So what did everyone make of Kagami's line about "not caring about maidens or anything like that?"
It came off as a bit of strange thing to say, but I took it to mean something along the lines of Kagami basically saying I'm not a lesbian but I'm not going to let anybody steal you away?
Or something perhaps along the lines of I'm normally not into girls, but I am into you?
Well from previous chapters, "Maidens" comes off as a local school social phenomenon. Where an older student takes a younger one as their own. I'm not entirely sure how to put it adequately. I'd say it's less saying that she's not normally into girls, but more she doesn't care about what dumb school social status thing exists.
... and instead we got to see four students get kicked out of the council room (literally, not metaphorically: the kick is so hard, they go flying out of the door) while Tsubaki yells: "And don't ever return, you losers, or yer gonna make me REALLY angry!"
It's not that surprising if you consider that this manga is full of angry & violent people. Like, half of the cast have anger management problems...
So what you're saying is... Arata Iri wrote an entire manga with Kanna as 99% of the cast?
