In the most recent chapter, Risako tells Kaoru that she has not seen Reiichi since their wedding.

But after Kaoru's fall down the steps, Risako returns Kaoru's cellphone to Uta while explaining that she was at the scene of the accident. As Risako must have known would happen, Uta immediately told Kaoru that Risako had returned the phone and Kaoru (at that point still suffering from short-term memory loss) realizes that Reiichi and Risako were together.

So did the author simply forget that Kaoru would have every reason to know that Risako and Reiichi were together when she had her accident?

If not, what possible reason would Risako have for lying now about something that, at the time she assumed everybody already knew? (She says to Uta, "Didn't you hear from Reiichi? I was there when Kaoru injured herself.")

Even if Reiichi told Risako that Kaoru didn't remember anything about the accident itself (and therefore hoped to avoid explaining what they were doing together that day), she already had told Uta directly that she was there.

That's just the most obvious example of why I think this author is not carefully controlling the flow of information to readers to achieve an overall effect, but is just winging it, and not very smoothly, either.

Risako never gave Uta her name and is a complete stranger to her. Why would Risako have a strong reason to believe that Uta not only figured out who she was, but then also informed Kaoru of her identity and presence at the accident?

It is pretty much a given that Reiichi and Risako would have talked to each other about getting their stories strait after finding out Kaoru had short term memory loss from her concussion. I really don't see why Risako wouldn't have a pretty good reason to simply lie about seeing Reiichi given the situation.

  1. Don’t go talk shit to the author what is wrong with you! ( that person who did it) it’s the same that happend to WDTFS .. started telling her that she should be grateful someone is translating her work illegally.. SMH! You should never ever tell the author that their work is bad or to hurry the fuck up. As he/she said in the introductions this is their first long manga? Or maybe the first ever and he/she wanted to make this a good one, and motivation was something he/she wasn’t good at i think. So when people tell them shit like that we won’t get much more in the end. Think of about the consequences.

  2. My Opinion is that i think overall this story is going good so far, we can’t get what we want it’s for the author to decide, we can talk this out and make theory’s, but i whatever the author decides is up to them. As long as i get to see the progress i’m happy and i still have something to read i’m good!

  3. People who keeps saying i have no hope in this, and dropped it.... why are you making people triggered? If you dropped it you are welcome to comment, but i hope you read it least to come and make hell in the comment section.

  4. The author is not slow, good stuff takes time in my opinion, have most of the people here even tried drawing different expressions and positions and so on? It’s fucking difficult! I know this all to well. Not only do you have to think about story, but placements and where to put the writing. Then it’s needless negative people who’s sending feedback about not liking it and don’t like how it progressed and so on.. and the can feel down about such feedbacks, and lose all motivation! Like i said at first.. think about the consequences.....

Ummm... you realize you’re commenting on a website which posts illegal translations (without author’s consent) that has taken months or years after their publication date?

There is no incentive to send such constructive criticism back to the author because:
1. Website receives cease-and-desist letters from angry authors. Aaaand,
2. Commenting here is like a post-post-post game comment to an athlete or stating something to author who doesn’t need comments that are not remotely close to what they’re working on now.

Blastaar chuckled at your comment because you haven’t realized the separation from reality on this website (I must admit, it took me a while to realize this too). What you say only pertains to just the readers on this site, no one else. It’s like you farting in the wind and the mangakas are all up-wind but us readers are down-wind from you... so please, limit your exhortations to modify our behavior, because we all know that these uploaded translations are meant for us, who don’t know the languages these mangas were originally published.

This makes no sense—there’s no reason Uta would have play detective to “figure out who she was.” Risako explicitly says that she knows Reiichi. If Risako had been interested in hiding her identity, she could have simply given the phone to Reiichi and have him say that he picked it up.

It makes perfect sense.

Risako was not aware that Kaoru had suffered memory loss of the incident at the point where she handed over the phone. Of course she wouldn't have tried to hide her tracks at the time if she believed Kaoru strait up saw her.

She only bothered to try to lie about it after finding out she could because Kaoru didn't remember anything about what happened and the girl she gave the phone to has never met her before and has no idea who she is other than the fact she is one of any number of females acquaintances Kaoru has made.

There is nothing even remotely unrealistic about her course of action. She didn't try to hide it at first because she presumed she couldn't given that Kaoru saw her before falling.

The author even went out of her way to drive the point home at the time that Uta never got her name and didn't know who she was by having Uta outright state it in her conversation with Kaoru afterwards.

I feel like Reiichi is gonna straight up be like "uh wat? Nah lol, you're probably just feeling lonely 'cuz Uta left, we don't need a kid" and that's what's probably gonna open up Kaoru's eyes a bit. At least I hope it is, I hate the "having a baby with a dude" obstacle for lesbian fiction, it is so overdone sometimes, specially in books, and also because it's just so unnecessary for it to actually show a couple has problems and it's so awkward and uncomfortable.

