The one set of comments that I can enjoy the hilarious commentary. All ships sank in several pages at once. I love you people. Could does less with the arguments about the level of drama but that's a fan for ya. Respect.
Okay. People. She got her signals crossed about romance vs. friendship BECAUSE Izumi tried to pass off her romantic feelings for friendship. Remember the whole "even friends can hold hands like this" thing? Izumi deliberately, out of jealousy, reframed Nanaki's deal with Kurokawa as just friendship. This is the thing.
People cannot possibly believe that this yuri manga by a yuri manga creator is not gonna have yuri in it, could they?
In my opinion, I just see this chapter as a transition, nothing hopeless.
For now, Fujiwara doesn't realize that the friendship she thinks she have for Kurokawa is actually love.
So, no worries ; I'm pretty sure it's not the end of yuri and things will evolve between Kurokawa and Fujiwara in the next chapters. ;-)
