Washio Yutaka: Earlier, when you asked me about the type of woman I like and I was describing her, a certain person's face spontaneously came to my mind. I wasn't conscious of it at all so I'm surprised myself, but that person's face came to my mind.

Taniguchi Takumi: "Life is more hellish than hell itself." by Akutagawa Ryunosuke
Washio Yutaka: It's not that Takumi likes Yoriko. He just wants to get married to sustain his lifestyle, so it doesn't matter who he marries. It can even be you. Why are you supporting those two when you know that?
Shimada Kaori: The answer is simple. It's because he doesn't particularly like me.
Shimada Kaori: I want to be loved. No matter how much I like him, if he doesn't feel the same way, I'll just be miserable being with him.
Taniguchi Tsutomu: It's not strange at all that she thought about making preparations to close out her life. As a matter of fact, it's a natural thing to do.

Being prepared so that you're ready whenever your time comes, I think we all need to do that.

Yabushita Yoriko: I thought happiness came naturally once one fell in love. But apparently, that's not the case...
Yabushita Yoriko: "Even if it's agonizing, even if you're miserable, if you're not with that person, life has no meaning. Maybe that's what love is." by Yabushita Yoriko
