... well the way the story is laid out, they did not kiss - getting reprimended for earrings happened after the "incident" (or at least that's what "I saw it" implies), so since she didn't overlook the earrings, then the kiss didn't happen :P

No, the kiss and the bargaining takes place after she gets reprimanded. Saying "I saw it" only implies that the narrator is speaking at a later time. Most fiction is written in the past tense. She gets her earrings back after school because the public morals officer had confiscated them until then. There is no flashback, the story is linear.

I honestly think this manga need to get chopped. Once Sora's mom made a deal with her and left for Hokkaido, there is no plot or story that makes the manga moves. So one of course will look at secondary characters being developed. Wakana and Yuina simply are not convincing. Also this happens shortly after Wakana run into her crush. This is totally not realistic the way that arc goes. Then how come Yuina would going out with Wakana supposedly because Wakana and her crush did not work out as it is actually a one sided love by Wakata. For one thing her crush can be heterosexual so the entire arc becomes useless. Yuina and Wakana should have been dating quite earlier. Now it looks like the mangaka does not know what to do, so everything including the kitchen sink are thrown into the story, but unfortunately it does not work,. However I think it is the mangaka's "fault". Whatever happened to Egawa? We never have seen her since the cultural festival.

So who is really the lonely girl? Sora or Wakana or someone else?

Are you joking? Obviously Sora was originally the lonely girl. And I have no idea why you think Yuina/Wakana doesn't work, for my part I think it works well and it's pretty cute, though it needs to be developed more. Not having drama every chapter doesn't mean the author ran out of ideas, there's always a bit of fluff and other characters that can be explored.

These two are so damn twisted. They deserve each other really.

I mean Shimamoto (the light haired one) didn't really do anything wrong.

Having surgery to change your life is normal, and while choosing to model your face after a classmate is a bit creepy, she was just trying to improve her life.

While having surgery by itself is normal, it's clear that it was done out of an unnatural obsession with another person.
While not necessarily immoral, it seems like a very destructive and unhealthy choice to make. I don't think "did nothing wrong" is the right way to put it.

All in all it was an interesting story, even if yuri wasn't the main focus.

This series is amazing. The main couple was very engaging and had a unique dynamic, i like how bullying and cliques were handled in this series as well. My tiny complaint is that they could have expanded on Maho and Miki's stories a little more. I would have liked to see maho try to win miki over, maybe she could learn some tips from the other girls, or at least give some closure for maho, since she clearly has a thing for miki and she had a cool moment where she said she'd never change. Anyways this work is super high quality, lovely stuff.

It's so frustrating. Just one kiss, please, then I can die without regrets

Rereading this manga for old time's sake, since i first bought them over five years ago, it holds up and almost brought me to tears. Possibly the greatest yuri manga of all time for me

Remains a classic, this one. The loneliness is described so accurately and painfully

Loved this series, and had a pretty satisfying ending. Overall a really cute yuri manga, definitely recommended!

This story had so much potential and delicious angst in the first few chapters but got bogged down in the side story and it felt like the author didn't know what to do with the characters...
The ending was hot garbage too

Agreed Bugdevil. Such a shame the manga ended when they were getting close. I wanted them to at least have a good kiss, meanwhile Haruka and Yuu had like 500

I love this kind of oneshot!!

Same here, the melancholy atmosphere is something I just can't get enough of!
For me the slightly sad tone gives the story a more relatable and more beautiful feeling.

I’m reasonably certain it’s a reference to something.

If that whole thing was just a clever reference and I got a little upset over nothing then I apologize.

"Kill all hu-mans" is sounding more sensible by the day.

Why hu-mans with the hyphen?

Also how does "killing all X" ever sound even remotely sensible?
I get that it isn't serious but the fact that just because a person's opinion is invalid or toxic in your eyes you would wish death upon them makes you just as toxic, if not more.

Take a joke people...
Calling someone a fagget is just a joke, not serious. And if you don't like it then ignore it. No one's forcing you to look at the credits page.
Pay attention to the cute yuri instead.
I look forward to more of this adorable series!

Is Hakamada Mera a guy or a girl?
I'm assuming a girl but it would be cool to know if there are any yuri mangaka that are guys.

Sad that this ended without a real romantic realization...
Does anybody know if the author will ever follow this up?

Good art, but having sex in the spur of the moment to replace someone else is a really bad foundation for a good relationship. That put a sour taste in my mouth, as it seems that sensei was taking advantage of the MC's grief.
