to leave her Ushiromiya name behind, and goes on to become a successful children's author who reopens the Fukuin household. In the "Trick" ending, Ange returns to the EP 4 timeline, but catches on to Amakusa's plan to murder her, so she murders him and the boat captain instead, [[DarkMessiah choosing to live on as a ruthless intellectual rapist]]. The manga follows the "Magic" ending timeline, with the wrinkle that Ange actually did unsuccessfully attempt suicide before the events of the ending transpired.]]
