Oh god, finally a Japanese version of Sakura Gari chapter 7 is out. It's available here. I've been stalking the comm waiting for someone to post it, ever since the Chinese version popped up A WEEK AGO. I was tempted to download the Chinese version, but I'm glad I didn't because this is such a talky story.
I knew Katsuragi was going to die, but I didn't expect how delicious the entire thing ended up being. I loved how Souma used Katsuragi's wife in his revenge. And Katsuragi choking Souma! And Souma looking way too luscious laying on the floor! Souma really does sleep with everything, doesn't he? And the great thing is it's really not sexy or hot. Every time I see him sleep with someone it makes me sad for him, because he's so broken.
The interaction between Souma and Masataka was awesome. Masataka, being normal, just wants to deny everything because it's all crazy. Souma totally knows he's fucked up, and all he wants is Masataka to not deny the reality of Souma's feelings. Yet Masataka can't help but deny and push away absolutely everything.
Masataka and his little brother made me sad. That little brother really is a good little kid. Too bad his parents weren't able to treat Masataka the same, and caused Masataka to resent him.
I am having problems with Sakurako. She is great at being crazy revenge-filled bitch, but that's all she is. She doesn't have the complexity that Masataka and Souma have, and so I tire of the scenes she's in. I wish Souma would get over his guilt and just off her, but I know he can't. Or at least, if he does it'll have to be towards the end when his doom is sealed or something.
I am dreading the last chapter now. I think Watase-sensei will actually deliver with the absolutely fucked-up ending I wanted, and I fear just how bad it will be. Souma just has no chance! Sakurako definitely will die as well. Not so sure about Masataka...I wonder if he'll survive but be filled with guilt? I assume he will realize too late that he loves Souma--actually, does Masataka actually love Souma? I kind of default to that position, but sometimes I wonder. Watase-sensei does such a good job of portraying him as trapped in a web...
