It's just that my nature has a characteristic, which is 'very hard to change on the surface'. That's what it is." Aoki explained in such an unpredictable way, but at the same time, hit the core of the problem. Indeed, Aoki didn't seem to have much change even when involved in this strange situation. But it was because he didn't change much that his impression seemed to even fluctuate more than normal people. "Though just now I started to speak of things that I wouldn't normally say, all I want to say is that 'the problem is to understand yourself and learn your own way of living'. Although changing that personality of self-sacrificing is better, there are things that can only be done with that personality, right? Besides, in most cases, it's hard to change even when you want to, right?" From what I hear, his words seem to mean giving up some things, but the main point of his words had a definite difference from that of giving up.
