Where's a good place to get one? I have a 60% keyboard that's pretty similar, but these seem cool. Also pretty cool that it's the brand Sakuma is using (that and the MacBook Air get pretty close to product placement tag territory)

I absolutely adore the way Ikeda-sensei writes this series. Some weeks we have high energy comedy, others we have angst and bittersweet romance, and some weeks we have chapters like this. Not much happened, but the little daily snapshots of life feel just as meaningful as everything else. Sometimes there isn’t much happening, and that’s okay.

I have a Sades V2020 Bluetooth keyboard for my iPad. It’s great.

This is the sort of healing manga I live for.

I admire Sakuma’s work ethic, but I don’t know how she can concentrate knowing her super cute girlfriend is lying right behind her with nothing to do.

Shouldn't the doll-like German loli who just wanted to do karate from one of the author's previous series have tipped you off?

Good lord. This whole time I had never made the connection with Sasameki Koto, despite having been amazingly fond of it back in the day. Realizing it's that mangaka feels weird.
I must say, rather clever of Ikeda Takashi to write something that neatly sidesteps her main weakness as a writer. That is, Sasameki Koto was fundamentally a manga with standard romance plot arcs, except she tended to kind of lose control and have them meander off into nothing much going on while people got impatient waiting for her to pick up the threads again. With "The Two of Them Are Pretty Much Like This" she has a total slice-of-life where the main pair are already an established couple with no major conflicts, so she doesn't have to try to maintain control of any plot arcs--there aren't any. She can concentrate on characters, art, and great little "bits".

Ikeda Takashi is a man (Takashi is generally a man's name, FWIW. It's easy to get confused because all of his most well-known series (Sasameki Koto, 34-sai Mushoku-san, this) feature female protagonists, even when the stories aren't yuri.

Well, thanks. Doing fine. Recently celebrated 25th marriage anniversary. Just got my vaccination.
To be perfectly honest, I was mostly hanging at Mangadex, but it's currently toast, so . . .

I kinda felt like Ushio's big brother in Sasameki Koto was his self-insert, being a writer and her pillar of support.

So does Sakuma have to start calling her Wako now? Is Wanko a name dead to the world?

Apologies in advance if the next chapter turns out to be a play on the word 落 that doesn't translate well into English.
