**Volume 7 spoilers**

Well, that was depressing as hell. Not only did the author make Kazuki kill himself like 200k+ times, but also every single human inside the box, only to leave him in complete solitude until he lost his ability think or function like a human being in general.

That aside, this was an amazing conclusion to what i consider the very best read ive encountered so far in my life. Even though the origin of the boxes wasn't directly explained (from what i gathered), i didn't feel like it was necessary, as that wasn't the focus of the story to begin with. Everything tied up perfectly with conclusions of each character continueing their lives despite being heavily influenced by the boxes, and with my man Kazuki getting the girl.

This volume was pretty painfull though. Througout the series, reading Kazuki's massive amount of dialogue have really grown on me, his ideals, views and train of thought. Towards the end, on his recovery, we see his dialogue as quite robotic, and doesn't even slightly resemble the Kazuki we knew in volume 1-6. This somehow left me with a really weird feeling, even if the end was supposed to mark the return of his everyday life.

Most people coming on this thread probably has no idea what Hakomari is, but if you are awesome and have read it, what are your thoughts on the final volume, or the series in general?

I finished it yesterday, it is definitely the best piece I've ever read.

Now even if I die, I will die without any regrets.
