How the next chapter should begin

I mean it won't but man, that would be sweet

So yeah, I thought this was a really great chapter. It was a nice response chapter to the last one.
I feel like Kase finally learned something worthwhile and Yamada finally got the guts to introduce Kase as her girlfriend.
Pretty great all around.
Also, so Yamada is definitely a dryad now right? That's pretty tight

Back to trying to teach Meibot how to love
Or maybe Meibot has just been malfunctioning this whole time due to a virus known as "love sickness"

It's hilarious that people think I "dislike" the Mei character--I just want the vibrant, volatile Mei from the early volumes back. Sure, she was always emotionally repressed, but at first it was like a lid on a smoldering volcano.

Now she just seems lobotomized (or, as you say, malfunctioning.)

Yeah, she just acts vacant and distant now like she just got back from war

Or like...she's just a terminator now

Shouldn't the doll-like German loli who just wanted to do karate from one of the author's previous series have tipped you off?

Good lord. This whole time I had never made the connection with Sasameki Koto, despite having been amazingly fond of it back in the day. Realizing it's that mangaka feels weird.
I must say, rather clever of Ikeda Takashi to write something that neatly sidesteps her main weakness as a writer. That is, Sasameki Koto was fundamentally a manga with standard romance plot arcs, except she tended to kind of lose control and have them meander off into nothing much going on while people got impatient waiting for her to pick up the threads again. With "The Two of Them Are Pretty Much Like This" she has a total slice-of-life where the main pair are already an established couple with no major conflicts, so she doesn't have to try to maintain control of any plot arcs--there aren't any. She can concentrate on characters, art, and great little "bits".

Holy cow! PLG disappears for over two years then suddenly pops back in and starts posting again like nothings happened?? Missed you, man! Hope all is well. Welcome back!

Well, thanks. Doing fine. Recently celebrated 25th marriage anniversary. Just got my vaccination.
To be perfectly honest, I was mostly hanging at Mangadex, but it's currently toast, so . . .

Oh yeah! I was also surprised to see you back on here, got used to just seeing you on dex.

I always like how she would wear a baseball cap while directing like a young Steven Spielberg

Hima walks that line from being adorbs and innocent to being just really stupid

I think she steps over the line hard in this chapter

I'm glad that the author agrees that every story should end with an explosion

Was there a specific time where the art style kinda changed or was it just pretty gradual

I know its really really stupid to complain about this in a manga where women have sex and another masturbates to them, but all the panty shots at the beginning were weirdly distracting? I wonder why I notice that so much.

Clearly made by a dude though lol

Oh dude I noticed that same thing and it was bugging me
There's always something just a little perverse about those panty shots

This is like something that's written by a perverted algorithm

So the secret to weight loss is being depressed and obsessed with something while neglecting everything else
Good to know.

Damn this is a great series
It just feels so fucking authentic
I'd say yeah it is one of the best mangas out there

What I love about it is that it lets these characters just exist they're not walking billboards or scolds for any particular issue they are just being who they are.

You know this series is a lot similar to Shimanami Tasogare now that I think about it
