Kumichou's Umi's facial expressions of her strict samurai persona just before she switches to doting mode or when she and Kotori are fighting are one of a kind. I can't put my finger on it, but her :< face is somehow charming and cute.
I was a bit puzzled by that remark, too. I had thought that the multi-chapter volume about them back in school had already established them as lovers. But oh well, you can always chalk it up to the last few vestiges of tsun left in Maki.
This reminds me of the one-shot about a girl who always cheers others, including the girl she liked when that girl confessed to another girl, though it's ending is on a much lighter note compared to this one.
yes, and after the delusion she cleaned out the pachinko, that one shot is really fun
I think a little more development would have helped the story. "I don't know" leaves them exactly where they started from. I mean, she doesn't even acknowledge what happened.
I imagine that's rather the point. Ecchan is in love with someone mercurial and unreliable, who might disappear at any moment. Mai-chan says she loves her back, but their relationship is ambiguous and unstable.
Yeah, I know. But just the prologue's plot would have sufficed to show that. The next chapter didn't really add more to it. Maybe one of the two should have been more fleshed out instead. It was just more of the same, with rather short delivery.
Is the ending of this chapter really that she still had doubts and remembered her moments with Mado-chan but then the surprise kiss has her smitten? I don't know why, but this really gets my goat. Yagi can go jump into a lake for all I care.
