Anyway, I have to thank this chap for making me look up both Japan's economic history and Tokyo's minor protection laws. The things yuri can teach you.
I like that Canno's visibly having a ton of fun drawing these shorts. Their slightly absurd comedy is reminiscent of some of the early AnoKiss chapters, which is refreshing. You can also feel Canno is itching to explore a lewder side of yuri. X)
PS: By the way, page 6, second panel… Hazumi is totally copping a feel, isn't she.
how does a student have this much money tho
If reading manga has taught me anything, she probably has extremely rich and extremely neglectful parent(s) who compensate for their lack of involvement with her life with a ludicrous allowance.
This is more commonplace than you seem to think. Rich kids blowing huge amounts of money, meeting in fancy apartments to engage in whatever they feel like... source: The latest marriage in my family, and we aren't the rich ones (the wedding was insane).
note: It seems to be much easier to stumble into this sort of thing in places with distressing levels of inequality, like Bangkok.
In chapter 1 it says that she not only has a rich family, but has made her own money trading stocks, so she's most likely a day-trader or something like that and is quite good at it.
^ …Can a high-schooler even do that, legally? >.>
Yes, parents technically have signature control as they have to open the brokerage account ("custodial" or "guardian" accounts are designed for this), but children can trade stocks just fine.
