I'm aware that there are different way to romanizing and no one is really "correct" or "official". That's the way I was taught, so I stick to it.

I feel like what Chidori did in Ch 81 was completely unnecessary. Why would she tell Mai to tell Nanoha(her girlfriend) her true feeling? Somethings are better left unsaid. And now drama (which could’ve been avoided easily) happened. And it’s not only Mai who would be hurt hurt. Nanoha also would be hurt too.

Yeah no, those kinds of things are better to be told. At least Mai would have a proper answer to her feelings and can move on from that rejection. She is not bound by her love for Nanoha. And the drama has in fact been avoided by making the confession,

Mai already know that she doesn't stand a chance and while getting clear answer make easier for people to move on, it's still up to people. Many people move on without getting rejected. And some people couldn't move on even after getting rejected clearly. The most important thing is that they WANT to move on. But that's not my main problem here. My main problem is that Chidori is the one who tell Mai to confess to Nanoha. As I said in my last post, you just DON'T tell someone to confess their feeling to your girlfriend no matter how much you trust your girlfriend.

It that's what she wants to do, let her do it. I don't see an issue with this. There's no one way to be in a relationship.

I'm not certain that suggests it's at risk of cancellation so much as she can't simply keep writing until they're completely through high school. At the pace they're going that'd be like 200-300 chapters or more and the story progression wouldn't really be able to keep up with that.

"I really want to keep writing this till they graduate. If you haven't bought the tankoubon yet, I really wish you would" seems to imply that one of those things is related to the other.

But who knows. It's not like she comes right out and says they're going to cancel it. Maybe she just wants people to buy her manga, a common and reasonable desire for a mangaka to have.

"Secretly from everyone, the two of them are dating."

Never thought I'd be so glad to see those words again. Resume the fluffiness!

I spell it as "sempai" because that's how it's pronounced. ん isn't the same as "n". The moraic nasal is pronounced differently depending on the following sound. Before the bilabial consonants, "m", "b", and "p", it takes the form of the bilabial nasal, "m". That's why "tempura" is the standard spelling, not "tenpura".

This is also why "grandpa" becomes "gramps" instead of "granps"

I hadn't thought of that one. The example I would use is something like how the same prefix is "in" in "invincible" but "im" in "imperfect".

But that's sorta a different issue, since there is a single accepted English spelling for most English words. When you're spelling out Japanese words, there are several competing standards, and sometimes people ignore all the standards and just go off and do their own thing. Kovachi Luka is not the "right" way to romanize 古鉢るか by any standard, but that's how she spells her name.

It's not just that you have competing standards for romanizing Japanese words, but the standards for converting kanji to kana have only been established in relatively recent time. Between regionalism and the desire to preserve tradition, it can be a somewhat contentious topic. Most of the reforms happened between 1920 and 1960-something. (They never really "completed" the reforms so much as threw their hands up and said, "Good enough.") For a period of ~250 years, the Japanese language didn't even distinguish between /n/ and /m/ sounds. In fact ん (n) is a fairly recent addition, and the character む (mu) was used for the syllabic nasal until the early 20th century. This is the case for the poem Iroha, which is sometimes used for the ordering of kana, similar to our ABCs.
