I was with the MC and her awkwardness until she was just utterly dismissive of Hwayeon. I get that Hwayeon is gonna be portrayed as the villain here and I actually prefer biker girl but if a friend tells you they were beat up by someone, you can't just immediately side with the other person. At the very least, don't say it to their face with 100% certainty that the other side is right. Maybe if it was later on and we've established that Hwayeon is a chronic liar or something but I dunno. Even though I don't like yandere jealous girls (anymore), I'm on Hwayeon's side for now.
I keep forgetting the chapters end abruptly because I initially binged this and it flows smoothly that way. Everytime a new chapter is released, I feel a little bad for getting too excited to keep reading. Not really complaining bout the length, just sharing my lack of foresight.
Who sent her the msg? I can't keep up with all the super spaced updates.
The kanji on top of the message says Kurokawa I think. But my Japanese is virtually nonexistent so I might be wrong.
Also, I’ve got to admit, Maho does bring up some legitimate points. She’s way off the mark when it come to Kurokawa and has all the tact of a baseball bat, but her reasoning pertaining to Miki does hold some weight. It’d definitely be off-putting to suddenly have a friend you’ve known for awhile turn around and have a seemingly total shift in personality, even if your behavior was technically in the wrong.
I especially like how she makes it a point that Miki was just copying Fujishiro. Based on the previous chapters, we know Miki sees Fujishiro almost like Kurokawa does so the abrupt change makes it difficult for her to realize what she and her idol were doing is wrong.
"Privyet, comrade," said Satou-san, as she sauntered into the factory and laid her tools down beside me. Her uniform was a slimmer fit than my budget for rations and her lips (and political affiliations) were redder than the leftover borscht in my fridge. Though she'd transferred in from a shabby rural town, she had the distant, beautiful air of a Tsarina, and her smile was enough to warm us all against the relentless winter. She had more curves than the all the sickles I'd grown up using, and eyes that gleamed with life throughout our designated work hours. Three hours into our first shift, I already knew that I wished to enter a domestic union with her and contribute more citizens to the Socialist Sapphic State of Lesbos.
The thing about insecurity is the hardest person to approach constructively is the person you're insecure about. I think Kayoko knows she needs to talk to Kaori but her thoughts are probably a bit of a mess when it comes to the topic so it's actually good that she's trying to figure it out first with a friend. I think Kayoko trusts Kaori but her self esteem has always been wobbly so this is just her facing the repercussions of not building up her self esteem. The friend probably knows this too so what she's doing now is a good way to get things going so Kayoko doesn't eventually self destruct. And if she has other intentions, I see no foul. Mostly it's coz I feel the MCs are pretty solid all things considered.
