I really doubt that Sayaka is going to try anything based on what she said in this chapter
https://dynasty-scans.com/chapters/bloom_into_you_ch26#20
Even if she did I don't see it going anywhere because Touko has never indicated that she feels any romantic feelings towards her at all. She has only been interested in Yuu.

My first impressions on this chapter: OMG SO SWEET I LOVE YAGAKIMI THIS ART IS BEAUTIFUL AS ALWAYS OOO

My second, more elaborate, impressions:

So, we got from the end of chapter 32 that Yuu's definitely thinking on confessing to Touko, and this one reinforces that. It's really sweet to know Yuu's dad would be ok with having a lesbian daughter,, and it's wonderful that Rei would be on Yuu's side on this. We're all worried about Yuu's confession not being accepted, but as it is right now, I do believe it would be. Touko has changed.

Overall, I have a feeling that there needs to be created more conflict in order to build another arc of the story, because as it is now things just turned out alright: The entire conflict about Touko wanting to become her sister is turning towards resolution, so either we get another plot element being thrown in to cause drama, or Yuu's gonna confess right away and the story will end in a couple of chapters with a happy ending.

Maybe Sayaka could be the tension point? What if she confesses to Touko before Yuu does and the two of them start officially dating? Or maybe Touko will die and Yuu will never be able to tell her her feelings. No? Too dark?

I'd very much like to hear what everyone thinks will happen in the next chapters.

Here's the thing I'm not completely sure Touko hasn't just replaced one act with another. Something just felt off with her behavior. First off why didn't she tell Yuu she joined the troupe . You would think Yuu would be the first person she went to about it even just about considering it. Second did she ever go back to Yuu to claim the denied kiss that was suppose been kind of a reward for the play? It almost feels like a distance has developed from Toukos end while Yuu finally wanted to get closer. Yuu has been pretty perceptive through things and it seems like she even might feel like something is off but her wanting to be able to love Touko might cloud her judgment and cause her to ignore certain things.

Another possibility is Touko is getting caught up in being free from completing her sisters unfinished work and now is unintentionally drifting away from Yuu as she speeds ahead into her new life. This making things awkward for Yuu to be able to confess to Touko now.

We also dunno what happen with that talk Touko parents was going have with her after they saw the play and Sayako is still completely up in the air with her feelings. Plus we have observer boy, basketball girl and glasses boy a whole hate becomes love angle possible there, and even the writer girl. (Yes I'm bad with names.) There is all this still to resolve. Not to mention if Touko and Yuu do become official and come out to their friends, school ates, parents how that will be handled and recieved.

Right now al we got is with this chapter we know Yuu won't be alone as she has her sisters support.

I don't think that is right. I think she is saying she was afraid to risk losing having Touko in her life by trying to help Touko and upset her by doing it while then Yuu came along and is willing to take the risk for Touko. She is saying she doesn't have the right to try and stop Yuu from helping Touko in some misguided attempt of keeping the status quo and protect Touko and the current situation. On the very next page she straight out ask Yuu if she loves Touko then states herself that she loves Touko. Basically saying I am her I am your rival but I am not going to be underhanded and also be your enemy. So they officially become both rivals and compatriots when it comes to Touko. Only hitch is Sayako doesn't know of the "relationship" already going on between Yuu and Touko and to what degree it already was at.

Well, it's been stated on Twitter that the next chapter is the last of the current volume 6, and Nakatani herself has said this volume is not the last one and that the manga will still continue for some time (maybe 8 volumes?). We have to wait and see how chapter 34 will play things out, it can mark the start of a new arc and a new conflict, or it can end on a happy note for the main characters (I bet you're not expecting that eh). One thing is clear, Sayaka has been relevant since the beginning, so her feelings for Touko need a proper resolution. I'm not saying she'll get in the middle of Touko/Yuu, but I'm sure we'll see more of her point of view in later chapters.
Regarding this chapter, the fact that Rei mentions the parents makes me think we'll see Yuu (and maybe Touko too) coming out to her family. I hope so, and I also want a chapter where Yuu goes to Touko's house.

Actually, I’m only guessing because it’s fun—we’ve been in such good hands with this author that I’m perfectly content to just wait and see.

Same here.

Here's the thing I'm not completely sure Touko hasn't just replaced one act with another. Something just felt off with her behavior. First off why didn't she tell Yuu she joined the troupe . You would think Yuu would be the first person she went to about it even just about considering it.

My guess is that Touko used to need Yuu in order to hang on back when she was trying to be her sister. Right now, though, it feels like Touko is discovering the world by herself and doesn't need Yuu to hold her hand anymore. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, being self sufficient is an important aspect of healthy relationships, but I do feel Yuu misses being needed by Touko.

