I feel sorry for the school that went last.

This manga deserves an anime. Instead of the usual half-assed adaptations of generic/cliche Light Novels we get every season, this would surely make a great anime.

Ahhhh...such a satisfying chapter!  Kouta is so adorable, and Chika is quite the (little) lady killer :P  

Any ideas what the chapter title '1/14' means? The outcome was pretty predictable but still executed well. Think my favourite bit was the Chika-Kazusa-Nene interaction :)

The chapter is called 1/14 in reference to what is discussed in this page: only one school out of the 14 can go to the nationals.

Damn youuuu for making me cry first thing in the morning T_T

Any time Chika is overcome by emotion just destroys me.  Every.  Single.  Time.

those tear faces are really effective, but Chika show us pure an adultered emotion

it's always this thing with him

I soo want to find the music from this manga <3

What a wonderful chapter, I'm with you Kudou the feels this chapter were overwhelming.

I was so, so scared that they were going to end the chapter right before the announcement. A cliffhanger like that would have destroyed me.

 

Also, while I love this whole cast Chika is slowly becoming one of my favorite characters in manga in general. He's a legitimately good human being but he's far from the bland "nice MC" trope: he kept a huge part of that abrasive, slightly cocky attitude that you'd usually assign to delinquents and as a result he's a blast to watch. Brutal honesty, a total lack of tact, but also genuine desire and determination to connect with others and with music. It's a great mix for a character.

 

Then again, any one of the main four(Chika, Hotsuki, Takezou, Hiro) are well written enough that they could carry a manga into the "readable" category on their own. The fact that their interactions with one another feel real most of the time is what pushes this into the higher tiers of music/sports manga imo.

oh my god, i'm so emotional....

 

the plot development is so obvious!!! why does this manga make me cry every time???

This release was an unexpected and beautiful surprise!! Thank you so much!

This gem really deserves a well-made anime adapation. And movies. PLEASE MAKE IT HAPPEN RIGHT NOW FOR GOD'S SAKE.

I second and third that

The closer I get to the last of the translated chapters, the more I put off reading this manga. Let this moment last forever... yeah, I get it. I get it.

I was so worried for a second there, because of the kimono lady...

Reading the latest chapter at the start of the day...

Plot Twist: Then the series ended... (a joke to balance my near-cried-heart)

Was just reading an some comedy harem before this. Just shows why this manga is so freaking good. The slow pace and the detailed backstory make this work so emotional.

Although it was obvious that Tokise would win my heart was still throbbing.

 

PS: those onion cutting ninjas are the worst

Me rn

I must have timed travel to feudal japan and became an onion farmer with a bunch of ninjas surrounding me. And man let me tell you those boys know how to cut them onions.

I'm so glad that didn't end in a cliffhanger. I'm not crying, you're crying!

Beautiful.

Why yes, I did buy the CD so that I could listen to Tenkyuu while re-reading the last chapters :D
