I don't know. I think Yumimi is always kinda an ass to Nononon.

Constantly teasing her and telling her "just kidding".

I feel the same

I don't necessarily dislike characters that tease, but match that constant "haha just kidding" with an insecure character that will already bend over backwards to convince herself nobody could be interested in her and it is SO FRUSTRATING! Even so, I wish them the best, at least for Nononon's sake lol

Is it normal when someone says 'I'm going to the toilet' to reply 'Have fun'?

I guess it is... if she's going with her nubile young lover and you assume they're going to make out in the stall. ;-)

Yeah I do it all the time, works even better if two people are going to the bathroom together.

I was hoping we’d get more Haruka and Kanae but I guess we’ll have to wait like two years for their new ch...This is good too, though. This pair has grown on me (just like Midori and Hibiki, I hope they’ll be endgame too).

Water-closet is perfectly ok.

Now Nononon flip the tables on her and challenge her to tell you if she likes you or not! Fuck the quiz you must take a direct approach with her, do a oppaidon if you must!

Really though she does say just kidding quite a bit, I can imagine they have sex and right after Yumimi says: Just kidding Senpai!

Anyways holding hands in secret around the others is pretty darn cute. Thanks for the chapter.

In the spirit of groan-inducing responses, let's recall a classic: In Soviet Russia, the toilet goes on you.

Technically, yes, but it also makes you sound like Strom Thurmond circa 1960.

Hehe, is there actually a proper word? Timothy Sly once wrote an interesting article on that subject. I'll paste it here:


The eternal problem is the exasperatingly euphemistic nature of polite English discourse. Simply put, we do not have a correct term for such a place. Not one.

“Toilet” denotes the act of cleansing/washing. So do “lavatory” & “washroom”, but no mention is made of the real reason for the visit. “Bathroom” would be valid if we needed a shower or a soak in the tub. “Powder room” suggests a place exclusively reserved for adding talcum or scented corn-starch to one's skin. “Ladies' room” or “men's room” is curiously evasive about what these gender-overconfident folk actually do in there, to say nothing of the folk who identify with other categories included in the LGBTQ spectrum.

“Rest room” is even more obscure from any accurate label; one wonders who actually enters such a facility to enjoy a rest. “Water-closet” hearkens back to early days of flushing in Britain, and it is getting close, but “public convenience” could equally apply to a drinking fountain or park bench, neither of which would invite excretorial emissions in their proximity.

“Loo” dates even further back to the 17th century when contents of “chamber pots” (yet another rich topic for euphemistic debate) were flung from upper floors onto the street and it's unfortunate occupants. The cry would go out “Guardez-l'eau!” (watch out for the water), followed by the unsavoury contents being unceremoniously hurled upon passers-by. “L'eau,” became “Loo” to the local denizens, and thus it evolved into the current meaning.

Even more confusing to overseas visitors is the reference by older British people to “I'll just go and spend a penny!” This of course refers to the cost of one penny to enter the door of the stalls at that time. Men were mostly able to avoid this, representing an early form of gender discrimination.

The “bog” was a term much beloved by schoolboys, and may have reflected the squelchy nature underfoot.

The French at least are to be congratulated for one terminology in as much as “la pissotière” was nothing less than a public urinal on the sidewalk of the busy street in which the heads and feet of the usually male occupants were still visible to those passing by, but the purpose of the facility as its name suggests, was not in doubt.

I mean. Far as I've been told their terminology for children of successive marriages is bluntly de 1ère/2ème/etc. lit ("from 1st/2nd/etc. bed") - not big on pointlessly prudish euphemisms that lot.

While we can't know for sure yet, I got the impression that as Yumimi became interested in and got closer to Nononon, she decided that a teasing approach was the best way to get closer by inches, without Nononon freaking out. Because Nononon freaks out pretty easily, it appears. By slowly getting her used to these things Yumimi could get closer without scaring her off. Whether that's actually a good approach or whether that's actually what she's doing, is up for debate of course.

Preeeeetty sure Yumimi keeps pulling that "just kidding" line to relieve her own tensions, I'd be signally surprised if she's nearly as on top of things as she portrays herself as.

Though tbf given Nononon's rampant insecurities someone in the relationship needs to act confident and take the initiative, however uncertain and fumbling blind they now might actually be.

Has there been any indication of when this will conclude? It has been over a decade and as great as it is the relationships can only be teased so long
