| Sequel!
Although it's not stated in this entry, 'Sad Vacation' (2007) is a continuation of Kenji's story, which begins with Aoyama's earlier work, 'Helpless' (1996).

I was happy that 'Sad Vacation' was made because I really did wonder what would happen to him after The End. Were he be able to retain a sense of humanity after shedding his life in 'Helpless'? So many questions. And finally, 'Sad Vacation' provides these answers. Some I found satisfying and some I didn't. Some characters from 'Helpless' appear in this sequel, such as Yuri.

Overall, 'Sad Vacation' doesn't really work well as a standalone, particularly for those who haven't seen 'Helpless' yet. For those who have seen the prequel, 'Sad Vacation' is somewhat anti-climactic, but still worth seeing.
