I see this as Mitsuki trying to be the bigger person by going “I know the two of you are not talking because of grudges so I want to create an opportunity for you to make amends since this is an issue that can be resolved by talking”.
The slightly self-deprecating part of giving the tickets SHE won and SHE was looking forward to as much as Aya might be seen as bad, but as we were previously informed, she goes to shows a lot, and her Uncle might even be able to fix her up with other tickets (he knows venue owners and other people in the business or just die hard fans of western music). She might have questioned if she actually needs it if it means her friend Aya will not be entirely happy unless she solves this issue with Chizuru.
Mao is chill. Mao might be the one to approach Aya actually, but then hopefully it will be “too late” and Koga’s plan already worked —in one way or another — and Chizuru will be the one to talk.
If Aya comes out with the truth and ends up telling her friend that her crush turned out to be Koga, still apologising but explaining that it isn’t a matter of friend x friend, instead love interest x friends (which doesn’t excuse her behaviour of leaving her pals hangin’), it could be progress and we might get wingwomen for Aya.
If not the ChizuMao duo, Mao is my bet for the one working with Naruto-kun to nudge the gays.
Kikuri looks great with the tomboy rocker look here! It's a fun idea for her younger days.
This is actually canon. The special chapter (61), available on MDex, is a flashback that shows the story Nijika mentioned in ep.8 about their mother’s death and Seika leaving her band to take care of Nijika and then founding Starry
*Note: Hiroi Kikuri is drunk lady, tomboy rocker guitarist is Ijichi Seika
I also think it's fairly safe to assume that rather than a full-on dream, Michi was projected into the real-life classroom, and actually talked to Aizawa.
EXTREMELY intrigued by this theory. I am supportive of this (also noting the fact that it was dark outside when they talked too)
Like other readers, I think there’re a Lot of mysteries yet to be solved so far. From the seemingly trivial question “who hid kasumi’s hair clip?” to the central theme “why is aizawa seemingly obssessive with michi?” to the grand finale “what is aizawa’s cause of death?”
I like the fact that the manga keeps it lighthearted despite all these questions.
1) Korotori Michi subconsciously hid Honda-san's hairpin. This was purposely done.
2) Honamin is obsessed with Michi because the latter is protecting her.
3) Honamin's death was faked by her family under extreme duress.
4) This manga has been lighthearted, but there is a major threat to Aizawa Honami's safety.
5) The class was just playing a prank with Aizawa all along. She just quit the idol group due to wanting to focus on her studies.
I ended up putting this on hold on Mangadex cause I wanted to wait for it to finish releasing to see how I felt about the whole thing, but I remember feeling kinda "meh" about what I read cause the Otaku guy kinda feels like a pointless character most of the time.
He kinda is. And maybe that’s the point. Black gal is clueless that white gal likes her back, white gal makes moves on her (imo) and black gal never gets it, Otaku just serves as a little push that white gal doesn’t really need — but maybe black gal does.
