[Sticky] It Should Be Noted (RR = Godot)
I will get flack for this, but it's kind of a peeve of mine 😉 there's a difference between characters only mentioned but never seen and heard and Le Bossu where the character was real just long unseen 😉
Sometimes change happens for external circumstances, like how Chiyoki left drawing behind to take over the family restaurant and it can also be internal, simply giving up on it (I know I almost quit for good just a month ago).
Then there's the "unthinkable" as a reason why they weren't seen.
Life is like a boxing chocolate, you never know what you'll get, except for the hook.
