@Nene thank you that helped me get a handle on what was going on quite well.

Please let there be another chapter with Satou and Miki again. Also, some with Kanako. I doubt it will happen though

Hey look at that! I'm happy that Kana realized that she was in love and hope the one she may have with Mao lasts

It's quite possible. After all, their stories haven't been conclusively wrapped up: Miki hasn't accepted Satou's love (she hasn't even noticed it yet iirc) and Kana x Mao is only a prospect that is suggested in the last page of Kana's chapter.

Time will tell.

I wonder how much more there will be. This strikes me as one of those one volume manga

Huh this is... pretty unrelated from the earlier series. Like, a bit, but idk, it was all kind of disconnected, a bit closer to a series of oneshots or a collection than a single manga. With a few of the oneshots being sequels.

This was cute and all, but I keep forgetting who is who since all the couples are black-hair x light-hair and have similar faces.

I'm always a little bummed when a character like Ao-chan gets a day in the lime light to suffer. Like, exploring her regret is great and all, but she deserves love too~

Also, I like me a pragmatic gyaru who can get down to business lol

Aww I wanted to see how kotoko's friends would react.

Don't mess with a girl's authority kink "Class Rep".

This series suffers from a serious case of same face and it makes it really hard to follow it as an anthology of couples.

Other than the one with Ao-chan, this chapter dump has made me love this series so much more. I like the messy girl one the best though, followed by the blackmail one, and lastly the afterward
Edit: I also just noticed the Cotton Candy image at the end, which is one of my favorite re-reads. Thank u for that

Even more Girls' Arcadia!? Awesome! I loved the new installments. Follow-up with the main couple - great! Catching up with the former best friend - also great (not too angsty for my liking)! New, adult life couple - so good (although class rep might've benefitted from the glasses when not working)! And lastly, the (too) rare and elusive gyaru yuri, something we definitely need more of - excellent (though too short). Overall, if this is it, it was a great ride and I hope the author revisits at least the side couples at some point down the road.

@Beefaroni and @Kinnikufan, I couldn't agree more.

This book has made me a giant fan of Yatosaki Haru. I knew her only for her short doujins, I had no idea she could do SO WELL with a longer story! I'm really impressed.

I hope we'll get more Mao and Kana and Satou and Miki in future books. Those girls need their happy endings...

I kind of doubt it. The point of those two stories was that there was one character (one in each) who needed to realize they were in love. To be precise, Satou and Kana. At the end of the stories, Satou realizes she's in love with Miki and Kana realizes (really bittersweet, this one) that she had always loved Yoriko but, by realizing it too late, has screwed up any real chances she could have had with her. But, hey, there's always Mao... perhaps now Kana will be able to have a real romance with her?
Imho the author considers the main point of both tales solved, and it's unlikely that she will return to them.. (except if fans demand it really loudly, in which case, maybe?)

Cute! Nice little epilogue to let everyone know these two will be just fine.

I liked it but I agree with the same face critiques

It's hard to get angry at someone for stealing your clothes when they look so hot in them, yup yup.

A cute little detail I just noticed on a reread is that the first few times we see Tsutsuji smoking in Kotoko's apartment, she's smoking a cigarette out on the balcony. By the time we get to the afterword, she's moved on to a vape, without the story ever drawing any attention to that fact. She may be messy and a little clueless at reading others' emotions, but she's still paying attention. This collection reminds me of Haru Akyama's stuff (Octave, Me and Sakuma) in a good way.

Wait, so Ami-chan's Diary is set in the same universe as this?

I think so, since Kotoko knows a character from Ami-Chan’s Diary. But maybe The Girls Arcadia takes place in a later timeline since all the character’s shown (and maybe have yet to appear like Aoi) are in high school and Kotoko is already in college. Or maybe this Aoi character is just older than the main character’s in Ami-Chan’s Diary… Either way it’s interesting and shared universes are always a plus.
