It is clear that reichii has a nonchalant attitude, he takes kaoru for his buddy... kaoru in a little desperate mode plays everything for the whole, finally there was not only uta in unrequieted love mode, kaoru also with reichii is at the same level.
Now kaoru knows that reiichi is cheating (phone conversation with risako who lied to her) she wants a escapement and that's where the turn for me comes in, is what reicchi is going to want to do at her request? it would have been so cowardly...

That's het story drama at this point. I thought Kaoru couldn't get more unshippable with Uta, but apparently not.
Basically we're just waiting to see how Kaoru and Reiichi's rs will end, while Kaoru loses her remaining self respect.

Yes this manga is difficult to predict, the author leaves chapter after chapter several possibilities, nothing is definitely decided even after 26 chapters.
The story is still well constructed and it's funny to see that finally little by little kaoru becomes the central character of the plot.
Everything will depend on his choices and also those of reiichi, I can't believe that the author leaves him so "stupid", already his reaction to the request of a child of kaoru should be very interesting.

Omg is that what she is asking in the last panel?? This girl is so dumb, I don't understand...I thought in the previous panels she caught herself thinking about having Uta around her instead of Reiichi...

Someone mentioned this is turning into basically a het drama, and they are quite right. If Kaoru is that deep into just wanting to keep this guy, how can she possibly be with Uta later on? :-(

Lmao this story should be renamed slowly easing yuri fans into straight stories. At this point, I'd just rooting for Kaoru to win Reiichi over Risako, if he didn't cheat

It seems that this is the last kaoru card to try to save his fake couple... if reiichi refuses or says he will think about it, kaoru will fall into total depression and everything becomes possible again....
On the other hand, if reiichi accepts not only will kaoru sink into a parallel loving universe and the author will choose to continue in drama for her with a predatory risako

Just found the time to read the raws for chapter 26. Here's the summary for it (in hopes it'll clear up any confusion here):

Kaoru is evidently depressed at Uta's departure. Reiichi seems to not care as much, although he admits it has gotten quieter around the house. He also mentions that they'll most likely see her again anyway during the holidays, so it's not really a big deal. Upon hearing this, Kaoru remembers Uta's parting words ("Goodbye") and is aware that there is a chance she may not get to see her again.

Later, Kaoru tries to invite Reiichi out to go shopping with her, but Reiichi declines the invitation, saying that he just wants to stay home and rest for the day. Kaoru tries to be understanding, but is low key a little upset by this, and recalls that in the past, whenever Reiichi would decline her invitation, she could always turn to a more willing Uta and ask her to hang out instead. Kaoru tries to shake this out of her head, and asks Reiichi to take her out on a date next weekend (to which he very casually agrees to).

Kaoru goes out on a shopping trip on her own, and on the way back, she makes a stop at the cafe she and Uta used to work at. The manager at the cafe asks how things are going between the married couple now that she and Reiichi no longer need to take care of Uta, and Kaoru finds herself making excuses to convince herself that everything will be fine, she just needs time to readjust. In the end, the manager also tells Kaoru how important it is to communicate with her partner, and Kaoru leaves with these words in mind.

While Kaoru is waiting for the train at the platform, she receives a call from Risako, who is also asking about how Kaoru's life is without Uta under her skin. However, Risako phrases this in a way that makes it seem like Uta was just a bother in Kaoru & Reiichi's lives. Kaoru is shocked that Risako is even aware of Uta's departure to begin with, but Risako answers that she just happened to run into Uta the day before she left. At this point, Kaoru finds the courage within herself to ask Risako if she had run into Reiichi lately, to which Risako responds by saying that she hasn't seen him since their wedding. Risako tries to ask Kaoru what's up, but Kaoru finds an excuse to hang up, since her train was arriving.

Meanwhile, Kaoru is shocked because Risako's tone of voice didn't sound like she was lying at all. However, Kaoru recalls a memory from high school, and remembers that Risako has always been a good liar. The panel associated with this memory has high school Risako saying that Reiichi isn't her type at all (which is a lie, considering she is Reiichi's ex). Kaoru reflects on when she caught Reiichi together with Risako right before her accident, and admits that she was simply too scared to ask him what was going on since she didn't want to lose him. She then thinks to herself that she no longer wants to lose anything else again.

After that thought, Kaoru goes home and sits next to Reiichi on the couch... and tells him she's been thinking about wanting kids with him.

I swear to god, if she is serious about that, i stop reading that shit. I just hope she asking it to see if he see their life together in the long term, which i think it's pretty obvious at this point that he not. Still, Kaoru is a coward. She could just ask him directly about the matter but try to found another way to approch it. But just the fact that she might be serious about that make me mad.

