Oh noes. The silent bullies turned into aggressive bullies.

Quick, someone call Nikaidou-san! Tell her that, once she's finished killing Kirigaya, there's a job for her here!

This isn't "interracial" whoever is calling it that is simply wrong.

You're obviously not aware of this, but the meaning of "race" varies greatly between cultures. Where I'm from, race is strongly related to phenotype. So, my wife and I are from Rio de Janeiro, born and raised. The last three generations of both our families are Brazilian too. My skin is light, hers is dark. Around here we're considered an interracial couple.

Please consider cultural differences before calling people wrong.

It is rude to bother people while they are eating. Those bullies are up for a beating.

Man I love everything about this but this release schedule is sadistic…

I'm surprised no one comments at how Furuka snubbed that flirting guy. X) I also like how Furuka still has that fuzzy-bubbly expression since the day before…

Furuka's tongue sticking out and Kon's expression are just adorable!

tiny x mouth is just too cute!

I just wanted to add that this manga is just my type! Cute girls, slow pace and actual plot. If one of them grows neko-ears suddenly? I'll really lose it :->

Furuka's freckles mark her as the true priestess of the cave monster, it's so obvious.

That would be concerning natural skin color though, wouldn’t it? If you look closely at some of the drawings, including the cover, you can see that she has tan lines under her swimsuit, so her skin tone is most likely similar to the other girls on the island and just tanned from constantly paying outside in the middle of summer on a southern Japanese island.

Wow, didn't expect this was Hattori Mitsuru. I thought the art seemed familiar but seeing the name threw me for a loop. I'm more used to his very digital style, like Concerto or Otogi no Machi no Rena. This has the look of pen on paper, whether or not it was done that way.

On the skin color thing, thatismyfetish.jpg, but also I think Japan is odd about this in many ways. Truth be told, Japan is not as monolithic as it seems, and there is a fairly wide range of "Japanese" skin tones. The various regions have strong identities to this day, more so even islands. The main is obviously tanned but I don't think the base assumption is that she's naturally pale either. On a more critical note, it's symbolic of country/city and adult/child (adults in Japan, especially women, usually avoid suntan like it is going to kill them - it's a social no-no). A natural tan with natural hair is as close as I can imagine to the epitome of uncool in Japan.

This is so new that I don't know what to expect, but I am looking forward to seeing where it goes with it in the end.

That's one way to read it. I perceived it otherwise. Particularly, lighter skinned people tend to get reddish sunburns, and don't tan as easily (you can see that on the cover). Also, even MC's tanlines don't seem that light.

Japanese media don't portay dark skinned people the same way that the West does. That's why Ursula LeGuin questioned Miyazaki's rendition of her Earthsea books. From her point of view, they had whitewashed her characters. Ghibli proceeded to explain that there is a cultural difference in skin representation, and that her characters would be perceived as black by a Japanese audience. Whether or not there was actual whitewashing is up to debate.

And one way or the other, in my country the characters from the cover would still be perceived as an interracial couple, much more often than not.

I... I heard the pillar men theme on the last panel since the three of them all had distinct poses. Maybe I need to cut back on the Jojo memes.

Oh I'm not the only one, thank god
