It is, as stated by fellow worriors of purity, infact a very delightful and charming slice-of-lifish story and I'm pretty excited for upcoming plot events.
What I'm missing though would be some hints of episode-crossing character development that are a little deeper than "oh well, this episode she learned about her invironment, the following one she joined this 'n that club".
Gotta admit, I'm curious to see where the author intends to go with this. I still don't like Riko being dragged around, but the way that things are escalating it seems like the author is deliberately going somewhere with it. Being assaulted by a rabid harem, being pushed into advertisement because of her looks...at some point I imagine that for Riko something will have to change. I think I'll be looking forward to it.
Great chapter. Maybe I'm unimaginative but I like the chapters of plain Riko and Haru interaction the best. Also wow, Riko's personality is really sweet. The mom situation/stuff is pretty important for establishing her character, I wonder if we'll get to see her show up at some point as well. I feel like the story has set up a good basis for itself at this point, will be curious to see where it goes next.
And that was volume 1... here is the plot so far: a city model girl go to a rural village, meet a childhood friend, enter in her club, make 2 other friends... that's it... wow... In Girlfriends which was super slow at the end of volume 1 there was a kiss at least....
