That's fair enough. You might've just been getting wires crossed with one of the many other storylines. I was actually a little worried that my response was too snarky, and I really appreciate that you reconsidered your perspective instead of getting defensive and doubling down. Respect.
Thanks, I've gotten into snark wars before on this forum and it seems I've learned a lesson. My initial inclination was to strongly defend my position, but then I figured I should probably check my work, so to speak, so I consulted the kiss list and I couldn't believe how many there were that I'd forgotten about.
In this one, my reaction came from seeing Chie's face in the last panel with her eyes closed, which seemed (to me) like she was suppressing some serious disappointment that she didn't get Ai's lips. But in retrospect I'm almost certainly exaggerating the significance of it.
I actually really like this couple and so I'm probably remembering some of the disappointment from the near-misses before they finally kissed the first time (as I mentioned before I binge-read most of this). But by the same token, I can definitely see that my initial post was probably a bit triggering to others; we all understandably get emotionally invested in these storylines.
