      Yeah, I don't understand it either. I understand it from Akari's perspective. E.g. she might have just lost interest after some time in the ldr. That made sense. The feelings got weaker etc. But in his case it seemed that his feelings were strong. I don't get it. One option is that it was her who broke with him. So he couldn't contact her anymore. Otherwise I don't really understand it.

      Since we don't details, it falls under "it be like that sometimes"
      One possibility that might have support is depression.

      I think depression makes a lot of sense, it fits with how we was acting.

      So in this scenario, depression makes him feel like his love doesn't matter, that nothing matters. Or something else. Or nothing else. Depression isn't always explicable. But I think it fits either way.

      Yeah, one can always assume his actions didn't make sense because of e.g. depression. It looks like an easy way out, but it might be the case here.

      I think it makes sense.
        Spoiler:  
      The latter half of chapter 2 he gave off a depressed vibe.

      He was definitely depressed in chapter 3, so it's not like depression wasn't a part of this movie.

        Spoiler:  

      Yeah, he was in chapter 3. But I assumed it was caused by the fact that he couldn't deal with his love. Chapter 2 is still a mystery to me. So what you're saying is something like: "He thought that the ldr wouldn't work, so he got depressed and that caused him to stop communicating with her"?

      I doubt it was something so simple that he thought it wouldn't work. Maybe it was part of it, but depression doesn't even always have a clear cause anyway.

      When I was depressed, my dad asked me well why are you depressed. I'm like dad it doesn't work that way.

      But yeah not being able to see akari for so long...not connecting well with other friends where he was then (I think it seemed like that, I mean the other girl said he seemed different, and as far as I remember she was the only one we saw him talk to and he definitely wasn't really looking at her.) It could be a number of different things, and not something that's easily definable or noticeable, since I don't know that he would have thought, "oh hey I'm depressed".
      Come to think of it, was depression a big topic in 2007? Maybe in japan it was...in tokyo certainly. I remember years ago, maybe around that time, there was a lot of discussion of youth suicide, so it could have more a presence in the japanese conversation in 2007 than it was in the US conversation in 2007.

      Anyway, even if we claim it's depression, it might be silly to try to find a clear cause for it, other than just noticing things around him that weren't ideal for his mental health.

      Either way, depression could definitely stop him from communicating with her. I got the impression that it was a "nothing matters" kinda depression, so he was just miserable and stopped sending messages. It makes sense to me.
