The misogynistic main characters in Bakuman were way more revolting than Kawai.  The Pedophile main character in Twilight is way more disgusting than a teenager that is self-centered.  The bar hostess in Omoino-Kakera that lets her lesbian patrons take advantage of a middle schooler she lured in is pretty depraved.

i've read more than 600 mangas, maybe more than 100 western comics, i've watched more 400 than movies... (I just realized i REALLY should get a job...) and never a character bothered me so much as this "Miki Kawai" does... so is it just me or has she been depicted as a completely hateful character?

 

More like an entirely oblivious character, which kinda makes her hateful due to her self-centered behavior.

En esa ocasión fuimos trolleados por el traductor. LOL

there's an official version being released on crunchyroll. This is the link to chapter 50: http://www.crunchyroll.com/comics_read/manga?volume_id=763&chapter_num=50.00

i think you can only read the latest chapter (not sure.)

 

The most recent chapter is ALWAYS available for FREE at CR's site every Tuesday and it is for an entire week. Afterwards, you must purchase a subscription in order to read all previos chapters.

why there is no more english translation on batoto ?

With the latest chapter just having been released, I hope that the story finally progresses.

Too much exposition during the past few months... although the insight in Uneo's thought process was fairly interesting.

 

What do you guys think will happen now?

Personally I believe there will be a drastic change in personality in Ishida (for the worse) with his depression acting up.

 

I don't thonk so. At least, now he can ease up a bit because he had saved Shouko by some means. The last thing will be attitude of the others around her when he wake up. The best for him at that moment will be her tear for him and a smile for herself :).

Yay, a Mashiba chapter!

 

Kawai is too self-centered, Ueno too selfish. Nagatsuka is too clingy, Sahara too acquiescent. Nishimiya and Ishida are both too hard on themselves. 

 

When aerisheir commented this, I realize that it was intentional that every character had their own particular fault - but until now, we were not able to determine what Mashiba's fault was.  This was a good chapter to see that.

 

We can see that of the entire crew, Mashiba is, if we haven't realized it yet, brilliant - the fact that he can see through Kawaii's charade says it within itself.  But we now realize that his real reasons for associating with Ishida (to make himself seem normal) and his motivation for being a teacher (to bury his desire to be normal by being the definition of normal [yet being in position of power with children.... I roll my eyes there])

 

Wacky.

The Satoshi Mashiba chapter!!!

 

He is by far the least developed character and have the weakest presence. We all know that he is the white knight, but this chapter revealed his dark side. It looks like he is planning something sinister for the kid, but damn that is twisted. He looks creepy since the beginning and maybe that was the author was going for.

 

Mashiba was able to piece out the truth behind Kawai and the bullying. 

 

But I'm still lost for his motivations. He wanted to be near Ishida to validate his plan to possibly ruin the child of his bullies? The fact that Ishida was trying to fix his mistakes showed Mashiba how wrong he is? 

That smile is creepy though.

This chapter made me realize why Kawai grosses me out.

her ability to lie to herself is creepy as hell, even moreso than her narcissism.

Mashiba has a good moral compass but needs to fix  a few things.

 

Kawai can tell right from wrong but is blind to her own actions. Her wall took a few hits in these last two chapters, let's hope it crumbles.

 

As for Ueno, good job on Kawaii (never thought I would say this) on laying the truth on her and on Shouya's mom by making her feel unconfortable by being nice.

Gracias Café con Lenin c:

Me agrada Mashiba.

I can't believe we only have a few chapters left... I don't want a sad ending :(

It only ends in November. That means, we still have around 11 chapters. Enough to even finish that movie.

D:

NO MANGA THIS WEEK. 

I can't believe we only have a few chapters left... I don't want a sad ending :(

NO MANGA THIS WEEK. 

A Kawai-centered chapter - and we finally get to see inside her head.  She sees everyone else as pretty much "faceless" - I doubt this is the same reason as Ishida, where he sees people as "fake" - more of Kawai sees these people as just figures that lack "cuteness", or character.  She takes so much pride in herself and her 'justice' that those that have no meaning in her life might as well be... just there.

 

That said, even though I now understand her, I still hate her.  Yes, we now know for what reason she does things, but her reasoning is far, FAR worse than Ueno - Kawai sees no wrong in her actions, whereas at least Ueno knows that she resorts to violence too easily and is aware that there is something wrong (even though she still doesn't see what she does to Shouko as wrong, which obviously leads to some hate considering that Shouko is our main heroine).  

 

And to think: we were probably like this when we were all teens!

Kawai is too self-centered, Ueno too selfish. Nagatsuka is too clingy, Sahara too acquiescent. Nishimiya and Ishida are both too hard on themselves. While none of these qualities are necessarily bad to have, balancing them all out can be difficult, almost impossible - but it's a part of growing up. I can still see parts of myself reflected in all of these characters in some way. Hopefully we'll see everyone mature in some way by the end of this - Sahara and Nagatsuka have already changed. Though personally, I wouldn't mind if Kawai didn't change - it would just go to show that some people never realize their faults. Eventually they'll be called out on it, and by that point, it's too late.

just read the one-shot(chapter 0) and i gotta say those kids are really scary...since when are kids that scary, i just graduated from high school for five years and never seen such things before...
