Her hero ^_^ Poor Mitsuki, she's really been a trooper for a girl not used to socializing, no wonder her batteries were running low.

At first I liked a lot this title but I think that's more than enough tease already, I would to see real hints of mutual interest with yuri vibes coming from Koga, it feels stuck and too much one sided since several previous chapters, I hope this gets a really change in the narrative because it's getting boring and predictable.

definitely agree. i've felt that way for a while now, and i think the 4-page format is showing its limitations for how much is going on in the story. each chapter has to be self-contained to a degree while still advancing the plot and that's really holding progression back. there's no room to breathe and each page feels claustrophobic as a result. i used to get excited for this one but now it feels business-as-usual.

Totally get where you're coming from. It helps that I don't really expect much development. Then it feels like a cute thing I get to squee over for a little every week before moving on with life lol

Oh, huh. I didn't realize that was a thing, and yet now i realize I've seen it dozens of times. Weird.

Also for the curious, I think that the box Aya pulled out is a Marshall Emberton II Bluetooth speaker. The grille doesn't quite match, but it's the model with that big fat single button on top.

I dunno, I think it's more just that she is now aware that the person she'd be talking about is sitting right next to her. ;p

I still kinda want to know if her friends have sussed out that Koga is the music shop guy.

Koga smiling in that last page might just be the cutest thing this manga has shown us so far. Just perfect. Still my favorite way to start a Sunday.

When's the last time we saw the two of them just being cute together like this?? Though their energy was a bit much, I appreciate the group including Mitsuki as well.

Ok I'm sorry y'all I know everyone is going to hate me but this manga is undeniably cringe

Listen.....

Billy Corgan wrote Tonight, Tonight for two reasons. As a homage to his favorite band (Cheap Trick) and as an encouragement letter to himself after surviving a nightmare childhood. Corgan's father was a talented professional musician, and also a mentally unstable petty criminal and deadbeat. His mom was divorced from dad and wasn't a major presence, and his stepmother was (allegedly) physically and emotionally abusive to him and his brothers. Corgan eventually taught himself how to play the guitar, and got the hell out of there to become a musician.

Boring bio data aside, the choice of THIS song for this chapter has to be deliberate. Suddenly it recasts some otherwise inexplicable aspects of Mitsuki's life:

-Why is she living with her uncle, of all people?
-When Kanna invited her uncle to live with her in the USA, he declined because he wouldn't leave Mitsuki behind. That implies that he isn't her legal guardian, and if he left she would either be placed in a state orphanage or worse.
-When Kanna reappears years later, she is trying to entice Mitsuki to move to the States upon her graduation, is it because she's offering a fresh start with an entire ocean between the girl and her problematic past?
-The Mangaka shows some understanding of US immigration policies, and familiarity with the H2B visa.

It's not undeniable. But I don't hate you; I just think you're wrong.

It's a story about teenagers trying to sort through their feelings. It kind of comes with the territory :P

You can tell when Aya said "I'm in no place to talk about love" that really grabbed Koga's attention. Good music might be distracting her for the moment but you just know she's gonna be mulling over the implications of that line all night. And she'll probably incorrectly come to a conclusion that she should feel guilty or something about it lol.

This is getting tiring already. It's not even updated weekly and the story is just all fan service now. The author is dragging this whole "Aya is the only one invested in this /friendship/" plot thing. Look, I know Koga was the first to ask Aya to be friends but that's it. It's mostly Aya doing the efforts. Sigh.
