Description: 17-year-old Awaya Mugi and Yasuraoka Hanabi appear to be the ideal couple. They are both pretty popular, and they seem to suit each other well. However, outsiders don't know of the secret they share. Both Mugi and Hanabi have hopeless crushes on someone else, and they are only dating each other to soothe their loneliness. Mugi is in love with Minagawa Akane, a young teacher who used to be his home tutor. Hanabi is also in love with a teacher, a young man who has been a family friend since she was little. In each other, they find a place where they can grieve for the ones they cannot have, and they share a loneliness-driven physical intimacy. Will things stay like this for them forever?

Hanabi likes an older guy who is her "childhood friend" and a teacher at school. He likes another teacher, who is a heartless bitch. Other student likes her, though. And he fakes being a couple with Hanabi so they can break up their crushes and get a chance at dating them.

 

Hanabi's "girl friend" actually loves her and wants to be with her, but it's almost entirely one-sided romance. Then again, so are all other romances in this manga, so it seems.

 

You forgot Hanabi's boyfriend's younger childhood friend, who is also crushing hard on him but has no hope of reciprocation and therefore hates Hanabi.

Moral of this chapter... Love Sucks and it Hurts like Hell

I hope she manages to turn down her obsessive stalker female friend here...

The synopsis sounds so shoujo/josei. Bleh.

Well don't let it fool you. This manga is Seinen for a reason.

Yeah, although it seemed to me that the two mains were being a fake couple mostly just to keep other people out of their hair and to have someone around who understands and to sort of take their mind off things a bit.

Yep, really like how this manga keeps love relations so real XD!! And this does give me a kind of a turn on, specially the Akane type, where they are acting innocent >.>! Although it also gives me this negative-uncomfortable feeling XD!! ... GREAT MANGA

Uhh...

So can someone draw a relationship diagram for this manga?

First, if we're going to assume we can never know anything about anyone else's thought processes, then we're going to have to throw out most human interaction and almost all literature, and certainly all manga that have thought bubbles--like this one.  If it can show a character's thoughts, I can say what I think about the portrayal.  And I don't buy it.
Second, every time I see a syrupy heroine or something like that, people are tripping over themselves to say how unrealistic it is.  And I hardly ever see this kind of comeback to such claims even though there are plenty of real syrupy people.

Spoiler

I can pretty much agree with most stuff you said. And it's totally free to think of it as unrealistic (obviously). When I talk about realistic I mean it's quite possible to think that such a person exist somewhere on this world (I'd never call syrupy heroines unrealistic). Even if it's an extreme minority I still think it's possible they exist. And let's face it, most manga focus on this rare deviants that many will most likely never encounter in real life.

Spoiler

So yeah let me rephrase that one last sentence from before: You can only know a fraction of what a person is thinking never all of it. Even in Mangas with thought bubbles you can only find out so much about a person as the Mangaka wants to let you know till know. Quite often he adds little bits later on (Back to my wish of wanting more from Akane's point of view).

I am confused can someone message me how this complicated love web is happening I have gotten lost trying to understand this.  I want to read more but my head is going in circles trying to understand what is going on with this web.

The MCs are together because they're crushes are together with each other (and they weren't able to tell them their feeling because... manga), so they use each other as replacements while fantasizing about their crushes, also the girl he's in love with is a bitch.

Oh this seems interesting

...Ok then, time to turn around and head out.  Unless someone can convince me to stay.

Nope...depending on your preferences, it might be a good time to leave...not really sure why I'M still here even..

Well, whoever said many chapters (and comments) ago that the male teacher was pretty much the only character that deserved pity and consideration, was right; this chapter made feel real bad for the guy, those scenes of him and his mother really hit me like a kick to the liver. While reading the comments section I also found some comments that I think are a pretty good for the discussion of this story: 

  

  • "but this is getting into malignant narcissist territory" by madelinelime, well, I don't know if the female teacher character is realistic or not but in the story she is not just a narcissist in the coloquial sense of having a big ego, she is pathologically narcissistic, she is pretty much a sociopath. I think that you are quite right on that.  

 

  • "a general bias where people just equate dark with real" by Purple Library Guy, I really liked this sentence not just for discussing this manga but many others as well, that really seems to be a common attitude and I partly agree with your statement that she seems a little unrealistic because pretty much nothing good or positive about her has been showed so far, so she is pretty much a cumulus of concentrated evil while it has been proved that even some of the worst scums of humanity have some little little redeemable qualities, some of these people (that I will not refer by name because it could appear that I am trying to excuse them or reduce their faults, something that I am not trying to do) were able to show some human warmth.

I think we're discussing different levels of self-awareness. It's not that that the teacher thinks she's evil, but rather that she recognizes that the way she gets off is one which causes harm to others. She still wants to get off though, so she won't stop hurting others. She might be a high functioning sociopath, or she's just a weak willed person who is self-aware of their own motivations. I agree with you that she isn't necessarily more realistic than a super cheerful character.

 

I think a lot of the times when people complain about lack of realism in a cheery thing, it's because the cheeriness doesn't stop at the characters but infects the world around them. Even cheery people live in worlds that aren't particularly cheery. Or to put it another way, most things that are "dark" at least acknowledge the good times and the happy moments, even if they come few and far between, or they specify that the people being focused on are not average and so their adventures are drearier than the average person's. The ones that don't (Akame ga Kill) seem just as unrealistic as the happiest of shonens.

 

Super dark things aren't any more realistic than super happy things, but as a general trend I'd say I find darker things more realistic than happier things. That might be more of a reflection of darker things being aimed at an older audience, rather than a by product of grit of the show. It's a confusion of cause and effect. The effect is "realism" and most people think the cause is the grittiness, when it's really the target audience.

There are alot of different kind of humans on this world so saying it is unrealistic is too much.  Sexual arousal from despair and agony is something you won't witness in everyday life but it does exist.  also you never know how a person thinks unless you are the person itself.

First, if we're going to assume we can never know anything about anyone else's thought processes, then we're going to have to throw out most human interaction and almost all literature, and certainly all manga that have thought bubbles--like this one.  If it can show a character's thoughts, I can say what I think about the portrayal.  And I don't buy it.

I read ahead in the RAWS but the story moves forward so damn slowly. If people are hoping for faster development don't count on it.

Narcissistic personality disorder is really quite scary, other people mean nothing so much as they can be used to showcase yourself. I'd be glad you've never met any, I have and by gods was it ever unpleasant. As for what they actually think, we have absolutely no idea, beyond the best guess of some psychology genius. No one really knows what's going on in someone elses head beyond the physical and even then some of it's guesswork. 

 

Having known several, including family members, I can tell you that they 100% rewrite situations in their head to justify their terrible actions. They can do no wrong, think everyone owes them, and that they don't owe anyone else anything... but this is getting into malignant narcissist territory and I'm not sure how much it overlaps.

I dunno.  Who is this chick, the wicked stepmother from Snow White?  

I appreciate darkness sometimes, but it annoys me that writers going "dark" can get away with unrealism that they'd totally be called for if it was that unrealistic in a happy way.  I've never met a girl like that sensei, do they exist at all short of serial murderer territory?  (I've met women who probably act kind of like that sensei, but they don't think like that sensei)

 

It's she just an exaggerated idea of the girls who like popular guys? I mean why do some girls like a guy the more other girls like the same guy (ex. famous guys)? Isn't it based on the idea that they imagine themselves with the guy and other girls being jealous of them?

Sorry I'm a Sadist. Seeing other people suffer through this excites me currently the most. (Also need more from Akane's PoV)
