I'm guessing she had fetched those in to get Koguma to wear? Or at least tease her about wearing?

That would definitely be worse than going commando. At least she can justifiably say that not having underwear was a stupid mistake, but people will assume there was deliberate intent if she's caught wearing those.

...Now I want to see if she could actually get Koguma to wear those...

So Hino brought her phone to take pictures of Koguma in her swimsuit, however she skipped out on the class. This leads us to two possibilities, either Hino was creeping on Koguma during class OR she was taking photos of Koguma in her swimsuit in private after class, in the infirmary.

Grammar question: would it be “caught wearing those, or “caught wearing that?

I've heard it said in all 3 ways regarding clothing. No idea if its correct but it also doesn't sound strange to ear so who knows lol. Frankenlanguage

From a purely grammatical standpoint, it’s “those.” A single article of underwear is referred to in the plural form in English for some reason (i.e. a pair of boxers or a pair of panties). “That” is used for singular nouns, while “those” is meant for plurals. “Them” could also technically work, but that word is generally used in reference to people, so it would come across as a bit odd unless you wished to personify the g-string.

...yep, this is probably the most value I’ve ever gotten out of that English degree...

And again, Hino being vague on her parents.Did they really live here and don't care that her daughter have a cold ? Are they dead ? Or did Hino has move from her hometown alone and her parents are in fact still at her hometown ?

They're definitely dead. Nagisa was in grade school, and the accident occurred on a cold and rainy day. She remembers the moment, when she was in class listening to her teacher's lesson, and the school principal suddenly entered unannounced, and called her name: https://dynasty-scans.com/chapters/hino_san_no_baka_ch45#3

Afterwards she seems to have sunk into a state of stoic, emotional impregnabilit; showing no outward signs of grief. But her grandmother saw through this facade, and convinced her to move away from her hometown and attend her grandmother's alma mater in an attempt to put distance between herself and visceral reminders of her parents and restart her life. She had a bit of money from an insurance payout or lawsuit settlement, which affords her an apartment and financial independence

Have to Love how Hino guessed the reason for Omichi's longer skirt, even if not the correct reason for her going commando. :D

The real question is why did Hino have those with her in the first place.

To try and get Koguma to wear them.

Obviously.

In common use either of them could work. Grammatically, however, I believe "those" would be truly correct, because the bottom piece of underwear is referred to in the plural.

I suppose it depends on whether it stands for panties ("those") or underwear ("that").

I was making a joke about the actual construction of the object—of course, underwear in the form of panties or boxers is “those” or “them,” but a chastity belt or garter would be “that.”

A legitimate question when the bag was opened would be, “WTF is that?” as opposed to “WTF are those?”

EDIT: I love the little apparent reinforcement in the “contact” area. Hino’s attention to detail is unparalleled.

I think that's the key to why it's so funny--I half-thought maybe cutesy panties with characters on them, or frilly lacey things, or, if I'd thought a little harder, crotchless.

I did not expect that/them.

EDIT: That's not even mentioning Hino's finely honed telepathic understanding of Omichi's predicament--she's tres formidable and hopelessly useless simultaneously.

The precisely matched layouts of pages 8 & 9 are a lovely touch.

"Those" may be the "normal", technically correct way to refer to the panties, so it's moderately neutral, but "that" implies "that thing", which has a lot more aversion to it.

Also, before she said "they" were brand new, I was sure she'd somehow gotten a hold of a pair of Koguma's worn panties... though that would be kind of out there, even for Hino.

Last page got me good.

@Arcane
Nice interpretation. I think I need to re-read it from the top one of these days.

Much respect. They play checkers while she plays chess.
