I have to point out this is canon. Not the doujin itself, but the title. Yoko Hikasa (Maria's VA) confirmed in a interview that Maria is interested in Tsubasa and is annoyed that the latter won't touch her.
I was about to to provide a link to the Refuge in Audacity page in Tv Tropes, but then I realized that would be silly. Refuge in Audacity is for shy people and introverts. The MC knows what being bold truly is about.
At this point, I no longer know if Senpai actually even still love the past MC, since she literally letting a stranger (they might know each other name, but that pretty much about it, and future MC has a fake name at that) do lewd things to her every single time they meet, but oh well, might as well read and see the ending if its indeed just a hentai series or actually has plot.
"STILL" loves? I would like to know why you think she ever did. This entire plot started because Senpai never reciprocated her feelings, even several years in the future.
I’m disappointed. As a LN reader, I was really looking forward for this chapter. But they didn’t adapt the best scene! You guys think Momo was just holding the manga in place in Page 4? Well, the manga may give you this impression, but as LN readers know, she was supposed to be whipping it around over and over, like what Hulk did with Loki.
Man, when I read this chapter in the LN, my first thought is that I needed to see it, not just read it. But the manga didn’t deliver it. I can only hope the anime will do better.
About the setting, there is actually one chapter later in the Web Novel where Rei herself acknowledges that the world she is living in right now is anachronistic. More specifically, there is a beach episode where everyone is using modern swinsuits. Rei notes in her internal monologue that this was an event in the game, and it really doesn't make any sense given the setting. But nobody wants to see period-appropriate beach clothes, so the devs put in the anachronic swinsuits instead. Not that she is complaining.
"Nice"? That's all you have to say? She is nothing less than gorgeous! Hot damn, there was no physical contact between two people this time, yet this chapter is managed to be hotter than anything we've got before. That's how sexy Senpai is.
I guess the story is building up this way to spice things up but I can’t help getting annoying by the mc, she’s getting in the way of her past self?? cucking herself instead of helping to get together with the senpai. If her future self gets together with the senpai and one day she just gets back to the future it would have been all for nothing.
We've already talked about this in this forum. This argument is based on the idea that she will get back to the future, but she has no reason to believe that will happen. There is no Time Machine involved here, she just went to the past one day after hitting her head. As far as she knows, she is stuck in the past forever. And in that case, NOT trying to get together with Senpai as she is now means giving up her last chance to be with her.
I think the "quota" argument has some merit. After all, every chapter has exactly one Ecchi scene in it. Not sure if it's the author own idea or if it came from the editor, but it does seem that someone made a rule about not writing a chapter without any fanservice in it.
Everyone is commenting that she should help her past self get together with Senpai, but you are forgetting something important: You guys are basing yourself on the idea that she will still come back to the future. But how is she going to do that? She has no idea how she time-traveled in first place, and no idea how to get back. As far as she knows, she is stuck in the past forever.
So really, for her it's her last chance to get together with her Senpai. If she helped her past self, she would be dooming herself to spend a second life watching the girl she loves getting together with another person. I find it very easy to understadn why she wouldn't do that.
So, everyone here is discussing Akari's Yandere Split-Personality, but did you notice that curious sentence that came out of her mouth? "Unlike that time in the train, I don't need to go back in time here".
Yeah, this girl is basically what Natsuki Subaru would be if he actually was OP. Except we are following Emilia's point-of-view.
I've seen some comments about wandering about the fast pacing and well...
Kannazuki no Miko only had two volumes, Kyoushirou to Towa no Sora had three, and Amnesian had four. Kaishaku simply doesn't seem interested in writing a long series.
