Rec is complete! =)
I really do love this manga. <3 It has a unique plot, lovable characters, and great delivery. All plot threads were neatly tied at the end; nothing was left hanging, and it even left you with a thought-provoking question. I don't think I could have asked for a better ending, considering it's a tragedy. xD Man, I love this mangaka's stuff.
Enjoy the finale of Rec!

Thoughts [spoilers, highlight to view]:
They really used the gimmick of not crying well. <3 The line that went like "You cry because you treasure yourself, and that means someone loves you" is the key to the whole story. Aizawa never cried because no one truly loved her, and she couldn't understand intense feelings of lost love, which is why she didn't cry during the movie or when her cat died... when she found out how much Satoru loved her from the video - so much that he would use the last moments of his life loving her - she cried, because she treasures herself and his love for her. That's my interpretation anyways... lots of food for thought.
