It is truly impressive how well this manga mixes moments of profound depth and then lapses back to humor. It keeps the mood just right.

Not only did Kase and Yui finally get to spend some alone time together on this vacation (for Yui... work/club event for Kase), but in a few short sentences, with the only real question Yui brought up being the one about working at a store back in their home town, Kase managed to clear up all of the misunderstandings from overheard conversations and lingering jealousy about her roommate knowing things about her girlfriend that she doesn't.

I'd be willing to bet that Kase mentioned the possibility of working at the store in their home town with the thought in mind that Yui might want to live near her parents, but, since they're still keeping their relationship on the down-low, she didn't want to say, 'but I'd be happy to live anywhere that my girlfriend wants to move." And now that Yui knows that the REAL reason she uses that sunscreen is that it reminds her of the smell of Yui's hair, she knows that Kase's roommate might know what brand Kase likes, but has no idea why she likes it.

I still think that the roommate is going to be a complication somewhere along the line, though not as an ACTUAL romantic rival. I think she'll make a move on Kase at some point.

Hm, not okay because of the niece/auntie thingum ...

That is about as far as you can get from incest and have it count in some countries. Lots of places it doesn't count at all- its super tame compared to most of the incest tagged stuff on the site. A quick check shows me in the UK it is not a crime as long as they are 18+ but you can NOT marry them. Check what it is where you are- I wouldnt be surprised if it wasnt even illegal.

Ofcourse that doesn't mean you have to think its ok.. but thats a personal thing- not a blanket statement.

So.... A diddle with the cousins is fine in the UK?...... huh, go figure, explains the whole genetically crooked teeth bit I guess

In the USA, TWENTY (20) states allow marriage between first cousins. Only NINE (9) states prohibit "sexual relations or cohabitation". So, in the majority of the US, a diddle with the cousins is fine... Don't assume you're on morally superior ground unless you know what the laws of the land actually are. Just because US culture looks upon relationships between first cousins as being squicky and strange, doesn't mean that they are legally prohibited. From what I can tell, almost NONE of the states prohibit marriage beyond the first cousin level of relationship. (ALL of them prohibit relations between aunts and uncles and nieces and nephews, though many states have removed criminal penalties for all but acts against children, which is precisely as it should be. They won't give a marriage license to a couple that is too closely related, but they aren't going to bust into their bedroom and tell them to "Stop schtupping your aunt!")

[Plan to go to The Sky Tree next time the "hang out", a prototypical date spot, at least in manga... Not being FROM Tokyo, I can't say if young couples actually go there on dates or not...]
After that, they'll plan to go to Tokyo Disney I suppose?

the chapters are so short ;_; i can't tell if this is going to be a wicked slow burn or a rushed relationship

A slow burn would be dangerous for one of them, wouldn't it?

If you have read the Spanish translation, you should know that Momo has already admitted to Yuzu that her feelings for her are more than friendly. And that she asked Yuzu for a little more time before deciding if she will go out with her or not.

What? Yuzu needs time to answer? Didn't she confess her feelings to Momo and also kissed Momo in the first chapter? Did you get the name mixed up? Or am I not reading this right?

Momo asked Yuzu to wait a little. I thought it was pretty clear...

I thought the post was clear that it was Momo asking Yuzo for more time before deciding whether to commit to a relationship... beyond a foodie relationship that is...

My question is: Is there really anything wrong with food polyamory? They all love food. They all love each other. Why can't they all just be together in one big happy food orgy?

Ahhhhh, hell. I don't like Akira that much. She is so selfish. I want Rin ans Mayuki to be together in the end. Tsk.

Well... you know... in a poly ending they would be together... and that's what the story is clearly heading for from the beginning.

Akira starts to understand that she wasn't really thinking about Rin's feelings and only about her own, while Miyuki started out doing the same, but then learned more about Rin's past and empathized with her, feeling genuinely bad about selfishly asking her to teach her to kiss, though, by that time, Rin was wanting to continue the lessons herself, whether Miyuki realized that or not.

