Im worried about the mom. What if she contacts Tazune and he snaps?

Considering it's Maki's mom, I don't see why she'd do that.

Oh, yeah, youre right.

I mean, I'm still a bit worried. We don't know where she stands on LGBT issues at all, and she clearly had no idea her daughter is gay. If she throws Maki out, that's gonna make for a rough situation for them.

Nah, last page has つづく, which basically means "to be continued". I imagine we'll get at least some portion of them establishing their life as a couple, dealing with parents, dealing with Midori's job, and so forth. They aren't out of the woods yet.

If they were trying to get me to feel bad for Tazune here, then it was a poor attempt.

I think it was an attempt to show there might be a chance to salvage him, that this might be his first step on a path to becoming a better person.

It was mentioned before that this manga has 16 chapters.

We are at 14 right now. Two more to go!

I don't think they are. Actually I think it is to show how manipulative he can be. He was trying to save himself. Also shows how much she grow up. She was caring about herself, her baby, her girlfriend, her future. He was just trying to save himself, he was saying her feelings were not important with the "this is not high school anymore". She apologize for not answering his feelings. She doesn't forgive him for hitting her. And the she finally accepts that she wants Maki.

I imagine 16 will be a peek at the future of our happy couple, so 15 will be tying up loose ends. We've still got at least Doumyou to see to, and hopefully we'll see Komari one more time.

Chapter 3 could have been just kissing, after the confession and a half.

Oh yeah! The scene where Tazune goes cry on Doumyou's shoulder and tells her that he broke up with Midori, and Doumyou thinks: "YES! I did it! I broke up Tazune and Lezzie! Now all I have to do is catch him on the rebound! Tazune will be MINE, bwahahahahaah! I'm such a winner at life!"

We definitely need a scene like that, yessir. xP

I dunno why folks still have it against Doumyou so hard, like shit she didn't like, immediately gossip about her coworker being gay or w/e, just told that coworker's fiancee that she was cheating on him which is why she was maybe gone longer than expected.

I'm really hoping Doumyou learns the truth about it from Midori or something and really makes Tazune miserable when Doumyou won't act as his rebound or w/e.

Walking around the city and taking photos of people who are in the middle of a physical display of affection is generally considered a jerk move.

Heck, if you're caught, there's a good chance you'll get a beating.

Claiming that you know those people and that they are cheating on someone else and that you took the pic because of this reason (to use it as evidence when/if you rat on them) actually makes it even worse.

I...don't see how? "These people are doing something that will hurt someone I care about" definitely seems like a better excuse then "i'unno, they gay?"

I mean, I'm not saying I agree with what she did, but I don't see how the reason makes it worse. It means she has a personal stake in what they're doing.

I mean, she served a function in the plot. "Necessary" is subjective, but she does illustrate how an outside perspective can be blind to the kind of abuse that goes on inside a relationship.

From her perspective, Midori is a smooth talker who swiped the guy she said she liked, possibly cheated on him with another woman. (and then skipped out on work to flounce around with her girlfriend, while not telling her fiancee where she is or when she's coming back.)

From our perspective, we know Midori was already dating Tazune (and having second thoughts) when Doumyou told her she liked him, and we know that after their relationship was "locked in" Tazune turned into an emotionally (and later physically) abusive shithead who drove Midori away, and that Maki is a sweet person who values Midori and cares for her in a way Tazune clearly doesn't.

Not saying Doumyou is a saint, mind you, she's definitely done some questionable things, but she also definitely has no reason to have a positive opinion of Midori at this point. She doesn't really have any way to know what an abusive dick Tazune is in private, either.

And this is pretty typical in a lot of abusive relationships. The abuser twists things around to hurt the reputation of the abused.

Don’t worry. She will. Komari will be appeared again talking with Midori’s kid

Thanks for the reply, Heavensrun! I agree with everything you said. Indeed, it seems like the author added Doumyou in order to add the outsider's perspective by highlighting how charming abusers can be to others and how the abused can become villainized in the eyes of friends and acquaintances of the abuser.

Nobody likes a snitch.

On page 32, after Tazune wiped the floor, the blood transferred from the floor to the paper he was holding. I think that is an interesting symbolism. Even though Tazune scrubs the blood from his floors, he cannot completely get rid of the blood. The evidence is still there, both physically, psychologically, and symbolically. Even though he makes excuses for his physical abuse and tries to apologize, he cannot erase the fact that he hit his wife. He can give off the illusion that he is a nice guy, but the truth of his abuse will still remain in the world. His actions to cover up the domestic violence will not be enough to undo it; they never will be.

Yeah, the symbolism was pretty cool... I’m glad the mangaka put that in. My opinion on that particular page is he basically sighed in relief that he’s done with the whole messy social obligations of being the reluctant father... he’s scott free and can resume his predatory ways. Aaaand I think doumyo will be in his sights: “The Dick Snatches the Snitch!”

Something I don't get: they're acting like it's the first time they make love, and Maki even says it's the first time someone who's not family sees her naked -- implying she's a virgin or something.

But I'm sure Maki, in chapter 1, seemed way more competent when it came to these matters. She met Midori again, and Midori kissed her on the mouth as a goodbye... and so, for their next date, Maki had her nails cut short -- which I read as a hint that she was expecting some good old second date sex.

And, in chapter 3, didn't they have sex that night? I mean, when they slept together at Maki's place? Or did I completely misunderstand everything about that scene???

She was saying it was the first time anyone has seen her that naked, as in completely naked in both the most emotionally and physically sense of vulnerability.

I still don't trust Midori.

I always get the impression she got Maki wrapped around her little finger and she's using her for her own convenience.
