It doesn't help that Japanese architecture still seems to equate 'wall' with 'a paper-thin surface that separates space'. If someone were banging on my neighbors door ... I might hear it if I was absolutely quiet, but probably not otherwise. In Japan, the entire neighborhood inevitably hears the argument ;)

And that's without the gossiping housewives.

The biggest problem with just giving him money to go away is that he has no reason to believe that she won't just give him money again he if comes and bothers her again. Yeah, she threatened him, but if threatening him was enough to make him stay away, then why give him money in the first place?

Even the toughest gangsta threats come with a "I'll make it worth your while" clause. Something to incentivise them to choose the "not die horribly" option. He has still lost substantially more than he's received and, give or take the slim chance of him going crazy and seeking revenge, he won't be coming back, particularly since all the money he's been taking from Nagi is to fund his music career, which Nagi's secrets would destroy in an instant.

So....is it just me, or did pretty much nothing of any significance happen this chapter? Just: dude shows up, inconsequential thing happens, dude leaves. The most notable thing that happened was we found out that Nagi is a mafia princess, and even that was more or less an afterthought.

Chihiro stands up for her pet, which she certainly wouldn't have been able to at the start of the series. Nagi gets closure on a part of her dark past that she probably couldn't have done on her own. Scumbag gets put in his place and utterly humiliated. I'd say those are pretty significant things.

What do you consider as significant, then? sex?

^ Did you miss the part where she run away from him because he's a scumbag?

Do you think he was ever not a scumbag? Do you think maybe the obsessive stalker has other issues?

It's irrelevant? I'd understand if you assumed that she left him for no reason and there's chance she might repeat it with Nagi. But we're clearly shown that she had good reasons to cut all contact with him, so I don't think there's any fear of her doing the same thing to Nagi.

This guy is so bad is like he came from some Korean manwha... I mean, don't get me wrong is just that out of like 5 I've read there's like 3 of them with beyond disgusting assholes

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks manhwa are weirdly full of extremely shitty and scummy male characters. It's part of why I don't enjoy them.

I was beginning to think it was just my imagination.

^ I think everyone is turned up to eleven in manhwas, male or female. They go for the most extreme drama possible.

Erm, no it wasn't. Dude got completely wrecked.

He got exactly what he wanted with no real downside.

He wanted a bottomless bank account with boobs attached. What he got was a one-off pity payment, the shame of being owned by an introvert and the fear of someone ruining his life if he even tries asking for more again. That is the total opposite of getting exactly what he wanted with no real downside.

Yeah if everything goes well, we won't see him again ... But I think we can all agree that he got it easy considering all the things he did.

Literally none of that is a meaningful detriment to him in any way. He got 10k and all it cost him was some insults and vague threats with dubious teeth.

He's a musician. Musicians kinda depend on, y'know, people not going public that you're a scumbag who mooches money off of women and punched his ex in this face. Even without dialogue, you can tell from his expressions between the start of the chapter and the end that pretty much everything but the money is a meaningful detriment to him. At the start, he's an asshole looking to get his bitch back. At the end, he's the bitch.

I was hoping there will be more than just throwing the money to the guy. Kinda disappointed.

I... really enjoy this holy shit. I want another 100 chapters. It's so good I love their mechanics and the weird and dubious balance of power in both directions. A+

I keep waiting for it to go dark, but to my delight, it's very good and happy!

That helicopter ending has sure a pretty unlucky timing with the Kobe Bryan death.
