"harasho of sadness" got me.

Ok I thought about it, what was the point of her pretending to be the childhood friend and taking the real ones place if the girl doesn’t even remember her? There’s no leverage there then is there?

I suppose it would be awkward to explain (or hide) the fact that she knows so much about Miki. Pretending to be the childhood friends smooths it all out.

Can someone explain what the hell happened for my dumb self? I thought she killed her crush for a second, but they're both alive at the end?

The girl who was killed was Miki's actual childhood friend. The dark-haired girl straight up murdered her to take her place.

Man that was daaaark, but at the same time I still like it somehow... Murasakino's art really is to die for, and they have a way of getting under your skin with their writing.

Was this chapter just an excuse to tell everyone's birthdays and blood types? Then again they were all probably known already.

So are they married now?

Some of the dialogue in this sounds really unnatural, or maybe it is just the general wordiness? Oh and also where the heck is this buss headed and is it too late to get off?

Sent to hospital because of a 38 degree fever? Eh, I guess everyone is different but that does not sound that bad generally speaking.

Also Mahoro just phase shifted what

From what I understand, hospitals do a lot of routine care in Japan. Can't confirm for real though. On the other hand, around these parts if you're upper middle class and above (family income over 200 or 250k), you probably have taken your kids to the hospital for fevers. I swear, all my coworkers go to the doctor for everything!

Heh I see, well I suppose it varies from place to place as it does from person to person!

Progress is a lovely thing

Though I simply cannot overlook that Harumi was receptive about a threesome... twice.

She was receptive of gropesome at any rate.

So this is over then... Anyone know which chapter number it ended on?

64,translation is up to 61.

Heh well yeah, I just read 61 here so that part was obvious. But thanks, so just three more left huh. I suppose this never had that much of a narrative to feel rushed when it ends, but still kinda sad.

Here to reiterate once again how much I adore Subaru.

But also, Hinako has some nice friends.

I guess only in this place is "everyone happy with their lives and moving on" considered a bad end, heh. It is too bad this was axed though because the ending did indeed feel abrupt. There seems to be a lot of posts implying "things did not go the way I wanted, thus terrible writing", and it is great when you can get so emotionally invested into characters, but the author having different ideas than you did is certainly not some kind of a crime or a sin. I am not going to pretend I think this was the ideal ending of course, but eh, it did fit the feel of this series more or less.

Not sure why you would read that as jealousy or loneliness, even the recipe page seems to directly state that Sachi is both surprised but mostly proud how far Ayari has become. Well, I suppose these things are not entirely mutually exclusive.

It's the cheering guys meme I love this

Nozomi at the foreground was the obvious and correct choice, hehe.

I'm liking this one already. Honestly I think I have a weak spot for relationships like this one, between a bit of a genius airhead that's also kind and the composed one whose true self is only really seen by said airhead. I very much look forward to the rest of this story

That reminded me of Mouretsu Pirates somehow, heh.

A pretty good start. Obviously many of the elements here are very familiar and often used, but well tropes are not inherently bad (at least, not all off them) so I am hopeful this is a winner. I like the sound of story about magical tech and politics with incidental yuri.

In a word, this manga was fulfilling. Thank you for your hard work!

It's fun, but I can't help but be amused by how many Kyouko reaction shots there are.

Sakuma's style of online purchases is very similar to mine.

Huh interesting, so that is how it's going to be. Now I wonder if the prologue takes place in that moment just before...

Are we going to have a bath scene every chapter?

You know, manga like hidamari sketch and, I think, comic girls, made me used to that. I don't mind serials/ecchi-of-the-week. Bring it on.

Hah, I forgot that about Hidamari Sketch. It was kinda amusing to have each episode of the anime to end like that, but it was oddly wholesome instead of voyeurish. Especially for Shaft!

But when you have a work that, ostensibly, wants itself to be taken seriously, random out of nowhere service scenes are nothing else but a sort of bat signal for otaku to reassure them that "don't worry, this caters to you". It also gives the impression that your work is not good enough to stand on its own without appealing to such crowds.

What I'll say I feel this implies that girls can't appreciate fanservice, even in the genre concerning lesbian relationships. Pervy girls are out there too and authors like Ume-sensei or Pochi shows even the creators draw it because they like it in many cases.

Ah apologies, that was not an intended implication. And neither I am trying to tell anyone what to like or what to draw, this is simply my personal take on out of place fanservice (and not the kind in this manga for example) such as it typically happens in media.

What a strangely puritanical POV.

Heh. We are all here to read about a horny angel getting down and dirty with a high school girl, which makes that comment strangely amusing.

If you think it strange, that is your prerogative. It seems I am not alone with this opinion though.

I love how you put it! It's an interesting conversation to be had on how an author decides to situate their manga and appeal to their audience. I personally prefer more purposeful stuff, but I'm not here to critique lighthearted fun!
I enjoy the concept of this so far and I can't wait to see how it goes~

I think that is a good way to go about it. Let's hope this one remains entertaining!
