They had to do me like that with the ending, just as she was about to unleash the full might of character development!

This story keeps making me shake my head in bemusement of what dumb tripe I'm generally okay with in drama manga.

I thought so at first too, but maybe he is genuinely annoyed at Miwa behavior, I mean, he knows that Miwa has a GF so he see it as Miwa taking advantage of the other guy and leading him on, she doesn't even have to say she has a GF or disclosing her private life, she just have to tell the guy to back off, not gonna happen.

Miwa taking advantage of the other guy .... she doesn't even have to say she has a GF or disclosing her private life, she just have to tell the guy to back off, not gonna happen.

I guess you have forgotten about last chapter? At the party, this selfsame guy was yet again pestering Miwa with his advances, and Miwa showed him the finger and told him to go die in a hole. Pretty conclusive, right? But his reaction was to laugh it off while commenting "Ouch! Harsh but fair!" and now, one chapter later, he's at it again. This dude is thick like a plank, he just doesn't seem to understand the meaning of "Hell no!" and can't get a clue to save his life. It's not really Miwa's fault that he's so effing dense.

As for Kan, he's the worst chuunibyou character I've seen in a romantic comedy in a long time. Supercillious lone wolf act, always looking down on other people, only opens his mouth to tell everyone about their wrongs and mistakes... uugh. Guy needs to grow up and stop being a prick, fast.

Well yeah, I forgot about that (chapter 12 published in Sep 6, 2019 almost a year ago!) , here is the particular panel

I agree this dude is a pest, incapable of getting a clue, but this is not "pretty conclusive", Miwa is wasted and anyone could've taken this as drunk talk, the other Kan guy, never liked him, I recall him coming across as your typical douchebag, but regardless of him, I think our persistent dude showed romantic interest for Miwa since the beginning, she definitely notices and had plenty of time and opportunities to set him straight and reject him clearly but she didn't, anyway I should not be discussing this further cause it's been a long time between updates and I haven't re-read it so there could be other details I'm not remembering.

I can't figure out what's going on anymore.

That dude is getting annoying. I get it, she hasn't directly told him no its not gonna happen, but the signs are there and he can't take a hint.

Are we just going to skip over the cliffhanger from chapter 13?! Why?!

As far as chapter 14 goes, I was hoping this Usshi person would be ace. I guess she still could be but the jealousy with the band dude made it seem like she wasn't going to wind up ace after all. The heart to heart with Miwa was definitely cute but...

Idk, I don't understand why this chapter is where it is or why it is? Since when do we care about this character enough for her to have her own chapter, especially after that cliffhanger? Gah

joined Jun 1, 2016

it looks like she connected a bit with Miwa. I wonder if this is gonna follow the drama trope of developing feeling for her.

I still don't know what happened. We left off on a cliff-hanger last chapter, and then this chapter it doesn't take place at the same time and it's about a new character we were only somewhat invested in? I feel like I'm missing something,

It seems to take place JUST after whatever confrontation occured. Usshii asks if Miwa is okay, and notes she's drenched in sweat, and Miwa says it was a "difficult practice" which just seems a little bit deflecting.

I assume the events will be made clear later, that it is going to come up again for certain. Also that dude is definitely an asshole - not just for bitching at Miwa for being "annoying", which to me is just a way of saying "I just don't like you for no particular reason", but also first names inappropriately? That's pretty rude in Japan. Especially without any honorific, which seems like what he was doing (I don't have the raw to check). That's SUPER rude. Like using first name-chan can be taken as being rude depending, but no honorific probably rates higher on rudeness when used inappropriately.

It seemed like jealousy in the moment. But during her discussion with Miwa, Usshi's explanation leaned much more toward her being strongly repulsed by the idea of having to take part in a heteronormative relationship.

Not conclusive evidence that she's ace, but it leaves that door very much open (along with many other doors).

Holy- bro i really really love this manga series, i love the art, every page has so much details just from the clothing not to mention the background and the characters' facial reaction they seem so real, and also gotta appreciate those simplistic artstyle so cute, lol im not an art critique or anything I jus wanted to share how i feel with your work. Aside from the art, the plot of the manga is cute af and it makes me feel happy for the characters and also makes me feel sad knowing i probably wont find someone to love like in what i just read :((
Anyways, you guys have my full support please keep going! I live for this type of love ajkissvs.

Isn't ch14 almost random?! But I guess it shows Miwa's self-acceptance.. But interestingly Usshi is the most relatable for me. I love her notes trying to analyze why people needed to be in a relationship. Ugh, so real. I do that in my head! This chapter may get dislikes but I like it!

I kinda liked this chapter although we didn’t really get to see what miwa said but this chapter was relatable and real

I've definitely thought the same way as Usshii, so I appreciated this chapter from her perspective. The dialog in this is nice, doesn't read like your typical manga.

Like I said before: CHUUNIBYOU. Saying things like "I don't use nicknames" -- thinking it makes you look like a cool rebel -- is pretty much textbook.

Guy's so chuuni, one of these days he's gonna change his name to Grimdark the Mage Ninja.

Ikr? This author has a very personal art style, completely different from the "mainstream manga" type of art that you find just about everywhere. And the story, the characters and the narrative have a different feel too... in many ways, the whole work reminds me more of a college romance movie than a standard fare romcom manga.

By the way, I'm not sure if I got you right on this, but -- if you think the love story of Saeko and Miwa is doomed, let me assure you that it is not so! This is an original work, and even though the initial premise is similar to that of another manga by this author, whatever happens to the MCs in this story will not be conditioned by previous stories.

Personally, I can very much identify with Usshi. Like her, I have no desire to be in a relationship. I don't really get lonely and can't stand the idea of binding myself to another person.
That being said, a lack of desire for a relationship or sexual contact does not mean a lack of sexual or emotional desire. I do desire woman sexually and have on several occasions caught myself responding to the presence of woman and men around me.
It's like an instinctive, almost animalistic, territorial response to attractive woman and similarly aged men interacting while in proximity to me. A "back off she's mine" kinda feeling.

I'm foreseeing them getting closer as Miwa becomes a little more independent. Maybe it makes Saeko a little more needy though?
