I don't think it's a sequel. It's more like same situation in a different universe.
Nope - it is obviously just a sequel - what would make you think that?
I'm very hopeful given how good the first one is - but the insecure boys talk was off-putting compared to how the first story ended. Maybe they wanted to do a sequel since it was so popular but couldn't think what drama they could have besides the old fall back of wanting a boy and only being a girl? (Even though Hanjuku josei was all about putting that dumb idea to rest.?)
Well, I say they came to terms with it in part one, but you could say since neither were around and boys, being so has made them unsure and worried all over??
Hopefully this insecurity over boys thing will be very short lived and the author will move on to other stuff.
Ohh, my bad. I skim through the first few pages and was a little confused with the story. Just got some time now to read the first chapter. Yea, I was wrong on thinking that it was from another universe.
Oh woah woah, don't drop this series just because Kou is going off. Just like any characters she will still be making appearance, in France.
You can't expect every chapter of the manga to feature all the main characters after all, and seeing how this author is able to do character building for each main, I believe he won't drop Kou like any other manga does.
I think I would cry when they animate the part where the crew announce PECO to public, that chapter make me tear up.
Normally in gaming industry (Or at least the one that I used to work at), programmers are always the one who is at fault. No one would really blame the game designers for giving the work late. No one will blame the producer for assigning the work late. No one will blame the character designer for submitting the 2D/3D design late.
Although I am not working as any of the roles above. So I understand Naru's position when she asked who will be responsible if she submit the work late. After all, she's just an intern.
Chapter 49 and onwards, this is what most of the manga forget; realistic character progression. I read the Chinese translated ones previously, and I really like how this story show us the characters development
