Onoda definitely has a problem with making really harsh snap judgements of people but it's tempered by the fact that she usually revises them just as quickly rather than stubbornly sticking to them when they're proven wrong.
finally!! Stuff is getting serious and its not just teasing us anymore!! I thought we would never get a serious relationship out of this manga lol
Too bad one of the two serious relationships involves a melodramatic love/lust triangle :(
agh... I know what you mean -.- But I guess it's a step towards making a serious relationship. Everything else in the manga feels like a tease. Like we know some characters "like each other" but nothing has come of it. Like no real relationship yet.
I think you've been missing Onoda's characterization since the beginning, if you're just picking up on it now.
Yeah like, she's insecure and feels isolated from her peers and to compensate for this she's very quick to judge them harshly based on shallow first impressions both too help her feel better about her own shortcomings and to convince herself that she doesn't WANT their companionship even though she very obviously desperately does. However, she's not usually stubborn about said judgements especially when her insecurity/loneliness is mollified and will promptly change her opinion when she gets to now someone even on a cursory level. This chapter is just a reaffirmation of her character as it has been developed since like the beach trip.
This manga is just too wonderful. With every chapter I got more and more insight, character understanding, yuri, and tease haha. The story (and humor) is daily fresh, the art bold and clean, the girls in a schoolgirls atmosphere made me squirm with delight lol. Definitely one of my favorite.
