Can we get a mature tag on this, please? This chapter was L E W D and at this rate they'll be holding hands before too long.

 

Goddamn degenerates!

Spoiler

You know I would clap loud here if not for one line in your whole comment: "The lack of a harem gave the author time to develop them"

 

Sorry pal, but that's wrong.

 

There are very few decent titles nowadays, but there are some harem series that properly develop characters, I could give at least three examples here, but i'll refrain from doing so. Because your comment is clearly biased by the knowledge of famous ones like Nisekoi and To love Ru(which would have been perfect if it had ended in the first series, and the author had moved on).

 

People exagerate when it comes to harem, there are indeed some series that are worthwhile. But just like the Isekai genre for LN, proper harem titles get ignored, because people only read the famous copy and paste, and not the decent but somewhat obscure. Reason being, "i've read so many copy and pastes that i already have reached my veredict."

Motherfucking cliffhanger. Also who is the cop on the cover?

I think Shirogane may lose this battle. I mean the exclusive confession, since, them being quite fitting for each other, it's a win no matter who confesses. I'm saying this because, he's been winning some battles lately, and they've all been major, but the pressure and expectation to confess still falls on him. And, as shy and insecure as he is, he does seem quite ready to confess. Had the entire scenario happened without the presence of the entire school, maybe he would've done so right there. In fact, the idea that everyone expected a confession right there almost made him confess on the spot. Miyuki is ready, I just think he needs a bit of a push.

This being said, this manga is so fulfilling to read, so entertaining, that I don't mind if it continues for another while. The characters are excellently developed, the eye-rolling cliches are kept to a very strict minimum, what more can I ask for? I enjoy this story.

I know this has to be bait but this triggers me so damn much I have to answer. Do you remember anything about Nisekoi at this point besides the shallow excuse of a plot and the nonsensical shipping wars? No, because Nisekoi was superfluous and vapid. It sustained itself by using tropes seen already thousands of times before. The harem was forced at best, the MC had no redeeming qualities besides the annoying Nice Guy nonsense that keeps plaging romcoms to this day. The heroines were so underdeveloped, I've played 18+ rated games whose girls left a more lasting impression. The supporting cast was barely there, amd only served as roadblocks to create some kind of tension which would never last more than a chapter. There was no development from start to finish. Those annoying twats never changed from chapter one till the ridiculous finale, making feeel the whole experience like a big waste of time. On the other hand we got Kaguya. Pick any pair of chapters and you can clearly see the two main characters are evolving with each passing day. The lack of a harem gave the author time to develop them, time to make them genuinely likeable people. You can see why he fell for her and why she fell for him. The reasoning doesn't feel like an excuse, unlike Nisekoi. It also gave us such a colorful supporting cast. The other recurring characters are as zany as the main two, and developed enough so that you can give them their day in the spotlight without it feeling like a filler. Do you understand how rare this is? I haven't been this attached to the supporting characters since the School Rumble days. And both Shirogane and Kaguya have perfectly valid motives to be their own worst enemies in attaining happiness. It's not a matter of cartoonish pride, since both know perfectly well their feelings are reprocicated. They're afraid of being themselves the reason, should the relationship not work. Kaguya, because she knows she lacks common sense and values of a normal person because of her screwed up family, and Shirogane because he feels firsthand everyday the difference in social status and between abilities between the two. Both are seeking reassurance by making the object of their affections dispel their doubts by confessing. Yet it never stops feeling like a comedy. It never goes full shoujo or full ecchi. It never insults the readerbase by putting the same old cliched based gags, the the comedy here is character driven, which shows the love that Aka has put in Kaguya. And you dare to compare it to the sellout abomination that was Nisekoi of all things? There's no point of comparison!

*Standing Clap*, Such High Taste
GIVE THIS GENTLEMAN A MEDAL!!!!

JUST

Hell yeah! This chapter saved my damn day today. Now I can go on fighting the problems at work - I got my dose of laughs and Shirogane.

 

This would've been a lot better, probably , if Kaguya's second was not a random classmate, but Ishigami. (I'm envisioning something like the scene from Wotaku no koi..)

Dude... Or girl, I don't know, it doesn't matter, let me tell you one thing: Bravo. 

 

Also, you just convinced me, after all those year, to read School Rumble. 

>Shirogane becomes prime minister

>Other world leaders gather around to watch him confess to Kaguya

World peace achieved!..... Maybe......

Honestly, I don't think a confession is possible until at least the entire nation got involved or something equally outlandish, and I'm not having it any other way.

>Shirogane becomes prime minister

>Other world leaders gather around to watch him confess to Kaguya

i'm waiting for the contra-election shenanigans that is ISHIGAMI.

SOOOOOOOOOOOOO CUUUUUUUUUUUTEEEEEEEEEE

To me, since Kaguya already is like a open book to Prez, she lost.

 

If I'm not wrong, at the beginning of the manga, the one who submitted to the other, lost. To me, (IMO) Kaguya has already submitted to Prez.

 

If I'm wrong, feel free to reject my idea~

They are suppose be equals but she really does seem to get portrayed as the weaker one at times.

DAMN RIGHT!  This is a god damn unique and lovely manga with wonderful characters and literally makes me click on the links as soon as they appear to read more!

BETA

another point is if they do confess that will be the END OF THE MANGA. Considering we were freaking out about it ending a few weeks ago, I think we can all agree we don't want the manga to end yet.

 

I wouldn't be disappointed if the author kept the real confession for the end since they've yet to disappoint me with a single chapter up to this point. However, I wouldn't be surprised if they just made a sequel called "Kaguya wants to be told 'I love you'" or something where they're in a relationship. Just because a title doesn't work anymore doesn't mean the story has to end, and I could see it being just as good, if not better.

I mean.

I see how you guys could be mad at this, I guess.

But honestly I think it was stupid to expect otherwise.

I was sitting here waiting for the "haha just do the speech" bit so what happened was still a great surprise for me.

 

Folks can bitch as much as they want about not getting the big instant jump to a confession that we all know won't actually happen, but if you look at the last three pages here and compare that to how things were at the beginning, the slow crawl of progress is pretty obvious.

 

Enjoy these dorks and their predictable fake-outs for what they are, and the good bits end up being much more enjoyable too. Don't ruin the experience for yourself by screaming "just kiss already" at every page. This slow build up is what'll make the hypothetical eventual payoff that much better.

Random question: Who's Tanaka? (page 13)

 

Maybe I'm overthinking things, but Akasaka-sensei has casually foreshadowed events before.

It's Nisekoi all over again.

I know this has to be bait but this triggers me so damn much I have to answer.

I'm sorry, but naming the chapter "Kaguya wants a confession" when the series title is "Kaguya wants to be confessed to" just reiterates the redundancy of the situation with its repetition.

Roll credit! *Ding*

Btw, how the hell this is a draw? It's clearly Kaguya's triumphant victory.

How are they able to name the chapter this? That's a final chapter title.


Or the beginning of a major movement in the story.

Seeing their classmates cheering them on is refreshing for me. In most manga I read, the classmates will always be the one who is extremely jealous about a romance development especially the guys. Grated they are mostly in harem manga but still.

Honestly, I don't think a confession is possible until at least the entire nation got involved or something equally outlandish, and I'm not having it any other way.

At least it's not as bad as nisekoi.
