Moguro is quite a cruel person when you think about it. Neither of the characters this week particularly deserved the outcome of their story, unlike previous characters who have had some deep character flaw. Story 1 has a guy who has fallen in love at first sight but insists it has nothing to do with the girl’s looks.
This makes him a little delusional but not an inherently bad person, and really, he probably would have been fine if he’d found out the girl had buck teeth under her mask however turning into whatever that was definitely pushed it past the plausible.
In the second story, the guy is actually a kind of nice guy. You could claim his motivation for sharing his paradise with the girl was that he was attracted to her, but even if it was a friend, he had something that was working well for him and he wanted to share it.
This makes the stories this week different int tone from the previous ones where the characters either deliberately asked for trouble or acted in ways where the consequences made you feel strangely satisfied. Still enjoying these strange little stories each week.

I think this week’s episode was more of a lesson in if it’s too good to be true it probably is.
That’s true. And certainly it explains why neither of the characters really had it coming because all sorts of people get taken in by offers too good to be true.
I think I may watch this. Not sure yet.
It is probably good because you don’t have to commit to it. Each story is fairly stand alone so even if you watch in bits and pieces it will probably be fine. At least with the episodes out so far.
Good to know . Thank you
