Uhm, I… can’t write comments as deep and detailed as those above, but I’m glad this kind of discussion is happening. X)

Now I’m seeing two possible developments for chapter 8:
1 − Akira suddenly becomes terrified and runs away, which Mayuki takes as a rejection of her feelings (and then goes to seek reassurance in Rin’s arms?)
2 − Akira apologizes to Mayuki for looking down on her and confesses that she has never kissed and is in love with Rin

I have to wonder what happened for Canno’s characters to get this… horny. AnoKiss’s girls (especially early AnoKiss) were ridiculously chaste by comparison. It might be Kawauchi’s infulence.

It would be funny if Akira was the one who now asked Mayuki to teach her about kissing to impress Rin…

I'm glad Akira figured out Mayuki's feelings for her so quickly.

I’m honestly surprised it took her this long to figure it out. It’s not like Mayuki was subtle about it. >.> Though Akira has a lot of fangirls (and boys) so she probably thought Mayuki was no different.

Anyway, I’m loving the composition in this chap. The scene at the distributor, especially − at first Akira doesn’t look at Mayuki at all, but then we have this brilliant two-panel shot of Mayuki walking past her as she realizes she’s not as "superior" as she thought.

Same with the three panels of Mayuki gradually taking the high ground during the kiss.

does anyone have a link where to buy the released volume 1 please? thanks very much

You have sites like E-Book Japan or Bookwalker.jp if you wanna read online. For physical import, there’s Ami-Ami, I think?

Hi! I'm a new fan. Anyone know how quick they translate this manga? I know chapter 7 it out in Japan, just curious because it looks so so good.

We translate within 2 or 3 weeks, usually.

Chapter 7 is already out in Japan!

Hello, food delivery, I got a humble pie for Ms. Akira.

That’s note entirely true. Chapter 3 did show that she had at least some consideration for Rin’s feelings, hence why she didn’t confess right away. It’s only now that said feelings are being directed at someone else that Akira’s thoughts start to become toxic. Before that she could tell herself that maybe their relationship would just evolve naturally with time and that she could safely confess then; she doesn’t have that luxury now, so she’s panicking.

…Okay, that "ghost Kon" theory seems weirdly plausible after rereading the whole thing. >.>

We got no chapter this month, but we got an official English title and a cover.

And the cover is false advertising if I’ve seen it. XD

Oh, and we got the cover for Mushoku to JK too.

Which I much prefer, I must say.

Well, her thoughts are bad, but what she says out loud is still reasonable enough. Until the last page. XD

As we all know, this ends up being the recipe for eons of Aaaaaangst.

Dunno, it could also be the recipe for some comedy. That was my first reaction when the last page hit, honestly − that came so out of left field I almost spit my drink in laughter (with Akira’s face making it funnier).

Also, someone here said that Akira only liked Rin because of her superficial "mature" appearance, but I don’t quite think that’s the case. Sure, she has that cool beauty vibe, but much like Mayuki, Rin also has that clumsy side to her, and I think that’s part of what attracts Akira (hence the "Thank you Rin, for sucking at sports!") The "gap moe", if you will. X)

It’ll certainly be interesting to see how Mayuki handles her own growing feelings for Rin in the meanwhile… I think that bed scene after the lesson is the first one where her thoughts were entirely about Rin, not Akira.

Oof, Akira's ego needs to be cut down to size which is ironic since between the 3 of them she is by far the least interesting or likeable.

Funny, before this chap I actually found her the most likeable of the three. Now she’s become less likeable, but also a lot more interesting.

edit: I've seen the expression "(going) on the offensive" in different stories here. What's the Japanese phrase it translates? 押せ押せ? 攻撃? 攻勢?

The last one! "Kakugo no kousei" (覚悟の攻勢)

And yeah, when you think about it, all three of them are being immature in their own ways − Rin by giving in to her attraction without considering the consequences, Mayuki by causing a messy situation because of her selfish motivation, and Akira through her poisonous superiority complex and entitlement. It’s interesting.

I like how we see Akira’s "dark side" in this chap in a way that’s… understandable. She has integrated that role of "cool girl that everyone loves", so it doesn’t make sense to her that Rin would find one of her fans more attractive than herself. As if one piece of the puzzle was suddenly out of place.

Also I love that look of "ugh, I don’t wanna do this shit" she gives at the end. XD

And interesting little detail, their argument takes place under the "tree of love" mentioned earlier…

Yup, she's definitely polished her craft in that department.

Speaking of the art, Canno did a livestreaming on Youtube recently! We don't see her, though. =(
Seems like the official abreviation for the series is "YasaKan", as I expected.

…Well, in my country the only schools with entrance exams are the elite schools for rich kids, and they're usually high schools or higher. It can also happen for some of the high-level university courses (like my translation masters). Outside of that kids go to whichever school is the closest to where they live −although derogations are possible− and they can enter any university they want as long as they've successfully graduated high school. So yeah, it's a bit different from Japan.

Then again, this is Japan, where they have entrance exams for freaking middle school. I wouldn't be surprised about anything.

That's not what I took away from it, I think what's more likely is that she appreciates how Mayuki is willing to keep Akira in her life even if Akira chooses someone else because she wants her to be happy.

Hm… I gues that's a valid take if we consider that Rin is tired of jealousy and selfishness ruining her relationships.

I also think Rin is getting slightly ahead of herself here… Mayuki only said "I don't mind if Akira acknowledges the existence of people other than me", but Rin's conclusion is "Oh yeah, she's totally poly!"

Touko: I French-kissed my kouhai when we weren't even dating yet!
Rin: Hold my saliva.

…Seriously though, I think Canno might have learned a thing or two from her pal Kawauchi there. That kiss was… whew.

Akira learned the truth a bit sooner than I expected indeed. Unless she somehow comes to the wrong conclusion but that would be pushing it. ò.Ô

And I must say I chuckled when Mayuki said "Why would she pay attention to me when there are girls like you around?" If only she knew. XD

…Welp, Nega's gonna Nega I guess. XD This is (relatively) more uplifting than most of her stories though. But still with that bittersweet touch.
