Mai definitely has better chances to torn this into a proper romance on their friends days. The atmosphere with them playing there close together, especially when they ended up staring into each others faces, was far closer to being lovers than at any time during the "lovers days" with Mai constantly on the attack.

I was able to see a bit of the illustrations for volume 2.

The serie is....a yuri harem ?

That looks more like a live triangle than a harem.

Ajisai is also (kinda) in the mix from late vol 1 of LN, but I don't think that it has harem/love triangle tones. It's more like MC is really, really traumatized by her middle school experience and has a very hard time denying people, which seems to lead to people both, taking advantage (that's what I'm guessing will happen in vol 2 /w Satsuki, looking at illustrations) and misunderstanding stuff (Ajisai - although that's even more of a guess, since vol 3 is not even out yet, so not even illustrations, just read that it will be focused on her).

Honestly, the whole dynamic IMO is a bit similar to the experience described in The Private Report on My Lesbian Experience with Loneliness - she barely learned how to walk, socially, and she is thrown into very advanced social dynamics involving all kinds of difficult people, that completely overheat her circuits. She also loves to put herself down and overthink stuff. Add gay panic on top of that and it's a total mess.

The vol 1 LN experience is like watching a trainwreck - it doesn't even feel good most of the time, yet it's somehow hard to avert your eyes. It's really hard to call it a romcom IMO - it's 70% drama/angst/assault/confusion, 20% more heartwarming stuff, and 10% comedy, if that.

I don't feel this series to be honest, seems more of the same back-and-forth between the characters, and that weird dynamic of "sometimes friends, sometimes lovers" doesn't seem to actually matter all that much.

...to be honest I'm not even sure what I expected, but what I got I don't find too interesting, or even cute :P

Yeah I'm mostly reading for the art at this point and them looking hot together. She's coming on way WAY too strong. I feel like the approach she has just pushes introverted people like that away.

I’m starting to like Ajisai, she’s slowly grown on me and her interaction with Renako is adorable. I love the little scribbles/extras at the end too!

Honestly I thought they were going to be similar and the MC would be like oh cool we can do this together then, while other girl is like yes and make out afterwards

Instead I got LICK YOUR THIGHS

Not angry that I was wrong
