Wow really refreshing take using the gender bender concept. I really liked how the message wasn't really about whether or not Maki would love Nico as a man or a woman, but about how changing Nico's sex affected an important part of her life because of society's rules for men and women. I enjoyed it!
I feel bad for everyone except Yoru. Why did she even sleep with Sei if she knows how obsessed she is with her? To only go back to her unfaithful husband.
I think if Aya didn't show up, Yoru might've begun to pursue something with Sei. As disturbed Yoru is by Sei's obsession with her, I do think she takes comfort in knowing there's always someone who wants her (that in at least one person's eyes she is their number 1) because all the guys she falls in love with always end up cheating on her.
I think it was very common for Yoru to go running to Sei as a rebound in the past so it's what she's doing here. There's a reason why Sei hasn't been able to let go all these years...I think on some level Sei knows that Yoru still cares for her (or that Yoru is also unhealthily dependant on her as well) so she keeps holding onto the hope that Yoru will come back to her.
Edit: ok yeah rereading the last 2 chapters that is basically what is being implied. Yoru straight up asks Sei what Sei would do if she were to break up with her husband (implying she might be interested in a relationship) and the scene before they graduate with Sei saying she'll always be waiting for Yoru no matter what so Yoru knows she'll always have someone to fall back on when she's hurt.
But if the series is ending soon and Yoru really won't be showing up again, by not giving Aya her contact info, she's finally breaking them out of this toxic cycle (that Sei straight up ranted about in the previous chapter)
It's wild seeing all the comments against the poly ending. I get personal preferences, but this series spelled out the intended end game right at the start.
I can see where all those people are coming from actually, the chemistry between Rin and Mayuki is just that good.
I'm looking forward to the poly elements being introduced though, it will be interesting to see who objects and even more interesting to see what sort of "solutions" the girls come up with ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
Thank you Canno for blessing us with this, and thank you translation team for all your hard work!
We all know this is a poly manga from page 1, but the chemistry with Akira is just not there yet with either Rin or Mayuki. She's always been kinda meh to me from the start, so it'll take more chapters for me to warm up to her and it'll depend on how Canno will write Akira from now on.
I think most of us aren't against a poly end (there are sooo many manga where I wished it ended with poly), but we are just against Akira for now haha
Oh man I actually really like Shiho and I kinda want her and Miwa to work out (they're cute), but I also want Saeko and Miwa to work out because they've been working so hard on figuring out their relationship.
....If Saeko/Miwa end up like the one-shot, senpai would make a nice rebound HAHA
Ofc if Shiho and Miwa were to happen though, it shouldn't be immediately and Shiho would need to put in a lot of work to make up for those 2 years of ghosting. I hope at the very least they can talk it out and become friends again, but also acknowledge that Shiho did a shitty thing and shouldn't be completely forgiven so easily.
Thank you so much for translating this and giving me closure after 6 years. The credits image pretty much summed up my feelings though. The ending was really abrupt and disappointing after the great cliff hanger in ch 2.....maybe this is also why it also took so long for someone to want to pick it up?
There were still some pretty funny moments though. I particularly enjoyed Umi's extra fail save hahaha.
Even if the end was pretty anticlimatic, I'm still happy to have been able to read the end. Thank you again. Thank you thank youuu.
I definitely think this last plot point needed a whole volume to itself, but ah well it is what it is. Since it was so rushed, I would've preferred a normal, really sweet and cute slice of life chapter so we can enjoy their time together one last time. It was still a really sweet series though. Thanks to everyone who worked on it!