Another possibility is Touko is getting caught up in being free from completing her sisters unfinished work and now is unintentionally drifting away from Yuu as she speeds ahead into her new life. This making things awkward for Yuu to be able to confess to Touko now.

I was sure things would go that way, especially after Touko didn't tell Yuu about the theatre troupe, but just then Touko said she loved Yuu once more, and I don't think she was pretending, so I chucked out that hypothesis.

Only hitch is Sayako doesn't know of the "relationship" already going on between Yuu and Touko and to what degree it already was at.

I actually read that scene like Ranzo did: Sayaka is aware that Yuu has a relationship with Touko, and she's saying that it would be too dishonest of her to meddle with that after she lost her own chance. Simply put, she was admitting defeat.

But I wouldn't put Sayaka out of the picture just yet. Maybe something does happen between Yuu and Touko (like a fight) and Sayaka sees that as an opportunity to try again with Touko.

Regarding this chapter, the fact that Rei mentions the parents makes me think we'll see Yuu (and maybe Touko too) coming out to her family. I hope so, and I also want a chapter where Yuu goes to Touko's house.

That's an interesting perspective. So far we have only seen Yuu selflessly helping Touko with her issues. Maybe this time Yuu will have to face her own confrontations, and Touko is going to be there to support her.

This is strange. It looks like an ugly NTR, but I can not feel the stench of infidelity.

Maybe it's because Koito is asexual and always stays stoic.

Yuu never said she was asexual. She might have once believed herself aromantic, but it's been proven a number of times that's she's romatically in love with Touko. I think Yuu's just... Yuu. Like, maybe she's Toukosexual.

Wait, lmao, am I reading this wrong, or did Rei just reveal that she first asked out her now-long term boyfriend because they were having so much casual sex with each other that not being a couple was getting awkward? Like, the conversation was about initial confessions, she "wanted to take the ambiguity out of the relationship", and she's not going to talk about how they "were doing it without being official"? She's not just talking about being particularly cosy buddies, is she?

It's safe to assume that Rei was being physical with Hiro before dating similar to Yuu & Touko right now. Not sure if sex was involved (it does sound like it tho) but hey, implicit sex scene speculation is more possible now if that's the case. Maybe Rei will spill the beans if Yuu ever decides to tell her about the nature of her relationship with Touko.

I see…
Now I can see clearly that in the future there will be an infidelity, but I do not know who will be the victim this time.

Are you traumatized?

Indeed, I have a serious trauma.
I'm looking for the holy grail.
Maybe if I give my opinion in this way it is possible for someone to prove otherwise, but for now the NTR seems unbeatable and omnipotent.

About Sayaka, I agree she won't become an obstacle to Yuu's confession but I also don't agree that she has given up on Touko romantically. The scene where she asks Yuu if she loves Touko & straight up saying "I love her" tells you that her feelings are genuine and it establishes an implicit friendly & supportive rivalry between the two. "I love her and you should be more confident about your feelings for her too" (since Yuu was hesitant to answer). In a way, the scene tells you that she won't be possessive over Touko anymore but that doesn't mean she won't take her chances if given. I don't think she'll just confess out of the blue or confess with ill intent nor will her confession be a source of drama. If anything, I'm imagining her confessing just to help nudge Yuu into making up her mind about doing it & then she gets rejected & turns into a yandere & kills everyone. The end.

Rei-chan is a real bro. Er, sis.

I've always found it interesting Yuu's always called Rei-chan Rei-chan, instead of the standard Onee-chan, Aneki, Ane-ue, etc. I almost never see that in anime/manga. Is that kind of thing common in real life? The last time I saw it was in Kinyoubi no Otanoshimi, but even in that one the imouto did drop one or two Onee-chans here and there.

Nakatani did address this in an interview iirc. It's not common, but she wants to show how close the sisters are. I think that's probably why when Touko was over for the first time, Yuu corrected herself when she almost said "Rei-chan" by habit.

Aw this was a sweet chapter. Too bad it was so short. It felt more like a bonus chapter even though i know it's setting up for the eventual confession.

I agree with everything, except I don't think Sayaka would confess to help Yuu directly. If anything, Sayaka would confess if she thought she had real chances with Touko. Which might not be impossible once Touko starts finally liking herself (I'm guessing the theatre troupe is her first step in that direction).

I'm more active recently because I've been doing cleaning/typesetting for scanlation groups here and there. I should be studying, though, but I have no willpower left for that at the moment. What are you up to lately?

I think Sayaka can be pretty noble despite past hiccups. Ch 26 marks her letting go of her selfish and cowardly side. I want to believe that that development will come into play in the future with her helping out Yuu and Touko somehow. Might not play out like what I'm suggesting, but I do see it as a possibility. We'll have to wait and see though.
