Ch 51 Assuming the third party has malicious intent, this raises 2 questions for me.
1. What do they want to achieve from this?
2. What does Kanoko think she'll gain from this?
I mean, as much dread as I felt when I reached the last pages, I'm really curious to know what Kanano think she's doing. If she wants the sympathetic Sumika-san back to listen to her unrequited love woes, it doesn't make sense to think that "ending" her hate of romance by dating her would achieve that if you ask me.
anyone else getting serious psychological horror vibes coming off chapters 18 and 19? like... you felt that right??
yeah ch18 reminds me of those movies where fmc follows her gut (or accidentally) checks out the phone of her husband and finds out theyre the killer/stalker, and instead of managing to hide and getting away with it like Aya did, the culprit would then show up right behind them like what are you doing?
Hmmm so if im reading this right, she keeps trying to think about other guys bc she’s scared of how much she’s into the blonde girl
Meanwhile also frustrated that the blonde girl is unfazed and unconvinced by her attempts, and very much aware about how much mc is into her
Sounds like she’s not used to being so invested in a single person and trying to shoot herself in the foot/trying to hide it, but blonde girl’s sneaky enough to keep creating opportunities and pulling her in
Tokiko being childish and petty with Natsuki when they were younger is pretty nice. We never see Tokiko bothered by anything and seems to let others treat her however they want. It's fun to see how she acted with Natsuki back then
Also rip Nee-san :( she seemed like she was under so much pressure and responsibility to keep everything together. Seeing that Tokiko isn't bothered by losing everyone else, she likely concluded that she'd be okay without her, hence the little parting speech. That bummed me out ngl, and I dreaded that her death would be coming bc for once, Tokiko was looking forward to something. It's not expressed that way but relatively speaking, Tokiko cared about/liked Nee-san a great deal more than everyone else (excluding the father, she seems to respect him)
Fuji is down bad! I wonder why it was so important that Kishiya thought she was a first year instead of a second year? Like it's only one year difference right it doesn't have any greater meaning in Japan or something?
it's probably not so much important to her as much as she is just surprised because Fuji looks so much like a first year high schooler who has yet to get comfortable in her new uniform that looks slightly too big on her. It's like she just genuinely does not look like someone who isn't new to high school.
I thought it was bc her uniform was perfectly worn and still follows school rules.
In my first year, we'd wear our uniforms well, but as we got older we started undoing buttons and rolling up our skirts for example, getting more and more lax with the regulations
Given that we're talking about jp metal stuff, here's a dump of lesser known metal bands from jp i found over the years:
, Galneryus, Imperial Circus Dead Decadence, 5150, Denkare, Yousei Teikoku, Powerless/MuryokuP, UtsuP, Nocturnal Bloodlust, Matutinum Miserabilis, UI-70, まぐなむお～ぱす, Onmyo-za, Pearls Before Swine, Pizuya's Cell, Dragon Guardian, Yakui the Maid, Takamachi Walk, IRON ATTACK!, UNDEAD CORPORATION, i-chan, Unlucky Morpheus, Piece Of Rain, Vanitas Vanitatum, Caz, Diabolic Phantasma, Hone Your Sense, S.S.H
I tried to only put metal bands here, but some non-metal ones might have slipped by, also most of those are really hard to find. there are some pretty known ones tho. Some vocaloid stuff, some touhou stuff, some dead bands, sorted in no particular order, but most have at least something interesting to listen to.

There's also Unlucky Morpheus, Aldious, and LOVEBITES which are all great bands I never seem to see mentioned in conversations like this. [...]
Idk anything about this topic but just thought I'd point it out, might make you feel glad to see two of the bands you like have received recognition from earlier posts :)
I wonder if the reason Fumi left is because of these twopages. How Yayo doesn't need to think about her future, bc all she needs is Fumi-chan.
I don't really understand much else of Fumi-chan, there's a lot that's intentionally left out. All I know is that she wanted Yayo to try again, that she buried everything that represents herself and disappeared, which eventually got Yayo to work towards her dream again.
I can't help but feel super sad though, it's like Fumi gave up herself and music entirely, and passed it on to Yayo.
My last question would be, was all of this done for the sake of helping Yayo move forward, or did something happen and it was just how Fumi wished to say her goodbyes.
I can't believe Sei left town, Aya assumed where she went and also left town, and then they coincidentally ran into each other. I guess Aya took the same train but holy–
I guess Sei looks all pleased when she saw those msgs bc she realised Aya got on the same train, and wow thank god. How awkward it'd be if it was the wrong guess
Aside from the final page, I don't really remember/can't really tell what seems to be different from the previous release, can someone enlighten me? I'm kinda too tired to think, is the punchline that this Mari doesn't remember the talk they had before bed?
I thought Nacchan loved Kyouko and would've wanted to go out with her, but I guess there was stuff holding her back
It's not said as explicitly as in many others, but it's the usual stuff, isn't it? Societal pressure to create a "family unit", having stable employment, etc. She missed because she was scared, and later, she hit also because she was scared/already committed to this path and didn't want to feel like sacrificing Kyouko was meaningless.
At the end of chapter 1, she's all smiles and happiness until she is reminded of Kyouko by the gifts and immediately loses it.
hmhm, that's neat, I haven't thought about that. Forgot about all those little remarks and comments in the beginning that ppl around her made too, that set the scene.
Also like dang, wtv genuine level of affection she feels for the boyfriend/fiancé, her insecurity and envy trumps it so hard, to the extent that she gave away the lipstick too (we didn't actually see Nacchan give it away but I can't imagine that Kyouko would just take it).
What if the things she wanted to buy for herself are actually the ones she would buy with Kyouko in mind? But subconsciously? She just doesn't want to admit it. This stuff happens when you put someone on a pedestal and your insecurity reigns. Still, it seems their relationship was never official, pretty vague. Anyway, am staying here for the drama
I think it really seemed for herself, bc of how each gift happened so coincidentally (she didn't just hand them to her iirc, she made Kyouko try them on or held them up to her and stuff). She didn't know if they suited her or not before she tried them either (apparently she just buys shit without checking first, idgi but she calls them impulse purchases), and she didn't know they would suit Kyouko either until she made her try.
The last gift especially, the lipstick is the best example bc she wasn't even the one to pick it out this time. I think the last gift was also the one that hurt the most (besides being the straw that broke the camel's back), bc not only did the bf pick it, not only did she actually think it looked great this time, but because Kyouko reached out and "took" it for herself, when she tried it on. It wasn't intentional on Kyouko's part (i think), but it happened to fit Nacchan's perception of "you take everything that is mine, I have nothing".
Unless I missed something (like how Kyouko feeling lonely and neglected for a while might've have contributed to it, that maybe she wanted to connect to Nacchan again), I think that was probably a coincidence, that this time she took one of Nacchan's items and tried it on without Nacchan being the one to offer it. Not intentionally but Nacchan probs wouldn't have brought it out for once either, bc it's something she thought actually suited her, something she wanted to keep for herself, something she wasn't complaining about.
I thought Nacchan loved Kyouko and would've wanted to go out with her, but I guess there was stuff holding her back, that she never properly dealt with and just bitterly laughed everything off. I didn't expect that ending though, that despite missing on purpose, despite never missing, that she regrets how things turned out.
Nacchan sounds like she's still conflicted and haven't moved on from that, I don't feel like she's truly happy atm
