In this final volume Yozo has been lulled into a sense of comfort with his new life and young wife. All that he holds dear is completely destroyed when he finds out that the person he loves is even potentially worse off than he. After his wife is sexually assaulted by a business acquaintence, Yozo can no longer envision her as the beautiful pure woman that tamed his soul many months before. Now his wife is little more than a doll for charming men, and instead of confronting her or even devising a threat for divorce, Yozo simply moves on. But moving forward towards nothingness is not progress. It can only be seen as the end. From here on out Yozo's life is sub-human.

This was a really interesting look at how a promising career, marriage, and life could turn sour. Drug addiction makes it worse, and you can see how the creative (and for the most part A-hole main character) really just couldn't cope with anything and became a monster of human being. The charming stereotypical housewife turned into a tragic bitter woman because of the events, and basically it's all downhill. Read it till the end.
