Ah, great show. One of the first anime I watched--was like 11 years old, though, so I wasn't quite prepared for it.
Still, if that's the case, I'd argue Mayu being repeatedly molested by her stepfather should be at least as bad as the rape of Ai.
Its not the situation, its the circumstances and how it comes across.
They tried to make Mayu's pasts heart-wrenching but I just didnt feel it.
This poor girl got raped, and she couldn't do a thing about it, the evil from those damn bully girls that got her raped, the action of the guy killing them all, and trying to ****ing kill himself because he couldn't protect her, and her stopping him, saying she'll take his pain away.
He loves her so much but he couldn't protect her, there was nothing either of them could do.
You can tell how horribly they were both affected by the act.
Mayu just says "No", and runs off.
She never got that chance, or that choice.