Things are finally accelerating and my predictions on the evolution of situations are good ^^
kaoru really starts to understand the real situation of his couple, risako really becomes an important and decisive character, and kaoru is indeed a character as important as uta in the manga with already 2 chapters entirely focused on her

If it continues as I thought it would, kaoru will question his feelings, to absolutely want to remain in the normality of a male and female couple, of a family. And to think more and more about what is the case in the last 2 chapters=

My prediction for the furur is that she will part from reiichi, that risako will have to confess, moreover risako is a rather mysterious character it seems that she hides something deeper, is she in love with kaoru? that she will want uta to come back but it will not be as easy to convince her because uta no longer wants to be just a mouth hole

And yet as for the covers you see as much kaoru and the current arc and chapter 27 is almost exclusive to kaoru and in the future it will share the same part since the story will very probably focus between kaoru and uta for a rapprochement or a return
Thank you Watson but without bragging most of the predictions I made on different mangas turned out to be right but thx !

It's a dramatic manga and although uta suffers a lot it's kaoru that attracts all the drama almost with these multiple stories with reiichi,uta, his dead parents, and risako...
Otherwise you don't think risako seems weird, at first I really thought she wanted to stay with reicchi but now I have a doubt, she pushes kaoru to ask for a baby when she knows very well that reii doesn't want... she seems to look at kaoru in a special way...

Not quite sure what you trying to say here but Kaoru appear in 2 cover on 5 volume for the moment.

Oh god please no, that's the last thing i want to. I don't need a remake of NTR, adult life version

Don't tell me the story goes nowhere once again .

Many theorize that kaoru has real feelings towards uta deeper than a simple relationship of sisters but that she refused to do so because she was determined to remain in the normality which was for her to have absolutely a family and a husband.... she has several declarations and reactions or we see her react illogically and we all know that kaoru does not say what she thinks and even that she lies to herself... she gives this impression not to know means love really...
Now that she is losing her family and husband and wondering if she was thinking wrong about what was really going on, the author may want to show us a kaoru awakening and her feelings....
I think we're going in that direction and risako is an important piece and I'm convinced that the author is not going to leave uta outside of all his...

It's been a while that we see risako intermittently and each time with harmless dialogues that seem to be of no interest but finally....the small encounters between risako and uta for example .
If this is the way the author chooses, we have not finished with the drama because a new uta-kaoru-risako triangle would be quite intense 00

(Don't think this needs spoiler since it doesn't have anything to do with the new chapter and it's just speculations based on former chapters, so I'll leave it like that so we don't get black texts all over the thread. )

I mean, Kaoru having feelings for Uta is already a wishful thinking imo, but having feeling for Risako is unbelievable. So I doubt there will ever be this type of love triangle.
On the other hand, it wouldn't be impossible that Risako actually had feelings for Kaoru all along.
Her character has been mysterious and even the cheating is yet to be confirmed. So I could believe that the author leaving it ambiguous might hide more than just showing how low Kaoru is willing to stoop for keeping Reichii.

Of course it's just a guess, but if we want the story to go forward, the author will have to move things forward or the story will skate...
Uta is far away now, focus on kaoru kaoru's anger towards reiichi who doesn't want a baby
Risako on the phone who troubles kaoru and evening between girls or kaoru and risako come back together again and kaoru ends up still troubled and uncertain, the author insists a lot on that
What is certain is that kaoru has no specific feelings at all outside friendship with risako.
On the other hand risako is much more mysterious and her answers to uta about how she knows how to take care of kaoru, to go out to school with reicchi and now would not be a sabotage to keep kaoru to herself out of jealousy?
Then yes it already seems difficult for uta and kaoru to get closer lovingly (even if I have my idea on that) but we know how kaoru can seem completely illogical when she is stressed, risako could try to enjoy it.....It goes far I realize it, personally I prefer the scenario that kaoru is deceived by reicchi and risako and combined with the absence of uta goes into depression, uta the learner returns to support her and the, their relationship slowly evolves towards something other than sister and big sister.....

Ch.27 Up on MD Honestly, i feel bad for those who still have hopes for Kaoru/Uta ending because Kaoru make all she can to not make it happen. The fact that during her discussion, about the baby, both of them are true is stupid becauseit made Kaoru look like an idiot. Bar discussion who is unintersting as fuck between Kaoru and her friends and when going home with Risako and when Risako asking if she doubt her, she is not freaking capable to say yes because she is still delusional about her little world and think everything still can be alright when even a blind man can see everything is crumbling. Honestly i admire you if you still want the Kaoru/Uta ending because atm Kaoru make it not very likable.
