Typo on page 9, first panel: The past participle of "lead" is "led", not "lead".

Tell Shimizu you love her.

I can't bring myself to care at all for the mangaka-vs-editor storyline. It reminds me of a quip I heard once about how touring makes comedians' jokes eventually revolve around flying and hotels.

While this is a terrific point I and I totally get, it I'm still very much the opposite. I think this is a very interesting path and is so much of what this story has been about. The pointed questions from the editor really strike at the heart of Maekawa's problems. Shimizu trying to help her work through it is sweet and I like that Shimizu being her girlfriend doesn't automatically solve this issue as I feel other stories might imply.

Makekawa has, in fact, not told Shimizu she loves her. The score is two to zero now. Considering how much of a big deal she make out of not getting to close to the people she use to date, watching her make this next step is sure to be a lot of fun.

Not really related but I know what it's like to have a story you don't know how to finish. Add to this that's rare that I can't finish a story. (I'm not saying my stories are good but I can pretty much always finish them!) I tell myself I'm willing to tear it down and rebuilt it from the ground up as long as the spirit remains but I I'm not even sure what that spirit is suppose to be anymore. It went through several iterations over a decade and a half. And my ideas about stories were different at different times so . . . ugh. ^^;

It’s kinda nice to see a yuri manga where the central drama isn’t around the protagonists relationship, so we get two see these two dorks just be a couple while the plot continues to be engaging

Yeah! I long for the day where yuri will be so common that we'll get more stories like this.

Oh god I sense angst. And like, with good reason, she's already anxious about her relationship and her girlfriend bailing on a night together (that she was hoping could help patch things up) to spend time with the person she's anxious about her girlfriend spending time with... yeah, I get it. Like, it'd be better if she didn't, but I can see exactly what's coming.

I’m getting burned out on this manga.

I’ll suggest an “aaangst” tag and be done with this.

heh. I love the humor. Maekwawa is such a treat. And really probably is a freakin cat!

The serious stuff is good too, of course. All the new little points are interesting. What is the editor cooking up here? This other mangaka got her break from the opening Maekawa left. She doesn't' seem to care but is the editor forcing a meeting between the two anyway?

Ooooh so that's why the translation team said we might hate him hahahaha... Well, I'm sure they'll work things out.

But for me, the highlight of today were these golden lines

It's perfect... It's me, it's you... It's us, this is what keeps us together. Our joy and our pain, Oh, so beautiful pain

And yeah Maekawa is 99% a cat, it all makes sense now

I don't think they were ever in a chapter, but my memory isn't that great.

From what I remember, she hasn't said any of these lines in the manga.

I'm nor sure if she has said these exact lines but they certainly paraphrase and summarize things she has said before.

It's paraphrases, but Chapter 3 is one place where Maekawa puts out a lot of those lines.

Maekawa's manga part of the story is brilliantly connected with their relationship.
This is one of the very few mangas that actually explore what happens after they start dating. The doubts are still there, and I think it's pretty hard to maintain the problems/flaws the characters had before dating, and apply them in the dating phase as well.

It's perfectly reasonable of why Shimizu is worried, knowing Maekawa's character. Also why she holds back on the intimacy.

I also think Toudou's character theme is pretty smart. He could very easily derail the story and make it boring, but adding that weird aspect of him taking things too far with the research, has an effect on the rest of the characters and helps us in exploring the two mains. That's the right way to add a secondary character without them ending up as a filler. Saburuta could learn something here.

I don't think it's meant to be a paraphrase, but something Maekawa probably said "off-camera". She never mentioned anything similar about sleeping around before, yet it's there now.
