The anthology delivers!! Akane x Rikka, as the director wished!

Chapter one was the "Disaster Lesbian Akane Show!" and I loved it!! Followed by Rikka being top tier girlfriend material, with Akane almost killing herself for upsetting Rikka, before realizing a better use for her sepuko knife. And ending with "Disaster Lesbian 2: The return of Akane's revenge. The Reckoning!"

Kinda wish the whole anthology was focused n their relationship, but this was super enjoyable, here's hoping for so much more content for this ship!

So how much interaction do they have in the anime anyway?

No romance sadly (the company responsible didn't let the creators follow through with it), but the subtext is pretty visible, you can clearly see that as close to the guys as she is, Rikka really mostly cares about Akane, and pretty much all that matters to Akane is Rikka.

Just wondering do most chapters focus on AkanexRikka or there are some that are het? if there is no het then this and combined with the hints from the anime we can safely conclude that this ship is canon. at least that's what the creators want. still, don't know why they didn't make it obvious in the anime.

DC3, there is no het in the anthology. All the other chapters are SoL comedy stuff that focuses on Akane interacting with other characters, like Alexis and Anti.
Well, there is one 3 page chapter where Akane falls asleep in class and has a dream where Hibiki sexually assaults her. But I hardly think that counts as her being romantically attached to him.

While i do believe it, do you have a source on that?

Why I have a feeling that story #13 is written by Kodama Naoko under some fancy name? Overall it’s nice anthology.

I liked the one where Akane couldn't insult Rikka or be mean to her. That was just too cute.

Sorry for not seeing this question before, I don't really have a source, that's what I was told, but I've seen more people her in dynasty talk about this as well, so I'm pretty confident it's true.

On another note, Akane there in chapter 4 was down right ready to commit sepuku with that knife when she realized she made Rikka cry. Damn girl.
