It would be nice if there's a chapter where Kasumi and Sakurako talk about their relationship, in a serious way. Like, it's fine even if they don't end up labeling their relationship as girlfriends and just continue with the comfortable "as long as we're together forever" kind of relationship. But with all the people around them getting together as girlfriends and those people assuming them as girlfriends already (which is surprisingly not, which make me surprised as well when Sakurako said it), I just hope they will have the "serious talk" soon.
This somehow looked familiar… Turns out this release took the translation from Danbooru from six years ago.
I hope it's not a problem
It’s generally good courtesy to credit the translators when you’re taking another group’s translation. In the case of Danbooru, multiple users might’ve contributed, some more, some less. I’ve seen “Translation: the Danbooru fairies” on a few credit pages before. In this case, the editor obviously had no courtesy, but I’ve never seen anyone on Danbooru complain about not being credited, so don’t worry too much.
Edit by kittey: Editor did give credit, just not here.
Pitting two of my favorite character types – the introvert and the childhood friend – against each other end one of them will probably end up hurt; love triangles are cruel. :< I hope it gets resolved before the end end we don’t get an unsatisfying open end (or a Nice Boat end).
Middle school friend said: You’re just as cruel for letting me confess to someone like that, Mei!
Wow. Talk about blame-passing. That’s beyond unreasonable even for middle schooler standards.
the idea of the first time having to involve blood is just an excuse for straight people to normalize pain during sex.
Less an excuse to normalize pain during sex and more a result of shitty sex ed that doesn’t explain things properly or actually intentionally mentions pain to scare teens away from having sex (hint: it’s not very effective). It’s crazy how many people believe that if you give teens comprehensive sex ed, they will immediately start going at it like rabbits, even though research shows exactly the opposite: teens that received proper sex ed have their first time later than teens that received lacking or no sex ed. Who would’ve thought that giving someone more information leads to better decision-making… /rant
When all these new chapters came out, I only read chapter 7 again and with lots of focus on Nagi and Yuuka in the new chapters, I somehow totally thought that they were the alpha couple and Tsubaki and Hiyori were the beta couple, so when the kiss happened, I thought it was the usual case of the beta couple’s relationship progressing faster than the alpha couple’s… and then I checked the first chapter and realized that Tsubaki and Hiyori were supposed to be the main characters. Alpha couple gets to kiss first? How can you betray my expectations like that, author-san? But we’re getting more yuri than the expected subtext, so it’s all good. :D
how can she not tell from her voice tho.
Like it's a manga, so I can suspend my disbelief to an extent but,,,, It would literally be a dead give away.
There are people who sound like they could be either gender. You could also say that since Ookuma believes Kanda to be a guy she subconsciously hears her voice as being more masculine than it may actually be.
Yep, pretty much that. During a vacation with friends, we met a bunch of drunk middle-aged ladies on a train and for some reason that I can’t remember, they tried to guess one of my friend’s age. They were split between “he’s about 18” and “he’s about 24”. You should’ve seen their faces when my friend told them that she was 33. She doesn’t even have a deep voice or anything and doesn’t try to pass as a guy either, but just because she looks and dresses very tomboyishly, the drunkards were convinced she’s a guy and didn’t question that even though all of us were laughing our asses off during the whole happening.
(I also read the new chapter elsewhere.) That hug was so cute with Himari leaning into it like that on page 39. That scene was already great by itself, so I’m glad that their first kiss was saved for another time that will without doubt be just as wholesome.
Looks like this series will continue for a while and I hope we’ll get to see more of these two lovebirds, no matter what might be going on around them.
“Idiot couple” is the usual translation for bakappuru, but this tag’s description doesn’t match the common use for bakappuru at all. An idiot couple is a couple that flaunts their lovey-doveyness to the annoyance of anyone around them. It doesn’t mean two stupid characters or Useless Lesbians. :<
