Nene keeps saying abandoned, as if it was her owners fault for getting killed. Or maybe she was just hospitalized?

I think maybe it's a translation thing, like she might be saying the Japanese equivalent of "abandoned" because that's what you would say in Japanese and it's just awkward to translate in this context.

Or I might be talking out my ass, I don't speak a lick of Japanese. <:D

Could also be some weird Japanese guilt complex thing. They seem to have a cultural tendency to personally "assume responsibility" - or ascribe it onto others - over a number of things that strike Westerners as absurd and essentially force majeures.

Abandoned seems to fit what Nene feels. She nearly starved to death in some apartment when her owner disappeared, she's only been sentient for a year, and she learned her past in a dream the day of this chapter.

In order to be a Nekomata, a cat has to be unusually long-lived, so her age was intentional

What about that panel where mahoro says she's a place Nene can come back to, though? Now that's what this chapter is all about

Some Russian girls said they were looking for a Loralie-san or something

After a heavy backstory moment, it's nice to go back to fluffy slice of life chapters again.
Yuki and Kuuko are an old married couple, Nene is tsundere and Kii is baby. Everything is normal.

Heh well yeah, I just read 61 here so that part was obvious. But thanks, so just three more left huh. I suppose this never had that much of a narrative to feel rushed when it ends, but still kinda sad.

Don't worry, Hijiki doesn't know how to count. There's more than that left. Still, I thought 65 came out a few days ago? I could be wrong, though 64 came out a month ago

EDIT: Without giving away the secret numbering scheme, we have 5 releases left!

I'ma be honest, if Kuuko and Yukime don't officially get together before the end I'll be a little bit mad.

They've been official since that chapter on how they met..... is what I reckon

Also, their bubble party gave me Spongebob movie flashbacks

It's official that Yuki is gay as heck for Kuuko, but they're not really a couple. Kuuko has never told Yuki it's mutual, and it's been hundreds of years.

Seems very much like distinction without difference when they've been essentially cohabiting for centuries and both appear find the relationship fulfilling.

Plus bit hard to see how any hypothetical suddenly going explicit after the aforementioned centuries would not look like a gratuitous asspull...

This chapter definitely has the feeling of the author wrapping up all the subplots as quick as possible.

Connection found. Which is fine, If it didn’t seem as though things were winding down. I thought Riko and Haru Irukawa hot springs also felt a little rushed at the end. But I stilled liked the ending . When this ends, I hope it will be satisfying to a point. But both of her stories have had so much promise, and world building, and lovable characters, then a slow fizzle towards the end. But I love this story regardless. I cried for Mahoro at the end.

Sent to hospital because of a 38 degree fever? Eh, I guess everyone is different but that does not sound that bad generally speaking.

Also Mahoro just phase shifted what
