Congrats, Tsukushi. You just got yourself one heck of a girlfriend!

And, oh yeah, Hinoka, you found herself one too, I guess.

Why is Shamiko so shocked when Momo cuts off her ponytail? I mean, she can simply make it grow again like before.

I can't wait for the second season. I hope it'll happen soon.

Oh golly. It's the old "one of the girls doesn't know what love is" cliche. For crying out loud.

Dropped.

I'm kinda put off by the subtext tag as I often find subtext series incredibly frustrating, how is it in this case?

Frustration levels are over 9,000. The way the story ends makes absolutely no sense considering the emotional roller coaster that was presented up to that point.

The only story that made me more frustrated than this is perhaps Shiroi Suna no Aquatope.

Nobody compliments me on my ability to dress up like a shoebill.

I'll take her word for it.

I go to Mangadex. Someone is uploading the original language chapters of this story there. It also has a link to the original site for most of the stories there.

I only see the Korean version on Mangadex, but it looks like Tsukushi is being an idiot again, as usual.

Smooth, Hinoka. Smooth...

I love these manga and anime that are basically pamphlets for a certain region.

What's this "Transcendent Beauty" scrunched face thing? A new Japanese fad?

I thought there was a word joke in there somewhere, so I looked up the original Japanese version. Looks like the "transcendent beauty" thing appears nowhere in the original. Instead, the chapter is called "miyu (みゆ)", and the word "miyu" appears when she gets her face squished. That's.... cute, I guess?

Sure, Shizuku. Just cry all over that paper, smearing out the ink all over the place. If I were her I'd keep that letter in pristine condition for as long as I live. They'd be Kaori's last bits of handwriting after all.

Anyway, what a depressing story. Just what I needed in times like these.

Well, looks like someone really loves Okinawa and was looking for an excuse to draw locations from there. I simply have to visit the place now!

For crying out loud, girls. Wear protective gear while skateboarding!

Darn it, Kiki. Don't just stand there like a salt pillar. Go after her!

Also, Michiru, good for you to finally be open about how you feel. It's just too bad that the target of your affections is a bit of a dolt.

Wow, that's some ridiculously harsh criticism. Poor Suzu...

I don't care what you say, I'm still shipping Komichi and Hotaru.

Ellie got isekai'd by truck-kun and started to espouse the benefits of high heels in a fantasy world where people wear boring shoes.

Three million yen is a little over 20000 dollars, so it's really not THAT much.

Also, why the heck does this nonsense get introduced? Things were just about getting good.

Slow down.... I can't keep up with these lightning-fast releases!

What the, how they got a Clione on an aquarium?

There are quite a few aquariums that have cliones, especially in Japan, where cliones are very popular

Right, and if I recall correctly, the first time they met Fukami gave Yamada the “who tf is this?” eye.

I had totally forgotten about those moments amid all the weirdness that was surrounding them. Fukami clearly didn't realize Yamada was Kase's girlfriend though.

It doesn't help that Fukami has essentially been strung along by someone who she thought was single. If you see this from her perspective, she was just earnestly trying to get Kase's attention (in a socially awkward jock way, but still) and suddenly how she acts in this arc feels a lot less annoying.

I kind of agree. Fukami probably thought she had to hide her feelings because the one she loves is a girl, and she probably was afraid to come out, on top of fearing that she would ruin her relationship with Kase, superficial as it may have seemed. It must be devastating for her to find out that her crush was into girls the literal moment she is leaving.

It's unfortunate that this nice, important moment for both of their characters gets overshadowed by the poor writing. Frankly, if I were Fukami I would be piiiissed. Not at Kase, of course, she is perfect and amazing and can never do any wrong. Probably at Yamada though, she just has a very punchable face.

Does Fukami even know who Yamada is?

Well, glad that mess is over with. On to Kase's next screw-up!
