holy maceroni autor-san is drawing fast.

I didnt expect satou to like her own sister tho. also isn't kinda wierd to "convince" someone you trust to study the thing you need? even if you trust someone, you can never be sure and maybe they wanted to do something else

You know I kinda want Makino to get some karma for extorting her sister...

I wonder if "big sis" actually means biological sister, vs. a school/senpai sense of "onee-sama"

Like in Railgun, Kuroko is calling Misaka "onee-sama" all the time but they're not related.

The production stuff was interesting. Average of 11 days to do 12-14 pages plus a color frontispiece. If we combine the hours into full-time days, that would be 5-6 days, or a week, to do 13 pages. Webcomics tend to top out at like 3 color pages a week, or in the case of El Goonish Shive, 3 B&W pages + 3 B&W strips so maybe like 4.5 pages. Pro Western comics tend to have someone spending a month on drawing 22 pages, with other people doing the writing and coloring.

Conclusion: Kosuzume as unmentioned assistants, or is a art-drawing beast.

Edit: OTOH, the pages tend to be like 2-4 panels, whereas Girl Genius and EGS today have 8 panel pages, so it's not the same.

I’d assume the Mc older sis was just into it herself and maybe that’s why the interest started or maybe she just heard about her gfs goal and decided she’d like to help/found an interest in it because of that. Doesn’t mean she necessarily convinced her

I take that back she totally said she’d get someone to become a psychologist. That is pretty weird

They are not biologically related, but I think are still family. Satou said she was abandoned as a child so either she was adopted by Sena's family or they were both orphans in the same orphanage. I'm leaning towards the latter since Sena wants to build a childcare facility as her dream and that would make sense as the catalyst for her motivations.

It's a small world after all.

The circumstances seem kinda vague. I don't know if that was deliberately trying to push Satou into that field or if it was just an off-hand comment that Satou latched onto. Future chapters will, hopefully, make it clearer.

Satou has good taste. (Sena is totally my type) Bad timing though.

The way it's written is pretty bad but I think what she's trying to say is "get someone to become a psychologist at her childcare facility", as in hire someone who has a degree/background in psychology instead of "make someone study psychology".

Oh damn there's depth to these characters. I'm so lost in the fantasy over time that I forget.

Well, that went from "zero" to "holy shit" real fast.

I...uh...don't exactly trust this manga to do this topic justice? I honestly can't decide if it'll be more annoying for this to be a fake-out or a genuine attempt at drama that feels a little unearned.

I wasn’t expecting this, but I can’t say there were not signs this could be coming. I mean… abandoned by parents, prostitution+day job+preparing for exams (that ain’t healthy), and spoilers

Clearly had something going on with her “sister” who’s probably from a similar background — so they had a “kindred spirits” type of relationship but her sister is “moving on” and has a lover and is achieving her dreams while she’s not part of it at all so she’s lost the only person she thought was an important part of her life

Can’t really say the last page of this chapter is 100% far-fetched. We just don’t see it as predictable because we are experiencing the story through the lens of the scumbag.

But we all know what will happen on the next chapter (it will solve itself quickly)

Damn that was a sudden turn even though we knew Satou was going through some shit. So not unexpected based on what we know of the characters, but the tonal shift in those last pages is kinda bonkers.

I guess we are finally seeing how Satou can start forming feelings for Makino. Never expected the story to go in this direction for it though lol. I just hope Satou won't fall in love just because she finds she's wanted by someone and she actually leaves that toxic mindset.

I think the only one that exists and could fit is Suicide but using it can be misleading af.

Same. I hope this becomes a step for Satou to see Makino as a friend and not a client. Not thinking there are ulterior motives for the other to reach out for her since she is no longer “Maron”.
The romance route could be delayed by the fact that Makino is a complete idiot and will take months to find out she is indeed in love.

Something like
They become friends -> “hey this is a solution to the uneasiness” > notices it’s not -> oh wait up I AM a Riako
