School is tough in Japan. Bullying doesn't have to be physical doesn't even have to be verbal. Simply ignoring or neglecting someone can be bullying. It could have been anything from something someone in their family said or didn't say to a teacher being harsh in their criticism knowing they could do better and they just took it the wrong way or something as simple and believing they were going to fly to another planet. Though no one will truly know what they were thinking without the suicide letters. Maybe there is still an ongoing investigation depending on the content or way is which the letters were written. It is sad to think that someone so young could fathom their life having no meaning when they haven't even begun their life yet.
