Gaaaaay.

Anyway, Akira is so self-centered, it hurts.

Can't she think that Hime's behavior or preference may not have relations to her own predicaments?

It's a kinda understandable assumption to make considering how frequently Hime's actions have been related to Akira being transgender in the first place.

Yes but it's like we don't get any of Akira's struggles or perspectives.

Because this manga isn't about Akira. It's about Hime.

I'm really not sure how this is even supposed to be relevant to what I said at all.

Yeah! Aro time baby!

Also, out of all the cogent and sometimes confuddled advice in this manga gotta say that we've finally found the number 1 piece - Accept yourself. Love yourself for yourself not for anyone else.

I feel like every chapter there is conflict then some new side character giving either hime or Akira advice, it's getting pretty old pretty fast

I know others have said this, but the major themes and lessons of the story aren't really being figured out by the main characters. They aren't arriving to the revelations themselves through self-reflection. The main point of character development should be them realizing their mistakes themselves and changing because of their new understanding of themselves. Instead, other characters are basically telling the characters what they should be feeling and acting next, what the new lesson of the story is. By having other characters basically tell them how to react, it takes away the agency of the main characters. It just feels like the main characters are players in a video game, going through side quests that the NPCs give them and totally ignoring the main quest.

That being said, I am still going to be reading this manga, for some reason unknown to myself.

Well, Himes decision to cut her hair was her own. Then she was immediately spit on by the narrative of course.

I don't even remember this glasses dude

But yeah it seems like each character has some high minded life lesson to impart to the two nerds
Like this is still high school right? Bullshit that they'd all come up with that stuff at that age.

At least this time the lecture was actually correct and relatively concise.

It seems like nice glasses teacher is... really nice! And such advice is rare at any age. Of course he'll have some skeleton in his closet, but that's just optional I think.

I mean, it's unthinkable that a teenager in love for the first time gets all flustered and mixed up, right? Riiiight? All the characters are behaving pretty normally, it's just we're old now and have forgotten how WE were at that age. It seems so from some comments.

Hasegawa (aka: soccer boy) could go several ways: (I don't think spoilers are required)
- He's het, likes Hime a lot and is just a nice guy who's protective of Akira, and clueless about Akira's crush.
- He's gay, likes Akira "that way" and wants to talk with Hime about how to get closer to "him", or stuff.
- He's het, sees Akira as a girl, wants to talk to Hime about getting closer to her (Akira), is clueless about Hime's attraction/disgust, and also has a halo permanently floating over his head.
- He's a real jerk who's plotting something horrible and villainous to make both Hime and Akira cry (which might just bring their unspoken love out in the open, eh?)
- Other :-)

Have we figured out is Hime likes or hates Hasegawa yet? I vote: likes! But still loves Akira of course.

Oh now we have an aro.

What an interesting school.

We still don't have any gay man, but it shouldn't take long.

And we still have yet to be introduced to the obligatory asexual, pansexual, and demisexual characters

Hime: moves to Australia

Soccer senpai: I love nazi Bogans

I like how the teacher kept the same haircut that he had as a student throughout all these years.

Man, why do I keep thinking that a high school manga would be anything but high school melodrama?

Really hoping they keep that momo guy for a later chapter and that his existence isn't just a convenient advice dispenser. But then again, if he comes back, he'll likely be that anyway judging by how this manga's been up till now.

Considering how slow this manga moves it's probably going to be about 20 chapters until we see him again.
