IT IS BACK. Seriously tho, I know some scanlator replied to a message of mine on the Discord that said I'm still holding out hope for more of this by saying that they have picked it up, but I didn't expect to see a chapter here on the very next day. Amazing. Thank you.
Maybe it is reflective of her newfound ability to use love-related terminology more, but even that is strange. Maybe we'll get more about her weird use of terms in future chapters, idk. (Or I wonder if the official translation will differ here.)
Anyway, at the beginning of the series it seems like Hinako is aromantic and asexual. Now, it seems like Hinako may be romantically into Asahi while Asahi is romantically and sexually into Hinako. But it still isn't completely clear; Hinako might be sexually into Asahi too. I suspect the last few chapters will clarify that.
I understood nothing of what you said 0.0 I only know of the friend having some interest in one of the characters but the asexual or aromantic thing tied to any of the two MC??? eh? were did they come from???
Hinako has only shown an aversion to dating and having intimate physical contact with men. This seemingly exacerbated by her mother's incessant criticism and pressure on her to find a man and get married so she can "finally do something" with her life. However, she clearly has a natural affinity for women where neither aversion has been shown to exist.
As for Asahi, there's little to go on, but she doesn't appear averse to the typical romantic development either. It's more that her family trauma and zealous and selfless care towards her sister has left her own feelings or desires unexplored.
That said and regardless of labels, they're both going at their own paces to discover love for themselves on their own terms while being compassionate to one another. And I'll leave it at that.
