I agree, it's kinda stilted. I like the art, the angst, the fluff. But the plot hints at half-a-dozen things that it doesn't really flesh out. It could've been twice as long for all the things it brought in but didn't tie up. Still, not bad.
Finally got around to reading this, I've definitely been missing out. Chapters 57 & 58 are some of the best I've ever read. That reveal, followed up by a really fun couple & a normally-dour Honoka just acting adorable. This series is awesome.
