Content warning: Suicide The base premise of this story is that there is a certain "philosophy that could only have been crafted by death itself" and that the majority of people who hear the ideas within this philosophy end up deciding to commit suicide. On the one hand, mental manipulation is definitely possible, so people being convinced to commit suicide isn't outside of the realm of possibility. But I don't think the time frame put forth within this manga is anywhere near long enough to do that type of thing. And also, this manga isn't even portraying it as manipulation, but instead seems to be saying that it's the philosophy itself which is convincing people. And I think it's silly to treat any ideas as so inherently persuasive that they could convince someone to give up on living. Even if people can't always articulate why they want to live, the desire to live (or the subtly different desire to not die) would probably overpower any persuasiveness within the arguments of a twenty-minute spiel. In conclusion, the base premise of this story just comes across as silly and dumb, and doesn't evoke any sense of dread or anxiety or really anything in me (other than maybe annoyance at having read this empty story).
