By now, I'm just fairly curious to see how far you're willing to take this.

*sigh*

You're right, let's bring logic everywhere. It totally doesn't ruin the manga.

Just marry her already ><

hishiro, you are so dumb that you make me laugh XD

Lol, I lost it at the last sketch with Hishiron. Are we not satisfied??

I'm on Hishiro's side. I ship Aki and Inukai~ (it only took Hishiro to open mah eyes).

Oh there was suspicion, mostly based on it being quite easy to be used to handwave away most of the drama and problems, many hoped it wouldn't be used as a cop out because it would be so cheap and predictable.. Doesn't change that since the reveal pretty much all the problems are artificial red tape the author decided to just randomly come up with aswell as moronic misunderstandings.

The misunderstandings seem ridiculous to us on the outside because we have the ability to see the whole plot. Further, we have the ability to understand what's going on from an outsiders perspective. This is flawed though as the point is to understand the story from Their point of view. We are given essentially two main characters and that allows us to put ourselves into their shoes and understand the world from their point of view. 
Even with the reveal, all the plot problems and drama are based on a central premise: How fleeting events are. If this most recent chapter didn't help you to understand this most basic plot point, then I'm sorry but why are you even reading this? This problem of how fleeting things are has helped to shape the story and each individual characters growth. Right now we have moved from other problems that have been resolved, but the biggest one stands before us plot wise. How do Kazaki and Hishiron~ get over their individual blocks and accept that something being fleeting is precisely why they shouldn't worry about what could happen and whether they could be deleted from another persons memory. Getting around that block and working forward from understanding the importance of each individual moment (A major theme in a lot of really good movies by the way) to embracing things because they are impermanent in order to have a fulfilling life.
By the way, this story has a lot of real nice Buddhist lessons inside of it. The struggle between balancing attachment and life, understanding and being compassionate for others, helping them to get through their suffering and arriving at an emotional and spiritual state where they no longer feel suffering. All great stuff in the end. 
To say that a lot of this is contrived and artificial in nature seems to be ignoring the context for why this all exists. Further, it gives indications of permanence to come with them both being subjects. Knowing that they are both subjects frames the minor tragedy a bit better and allows us to see where the romance could go in the future. 

Just read the past 3 latest chapters and seeing the Robot remark from Aki and the last panel of Hishiron's face made me do this:

Thanks for the releases Whiteout Scans~

Ever since the whole "Haha, she's also doing ReLIFE" cop out the story is basically just dragging on. Any and all of the drama is pretty much pointless and could be resolved fairly easily and most of it is artificially being introduced through various red tape the author had to come up with to justify the story not being solved in a single chapter. What a bummer.


It wasn't a cop out. It was completely logical after we learned that as a child Hishiro struggled with social anxiety. We knew that Subject 1 also kept their distance from everyone and didn't have a successful ReLife a a result. Based on the characters that were introduced to us, she was the most plausible candidate. I thought it was pretty clear. That's not a copout at all. A copout would be someone random introduced or someone that doesn't make sense, solely to garner poorly written "shock value."

Besides, the conflicts are far from over. Hishiro is the one becoming more confident and eager to change while Kaizaki is the one becoming depressed at everyone forgetting him, even if he is the one unintentionally guiding them along a proper path.

Domo Arigato, Hishiron-Roboto.

    Domo.   Domo. ♫ 

I haven't laughed at Hishiro's antics in a while! XD

Hishiron's broken robot face is hilarious.

A number of us saw the Hishiro was subject 1 twist coming about 50 chapters in. It's not a cop out if it was indicated from the beginning.

There were always problems the story had since the beggining, the pace was always slow, all drama was injected on the plot in the same manner, i still remember people not liking how EVERY arc was dragged on.

 

The volleyball arc for example (and suprise, suprise that arc was to setup future information about the experiment *gasp*)

 

If the plot have gone the natural way since day 1 Kaizaki wouldn't even take an dubious drug from somebody strange from the street and accepting an offer too good to be true.

 

When you people come with this stuff, the obvious thing that always comes to mind is since somebody else story didn't go YOUR way, NOW these things are the problem after all this time.

 

Because the setup was so obvious the story was going this way, i can't fathom why people react to this only now...

 

Even like this i do like the story, i just find hypocritical that such small change turn so much someone's opinion and justify with stuff that  was always been was part of the package.

Here, right here. A sophistry. This is the point where you completely disregarded your seemingly precious logic in order to prove your point.
Yes, deliberately placing children in a hazardous situation is, in fact, a form of abuse. No, you cannot leave your kids in a wolf's den and actually expect no retribution if they somehow make it out in one piece. It doesn't even matter whether or not they are aware of the danger. It's not their job to be, it's yours. By law.

Abuse isn't defined by actual harm. There is such a thing as "safety".

Here it comes, false claim. No, there is no danger just from introducing adults to the environment. Otherwise, having janitors in schools would be dangerous as well, as those clearly lack "qualifications regarding child care or education", which are only required, well, for child care and education, not for just talking with people as equals.

 

And safety is "potential harm", where the probability of such harm is supposed to be high. No such thing in high school setting, where the only danger from interacting with an adult stems from the abuse of authority over a minor, which - guess what - cannot possibly happen.

I don't know how to explain this to you in any more simple fashion, VawX, you're just wrong, and on any number of points.

 

Which part of "Batoto looks to MangaUpdates as an authority on tagging" are you not getting? How is it you're so blithely passing over that simple fact to say, "Oh, but we can make it that if we feel like it"?

 

Well, whatever, I really just don't have the time to waste talking to you any more.

While anyone can add tags on MU, you're quite incorrect if you think that's all there is to it.......in the case of category tags, there is a system in place whereby downvoting will remove said tag, and in particular with their genre tags, they're actually quite strictly policed.

 

Why don't you head on over there and add the tragedy and drama tag to this and see how long it stays there? Better yet, why don't you do that repeatedly and see how long it takes before you've got a big red "you've got a message" at the top of your page, where the staff is advising you to cut the shit :)

 

Batoto adopted MU's tagging criteria and looks to MU as an authority on such......so no, "if it suits Batoto members/then it's okay" ain't how it works. That attitude is what leads to incorrect tags being applied and everybody else on the site (that isn't wise enough to go to MU and vet this site's stuff)  being misled about what a title actually contains.

Were you talking about genre or categories mmm...~?
I've been adding and updating genre of mangas in Mangaupdates for several years now, the process is just as simple as Batoto, ofc if you troll the genre will be removed but if other people think that the genre is on point that it will stay there mmm...

So now it's a matter of taste and preference, if Mangaupdates doesn't add Tragedy genre in their database doesn't mean that Batoto need the exact same genres and categories since we have different community even though some of us are in both mmm...

It's not like I prefer the tragedy tag to be added, but if that's what Batoto in general see how this manga should be tagged then why not mmm...~?

they had a staaaaaaand last year

They definitely could because it could be seen as an improvement and moving forward and if it's anything like a real company with a lot of board members, heads, etc then they'd put it to a vote on what to do and I think the majority would come to the conclusion to leave them alone or come to an agreement or at least this hope, but then again we have seen a few of them and they seem heartless so it may be reaching.
Still possible though don't you agree?
Since Hishiro likes Arata then that means she wants to "touch him, and be touched in return". Hishiro wants to "flourish" with Arata.

Oh, and by the way, you're right. I'm sure the UN define their laws with nothing but leeway in mind. That's why no government has ever refrained from signing when a decree clashed with their agenda. /s

Now, can't we just be happy Hishiro is back (even for just one, cute, little panel)? I sure am.
