The short answer is yes. 
In fact, it's addressed nice and quickly. It helps to frame important information about them too. 

Hmm, when? I just read the available chapters and don't think there was one. Or do you mean that rich people on here home planet do consume for taste? But that isn't really an explanation.

Without having read this thing, does the manga ever address why this alien apparently has taste buds and a digestive system if they get all their nutrients from the air?

On another note, anyone think that mother of the kid who pulled her ear looks like someone Pochi Goya made?

That bothers me too.

 

My guess is that their planet was once bountiful and only turned barren relatively recent. Kumika's species then developed the ability to absorb nutrients from the air, slowly making their taste buds and digestive system into a vestigial organ that still retains most of their original function.

You have to admit that amount of money is tiny when you think about how far the packet has to travel...

Yeah, current boring IRL tech can't even match that price for getting a small parcel up to low-Earth orbit, let alone another solar system.

just finished binge reading. this is one very cute series.

and eiria is an S-class waifu material.

Poor Eiria. None of the current cast is tall enough to give her one...

Tall no, strong enough? Pretty sure Chihiro could give her one.... considering his hand strength alone was enough to almost crush Izuru's skull into a million pieces lifting her up should pose no significant effort whatsoever.

Santa better bring the comments thread new pancreases for Christmas, because this chapter broke our current ones.

Oh my God, this chapter was sweet beyond belief... 

My cheeks hurt from the big, doofy grin reading this gave me.  Too sweet and innocent!  Can't wait for more.

So cute...

So pure...

So...

/dies.
