  1. Brilliant summary of Cosmonaut! Can’t wait for the final part…

  2. I can’t hate Takaki that badly. He was being kind to her, but I don’t think he was really leading her on. He could’ve said “quit following me you stalker!” but instead pretended he was happy to see her on the hill. And I think a little bit of him WAS happy to see her/be with her, but he knew he was unable to return her love, so when he sensed she was going to confess he was preparing for the unpleasantness. I still like to think that later when he says that he has “lost all the beautiful things” in his life, that poor Kanae was one of those things, and that looking at that magazine about the launch in the convenience store reminded him of her as well… but I guess we will know shortly ; ). Thanks again for the great work.

  3. Well, if you put it that way then yes… That look was probably Takaki preparing for that unpleasant moment when he had to tell Kanae the truth about his feelings. Ended up he didn’t have to.

    Still, I can’t help but feel there must have been something Takaki could have done to lessen the sorrow such as let her know earlier. He must have known she had feelings for him long ago but then again, I guess he let her stay by his side all this time because he was lonely and needed someone to help fill that empty void Akari left behind.

    And now that you mention it, I never thought about that last magazine scene that way. I only thought of the time that had passed when I was watching that part.

    Nice speculation, Homerless!

  4. Very interesting, thank you!
