Woah! And this was in chapter 2?? Gosh.. I felt Kurokawa being weird was so out of the blue in this latest chapter, until you pointed out that past scene. It seems Kurokawa's already been established as a character with obsessive tendencies from the beginning then! I guess we have honestly forgotten her dark creepy side since her aesthetic transformation. Well, I sure did! Thanks for pointing that out!

And I actually didn't mind the new guy, although it was so trope-y as a plot device. Ajichi handled the Izumi confession so unexpectedly well that I'm willing to see more on how they will handle Kurokawa's creepy tendency. I hope it'll be a pleasant surprise.

Wait, is Kuro much more self aware than I thought? She always acted as if she never had any feelings and was just a really good friend (or felt like she could never compare), but I suppose that was the idea.

It seems like Kuro really kept that “I’m not equal” vibe the entire time. Like Kuro is Fujishiro’s stan.
So Fujishiro is the only one to do most of the emotional moving since the beginning. Feels like she’ll stress herself out from having to try to get closer to one of her “stans”. And Kuro tries to prevent her princess from burning out, but doesn’t realize her stan mentality is what causes the stress.

They’ll need lots of going back and forth with this issue. I want the ship to sail but it’s going to need lots of mental therapy and confidence building to go anywhere.

Kurokawa really should try to clear up the misunderstanding that Fujishiro has. Fujishiro really will get in a lonely corner by herself.
I guess maybe Kurokawa’s secret desire (to be a princess like Fujishiro or more equal) might be why Kurokawa hasn’t cleared up anything. Or is it that Kurokawa knows how bad of a stan she is that she knows that clearing up the misunderstanding means showing your princess how “ugly” you are inside. Well a mixture of both probably takes the cake for why Kurokawa is also a useless protagonist princess.

It’s interesting how my perspective on this story changed after I started reading more web novels starting with “I Favor the Villainess” or like “Bakarina” around October 2019 vs the start of this manga in 2018.

Kurokawa is like the “normal peon girl” who on one hand wishes to be a princess but obviously fangirl stans the story princess and even the “villainess noble girls”.
Fujishiro is like the “villainess noble girl” but she suddenly gains awareness when she realizes that Kurokawa is not as “ugly and flat” as Kurokawa appears.
Miku is your typical lackey fangirl that hates Kurokawa for breathing the same air as Fujishiro and even “breaking” the pecking order.
Izumi is your typical useless lesbian prince that more or less has a different relationship outcome thanks to Kurokawa’s “involvement”.
Yo-Chan and “the girls” are your typical otaku girl group that doesn’t realize Kurokawa is also an extreme “villainess noble girls” stan.
Iroha is like Yo-Chan except she helps show more perspectives of Kurokawa’s stan-ing. She also gets to pursue the useless lesbian prince thanks to Kurokawa’s involvement.

More or less, we knew that Fushijishiro was going to realize she was going to be alone and feeling depressingly lonely from hanging out with her initial group of friends who kept their distance. Fujishiro just happens to realize this now rather than in another 10-20 years thanks to Kurokawa’s falling out of the closet.

Now we will see how Fujishiro’s awareness changes as we now have a guy approaching Kurokawa Vs when the guy left Fujishiro.

Kurokawa will get her “princess moment” and I predict that she will give that up and reaffirm her resolve to Stan for Fujishiro.
As for Fujishiro, I just hope she finds a way to positively change Kurokawa from being a Stan to being a real friend, plus or minus a make a yuri ship with Kurokawa as bonus.

This manga is getting better and better. Yeah, this is guy arc is cliche, but it helps us see the first step of Fujishiro realizing her feelings for Kurokawa.
I also feel sorry for her because she seemed very off tbh. Wonder if a crazy inside her awakens now, just like it did with Izumi and Kurokawa.

I just hate how we have to wait for a month again. I can't exactly pinpoint the reason why, but this manga has the ability to pass through real emotions to the reader. It's probably one of the situations where the author is actually feeling while writing it.

Can't we do without it tho ? We already had the Izumi arc for that and she only manage to pull off the "Best friends" cards. And the problem is not even her feelings, the problem is Kurokawa self-confidence being lower than the Mariana Trench.As for now, she will probably reject it because she think she is not worthy of Fujishiro.

It takes time to develop a character. You can't have everything very fast. I personally like slow burns, so little steps like that and the angst that come with it are exactly the reason why I read these stories.
Now there are also stories like Hana Ni Arashi where the mains start to date very fast, and that's another category. But the whole point of drama like this is because some readers actually like it this way.

So much that Kurokawa barely change since the start.The problem with slow burn is that at some point, lot of peoples are just frustrated and bored because we pass 5/6 chapters on a drama to barely move the relation.
