I want to like this one, but I’m really not feeling it yet. Both Ichika’s infatuation with “Kanon” and Akane’s abuse of Ichika seem plausible in themselves (Ichika’s just a fangirl, and Akane needs to establish a distance between her stage persona and her real self) but their level seems to be excessive and under-motivated in the present circumstances.
Maybe if we got more background on why each of those things are so important to the characters Ichika wouldn’t come off as just an oblivious idiot and Akane wouldn’t seem so gratuitously psychopathic. But given this author’s other recent work in this vein, I’m not holding my breath for much nuanced psychological development.
I understand your frustration of wanting everything to have reason to it. However, it's not a requirement for all mangakas to write realistic stories, and that's okay—mangas don't necessarily have to be realistic, for it to be good.
This manga is tagged "comedy," which leads me to believe that a lot of the things displayed in the manga is for, well, comedic purposes. And it works, I'm very amused by this manga.
In my opinion(you don't have agree), it's just another anime trope: Cute on the outside, devilish on the inside. Reliant Onee-sama on the outside, airhead otaku in the inside. I'm guessing it's the gap moe and absurd scenes in this manga that makes it funny and good.
