I thought this was a little bit deranged but then I read the translator's note and it only makes me more worried to be quite honest lmao

... but I'll try to keep my mind as open as I am able to

I'm not big on some of the designs but this first chapter made me laugh a couple times so i'll stick with it and see where it goes. It has potential!

My conundrum was that I really wanted people to give it a chance and not be creeped out by Himeno, but I also realized no matter how I worded it it would always have some underlying meaning to some lol. Still, I really do love all these dorks so I hope you'll give them a chance. I know it won't be everyone's cup of tea (what is anyway), but if my message persuaded at least one extra person I'm happy.

I don't think that being anxious after more than 24 hours of no contact is being needy. It felt like a fairly normal reaction to me. I'm actually surprised that she wasn't banging at her g/f doors after about 12 hours of no contact. No normal person just goes off the grid for that long with no prior notice of some kind. If anyone's weird here, it's Yoru.

The little details in this are really nice so far, I really like the stylized contents page and her phone being broken as a detail. Also Yoru's excuse for not responding is immediately sus, my headcanon right now is she's the type who gets off on worrying her partner and so she will actively neglect her to get a rise.

Well, I guess this is one of those stories you can't treat too seriously.

I don't find someone dropping off the grid for a day or two all that unusual. There have been instances where I've gone weeks or a couple of months without calling or texting people. Not that there was anything wrong, just that I had nothing to say. I'll admit I'm not normal and I can't recall anyone ever accusing me of being normal either, so take it as you will.

I love her already. My girl is EXRTREME but she is so lovable. A little self reflection goes a long way in a character.

I agree with the conclusion but not the antecedent.

As they aren't living together or anything, a mere 28 hours of silence is perfectly acceptable and must not mean you're avoiding your partner. But really, a cold? From my experience, bed-ridden people use their phone more, not less.

I can imagine the topics might be a bit heavy in the future, but I'm enjoying the light nature of the work. I suppose the comedy relies on the anxiety of everything going to worst, but that everything just works out in the end, however that is kind of reassuring in a way. Like a un-decatastrophization, you imagine the worst case scenario but just as you do you find out it didn't happen, but you're still catastrophe mode lol.

Thanks for sharing this!

I'm just gonna say it, I think Hime might, in fact, be a needy woman.

Thanks for translating this.

And what was that Phone screen LOL

I feel you, Yoru.
When I was in college, I would rather lie in bed, feeling rotten and sleep instead of staring at the screen of my phone while my eyes and throat burned. It's a pain to be sick and worry your girlfriend too, I think.

After reading the TN I'm more interested. I like genuinely flawed and complex characters.

There is nothing wrong with just not contacting friends all that much, or not starting at the screen all day when you're sick. There is nothing wrong with any of that if there isn't someone expecting you.

But you should at least message your s/o "hey, I'm sick" at some point during the day. I don't say they should have a conversation, but a status heads-up is something you would expect in a relationship. If it's a one-time thing because you were so dead that you somehow did not wake up for 28 hours straight, then sure. But the nonchalance with which she came back in, after seeing the whole day of one-sided messages on her phone, feels a little disturbing to me.

That's why I think that there is something wrong - in a completely opposite direction to Hime, with Yoru. I'm getting flashbacks to "Koi no Zetsubou Koushin Kyoku", with how dissociated she seems.

Yeah I feel like if she was awake at some point during those 28 hours of recovery a little heads up would have been good, especially knowing that her girlfriend worries a lot.

a series like this (and the comments it gets from ppl) nicely demonstrates how vast the difference in needs can be for people and why it is crucial to talk about these things with your partners and never assume what is and isn't "normal" in a relationship~
