So is my reading off, or is dark-haired girl actually somewhat earnest and wanting to get along, do things well, while light-haired girl has a ton of internalized misogyny and is projecting on her?

I’m not sure still exactly how to place these characters, or what we’re supposed to think of them.

Well the entire point is to speculate over Kayos intentions isnt it? Is it possible that Kayo actually likes Junko in some way and is trying to make peace? Should Junko trust her? The point is to keep reading to see what unfolds.

Exactly! This guy gets it.

Also I understand everything so far. It isn't too difficult to understand if anything the main conflict is supposed to lie with Kayo and Junko. Their jobs or other activities are basically a sub plot because each interaction or conversation they are trying to figure the other out more than they care about the other shit. The other shit is basically a sub plot and that the characters are smart enough to have such a good understanding of complex things which translates into their dealings with each other. Or at least that's my take on it. shrug

Tendou Maya and Saijou Claudine as office ladies. Nice.

I absolutely love this top vs top vibe. It's also interesting to see office drama that feels realistic (the extreme physical altercations notwithstanding)

Hmm. Mr. Manager seems to be playing a tricksy game. I suspect he knows more about their interactions than he's letting on and he's intentionally playing them against each other to either push them into accomplishing more or figuring out how to work together, because they'd never manage either on their own.

Also, it looks like it's time for Hate Sex: Round 2. There also seems to be some jealousy over the new girl.

Wow when I skimmed through the original japanese version I assumed Kayo had done something to significantly sabotage Junko's career to make her that angry. It turns out Junko just snitched on her and didn't get the result she wanted. Junko really is the crazy one here.

Eh, Kayo did deliberately antagonise her, with the sole purpose of provoking her. She's 100% at fault for instigating needlessly; I can't really fault Junko for giving her what she wanted.

Maybe he just likes watching them fight on the CCTV

Don't get your hopes up. I suspect that even if it does happen, it'll be over in three panels and we won't see any of the good parts in any case. But I'll be delighted if the author proves me wrong...

Eh. If I wanted extended sex scenes, I'd go look up some hentai. This is more for the narrative and artwork, both of which include sexual elements, rather than just focusing on the sex itself.

Yeah you can read the next chapter in japanese here: https://j-nbooks.jp/comic/original.php?oKey=187 the "sex" which is way more fighting than it is sex, is over in a couple panels because its more story based than it is erotic based. Unless they both calmed down and had normal sex and realised they loved each other or if there was any other important changes to their dynamic, theres no point in making it a long sex scene. It's not mean to be a hentai.

Mod edit: Added a spoiler tag.
