This is such a great chapter for many reasons but I think the comment in the credits really summed it up the best. Shiho seems interesting, would like to see more of what happened there if anything did happen

her mom holding the knife at the end feels vaguely threatening

i don't really remember the moment i figured out i wasn't ever gonna like boys, but media definitely played a role in it for me too. back in the era of the 10-minute video length limit on youtube i'd watch bootlegs of queer film in chunks. But I'm a Cheerleader, Bound, Fingersmith, D.E.B.S., Water Lillies, stuff like that.

Searching "girls kissing" on youtube--everyone did that, right?

Oh oh oh. Flashback arc starts.
It's obvious Shiho has lotsa secrets. Layers over layers of secrets. I'm afraid this is gonna be like the Miyuki flashback arc in 1 x ½... that is: after a few chapters all about Shiho, people are gonna start writing that they're utterly sick and tired of this flashback drama crap and wanna return to Saeko x Miwa now.

Say what you want about Predictive Lamenting—it’s an ethos. Or maybe an addiction.

This author has shown no signs at all of structuring the story the way it’s done in 1 x 1/2—at most Shiho has a vague resemblance to Miyuki in character design.

Not gonna lie.

Unless I'm hooked on a side character, I don't enjoy flashbacks involving side characters. There's one that I love in Hana Ni Arashi (the kinda-ex-love-interest senpai) and I liked that it was a balance of building exposition and then rolling it out. Many flashback arcs have been dragged on so painfully slowly that I understand why folks would rather scratch their eyeballs out than carry on reading the stuff.

Btw was that a real tv show that Miwa was watching? I don't think I know those characters.

Well, Glee was mentioned here. Maybe it's that show. I can't remember any American TV show that had a lesbian power couple in it and was taken seriously. Granted, it said "Western" but Glee had been such a worldwide phenomenon it had a Japanese dub.

Great chapter, kinda refreshing after everything going on and it's nice to see Miwa's past, especially since Saeko and Miwa literally don't tell each other anything..

I sure did! I would even even sneak to the computer when both my parents are sleeping and got busted once but I pretended I was playing MMORPG.

Are there any abbreviations(is this the right word?) for this manga?

Guess you could say "HDWR" ("How Do We Relationship", the licensed version's title) but both titles kind of suck and don't stick very well. Hopefully we'll figure out a better way to refer to it than the long ass names lol.

Trough if that's her old crush I hope she gets together with her old crush, she k looks so nice
And miwa looks good with her long hair, maybe a Lil better than short,

Strangely I think that weird car that was waiting was probably Shiho's adult lover...

"Shiho's written in a way that would sucker in a 16 year old" well I'm 19, so that's sorta close to 16 and she definitely has sucked me in. I'm really excited to see more of her character in this flashback and see how she's changed when it's over.

well Shiho's situation is a hard trigger that hits home for me, because I had been exactly her for the first 20 years of my life.....I just hope we find out that she had the nerve to pack up and leave, even if she had nothing to start a new life with at first...and actually Miwa's experience very relatable as well...
