** So Amamiya is her biological relative? And wasn't Yuko 16, not 18?

** On the subject of her worth, let's go back to the Turner case. Many speculated that the punishment Turner received for rape, which was less severe than expected, is due to his "white privilege". The privilege Amamiya would use as his "get out of jail free" card is his reputation. Combine that with victim blaming (in this case, Amamiya's excuse for abusing Yuko is that his biological sister should have survived the quake and not her), which is a glaring aspect of rape culture, and you've got a crazy SOB who's more than willing to cover up his crimes until his last breath. Regarding adoption, [[http://japandailypress.com/japans-forgotten-children-113905/ the Japanese orphanage system does not have safeguards against abusive biological parents nor a support system when the children graduate from the orphanage at 18]].

** What do you mean by her worth? How does it get worse with Yuko since she's adopted?

to:

** Considering the sorry state of affairs regarding rape culture and privilege in the criminal justice system nowadays (see the Brock Allen Turner case for a recent example), Amamiya's reputation as a frustrated artist and professor would weigh more than Yuko's worth as a woman. It gets even worse with Yuko since she's adopted.

* What did Amamiya, Yuko's stepbrother, mean by "it'll bring shame on Yuko" if Yuu or Yuko reported the abuse? Wouldn't it be the best thing to do? What's wrong with reporting it?

* So wait...If one town is in Japan and the other one is in Australia, how is it that all the characters are able to talk to each other so well? I mean as far as I can tell, Renji and his mom grew up in Australia, but he is easily able to speak to Kuze, Mizuki, and Chihiro. I mean it is possible that they are all speaking Japanese to each other (like in the sub), or it is possible everyone in the main cast learned a second language. It is just weird that this is never really addressed.

** We all know that the Otowa in Japan was hit by a massive earthquake; and in the aftermath of such a huge disaster, other countries lent their help to rebuild the town, Australia included. As a gesture of gratitude for that aid, the local government of Otowa decided to establish a massive "sister city"-like cultural exchange program that includes the following: establishing the Australian Otowa from a piece of land donated by the Australian government, mandatory English and Japanese language classes for the schools in both towns (this will answer the "second language" question), and worry-free immigration from either Otowa.

** She hasn't rid herself of her condition, and never will. It's just that now she has someone she can rely on who actually wants to be with her, as opposed to Himura who was taking care of her out of courtesy. Yes, she will never be fully independent, but for her it's still a happy ending as it is possible for her to live a happy life.




to:

** The plot takes place in Japan, and some things there are pretty different from what we know. What she needed to get close to someone was a trigger, since most of her classmates just saw her as "that girl who has good grades but is almost never at school", and thus were reluctant to talk to her, and Hiro is the first person who actually had a reason to associate with her (even if that was getting back the money she owed him for the bike); being one who didn't care to stop her from associating with him because he was too busy with his life, he also quickly came to accept her presence as something quasi-natural, which allowed her to find her place at his side. Even in real life people can be weird like that, though situations like that one are kind of uncommon.

** That's the thing. She was never ''at'' school. She always ditched because she thought it was boring. The reason she picked Hiro is because he had the time to be with her.
