Insane in the membrane.

Abusive fathers.

The last straw.

Life is a game.

3/3 + 1. Souichi is one of my favorite non-main characters in this show. Other than the fact that he is voiced by one of my top VA (Miyuki Sawashiro <3!), the role of the insane kid kinda interests me. He’s not just insane though, he’s a B-ranked Btooom player as well. Another important aspect of this episode is the abusive father relationship. I’ve read a number of reports that suggest child-abuse leads to mental instability and I certainly believe them. The young years of a person are usually the most influential and they end up shaping the future of that person, in at least personality.
