Welcome to the NHK especially the last episode. There are two very different attempts.

From Episode 24 summary (no spoilers) Tatsuhiro completes his chase to stop Misaki from committing suicide at the cliff where her mother killed herself years earlier.

I rewatched it and found it very life-affirming and touching. But it comes up in many other episodes. (A suicide party episode)

Good luck with your cousin.


neverinNJ OP wrote The objective of Christiania is to create a self-governing society whereby each and every individual holds themselves responsible over the wellbeing of the entire community. Our society is to be economically self-sustaining and, as such, our aspiration is to be steadfast in our conviction that psychological and physical destitution can be averted.

In case you don't know who they are:

subMedia is a video production ensemble, which aims to promote anarchist and anti-capitalist ideas, and aid social struggles through the dissemination of radical films and videos. Founded in 1994, subMedia has produced hundreds of videos on everything from anti-globalization protests to films about shoplifting. Our films have been screened around the world in social centers and movie theaters and have been watched by millions on the internet. This site is a collection of videos from 2003 onwards.

I donated what I could. While Stim (Franklin Lopez) is gone, their videos are instructive and on target more often than not.

The National Citizens Initiative for Democracy does not change or eliminate Congress, the President, or the Judiciary. Laws created by initiative must still be adjudicated by the courts just like laws created by Congress. The National Citizens Initiative for Democracy adds an additional check –– the People –– to our system of checks and balances, while setting up a governing partnership between the People and their elected representatives.
