The black border all through the story makes me a little uncomfortable, and the dialogue on eg. page 139 doesn't help.

Anyway thanks so much for picking these up again for translation!

16! I totally thought they were adults living together. Thats what happens when you don't read the tags I guess!

Very cute though

Right? I was dreading some tragic plot twist, like one of them was dead or something. Thankfully we just got some cute fluff. ^^

I think there has to be some meaning behind it. My first thought was "they were childhood friends but the blonde died years ago", but on page 131 we're told the blonde didn't know her as a kid. Now I think it might be the bubble-blower's dream or wishful thinking about a long-gone crush to whom she was never more than just another girl in the same class/grade/school.

Honestly though, i don't think that goes in line with the two extra pages after the end. In the story she talks about how she saw a puddle the previous day and it reminded her of bubbles etc., and in the 2 extra pages -which seem to set a present scene since it doesn't have any black borders- you can see her looking at a puddle, with blondie behind her looking at her. The weird thing is that they're walking seperately, so the story is set either the next day which would mean they're a couple (but they keep their distance at school or idk), or it's current wishful thinking by either of the two, but who knows they might still become a couple in the future. Or it might be the artist's wishful thinking out of a single set scene (the two extra pages) or maybe something else who knows.
Or the black borders were just some aesthetic choice idk we shall never know.... Unless... SEQUEL/PREQUEL

I know you're all having fun reading into the black backgrounds but just my two cents, they were simply an odd aesthetic choice. they're on every page except the last one, pretty sure she was just trying to emphasize how it was dark outside/set the pensive mood.

that being said, this volume was re-released in 2018, as well as her first anthology collection Kimi-Iro Shoujo. If you're interested, you can purchase it here: https://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/4758078696

Why should you buy it? Well, it includes a totally new oneshot as well as bonus content for this story :) i could be tempted into buying and scanning it despite already owning the original release, if i knew it would help support the author...

I'm glad that I was finally able to see the end of this pretty great compilation of stories

As for the story itself I really loved it, what a heartwarming way to bring it all to a close

I'd love to know what the bonus content for Shabon is, not to mention the new oneshot! If only I could read Japanese...

If you've read the other stories in this collection, you should know... this author likes fluff, not tragedy.

Yay a gay rainbow at the end

Of course the black borders disappear on page 114, eh? When the rainbow appears! :-)

Cute, sweet, happy lesbians being happy... needs a new tag: happy lesbians eh? There might be 2-3 stories on Dynasty that also qualify.
