I didn't realize I felt this way, but I wish this wasn't a 4koma. I feel like it constrains the storytelling in a way that weakens the imagery. In this chapter alone there were multiple instances where the girls felt like they were trying to break out of the format lol.
SUCH a good chapter overall though. I loved it!! I hope the anime brings in more readers because I truly love this manga
The author did a really good job of establishing their romance/chemistry before they got together. Big emphasis on liking the other's personality regardless of appearance. Maybe I'd like het couples in media more if they actually took the time to build a foundation like this, rather than assuming the audience will buy into a relationship because they're both conventionally attractive
I was already planning on buying the doujin, but thanks so so much for providing an English translation!! They really are in love and married. Love how post time skip Miorine is much more open and affectionate. Also appreciate the note that Eri was not present. Not the biggest fan of Eri being their accidental witness.
It's always a delight seeing someone go into detail about something they're interested in. You can feel their enthusiasm, such as the cooking segment in this doujin, or the comments above mine. Cute points all around lol
I always find fan stories of any kind where Chisato is clingy and/or easily starved for attention a bit ooc.
Still, cute story, and I do hope we'll get another one, as foreshadowed in the ending here.
I see it as Chisato, after realizing she gets to live, deciding what she wants is Takina and not holding back. She's always been a do what she wants kind of girl, and she's become truly honest about it. I think what restraint we did see in the show was the fact that she wanted the people she cared about to be okay without her when she was gone. It's obviously just one way to interpret the character, so if that's not how you see it that's okay.
Out of the bunch from this author, this one is my favorite. Writing and comedy feels true to canon. One tiny moment I loved was Chisato whining about being unwanted and Mika saying "you're wanted here. Do your job"
I love how all the girls doted on Hikari. Mahiru isn't jealous because she's in big sister mode. Claudine cheering because her bed is Hikari's favorite. Karen holding her non-stop. Hikari being showered w treats, weepingly thinking she doesn't deserve to be friends with them all. And then the sheer relief that it was all a dream and immediately Hikari picks up Karen lol
I wonder if this AU continued, would she have returned to her normal body after regaining her brilliance?
Hikari: "Look! I'm a teenager like you all!"
Everyone: "...No, you're still our little Hikawi-chan <3"
Hikari: "Oh bloody hell!"
Sorry to be a killjoy and ruin everyone's fun, but MOMO (the author) doesn't want her works to be uploaded for free without her permission, especially as this doujin in particular is available to buy online, so it's not like in other cases where doujins are out of print or impossible to read without a scanlation otherwise.
Oh, yikes! It's funny; I was thinking about finding a way to give her money, just because this was so good. Do you have a link where this is available for purchase? I have a hard time navigating Twitter rn since I don't have an account