Lol I dropped this like a year ago and for the comments it sounds like only a week or 2 has passed in the manga! is the same problem from back then and still nothing is resolved... And from the Spoilers I'm reading, I'm glad at least Uta went somewhere else, dunno where but at this point who would even want to ship her with Kaoru anyway, you guys right, this ain't yuri anymore.... But is perfect if you like dragged drama

IMO, the implication is that she wants to know if he can see them together in the long term. I don’t think she wants kids with him - she just doesn’t want to lose anybody else. Uta’s departure seems to have hit her hard. I think, since Kaoru has been with Uta for quite literally their entire lives, she got used to (figuratively) being in a relationship with both Uta and Reiichi, to the point where she never fully noticed just how incompatible she and Reiichi were (e.g. him being lazy, listless and non-committal), since Uta was always there to fill in the blanks (e.g. Uta would hang out with Kaoru or cheer her up whenever she was down).

You think kaoru asks reichi that she wants a child just to know if he is considering a future for his couple? it's quite possible because it will mean that kaoru will finally understand that rei doesn't really care about her…

Reiichi’s commitment to making the marriage work is deeply inspiring—a true soulmate.

"I didn't feel like she is lying" ???? Hello, you see them together recently.How the hell can you think she is not lying ? I don't even know what Risako think anymore, i thought she want to go back with Reiichi, if it's not already done and now she said that to Kaoru ? What did she think ? That Reiichi will creep out and drive away from Kaoru ? Risako is a big mystery i can't grasp yet. Kaoru is a big mess and can't even think straight, the Risako is lying reflexion is what seal the point. Kaoru know that they seen each other as she witness it but still seem to want to deny that.Seriously, i come back on that but what the hell is the reflexion for ? You see them, there is not need to think that she is a good liar.

And the biggest yikes for me, the baby. I don't know what Risako's goal by saying that and i don't have a fucking clue what Kaoru thinking by saying that. What are you trying to achieve ? You suspect your husband to have an affair with one of your friend and instead of trying to confront him, you tell him "Let's have a baby". I start to understand why people don't like Kaoru.

I didn't think Kaoru could get any lamer but here we are.

I also think how the author is making the case possible for a Uta x Kaoru endgame is pretty lame. It was always kinda bad, but especially felt forced in this chapter with the direct "But Uta would've done this..." comparisons.

I don't even blame Reichii for how he is acting. I don't blame that he didn't want to go out that day. It was a good reason. I don't blame him for not being aware of how Kaoru is feeling because she never fuckin talks about it. He even asks her what's up at the end and she lies. Like we're shown over and over how he is a bad husband, but she never calls him out for it. I can't take her problems seriously if she isn't proactive in dealing with it. How can I feel bad for her if she never even tried to fix them properly in the first place?

"Kaoru is inevitably thrust further into her 'marriage'." I don't know why, I can't explain it, but that line on the cover just had me laughing for several minutes straight. It's too much! It's so flagrant! I can't even.... hahahahha.

Oh jeez. Okay. I think I recoverted now. Where to begin? Kaoru is still a coward who can't address her issues. Now that Uta is gone she can't distract herself from the "cheating" anymore. Risako lying about it is not necessarily confirmation either though, because both of them know what that would sound like. It might be a white lie (not that I really believe that).

So what is Kaoru's solution? BIND THAT GAMERLORD TO HER WITH A CHILD. Classic. Always works. Much more reasonable than talking things out. If he put one into the oven he can't escape and the kid will be such a huge distraction that she can hardly even remember the threat of cheating anymore! Brilliant.

Plot twist: Risako has been into Kaoru all this time and trying to get her by destroying her relationship with Reiichi.

I mean, it’s the only way this story could turn Yuri at this point. Run Uta run!

The sad part is this strategy is actually used by many straight women in real life. With different degrees of success. So the story is actually realistic, just in a very frustrating way.

There is a yuri story where woman with uninspiring husband has love affair with her daughter childhood friend. This is prequel. But seriously story got off rail when Kaoru fell from the stair. Now it’s a mess. And, yeah, some people do think that kids reinforce not-a-good marriage.

Well the first rule of Shitty Relationship Club is that having a baby always makes everything better, after all.

Maybe she's just saying that to see how her shit husband will react, since she just confronted the fact that Risako is a suave ass liar but still caught nonetheless. Though it's more likely that shes just being wishywashy as usual because she still hasn't figured out how to be responsible for her own damned happiness.

It's a bit more complicated that you make it sound like.It's not your classic misunderstanding situation, we talk about cheating with straight up lies. It's easy to say that Kaoru should walk up to Reiichi and ask him about that but in reality it's more complicated, Kaoru is in a mess after the whole Uta storm and she still trying to stay focus. Reiichi is now the only thing that keep her not alone, so it's difficult for her to ask Reiichi about that because if he say it's true and decide to go with Risako then Kaoru will be alone and depressed.

Honestly, yes Kaoru can do it but it's really difficult for herself right now to not but even salt in the injury and we talk about a simple cut here.
