Same here lol. Great, touching documentary. Ito is a great man.

This is proven with how Take turns out.

Takeshi has more serious problems it seems, can't stop stealing from them and promises he will do his best then just says, I wanna go back to state care. All because he doesn't wanna do homework and do right lol, what a lil shit.
