Love how you're all contemplating the realism of the parent and my first thought was the realism of where Sora is gonna go if they do stop her from moving away lmao
Despite how it may be unrealistic, I'm still kinda just along for the ride like woo! let's go!
I came into the comments JUST to say that I snorted at the "strip to my underwear" galaxy page.
Also, Mikoto wondering: "I wonder if I'm any closer to her now than I was back then" after she just stripped herself and Nekozaki was like "Can I touch you" yeah, yeah I would think you're a little closer now.
Mod edit: Untagged the huge image.

So, I'm pleasantly surprised that this ended the way it did. I feel like most mangas with these plot types/premises usually end in a heavily yuri subtext type ending. This one was actually blunt and straightforward near the end which was a very nice change.
Not gonna lie, for the first 170 chapters I thought the whole thing would just never address the love thing and it'd be like platonic love and they'd get married to some rando man that shows up for 2 chapters. Boy, am I glad I was wrong HAHA
Why did they change the line at the last part Please like me.
Would've been more sad
Oh wow, I completely missed this change. After checking things, the webnovel's translation and the Italian manga translation went with "Please like/love me". However, the official English light novel translation has it as "Do whatever you want".
The original webnovel has the line as 好きになさいな, so assuming it's the same in the manga (and judging by the Italian translation, it is) then "Please like/love me" is probably more accurate after all. I'm not sure why the official English light novel changed that so drastically, unless that was specifically changed in the Japanese light novel version as well.
好きになさいな in Japanese very clearly means "Do as you like/do what you want/suit yourself" etc. It definitely does not mean 'please like me' (I don't even know how you'd get that). I don't know why you would assume the amateur web novel translation is correct over the light novel translation.
I also read "Do as you please" when I read 好きになさいな. I'm wondering if people just see 好き and associate that with "like"? Or are people just throwing that into google translate?
I don’t think the girl would commit suicide (or even get into an accident)—I think it’s a literalization of the old, “If my crush rejects my confession now that I’ve gotten up the courage to confess, I’ll just DIE!” trope.
lmao that's what I got from it too. Like a literal heartbreak.
I'm wondering if Mei said something similar to what she said to Rinna about her trauma but more explicit about it, like how love never lasts or something which is why Sayo became afraid of it and settles for friendship because that's supposed to last "forever" /cynical
It does feel like the protagonist is knowingly hurting Sayo and I really don't know how I feel about that.
(still gonna read this though lmao)
Very curious as to why Rinna even likes Mei, the theory about the idol thing sounds really plausible.
