And I do think this relationship brought some needed color to Uno-san. Hopefully, the author will add more depth to her character; as much as I like what I've seen so far, she's still paper thin to me (mainly a person on whom the MC is fixated).

I assume this is in reference to Satou-san, not Uno-san, judging by your last sentence?

In which case, I would've agreed prior to chapter 3, but I think chapter 3 told us quite a lot about her in very little time. We get to know her family circumstances, her apparent dedication to raising her sister, and presumably as a result, her not wanting to invite the idea of "falling in love" into her life. We see that she puts on a bit of a facade at work, same as Uno-san. We see that she's surprisingly interested in Uno-san as well, and is unusually thoughtful toward her (relative to how she normally is, according to Subaru). We see that she probably has some emotional issues to work through, given how some of the same signs of depression that are present in Uno-san (lack of motivation to clean her room) are present in Satou-san as well.

She hasn't had a ton of focus thus far, and I'd like to see her character be further fleshed out, but I don't think it's fair to call her paper thin, either.

I agree, she was a tpical laconic character before this chapter but some things changed with chap 3.

I feel like her family situation has deep meaning on the way she acts, and the fact that imotou was not surprised by Uno-san being a woman tells me that maybe, satou has already adressed it with her, maybe with her late parents too.

Satou reminds me of Akashi-san from The Tatami Galaxy a bit, the hair and the personality. Anyone else?

I can't believe how absolutely relatable this series is, I'd love to see more of it.

Lol weird how they both happened to be at the same time in that grocery shop and the little sister seemed to immediately recognize Uno from the dropped ID

India is extremely open about this stuff

Just letting you know India is not at all open about sexuality, or anything progressive, I guess.
The law that made homosexuality illegal was only abolished in September 2018, barely passed the 1 year milestone :'(

It's already been established that they live near each other. That's why Satou ran across her at the bench in the first place.

Hey can someone explain to me what do the black page backgrounds signify?
They seems as if they are random

Looks mostly like the author is using it to show passage of time. Panel backgrounds go dark at sundown and light at sunup. That accounts for most of it, but the author also mixes i some moments here and there where the character's mood brightens the night or darkens the day. By and large it mostly looks like the night/day cycle is the main element. It's kind of an interesting trick, actually.

That's how I'm interpreting it as well. It can be a bit confusing at first as black borders are traditionally used to indicate flashbacks, but I don't she's used it for that purpose so far.

And that is psychology 101!
The support of others is what helps the most in pretty much all situations, it makes you feel apreciated and accepted.

Such a simple yet efective show of this.

Ah, hallucinating people calling your name? That’s a pretty bad sign of PTSD. I’m getting the sense that her parents are probably even worse than most people are expecting.

I'm no expert, but I'd wager that is not a strong sign of PTSD. If it was, Bella from Twilight had an extremely severe case of PTSD.

I've often had times where I think I hear people talking, especially when it's silent for a while and then suddenly there is faint noise. I don't think it's particularly meaningful. In this case I think she was just thinking about Satou-san, heard something, and her brain instinctively processed it as Satou-san's voice, before realizing it was just the wind.

I'm not complaining about it at all, but there seems to be an uptick in OL and Adult Life yuri lately.

I feel blessed. It's so refreshing and perfectly coincides with my life trajectory.

I could not agree more.

Uncooperative and unpleasant. Satou has an interesting way of calling herself perfect. ;3

I love this pacing.

And the way soceital pressure is depicted. Most people think they are doing right by the main character and mean well but they mess'n up. Then there is the boss who seems to literally be from another era.
