The fact that Nagisa's father specifically warns him that he'll have to move out if anything happens with "that woman"*- the phrasing is vague enough that Nagisa doesn't get it but the implication is clearly that he's talking about Nagisa falling in love with Ai- seems to imply that the story will eventually take a romantic turn, that Nagisa's father will find out about Nagisa and Ai being a couple, and that Nagisa and Ai will have to deal with the consequences. While I'm not a fan of that potential plot development, I have to admit that a part of me is interested in seeing how things play out if Nagisa's dad finds out that his son and sister-in-law are romantically involved.

*Incidentally, I wonder if his use of the rather rude term "that woman" seems to imply that he doesn't like Ai very much, maybe because Nagisa's staying with her rather than his father and stepmother.

Indeed, it does seem like Nagisa's father doesn't like Ai too much, even though he's the one who initially left his son to her...

As a precision, Nagisa's father didn't use one of the harshest way to talk about Ai, i.e. he didn't say "yatsu" or something like that, he said "ano josei", but still, he didn't even address her as, i dunno, "his wife's sister" or "Ai" or anything...

As for the fact that we're getting this warning from him as a story element, I'm wondering if we must take it as a Chekov's gun, or if this plot element will be dropped, which isn't impossible with manga, deadlines and axes.

Excited for the next chapters!

Generally, in fiction, any time someone gets pre-emptively warned not to do something and they don't completely understand the warning, they tend to do the thing they're not supposed to do.

Nagisa's father uses "-san" on his own wife when talking about her with Nagisa, so it seems rather noticeable that he doesn't use a similar level of courtesy on his sister-in-law, even if he isn't quite as rude as I first thought.

Wait, he dares to call that "more mature"? He's never looked as childish as in that first outfit...

The 4th is nice, though.

"Could you give me your arm?"

He's smooth AF, and he doesn't even realize it. LMAO

I came here to say that oblivious lady-killers are the most devastating kind.

I'm super flattered by your offer, and if I wasn't such a lone wolf who likes to do everything, I'd accept your help in a heartbeat!

not sure if antyone's mentioned this but I just can't get over how fucking pretty Ai is. I'm not even kidding, she looks good in every panel she's in. she might be my favorite looking manga character ever .,,' i don't understand how it's possible for a character to look THIS GOOD

I love this. One of the few series I see and get excited to read immediately. The story, the art, the character themselves all are wonderful! Thank you @princess daphie for all your hard work! It is being well appreciated!

Ngl the latest chapter going "oh yeah this is totally a Manga and we're aware of that" was off putting so probably will stop reading this for awhile until it's close to ending.

I don't know if that's how you and others are understanding it, but personally, I really only ever understood it as Kiyoka being a manga editor and she's kind of a nerd/otaku girl who can't help but see a shoujo-like situation with what's happening to Ai lately. I'm actually surprised to see ppl are seeing this as breaking the 4th wall, lol

Hope you come back to it soon! :)

Yeah, the manga editor with genre goggles is a pretty common trope. And to me this is trope-y enough without being over-the-top about it that Kiyoka's remarks don't really feel very meta, just like her character's schtick.
