No, not depressing. This is bullshit.
Depressing is a largely wordless chapter when Alpha notices a sleeping Maki and how it seems only recently she was just a tiny little kid. "Too fast."
Depressing is the old man telling Alpha about how it seems everyone has moved away except the two of them... then he has to mention that "Sooner or later, it's gonna get even more quiet around here" and seggests that maybe she should move the cafe to the station.
God Dammit. Something's in my eye.
