I think I'm missing something here, and might have forgotten or not read something properly, is the married woman at the end her friend with the cat-ear like hair?

Nah that's not Takahashi. Without going back through all the chapters to see if she appeared before, i'd wager the married lady is simply one of her readers whom she met before at an event like this, that's why she greets her like that.

Ah okay, thanks. I was...very worried there for a second haha

Yeah I tried to skim through previous chapter but couldn't find her, so I was just like "hmm..."

Pretty sure it's the woman from the beginning of ch 11, going by the features and the reference to drawing manga.

...though damned if I could find any context for that scene or where Yamashita knew her from in the first place ¯\(ツ)/¯

Long-distance relationships are pain, especially if you don't know for certain when you will next meet in person. :-(

poor girl, she should go visit her takahashi

I very much relate to the 'drag' part. I almost always drop things as soon as they become inconvinient to do. Even the most fun things and nice friends.

Why do I have a feeling they will solve it by Yamashita moving in with Takahashi?

Update after ch17: CALLED IT

don't think I didn't see Takahashi say "today feels kind of romantic" in the back there when Yamashita told her she was moving to be closer together again.

Oh dang, this is the direction I really hoped it go, but wasn't sure...I think a...confession(?) like this fits in very well with the themes of this manga. And Yamashita's character.

After a confession on a sort of romantic day, they decided to be partners. Happy end achieved.

I got a laugh from Yamashita researching all the tropes of confessing in a classroom, yet she talked over the mention of romance.

Oh, and judging by the board the chapter one reference "ever since that day we still couldn't be normal" was apparently for the chapter 17 confession, not just for them meeting in high school. Nice fake out.

I don’t get it what do you mean here?

In the new chapter (17 not 18, oops), Takahashi mentions the parent teacher conferences and we see the exact same image of a classroom. Chapter 1 used the image as a cutaway, and it wasn't explicitly connected to the high school storyline, it just happened before the Christmas date(?). So "ever since that day we still couldn't be normal" is as much about the confession event as any high school stuff.

Really liked Takahashi's instant response in the second panel of page 5, no thought required at all.

That was incredibly cute. Not sure if that was a confession or not which is probably the 'not normal' point, but man was that cute.

Oh, so that's what "normal" meant all along! The author was playing the long game, I see.

EDIT: "Normal" basically referred to "being an inextricable part of each other's normal life". "Still not normal" meant that the two of them were still hesitant to treat each other as essential parts of their lives. Only a prolonged absence made them consciously want to normalize their permanent togetherness.
