^IF you mean Yuzu, a lot of people really like her and the slow build up with kaede. In fact personally I liked every pairing- and STILL liked the the main pairing best by the end.
I thought it was very emotional how Yuu got so serious and forced Haruka to face her fears and emotions to move forward.
I really loved Kotone and Suzuka as well, and how they straight forwardly faced down Kotone's father and confessed.
It was a great series overall. I'd love another season of the anime but doesn't seem likely :( and with so many chapters I can't see the manga carrying on to college either unfortunately. Maybe we will get a few little one off's following on?
^I agree in general, but you add elements to stories for the stories sake- because they have a role or point- otherwise why go to the bother? Token inclusion? I don't think a story having a 'token' lesbian or trans character adds much from a representation point of view either - just like Nishimura could have been a guy but only the writer knew- and they never told anyone- it doesn't add much to the story or the conversation / normalizing it, unless it is visible and used to some effect I think.
So I think this fact WILL be raised again and have some significance - it doesn't need to have big deal made of it, but even if it's just to show trans / crossdresser (whatever he is) in a better light (they are often just joke characters in anime/manga) the writer will want to do a bit more than just stick a male symbol by their name. And I think you are right, it will presumably involve Eiko learning more about Enami.
Ok figured it out when I noticed there was LOTS of extra posts under i.e. It WAS tags but not quite what you suggested Drpepperfan (chrome was logged into my account too but not i.e) It was the whitelist.
I assumed white list meant 'always show stuff with these tags' - and I had yuri tag in it.. But it actually meant 'only show stuff with these tags' right? So I wasn't seeing anything that didn't have a yuri tag- like slow start.
Lol- So how much stuff have I missed going up over the last year or 2 with subtext or just no romance that was great lol? Its not like I only read yuri.. gonna have to do some general searches for yuri crash and subtext for the last few years lol.
My mistake- but glad I caught it at last. I bet it explains somewhere what the whitelist does too right?
P.s- I REALLY can't see slow start as not yuri any more.
^ Lol- that's why I looked over it first time- at a glance it's not clear what it is due to the brackets being so close in to it- but you take a close look and it's clear what it is. I also didn't pay attention to the first name- which is a guy only name.
I wonder why the mangaka made the point of including this info but has yet to make it relevant? Well- I guess it lets us know Enami is fine with gender/sex related things that differ from 'the norm'.
Eiko, make certain you are never alone with that girl.
4) Nishimura is a crossdressing male (see ch24). He hasn't really gotten enough focus thus far to determine what his deal is (ie. sexuality/gender identity/etc.) but he seems to be an LGBT ally if Enami's comfortable getting drunk around him.
I just read through chapter 24 again, and there was nothing in there that made me conclude ANYTHING like this. At all.
You missed it, like I did too till it was pointed out - it has not been raised in the story
I just noticed Slow start had been adding chapters but I hadn't seen them going up.
People tell me they see it in their recently added list- like on the 11th for example- but it isn't there for me- I only see 4 releases that day- none are slow start. I go back multiple pages of recently added and it's not there.
It dosn't have any blacklisted tags - and I don't think it's firefox add ons interfering because I tried chrome too, and it also doesn't appear and that has no addons. I tried then using I.E and it magically appears.
Isn't there weird? I've no idea if I've been having other releases not show in the lists for some reason too.
@luinthoron How come it doesn't show on my list? So this last chapter appears for you on recently added under 11th feb? I have 4 things listed there, no slow start.
@ Goggled Anon Thanks for the info :) I totally missed that male symbol after Nishimura's name in ch24 - I think because it's not drawn very clear it didn't register.
But I still don't get why Nishimura is saying adults are filthy (or dirty cheaters)- who cheated at what? If he is talking about Enami saying she wasn't drunk, I dont get it- she isn't- and hasn't claimed to be.. I thought Nishimura might be talking about how Enami was teasing her young student- though thats not much clearer.
But there was some stuff I didn't get on page 73 -
The 'even a kitten can scare off it's prey' - who is the kitten? Tokura wasn't really scared off, but Sensei certainly wasn't. Tokura was a lot more the innocent one in this exchange- and calling sensei a kitten doesn't fit her- and she isn't the one doing the hunting. Well, she might be, I guess? So who is the kitten and the prey?
I wonder too what Enami meant by 'it wasn't a play'? Does she mean it was serious?
Why exactly does her friend state Enami hasn't got drunk at all today, and Sensei make a point of saying she has been saying that all along?
And what's with the last panel? What is her friends 'Arrg, adults are so filthy!' line about? and Enami responding with 'I was just telling the truth?' I don't get these at all- they seem to be talking about different things.
And wtf is the 'it's falling off' and 'my wig!' line about? Is that background chat or them? Why would she be wearing a wig and it be mentioned in passing in the last panel? I don't get this panel at all?
@Calm lol no- she is always instigating stuff - the main 'gimmick' of that pair is the girl who is meant to be the school prince is actually nothing like that - in reality she is shy and girly, but only her gf knows. And its her gf who takes the lead.
^ I meant to ask what that was about- you mean panel 5 & 6 of the last page of chapter 56 right? Eiko realizes something or sees something on her phone (not sure if she was is looking at it or not) and says is that so? And has a bit of a blush before saying lets go.
I didn't see any specific reason for her behavior. Is the shop being near the station significant? That's about the only thing Tama mentioned- besides it having a rep for making yummy food.
Her expression didnt suggest she just wanted to go eat nice food.
