This latest chapter reminded me of the book Sideways Stories from Wayside School, which I read when I was in elementary school. It's about a school that was built sideways and the antics its kids get up to.

Now it's like a mixture of Flip Flappers, Haibane Renmei and Girls Last Tour.

I hope this gets an animation some day.

I love the more abstract chapters, but I think the simple ones like this one that just show Shijima getting a bit less cold (ironically) and aloof are also very important, and of course it's just really cute to see her and Majime getting closer. I wonder if the sudden snow is an effect of Shijima's sister's new mysterious contraption.

The simplest explanations are usually the ones that are right, I think this chapter is just a Yuru Camp reference because Egg is voiced by Nadeshiko in Kadokawa's youtube channel.

GLT flashbacks. Good thing they didn't get far from home. Shimeji's/Majime's dream was unfortunately relatable.

Wasn't that a THE END kaiji at that last panel?

If you mean つづく, it means "continued".

Don't you want to just try that "you'll die in your sleep" thing once in your life?

I'm still crossing my fingers for the Girl's Last Tour anime adaption to be completed, but I would love to see this done justice in a proper adaption as well.

It's rare to see niche stuff get the love it deserves but every once in a while the stars align and it happens.

Mhyeah ... this all makes sense ... the snow ... clearly stands for ... um ... yes. Gestaltzerfall. And the asparagus is a metaphor for ... youthful sexuality. Surely. Yes, it's all becoming clear.

Are that beer can and that donut stuck to permanently stuck to the heads of the teacher and Sumida now? Probably not, but I wouldn't be surprised either way. I really hope to see this animated someday.

By the way, the mangaka panpanya makes short stories with a really similar vibe to this series. An Invitation from a Crab is a good collection that's available in English.

That last page is really touching in a way that I can't quite pin down.

Came for parallel world OG potato girls, stayed for surrealist masterpiece + new potato girls

Following chapters contain Chito and/or Yuuri:
4, 5, 7, 13 (especially), 17 (literally one panel), and 23 (I’m under the belief that the moon was created by either Yuuri or Chito)
