Did this manga get axed? The ending feels kinda out of the blue and the previous chapters did not give the vibe that they were building towards a conclusion. Also Mochida got way too much focus to just end with a vague conclusion, Haruki doesn't feel like she got her character arc payoff either.

Now that I think, one thing I don't quite understand is how do anime characters not taste the difference between their smooth tea and bitter, hard taste of alcohol, that shit is NOT subtle even in mixed drinks, especially for people who never drink. Even if you're a lightweight, after the 1st sip you'd be like bruh. Not drink more until you pass out lol

I guess it may depend on the person. I used to have no real problem with the taste of alcohol myself until the one time I truly got drunk, after which it's been exactly as you described, I can feel the bitterness so strongly I hardly ever drink anymore. A lot of people I've talked to can't even understand what I mean by that bitter taste, though, thinking I just exaggerate.

I mean, not just tolerance with alcohol but just the fact that it tastes noticeably distinct from something you're expecting to taste. If you order water and they give you sparkling water, you'd notice immediately because of the carbonation and be like hey, this probably isn't my drink, not just keep drinking, oblivious and being like I guess water always felt this angry in my mouth. There isn't many drinks that can be confused with the distinct taste of alcohol that you unknowingly get drunk, especially not tea.

Tbh, I found the final volume to be under expectations for what is otherwise a good manga. Creepy bro is front and center for half the chapters and the time travel explanation honestly takes more away from the main couple instead of adding on to their relationship and enhancing the story. It's a shame they spend most of the last volume introducing and trying to flesh out creepy bro and a whole new character to explain the whole time travel plot while leaving Pure and Akira on the back burner and then just use the last chapter for a rushed cut to wedding day.

Still a decent read but I feels like it really botched the landing after a strong first two volumes.

Hoo boy, the content is great but the paneling can be a bit confusing to navigate. I think each individual panel is consistently right to left in dialogue but the order to read the panels isn't consistent from page to page.

Lol just reading this chapter, I knew it was not gonna be popular in comments. I still think it's so random that we had that Senpai arc which was a pretty typical yuri romance story sandwiched in-between... well, a more shameless ecchi manga situated in animeland where these nudity scenes aren't really thought of as that out of the ordinary or inane. Feels like this is the author's first yuri serialization or something and they just wanted to get all there story ideas published, even if it didn't particularly make sense to have them under one banner.

Can't wait for this new character to end up getting more character development and traits than Momo just like the others.

For Yukiko one-shot standards, this is actually one of her more wholesome works lol

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, DON'T END

This manga honestly snuck up on me. Watagiri Saya's previous works were honestly kinda boring so I had no expectations but this quickly became one of my favorite ongoing reads and I'm sad the manga's climax also signified the end. Regardless, this was a great read and much thanks to the scanalators for timely releases!

Soooo much dialogue. I gave up fully reading a lot of the panels, haha.

This was the obvious course the manga was going but a part of me is dissatisfied that Koiko's love for the president, the whole starting premise of this manga, was nothing more than an infatuation that she got over lol

I'm happy the polyamory stuff has been put away for now, hopefully forever.

I kinda don't know how to feel about this series right now. It feels like two completely different stories. On one hand, I quite like the easy going, teasing sol chapters we have been getting lately, but....it's not what it started out as and what I came here to read.

I do hope they go back to some sort of bullying dynamic. In the first few chapters, the bullying that actually happened wasn't really to my taste, but I kept reading on since it did seem to be improving and I was hoping for a "Hino no Baka" sort of bullying dynamic, but then it just straight up became another high school girls doing cute things sol.

While I like the 2 senpais and their relationship a lot, I feel like they were introduced way too early. I feel like we've seen those two get more development the bullied girl now.

I feel like I would have enjoyed this more if it just started out as just another sol so my expectations would be different but I dunno. Guess we'll just see where it goes.

Agree with this, the new characters really have brought a lot of their own stuff to the story that the original couple has felt left out and the original premise seems very much gone. Heck, Momo has basically been demoted to side character for almost all of the most recent few chapters. I like the dynamic of Nanase and Momo so I'm worried it'll be just random teases of their relationship now in between the SoL of the 4 characters, we'll have to see.

Did the tankoubon change some pages? I remember chapter 1 extending a bit longer past this scene but that might have been because it was originally a one-shot. Not that I can compare because mangadex is still dead rip

I hate how easily I fall out of mangaland nowadays lol. I'm just thinking when reading the first chapter that it's totally weird for siblings to be fulfilling each other's BDSM fetishes and how is the MC girl just completely unfazed by seeing that. Curse you real world logic.

In the author's defense, the axed ending caught me by surprise, what a twist! It's a shame too, I wasn't too hot to the premise at first but I was warming up to it as the chapters went by.

Should probably change this series to subtext/no tag so people don't read all 7 chapters expecting a relationship to eventually happen.

I still don't see the benefits of adding Joker to this manga.

Is the licensing only as digital? I was happy to hear this manga got licensed and I could start supporting it by buying volumes but being digital only would put a real damper on things.

The feel when you see some series you really like being updated with new chapters but you know full well that it's April 1st.

It's funny how long the official Akuma no riddle doujinshis lived past the original works. I definitely get the vibe that the author just drew all these character designs and couples first and then had to make up and draft some crummy story to use them because they needed a serialized work that was appealing to a wide audience of readers. It's clear to me that they heavily enjoy drawing character interactions more than an action packed, assassin betrayal story.

I'm not caught up on recent chapters yet but is anyone else getting vibes like that English woman character in Arrested Development? She was a grown adult but she was mentally challenged so she had the intelligence of a grade schooler and was in a class with a bunch of kids despite having the size and age of a full grown adult lol

This is such an unhealthy relationship.
