I only care about Amane at this point. Fuck kou and nene, as well as senpai.

God, do people really think so porly of Nene ?

She's spent much of the series so far giving ample reason to you know. And the big reveal that all the shit she's heaped on Amane is, basically, entirely due to her inner demons didn't particularly help.

I blame the author for that. You could have easily put the mastermind on the Senpai but nope, stick to Nene and making her the biggest bitch possible. Senpai don't even have a reason to exist since evrything could have happen without her. She just could have been a random person without any relation the MC. Why make her Amane's childhood friend, why make her jealous of the relation ? Why make her doing that if in the end you stick to put all the problems into Nene ?

Now you're just being irrationally defensive.

Shifting the responsibility from Nene to someone else would be a cheap way out. Making Nene fully responsible of her shitty attitude and bad treatment of others was actually a piece of good writing. The author deserves kudos for this. Good job, author-san.

And as for sempai... wanna bet the complication to Nene starting to mend fences is that last chapter she finally managed to burn her bridges with Amane (last straws etc.) and Hayama, being basically the only shoulder she has left to cry on, caught the rebound?

I'm just bad at defending characters who are made bad by the author. How i'm suposs to defend Nene at this point ? I like Nene but the author keep insisting at making her worse every second so i ended making blame on what i can ¯_(ツ)_/¯ .

Edit : I know you gonna say but just don't defend her and yeah i should do that but i'm too stupid to stop myself.

Things is, you're not supposed to defend her. You're just supposed to accept that she did wrong and hope she will manage to make amends before it's too late (provided it's not too late already).

The technical term is "scapegoating" or "passing the buck". I agree with Kazu above; laying it squarely on Nene instead of taking the usual easy way out of supplying a third-party villain responsible is downright refreshing variety.

I'm curious to see what her next step will be now that Kou managed to get her to owe up to her own feelings and the proverbial scales are off her eyes.

Yeah but i feel like the purpose of the Senpai is still off. Yes she can be her childhood friend but why does she have be in love in such a twisted way. Couldn't she just have been a normal childhood friend ?

(provided it's not too late already).

Wanna bet Amane gonna forgive Nene as soon as she heard Nene said she still love her ? I haven't much to lose tho.

I'm not sure it's gonna be that simple. I think Senpai is gonna try to win Amane over now. If Nene eventually decides she wants Amane back, she'll probably have to face Senpai.

Time to use this useful virgin JK name Kou to distract Senpai from Amane.

As far as we know so far she likely used to be normal enough - if anything it probably was, ironically enough, Amane coming to her in tears after that abrupt breakup that woke her inner you're pretty when you cry yandere. Now suppose Amane's finally given up on Nene and gone to her for comfort; ya reckon Hayama's the sort to just give her back when Nene and Kou come apologise...?

Didn't think so.

And everything we've been shown of how she is now suggests she isn't going to have too many scruples about emotionally manipulating a doubtless deeply hurt and now distrustful Amane into sticking by her...

^ I like that scenario. I wouldn't want Nene to get Amane back without making any effort. I think it would be better if she had to fight for it, if she had to go above and beyond to win Amane back.

So here my two cent on this. first off Amane desure so much better man she did noting too get what she got. second I think Amane is going to go to lizard-Senpai (caling here that because I don't rember her name) after seeing her friend hook up with her ex and I think lizard-senpai going to go after her because I think we can all see that lizard-senpai has something for her, if that the case then nene is going to be piss.Cuz there is no way Amane and nene are just going to get back together will all know that. (p.s sorry if I misspell anything)

I find it hard to sympathize with Nene, though I do feel a little bad for her. Girl needs to get her demons in check before she really enters the point of no return. Senpai ain't just sitting around waiting for some competition to end victoriously before she does something. Leaving Amane to get slowly tortured while you two basically death flag yourselves just makes me shake my head.

I don't think we're supposed to. She's so petty and immature. I understand where she's coming from but there's no way I can sympathize.

Is there something in the freaking water around there that results in psychologically abusive adults (“You’re prettier when you don’t smile”—who the fuck says that to a child?) and yandere high schoolers (“Cry. Cry. Cry. Suffer. Because only then are you mine alone.”) and middle schoolers (“I wish Amane was as ugly as shit.”).

I’m not sure little Kou is up to an entire community makeover . . .

I'm going to make a wild guess and predict we're in for some heavy character developement now that she's had her long overdue satori. Likely punctuated by copious amounts of not exactly unjustified self-loathing and regrets; I figure Kou's going to have her hands full keeping Nene from imploding completely while they try to square things with Amane.

Turns out they live in Silent Hill, Japan.

Have I mentioned that this manga, aside from being good, is one giant circle of affections?
Kou->That photography club girl->Amane->Nene->back to Kou and so on.

  1. They're kids
  2. It's pretty responsible to not be around someone for fear of being toxic.
