Ukyou: …And like that, it’s still here.
MC: —That’s right. I read in a book that, because this house’s structure is special, it was appointed as an important property of culture, and was thus spared from being destroyed.
I went to an ijinkan* because I wanted to see this building.
And then… I met him at this place.
Ukyou: …For some reason, I feel like I can reunite with my grandfather once more here.
I’m… very happy right now.
You’re the first person to notice me crying.
I wonder if you can pretend like you don’t notice?
MC: That’s because… Nobody wants to be in a place where they can be seen crying.
Ukyou: Thank you for taking notice.

[If this was sci fi I’d speculate that he’s literally a denpa otoko / part alien or what and his split personalities were not just from a result of his world hopping but also as a result of his genetics fighting each other XD;;; kinda like Spock. It’s so tempting].
