And finally, the user’s message:

  • The video is an example of greatness and gratitude towards my father, the oldest otaku whom I admired the most. I can’t thank my father enough for the many times he reached out to me, even though I was no longer a child. How can depression be cured so easily? I think it totally depends on each person. I am not completely cured and I am still taking medication. But I can sleep, I am independent and I can study and work.
  • Luckily, my father is still in great health and now I am returning the favor in many ways. Definitely, thanks to my father I am the person I am today, so I want to fulfill any filial duty that comes to mind… I am not going to talk about my mother here, because it would be too complicated. The reason why I don’t attend live shows and read some media is also related to this depression. I’m not a good person to talk about my mother, so I won’t mention her here…
  • I try to control my illness by prioritizing my daily life and limiting my activities to social media. I have heard that this disease is prone to relapses. I am very grateful to everyone who has read this far. I wrote this article for those interested in the aftermath, thanks to my parents, and additional information. I was also happy to be able to talk about my father, whom I admire, on Twitter.
