    You fuckers just read it for the sex and violence, don't you? WHY WON'T YOU APPRECIATE HOW DEEP AND EMOTIONAL THE STORY IS

    I'm so mad I won't even come up with a witty summary of Chapter 45.

    Incidentally, this is where Volume 7 ends, Volume 8 begins.

    And here's Chapter 46, which features a lot of meaningful violence.

    What is the point of the manga? Well IMO what it does, it does it to entertain. It makes me think in a movie like Driver that while it was only an action movie the content was subtle and didn't give you all the answers which made you think. In this case this is just a well done action-seinen manga that presents different characters in this exaggerated enviroment that I guess represent actual society with the ridiculous war that nobody understands why they're fighting, the zero value of life shown in the enforcements and the war, all these predators hunting and all the zebras like yamada that go on with their lives until they get touched with this madness, the struggles to survive, etc.

    In the middle of all is our hero Mizoguchi Kano... I gotta say, from what I know, the author has a good grasp on what is the mindset of a psychotic. A friend that's studying to be a psychoanalyst told me that for them there are 3 "mind structures", one of them is that of the "psychotic" (USA and other places only have a certain type of psychology so they may know it with other names), the thing that differentiates the psychotic from the "neurotic" (which are normal people) is that they lack the means to understand "the metaphor". He gave me an example: You may tell a psychotic "can you close the door?" and he may respond "yes" if he could instead of closing it, in a way its the most "pure logic" structure, they take everything you say in a literal way. These are the people that also get hallucinations, just like our friend Kano so IMO its well done.

    Why did he put him here? Because he's a cool badass, that's why. The author looks to be entertaining and I thank him for it.

    Surprisingly enough, there is an explanation for that other than "He's just psychotic.".

    In tonight's exciting update, the story reaches a shocking conclusion!

    Chapter 48, where the nice lady gives her interpretation of the events thus far.

    Thus, the long arc ends. I'm going to post the next chapter, which acts as an epilogue to it, in the next update, and chapter 52 (which is the last in Volume 8) after we reach the next page. Then, it will be awesome and happy times for fans of Mizoguchi-kun, as we slowly approach the final arc.

    The surviving rookie really is trying to be like Yamada, isn't he? The whole 'I kill for the enforcement act, so it's different', and 'principled enough to ignore your crap'.

    The other rookie wanted to be Mizoguchi I guess, but he was too much of a zebra to pull it off.

    Took a while but at last the dirty criminal suffered its fair punishment. Good thing the girl survived, it would be a waste if she died. The surviving rookie wants to be Lawful Good, let's see how long it takes until he snaps (or dies).
