For clarification, my comments had nothing to do with any specific plot point or character. I just scoffed at the notion this chapter qualified as "drama" or that the overall tone of the series till now has been anything other than cute and adorably gay (imo).
I simply think it's a really well-done story so far. One of the best in a long while. I think the comparison to Yagate Kimi a few pages back was sound.
Agreed. I'm quite amazed at how no part of this manga thus far has felt at all forced or contrived. The characters are all relatable and act with clear logic. The realism of it is palpable, and I think certain people would do well to step back and appreciate that.
Gosh, I really could just gush about this series all day...
It's going to be an instant classic if it maintains this level of quality all the way through and ends up being as gay as we're all hoping it will be (and it appears to be).
Like, if not for how jaded we are as a community, and not for the subtext tag, would there be any doubt?
I actually went into this manga blind a few weeks ago (just stumbled across it while pouring through shoujo ai/yuri tags on various platforms to see if I missed any gems), and I honestly thought it was a Senpai/Kouhai love story two chapters in.
