format cue (like a black border indicating a flashback)

With the amount of flashbacks, I wished the author did use something like that here...

But then, as you previously pointed out, this story features flashbacks within flashbacks sometimes, so how would that be presented in a visual manner.... double-borders? shaded borders? or maybe plaid frames? :P

Is there any difference between flashbacks and imagination, and if there is, how do you know?

About answers on this question, if I understood explanations of other readers, flashbacks are based on "flashing images" (example, senpai with hickey), and author is creating a side story based on that image, story which took it's time in the past.

So, probably we can't know what is memory what imagination, until it takes it's side story in manga.
But, observing style of the author, everything is based on flashbacks from the memory of characters, they get one "flashing image" of certain moment or person, and after it author enters in side story, giving more information to readers about it.
Correct me if I'm wrong getting it as I wrote here.

No, that’s a reasonable way of thinking about it.

In a sense, all the flashbacks are “memories”—they’re things the characters either have thought or events they have experienced. The relationship of those flashbacks to a narrative present can be different, though.

When Asuka (within the flashback) is talking with Miyuki at the cram school and suddenly gets an image of her mother, that’s happening at the time that scene takes place.

But when we get the story of Asuka masturbating on her mom’s bed, that’s being presented to the reader as an event in the past, but not as “Asuka is now remembering in chronological order and in complete detail the time she masturbated on her mom’s bed.” It’s backstory, but not necessarily tied directly to what a particular character is thinking at a given moment in the story.

Things are also complicated by the shifting center of character focus (not quite the same as “point of view”). We mostly get inside the heads of Asuka, Ayako, and Jun, although we see the thoughts/memories of others, like Akira and Miyuki, as well.

Miyuki's backstory is so needlessly dark and contrived that turns around and become hilarious for how out of place is with the rest of the series' tone.

I'm just confused when reading this manga now. Miss the old times where it was just Asuka and Ayako (and Akira sometimes but who cares)

13.5 ... POINT FIVE! x_x ...and it still drags out.
So, Miyuki's family situation is messed up and that's probably why she's the way she is.
Sorry, but I have a hard time caring for that/her. (Suicidal mother is no joke, but I gotta somewhat agree with Dark_Tzitzimine.)

Of cos I'll stick around to see how this (flashback/relationship) ends and how it affected present time events... but... geez.

I say Asuka is romantically and sexually in love with her mother. But as the flashbacks indicate, she's also a youngster with raging hormones and confusion. And so, it's not surprising or even disappointing (for me, at least) to see her getting it on with someone her age and someone not her kin.

I think it'll be super important to have the senpai as Asuka's "first".

Um... Hello there, it's all happening before she realised her feelings? Rather it should be exactly next scene in the flashback when Asuka is going to come to the big realisation. At least I presume so according to this foreshadowing:

6, 6 freakings chapters of flashbacks. Can't we end this already ? We all know Asuka prefer her mom so just said Senpai has nearly fuk Asuka but Asuka find out Senpai toy with her and she prefer her mom than bam. Senpai's dark past is just the cherry on top, it could have been sad if it wasn't funny at this point.Just tell me her dad is an alcoolhic and we're complete. I start do give 0 sh*ts to that backstory.

At this rate, I wouldn't be surprised if next chapter reveals Miyuki was abused by her mother, her sister caught them and that's why she killed herself.

Honestly getting that vibe now. Or rather her mother caught her screwing around with her sister and the mom went a bit overboard on the ol' freakout.
