Honestly I would love for it to turn into a full series. The art style is sick and while the villainess mangas have been done to death I also am a huge fan of stereotypical-esque manga. I hope it wins the yuri hime survey!
Honestly, I can kind of get it. I have the experience to attest to the fact that you do NOT expect your crush to be into the same sex. Of course, the type of lines Ayaka says to Hiroko are so fucking gay, though if you're so far down the "Everyone that I know is straight" rabbithole you'll also think that your crush is just insufferably straight.
Damn this is honestly quite interesting. I do not like sad manga's at all but because I liked the art of Sasuke's other work I'll probably read it. I feel like it will somewhat be like the "beauty and the beast girl" was in the sense that the blind girl already knew that she was faking an identity. I feel like if this manga is done correctly it could go down incredibly well.
Also this is honestly one of the weirdest fucking shifts of a mangaka's works I've ever witnessed haha. Went from kinda degen romance comedy to tragic blind historical manga.
thanks for translation. I hope kinako and natsumi get more interactions in season three. As I may be misremembering but their relationship was not brought up too much. And I mean it's basically just the whole "opposites attract" schtick that I, my stereotype loving self, love.
edit: ok after a bit of lollygagging for a bit and then reading for the rest I finished, to be honest I read the ln like a year ago and I got to this point within it before the translated chapters stopped. It might be because I'm a cunt for stereotypical stuff but I love this manga/novel a lot. It's very fluffy, only problem for me is, y'know, 17. Though I still hold it deep inside of my heart.
