... I think this is only the second or third time I've seen anyone discuss having periods in a manga over the many years I've been consuming it.

 
The other manga that I know of that also discuss having periods is Shishunki Bitter Change. Is there other series that doing the same?

I've always wondered where this idea (common enough to be a cliche in Japan) that girls can't play sports while on their period came from. As a former high school soccer player and swimmer, that is not the case. Unless maybe for some people with unusually debilitating ones?? If everybody took one week off every month, we'd have been in pretty bad shape.

It's not every time, like Miki's mama said, the beginnings are kinda irregular and the most uncomfortable. And I think it just depends on the type of period... Some people get it worst than others. So, I'm just assuming that the worst become the "normal".

oh we know what those "other things" are, don't we, boys? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Umm, cause your uterine muscles are constantly clenching? I was always tired, even on light days. It's like doing any kind of clench for a couple days, even while sleeping. If that didn't happen to you, thank your lucky stars! We can do sports, but it's not easy, and this was Mikki's first so of course she didn't know how to adjust. She didn't quit, she could do it, but it wasn't her best....

I was always short of breath during sports like Mikki is depicted here and everything is pretty mild for me. I could still play decently, but it came with very great effort. And I definitely remember thinking that I felt heavy and sluggish while trying to sprint around the bases during softball games.

I really like how they talked about menstruation and periods as a time of change like that. It came at a really good thematic time and how everything happened was so realistic. It reminded me of when I got my first period! I like how everyone dealt with it very sensibly. Periods are a natural thing and is a significant part of a girl's life; I hope to see more shoujo manga presented it as such. I think this is only the second or third time I've seen anyone discuss having periods in a manga over the many years I've been consuming it.

Yea this last chapter felt pretty reminiscent of my own memories. I remember freaking out thinking I was doomed to wear a pad everyday for the rest of my life. Thankfully it wasn't quite that dramatic, albeit still the monthly annoyance of the female life. I also liked how this chapter showed it's ok for boys to have some awareness about it. While a girl may not want to announce she has her period, it isn't something shameful that needs to be hidden either.

After reading the latest chapter all I can think is, Miki... You're pants are white... T^T Goodbye cute shorts....

That and damn Nekota, I already knew you were smooth, but you just upped your game.

Now that I see them growing up, I really want that highschool arc.

Why hello there Nishikata!

But yea, considering the chapter's theme, that's probably the case.

...That or she got knocked up when they held bare hands (lewd!) two chapters ago. Hence the saying - No glove, no love.

So I went back to ch. 30 just to refresh my memory and I ran into Nekota thinking "How unusual.  She's thinking about something really hard."

I just lost it.  This manga has so many great little throwaway lines, mostly character driven.

 

Meanwhile, yeah, looks like red rice coming up.  Although it would be funny if despite all the talk about that kind of maturation stuff and the symptoms seeming classic, it turned out to be something totally irrelevant.

Oh... it's the beginning of a life long struggle that comes every month...
Uh oh. She cant get outta this one..

Mikki, please, PLEASE don't ignore that pain and just go to the beach. It'll turn into a horror show.

Okay, I'm calling all those guys who knows the correct lines to make your heart skip a beat "ramen" from now on.

Oh, dear.  This could get a bit sticky.  Things are looking . . . triangular.

 

But I have faith that this manga will not allow things to fester and get massively annoying.

Haruna dishin out some TRUTH.

Oh, Mikki....

Your heart pounded a little for him.---> Ask friend who's in love what she does when her heart pounds----> Days later figure out first person is in love too!!

Aw, guv, that sudden "Kansai" accent sure is cheeky as, makes me well chuffed. Nekota and Mikki sure are a couple of wazzocks, eh chaps?

 

*sips Kansai tea, fixes Osakan monocles, dons Kyotoan top hat*

I'm so glad I found this manga it's so cute and manages to feel really refreshing.

Oh God, it's going to turn out they were childhood friends and something happened to make her see his face as a cat but then she forgot, how cliche.

 

OR... they were childhood friends, but she's forgotten his name. I mean come on, she just said she couldn't even remember if it was a girl or boy. But, seeing his face as a cat is a recent development that keeps her mind from remembering him.

 

I want to know why her friend saw him the same way for a while. That doesn't sound like it's all in her head....

*screams*
