Well. Chapter 10 went with full old fashioned, no-irony corn.
Oh I dunno about no-irony, GuGu's entry was hilarious. The team was losing badly and they were heatedly discussing how to revert the situation and then suddeny the gym door was slammed open with a BAM that made everybody jump... and anyone who is genre savvy would expect such a scene to announce the appearance of the hero of the story who has arrived late but is now going to win the game for the main characters... but it was just some random fangirl who then started jumping and cheering for her favorite player. It made me lmao so hard. XD
Author-san: "A pure love between a slightly unhealthy couple, what do you think?"
Me: Please proceed, full speed ahead.
The covers, especially the one in the first issue, fooled me so bad.
I thought I had it figured out: the red haired gyaru was the dangerous one, the "forbidden girl" who does non licet things and is a perfect delinquent, and she would snare the other girl into a taboo relationship.
I am realizing only now that the dangerous one is the other one, lmao.
@botmj I couldn't help but notice your Hitsugi Katsugi no Kuro avatar. I'd read that manga, but it was never licensed where I live (and buying the US version is too expensive for me) and I don't think it was ever scanlated.
NO WE'RE NOT GFS WE'RE NOT GAYS HAHA THE VERY IDEA WE'RE JUST FRIENDS!
I hate when this happens.
Show some guts and come out proud, geez.
To clarify, the term Nikaidou uses in ch93 is "tottemo nakayoshi na kankei" (ie. "friendly" as in "close", not explicitly "we're friends"). Basically, it hits the perfect middle ground of describing how close they are while still leaving it vague enough for Ranbara to misunderstand.
That makes sense. And Kageko being the adorable ball of shyness and dorkiness she is, she no doubt prefers to keep her relationships private (as in, it would be mega embarrassing for her to let people know she's dating someone) so she's grateful that Sakurako gave a nonspecific answer that doesn't tell any lie or falsehood but keeps the issue vague.
If groping the erogenous zones of a person who doesn't have the right or power to resist was enough to make them go frantic with desire for you, then every rape victim in the world would think of their rape experiences as the best sex of their lives.
Great, now how am I supposed to enjoy Arioto after reading this?
Thanks a lot dude.
