I'll be honest, I have absolutely no idea what Harumin could have meant with that "I have a lot to learn" Matsuri's reaction the the cat was cute tho

It's an expression of admiration towards..."someone" (either Yuzu or Matsuri). Which "someone" is left intentionally ambiguous in the original Japanese, so I had to get extremely creative with the translation to maintain that ambiguity while preserving as much of the original meaning as possible.

Personally, I think she's talking about Matsuri. She envies and admires Matsuri's boldness and willingness to take action (which she demonstrated this chapter with her brazen gift and constant teasing). A lack of direction in her life seems to be Harumi's chief issue throughout the last few chapters, so I think she envies Matsuri here in much the same way she envies Maruta (and wishes she could be more like that herself, hence the "I have a lot to learn").

However, I also think that Matsuri thinks that Harumi is talking about Yuzu with this line (which is one of the main reasons it was so difficult to translate). Matsuri seems to be convinced that Harumi has feelings toward Yuzu (whether this is true or not, we still don't know for sure), and she teases and prods her about it on multiple occasions this volume. She expects words of admiration like that to be referring to Yuzu, not to her.

This is just my perspective from having read the original and having paid close attention to the interactions between these two during the chapters I've worked on. It's still left up to interpretation by the author, and more information will likely surface in Volume 5.

This is a very interesting interpretation and certainly lines up with whatever we've seen on the series so far. I also found it very curious how chipper Matsuri was around Harumin, especially since in the last main chapter she was kind of depressed.

That cat must be Matsuri's spirit animal, just showing up out of nowhere and deciding Harumi's house is theirs.

You are correct, Maruta was a third-year when Yuzu enrolled at Aihara Academy at the start of Citrus.

As for the chapter I liked that it clarified what is going on between Maruta and Mitsuko even though it was blatantly obvious and yeah, we're heading into a HaruMatsu focused arc.

This went from 0 to 10000 in the blink of an eye. Like, is commendable that Ai is willing to take responsibility but boy, Misumi's parents are going to have the surprise of their lives, their kid is not only seeing someone older but a woman to boot.

May I ask but what chapter is that?

It happened a year ago in the Chapter July 1st Part 2

Good chapter even if it was a bit short.

I like the way Matsuri has mellowed out and is actually treating Nene as a close friend and not just someone she likes to mess up with. Yuzu's decision to become a teacher is pretty fitting to her character although is not really surprising but it does set some interesting possibilities for hypothetical future storylines. I'd love to see people reacting at Aihara Academy's chairman not only being married to a woman but her wife being a teacher in the academy.

Matsuri wants Harumin to address the kiss so bad, hopefully, this chapter's cliffhanger leads to the HaruMatsu situation progressing further.

Crap, Cool Down was too cool to die just like this.

And I guess that unless a new villain shows up, this is the end game.

Did this image only get uploaded here now? I'll have to start filling the image requests with Valkyrie drive pictures then.

@Random

I think we all are aware of the fact that ultimately, they're actors. But having the cover of the virtual persona gave them a degree of plausible deniability that let you think "what if is actually real?" Especially with the way Kiara always came off as being legitimately into Calli and girls in general, and even Calli's dere moments worked into it. All of this created a very unique scenario where you could see and interact with fictional characters in a way you rarely see.

But once that Kiara comes out and says that everything is just an act, well, then they're just another streamer for the pile and at least for me, I can no longer see their interactions with each other as anything but just another part of their job.

Oh and your suggestion of "Healthy cynicism" just comes off as being a party pooper that can't see anything without looking for things to smugly say "Is fake". And I think that is such an awful way of living.

As someone that got into Hololive precisely because of Takamori, I must say this is n extremely disappointing turn of events. I think most people saw it coming but I still had hoped for them to be able to work things out but it wasn't the case.

I can't blame Kiara for wanting to be more than just Calli's crazy love interest but the way she did it, well it wasn't the best. She took off the veil that kept Vtubers separate from regular streamers and I simply won't be able to see her and Calli in the same way. I wish them both all the best but whatever comes next is not something I'm interested in seeing, is just not the same, and I do not like the idea of seeing Kiara having new "canon" ships because I can't give them the benefit of the doubt anymore.

The upside is that breaking the link between the character and the performer means that I can keep enjoying Takamori fan works (for as long as keep doing them, at least) by taking them as if they were just another couple from a manga or an anime and ignore completely the existence of their RL counterparts.

This was an adorable chapter.

Yuzu really cranked up the gay in this chapter and is pretty heartwarming to see how much she loves Mei. That said, I don't think she was really wanting to fuck but rather she was just doing all the corny shit she undoubtedly picked up from an extremely fluffy shoujo manga.

I disagree with the idea that Mei is cold or uninterested towards Yuzu, it has been clear for a while now that she also adores Yuzu but she just doesn't know how to properly express it and her laser focus on living up to the Aihara's family name has left her completely lost when it comes to romance. But she's really trying to learn for Yuzu's sake.

Also, I love how Sub draws them looking older now.

Oh, and thank you so much Megumiaki for joining Chaosteam as the series' translator.

Calli may be the closest thing we have to a real yet wholesome tsundere.

It would be great if she toned down the act a little though, she comes off needlessly hard at times.