I'm curious to find out what Rin's take on things will be when she finds out that the girl Miyuki was pining for all along was actually Akira and that Akira was really trying to stop the "kissing lessons" because she has unrequited feelings for Rin. Will she feel betrayed by Akira? Will she feel like Miyuki should have told her about Akira when she brought up her name? I'm actually really surprised that Rin hasn't put two and two together based on the fact that Akira is a star of the basketball team and Miyuki plays basketball as well and it was a senpai on her basketball team that she was in love with. (I'm pretty sure she mentioned that part... and that they were going to be playing basket ball on their "date" earlier in the manga when Rin helped her pick out clothes for the non-sports part of the date and then came to tutor her and found her in her room crying in her underwear...)

I suppose there are other first-year basketball players that went to Miyuki's school and are going to Rin and Akira's school, but Akira is the obvious choice. I suppose Rin doesn't pay that much attention to sports?

In any case, I loved the way the end of this chapter unfolded, with Akira's first "lesson" with Miyuki turning into a serious kissing lesson for Akira instead. Based on what we've seen in the manga so far, I would guess that this might have actually been Akira's first kiss and she was completely BSing about her having any ability to teach anyone about kissing, just like Rin was at the beginning. Miyuki and Rin have learned together quite well and Miyuki has extra motivation. I'm glad that Akira didn't take forever to figure out that she is the one who Miyuki was trying to become more mature to impress.

Well, even if Shiho stops ghosting her, that doesn't change the fact that she's not going to be living anywhere near where Miwa lives. Miwa should at least tell Shiho that she's in a relationship so she doesn't try something thinking that Miwa is available and end up causing Miwa all kinds of angst because she was kissed by another girl, of course, would have to tell Saeko about it because the guilt would eat away at her. That would also make it very clear to Shiho what Miwa's feelings were back in high school... or at least it should...

Miwa: "I guess I need to tell you... I am in a relationship right now."
Shiho: "But you said you don't have a boyfriend?"
Miwa: "Yeah... I don't have a boyfriend... but I am dating someone... in a committed relationship... I am someone's girlfriend..."
Shiho: "OH... Then you have a ... Oh...." [Man... I really messed up back in high school, didn't I!]

Impressive and also a very forward-thinking publisher. Good job promoting your creators in a modern way!

I never knew this is what I needed, until I knew I needed it.

I know what you mean!

So we don't see the painting?

That is common. You also read stories about poets where you never read their poetry. The artist/author doesn't want to take the risk of hyping the art of the protagonist in the story and then presenting their own art and having people feel disappointed in what they saw/read. It's one of those self-preservation things creators do to prevent looking back at their work and cringing. (The way Billy Joel does about the song "C'était Toi (You Were the One)", about which he has given aspiring songwriters the advice to never write a song in a language you don't speak.)

Certainly no implications about the upper arm feeling the same as a woman's breasts there... nope, none at all!

Author released bikini gallery:

Fantastic gallery! I find it very odd that the Debating Club and Mahi-Mahi are the only ones that got group pictures. I'm glad that Nononon and Yumimi got their own individual ones, even if they were the same ones that were in the group pose. But I would have thought that, at least, the two canon couples (Mio/Shizuka - regardless of how rocky the relationship has been, and Ai/Chi - recent chapters have suggested long term commitment... discussions about becoming a wife, etc...) would have gotten posed together. Especially since the haircut for Shizuka suggests these were done VERY recently. (Unless that suggests something about the Mio/Shizuka relationship that we don't know yet... but they're both giving heart hands, so I'm hoping that is a sign that all is good...)

Strangely I think that weird car that was waiting was probably Shiho's adult lover...

And with this development, the storyline is actually improved quite a bit. The toxic aspect of the relationship between Liz and her ex is highlighted more, making much of Liz's behavior more understandable, while still not really acceptable, and opens a path for her to push past the manipulation and decide what she really wants.

So with how that was framed, is Heidi trans or is she a crossdresser?

That was my first thought when she appeared on the panels.

I'm pretty sure that we've already seen Koguma's reaction to Hino's bread experimentation at the end of chapter 59. If I had to guess, chapter 59 followed Hino's thought process after the "incident" and chapter 60 followed Koguma's.

"All kinds of things are in the process of changing. Even gender isn't restricted to being just male and female."
That was one of the most important statements ever made in manga, at least for the current state of things in Japan, rivaling the speech made by Kazama's brother at his wedding in at the end of Sasameki Koto. This manga was basically loaded with realistic storylines.

Why does she have scars?

She has those scars in the manga. I don't think it's been revealed how she got them though.

Other than the fact that it reaks of Class-S (You can do what you want with me until we're done with high school) this looks great!
