Heh, the school couple on page 16 and 17 make me really notice how similar Nanoha and Chidori from Hana Ni Arashi are to Akko and Mari from Girl Friends cause seeing them made me think of both couples.

Could someone explain to me why everyone in this series is talking about the importance of getting married in the Heisei era? Is this some Japanese custom I've never heard of?

The best chapter in the Just You and I anthology. The message it is sending is truly meaningful.

^^ Everyone? Only Yashima in the first story says that, because she doesn't want to be single at 30.

But damn Kawauchi's story hit me in the feels.

i like how one of the themes in this anthology is progression: from past views, from past fears and on changing views. i realize change happens slowly, but i hope this anthology is one of many that chronicles that change.

KareKano es my #1 romance manga ever!! you should read it, it is super good!!, the anime is just a tiny bit of the story, damn I love that manga.

The other two stories were kinda 'meh', but this one was beautiful.
(I miss KareKano..it's a shame the anime went nowhere.)

Is there a variant of bittersweet, ie something starts out feeling both nice and kinda bitter at the same time, but then everything ends up better than expected and you're left feeling good about the future? Because that's how this story made me feel.
That and nostalgic for the late nineties.

This was adorable and sweet, I hope more people start to be more proud of who they are and set a proud example for everyone to see and help lgbt community get normalized everywhere.

"Sweetbitter" maybe? :P

I think the main reason I loved this one is it was a continuation from their dating in high school. A lot of people are pessimistic and think girls dating in high school will get over their "gay phase" and break up. Glad to see this high school couple's still going strong <3

Is because of the new japanese empereor that took the title on april of this year, everytime that there is a change of empereor in japan is considered a change of era, and those eras are named after the empereor in position on those years

Haha, they took the initials HKY and slapped "English words that sounded cool" onto them...resulting in the glorious "Hyper Kettle Yesterday" for their group name. I love it.

That was nice to see. Hope the n64 mini rumor turns out to be true. If not this e3 then someday.

This was a lovely story.

Couldn't agree more, I came here to post the same.

They break out the manga, and I had complete versions of 3 of the 4 (karekano, ccs, and furuba). I think I sold Karekano years ago, though. Oddly in a mix of languages, I have the first half of CCS in German, which I can no longer read, the second half in English, and Fruits Basket in Japanese.

Which also is kinda nice, otaku culture worldwide!
