I already predicted they’re half siblings the moment Maki said her father died. Hmm... I’m contemplating if I should like this incest thing between them but well their blossoming love for each other is so regretting to throw away. I wonder if Hibari is up to tell Maki? Give sequel.
Nozomi is confusing. Whether she already moved on from her husband or not, no one knows. She seen very happy with Shino, either she feels in love with her or just being dependent to her not to feel lonely. One thing that I noticed from ch.74 when her co-teacher invited her to drink and called her Kishibe-san, (coz according to her co-teacher, she invites her as Kishibe-san and not as Nozomi-sensei, since Nozomi-sensei is sort of strict and proper) Nozomi kinda stricken, and said it’s been a while since she heard someone called her Kishibe san. Obviously it reminds her that she was actually married and once was someone else’s wife. It seems to me, Nozomi kinda forgot about that truth. Not sure if coz she was still in the state of denial of her husband's death or that Shino really helped her move on and invaded her mind fully. Nozomi’s crying seeing the ring might be real sadness about her late husband or just out of guilt realizing herself she’s moving on. Well, no one knows the answers lol. Kuzushiro really played this story well. I actually couldn’t predict where the hell this is going to.
I've only read the latest four chapters or so. Shino saying that she wished she realized Nozomi's feelings earlier sounds pretty gay and not a bait.
That said, this seems slow going. Is it going to be worth reading I wonder? And when will it conclude?
You’re asking if it’s worth reading? Yes. For me at least. I remember someone recommended it last 2 years on a twitter. And I read the chapters until I reach the latest in one sitting and can’t wait for more lol. It is kinda slow but that’s given since it’s sol. Another thing that I was thankful is that this is at least updated bi-monthly. When will it conclude? No one knows. Kuzushiro seems still enjoying teasiNg the readers, and sort of successful playing minds where it goes or just whatever.
