That was fantastic :)

I know we dont seem to get their chapters very often but - would you say these 2 are the next pair closest to becoming a real couple?

page 4 is so fucked up

I'm happy I'm not the only one who thought about it.
I wondered if she was gonna lick it, actually

Haha I was honestly convinced she was going to lick it when I was first reading

Remember when Kanae would wear prescription swimming goggles to stare at girls? Well obviously not anymore since she has her Haruka. Also I take offense to that last pic. Kanae has been gay as shit from day one.

That was both genuinely sweet and also pretty darn hot at the same time :⁠0 Kishi-sensei really is a master at that elusive combo.

That and all the little often overlooked moments, and body language that communicate so much without dialogue. Really good with non-verbal communication through characters or scenes and also with showing tenderness through small shows of affection (like in this chapter). And the variety of relationship types but at the same time, doesn't really judge them. Just let's them play out. Awesome.

These two are super cute though. My second favorite pairing, here.

I've been counting the days since their last chapter and I was so happy to see that the wait was worth it. This was so good! I hope we can get more of them within the next 6 months or so. They're my favorite pair <3

Gotta feel for the swim teacher, having to deal with all these lesbians flirting during swim class.

Happy to see my top 3 couple again but damn, I knew Haruka had it down bad but I didn't think she was gonna rub Kanae's pool water on herself. Come on girl, get it together, lmao

Just went back and reread all the Haruka x Kanae chapters. It's nice seeing just how much Kanae has changed since the start, especially once she met Haruka.

No- they are a real couple when one says please go out with me / be my girlfriend- and the other says yes - and they start kissing etc. Sure it looks like they both want to be - especially Haruka- she is knowingly actively persuing kanae - but im unsure if Kanae knows whats up yet- she might not of thought about about it.

You know not every couple goes through the whole confession/asking out thing. Some poeple just get together. They mutually realize what they've got going and just go with it.

Yeah- sure, sometimes. . And after they realise? They start to act like a couple - kissing etc.. and will acknowledge it with each other.. and these 2 are NOTthere- not yet. They are acting like a couple who are into each other / persuing each other etc - or at least Haruka fore sure is. Also no way the author is gonna hook them up off 'screen' imo.

They also say stuff that reveals they are NOT yet a couple - like saying 'I didn't realise you liked me so much' and blushing.. She wouldnt be suprised by her calling her HER Haruka if they were a couple.

Ayano, I'm begging you, this girl is basically throwing herself at you. Ayano, she's so dumb, you have to help her.

Ayano is too busy staring at the tag for some reason!

She's acting like someone who's never seen a big, exposed pair of clothing tags before.

Or like she's never shared a bath and fondled Miyoshi's boobs before. I swear, she's regressing on any progress she's made sometimes.

My friend, I'm the guy who caused a stir before by saying that I wasn't at all convinced that Honoka "confessed" to Elisha in Chapter 250. I'm still not. The word "love" has many facets and degrees, and to me Honoka is obviously (primarily) straight. Please everyone, don't flame me over this again; I'm just making the point that I'm not easily taken in by the "three little words" and have a higher bar for when I believe people have reached yuri couple status.

That being said, even I have trouble seeing how Haruka/Kanae aren't there yet. I hear what you're saying about kissing and other overtly romantic gestures, but we should be careful not to project Western cultural standards onto Japanese teenagers. Despite what manga and doujinshi might have us believe, Japan is still a far more conservative society than what we're accustomed to in the West. The fact that a couple is only at the hand-holding stage and isn't "hooking up" doesn't necessarily mean they aren't a couple.

As for Haruka's "since when have you been that into Haruka" remark, I think that's just a bit of insecurity combined with embarrasment. Remember, up until now, it's been Haruka who's been the posessive one, and who probably sees herself as the one more in love. Kanae's affection has been more subtle and reserved, often coming as a reassuring reaction to Haruka's fears about being overbearing and smothering with her crush. This was the first unmistakably overt display of jealousy and, well, romantic/sexual territoriality shown by Kanae (but not the first display of sexual interest -- see the "Venus Dimples" chapter).

I would recommend re-reading chapter 222 (which came after Haruka's "I Love You" note to Kanae). They're only being mildly subtle here, talking about "the one you like" and "making my heart pound", the latter being an extremely common trope for romantic attraction. I think they're both very much aware of how the other one feels, especially now. How they handle it physically and verbally is a bit beside the point.
