Guys! Nobody has talked to Kon before, besides Furuka. This is just a theory, but I think she might be a ghost or the monster herself. She says everyone in her school ignores her. In her house, none of her family members never addressed her and when her brother says "sis", he could be talking to the other woman who was coocking. It was never stated that she was his mother.
When that bully girl talked about "lazzing about with that thing over there" she could be talking about the abalones instead of Kon herself. This is just a theory, but I re-read the whole thing and it seems the only one who can see Kon is Furuka.
It's a really interesting theory, but I'm not entirely convinced... She has her own room, with a nameplate on it in Chapter 2, Page 2... In the next page, I can't really make out what's in her bookshelf, if it's just used as a storage area or if it's her actual things.
but yeah, the only living human person we see actually interacting with her, is Furuka.
Both Iwashita and Tsubasa, and Risa and Aya made it out together, so I'm good... those were the only couples I was really rooting for... and while the others might feel bittersweet, each person seems content.
Which IS the ideal... but it's quite often seen as a failure.
Do the parents just know from birth that the girl is gonna be a tomboy hunk and name her Touma?
How do you that "Touma" isn't unisex? Or that it's not the girl's family name?
Her name is Unabara Touma, apparently. (Chapter 3, Page 2: some of the girls say "I want Unabara to pat my head too~")
As for the first point, I do believe it is... I remember there was a girl named Touma in Minami-Ke as well).
is there like any context for this? or is this like a metal gear solid moment where its just dissociative disorder
In this future, there's this valuable mineral called Originium, which infect people with a disease... these girls have it, but thanks to it they can also fight. Lappland apparently has a lot more of it than most though, which makes her ... let's say psychologically unstable... the disease has a 100% mortality rate...
The last two pages probably depict a mercy-killing.
That Page 8, though... I was not prepared for that.
as for everything else... COMMUNICATE people, PLEASE! A relationship takes trust, communication and love/attraction. not talking actually messes up two thirds of it. Especially if it's about feelings of jealousy or shame about past relationships.
... Aaaand page 8 also makes another point clear... Sex is 5% of a good relationship, and 90% of a bad relationship.
