Volume 6 cover:

Spoiler

mmm I sneaked a peek at the raws and as always Kono does not disappoint :)

So great this manga I really enjoy reading it

Eeeeee, the bromance~

Man, this manga is so good!! I love all the things, characters, plot, setting and including the pace. If you have any doubt about start reading, just fucking do it!

 

So many feels!

The wait is always worth it

does anyone know what this series is up to? i've slogged my way through the chinese language scanlations after running out of squid scans and they are up to 22. is that the latest chapter in square jump?

The bromances, budding romances. I just feel all warm and fuzzy inside :)

Once again, thanks for the release. It may be moving slowly but is a lovely manga ^_^

For those that read this, can we all at least take the time to thank the scanlators on their website? It is rough work and you need to put a lot of hours into typesetting, redrawing, proofreading, and translating. Also, Squid scans does it for free, without asking for much.

Please thank them.

 

Thank you for your kind words. Trust me, readers thanking on Batoto is enough because I do read them :))) Most Batoto users acknowledge the scanlator's presence, unlike some of the readers from other mangahosting sites. 

Hmm, this manga deserves more than a 4.5, but not as much as a 5. Too bad I have to decide between 4 or 5. 
So I give it 5 of 5, because the only bad part about it is the for Shounen typical bad guy enemy (that Vice President/Chairman in the first chapters), even though the entire manga is definitely Seinen. He feels out of place in this story, tacked on even. If he really had to be in there, I think it could've been done smoother, more natural, less stereotypically shallow. That's it, he's too shallow for this manga.

 

 

That said, this is a real piece of art though. Definitely worth reading. The score is really accurate too. And the shallowness only lasts so long, luckily it doesn't really destroy anything for realsies.

Takezou/Kurusu ship ready to set sail, captain!! *salutes*
I love how Takezou is fundamentally mean only to Kurusu. I love ships that bring out the best in each other <3 kekeke


Look me in the eyes and tell me they aren't perfect.

Yeah, you could see it in their eyes on page 34.

 

ಠ_ಠ

 

i'll personally hope its page 19 although you're right, that romantic atmosphere on 34 just seems more beautiful.

Ah the love interest flag has been raised.

I love this manga so much! I don't know how to explain it, I just love it.
This chapter was exactly what I wanted, especially about how Kurusu took care of Takezou, they are so cute together!

Spoiler

 

I approve of this!

Hurrah!  Thanks for the chapter.  Nice chapter as usual, although it's funny . . . this strikes me as a big transition, big significant steps taken, but it feels surprisingly low key.

This was a really good chapter, Takezou finally found his resolve, stood up for his friends, and there was some nice development between him and Kurusu! This was definitely a good chapter!
Thanks so much Fried Squid Scans! And take your time with the updates, we're all patient people here!

Bromance and that "Don't talk about mah future waifu this way" moment were great. You can do it four eyes-kun!

 

Kurusu showing us why she was / is a queen bee, all that social skill mastery.

 

I was so happy that a new chapter was out! Thanks Jae and Fried Squid Scans for the hard work!

 

Each chapter is just a heart-warming experience, even when it gets rough.

Yeah, I was wondering why there weren't any releases lately... Haha! :3
It's okay! It's ONLY been 29 days (30 now, I think; that's like the normal release date for manga), and I've seen mangas that haven't been updated in over a year... It could be worse... (Although I hope it doesn't get worse XD)
We'll live, and we'll wait, albeit impatiently. I like to think that the wait is part of the experience! o/ XD

Thank you very much for your hard work!

Hey guys,

Since I feel the need to justify for the lack of updates (it's been 29 days.... Sorry!), I'm going to throw in a justification. As of now, I'm the only active typesetter in the group, so please have patience in Fried Squid Scans as I try to balance other series too. Sorry, I'll try to get the next chapter typeset ASAP.

 

Thanks,

Jae

I wish everyone would just leave Takezou alone. So what if he has dreams? So what if he's serious? So what if he's passionate about what he loves? Tell me, now, how is that laughable? How is that lame?!?

 

Ugh, just...ugh. I'm really surprised he hasn't imploded by this point, with even his family (apparently) treating him like a failure, a coward, a time-waster. It takes a lot of mental strength to just bottle it up like that - but it's not healthy at all. He'll break down, sooner or later. Man, I have no idea how this situation can be fixed.

They don't take him seriously, because he's unable to stand up for himself.

Happens all the time, he needs confidence and like most people lacking in that regard he knows that.

He just doesn't know how to get some.
