I mean, creativity isn't just black and white either, though. There can be excellent characterizations, and there can be disaster's like what Viz did to Nettaigyo...

Wait, what did Viz do? I'm unfortunately out of the loop, but I'm prepared to fetch my pitchfork if need be.

I honestly haven't even managed to bring myself to read more after the first volume. The worst case of localization I've seen in a while, with the quiet Japanese loner Koyuki sounding like the stereotypical popular American cheerleader, to the point that I can physically hear the bubblegum.

Well that's just unfortunate. It's a good thing I've been holding off on buying the English print volumes then. Thanks for the info!

Such a classic move, a flashback chapter after a big cliffhanger.
Well, I can't say I didn't like it at all, because it gives us a new perspective about how Kurokawa feels and thinks. I just think this chapter was too short and I expected to see that scene where she bumped into Fujishiro and her boyfriend, and shows us how she felt about that encounter.

I was expecting the same, but we already got a semi-explanation of how she actually felt that day in the last chapter. I think we would get at least another flashback chapter of her actual thoughts on her whole friendship with Nanaki and would get to see her actual thoughts during that moment before we get to see the climax of Nanaki's confession. At least thats what i'm hoping for.

Ohh that would be interesting to read...Even though we already know why Kurokawa had such a rejection to Nanaki's advances, throughout the story we are only introduced to her insecure side. We haven't seen her side that likes Fujishiro, and this chapter showed a snippet of it. This is why I don't consider it a filler.
Another (very specific example) I'd like to see was that scene during their school trip where Kurokawa got really close to Nanaki's face to demonstrate how far she can see without her glasses. And even though Nanaki was really flustered/upset, Kurokawa seemed very nonchalant about it. So it would be interesting to see if Kurokawa got flustered too and hid it.

I agree with Kurokawa's sentiment so much. I can't help but absolutely LOVE the hot, confident bitchy girls. Bonus if they're a blonde

The people who says that chapter 32 was pretty forced didn't pay attention at all :/ I'm rereading because this update once a month and i can barely get through a chapter with each cliffhanger. But Kurokawa really had it hard and the fact that she had that realization since she was a kid crushes me since I too have an inferiority complex but her's is a lot worse than i thought. I assumed she was getting over it when she hanged out with Fujishiro and got a glow up but I guess she admired Fujishiro so much that she really really REALLY couldn't imagine herself standing beside her nor can she accept herself as Fujishiro's love interest... I really hope things end up well for the two of them...

... oh girl, so more than hating how she is, she wish for being like the one she admired, it's like she doesn't have time to complain about how she is but look straight to how she want to be, but was scared of that too? I think I'm really missing something here. Still, love these two so much~ I just don't want this to turn darker X'D ♥

Strongly agreed. People here are complaining how bitchy Nanaki is, but I think she's soooooo cool, especially in that bathroom scene.

I'm not completely sure, but I think each volume is like 8 chapters long.

I could be wrong tho.

I'm not usually one to vent my frustrations, but I just came back here and realized Seven Seas left out chapter 7.5. Sure, it's not exactly important, but it's quick and cute and it's just adding to the pile of controversy they've been in lately. 13.5 is present, and volume 3 (as far as I have) ends with ch 18 but doesn't have 18.5, so I'm not sure if that will be kept.

Ugh...Seven Seas publishes a lot of yuri, so I can't bring myself to stop supporting them, but this does rub me the wrong way.

That's...extremely far from my interpretation. "Quiet Japanese loner" is definitely what I got from Koyuki in Viz's release, and I've only read Viz's release.

Daaaaamn, Ch.32 was gut wrenching even though it was building up to that moment for... like, the whole story? With Kurokawa's inferiority complex and her own penchant for putting Nanaki on a pedestal, there's no other way it could have gone, really, but it still hurts.

Now it's a question of whether it resolves fast or drags out at the speed of anime.

7.5 and 18.5 aren’t in the Japanese volumes either, so the problem didn’t start with Seven Seas. Ajiichi does mention that her chapters kept going over the page count, so that’s probably why they got cut.

Oh, that's good to hear. Still a shame, but more understandable.

There's a new special limited chapter:

It's just two pages of fanservice fluff, nothing exciting.
