Makoto does not have it easy. He gets bullied in School and has problems with his father due to skipping school. His outlook on life brightens when Kirisaki, a girl in his class, compliments his drawing skills. A while later he sees her getting harassed by the ringleader of his bullies. He decides to intervene, but is cut short by the revelation that she is the ringleader's girlfriend who incited the bullying in the first place. Depressed by his situation Makoto decides to kill himself. He lands in purgatory, neither Heaven nor Hell with the mission to save the lives of six people, whose life will be negatively affected by his suicide... his father, his bullies and Kirisaki.
Honestly, I was just curious and searching for a psychological manga with some more mature themes. What I found was this... I want to like the story but, the MC is unbearably naive and a pushover at best. The characters that are affected by his suicide, should not have been redeemed in the slightest (Spoiler warning below) The bullies that he "redeems" sexually assaulted him and others on the daily, physically and mentally abuse him to the point where he wanted to commit suicide, and in the end they survive what should have been a fatal injury 😕. Like I wanted to like the story in the beginning and should've noticed signs, but I stuck through thinking it was going to get better. The point that the author was at times making fun of depressed and mentally unstable people by basically saying stop being selfish and think about your actions, shows that they didn't have to deal with anything of the sort, nor did they have anyone else that did. If they did they would've made the story just a little bit more empathetic toward how the Mc and maybe others in his shoes would feel. Actually give him a reason to redeem those people, but all they gave was more reason for the reader to want the Mc to kill them. It's honestly frustrating cause i see potential, hate to see it. I still recommend to read it so that you can give your own opinion.
