The irony is that Mei and Matsuri would have more chances of working out than with Yuzu.

I get the impression that Matsuri would probably be interested in having them both. Mei is more likely to agree to such a thing than Yuzu is. So, it's not likely to happen. :P

The look on the grandfather's face was awesome. It was almost like he knew she was going to say SOMETHING, but wished she had used a little more tact.

Does anyone know how many chapters are in volume 1?

I lost my copy of volume 1, and can't find anyone willing to ship to the US (My Japanese is not good enough). I have the other four volumes in my bookshelf waiting for me to read the volume that I lost. ^^;

You can look at what the first chapter in volume 2 is and safely assume that the chapters up to that are probably in volume 1... no?

Thanks!

For some reason, I didn't even think of that.

Of course, in response to my own post, since I see that people are already starting to use the spoiler tag, I would advise you ignore my previous comment completely. ^^;; Better to annoy one or two people who are used to other things than to undo people's work in your current environment. hehehehe

Just a comment or two. First, I think that == is likely the worst possible thing to use to tag spoilers, it gets used in too many other ways.

:P That is my only complaint in what I see so far. The list of stuff that is getting implemented is pretty cool.

Also.. It would be nice to be able to filter out dojin and slash ficks (basically the A x B flags). A lot of people are interested in just that, and that is great. :-) Some of us just want to see the original stuff. We have to sift through quite a bit of those.

None of what I am saying here is by any means a deal breaker. the site is awesome. :-)

1) I think this one is great so far.

2) She doesn't look like a guy at all. ^^; I mean, maybe not ultra-feminine, but not overly boyish either.

3) The "Are you with child," bit, I think, is more to do with the fact that pretty much every seat on a Japanese train is reserved for the elderly, disabled, and pregnant. (I miss Japan so much, it is like home).

After two issues it is already at the top of my list of favorites. :-)

I know that the tail end of eight was cliche as heck, but I am still looking forward to nine. :)

Less of a "she doesn't love me back", and more of a, "if I want her to be happy, I can't love her now, because that's not what she needs", so the avenue is (seemingly) closed forever. That probably won't end up being the case in the end, though.

I would not say the avenue is closed. More like there are speed bumps.

The end result at this point is more clear to the reader than it is to the characters involved. At this point, Mei has made a number of things clear. Yuzu just hasn't caught on to those things.

She did finally catch on though, that for the moment at least, Mei does need exactly what she stated at the grave: Someone to protect her. For the moment, she needs a big sister more than a girlfriend.

I am guessing that more likely what happened is Momokino probably tried to hug or kiss her, or similar, and when she was brushed off, she changed the story up a bit before passing it on to Yuzu. I don't think anything too terribly awful has happened so far during the series. I am just wondering what is going on with Mei and her father. It could be as simple as "He is never home, and I want him to be proud."

I personally was not ready for that one to be over, but I will say that like a few other people, I was pretty sure that the mangaka was going to write it all down after it was done. :P

Huuuuuh? Thats the end? Why? And whats with this bluntness about being friends?(
I thought it would be definitely something huge epic end gosh
Author owes us second volume !!

I didn't see any bluntness. Really. It is a lot more complicated than that.

Kurashiki spoke her true feelings, and didn't really get what she was saying herself. Fujiwara got it, and reacted to it, but when it became obvious that Kurashiki wasn't thinking that far ahead, she basically said she could wait for her to come around.

I will miss the series. :P I have it tagged as one of my favorites. :)

@.@
This series is still awesome.

I dont know why she breaks up, just because he lost the strap. he even apologized. Its not like he cheated on her?
she was overreacting.

I get the impression that she didn't break up at the time. :P That is why she freaked out when they stepped on the phone. I think it accidentally sent one of those emails that you normally write when you are totally pissed, and then hit delete once you calm down. ^^

I love this author's work as well! :)

Wow, this one was great.

I would advise anyone that read it just for the sex scenes to go back and reread it for content. :-)

Yes, it has sex, and the sex is somewhat explicit, but it actually feeds into the story.

This one was surprisingly good.

It was a bit rushed at points (as some have said), but it was also a one shot. The editor probably said "What can you give us in this many pages?"

As for throwing away the money, I get it completely. She had found a focus for her life, and that money felt like an anchor to her. She didn't want to use it for anything that would apply to her new focus. She got rid of the anchor.

As for those who are confused at points, one of the things I love about this series is that they delve into reality! It is awesome, even if it gets dark at times. :)

And now we see more of the history of one of the background characters. :-)

I absolutely love this series so far. :P I am actually already kind of sad at the realization that it will end some day. ^^;

I have to say that this series had the most awesome ending ever. Some people were asking which is better, this one or Girl Friends. I actually read Girl Friends first because I got it in the two volume omnibus edition... And it was absolutely awesome... but I still say it is kind of hard to say which was better. Both are on my list of stuff to re-read. :-)

I would love to see this one expanded into a multi-chapter manga. :-)

I am going to be at Book Off in a bit, I may look for this one while I am there. O.o It is actually pretty good.

I thought the series was wonderful. It took a little to get used to the 4-koma style used at places, but it was still great. :-)

O.o When the last chapter started, I was like @.@ WHAT? In the last chapter? :P But even though they rushed it a little, they got everything back on track for the end.

Yeah. The series was awesome... But them ringing the wedding bell was just the perfect ending.

:P
And then the extras where they showed how the other characters ended up. :)
