Interesting chapter ,Tetsuo is forced to smoke opium to make him addicted so he can have no choice but to stay in the village, however i looks like he was already used to smoke, Tetsuo sure has a lot of skeletons in his closet . Also someone releases the water in the dam which destroys the poppy field , everyone thinks that Manji did it so the villagers would be forced to abandon the village , but four days later he is found stabbed to death.
This chapter was both hilarious and tragic , Dora goes through some realisations, just when he thought he had everything under control , that he is on top of the world and a really bad calculated motherfucker, he realises that he still has boundaries, I guess that in his head he thought himself a bit like a vigilante , punishing “the bad people “ for their bad deeds. Now he comes face to face with the real test , he’ll have to take care of his former girlfriend Aya.
