Yknow I kinda have to agree with people on this one, it was funny at first but now Mai is just being a pain in the ass.

Well, but maybe it's because Mai doesn't have a clear reason why she likes Renako, having a bunch of people that can be way more compatible with her, her intentions can be seen as just a game.

There’s no way I can have a lover! Or maybe there is?

Hey, Vsauce. Michael here. What is a lover?...-ly story like this doing in my inbox? In fact, what is my inbox? How do I know it even exists? I can’t put papers in it, I can’t touch it, so how do I know that it’s real? Is it a place? Where is it? Well, it’s in my mind—I’m reading it, so my brain puts the pixels into words, and the words into a message—but it‘s also somewhere out there on a server. But if I’m imagining it on a server, it’s also on a server... in my mind. In fact, you might even say I can’t really think of the server it’s on at all, if

Reading this story feels like I'm reading some generic shoujo manga from early '10s, where the narcissistic and "smooth" bishounen forces different interactions on the confused, airheaded mc, until she eventually falls for him. And I really don't know how to feel about that. I mean, it's yuri, and that definitely makes things look much better to my hypocritical ass, but still, it's a little...uh. Idk man.

Will the Manga be translated further in the future or was it dropped?

Same here. I'm all for confident, competent, badass lesbians who know what they want, but it feels like the author just straight-up made Mai a Mary Sue, and when the editor told them to put in some humanizing flaws, they just scribbled in 'dubious respect for boundaries'. It's doubly sad because the premise of friends-one-day, lovers-the-next is honestly gold, and has so much potential for exploring the implications of affection, romance, the dreaded two-girl-friendship, the terrors of commitment and the way such an ambiguously romantic relationship would be perceived by the rest of the girls. But the execution so far has been incredibly lackluster. You know a romantic dynamic is flawed when it actively reduces the appeal of both characters involved. I would've much rather seen our MC just having a regular school life for a while before she realizes that some of her friends are into each other and wonders where the line between friendship and love is, and Mai would've also been a lot more interesting as the school beauty who's nice to everyone and romantically interested in no one, before the two finally meet up, become friends and realize their feelings for each other.

Then again, that would just be Bloom Into You reloaded, but the author's decision to take two similar archetypes and just speedrun the relationship with an extra dose of comedy ironically makes this series feel even less original. I still love the art and some of the humor, but unless these two have a proper conversation that isn't just Mai sparkling while the MC screams about how insufferable she is, I honestly can't see this series going anywhere good.

Okay I wasn't crazy for thinking that this felt like Bloom into You, even to the art style

Don't know about you, but it feels to me like nothing really happened in this chapter :P The main premise of the series (with the alternating relationships) goes on for 4 chapters already, and no payoff of any sort in sight... I'm a bit underwhelmed but I'm curious enough about where does this concept will finally go.

I agree. While this chapter did at least shed some light on the 'best friends' side of the deal and also featured Mai displaying more personality than her standard glowing lesbian Christmas tree gimmick, it was also way too short. Contrasts weirdly with the first chapter, which moved like greased lightning. I think it might be because the series is adapted from an LN, and the manga author's having trouble balancing the internal aspects of their personalities and the external aspects in terms of the actual plot. There's bits and pieces of potential, but the story just refuses to click.
