I wonder if this will be complex later even though this chapter is so simple and straightforward. Why did the Aunt meet her niece so late? It also looks like it was the dad who introduced the niece to her.
I also like the fact that Masumi’s issue with dating each other is that they are both girls and age gap and not that they’re related.
And beyond that you dont KNOW she is even meant to be a minor. It never says her age. She might be 18,
and even if she is not, the age of consent in Japan can be lower than 18 outside tokyo prefecture depending on circumstances- so dont jump so quickly to claiming its against the law, just beause it might or might not be in YOUR country.
In the uk where I live for example the age of consent is 16- and she is most likely 16+ as a high school girl, so there seems nothing wrong with it from MY perspective. I certainly wouldnt want americans visiting the uk to be claiming anyone sleeping with a 16 or 17 yr old high school girl was commiting statutory rape of a minor...
And Im especially ok with this senario because the girl was the one pushing for it so much- its not like the adult pushed HER into it.
I read that the age of consent in Japan is 13 years old. But I believe the popular area like Tokyo is 18 years old.
