Damn I love this series.. I've read some super sad things and never tear up but somehow I almost teared up with this chapter, maybe because I root for Hanaka so hard. This second round was to be expected, but I wasn't so sure how realistic the author was going with it. I really hope she can win though, maybe with desperation leg lock like the current champ.
She seems like one of those broken kinda of characters that doesn't have any real attachment to a person and can just switch from lover to lover. Might be going out with Hoshigawa out of pity, which is why she took the bow off similar to when she was crying at the shop. Hoshigawa will hopefully win her over later by sticking with her despite her flaws and not judging her off of a past incident, then bam yuri blossom.
I love this couple, their characters are such a good fit the way doujins portray them, would've thought otherwise. The slice of life vibe is nice too, no misunderstandings or drama, just a snippet of their lives.
Touko probably thinks she wants a one sided romance but Yuu is slowly going to develop feelings for her and force Touko to overcome her inner qualms. Also, if the text is in black and in quotes that means it wasn't actually said right?
I agree that it seemed a bit off at the start that Risa seemed so intent on seeing Yuuko a certain way but at least it ended well. She may be seemingly blaming Yuuko at the end but I think it's more a of a cutesy confusion kind of blame that accompanies so many of these love stories in manga. Plus adult life time skip always wins me over.
Really liked this one, ending made it such a cute reversal, especially Yuri's appearance (and that slight blush on the last page). Like Madarame said, moe is all about the gap. Hope artists start making more adult life yuri in general.
I love doujins that show the love live girls past the high school days, need more of these. Kinda looks like this one could be adult life. The art is amazing in this one, those sketchy lines and that panel of Nozomi, damn.
I think what's confusing people is when kotori asks umi how she feels about loving a childhood friend. Kotori is basically seeing if she has a chance with honoka, but then is taken aback by umi's answer. So basically kotori likes honoka, umi likes kotori, and honoka likes em both. Unless the doujins are connected then I'm confused too.
